Iran

Iran: divided over its future - Iran, both one of the most culturally richest nations in the Middle East and at the same time a religious theocracy, faces the challenge of recovering from a 20th-century history of elections, foreign coups, revolution and intrigue. Expected to be perhaps the next country to possess nuclear arms, a new chapter will soon be written of the relationship between Iran and the United States.

Currently this conflict has taken the path of increasingly hostile rhetoric between the two countries and between Iran's leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and Israel. In a public statement last October, Ahmadinejad called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."
