Iran's Islamic Revolution Meant "40 Years Of Failure": Trump Advisor

Iran's Islamic Revolution Meant

Imam Khomeini had lived many years in exile, in Iraq and France, before returning home and leading a historical revolution that overthrew Pahlavi regime. "The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday.

In a report coinciding with the celebrations, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) said that 61,900 political prisoners had been held in Iran since the 1980s.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that Iran was determined to expand its military power and ballistic missile programme despite mounting pressure from hostile countries to curb Iran's defensive work, state TV reported.

Iran's president also insisted that Iranians "have not asked and will not ask for permission" to develop different types of missiles, Rohani said.

This year's anniversary come as tensions are rising with the US and Iran is grappling with re-imposed USA sanctions.

"Our missiles can travel very far, and confront any enemy, including the Iranian proxies in our region", he said from the base in Haifa, a day after an top Iranian commander threatened to raze the city if the U.S. attacked the Islamic Republic.

National Security Adviser John Bolton on Monday lashed out at the Iranian regime during its 40th anniversary of the Islamic Republic, lambasting the Ayatollahs for "40 years of failure", and predicting: "I don't think you'll have many more to enjoy".

"The presence of people today on the streets all over Islamic Iran... means that the enemy will never reach its evil objectives", President Hassan Rouhani told those crowding into Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) square.

Hundreds of thousands of soldiers, militia members in camouflage fatigues, clerics, and ordinary citizens flocked to the streets of other Iranian cities and towns to commemorate February 11, 1979, when followers of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini ousted a USA -backed monarch, Shah Reza Pahlavi.

Rouhani also vowed Iran would defeat USA sanctions, reimposed after President Donald Trump withdrew from Tehran's nuclear accord with world powers a year ago.

But despite the official festivities today's Islamic republic faces acute economic challenges as it struggles with a mix of domestic hardships and U.S. sanctions.

Rouhani also promised that Iran would overcome its economic hardships, worsened by the restored US sanctions.

"The Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran".

"Iran continues to seek nuclear weapons to intimidate people all around the globe and ballistic missiles to use as delivery systems". "I am not ignoring the threats of the Iranian regime, but nor I am impressed by them", he said.

"If this regime makes the terrible mistake of trying to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa, it will not succeed", he said. "They should take this into account", Netanyahu said in a warning to his country's archfoe.

Washington and the Arab world have viewed Iran with great suspicion since the Islamic Revolution, fearing Khomeini's radical ideology would inspire militants across the Middle East.

In Iran, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is the branch of the military responsible for upholding the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
