Iran revolution brought repression, failure

Young people born to the children of the revolution often refer to themselves as the'burned generation

Israel and Iran traded threats of mutual destruction on Monday as the Islamic Republic celebrated the 40th anniversary of its revolution.

The events Monday were the culmination of official celebrations called the "10 Day Dawn" that marks the period between February 1, 1979, and February 11 when Shiite cleric Khomeini returned from exile and ousted the shah's last government.

But despite the official festivities, today's Islamic republic faces acute economic challenges as it struggles with a mix of domestic hardships and USA sanctions.

The years since have been marked with domestic struggles between reformist and conservative politics, and worldwide disputes over Iran's nuclear development.

"40 Years of Failure to accept that Iranians will never return to submission".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has responded to US President Donald Trump's comments about the 1979 Iran Revolution by urging Trump "to rethink failed US policy after 40 years of wrong choices".

Ballistic missile capabilities were on display during the main march, including the Qadr F, a ground-to-ground missile with a 1,950-km (1,220-mile) range, Tasnim news agency said.

PSG striker Cavani could miss Man Utd first leg
We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar ", said PSG coach Thomas Tuchel . It's unclear if he will be able to play, but at this point it doesn't seem overly likely.

Trump was echoed by National Security Adviser John Bolton, who published a spate of tweets, in which he argued in particular that "the 40th anniversary of the Iranian regime only serves to highlight four decades of failure and broken promises".

In January, Rouhani said Iran was dealing with its worst economic crisis since the Shah was toppled.

"Today the whole world should know that the Islamic Republic of Iran is considerably more powerful than the days of the war", Rouhani said. "But if they attack us, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground", Brig.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has confirmed the Israeli army hit targets in Syria in an attempt to discourage Iran from gaining a foothold there.

Iranians attend a ceremony celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, at the Azadi, or Freedom Tower, in Tehran, Iran, Monday, Feb. 11. On the fortieth anniversary of their revolution, they threatened to destroy Tel Aviv and Haifa. Today, the United States, its Arab allies and Israel are trying to counter Tehran's growing influence in the Middle East, where it has proxies in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

The missiles have a range of up to 1,250 miles, placing Israel and USA military bases within range.

Cleric Hossein Firouzi told AFP Iran's revolution had achieved everything it set out to in terms of military power, political identity and scientific achievements.
