Nonfiction Audio Programs-Over the past 30 years, while the United States has turned either a blind or dismissive eye, Iran has emerged as a nation every bit as capable of altering Americas destiny as traditional superpowers Russia and China. Indeed, one of this books central arguments is that, in some ways, Irans grip on Americas future is even tighter.pAs ex-CIA operative Robert Baer masterfully shows, Iran has maneuvered itself into the elite superpower ranks by exploiting Americas false perceptions of what Iran is by letting us believe it is a country run by scowling religious fanatics, too preoccupied with theocratic jostling and terrorist agendas to strengthen its political and economic foundations.pThe reality is much more frightening, and yet contained in the potential catastrophe is an implicit political response that, if were bold enough to adopt it, could avert disaster.p Baers on-the-ground sleuthing and interviews with key Middle East players, everyone from an Iranian ayatollah to the king of Bahrain to the head of Israels internal security, paint a picture of the centuries-old Shia nation that is starkly the opposite of the one normally drawn. For example, Irans hate-spouting President Ahmadinejad is by no means the true spokesman for Iranian foreign policy, nor is Iran making it the highest priority to become a nuclear player. pEven so, Baer has discovered that Iran is currently engaged in a soft takeover of the Middle East, that the proxy method of war-making and co-option it perfected with Hezbollah in Lebanon is being exported throughout the region, that Iran now controls a significant portion of Iraq, that it is extending its influence over Jordan and Egypt, that the Arab Emirates and other Gulf States are being pulled into its sphere, and that it will shortly have a firm hold on the worlds oil spigot.
