Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said Iran will “slap” the United States by defeating U.S. sanctions targeting the country’s economy.
“With the grace of God, we will defeat sanctions. And the defeat of sanctions is the defeat of America,” Khamenei said on October 4 in a speech at Tehran’s Azadi stadium, RFERL News reports.
“After vast explorations, the enemy has arrived at sanctions to counter the Islamic Republic. It has no other option but waging economic sanctions as it is facing a deadend in every other corner, economic sanctions are more fragile than our national economy.
Our national economy can beat the sanctions. The failure of the sanctions would mean (ultimate) defeat for America, and the US should once again be slapped in the face by the Iranian nation, God willing, with this defeat.
The enemy intends to push the Iranian nation into this conclusion that the country has come to a deadend and has no other option, but to kneel and give into the US, those promoting such a viewpoint at home are traitors to the country.
The Iranian nation has been blessed with invincibility, which is rooted in its 1979 Islamic Revolution, its eight-year Holy Defense of the country against the ex-Iraqi regime’s war in the following years, and in general, its steadfast resistance over the past 40 years in the face of all enemy plots.
The grandeur and authority of the Islamic Republic and its invincibility are not empty talk or mere slogans. It is a fact that the enemies seek to keep us ignorant of.
The US’s enmity towards the Iranian nation is not merely due to “Death to America” chants, The Americans are afraid of Islamic power and the Revolution’s might.” ~Ayatollah Khamenei
