The 2016 China-Bashing Race

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — When it comes to foreign policy, American presidential candidates have often found it easy, even beneficial, to criticize China. In recent decades, China's growing economic, military and political clout has generated concern among many voters in this country. Frankly, there has been plenty to criticize, including Beijing's reprehensible treatment of its own citizens.

Showing Courage on Iran

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Intense lobbying and heated (often demagogic and hateful) rhetoric has made deciding whether to support the Iran nuclear deal an excruciating process for many members of Congress. None have come under more pressure and scrutiny than Jewish-American lawmakers. And among those, Representative Jerrold Nadler stands out.

Robert Menendez Offers Unrealistic Plan for Iran

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — It was disappointing, although not unexpected, that Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has declared his opposition to the Iran nuclear deal. He has been skeptical, bordering on hostile, from the start.

Bad Decision by Senator Schumer

Does America Still Believe in Diplomacy?

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — President Obama has never seemed so sure-footed on foreign policy as now, when he is battling against determined opponents to persuade the American public and Congress on the merits of the Iran nuclear deal.

Lessons From the Past on Negotiating with Iran

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Republicans in Congress have gotten a lot of mileage, and headlines, out of being glibly contemptuous of the Iran nuclear deal. Some of them charged on Thursday, with barely disguised disgust, that President Obama and his negotiating team were "fleeced" and "bamboozled" by the Iranians who will gain access to $50 billion in assets now frozen in overseas banks and be able to pursue a civilian nuclear energy program if they abide by the agreement.

In Israel, Some Support the Iran Deal

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — As far as Americans go, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pretty much drowned out other Israeli voices on the nuclear deal between Iran and the major powers. He has called it a "historic mistake." On Wednesday, his ambassador to Washington, Ron Dermer, met 40 conservative members of Congress as part of a full-court Israeli push to persuade American lawmakers to vote down the accord.

When Will Chuck Schumer Weigh In on Iran?

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Journalists don't usually have to ask Senator Chuck Schumer for his opinions. The New York Democrat, who is the front-runner to become his party's leader in the Senate after Senator Harry Reid retires, has a well-deserved reputation for being all too eager to share, and often overshare, his views on issues large and small.

How to Get Smart About Iran

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — With less than a week to go before the June 30 deadline for a nuclear deal between Iran and the major powers, there is an intensifying debate in Washington about the strengths and weaknesses of any agreement that might emerge.

An Optimist’s View of Russia

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — With his invasion of Crimea, deployment of troops and weapons to eastern Ukraine and ruthless oppression at home, President Vladimir Putin of Russia has steered his country far off the democratic track. The promise of the early 1990s, when the collapse of the Soviet Union seemed to usher in a new era of rights and freedoms, is over.
