When Old Is Again New

It has been 34 years since the fall of the US Embassy in Tehran.  While that is an event that many of us have placed in the dustbins of history, we received a reminder of the event as “tens of thousands” of protesters sought out the site of the former embassy and staged a reminder march.

Protesters waved anti-US banners, chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel”, while burning US and Israeli flags. Effigies of the US president, Barack Obama, his secretary of state John Kerry and the Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, could be seen held aloft by protesters.

I don’t know that we have ever seen Obama burned in effigy before.  I guess that all of the submissive posturing he has done hasn’t been all that effective.
