When did the US start having problems with Iran?

The United States attributes the worsening of relations to the 1979–81 Iran hostage crisis, Iran's repeated human rights abuses since the Islamic Revolution, its anti-Western ideology and its nuclear program. Since 1995, the United States has had an embargo on trade with Iran.
