In the midst of the chaotic situation in Iraq, the highly worrying developement in Lebanon, the steady progress of Iran’s efforts to build nuclear weapons and extend their sphere of power, and many other things, it is easy to get lost in tactics, and miss the bigger picture. In an excellent article Charles Krauthammer analyses the strategic outlook, in a very clear sighted way, providing what I would agree with is a correct picture of where we stand and what challenges we currently face.
You can find the article here, and I strongly recommend that you read it. Dr Krauthammer provides insights to the threats of Iran and its henchmen, on the situation in Iraq, and gives a broader perspective on where we are in this unipolar world. Don’t miss it!
