    By Al Arabiya with AFP

    Hundreds of thousands of people marched on Sunday in Tehran and other cities chanting “Death to America” as Iran marked the 34th anniversary of the Islamic revolution that ousted the U.S.-backed shah.

    In the capital, crowds waving Iranian flags and portraits of revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini walked toward the landmark Azadi (Freedom) Square, in a government-sponsored rally which is now a cornerstone of the regime.

    Marchers also chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” as they headed for the square, some waving posters of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was expected to make an address.

    Iran is holding similar rallies nationwide, especially in large provincial capitals such as Mashhad, Isfahan, Shiraz and Kerman.

    At the Tehran rally, foreign media were being closely monitored and allowed to cover the event from officially designated areas only.

    Death to America, we already know this Iran, but it won't be because of you.

    PS. Very cool pic.

    This just makes me want to see what those direct talks that Hagel supports would accomplish. We now know that the Iranian position will start with "Death to America", while ours would, I would hope, start with no death to America, at which point, we can find common ground and compromise, like perhaps only agreeing to the death of half of America (which would be pretty much the red states). We could have the Death to Half of America Treaty with Iran ratified and it would guarantee peace in our time.

    After 35 years, you would think they would have a new chant! "Death to America" is so 1979.

    True, but you have to admit their artwork is better.

    Yeah, but it's still rousing when the MSNBC anchors start chanting it.
