Iran Leader Ayatollah Khamenei: Enemy 'defeatable' despite its grandeur
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has lauded the great achievements and in the country’s Armed Forces, saying the enemy is " defeatable" despite all its seemingly solid calculations and military power.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting with the top commanders and officials of the Iranian Armed Forces on Sunday.
The Leader voiced his satisfaction with the continuous progress in the Iranian Armed Forces over the years and described as “absolutely necessary” the readiness of the Armed Forces for deterring enemies and their vigilance against the behind-the-scene plotters.
“Arrogant powers wage a conflict from behind the scenes wherever benefits them.”
“Paying close attention to the enemy's five- or ten-year schemes is necessary, but mid- and long-term plots should be considered and monitored.”
Touching upon the two wars the United Sates started in the east and west of Iran about two decades ago, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “Americans had interests in Iraq and Afghanistan, but their ultimate goal was the Islamic Iran, and, due to the solid foundations of the Islamic Revolution, they failed in the cases and their ultimate goal.”
“Therefore, the enemy can be defeated with all his seemingly solid calculations and military power,” the Leader said.
Ayatollah Khamenei said it was imperative not to underestimate the enemy. “At no stage should one ignore the enemy's machinations and plans.”
