The Revolutionary Guards, the elite Iranian regime's army, said Saturday they are committed to the slogan "Death to America," chanted at official ceremonies, just days before the 34th anniversary of the storming of the American Embassy in Tehran.On Monday the regime our President naively believes desires peace will be celebrating the 34th anniversary of the takeover of the American Embassy in Tehran and the holding of our agency personnel as hostages for 444 days.
"The slogan Death to America is the symbol of strength and determination of the Iranian nation against the dominance of the United States, which is an oppressive and untrustworthy nation," said the Revolutionary Guards on their official website.
In recent weeks, a debate was launched in Iran on the merits of continuing to chant "Death to America " during official ceremonies, while some relaxation occurred in relations between Tehran and Washington since the election in June of moderate President Hassan Rohani.
"Telephone espionage by the United States government against the people of other countries are proof that you can not trust the leadership of the White House", the military group said.
Conservative groups have announced that the celebration of the anniversary of the US embassy hostage crisis in Tehran on Nov. 4, 1979, would be more powerful than in previous years, in response to gestures of rapprochement to the West posed by President Rohani.
The "Conquest of the American spy den", as it is known in Iran, was a diplomatic crisis between Iran and the US in which 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days after a group of Iranian students overtook the US Embassy in Tehran. It led to the severance of diplomatic relations between Iran and the United States.
The "Conquest of the American spy den" sounds like the perfect name of holiday for a future friend. Maybe Obama likes the name and that's why his administration is urging the Senate to cool down any discussion of new sanctions.
