DEATH TO AMERICA, CLARIFED.
Icheoku says the common refrain among many Iranians engaged in anti-America chants, "Death to America,' has been explained or rather clarified. According to the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the slogan does not mean death to American people; rather it is aimed at American policies which is very antagonistic to the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian people. In the leader's own words, the “aim of the slogan is not death to American people. The slogan means death to U.S. policies and arrogance.”
Icheoku says thankfully the recently reached Iranian Nuclear deal appears to be yielding some fruits, including this much needed clarification. What a good gesture this is, coming from the Iranian leader and regarding such a touchy issue. Icheoku agrees that some American policies definitely could use some rethinking and re-tweaking.
