[A] manifestation of disregard for the alliance.
As much as it may be a bold and praiseworthy idea on the surface ... the idea of a MESA military alliance against Iran, with the participation of the U.S., is as practical as teaching eggs to fly. The idea is also bold, potentially useful, but at the same time impractically idiotic.
If there is a region in the world where tensions could lead to conflicts with terrible consequences, it is the Middle East. Washington, the principal ally of Saudi Arabia and Israel, and Moscow, ally of Iran and Syria, should act soon to lessen the tension.
The evidence of a competition between sovereign states absolutely does not signify that the alliance between the two states is collapsing, nor does it reveal hostile intentions.
