And so the clock ticks closer.... This book seeks to give the reader a comprehensive understanding of the Iranian leadership's mindset as it has played out and continues to play out on a wide range of issues-how it worked to implement Islamist doctrine into Iran's constitution; how it worked to use the US Iranian hostage crisis as means of unifying domestic opposition behind the theocracy; how it could have ended in two years an Iran-Iraq war that took eight; how it was willing to sacrifice its greatest treasure in an effort to defeat Saddam's army; how it thrives on hypocrisy and its people's willingness to accept it; how it seeks to stamp out the country's true Persian identity; how it utilizes the extra-territoriality mandate of its constitution to justify terrorist attacks anywhere in the world; and, most importantly, what its plans for Iran's future means for America's. It is an outstanding read for anyone trying to understand what makes Iranian leaders like Ali Khamenei and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad tick. The book is peppered with fascinating details and accounts that help simplify the driving motivations behind a complex mindset committed to achieving a goal it so believes it has been ordained to achieve. Armed with such an understanding, the reader cannot help but realize Iran's leadership has set into motion its own Doomsday Clock--one fast approaching midnight!
