New ‘Death to America” Songs Unveiled in Iran

American-Flag-WEBTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Hard-liners in Iran have unveiled two new “Death to America” songs at the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran, hoping to keep anger high ahead of nuclear talks with Western powers.

They performed the songs Saturday ahead of a planned massive protest Monday to mark the anniversary of the U.S. Embassy takeover in 1979.

The anniversary this year is drawing greater attention due to hard-line opposition to moderate President Hassan Rouhani’s outreach to the West as talks over the country’s contested nuclear program continue. Hard-liners also criticized Rouhani’s historic telephone conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama in September, a gesture aimed at ending three decades of estrangement between the two countries.

Authorities pulled down dozens of anti-U.S. banners and posters around Tehran last week.

    I agree with Victor N. Why is this in the news? Same with those North Korean idiots. IGNORE the chest pounding, and they’ll stop bothering us. Give them press like this, and you empower them.

    So where can I DL a copy? Pirate it preferred, because unlike other artists I’m not to worried about these guys pockets and how much money they are losing by me stealing it LOL.

    Berto Diaz hit the nail on the head. People like this that live in the sand, scratch fleas at night, have lice as part of life, live in a tent in a crappy, hot, dry desert where life is hell. We live like kings here in comparison, so they hate us. It is simply the “have plenty” being hated by the “have nots”. When your life sukks that badly, it effects your outlook of life, and you place little value on it. That’s why they don’t care if they blow themselves up, and are so miserable they want to take as many of the “have plenty” people as they can. Reminds me of the cartoon I saw. It was “Suicide Bombing School” and the instructor is standing there with a bomb strapped to his body and the trigger in his hand. He says to the class “OK watch carefully, I’m only going to do this once…”.

    People need to chill out. They’ve been doing this for years over there and it’s all part of the government’s way to stir up negative feelings towards us.

    Not only do we have the strongest armed forces, we have military bases in countries all over the world. What the Iranians are really afraid of is our diverse American culture seeping into their Mosques and homes. American movies are shown all over the world and you can get a Big Mac almost anywhere.

    If anyone is offended by this, TS. Remember we had a song about the Ayatohllah mocking him when he was the “supreme leader” of Iran. So grow up. We did, they can do it.
