Berman lied claiming Iran's nuclear program and terrorism promote launching attacks against Israeli and US interests globally. He also authored the book titled, "Tehran's Rising Challenge to the United States." 

His latest 2009 work is called "Winning the Long War: Retaking the Offensive Against Radical Islam." His comments and writing leave no doubt where he stands. They also reveal his immorality and support for lawless aggression.

Published in The Hindu on March 14, Writer Vladimir Radyuhin headlined, "Iran strike imminent: Russian diplomat," saying:

Russia's Kommersant daily said Moscow UN diplomats believe war on Iran is "a matter of when, not if. The attack will be mounted before the end of this year. Israel is blackmailing Obama by confronting him with a dilemma: either he supports the war option or will lose the support" of American Jews.

Turkey will host so-called April scheduled Tehran 5 + 1 talks in Istanbul. Attending with be America, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany. Hillary Clinton told Russian Foreign Secretary Sergei Lavrov to warn Iran about a "last chance" to avoid attack. 

Russian diplomats expect it after talks designed to fail. They also think launching it will stop military invention against Syria, at least for now. Pursuing two major regional wars simultaneously is more than even America can bare with others in Afghanistan and Iraq ongoing, as well as out-of-control violence raging in Libya.

Interviewed on CNN, top advisor to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Mohammad Javad Larijani suggested Iran's response to an Israeli or US attack, saying:

"Every possibility is on the table," including blocking the Strait of Hormuz and counterattacking. He also called sanctions unfair, stressed Tehran's peaceful nuclear program, and said if Western nations want "more transparency, then we should expect more cooperation."

The "equation is simple." Both sides must deal fairly with the other to resolve disputes equitably. Iran offers "full transparency (with) permanent human monitoring" in return for Western nations affording it all rights under Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty provisions.
