The book opines Khamenei's position as well as the buffoon himself could have done! Kaveh Afrasiabi's book does not come close to the stature of the Mein Kampf but of the author tries harder the second edition may come as a close second.

I have tried to as preliminary to this review read as many of Mr.Afrasiabi 's articles as I could. I wished to understand his background and overall world- view as preliminary to understanding his view on the Iranian nuclear-program.
Unfortunately I discovered inaccuracies in his articles especially in regard to the area which I have a certain knowledge of i.e. Israel. Mr Afrasiabi in one article makes the absurd claim that Israel's aim in responding to the Hizbollah provocations and kidnapping of its soldiers in summer 2006 was taking more and more territory. This is so absurd, so contrary to any idea any politician in Israel even of the extreme right had, that I am convinced that Mr.Afrasiabi is the kind of ideologue whose prejudice destroys the value of any analysis he makes.
I very much side with Mr. Afrasiabi in his view that it would be wise for Iran not to attain nuclear weapons. But I am not sure why exactly he is making this case. It occurs to me that he may be doing so as part of an effort to show the West that Iran has no real intention of having nuclear weapons. That is of course patently false, as the acquistion of nuclear weapons is a major goal of the Ahmadinejad- Khatami regime in Tehran.
Iranian leaders feel surrounded and threatened by nuclear powers, Russia, Pakistan, the United States in Iraq. They believe that nuclear weapons will give them a strategic tool in their struggle with Saudi Arabia for hegemony not only over Gulf Oil, but control over Islam's holy places. They above all believe that nuclear weapons will give them a power and respect throughout the world of a kind they have not had before. It is wise to remember that it is not only the Islamists who felt this way, but that the Shah believed this also.

This book is written by Kaveh L. Afrasiabi, an advisor of past president of Islamic Republic, MULLAH Khatami. It provides interviews with the past key nuclear decision-makers in Islamic Republic, Europe, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).The history of Iran's nuclear program is old and goes back to Pahlavi Dynasty, which could be completed by now. Afrasiabi presents a marketing case for the current so-called Islamic Regime in Iran , drawing on his first-hand knowledge of the system. Thanks.
