?How did Ayatollah Khamenei predict US withdrawal from Iran Deal
The main policy of the U.S. is to digest powers and world policies in the stomach of American policies. This is not particular to us. Of course, their enmity towards us is of a particular kind. This is the characteristic of the enmity between us and them, but they show enmity towards other countries in any case. They show enmity in political, economic and cultural areas.
Today, the satanic apparatuses and powers of the world are pushing people into this quagmire of ignorance and deviation on a daily basis and they confront everything that is opposed to their satanic movement. Now, the American gentlemen who meet with our officials complain about this humble person’s pessimism about them. Well, should I be optimistic? With the condition that you are in, can one be optimistic about you? A few days ago, when there was talk of sanctions against Iran, one of their “excellencies” said in a program that was broadcast on our television as well, that as long as the Islamic Republic of Iran advocates and helps the resistance in the region, it will not be clear whether sanctions will be lifted or not.
Notice that this is the same thing that I used to say time and time again. I said this to officials both in private and in public meetings! I said to them, “Do you think that your issue with America will be over once you retreat on the issue of the nuclear issue?” Certainly not! Even if we do that, the issue of missiles comes up. They will say to us, “Why do you have missiles?” If they become disappointed with the issue of missiles, the issue of the resistance will come up. Again, they will say, “Why do you support Hezbollah, Hamas, and Palestine?” If you resolve this matter and if you retreat again, another issue will come up.
For example, the issue of human rights will come up. If you resolve the issue of human rights as well and if you say that you will act according to their standards on the issue of human rights, the issue of religion’s interference in the affairs of the government comes up. Do you think that they will leave you alone? They cannot tolerate the presence of a system in a country with such expansion, population, and resources because they are exceptional resources.
I will tell you that the vastness of our country, our population, our human resources and our underground resources are among the most prominent ones in the world. I do not want to boast. In the declaration that the Europeans published recently – we had access to it as well – when it comes to establishing relations with Iran and when it comes to analyzing our country, all the things that I said about the resources of the country – and I only referred to a small fraction of these resources – have been mentioned there. This declaration says that Iran is such and such a country with such and such resources, market, people, talents, underground resources, and extraordinary strategic location. This is what others are saying!
Well, it is difficult for them to see that a country with such characteristics and with such significance stands up to their bullying. It is intolerable for them to be witness to the formation of an Islamic and religious government which is based on faith and on Islamic principles and thoughts. That is why they show enmity and oppose and confront us. Our youths and our outstanding personalities should know this. I am not saying that you should constantly chant the slogan of “death to such and such a person”, “may such and such a person live long” and “may such and such a person die.” I am not saying this. I do not expect any of our youth to do so – of course, I expect them to do this in the right place – but you should be familiar with the political issues of the region and the county and you should be able to analyze them.

Two, three years ago – at the beginning of the recent phase of nuclear negotiations – I said that the Americans should make it clear for us what the extent of our retreat should be so that they stop showing enmity to us. They should make this clear for us. If the nuclear matter is resolved, will everything be over? Well, now the nuclear matter has been resolved. You should go and see if the issue is over or not! Then, they brought up the issue of missiles. If the issue of missiles is resolved, they will bring up the issue of human rights. If the issue of human rights is resolved, they will bring up the issue of the Guardian Council. If the issue of the Guardian Council is resolved, they will question the essence of Leadership and Wilayat-e Faqih. And if the issue of Wilayat-e Faqih is resolved, they will bring up the issue of the Constitution and the authority of Islam. This is the main issue. The dispute is not about trivial matters. Therefore, this notion is a wrong one.
This issue has been discussed with me a lot. There were some individuals from among my friends who thought that based on their beliefs and interest that this is possible. We sat and spoke about it in recent years. However, they themselves acknowledged later on – not to me, rather when I was absent and in formal decision-making meetings – that there is no answer to the arguments that I have presented in this regard. They are right. There is no answer to the arguments that I present on this matter. This is the case about our country and even when it comes to many other countries- the Americans do not intend in any way to get along with them.
You should know and pay attention to this. The main policy of the U.S. is to digest powers and world policies in the stomach of American policies. This is not particular to us. Of course, their enmity towards us is of a particular kind. This is the characteristic of the enmity between us and them, but they show enmity towards other countries in any case. They show enmity in political, economic and cultural areas.
