Revealing Apprehensions of Instability in a Region Already Out of Control

Reader comment on item: Predicting the Biden Administration in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: Destabilization of Advances Made by Previous Administrations are Revealing

Javad Zarif, a person in the international spotlight for both interacting with the current American 46th Administrative Chief Executive's office in cajoling a return to the questionable 2015 nuclear accord and now possibly being considered for a greater leadership role in the Iranian Islamic Regime's efforts to increase their hegemony in the Middle East, apparently revealed some insight as to why, if not how, their actions may lend more credence to this observer's expectations of further destabilization of the status quo in the region.
