Sounds like something a moonbat would come up with...

National Day against the Global Arrogance

Rallies marking the National Day against the Global Arrogance have started in various Iranian cities as well as the capital Tehran. Tens of thousands of people from all walks of life and many political persuasions have staged a rally at the site of the former US embassy in Tehran, better known in Iranian history as the 'Den of Spies'.

The ralliers carried placards expressing their hatred of the bullying of arrogant powers, the US in particular. They chanted slogans against the United States and the Zionist regime. They called for trial of US President George W. Bush for his crimes against Iraq and Afghanistan and violation of their national rights. They chanted that he had breached international regulations, including the UN Charter and the Geneva Conventions.

All speakers at the event agreed that Bush's trial would help establish sustainable peace and international justice. The demonstrators also cited the US use of banned weapons and cluster bombs during 2001-2003 as another reason behind their call for a trial of Bush.

Iranians also voiced support for their inalienable right to access peaceful nuclear power.

November 4 marks three important events in Iranian history: the takeover of the former US embassy in Tehran by Muslim students following the Imam's line in 1979 and the exile of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini by the ex-shah in 1964. The declaration of the day as the Students Day, however, is overridingly in remembrance of several students martyred in 1978 while taking part in a protest against the former shah.

Like I said Moonbats, Iranian style.
