Iraq, not a bite for Americans to swallow
IRIB PERSIAN NEWS PAGE:
Ayatollah Khamenei cautioned Talabani that the ongoing insecurity is aimed at destabilizing the democratic Iraqi government, adding, 'Those who once conspired a ploy for Iraq and then saw it botched are now bent on destabilizing the situation in every possible way through their agents in the field that include terrorists, takfiris (excommunicators) and former Baathists.'
Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the perpetrators involved in the Iaqi insecurity conceal their face behind the cover of Shia-Sunni conflict, adding, 'The truth is the Shiite and Sunni people have already lived alongside each other for centuries without any internal dispute.'
The IR Leader said the Iraqi people are suffering a colossal misery and sorrow from the perpetuated policy of insecurity, adding, 'Those involved in the policy are intended to bring a Saddam-like dictator to power but will definitely fail to fulfill their intention.'
'Americans by no means would succeed in Iraq and their continued occupation of the country is not a bite for America to swallow,' Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
'A first measure to resolve the problem of insecurity in Iraq is delivering the security affairs to the Iraqi democratic government,' Ayatollah Khamenei said emphatically.
