hegemony and the end of Western oppression, his defiance to negotiate a nuclear resolution can be likened to the battle against nuclear apartheid or perhaps the fear of losing its sovereignty by means of Western invasion. One begins to sense that the historical dialogue between Iran and the United States has morphed itself into a struggle for power and recognition; and arguably the Iran nuclear ambition acts a tool for recognition through defiance. Through Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morality, we know that the interpretation and imposed values on the world is not void of history; and their origins are often brutal and far removed from the values which they produce. For example, the value of good is measured on that which the powerful nobles applied to himself in contrast to the common man. In other words, the value of the master depended on that which is perceived to be ‘good’, as opposed to the slave which connotes that which is ‘bad’ and it is the tragedy of distance, between the high-born versus the low-born that creates a sense of superiority over inferiority; thus leading to the ressentiment of the superior (Pearson & Diethe, 2006). Scheler (1972 p45-46).) defines ressentiment “as a self-poisoning of the mind which has definite causes and consequences. The feeling of ressentiment manifests itself in the form of systematic repression of certain emotions and affect, which when projected lead to conflict in the quest for revenge”. On this basis, it could be argued that an aggressive Iranian foreign policy towards the United States is born out of the feeling of ressentiment towards the value the United States has placed on itself as good and towards the value Iran perceives the United States has placed it as evil. Post-structuralism draws our attention to the power of language meta-narrative and seeks us to deconstruct what we know about “truth” in political discourses in international relations. Through the processing of otherisation, states act differently towards what they perceive as enemies or allies; because enemies are threatening and friends are not. The international system poses complexities; and it is only through knowledge or perception of the “other” in the international system that states are able to shape foreign policies which leans either towards cooperative or uncooperative measures (Campbell 1998). Quintessentially fear plays a part in guiding Iran’s foreign policy towards America because it deems the United States and its allies as threatening to its sovereignty. Relations between Iran and the United States epitomises Wendt’s assertion which argues that anarchy is what states make of it; sociological interaction, identity formation and construction are key components of state relations. The foreign policy of Iran is constructed by following a discourse which articulates around the nodal point of anti-Western revolutionary identity. State behaviours are constructed and re-constructed to a great deal by the dominating norms and dynamics within the international system; thus international norms define the goals and purpose of states (Wendt 1992, 1993). For example, within the international system, a state’s accessibility to or level of nuclear technology attracts a label of either a weak state or a strong state. Therefore, for Iran to create a self-identity relevant to that>GET ANSWER
