U.S and Iran need each other, to hell with the people
I found an interesting opinion on how the Arab and Muslim people are caught between a rock and a hard place. Foreign policy of nations antagonistic to each other goes on without consideration of the affected people. The author of "Green and Jasmine bleeding together", Hamid Dabashi, makes the point that Islamic Republic of Iran needs to demonize the U. S. to hold its power and that the U. S. needs the threat of Islamic terrorism to support autocratic "allies". Both sides could care less about the people in the affected nations.
