US Passes Several Bills in Solidarity with its Long Standing Support for Wars Across the Globe

The US has passed a number of pivotal policy bills that would see a staggering $95 billion in foreign war and military funds, a possible ban on TikTok in the country, the seizure of frozen Russian sovereign acts and even more sanctions on Iran. 

The Israel Security Supplemental was approved by a landslide vote of 366 against 58.

The bill also includes a ban on sending funds to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), all while Gaza’s 2.2 million people are now living on the brink of famine. 

The funding package comprises $26.4 billion in aid to the occupation entity, $4 billion for the Iron Dome and David’s Sling missile, which was likely damaged by retaliatory attacks from Iran and Lebanon, and $1.2 billion for the Iron Bean defense system. 

$4.4 billion was secured to stock up military items and services while $3.5 billion is for the procurement of advanced weapons systems.

This even includes $9.2 billion in public assistance which includes emergency food, shelter and basic services to people “experiencing crises.” It also seeks to provide more flexibility for transfers of military hardware to the Israeli regime from US stock, which has been stored in other countries. 

The bill includes sanctions on ports and refininers that work with Iranian oil, sanctions on any party supplying or selling Iranian equipment used for missiles and drones program, as well as further restrictions on exports of US-made goods and technology to Iran. 

The bill further authorizes the executive branch to “seize and transfer” frozen Russian assets in the US to Kiev. 

The Chinese Giant Social Media company TikTok was also given nine months to sell the app or face banning from the US app store.

The US has also allocated $8 billion to Taiwan to fight China in the Indo-Pacific region with another $3.3 billion for submarine infrastructure. This also includes $2 billion in foreign military funding for Taiwan and other regional parts, with $1.9 billion secured to replace military equipment and services for the “island and allies in the religion.”

The other $61 billion package has been allocated to Ukraine with a whopping $61 billion in military aid for Ukraine and other US regional allies.
