Naval Academy of Noshahr

Iran has defeated all of Americas vicious plans for the region

The following is the full text of the speech delivered on September 9, 2018, by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, at the graduation ceremony held at Imam Khomeini Naval Academy of Nowshahr.

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Ab-al-Qassem Al-Mustafa Muhammad, and upon his pure, immaculate and chosen household, especially the one remaining with Allah on earth
I congratulate all you dear youth, both the graduates of officers’ universities of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army and those who have received their epaulets in the beginning of this auspicious path. Looking at thousands of young, brave and pious youths from the universities of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army makes every wise individual hopeful about the future. The heavy responsibilities of the future of the country fall on youth, and you dear youth who are busy rendering services in this auspicious uniform have undertaken one of the most important and sensitive parts of this public responsibility. I hope that by Allahs favor, throughout your sweet and successful lives, you will be able to fulfil this great responsibility in the best way possible.
My dear ones, today, the army uniform is an auspicious uniform. Today, undertaking a responsibility in the Army is a glorious responsibility. You are defending a country and a people who have raised the flag of freedom and justice throughout the world. There are many peoples in different countries who love justice, but who do not have the arena to express their belief in justice and in liberation from the claws of arrogance. 
In the Islamic Republic of Iran, in our dear country, there is this privilege that the people can express their resistance against global oppression and global arrogance with a clear voice, without any secrecy. And this is the main reason behind the enmity of arrogance towards Islamic Iran and towards the Iranian nation. You are defending this nation, you are defending this country with all your power and with your deep religious and patriotic feelings and motivations. This is a great honor. You should appreciate the value of this honor and you should preserve it.
Dear youth, today, the world is witness to comprehensive oppression by usurping powers. Notice that today, our region and many other regions in the world are faced with problems which have been crafted by global arrogance. We speak about oppressive powers in the world without any hesitation and completely outspoken. Today, the policy that arrogance- headed by oppressive and cruel America- has adopted is a malicious policy. They have defined their interests in causing instability in many parts of the world, particularly in our region West Asia. This is their policy. 
They have defined their policy on the basis of waging wars- civil wars- in the region. They want brothers to kill one another. They want terrorism to be expanded in the region in disastrous ways. This is the policy that the US is pursuing today with the help of the Zionist regime and unfortunately with the help of some regional countries. Their goal is to prevent an Islamic power in the region to emerge and to rise up. This is their goal. 
They know that Islams message is the message of defending the oppressed and underprivileged classes and the policy of arrogance is to create poverty and oppression for nations. That is why they are intimidated by the emergence of an Islamic power. That is why they are active in the region. Waging domestic wars, causing insecurity and instability and developing terrorism are unfortunately the clear policies of the US in the region. The Islamic Republic has stood up against this policy with complete power.
My dear ones, what has astounded intelligent people around the world is that with reliance on Allah the Exalted and with reliance on national power, the Islamic Republic has managed to defeat the US in achieving its main goals in the region. This is not a claim that we have come up with. This is a claim that has been confirmed by political analysts around the world and they are surprised at it. This is a reality. Arrogant powers pursue their goals by yelling, by frowning and by showing off their power more than they do so with their capabilities and strengths. If a people are not intimidated by this yelling, if they are not taken aback by this frowning, if they trust and rely on their power and if they step onto the path of the truth and justice with courage, they will force superpowers into retreat and they will defeat them. And this has actually happened. 
It is 40 years now that the US and its cohorts have been targeting the Islamic Republic, but what has happened in the Islamic Republic in the past 40 years? The Islamic Republic has transformed itself from being a thin sapling to being a strong and thriving tree. Despite the wishes of arrogant powers and the US, the Islamic Republic has managed to attract and win the hearts of Islamic nations so that they listen to its message. It has managed to defeat Americas plots in the region. An example is Syria, another example is Iraq, another example is Lebanon. 
Regional nations tested their resistance against the plots of arrogance. The Iraqi nation stood with courage. The Syrian nation showed its presence in the arena with self-sacrifice. These are signs of Gods power and the truth of divine promises: Oh you who believe, if you help the cause of Allah, He will help you and make firm your step [The Holy Quran, 47: 7]. He both helped us and made our steps firm.
My dear ones, my youth, today you are the guardians of the peoples security. Today, you are the guardians of the land, air and sea borders of our country. You should increase your preparedness as much as you can. You should employ the power of innovation. Todays Army has dramatically changed compared to the army that existed 20, 30 years ago. Today, the Army has made great progress. 
The day when the heavy responsibilities of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army will fall on the shoulders of you todays youth, todays students and todays graduates, you should do something to improve the Army compared to the present time. You should increase the Armys achievements and you can do so: Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah and your enemies [The Holy Quran, 8: 60]. Your preparedness and your display of power will force the enemy into retreat and it will frighten him. This is the Qurans command to us. 
We should increase this preparedness on a daily basis. I completely trust youth. I believe in everything which was mentioned in this arena about the pious youth and their psychological preparedness. I know that you have the power to resist and that you are steadfast. You have the motivation for it and by Allahs favor, you will employ and display this preparedness in various arenas- including in scientific and organizational arenas, in the arena of war and in the arena of making various achievements. 
My dear ones, you should take care not to let the enemys temptations influence the public environment of life. You should take care not to let the enemys infiltration disturb the united lines of pious youth. The enemy is extremely active in all areas- today, he is active in cyberspace and other areas. Of course, his efforts are disappointing. This can be completely understood from their statements, but they are doing their best in any case. 
You should stand firm. You should show your preparedness and power. You should utilize your creativity and motivation in various areas. Allah the Exalted will help you. By Allahs favor, the future of the Army will be a better future with the presence of you pious youth, and the vision of the Iranian nation will be illuminated.
Greetings be upon you and Allahs mercy and blessings
