There are some people who say that we should compromise with the US somehow and a little bit because this way, their enmities might decrease. This is not the case. They have not even shown mercy on those who trusted, pinned their hopes on and referred to the US for assistance. Who for example? Dr Mosaddeq. In order to fight and stand up against the English – this is what he wished to do – he turned to the Americans. He met with and negotiated with them and asked for their help. He trusted them. The coup d'état of the 28th of Mordad was not launched by the English, rather it was launched by the US against Mosaddeq.
This means that they are not even pleased with the likes of Mosaddeq. They want servants and docile and subservient agents. Who for example? For example, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. They want such individuals so that they rule over this rich, blessed, wealthy and sensitive country – in terms of its geographical position and various capabilities. They are looking for someone whose hands are tied and who submits to them. This is what the Americans want. If such agents do not act like this, they turn into enemies. On the issue of Tabas, they showed enmity and they received a blow on their head. On the issue of destroying our passenger plane, they showed enmity. On the issue of sanctions, they have shown enmity since the first day. Today, they are showing enmity as well. They are acting in the most vicious way in the area of ruining the nuclear negotiations and their results –the agreement known as the Bar-Jaam [the JCPOA]. So, they are enemies.
