Iranians Celebrate Anniversary of Revolution with Harsh Images of Obama and Kerry

Despite the Iran nuclear deal, Iranians carried banners which read: "Down with U.S.A."

If the Obama administration had hoped the Iran nuclear deal might warm relations with the Islamic Republic, throngs of Iranians who flooded the streets Thursday to celebrate the 37th anniversary of their revolution apparently did not get the message.

Among the signs spotted by photographers were those mocking President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry as long-nosed liars.

Another sign, held up by Iranian school girls, read, “Down with U.S.A.”

Youths also took selfies in front of a long-range ballistic missile put on display in Tehran for the event.

Agence France-Presse reported that one rally featured a dramatization of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s capture of U.S. sailors last month.

Touted domestically as proof of Iran's ability to defend its borders, the sailors were released within 24 hours, just days before the nuclear deal was finalized on January 16.

Iranian state television on Wednesday also broadcast video showing one of the U.S. sailors in tears while being detained by the Iranians.

While those derogatory images blasting the U.S. and its leaders have appeared in many demonstrations in Iran over the years, this was the first anniversary celebrated since the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal.

In rallies that were held around the country, anti-Israel slogans and signs were also spotted.
