tends to escalate.

December 1, 2002; Despite years of strained relations, there has been increasing unofficial military and diplomatic cooperation between Iran and the US. This extends to American planning for an invasion of Iraq. Saddam Hussein is widely hated in Iran for the 1980 Iraq invasion of Iran (and subsequent death of half a million Iranians).
