Tehran(IP)- The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, on the eve of Sacred Defense Week, in a meeting with a number of veterans and commanders from the 8-year Sacred Defense who defended against the invasion of Iran by Saddam's regime, said: "World’s Arrogant Powers were behind Saddam in his war on Iran, because they were enraged by the Islamic Revolution. The Revolution wasn’t merely a temporary political defeat for the Arrogant Powers. It was a threat to the domineering system of global imperialism". 206
