Official Khamenei Website Handout Via ReutersMORE: What's behind the latest European bid to save the Iran nuclear deal and how it could end up killing itBut at Friday Prayers Ayatollah Khamenei said that the plane crash and subsequent protests were being used by Iran’s enemies to distract from the IRGC victory in striking against the U.S. bases in Iraq.
“The plane crash made our enemy happy as much as it saddened us,” he said. “They used it as means of questioning the IRGC and the Islamic Republic system. But they made a mistake.”Ayatollah Khamenei also criticized the U.K., France and Germany’s attempt to apply pressure on the regime to adhere JCPOA nuclear deal as another means to distract from Tehran’s perceived victory in its strike against the U.S. The three counties jointly announced this week that they “
trigger the dispute mechanism” of the nuclear deal, which amounts to a formal accusation of Iran violating the terms of the agreement.A handout, photo from Iran's Supreme Leader Office shows, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei leading a Friday prayer ceremony in Tehran, Jan. 2020.

Earlier this month President Trump moved tode-escalate the crisisin the aftermath of the Iranian missile attacks, saying that “Iran appears to be standing down” and the “American people should be extremely grateful.”However, Tehran still blames the Washington for withdrawing from the nuclear deal unilaterally in May 2018, and the government has denied any possibility of a new round of negotiations unless all of the nuclear-related sanctions on the country are lifted.Read more: ABC News »

You are the blow to America. That's why the educated don't watch your propaganda. Not exactly the way to keep the peace! Absolutely Iran is strong and we feel freindship on you.. This coming from a country that attacks commercial planes don’t know the difference between a Boeing jet and a fighter jet Haha. He'll be here all week folks.
Wrong! We knocked off your 3rd in command , you knocked over some of our stuff and some guys got a few scrapes. Keep believing that though So he's equating Iran with al qaeda? Is he related to Donald Trump? Do his people really believe this stuff? Dont let our ego create war. Why we just have peace on earth and be happy
RIGHT...LMAO!! it did nothing and no one was hurt. Most of the missiles where taken out by anti missiles Propaganda! It’s an Iraqi base. All the same everyday, these leaders Nooooooooooooo! A blow, keep dreaming son of Satan. Just goes to show how dumb that guy is. Trump has destroyed the image of America as a super power. We are no longer important to anyone in the world because trump has made us a laughingstock
This guy is great, I wonder if he actually believes it or feels that he just has to say it to “prove” his supremacy WishAmericaHadSupremeLeader Could have been worse just saying... to everyone talking shit on here It was? The shooting down of a civilian airliner with family members of the Iranian people was a blow to the Iranian people. Now the Iranian street says the ayatollah must go.
Hmmm, really? Trumps image is bad enough Ha ha ha in your dreams!!! Is ABC a news outlet for this terrorist regime? 🤣🤣🤣 🤣🤣 Let me get this straight, they blew down a Ukrainian plane they shot out Base and America doesn't really care much. Why did they attack them firstly? For some Reason this seems like a proxy, leaders using a world stage to Target people?
KHAMENEI dear it's a BLOW to DONALD and not the USA ! When the devil speaks. Slow day again ABC? And his people are hungry and still living in caves 2020. No, he is wrong. Having Trump as the President is a blow to us being a superpower. One that I’m afraid we will never recover from. Big talk. I guess that's what you believe is necessary to stay in power. We took out one man and did not fire back at you because there was no need. But you know all too well how this could end. I pray it doesn't come to that. Stand down, open up and let's start talking.
He might want sit this one out. coward trump !! heel spur !! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 He can sit down. Nothing he can say or do would damage the image of the U.S. as much as Trump and his band of thieves. Taking timeout from brutalizing and murdering his own people for a little TV time. His existence on earth is a blow to humanity.
Lol. Nope. Good. Someone has to fight and resist the New Roman Empire which many say is America. Rome kept expanding its military power all around and brought people into its Empire. They eventually fell. We should stop expanding militarily or else we will fall too. No, It Wasnt savedyouaclick Khamenei is sweating b/c young Iranians have had enough.
Some of you people are SICK with your comments. And the socialist democrat party agrees with you. Why do you advertise this? Does this type of stuff make you guys happy? This was not a blow, you wanna see a blow, we would blow them into space if we wanted too. 🤫😬🙂 Make sure you spread their propaganda for them
You forgot to put the word 'laughable' in that headline. No comment from him about killing 1500 protesters and shooting down a airliner? Weird... No, that credit goes to Trump for destroying image of US declining superpower Japan had the same attitude after Pearl Harbor and look how that turned out for them.
So 9/11 was friction ? Maybe he ended up like rocketman and shake hand with trump for photo op 🙈 All he did was give 11 soldiers a concussion... Keep beaking off No not really You killed more people in a funeral stampede than in a coordinated missile strike. Goodnight. Stop stealing TheDemocrats talking points

And this is the article that made me unfollow . Promulgating a cold war with the angle that protest/gay killing, plane shooting down maniacs are in the right? Sad time for American media.
