Iran celebrates anniversary of assault on US Embassy

From the 'more reasons to love Iran department':

TEHRAN, Iran - Thousands of Iranians nationwide demonstrated Sunday to celebrate the 28th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy by militant students Iranian terrorists, 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 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.

That's right-- it's an annual holiday in Iran. Bring out the kids and chant 'Death to America!'

I say we return the favor by having annual anti-Iran celebrations on the same day, November 4. It's high time to start burning Iran's flag (see above).
