Iran revolution brought repression, failure

Iran revolution brought repression, failure

The Iranian revolution promised a more fair and less corrupt society. Mr Trump used Ms Moaiery's photo alongside the caption: "40 years of corruption, 40 years of repression, 40 years of terror".

Last year, Iran cracked down on protests over poor living standards that posed the most serious challenge to its clerical leadership since a 2009 uprising over disputed elections.

'The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future, ' he added.

Unmanned surface systems, which can include explosive boats created to target enemy vessels, have concerned U.S. officials for some time, particularly after Iranian-backed Houthi rebels based in Yemen used such a boat to attack a vessel that belonged to Saudi Arabia.

Bolton has once again expressed a "passive, hostile and angry" reaction instead of gaining an insight into the great Iranian nation's culture and the Islamic Revolution's roots, he said.

Ballistic missile capabilities were on display during the main march, including the Qadr F, a ground-to-ground missile with a 1,950-km (1,220-mile) range, Tasnim news agency said.

An Iranian photographer has hit out at US President Donald Trump for using one of her award-winning pictures in a tweet.

The travel ban imposed by the Trump administration on several Muslim-majority countries, including Iran, has not only affected those living in these countries, but also their relatives in the USA, who are afraid to leave out of fear they would be turned away when they tried to return. "Now it's up to the Iranian regime to change its behavior, and ultimately up to the Iranian people to determine the direction of their country", national security advisor John Bolton tweeted on the anniversary of the upheaval.

On Feb. 11, 1979 Iran's army declared its neutrality, paving the way for the fall of USA -backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

State TV showed crowds defying cold rainy weather and carrying Iranian flags while shouting "Death to Israel, Death to America", trademark chants of the revolution which ousted the United States' most important ally in the Middle East.

In January, President Hassan Rouhani said Iran was facing its worst economic crisis since the Shah was toppled.

The Tehran-based photographer said that it was not the first time that top USA officials had used her images to promote the American agenda in Iran.

"We will not let America become victorious..."

It's worth noting that a new Trump White House sabotage campaign against the Iranian space launches would be unlikely to put Tehran into a state of shock.

The US sanctions have pushed Iran into recession, with Mr Trump hoping it will accept stricter limits on missiles and tougher measures to the 2015 deal.

"The world saw when Iran chose to help people of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and Yemen, they achieved victory".
