Iran announces military buildup amidst Islamic Revolution anniversary | DW News

Iran is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its Islamic Revolution. Meanwhile, the nation is facing a series of political and economic hardships. Despite US sanctions and tensions with the Iranian leadership, the EU is committed to trade with Iran. Last week, the EU launched a trade mechanism meant to provide a lifeline to Iranian firms and bypass US sanctions, which in turn drew a warning from Washington. Today, tens of thousands of people gathered in the capital of Tehran for a rally led by President Hassan Rouhani. He told crowds that Iran is determined to expand its military power and ballistic missile program, and won’t ask anyone for permission to do so.

  1. When your holy festival’s are measured by moon phases and sightings of the new moon you know you’re dealing with lunatics that need quarantining and their madmen locking away forever. ☀️🌍🌙

  2. I am 40yrs old and all I know is that Iran is not a Country of Victims. What I have seen is people turning on people in the name of God. Please explain.

  3. Now Iranian are regret.they say God bless shah

  4. A lot of Iranians regret overthrowing the shah, now with the influence of soft power people specially youth from big cities like tehran is so much attracted by ideologies of secularism, liberalisation and cultural freedom. They want the rights that we in the democratic world enjoy. And I believe another revolution is around the corner. It's inevitable it can this year, next year, next decade or even several decades but it is going to happen

    Stay strong the noble nation of Iran, you have defied the greatest power on the planet and its puppet allies and I hope you continue to do so. Violence will solve nothing. This Sunni/Shia divide needs to end before it reaches a point where the generations to follow us will only know hatred and fear against one another.
    Peace and blessings be to all of you, no matter what nation you hail from or what faith you follow. ❤️🌹❤️

  31. we support our revolution until we die. because its our duty to defend Isalm.

  32. It's funny how easy it is to fool westerners, iran is a 80 milion country, gathering 200 thousand kids and military personnel in a square is very easy, just give each one a key chain and they will come, most will come out of fear anyways, these news agencies are either naive or are paid to say and show what iran government wants, one thing is known, Europeans don't care about any standards as long as they can profit something, as long as they make money in iran, who cares about freedom or justice for iranians

  33. in the name of god
    iran is immortal
    peace be upon emam khamenei(iran's supreme leader)

  34. Why didn’t you start the history of this circle when the USA and U.K. joint hands in a Coup d’État in 1952 against democratically Elected President Mossadegh who nacionalizes the oil operation in Iran ..? Then the USA have put there their Puppet leading to the radicalisation of the system with religion ruling … HYPOCRITES !

  35. Iran was robbed of it's democracy by America and Britain.

  36. "An island of stability"
    Because they controlled their oil and government back then. When the revolution ended that control, it becomes called a terrorist state.

  37. Why soudi Is best allie to west
    And iran is regime

  38. "Hardline" ?? Why when someone stick and follow their religion you guys call them "Hardline" ?? Which one is not hardline? Secular??
