Iran Poses No Threat? Guess Again

Better yet, Think!

I was going to write about: Iran; nuclear weapons; the Ayatollah's foreign policy; perceptions and reality.

Someone beat me to it: "Nuclear Iran: Reality Check (ii)" "American Interests.blog" (February 6, 2008)

The "American Interests" post includes
  • Five reasons why a nuclear Iran may not be acceptable for the most of the world
  • Statements by
    • Foreign leaders and diplomats
    • Non-proliferation experts
    • Newspaper editorials

My attention's been drawn to another post on this topic: "Australia Against Fundamentalist Islam" - "Iran's Nuclear Lunge For Power." There's an interesting historical parallel there, involving 3rd-century Rome.

Blogroll

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
