Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned the US airstrike on the Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia in Iraq while giving a speech in Tehran on Wednesday.

“It’s not only me, the government and the people strongly condemn this US crime as well,” Khamenei said.

In response to remarks made by US President Donald Trump accusing Iran of orchestrating protests at the US embassy in Baghdad, Khamenei said that the reason behind Iraqi discontent with the US lies with Washington’s interventionism in the region.

“People of this region hate the US. Why don’t Americans understand it? You Americans have committed crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Khamenei said.

On Tuesday, protesters angry about US air strikes on the Iranian-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia in Iraq and Syria managed to storm the US embassy in Baghdad and set parts of the premises ablaze.

If a foreign country destroyed my country’s infrastructure,killed my president and over one million of my countrymen, not once but thrice, I would never ever trust them. I would want them gone. Iraqis living in US who are brave will tell you this. This man speaks the truth. Love him or hate him, Truth is the Truth. Neocons have an agenda and are blind to truth. It is not them or their family who are placed in harms way.Let these Psyco neocons fund their own wars with ZERO monies,arms or support from the government. Let them be foot soldiers etc.… Read more »

Bush was wrong : Islam is terrorist by essence, anyone who red Surat 9 gets that Muhammad was clearly a terrorist, so is Khamenei! Moreover, he’s an opium smoking junky.

BTW, Saddam was a tyrant who came to power by a coup. He had no more legitimacy than most of MENA leaders, c’mon, Iraqis celebrated his demise, so will Iranians will do about Khamenei when the people will retake the control of the country.

ROFL! Khamenei ordered his puppets to shoot rockets against an US base, now he’s dropping crocodile tears because US fired back! Let us laugh! Kataeb Hellbollah looked for troubles by poking Godzilla, when you poke Godzilla, you get what you looked for! Actually, since the orders came from Tehran, US should have blasted Khamenei’s palace in retaliation, this would had been 100% legal under international law, period! I really don’t get why the world uses so much restraint towards the Tehran’s roaches regime. Just follow the Hague Convention and retaliate any attack by Iranian proxies directly on the Iranian regime… Read more »

Iranians have always poked Godzilla. They burned Athens and Alexander was the response. They attacked Islam 1st, then lost their empire to the 1st counter-attack. Then they behead the emissary of Genghis and lose most of their lands to Mongols. They pissed off Timur who does not get credit for the millions of Iranians he killed and replaced with Turks. Iranian hate of America is a great honor, considering the company we are included with.
