Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Since the early 1980s, Iran has posed a daunting and much-publicized threat to the well-being of the United States; its government's motto is "Death to America" and the nation has openly squelched U.S. access to valuable natural resources in the Middle East. The question of exactly how dangerous the country is for America, however, is a slightly more vague and difficult question. The History Channel documentary Iran: The Next Iraq investigates this matter thoroughly, via a lengthy exploration of Iran's military background, its dramatic decline in power during the early 21st century, and the widespread rumor that the country may be developing nuclear weapons.
