he will convey it to the German delegation when it meets
April 15 in advance of the IEM. He noted that Germany,
France, and the United Kingdom are preparing a joint
presentation concerning Iran, but, since a different German

Campbell On: the US demonising of Iran

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike. Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures. More
