Iran's president led a raucous anti-American rally in this tightly controlled US ally in the Persian Gulf, a day after a low-key visit by US Vice President Dick Cheney aimed at countering Tehran's influence in the region. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a cheering crowd Sunday that America was to blame for creating instability and robbing the region of its wealth. "We are telling you to leave the region. This is for your benefit and the benefit of your nation," Ahmadinejad shouted to the crowd of thousands at a soccer stadium. "The nations of the region can no longer take you forcing yourself on them. The nations of the region know better how to create peace and security." Ahmadinejad's visit was the first by an Iranian head of state to this Sunni-led Arab country since its independence in 1971 and his rally was remarkable in a country where political parties are banned and power is held solely by tribal families.
