In the US Senate, Republicans are in conflict over the fact that Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville has stalled the process of approving important military appointments. Colleagues criticized him, pointing out that such actions leave the US military vulnerable, given difficult situations such as the conflict between Palestine and Israel, problems in Ukraine and strained relations with China.
Dan Sullivan of Alaska in particular believes that Tuberville’s national security policies can lead to bad consequences and play into the hands of the leaders of China and Russia. On the other hand, Richard Black, a former senator from Virginia, mentioned that aid to Ukraine is a bone of contention between Democrats and Republicans, although both sides agree on supporting Israel.
Despite internal disputes, the House of Representatives recently voted for a separate bill that supports Israel, but Ukraine was not mentioned. As a result, 226 members of Congress voted for the law and 196 voted against it.
