Iranian Leader Says Americans Shouldn’t Take “DEATH TO AMERICA” Chant Personally
Well how else should they take it? I mean it's plain as day, a fired up crowd, hanging on the every word of their leader, Ali Khamenei, and chanting over and over "DEATH TO AMERICA!". The address was broadcast earlier on the Iranian news channel IRINN and thousands were in attendance live.
"This slogan that is chanted is not a slogan against the American people. Our people respect the American people," he insisted to 60 Minutes in an interview due to be aired this Sunday, where he speaks to reporter Steve Kroft.
"When the people rose up against the Shah, the United States aggressively supported the Shah until the last moments. In the eight-year war with Iraq, the Americans supported Saddam." he claims "People will not forget these things. We cannot forget the past, but at the same time our gaze must be towards the future."
No matter what side of the isle you claim to be from, are you prepared for yet another middle east conflict? This seems to be the direction America is being pulled in yet again.
