Supreme Leader: Hit and Run Attack against Iran Impossible
( Fars News Agency) Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned on Saturday that it will be impossible for enemies to launch a "hit and run" military attack against Iran.
"Those who make threats should know that attack on Iran in the form of hit and run will not be possible and if any country invades Iran it will face its very serious consequences," Khamenei told a meeting of national officials including the heads of the three braches of government, Tehran Times reported.
The Leader said, "These threats will cause more readiness by Iranian nation and government."
The US has threatened Iran with military attacks if it does not cease its nuclear program which is quite legal and under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The Supreme Leader said the ultimate goal of these threats is to make Iranian people and authorities "scared".
The Leader also stated that "the Iranian nation and authorities will not let these threats find a way into their hearts" and they will prepare themselves in a variety of different ways.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the repetition of the enemy threats shows that the Western liberal democracy lacks any logic and wisdom.
In contrast to Iran's spiritual and rational influence in the region and the world, the Western liberal democracy uses the "language of threat" in the way an illiterate person behaves toward an intellectual person.
