Nation Not Shaken by US Threats, Tirades

Trump’s actions have confirmed what Iran has been saying for years about the gross political, economic, moral and social corruption in the US establishment

Nation Not Shaken by US Threats, Tirades

Leader of Islamic Revolution said the threatening language of the new US President Donald Trump toward Iran will be responded by the nation at Friday rallies celebrating the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. 
Friday is the 38th anniversary of the toppling of the US-backed monarchical regime. 
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei was addressing a gathering of commanders, officers, pilots and staff members of Iran's Air Force and Air Defense Base in Tehran on Tuesday, IRNA reported. 
Pointing to the Trump administration's threats against Tehran over a recent missile test, Ayatollah Khamenei said the US president intends to scare Iranians.
"An Iranian does not fear threats," he said. "No enemy can paralyze this great nation."
Trump, who had taken a tough line against Iran on the campaign trail, released a series of Twitter tirades against Tehran following its test launch of a ballistic missile on Jan. 29. 
He said Iran has been "put on notice", and his government imposed sanctions on individuals and entities allegedly linked to Iran's missile activities. 
Dismissing his threats, Iran reminded him that its missile tests are allowed under the July 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, as well as the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 underpinning it.  
The resolution "calls upon" Iran to refrain from testing missiles "designed" to carry nuclear warheads, an objective that Iran is not pursuing. 
Trump tweeted earlier this month that "Iran is playing with fire; they don't appreciate how 'kind' President Obama was to them. Not me!" 
"Why should we be thankful to the previous US administration? Because of anti-Iran sanctions? Or creating Daesh [an Arabic acronym for the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group]? Or setting Syria and Iraq on fire? ... Or its blatant support for the sedition after the 2009 [presidential] elections?" 
"We would never thank that administration, as it sought to paralyze the Iranian nation and government by imposing harsh sanctions, which of course did not work."
Ayatollah Khamenei said Trump had to be thanked for "lessening Iran's burden" by confirming what Iran has been saying for "38 years" about the gross political, economic, moral and social corruption in the US establishment. 
"By his words and measures during his election campaign and after that, he put on display the real face of the US for the world to see," he said.
