The growing likelihood of President Obama signing a deal with Iran that provides the mullahs with a pathway to nuclearization makes this the single most pressing issue of the day. A nuclear Iran will spawn a new sort of nuclear arms race that makes the cold war look like a simple game of “Pong” by comparison. All of this was summed up brilliantly by Charles Krauthammer when he joined my program last week:
KRAUTHAMMER: “I think we are assured of a truly catastrophic arms race in the Middle East, where the Saudis are going to go nuclear, the UAE, probably, Egypt, probably Turkey, and if we thought that two-sided deterrence, we and the Soviets for 50 years was difficult, risky and we came within an inch of nuclear war in the Cuban Missile Crisis, imagine what five-sided deterrence is like in a region that’s the most unstable in the world. That’s what Obama has bequeathed us.”
President Obama is pushing the world to the brink very big war in the Middle East. That will be Obama’s legacy.
