In a prudent move that should speak volumes of Islamic diplomacy the Leader of the Islamic Revolution deftly defanged Donald the Dotard, giving the ignorantly arrogant US president a sampling of the decisive defeat that awaits him if he does not desist from his quixotic approach towards Iran.
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, in his after-Iftar speech on Tuesday to a large gathering of civilian and military officials, coolly and rationally analyzed the current situation, and brushing aside Washington’s tantrums, theatrics, threats, and terroristic tweets of military build-up to try to trap Iran in renegotiating the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) from which the US unilaterally and illegally withdrew, not only ruled out the prospect of any war but termed talks with the American regime as "highly poisonous”.
Now, it is useless for rogues like Mike Pompeo and John Bolton to rave and rant against Iran, since it is out of question for the Islamic Republic to discuss anything about its inalienable right to further develop missile defence technology and step up cooperation with the regional governments and popular movements, while any attempt to ignite flames of even a limited armed confrontation means definite destruction for the Americans and their comrades-in-crimes.
As pointed out by the Leader, animosity towards Iran is deeply rooted in the US administration ever since the Iranian people overthrew the American-backed Pahlavi potentate to establish the system of popular religious rule, therefore it is unwise to think that any good will result from talks with Washington, and "Of course no one among our officials seeks to negotiate. Obviously no dignified and wise Iranian would negotiate national strengths.”
Noting the highly flawed estimations and perceptions of Trump and his team, he said: "Their president claims there is a protest against the government in Tehran every Friday. For his information, anti-government protests are not on Fridays but on Saturdays, and moreover, these are not in Tehran, but in Paris (the capital of France by the Yellow Vests).”
The US, which is beset by myriads of problems, including social ills, such as widespread drug abuse, 31 percent of mass shootings in the world, as many as 2.2 million prisoners, and 40 percent children born out of wedlock, is not its own master, but the slave of the barbaric illegal Zionist entity, which dictates the foreign policy of a rapidly declining America.
As Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out: "Although we do not underestimate the enemy, we are the least awed by its over-inflated might. So no one should fear the apparent power of the US; neither their grandeur nor the wealth of the Korahs of the Persian Gulf. Their real power is much less than the uproar they make.”
Despite the Leader of the Islamic Revolution’s outlining of the undeniable facts, it would be naïve to expect any dawning of realities at the White House for defusing a crisis of its own making, since demagogues devoid of commonsense persist in their disorderly behaviour until their headlong fall.
Neither we think the big three European powers who are signatories to the JCPOA will fulfill their commitments, both because of their being beholden to the US as part of the Western alliance and the long history deception towards Iran, of Britain, France and Germany.
As for the Arab regimes, similar to Israel, they lack any legitimacy and fearful of their survival for long, will continue to cause mischief in the region as agents of imperialism and Zionism, until they vanish from the scene, as was the case of Saddam.
Therefore, the Islamic Republic needs to be on high alert against all sorts of economic and military plots, and take due measures for strengthening its national interests, for the ultimate victory belongs to the righteous.
