Despite the latest positive report of the IAEA on Iran' nuclear programme , efforts to launch a war against Iran are gathering pace . Given the unpopularity of such a war, the big powers are keeping very quiet about it whilst using highly sophisticated methods to psychologically prepare their citizens.

What pressure are the leading NATO countries putting on the Turkish Government? How is the extra-parliamentary opposition reacting to the prospective next stage of the 'Global War on Terror'?
