In his address on Wednesday, Rouhani blamed the United States and its allies for causing "insecurity" across the Middle East.

I agree, but he also needs to include himself and his nation, the other-side-of-the-Gulf theocracies like Saudi Arabia and the UAE, his partner-nation Russia, European states including the UK, France, and Italy, China and all other states involved in ME oil and gas trade.

The blame lies with the fossils that have run the global fossil economy for the last century plus. As long as the globe remains dependent on burning so much oil and gas, expect there to be 'insecurities' where huge amounts of oil and gas are found.

Rouhani blamed the United States and its allies for causing "insecurity" across the Middle East.

Their "mistakes", he said, included the Soleimani killing, interventions in Iraq, Yemen and Libya, as well as the U.S. decision to pull out of the nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Iranian oil.

"Security in this sensitive and important region will come at the expense of the entire world," said Rouhani.

Rouhani is considered to be a moderate and pragmatic politician...

Rouhani & FM Javad Zarif will be overthrow by hardliners!  Their approach to US under Donald Trump were depised and they put their nation in a very great risk for signing the 2015 nuclear deal with Obama!

Oh really. And the ideology that came with the Iranian revolution and that drives the Iran-Arab and Iran-Israel conflict has nothing to do with all this, does it now.

Sorry. But Unity will come when State & Religion part their ways... you'd have thought that Arabic Nations would have learnt that by now... but I guess, Democracy is new to them.

If they hadn't lied to their people in the first place

If they didn't outright dismiss the possibility of missiles but kept an open mind
