Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Corsi came into prominence as the coauthor (with John O'Neill) of Unfit for Command (2004), a best-selling criticism of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Now Corsi launches a salvo at the nuclear-energy program of Iran, sniping for good measure at American Democratic politicians and European diplomats who advocate negotiations. To Corsi, negotiations are Iran's bad-faith distraction from its determination to manufacture an atomic bomb. Indeed, this diplomatic crisis frequently intensifies with forthright declarations by Iranian officials of their right to enrich uranium. Therefore, the geopolitical restraint one believes a nuclear-armed theocracy will exercise influences one's posture toward it, and Corsi accords no moderation to the clerics of the Islamic Republic, quoting their blood-curdling threats against Israel and the U.S. For apocalyptic attention, he devises atomic-attack scenarios on Manhattan and Tel Aviv, speculating further about preemptive attacks on Iran (though Corsi does not outright propose preemption). As is customary with partisan political books, Corsi's discursive pastiche of fact, imagination, and polemics will experience sharp but ephemeral popularity. Gilbert Taylor

You may disagree with the politics - that is fair. However, when you read reviews that are based on the "person," only, rather then the content of the book- that is, in one word, sophomoric. For example, one reviewer stated: "More lies and distorions from the scum behind the Swift Boat liars. Don't waste your money." This offers what to any serious discussion. Further, I would garner a bet that the person has not read the book. Mr. Corsi posits some very serious theories, that if have an iota of truth, we should consider. If one person does not consider Iran to be an imminent threat to our society and way of life, that person lives in a land that contains the likes of the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. This is a new world; what transpired on 9/11/01 change the world forever. Evaluate the content of the book; look for discrepancies or something to challenge his conclusions. Leave the personal attacks out. It accomplishes little.

Anyone reading this who reasonably pays attention to daily world events should be able to see for themselves how close we are coming to an outright nuclear exchange. The section that describes in chilling detail what to expect if a moderate sized nuclear bomb detonates in New York is chilling to say the least!!

I know its ridiculous, but every member of congress and each of the nightly news anchors, should be forced to read this chapter. There is a very real danger here that dosen't seem to receive the attention it deserves, and our families and children will likely pay the price if something dosen't change. Maybe then we could get this nation to FOCUS on the catastrophic danger that faces the world provided madmen like these get a nuclear weapon. No one should expect Israel to stand idly by and let itself be obliterated, they will defend themselves and bring the United States along with them.

But rather than devote major attention to the very real threat percolating in Iran, the major media is more worried about why it took 24 hrs to inform them about the Vice President's hunting mishap, or the latest celebrity breakup in Hollywood!!

As a career Naval submarine officer, I worked up close and personal with nuclear missiles of several types. The idea of madmen like the president of Iran being willing to unleash that type of weapon against any country is bone chilling and breathtaking. This book will grab you by the lapel's and force you to consider the implications worldwide if an "Atomic Iran" comes to be.

[I am a retired Army Intelligence Officer - working now as a contractor for the Army as a computer combat simulations and modeling manager.]

I'll try my best to be objective - but, you know it's hard not to show your political stripes when reviewing this book. But why shoot us messengers? The fact that Dr. Corsi wrote a previous book that spiked John Kerry's Presidential bid - in no way nullifies the fact that Iran has - today - 3 to 5 nukes - and only hasn't used them because of the difficulty of mating them to their internally produced IRBMs.

Name callers - finger pointers - discussion groups - can wail all day long - (conspiracy freaks even longer) - but IRAN HAS THE BOMB!!! "Atomic Iran" gives a shorthand version of how their nuclear program successfully progressed - who remains complicit in it's development (Putin & Co, the Russians and an unsavory cast of Europeans, American businessmen and bureaucrats) and speculates on who are Iran's intended targets (easy speculation). The book may very well indeed foster sympathy to Israel, go soft on big oil and the Bush family - but this is trivial because we are still faced with people who intend to murder us all because we do not submit to Allah as interpreted by the Iranian mullahs!

Dr. Corsi plows through a religious, political, economic and emotional minefield - deliberately failing to avoid any of the mines. Apparently we either like explosions - or hate those who do. Graphic detail of hypothetical nuclear detonation incidents in Tel Aviv and NYC - might - just might - get some of us out from our TV sets and recreational diversions to reality.

In 1981, Israeli Air Force (IAF) F-16's dropped 24 bombs on the nuclear reactor containment structure at Osirak, Iraq.

I have told everyone I know to read this absolutely chilling but oh-so-important book and given copies to many friends. It carefully covers the history of Iran's program to arm itself with nuclear weapons and reports on assistance to Iran from Russia, North Korea, China, India, France, and others. Much much context on the West's response to Iran is covered here, showing consistent failure to engage Iran's leaders by pursuing the naive negotiating strategies promoted by candidate Kerry and other appeasement-minded American and European diplomats and politicians. Depressing though this account is, Dr. Corsi offers some small hope for potential regime change from within, and submits several good ideas for supporting the Mullahs' opponents. Readers should consult the following web sites for much-needed news on the pro-democracy anti-regime activists -- the only hope of the civilized world for avoiding global blackmail by the suicide-favoring leaders who now control the Iranian nuclear trigger: [...] and [...]
