Reference: Iran's take on America, Bangkok Post, December 6. 2007
The article reflects on various policy errors of the Bush Administration that have disgraced America and lists among other things its misguided war on terror, its failed energy policy, and the deterioration in America's infrastructure and traditional values (Iran's take on America, Bangkok Post, December 6. 2007), but what does any of this have to do with Iran? Is Iran the new bogeyman? Once the USSR was America's bogeyman and when the USSR bit the dust it was Saddam and now that Saddam has also gone to dust I suppose they have homed in on Iran; but why do they need a bogeyman?
