Khamenei denounces US leaders “cowboy culture”
Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, denounced what he termed was the "cowboy culture" of United States leaders and their threats against Iran, the official IRNA news agency reported Monday.
"US leaders' spirit of adventure is inspired by their cowboy culture," Khamenei said during talks in Tehran Sunday with Iranian diplomats.
"If the Americans feel that they are confronted with a unified nation, they will hesitate to launch an adventure in Iran", Khamenei said, stressing that "it is necessary to take the US threats seriously. "These threats have existed since the Islamic revolution, and they do not mean that a US attack is certain, but the realization of these threats depends on our behavior", he conveyed.
Washington is trying to "destroy the Iranian regime but it is a very difficult job", he added. (Albawaba.com)
