Khamenei: I sincerely thank Iraqi nation, government and brethren who hosted, welcomed and treated with love the pilgrims as well as the Iraqi prominent and political figures for facilitating the ArbaeenWalk. They did a great job.
Khamenei: The West is unable to comprehend and analyze the magnificent Arbaeen walk; for years they adopted the conspiracy of silence in the face of the glorious Arbaeen walk but this year they had to address it slightly— of course biased, adversarial and faulty analysis.

Khamenei: That U.S. politicians say sanctions against Iran are a new measure is actually an act of deceiving themselves or the American nation; because sanctions have always existed since revolution.
Khamenei: The people and youth in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries hate the U.S. for it's domineering ambitions and insulting others; but U.S. officials are unable to understand this hatred, so they blame us for it.
Khamenei: The Americans threaten us and indicate that if some country's youth attack U.S. or U.S. allies, they blame Iran for it. But we respond: To hell with you if you blame us; you better look at your hateful actions in those countries.

Khamenei: U.S.'s hard power— i.e., economic andmilitary powers— are also declining. U.S. military power is extensively confused andthat's why they have turned to companies like Black Water to achieve their military goals. The same is true about US economy: $15 tn debt and $800 b. budget deficit.
Khamenei: Even liberal democracy is being exposed too. Trump as the President of U.S. has unmasked them and the U.S. and liberal democracy have been all exposed and disgraced.
Khamenei: U.S.'s power is on a decline. Today, U.S. is much weaker than it was 40 years ago. It was the same during Obama's presidency, but it's more evident during current US pres. His every decision is opposed by the world; not just by the people but also by governments.
Khamenei: The challenge between the U.S. and Iran has lasted for 40 years so far and the U.S. has made various efforts against us: military, economic and media warfare. There's a key fact here: in this 40-year challenge, the defeated is the U.S. and the victorious is the Islamic Republic.
Khamenei: The U.S.'s goal in imposing sanctions is to paralyze and prevent the growth of national economy; but it resulted in a movement towards self-sufficiency in Iran. The Iranian nation used to import everything for years, it has developed a habit of producing everything.
