the oxide iron is a very strongly basic anion due to its very small size and high charge.

First of all we have to look into the nature of the element whose oxide it is. If the element is non-metal, then oxide will be usually acidic and if the element is metal, then oxide will be basic. Among metal oxide (especially d and f block),some oxides may be amphoteric or acidic also. The oxides with maximum number of oxygen will be usually acidic and that with moderate number of oxygen will be amphoteric.
