    Insightful and Well Reseached Book that must be read.

    Michael Evans has written a well reseached, well thought out book in Showdown with Nuclear Iran: Racical Islam's Messianic Mission to Destroy Isreal and Cripple the United States. The book is filled with accurate information, which leads to its credability and so, the author's main point about how the present Iranian administration is, in reality, a sitting dynamite keg waiting to explode in the Middle East. And the truth is, that those sitting in the West are fully aware of this. It makes me wonder how prepared the West actually was in preparing for the eventual confrontation that will occur with Iran once the issues of Iraq heat up (I did say 'heat up') and Sadam Hussein's conviction and sentencing occurs. Interestingly, it will be further interest to see what Iran's position on Nuclear disamrmament will be once North Korea moves ahead with its announced plans to test one of their warheads. The facts are inescapable: the Iranian government has clearly stated its position that it intends to rid the world of Isreal. We've been there before: his name was Adolph Hitler. The places were a divided Germany. How far off are we today with a disheveled Middle East and a maniac desireous of mass extermination? In his pointed writing style, Michael Evans demonstrates that he is not a war-monger, but a person who believes that freedom is not free and liberty is an ongoing experiment worthy of protecting.

    Timely, accurate and disturbing.

    This is a timely and gripping investigation into how Iran has allegedly, through deception, concealment and great determination, sought to become a nuclear power. The book at times reads at the pace of a novel but the subject matter is anything but fiction. Having studied the Middle East for some three decades the subject of this excellent, eminently readable and well written study is not new to me. Indeed it is something that I have personally monitored closely for some time now. That said I can only applaud the thoroughness with which the relevant issues have been addressed. The amount of detail provided throughout, together with the appropriate references/sources are indeed highly commendable. With due reference to the recent conflict Israel and Hezbollah, cited in the text as being a proxy of the Iranian government on it's unholy mission to destroy Israel in the name of world jihad, the book illustrates how Iran is described as having allegedly used the above conflict to distract the world while it continues it's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Both Israel and the US described as being 'slated for destruction' in pursuit of such a jihad. The content of this study appears to be asking the question 'what will it take for the international community to understand that in order to create a nuclear-armed Islamic Republic that could trigger the kind of global conflagration that the Iranian PM envisions will set the stage for the end of the world'. With this in mind the book addresses in no uncertain terms what is alleged to be the Iranian President Mahmoud's Ahmadinejad's 'mystical pre-occupation' with the coming of a Shiite Islamic messiah figure described in the text as the 'Mahdi'. Issues which the book cites as allegedly not being fully comprehended by either the international community or the United States. Perhaps central to the detailed analysis of this work is the attitude of Iran and it's leaders to the Jewish state of Israel. The reader is shown how Mahmoud Ahmedinijad, while denying the Jewish Holocaust, the Iranian PM is simultaneously presenting Iran's very own ' Final Solution' of the Jewish 'problem'. Reference being made to recent statements from Iranian leaders to the effect that they will purportedly not be satisfied with anything less than 'the complete obliteration of the Zionist regime from the political map of the world'. The relevance of further such statements from the Iranian PM that 'Israel must be wiped off the map', that 'Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury' and that the Jewish nation 'cannot survive' and is headed 'towards extinction' are given due attention within the context of Iran's alleged pursuit of nuclear weapons. Iran's spiritual leader, Hashemi-Rafsanjani, is also quoted as saying, '[The] application of an atomic bomb would not leave anything in Israel - but the same thing would just produce damages in the Muslim world'. While analysing how Iran is moving ahead with the development of long-range ballistic missiles capable of striking targets 3,500 kilometers (2,150 miles) away (capable of striking parts of Europe, Israel and coalition forces in the Gulf), the study also presents interviews with leading political and military figures which investigate the possibility that Iran is developing a nuclear arsenal as a mechanism to set off a chain reaction of death resulting in the destruction of a third of the world's population in order to facilitate the arrival of the Mahdi. The role and involvement of such nations as Russia and Chin, together with their strategic alliances in relation to the Iranian regime are also studied in some depth. Also analysed are the difficulties confronting the US, Israel and the international community in both preventing Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons, together with the risks & difficulties of any potential military operation with reference to destroying the Iranian n
