Iranians, or Libtards?


Iranian Protesters Celebrate 28th Anniversary Takeover of U.S. Embassy

TEHRAN, Iran —

Thousands of Iranians nationwide demonstrated Sunday to celebrate the 28th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy by militant students, state television reported.

Demonstrators in the capital, Tehran, including elementary school students, gathered outside the former U.S. Embassy, chanting anti-U.S. and anti-Israeli slogans. They burned the two countries' flags and warned Washington to learn from the hostile incident.

The takeover, which occurred during Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution, severely damaged relations between the two countries. The 52 Americans who were held hostage during the crisis were returned after 444 days, but the U.S. cut off diplomatic ties with Iran to protest the incident.

State television showed video footage of the takeover Sunday and images of the Americans who had been held hostage.

Current relations between the two countries continue to be incredibly tense, with the U.S. accusing Iran of covertly developing nuclear weapons and supporting Shiite militias in Iraq — charges Tehran denies.

"The U.S. has designed a triangle of military, cultural and economic threats against the Iranian nation," Mostafa Pourmohammadi, Iran's interior minister, said during Sunday's demonstration, which happens every year on Nov. 4.

The Iranian official dismissed a new set of unilateral sanctions against Iran that Washington announced recently.

"The Americans threaten once and give in ten times because they know that the Iranian nation is greater and more stable than the threats," said Pourmohammadi.

The U.S. is pushing for a new round of U.N. Security Council sanctions to force Iran to suspend uranium enrichment, which can produce fuel for a nuclear reactor or fissile material for a bomb. Two previous sets of U.N. sanctions have failed to persuade Iran to alter its behavior.

Robocop's Comment:

The anniversary they celebrate, WE hold with a grudge. If Americans have any dignity left, they better not forget who we are dealing with. Currently, Iran supplies weapons, AND soldiers that kill our soldiers in Iraq, yet we do nothing. The proof is there. They play a nuclear game, but unlike North Korea, they do it under the pretenses of a false religion which encourages the extermination of non-believers. This negates any reason for them to back down. So lets put away our tie-dyes, head bands, bongo drums, and bullshit, and save it until after our survival is assured.

Unfortunately, do to the general mentality of the American population, I think it will take a nuclear strike on one of our cities to finally flush out our heads. I hope common sense prevails first.
