I am not at all a fan of Amanpour. She has always failed me in my expectations for many many reasons. However, if there is a "once in a while" good reporting from her it must be this one. The interviewees are very credible for the US public such as Anthony Cordsman who is famous for his "Expert Military Advice" in various shows specially on CNN. In fact, he is probably the most quuoted man in the media in military matters. His views here are surprise to me. I hear from this interview what Not only I have been saying is happening in world stage in regards to Iran but also many others here, we can now here "our common views" on prime time US TV!

Think you know what Iran is up to? You might be surprised. Watch this 25 minute special program with Christiane Amanpour to get the answers:

by David Molko, CNN Senior Producer

What do we really know about the Iranian nuclear threat?  Iran says it wants the right to have its peaceful nuclear program formally recognized.  But from the outside, Iran has long given the impression it has something to hide.  And fear that Iran may soon have the capability to build a nuclear weapon, has spurred talk of a need to take action, even suggestions of a pre-emptive strike against Iran by Israel or the United States.  But is that fear based on fact?

CNN's Christiane Amanpour presents what you need to know about Iran, the threat of war over its nuclear program, and the path forward.  From murky evidence of weapons testing, to the uncertain intentions of its leaders, we find out from those who know the most: the experts.

If Iran decided to produce weapon-grade uranium, how long would it take to make enough for a bomb, and when would the world know?  If Israel were to send fighter jets to bomb the Natanz or Fordo enrichment sites, what damage could they do?  What the experts know and what they donít know, may surprise you.

And what exactly does Iranís Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, mean when he declares the pursuit of nuclear weapons to be a ďgreat sin?Ē  How would Iran respond to an act of aggression by the West?   And is there hope for a diplomatic solution?  One expert explains why no U.S. President has been able to come to terms with the Islamic Republic.  And a long-time adviser to the Supreme Leader reveals Iranís bottom line.

Thanks for posting!
ďI searched for God among the Christians and on the Cross and therein I found Him not. I went into the ancient temples of idolatry; no trace of Him was there. I entered the mountain cave of Hira and then went as far as Qandhar but God I found not. With set purpose I fared to the summit of Mount Caucasus and found there only 'anqa's habitation. Then I directed my search to the Kaaba, the resort of old and young; God was not there even. Turning to philosophy I inquired about him from ibn Sina but found Him not within his range. I fared then to the scene of the Prophet's experience of a great divine manifestation only a "two bow-lengths' distance from him" but God was not there even in that exalted court. Finally, I looked into my own heart and there I saw Him; He was nowhere else.Ē

What is good about it? Why are you getting excited about a person who has not been subjective in the past? This program places the burden of proof on Iran one more time. And that is ridiculous. Proving of intentions is nothing new and is the continuation of baseless claims. Letís assume that even if Iran goes extra mile, do you guys really believe that the Zionist driven policies of Yanks will ever be changed? We have seen what they did when Iran suspended the program. They got more encouraged and demanded more. The fact of matter is that they want total control and submission of the most strategic place on earth. The rest is just the hue and cry serving as tactical way of achieving that.

MP5,

You missed the point! There was no intention to praise Amanpour. The interesting part of the new language of the interviewees which is similar to what believe here at IMF and opposite to the typical US mainstream media.

Further, I am not so sure if you did watch the videos before you jumped into conclusion. The message of the interview was exactly what you mentioned "there will be no change of attitude by the USraelis even if Iran gives in to nuclear demands"- period!

I watched this program on CNN. The report was as factual as a Western reporter can be on Iran. In the end though a Western reporter will always be a Western reporter when it comes to Iran. The only downside was Christian's portrayal of Iran as this aggressor against the US while the US has always chosen a diplomatic route, which I think was laughable. All in all it wasn't a bad report by Western standards.

Catsoo,

You can doubt whatever that you want as it does not change the fact that I watched the clips, and then I made the comment. If I wanted to jump the gun I would be as prolific as some of members here. I just voiced my opinion.

But at least you are agreeing on the point of Iran's successive concessions with no end in sight.

Catsoo ,

The report is different from mainstream media, but that's because they need a policy shift as their previous policies have failed. Having said that, there are still propaganda lines followed in this report by her.
