Today is Sunday, May 17, 2020. It has been 130 days since the supreme leader declared US forces must leave the Middle East. His words were backed up by a display of IRGC capabilities with a precision attack on a US base hundreds of miles from Iranian territory. It is Day 130 of this grace period.
This Reuters story reports that Ayatollah Khamenei has repeated and confirmed his initial call.
Echoing the predictions of the Second Signpost and the ram getting to do all it wants to do, Khamenei said, “The Americans won’t stay in Iraq and Syria and will be expelled.”
The IRGC will strike west, north, and south when it is ready.
