Amid Unease, Iran Marks Anniversary Of Islamic Revolution — L.A. Times

Demonstrators chant slogans condemning the United States and Israel, and speakers vow the nation won’t be swayed by sanctions over its nuclear program.

Reporting from Tehran and Beirut — Iran marked the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution on Saturday with a public display of confidence that stood in sharp contrast to widespread unease about the costs of the country’s confrontation with the West over its nuclear program.

Demonstrators hoisting a national flag more than a mile long chanted slogans condemning the United States and Israel. Speakers vowed that threats and sanctions would not damp the nation’s will.

And President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran would soon unveil unspecified “nuclear achievements.”


My Comment: You can always tell when the Iranian authorities are nervous when they do stupid things like this.
