[Ed. – Khamenei stood on a podium amid banners proclaiming ‘America cannot do a damn thing’ as Obama droned on at West Point last week. The Ayatollah doesn’t know who he’s messing with. Apparently, he hasn’t seen Obama’s workout video.]
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has taunted President Barack Obama, claiming that the U.S. no longer has the guts for battle.
Speaking at an event commemorating the 25th anniversary of the death of his predecessor, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khamenei, the 74-year-old Shiite Muslim cleric proclaimed that ‘military attack is not a priority for Americans now.’
‘Since World War II, some of our most costly mistakes came not from our restraint, but from our willingness to rush into military adventures – without thinking through the consequences,’ Obama told graduating cadets.
Khamenei took the president’s message to mean, ‘They have renounced the idea of any military actions.’
‘They realize that military attacks are as dangerous or even more dangerous for the assaulting country as they are for the country attacked,’ the ayatollah said in the Tehran speech Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported.
