(Persia Digest) – November 4, tomorrow, has been named National Day of Fight against Global Arrogance in Iran. The Supreme Leader of Iran met with thousands of students today and, pointing to US military, economic, and media activities against Iran, he said: “In this 40-year challenge between the US and Iran, the US has failed and Iran has been victorious.”
He elucidated: “The US aimed to impose its rule on Iran again during these forty years. But, it has failed despite all its efforts and conspiracies. Today, the only country in the world where the US is not a decision-maker is the IR of Iran, and this spells defeat for them.”
Ayatollah Khamenei continued by saying that American decline is a reality, adding: “Awe of America is declining in the world. today, this country is by far less strong than it was four decades ago.”
He continued: “Soft power in the US is currently at its weakest. Especially, since the election of its new president, not only people, but also governments clearly object to decisions made by the US.”
Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated: “Not only are America's intellectual power and soft power in decline now, but its strange president has also disgraced “liberal democracy ", which is the foundation of Western civilization.”
Iran’s Supreme Leader commented that US “hard power” was also on the decline, adding: “They have military means, but they have to use criminal organizations like Blackwater for their objectives because their marines are depressed, confused, and doubtful.”
He also cited America's legendary USD 800BN national deficit this year as a sign of economic downturn in the United States.
Ayatollah Khamenei reminded: “But Iran, on the other side of the equation, can be seen as having progressed and grown stronger over the past forty years.”
The Supreme Leader continued by saying: “We can interact with the US like other countries once it stops its domineering attitude. But this is highly unlikely, because this is the essence of arrogance and supremacy.”
