Biden tells UN that US doesn’t seek ‘new Cold War’

President Joe Biden used his first address before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday to declare that the world stands and at an “inflection point in history” and must move quickly and cooperatively to address the festering issues of the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and human rights abuse.

Amid growing China tensions Biden also declared the U.S. is “not seeking a new Cold War.” Without mentioning China directly, Biden acknowledged increasing concerns about rising tensions between the two nations.

Even as Biden told the UN this week that the US is no longer at war, +3K troops remain arrayed across Iraq & Syria; small SOF forces operate in Somalia & Yemen; and military prepares for an ongoing air campaign in Afghanistan.
