Yet another example of how relations with Iran have improved under Obama

Keep sucking up to Ahmadinejad and Khameini, Barack. Maybe one day they'll accept you as one of their own.
Thousands of Iranians chanting "Death to America" burnt US flags on Friday to mark the 33rd anniversary of the seizure of the US embassy in Tehran, just days before the American presidential election.
The demonstrators also chanted anti-British and anti-Israeli slogans, and burnt Israeli flags, in front of the site of the former embassy, dubbed the "den of spies" by the authorities who sponsor the annual commemoration, an AFP photographer reported.
This year's rally came just days before Tuesday's US presidential election in which Republican challenger Mitt Romney has made Iran's controversial nuclear programme a top foreign policy issue.
"The greatest threat the world faces is a nuclear Iran," Romney said in a campaign debate with Democratic incumbent Barack Obama.


Speaking at Friday's rally, the commander of Iran's volunteer Islamist Basij militia, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, said the Islamic republic will face the sanctions head on.
"The Iranian nation has chosen its path and will overcome the sanctions by adopting the 'economy of resistance'," he said, referring to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's policy of confronting the punitive measures.
