Iranian leader celebrates: U.S. has 'given up'. Mocks Obama with banner, 'America cannot do a d--- thing'
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali
Khamenei took to the stage last week to proclaim the U.S. has “given up”
on using military force to stop its ambitions and to boast that a
worldwide “Islamic Awakening” cannot be stopped.
Speaking on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the death of his
predecessor, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic
Republic who died in 1989, Khamenei issued his first public reaction
since U.S. President Barack Obama asserted in a foreign policy speech at
West Point that his diplomatic relations with Iran were proving more
effective than the threat of military action.
