Topic: List of current Iranian ambassadors


  
 Al-Ahram Weekly | Region | Converging interests
Following the Iranian Revolution, relations between Tehran and Washington were turned on their head, and the previous cordiality was replaced by an antagonistic bond of a kind rarely seen in modern international relations.
From the revolution until the emergence of Iranian President Mohamed Khatami and his reformist movement, Iran was at the forefront of the radical trend in the region.

 Al-Ahram Weekly | A conditional rapport   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Iranian officials are fond of publicly saying, as did Kharazi this week, that the further Egypt distances itself from Israel, the closer it will find itself to Iran.
Iranian officials say that they hope to see Egypt take a firm and unswerving line on the issue of Israel, whom Tehran views as an irrevocable enemy of the Muslim world.
Iranian officials also speak of an alleged split among Egyptian policy-makers, with some advocating normalisation with Israel and expressing apprehensions about a rapprochement with Iran, and others pushing for closer relations with Tehran.

 Chapter 13: The Carter Years
The frankness of former ambassadors on the United States' role in the terror was further tempered by the record of their own past statements in defense of El Salvador's human rights record and U. policy.
In the event, the U.S. ambassadors to Guatemala and El Salvador during the worst years of state terror have never publicly acknowledged that provision for counterterror terrorism had formed a part of the doctrine that had been exported to these allies.
Ambassador Stewart might have been authentically appalled had he reamed the full extent of the Guatemalan counterterror—or of the U.S. military and CIA involvement in organizing and launching counterterror in Guatemala—but he clearly agreed with the Guatemalans' immediate objective (eradication of the subversives) and was not overly fastidious about their ethics.

So to assume that an Iranian bomb is "obviously" 10 years away or "probably" a few months away based on what any of these people say is, empirically, about as reliable as a random guess.
Ahmadinejad's remarks (and I imagine that many non-Jewish Iranians feel the same way); but it is one thing to have fears for the future and another to claim the existence of a policy for which there is as yet no evidence.
