Ted Halsteadabout this book: Iran has long wanted to overthrow the Saudi monarchy, so it can control Mecca and Medina. Will three nuclear weapons and an armored invasion let them succeed?
The two Russian agents introduced in The Second Korean War have orders to stop Iran's plans, but to even partly succeed they'll have to get the help of the General in charge of Russian forces in Syria. Convincing the General will require a persuasive, in person account by someone with direct knowledge of Iran's nuclear program. Getting her out of Iran...won't be easy.
Qatar responded to the Saudi-led blockade of its country by introducing a draft and buying hundreds of fighter jets and the latest model Leopard tanks. Can Iran persuade Qatar to join it in attacking the Saudis?
The Saudis naturally ask the US for help. But with all US military bases near Saudi Arabia recently closed, only a risky experimental program is available. Will it work in time?
Whether the attacks succeed or fail, the Middle East won't look the same afterwards. Will it be a safer region, or even more unstable than it was before?
The author draws on two tours at the US Embassy in Saudi Arabia, spaced twenty years apart, to help imagine how a war with Iran might happen- and how it might end.
