I had the opportunity to view a screening of Iranium today at CPAC. Iranium is a well-crafted movie that presents a chilling perspective on the challenges presented by the apocalyptic extremists who run Iran. The film can be viewed online for free for a limited time:
View the trailer here.
The film's director, Alex Traiman, led a question and answer session after the screening.
Take home points:
1. Failure to address the threat posed by a nuclear Iran is not an option.
2. Containment is not a viable strategy.
This is a movie that deserves to go viral. You can by a DVD copy here.

Yet successive American administrations-Republican and Democratic alike-have misread the intentions and actions of the Iranian regime.How dangerous is a nuclear Iran, even if it never detonates a weapon? What are the guiding principles of the Iranian leadership? To what lengths would the regime go to carry out its agenda? How far have Iran's leaders already gone to fund the world's most powerful terrorist organizations? And why have American leaders failed to gain the upper hand in relations with Iran during the past 30 years?In approximately 60 minutes, Iranium powerfully reports on the many aspects of the threat America and the world now faces using rarely-before seen footage of Iranian leaders, and interviews with 25 leading politicians, Iranian dissidents, and experts on: Middle East policy, terrorism, and nuclear proliferation.Iranium documents the development of Iran's nuclear threat, beginning with the Islamic Revolution of 1979 and the ideology installed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini.Iranium tracks Iran's use of terror as a tool of policy, beginning with the 444 day seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, through Iran's insurgent actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.Iranium details the brutal nature of the Iranian regime to its own citizens, and the Iranian people's desire to rejoin the international community.Iranium outlines the various scenarios the greater Middle East and the Western world may face should Iran cross the nuclear threshold.
