Beschreibung:

The first question answered by this book is why and how Iran, for almost two decades, managed to escape the attention of the West in its bid to acquire the equipment, skills and expertise needed to manufacture the atom bomb? As one observer noted: 'she's not quite there yet, but following some pretty intrusive detective work by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) late 2003 and early 2004, everything points to Iran acquiring nuclear weapons parity within the next few years.' The consensus within the nuclear club is that that target is likely to be reached sooner rather than later. What worries the Americans the most is that the nuclear Iranian program was not exposed as a consequence of efforts by the CIA, but rather as a consequence of a dissident Iranian group having blown the whistle on two nuclear enrichment programs. For their part, the Israelis were equally distressed. Jerusalem has already hinted that if the West allows a similar situation to develop in Iran as the international community faced in Iraq prior to 'Operation Iraqi Freedom', it might be forced to act unilaterally. Al Venter, the author of "The Iraqi War Debrief: Why Saddam Hussein Was Toppled covers all this and more in this new book.
