It's beyond belief. I presume there has been no creative editing in producing this concoction of psychotic paranoia?Mike Berger
Iran is a copy-cat continuation of European revolutionary ideology. When they studied in the despised West they actually bought into the Western ideologies as relevant to their struggle - hence the "Revolutionary Guard" is still at the heart of the Islamic Republic, and the threat they must be fighting has to be defined by the media of that Islamic Republic. And it thus comes out in terms not dissimilar to Soviet and Nazi propaganda. The real problem in dealing with IRan is that for the West this kind of "documentary" is held to be too absurd to be taken seriously. Hence the threat that the imperialistic and revolutionary Islamic regime comprises is completely underestimated. Its not that Iran is necessarily going to use WMD's but this regime will continue to pursue revolutionary and imperialistic policies for the forseeable future. There is only a slight chance that the Obama thaw will bear any fruit, and that would only be influencing the regime to moderate in the interest of its citizenry. It wouldn't change its imperialist and revolutionary essence but subdue it for a while for internal economic development.
