The Iran Threat: President Ahmadinejad and the Coming Nuclear Crisis by Alireza Jafarzadeh

From the controversial expert who brought Iran's nuclear program to the attention of the world in 2002 comes a searing exposé of the inner workings and plans of Iran's mullahs. With access to dissident groups inside Iran, Alireza Jafarzadeh traces President Ahmadinejad's radical roots and involvement in terror attacks to his impact on Iran's weapons program. He reveals new details on Iran's meddling in Iraq and its broader goals for the future of the Middle East. This is the most authoritative account to date of the looming threat Iran poses to the United States and the Gulf region.

Readers will learn for the first time:
*President Ahmadinejad's radical past as a feared torturer of political prisoners and his zealous mission to deliver the regime its first nuclear bomb
*The chilling trend of the military's increasing control of the nuclear program
*How Ahmadinejad was handpicked by Iran's mullahs to help create an Islamic Republic in Iraq
*The latest covert actions to bury nuclear facilities in tunnels
*The story of the front companies Iran used to buy its nuclear technology undetected
*The author's original and insightful policy options to end the Iranian threat

The problem of iran and nuclear weapons is an elephant in the room. As a professor of engineering 40 years ago I met two Iranians who had the following characteristics: o made false statements without regard to the outcome; o argued at length over a detail, - - and again made false statements; o plagiarized another faculty member's work, laughing at him; o embezzled money from grants and tried to pin it on others; and o displayed utter contempt for anyone and everyone. If Iran gets nuclear weapons, you can expect them to be used against any country in the world, - - in a very imaginative way. There is no sense in negotiations; the Iranians will simply sign an agreement and violate it the next day. The problem is bomb DELIVERY.

just finished reading alireza jafarzadehs new best seller 'the Iran threat' and was really fasinated at the amount of documentation and research in this publication showing how iran has for many years attempted to coverup its work with and export of nuclear programs. this book even documents the dummy corporations that the iranian dictatator has used so no one will know there true aims.the arthur is one of the key people who first alerted the west about irans nuclear ambitions. after reading this book I feel I have a better understanding of middle eastern politics cause iran is the silent partners of some of our enemys.
