The state-run Tasnim News Agency reported that during a meeting with the families of the so-called “Shrine Defenders” who were killed in Syria and Iraq, Khamenei accused the US of planning to “create [disruption] and civil war with the help of sanctions and counter security measures” and “drag people on the streets” to protest in Iran.
He told the families that “contrary to the irrelevant analysis of some people who were senseless and attached to the West” the regime was strong and claimed that they would “celebrate the occasion [of the Regime’s 40th Birthday in February] grander than previous years”, in response to comments from UN National Security Advisor John Bolton that the Regime would not see its 40th birthday.
However, recent street protests in cities across Iran especially in Ahwaz and Shush have underlined the fundamental weakness of a regime.
Despite striving to circumvent US sanctions by most EU countries and turning their back to human rights and attempted terror attacks on their soil, the regime has been unable to satisfy the expectations of everyday Iranians, who see the country’s resources plundered on corruption and foreign military adventures by clerics and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who deny basic freedom.
Protests that began in Mashad on Dec 28, 2107, over rising food prices, quickly expanded into a nationwide uprising focused at the rule of Ali Khamenei. The protesters’ demand has resonated outside of Iran and led to international support.
