In the West, liberal politicians and pundits are calling for renewed diplomatic engagement with Iran, convinced that Tehran will respond to reason and halt its nuclear weapons program. Yet, countries have repeatedly tried diplomatic talks and utterly failed.

    irans nuclear threat

    "the rise of nuclear iran" is a very hard to put down bestseller. the book has docuents and letters in it and color photos that show iran and its political leaders are planning and building nuclear weapons. the arthur has done alot of research and shows how this country is pushing militaristic aims to break the peace in the middle east and sell possible atomic weapons to terrorists and other rough countrys. this book gave me a very fasinating insight into world affairs. great gift idea for a friend or family member or local library.
