Iranian people have started the 10-Day Dawn celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the country’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, which overthrew the monarchy of the US-backed Pahlavi regime in Iran.

An apparent air of triumph and perspicacity hangs in every corner, especially after hawkish US national security adviser John Bolton said in 2017 that “the Ayatollah Khomeini’s 1979 revolution will not last until its 40th birthday.”
