Obama the Nuclear Naive


Robert Costa from NRO asks former Reagan Secretary of the Navy, John Lehman, to explain why China won't cooperate with the President on Iranian nukes.
“Why should China pull our chestnuts out of the fire?” Lehman asks. “Iran is no threat to them. It’s na├»ve of the president to think that somehow he can create a common interest with China or somehow persuade them to bring pressure on Iran when Iran supplies a significant portion of its oil. When Iran is tying us in knots that actually suits the Chinese down to a T.”

Side note: a crescent moon as the symbol of this conference?
