United States vs. Iran
Since the first decade of the 21st Century, specifically after 9/11, there have been serious
allegations stemming from the U.S. towards the Middle East. Many Americans think that Iraq was and still is the greatest threat to Americans. However, the Secretary of State Rice made a statement that Iran is the, “central banker of terrorism.” Not only has Rice
said this, but other high ranking government officials as well. So, how do the U.S. government and the Islamic Republic respond to each other during these times of trials and tribulations? Here are some questions that need to be answered before responding:
How did Iran respond to the U.S. after 9/11? What are the behaviors and policies of the U.S. government? And lastly, does Iran want to diminish contact with the U.S.?
First, when 9/11 occurred the United States went into a state of defense. President Bush declared War on Terror and went after Al-Qaeda and Iraq. Not only did
the U.S. want those two forces stopped, but Iran did as well. Iran asked Afghan to cooperate with the U.S. and now they are telling that to Iraq. Both of these countries, Iraq and Afghan were all harboring Al-Qaeda members. Iran also helped in setting up a new Afghan government. However, Iran and the United States continued to have diplomatic differences regarding the Israel and Palestine conflict. The conflict includes
Israel intercepting a ship carrying Iranian weapons to Palestinians fighting the Israelites in the Gaza Strip. President Bush singled out Iran and stated they were part of an, “axis of evil.” In addition, the Atomic Energy Agency noted, “with gravest concern” that Iran enriched uranium and separated plutonium, both used to make nuclear weapons. The United States is not only disturbed by Iran’s attitude concerning loyalty but as well as future retaliation to the opposing view point of the U.S. government.
The U.S. also has problems regarding Iran’s misleading information...
