Iran Celebrates 40th Anniversary of Islamic Revolution

Chants of "Death to Israel" and "Death to Britain" followed, and demonstrators burned US and Israeli flags.

Trump said he envisioned keeping US troops in Iraq "because I want to be able to watch Iran" during an interview with Margaret Brennan of CBS News that aired February 3.

"40 years of corruption".

Hundreds of thousands of Iranians marched on the streets of Tehran Monday, burning American flags and taunting the West as it celebrated the Islamic Revolution's 40th anniversary by vowing to boost its ballistic missiles in defiance of USA efforts to curb its military.

The state has played up this year's anniversary as 40 is symbolic of maturity in the Islamic tradition and the age at which Prophet Mohammed received revelations from God.

Journalist Mikey Kay recalled in this vein that Bolton has spoken at least eight times at rallies organised by MEK (Mojahedin-e Khalq), an Iranian dissident group which calls for regime change in Iran and is known to pay up to $50,000 per speech. "The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday.

Iranians are facing mounting economic hardships which many blame on the country's clerical leaders.

Today marks the fortieth anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran - the year-plus struggle, ending in February 1979, that resulted in the ouster of the Shah and the ascendance of a zealous Islamist theocracy that has ever since been in a perpetual state of cold war with the broader West.

Last year, the government suppressed protests over poor living conditions in over 80 cities and towns.

Prices of food, especially meat, have risen a lot since U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran.

"The presence of people today on the streets all over Islamic Iran means that the enemy will never reach its evil objectives", Rouhani himself told the crowds, vowing the "US conspiracy" against Iran will never succeed.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Iran that this year could be the last time it celebrates the anniversary if it attacks his country.

"Islamic Iran has reached a level... to protect its borders by effective military capabilities, and firmly punish any aggressor", said Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif, spokesman for the IRGC.

"The United States does not have the courage to fire a single bullet at us despite all its defensive and military assets".
