Khamenei Threatens “Criminal America” in New Video


Ali KhameneiOn Sept. 13, the office of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei shared a video titled “If Any War Happens…” in which Khamenei warns: “Criminal America will be the side that will leave the war arena defeated.” The video opens with President Obama stating that the U.S. will not have a problem “knocking out [Iran’s] military with speed and dispatch if we choose to.”

In response, Khamenei advises the Americans to “use their experiences [in the Middle East] correctly,” as images play in the background: a swift boat attack on an American aircraft carrier, photos of the advanced American RQ-170 drone that Iran brought down on its soil, a photo of Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah against a backdrop of a missile flying the Hizbullah flag, photos from the 2006 Lebanon war, Khamenei delivering a speech to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards, Iranian missiles being launched and striking ships, bodies of American soldiers returning from Iraq, and a photo of Khamenei leading Iran’s top military echelon.

Khamenei warned Revolutionary Guards commanders on Wednesday to be on alert for “political and cultural” infiltration by the United States. “Enemy means global arrogance, the ultimate symbol of which is the United States.” The enemies “are waiting for a time when the nation and system fall asleep, for example in 10 years when I may not be here, to realize their objectives. But the nation and the authorities won’t let that happen.”
