Looking for something else, l found this 2005 article -which has been taken down, but was linked from another site.

What this article said is that US pilots are flying into lranian air space getting them to "turn on their radars" so the US can map a grid of lRl air defenses for targeting.

Pres. Rouhani: Enemies trying to tell world that Iran is an isolated island

Quote

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say, "Enemies are trying to tell the world that Iran is an isolated island and we must disappoint them”.

“Let us have trust in people and tell them that our system is not a single-party, communist or monarchy one, and parties are free in this country,” added the President, adding that, "Our nation will not let America win”.

He said, "I believe that elections, especially parliamentary elections, are crucial, but what is more important is preserving social capital”.

Dr. Rouhani also addressed the people and said, "Do not turn your back on the ballot box; today is the day to go to the ballot box”.

“Participation, supervision, safety and security of the elections and vitality in the society are everybody’s duty,” said the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

In meeting with Chairman of Russian State Duma:

Pres. Rouhani: Iran not interested in spread of tensions in region

Referring to the selection of the current and former Iranian ambassadors to Russia from among Iranian parliament members, the president said, "I trust Mr. Kazem Jalali's ability and I am confident that he will continue Mr. Sanai's efforts to develop relations between the two countries."

Dr. Rouhani further stated, "The trilateral relations between Iran, Russia and China and the joint operation in the Gulf of Oman mean that the three countries are determined to have closer relations".

The President described Russia's position on the martyrdom of Martyr Soleimani and said, "We witnessed US' state terrorism in a third country (Iraq), and it is very important that the two countries become more sensitive towards state terrorism".

"We are not interested in the spread of tensions in the region," Dr. Rouhani said, adding, "Regional stability is important for us and Russia and we are ready to cooperate more in this regard".

The President described relations with the Eurasian countries very important for Iran and added, "We are witnessing the beginning of trade relations with Eurasian countries and the Russian government has had good cooperation in this area and we want to continue this cooperation."

Thousands of Iranians mark revolution anniversary amid peak tensions with U.S.

DUBAI (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Iranians poured into the streets of Tehran and other cities on Tuesday morning to commemorate the 41st anniversary of the Islamic revolution, against a backdrop of escalating tensions with the United States.

State TV showed video footage of rallies in at least half a dozen cities outside the capital, including Mashhad, Ahvaz and Kerman, with people holding signs that read, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”.

Iran almost got into a full-blown conflict with the United States last month after a U.S. drone strike killed top Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad on Jan. 3, prompting Iran to retaliate with a missile barrage against a U.S. base in Iraq days later.

Tensions spiked between Iran and the United States after U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew from a multilateral nuclear deal with Iran in 2018 and reimposed sanctions in a bid to pressure Tehran to negotiate over its ballistic missile program and ties with regional proxy groups.

Missiles were put on display as part of the anniversary celebrations, according to the Tasnim news agency. Iran’s state TV showed archival footage of missile launches and underground missile storage facilities as part of its anniversary coverage.

The missile program is not intended for attacks on neighboring countries, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday.

Salam @hasanhh yeah it has a bit of truth also Rouhani & hi party are in lowest point of popularity that even they lost many previous fans because all people know him & his party responsible for sudden increasing of fuel price  & Martyiring Gen Soleimani also he & his party only think about conquering of Iranian parliament for remaining in power but they don't care about people demands from them even make fun of misery of people or insult them except during election time but after election they think that they are elites with no responsibility toward people even people that voted in favor of them.

@Ashvazdanghe  l looked at all the abna.ir 41st pictures. The one of the old man l have seen before.

Thanks for the pictures.

Question: Parliamentary elections are this week l understand. 0f course, 'hezshaytan' media is dounouncing the Guardians for ruling so many thousands as "ineligible" to run for office. ls there anything like a 'fad' or 'protest' or something else whereby people apply to run knowing they are ineligible? How many were ruled ineligible, because the media here gave some multi-thousand number (l believe it was 38k)?

Salam their number & names  not released officially  but only reformists that are Rouhani party criticized it & exaggerated about numbers & used "  'hezshaytan' media" as a tool to show themselves as victims but they lose their popularity among people from many months ago that by martyrdom of Gen Soleimani they lost rest of their popularity .

Can't edit the post... sorry

 

U.S. officials have confirmed to Fox News Thursday that a U.S. Navy warship intercepted Iranian-made weapons from a vessel in the Arabian Sea earlier this week.

Crew members from the USS Normandy seized a huge cache of weapons from a dhow – a small vessel with lateen sails – on Sunday while conducting maritime security operations in the U.S. Central area of operations.

The weapons and weapon components were intended for the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, according to officials.

From the picture:  They sure look like a happy, elderly crowd.

"lavish conferences" in Paris: probably all paid for with American Tax Dollars and Accumulating Debt.
