Khamenei tells military to up ‘preparedness’

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urges the armed forces to increase their “defensive preparedness,” hitting out at a US warning of possible military steps.

Khamenei tells commanders and soldiers in a speech that Iran “will never accept such stupid remarks,” in a jab at General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, though he does not name him.
