5:40 pm
topple an elected illegal government in iran. parently, he has forgotten at the resistance of the iranian nation for democracy and that did the country throw most of its support was the united states. president trump has forgotten the fact that after the victory of the islamic revolution and at the end of the day the revolution the plot by the nited states was another coup. osk, one more time, they tried
5:41 pm
they tried to repeat it. they have forgotten the fact since the 1980's and it was the united states that backed the invaders. they forgot the fact that when iran was being bombarded by chemically attacked the statement that what the u.s. was supposed to make in order to condemn the invaders and support the oppressed being invaded, they did the opposite. we need to go through the
5:42 pm
history much more carefully. over the past six decades or so, what they have done to the iranian people. ver the past 0 years after the islamic revolution how they treated the iranian nation. they should also go through geographic outcome as the how does a president doesn't know how to affect internationally recognized wish persian gulf? the same persian gulf that unform u.s. war ships keep coming and going for no apparent reason. they should attack their own military men to look at their

5:45 pm
civilization and culture and is committed to all international accords and agreements that i respect them. s it right to this nation or he country that keeps invading with the region? a country that has killed hundreds of thousands of people in different parts of the world from vietnam to latin america to other countries. a country that has used bombs, ombs to kill these people. someone should claim he wants to stand against nuclear weapons.

5:48 pm
couldn't defeat the iranian nation. many countries that join the sanctions regime against iran, in the end it was proven to them that they cannot defeat iran bringing it to the our country to our knees. it is much more clear tonight that more than before, they should remain united and stand together, more than before. they should remain united. the jcech tonight showed pmp oa is much more stronger than what the gentleman thought about it in the presidential campaign. few months have past since the
