Celebrating Barbarity

The AP still refuses to pay bloggers who direct traffic to their stories, but once again, the story is worth noting, so I guess I'll just put this on their tab. The Iranians are celebrating their take over of our embassy in 1979, by letting kids out of school to chant, and burn U.S. and Isreali flags.

They continue to justify this act of war by declaring the act the end of U.S. hegemony in the world and an act of defiance. The money quotes:

Today, some of Iran's leaders see Barack Obama as a harbinger of much-wanted change in U.S. policy toward their government. Iranian state radio broadcast a commentary Monday in a positive spin toward the Democrat.

"Obama entered the race under the slogan of change," it said. "The American people expect their government to put aside neo-conservative policy of unilateralism and return to dialogue in their dealings with the international community."

Game. Set. And Match.
