Iran marks 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution

Iranians mark anniversary of victory day in 1979 revolution

The problem, for Khamenei, is that there is a public record of such virulent, hateful chanting going as far back as the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The scathing slogans appeared just days after Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said such insults should not be taken personally by US or Israeli citizens.

Over the past decade, Iran has frequently test-fired and displayed missiles, sent several short-lived satellites into orbit and in 2013 launched a monkey into space.

Mr Bolton, a leading hawk in the Trump administration's attempt to weaken Iranian influence, was tweeting as a huge crowd in Tehran gathered to celebrate the 1979 revolution, in which Muslim leader Ayatollah Ruholla Khomeini ended the centuries-old rule of the royal dynasty. 40 Years of Failure to adjust United States policy to reality.

"We have not asked and will not ask for permission to develop different types of. missiles and will continue our path and our military power", President Hassan Rouhani said in a speech at Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) square. "The long-suffering Iranian people deserve a much brighter future", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday.

The large turnout in state-sponsored rallies, in which USA and Israeli flags were burned, came as Iranians face mounting economic hardships many blame on the country's clerical leaders.

This year's anniversary comes as Iran deals with the aftermath of President Trump's decision in May to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and restore tough USA sanctions. They saw the revolution as the starting gun in a competition to push out the strongman Arab nationalism that had taken hold across the Middle East.

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

"It's been 40 yrs of failure".

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quick to respond saying later on Monday it would mark Iran's last revolution anniversary if it attacked any cities in Israel.

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

"Islamic Iran has reached a level... to protect its borders by effective military capabilities, and firmly punish any aggressor", Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif, spokesman for Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said during a rally celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution. On the fortieth anniversary of their revolution, they threatened to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa.
