Good footage but fraught with misinformation
13 February 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary which covers some historical background on the root of the Islamic Republic in Iran and continues to the present time and the hotly debated issue of acquisition of nuclear technology by Iran. While the historical background and the footage seemed sound and objective in the first few minutes, the bias toward absolute demonetization of Iran is apparent through the misinformation, hyperbolic hypotheticals , outdated examples and extreme exaggeration of it's influence in other regions beyond the middle east by the interviewed experts which uniformly state the same thing over and over (it also includes John Bolton, to no surprise after you realize what message the film wants to convey). Most of them talk about the imminent danger, failing to take in account the huge differences in the supposed and the actual and realistic potential of Iran's very limited logistics, financial and technological abilities. As an example for some of the misinformation that can be easily fact checked; it is claimed that there is a clear and proved collaboration between Iran and Al-Qaida, which although probable, there exists not even indirect evidence. Or the claims about ongoing (present tense is used) "rape of virgins to prevent them from going to heaven", which this has been the case in the very early stages of post-revolution crackdown on opposition forces, there has been no case reported in the past 15 years or so in my knowledge. Or, the Fox-news style non-sense about Hezbollah working with Mexican gangs... again ignoring that Hezbollah has never operated outside of Lebanon because they would like to be viewed as a national resistance force. again not surprisingly, almost all TV snippets are directly from Fox news and contain the same usual fals claims and exaggeration (e.g. the effect of an EMP weapon). It's maybe necessary to explain that I am in no way a fan of the lunatic regime, nor do I deny in anyway the widespread and systematic violation of human rights in Iran, but this documentary reminds me too closely of the misinformation spread by the Bush government in the propaganda in the run up to the invasion of Iraq. In the last sequences of the film, its stated over and over again that US the and free western world in general has to do "anything in their power" to help the people to dispose of the regime. As an Iranian in exile who would like it very much to see the regime disposed, i think this is very wrong, there can basically be no good coming from outside forces in a popular uprising, it should be handled by the people of the country, like what we just witnessed in Tunisia and Egypt. In conclusion, watch the film if you are interested in the issues, but take the information with a grain of salt as the material does not appear to be objectively presented or properly fact-checked as one expects from a proper documentary.
