Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

“Chinese and Russians can only roll their eyes,” he wrote. “These norms and rules mean nothing to them. … Obama cites modern rules; Russia and China, animated by resurgent nationalism, are governed by ancient maps.”

Krauthammer warned the “alignment of the world’s two leading anti-Western powers” marks a “major alteration in the global balance of power.”

He said that if the Russian and Chinese global resurgence is “carried through, it would mark the end of a quarter-century of unipolarity.”

“And it would herald a return to a form of bipolarity – two global coalitions: one free, one not.”

 

Woolsey Slams Nuclear Negotiations With Iran 

Former CIA director James Woolsey slammed President Obama’s continued nuclear talks with Iran as “positively Chamberlain-eqsue.”

Woolsey also warned in a radio interview Sunday that the Iranians are playing dangerous games while forging ahead with the development of a nuclear weapons capability.

Asked on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s AM 970 The Answer for his thoughts on the nuclear agreement, Woolsey stated, “It’s not only not the smartest thing, it is positively Chamberlain-eqsue.”

Continued Woolsey: “There is no chance that Iran is going to abide by limitations which keep it from moving very, very far along the road to having nuclear weapons. Might it stop a few weeks short for public relations purposes? Yes. Maybe. It doesn’t matter.

“[Iran] is enriching uranium and we have given it permission in the negotiations to do that and it can be very, very close to having nuclear weapons and everybody who analyzes this who is objective knows that.”

Woolsey headed the CIA under the Bill Clinton presidency from 1993 until January, 1995.

He likened Iran’s negotiating gambit to a “lethal” game of chess.

“The Persians invented chess,” he told this reporter. “And they are good at it, and one thing they are good at doing is messing around on one side of the board doing things that attract attention while very carefully on the other side of the board when they get a chance they are moving the pawn down to the King’s row to convert it into a queen, the most lethal piece, the analogy being to nuclear weapons.”
