Iran military says America’s hegemony declining on global stage
The Iranian military has commemorated the anniversary of the US embassy takeover by students as a symbol of the nation’s resistance against global arrogance and American hegemony.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces said the developments unfolding today in the region and elsewhere in the world foretell America’s decline.
Iran is marking the National Day of the Fight against Global Arrogance, which falls on November 4.
The statement said the occasion is a symbol of the Iranian people’s “oppression-fighting, freedom-seeking, resistance and perseverance” against the greed and hegemonic policies of the criminal US regime.
Forty two years ago on this day, Iranian students took over the American embassy in Tehran, also known in Iran as the “Den of Espionage,” less than a year after the Islamic Revolution toppled the US-backed Pahlavi dictatorship in 1979.
On the eve of the anniversary, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) released detailed footage of its successful seizing of an American vessel that had stolen a shipment of Iranian oil in the strategic Sea of Oman.
“Now, after over four decades of the Islamic Republic’s blessed existence, we are still witnessing repeated hostilities and inhumane conspiracies of the American terrorist regime and the fake Zionist regime against the people and the [government] of the Islamic Republic,” the Armed Forces’ statement read.
