Washington: Iran's Supreme Leader tweeted a graphic that appears to depict President Obama holding a gun to his head as Britain relaxed its travel advice to the nation, citing decreased hostility under the Iranian government.
The bizarre, provocative image was posted as Obama tries to convince Congress to approve a controversial nuclear deal with the Islamic republic. "US president has said he could knock out Iran’s military. We welcome no war, nor do we initiate any war, but if any war happens, the one who will emerge loser will be the aggressive and criminal US,” reads the caption above the tweet sent by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on @khamenei_ir, his English language account.
In his latest rhetorical dismissal of Washington, Iran's Supreme Leader tweeted a warning against any military action against Iran by what he called the "aggressive and criminal US." The silhouette resembling US President Barack Obama suggests that any sort of strike against Tehran would be a suicidal move for the American leader.
Iran's Supreme Leader and a number of the his country's hardliners have been outwardly critical of the recent agreement reached between their country and the P5+1 nations, including the US. Earlier this month, Khamenei reassured worshipers that "even after this deal our policy towards the arrogant US will not change."
The Ayatollah had also pledged that his country would "never stop supporting our friends in the region", and highlighted places such as Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon, all of whom have hosted proxies or allies of Iran.
