The article focuses on the opinions and actions of U.S. President George W. Bush regarding the actions of Iran. Bush put Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on the terrorism list. On August 28, 2007, at the American Legion convention, he called Iran the worlds leading state sponsor of terrorism. He said Iran's active pursuit of technology that could lead to nuclear weapons threatens to put a region already known for instability and violence under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust. He also denounced Iranian meddling in Iraq.
