The Ayatollah talks tough because he knows his partner Russia (see Syria, see global gas cabal) has got his back. He's another authoritarian leader-for-life, just like his authoritarian leader-for-life partner Putin.

And to think there are 'westerners' who want authoritarian systems to replace democracies. SMH

 “America, who is your elder, your leader and your master, was not able to bring the Iranian nation to its knees. You are too small to bring the Iranian nation to its knees.”

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Ayatollah, but the US could decimate your country from the air. We may not be able to easily occupy your country, but we definitely have the capability to lay waste to your beautiful cities.

Khamenei said the strike had dealt a “blow to America's image” as a superpower.

Did he also mention that the Holocaust never happened? Just curious.

If Iran dug up dirt on Biden I bet Trump would end the hostilities overnight.

Trump's not going to lay waste to any Iranian cities. He's going to build a Trump Tower in Tehran and the Ayatollah is going to be the first guest.

OK, he might not build a Trump Tower in Tehran, but he's not going to lay waste to Tehran. He's going to keep the sanctions on until the mullahs get with the program or the Iranian people rise up and overthrow them.

I hope Trump keeps the pressure on. There is a chance that the mullah regime will crack, because of popular resistance. Obama had the same chance, but supported the mullahs. Thank god the current potus is not a globalist swamp monster.

dismissing “American clowns” who he said pretend to support the Iranian nation but want to stick their "poisoned dagger” into its back.

Those clowns still managed to take out one of Iran's top Generals, its not the uniform its the ability.

In response to Soleimani's killing, Iran launched a barrage of ballistic missiles targeting U.S. troops in Iraq, without causing serious injuries. Khamenei said the strike had dealt a “blow to America's image” as a superpower.

Rumour has it the Iranians tipped off the Iraqi's who probably tipped off the Americans - regardless the Americans probably never suffered any casualties.

He also warned against any U.S. strikes on Iran over its nuclear program, saying the U.S. would be damaged “10 times over.”

Its not the Americans they should be worried about in regards to this, its the Israeli's they wont be sitting by and allowing this to happen.

Seems some 'experts' failed to notice that the Iranian response to the American sneak attack on a totally unprepared target was to fire a very small flight of missiles at a heavily defended, fully alerted American air base, and snipe out the targets they picked, and then repeat the process.

If, for all intents and purposes the American defences were powerless against Iranian offensive capabilities, only a fool would insist that the US could wipe Iran out easily.
