How this crisis came to be, and the story of the individuals and organizations involved, is a tale full of hubris, pathos, integrity and deception in the end, human foibles might succeed in pushing the world collectively over its edge.' In the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, Scott Ritter was one of the few public figures courageous enough to challenge the lies spread by the Bush administration and the mainstream media concerning Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. In the wake of the debacle in Iraq, Ritter has been vindicated. Now the US and its neoconservative allies are raising the alarm about Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program and firebrand president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Again, Ritter sets the record straight. Ritter uncovers the patterns of influence in international security networks to provide a cool-headed analysis of Iran's nuclear program and US policy in the Middle East. He reveals the motivation behind the Bush administration's attempts to cultivate popular democracy and regime change in Iran. He explains why the US persists in pursuing high risk foreign policy in the Middle East, Israel's involvement, and how this time it could actually lead to nuclear conflict.
