Since the publication of this book, events have moved very fast in the direction that Corsi predicted, confirming the warning expressed in Atomic Iran. The Iranian regime has openly defied the IAEA and is proceeding with its nuclear programme. In this it is assisted by Russia that supplies the materials and the expertise, and by China, which will veto any form of meaningful action to stop the process. The European multilateral approach has proved to be a monumental failure. One cannot negotiate with irrational fanatics led by a lunatic with messianic delusions. Appeasement has failed. There is no alternative now to the doctrine of pre-emption.
As the author points out in this essential work, not only Israel and the USA are in danger. All of Western civilization is in the sight of the maniacs ruling Iran. Already Ahmadinejad had shown his contempt for the EU. And indeed, Europe is particularly vulnerable as all its capital cities are within reach of the Shahab-5 missile. The next one, Shahab-6 that is currently being developed, is a true IBM with a range of possibly 6000 kilometres. Besides the direct threat, Iran will surely also make use of its proxy terrorists like Hamas and Hezbollah to attack Israel, the US and Europe.
There is also a fifth column in the West and in America. The mullahs have been quite lavish in throwing money around to useful idiots and fellow travelers in the USA and elsewhere. There are plenty of corrupt people and institutions in the USA who have been bribed by a network of pro-Iranian financiers. Certain politicians have openly called for normalizing diplomatic relations and the legitimization of the regime. It is definitely time to expose and hold these lobbyists and interest groups accountable for their involvements with the mullahs.
Corsi investigates the ayatollocracy by discussing their real ambitions, their support of various terrorist groups and their ultimate aims. The regime oppresses its own people and has only contempt for the concept of human rights. The author provides ample evidence of the cruelty and brutality rampant in Iran. This is what they have in store for the rest of the world, in case the feminists and other leftists haven't noticed. In addition, the regime manipulates the oil price, using the income to fund terrorism and pursue its nuclear ambitions. This price manipulation restricts growth, especially in emerging economies of the third world. Once it is nuclear, Iran will most definitely use the fact to more forcefully hold the world to ransom. An oil price of more than $100 per barrel is mentioned.
Finally, the author examines the most likely scenarios and possible solutions to the looming threat. Conventional war is out of the question. The best way to proceed would be to encourage and support the Iranian people to get red of their evil regime. In addition, Israel and/or the US will have to surgically strike sites like Arak (heavy water facility), Bushehr (Russian-built reactor) and Natanz (uranium enrichment facility). The MOAB will be indispensable in this campaign.
As the author makes clear in the sections Why & How Israel Strikes First, Israel simply cannot allow a nuclear Iran. Since Corsi wrote this, Ahmadinejad has stated that he intends to "wipe Israel off the map" and in December 2005 he denied the holocaust on TV. In January 2006 Ali Larijani, secretary of the Iranian national security council, threatened Europe with the words " ... they will have to prepare themselves to live in a hell." More likely has hell found a host in his apocalyptic death cult.
How much clearer can one get? One thing is certain, Israel will prevail. One can only hope that the Iranian people do not suffer too much in the approaching clash and that the world economy is not damaged too severely or for too long. As for the West, European and American Leftists in particular, it is time to wake up to the realities of the 21st century.
