Iran Marks 40th Anniversary Of Islamic Revolution

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians marched and some burned United States flags to mark the revolution's 40th anniversary on Monday (Feb 11) as Teheran showed off ballistic missiles in defiance of USA efforts to curb its military power. Chris Murphy warned in a tweet on Tuesday that Trump's hawkish national security adviser is knowingly lying to build momentum for a US military attack on Iran.

"Today, 85 percent of our defensive equipment and needs are built by our own powerful, fearless engineers inside the country, whereas in the past regime, 95 percent of our weapons was foreign", Rouhani said.

"Exactly forty years ago, the Iranian people, led by Imam Khomeini, carried out a revolution".

Rouhani promised that his country will not abandon missile programme and promised that the "enemy" conspiracies against Iran will fail.

While the U.S. might be engaging in pressure tactics with President Trump's overtly confrontational tweets, there is no denying the fact that Iranians face mounting economic hardships and a loss of freedom. People young and old renewed their allegiance to the country's Islamic principles, chanting anti-American slogans - a common occurrence in Iran during revolutionary celebrations.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

But he remained defiant on Monday as Iranians recalled the end of a monarch who catered to the rich.

The two countries have not had diplomatic relations since 1980, and Trump has pulled the United States from an worldwide agreement meant to reward Iran for giving up nuclear weapon ambitions. "The Iranian people have and will have some economic difficulties but we will overcome the problems by helping each other", he said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismissed the threat.

"However, this would be the last anniversary of the revolution that they celebrate".

Israel is trying to counter the influence carved out in Syria by Iran, which has supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the war that erupted in 2011. "They should take this into account", Netanyahu said in a warning to his country's archfoe.
