Iran says U.S. faces "irreparable defeat" in Middle East

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia will spell an “irreparable defeat” for the United States, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Friday.

“If they (protesters) are able to push this through then what will happen to the U.S. policies in the region will be an irreparable defeat for America,” he told worshippers at Friday prayers in Tehran.
