4.0 out of 5 stars Can we believe what we read in the press and hear from the media?, 1 July 2013

This review is from: A Dangerous Delusion: Why the West Is Wrong About Nuclear Iran (Kindle Single) (Kindle Edition)
Having never been to Iran my knowledge of that country was limited to popular images in the various news media, and these images are seldom positive.
However, like most people I understand that Iran (that was Persia) is an ancient civilization.
In his book, Peter Osborne challenges the truth as presented about Iran and asserts Iran's legal right to develop it's own nuclear industry and to enrich uranium to a non military level. Iran is a signatory to the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and as such, has certain rights.
The book encourages the thought that the world, through a western media propaganda campaign, is being prepared to accept the idea that an invasion of Iran is required. The clear target of all of this is Iranian oil, currently not being sold due to sanctions. These same sanctions are hurting millions of ordinary Iranians who are being denied food and in many cases, medical supplies.
The reader cannot help but become angry at the hypocrisy of a power that, whilst undermining Iran also maintains a prison where prisoners are held without trial or even without being charged.
