Reactor reaction

The BBC reports on `spontaneous Iranian demonstrations':

Thousands of school children and students in Tehran have marked the anniversary of the hostage-taking at the American embassy in 1979.

The speaker of the Iranian parliament compared the event to the current nuclear row, saying America always wanted to put Iran under pressure...

A huge red flag saying "Death to America" was burned...

Addressing the crowd, the speaker of the Iranian parliament, Gholam Ali Hadad-Adel, warned America that Iranians were ready to react to any attempt to limit their access to nuclear power.

He said Iran was willing to pay the price of its independence once again...

with a new more conservative government in power - there is little sign of remorse.

Instead the speakers asked why America had not learned its lesson from the hostage-taking.

One has to admire the bare-faced cheek. I thought it was the American hostages who paid the price.

Perhaps America should learn its lesson: Iran is a terrorist state. Now that is dangerous!
