tempers our judgments?

 
 
Reply Sat 12 Sep, 2015 10:04 am
(1) Does " tempers our judgments" refer to "restrains our judgments"?
(2) Does "National Guard Officer" refer to that Mr.Andrews is a National Guard Officer?

Context:

1) The potential volatility of Chinese society and politics tempers our judgments on short-term probabilities.

2) Prepared under the auspices of William Andrews, National Guard Officer. Inquiries may be directed to Mr. Andrews.

@oristarA,
Here "temper" means to modify or moderate.

I've never seen "National Guard Officer."

It should have his office stated:
Lieutenant, U.S. Army, National Guard.

He would not be addressed as "Mr."
