Happy anniversary! The charming festivities featured chants of "Death to America" and "Death to Israel," as young Iranians whom Western analysts fondly assume will soon overthrow the mullahcracy celebrated the criminal act that was one of the earliest salvos in this latest round of the ongoing jihad. From AFP (thanks to JE):
Thousands of young Iranians proclaimed "Death to America" yesterday as they celebrated the 28th anniversary of the storming of the US embassy in Tehran by student radicals.
A massive crowd, composed mainly of schoolchildren bussed in to central Tehran, gathered outside the site of the former US embassy, known locally as the "Den of Spies".
"Death to America, death to Israel," the young people shouted, wearing bibs that depicted the burning of the US and Israeli flags.
