Frontline's "Showdown With Iran"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Bush's latest version of "Hitler"
Frontline's program broadcast on 10/23/07, Showdown With Iran, is available to view at their Web site. There is quite a bit of supplementary material available there, as well.
Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, who served during the first Cheney-Bush term, says in his interview whose text is on the Web site:
Having served in Iran, I am fearful of their hegemonistic appetite. Even during the time of the shah, I find that I've never seen a more ethnocentric country in my life. I have never seen a country for whom the days of Persepolis was, unlike for you and I, 2,500 years ago; they see it as yesterday. So this leads me to some fear about their view of themselves on the world stage.Tags: iran war, richard armitage
