ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relations between Iran and the U.S. Despite the execution of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and the establishment of a new Iraqi government, violence continues to escalate in Iraq. The U.S. fears that Iran is getting involved in or influencing the fighting in the country where religion and ethnicity are very important. U.S. President George W. Bush says that Iran supplies weapons being made to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq and that it develops nuclear weapons.
