'Although we have always had the ability to tread this path, we declared it haram (forbidden by religion) according to the verdict of the beloved Islam and therefore there is no reason for us to expend our resources on developing and stockpiling a weapon that is absolutely prohibited by Islam to use', Ayatollah Khamenei said to a group of Iranian students.

The Leader hailed the Iranian scientists' achievements in defense, medical sciences, engineering, nanotechnology and peaceful nuclear energy despite the increasing foreign pressure.

'We live in a different situation than others,' Ayatollah Khamenei said. 'We need to think Iranian, act Iranian and live Iranian and this trend can be accelerated by adopting the Islamic-Iranian Blueprint for Progress.'

The US has never really cared about the nuke issue. It is all a red herring. The US's real goal is overthrowing the Islamic Republic and stealing their resources; it always has been since 1979 and always will be. Just the tactics and strategy change, but the real goal never does.

The US targets any and all non-compliant governments who don't follow the US's so-called "rules based" world order. The rules are neoliberalism, which is just another word for old fashioned colonialism. It has just been dressed up with modern sounding words like democracy, freedom and above all the "free-market".

Free-market means privatization, austerity and debt slavery for the people. It is old fashioned pillage and plundering for the rich. That is what US foreign policy has always been about.
