Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Monday warned the United States against keeping a military presence in the Persian Gulf and vowed that the Islamic Republic will continue to carry out a range of war drills in the area, despite warnings, according to recent comments.
Khamenei blasted the U.S. military presence in the Persian Gulf in wide-ranging remarks that ordered America to return its forces “back to the Bay of Pigs.”
Khamanei also said that Iran has the military know-how to eradicate American forces from the region.
“Today, the enemies utter words bigger than their mouths; for instance they develop plans to bring to a halt Iran’s military wargames in the Persian Gulf, what a foolish remark,” Khamenei was quotedas saying on Monday, as Iran holds a series of war drills.
