Taking on Tehran: Strategies for Confronting the Islamic Republicby Ilan Berman
Pub. Date: 03/29/2007
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
"Today, the United States faces no greater foreign threat than that from the Islamic Republic of Iran. And while the American public better understands this challenge with every day that passes, it is incumbent on our leaders in Washington, D.C., to complement this awareness with action. Without a comprehensive policy that marshals all of our national assets and international leverage, Iran will march into the opening decades of the twenty-first century defiant, belligerent, virulently anti-American, and armed with a nuclear weapon."
