Khamenei: U.S. wrong about Iran being toppled in 2-3 months
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei delivered a nationally televised address this morning, a day after the International Court of Justice handed the Islamic Republic a victory and the United States abrogated a friendship treaty with Iran.
Khamenei said that U.S.President Donald Trump had recently told some European leaders that Iran’s Islamic establishment would be toppled in 2-3 months, adding that such comments are nothing new.
"However, almost 40 years into the Revolution, the Islamic Republic has only grown more powerful," Khamenei said. "The enemy of the Iranian nation has failed to gain an understanding of the Revolution and the revolutionary spirit; this wrong analysis has misled it [the enemy] in the course of these years," PressTV cited him as saying.
The US’s enmity towards the Iranian nation is not merely due to 'Death to America' chants, Khamenei said. "They [the Americans] are afraid of Islamic power and the Revolution’s might," he stressed.
