U.S. and Iran Face Common Enemies in MidEast Strife, by Thomas Erdbrink

Tehran–“Even as the United States and Iran pursue negotiations on Tehran’s nuclear program, they find themselves on the same side of a range of regional issues surrounding an insurgency raging across the Middle East…

Analysts in  Iran say that Tehran is pursuing a clever strategy, using the United States to undermine its greatest regional rival, Saudi Arabia.”

This is what Hoosang Tale, a nationalist activist and a member of Parliament before the 1979 Islamic Revolution says: “Cooperating skillfully with Russia, Iran has managed to change the game both in Iraq and in Syria.  If we play our cards well, we will end up outsmarting both the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.”
