    US and Iranian interests have been increasingly aligned lately despite mutual feelings of distrust and distaste. I'm sure Khomeini would like to be able to work with the "Great Satan" to solve some of his problems, and the US would benefit from having policy options on both sides of the Sunni/Shia power struggle beyond support for one side and hostility towards the other.
    Khomeini has been dead for decades

    So, is he saying he is against the deal he signed with the US politicians?

    Khamenei says the “aim of the slogan is not death to American people. The slogan means death to U.S. policies and arrogance.” He says the slogan has “strong support” in Iran.
