Beskrivning

In 2002, George W. Bush famously referred to Iran as a member of the »axis of evil.»

The fierce rhetoric highlights the persistent antagonism between the two nations.

The standoff has taken on renewed urgency with election of hard-line conservative Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iran's new president and his bold resumption of the country's nuclear program.
