Foreign desk: Russia, China Back a Nuclear Iran

“Iran has secured great-power patronage for the first time in four decades,” warn Reuel Marc Gerecht & Ray Takeyh at The Wall Street Journal.

Russia, China and Iran “all want to diminish American power” and “recognize that they need to help each other militarily and economically to achieve common goals.”

So now, thanks to Tehran’s “developing alliances with Russia and China,” it “likely has no significant technical hurdle left to clear on its way to a nuclear weapon.”

Meanwhile, “a growing conventional wisdom in Washington counsels a shift of focus” away from the Middle East and toward Asia.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman “made a sensible calculation with his recent Chinese-brokered compact with Tehran.”

“Without the US, the Middle East is sorting itself out.”
