Why does it take the leader of our greatest enemy to articulate to Liberals exactly WHY IRAN IS A THREAT. Straight from the horse’s freaking mouth.
But according to Obama, “Iran’s not a serious threat to America’s security”
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who as Iran’s supreme leader is commander in chief of the Iranian military, predicted last week that terrorists would acquire nuclear weapons and “take away security from all the tyrants of the world.”
In his speech at the tomb of his predecessor, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Khamenei made it clear that he understood America to be the leader among “the tyrants of the world.”
Khamenei gave the speech to mark the 19th anniversary of the death of Ayatollah Khomeini, who died on June 3, 1989, ten years after he sparked a revolution in Iran that overthrew the regime of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, a U.S. ally, and instituted a Shiite Islamic theocracy.
But Khomenei doesn’t fail to validate the leftist talking point that Iran only wants “peaceful nuclear energy”
While predicting that terrorists would obtain nuclear weapons, Khamenei claimed Iran was not interested in obtaining nuclear weapons itself, but only wanted to develop nuclear energy.
which immediately preceded chants of “Death to Israel” that goes along with every major speech from Iran’s leaders.
At one point during Khamenei’s speech, according to a translated transcript published by the BBC, the crowd at the mausoleum chanted: “Death to Israel.” At other points, it chanted: “Palestine is victorious, Israel is defeated,” and “Nuclear energy, our absolute right.”
Khamenei’s virulent attacks on Israel appeared to echo the rhetoric of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has said that “Israel should be wiped off the map.”
