If you are interested to know the background as to why Iran and the USA are so opposed to each other at the moment (nuclear standoff, Axis of Evil, etc.) then this article is very interesting reading.
Many of the readers’ comments are also interesting. One person asks "Why didn't I learn this in US history class?"
I wonder why...!!!
Hope you find it insightful if you are interested in the subject.
