The US is attempting to use ISIS to destroy each government in the region including Syria and Iraq, and is trying to drag Iran into this, Soraya Sepaphour-Ulrich, a researcher and expert on Iran, told RT.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has called on the country’s clerics to be more tolerant of the Internet and new technologies. The hard-liners in the Persian country harshly oppose 3G, Facebook, and YouTube.
Iran’s president has condemned as an “invasion” new sanctions on around 30 firms, banks and individuals, imposed by the US amid stalled talks on Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran believes Washington’s move contradicts earlier agreements.

New generation short-range anti-ship missiles and UAVs have been unveiled in Iran. Tehran’s revamped military doctrine is based on “deterrence and effective defense,” President Hassan Rouhani said at the presentation.
