Mullahs define roadmap to defeat hegemonic regimes

Baztab reports that Iran's top mullah -- Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei -- is chortling at the West's continued impotence.

"We never yield to the global arrogance and consider opposition to the hegemonic powers as the agenda of the Iranian diplomacy.The hegemonic powers regard the international relations as a chess play, expecting other nations to play role of pawns and fall victims whenever the big powers require them to do so..."

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that Tehran has emerged successfully in its 30-year campaign against hegemonic powers in the international relations... In a meeting with Iranian ambassadors abroad, Ayatollah Khamenei said that the Foreign Ministry is expected to uphold national interest which is in line with long-term strategy of the Islamic Revolution and the 20-Year Vision Plan for Economic, Social and Cultural Development (2005-2025).

...the Supreme Leader said that the principles of the Islamic Revolution are inseparable from the national interest and national identity and the major issues in foreign policy should be viewed from this perspective... The Supreme Leader cited the example of Iranian ability to produce nuclear energy and said that such a success was made while the influential countries had imposed sanctions on Iran...

Unfortunately for the mullahs, Iran's 20-year "Vision Plan" is currently under construction.

Perhaps we'll get lucky and it won't be finished until after Democrats have figured out their platform on global terrorism.
