The spiritual leader of Iran Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Saturday that under present conditions, “the US has resorted to various propagandistic ploys to confront the great Iranian nation.”
Khamenei also cautioned the U.S. intention to dishearten people towards the Islamic establishment, undermine religious beliefs, that have been the driving force for the Iranian people. “Enemies are now attempting to divide the system and weaken its popular support, but the Iranian people would not be deceived by their apparently nice words,” said the Leader, according to IRNA.
Khamenei went on to say that Americans know pretty well that if they opt for military intervention, the Iranian nation would give them “such a crushing response that they would regret their deeds.”
"The Americans cannot do as they did in 1953 because the Iranian people are faithful to Islam and the revolution and alert in the face of plots," he said, referring to a CIA-backed coup against Iran's elected prime minister Mohammad Mossadeq to bring the former shah to power. (Albawaba.com)
