1. Iran’s supreme leader on Tuesday reportedly ruled out any talks with the U.S. amid increased tensions between the two nations in the wake of crippling attacks at oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. “There will be no talks with the U.S. at any level ... all officials in the Islamic Republic unanimously believe this,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, according to The Associated Press. He added that Iran must prove that the Trump administration's “maximum pressure policy” is not "worth a penny for the Iranian nation."...... 2. Iran has shown the world the importance for a nation to stick to its guns in dealing with the American Empire or any hegemonic power that seeks to force its will on the rest of the world. Hence we don’t find any Iranian traitor or "soulless zombie" going all the way to the US to take a snapshot shamelessly with Pelosi and other imperialists. We don't find the US demanding Iran, for example, to let it open a consulate in a selected location. Similarly, we don't find the US looking for fun in enacting law after law against Iran just to make America look great again. In short, it does not matter whether a country has a nuclear bomb or not. What's most important is that a great nation must not only have principles but a "soul" to last till doomsday.
