Iran marks revolution anniversary with soaring, defiant rhetoric

• Christian Science Monitor
 Iran marked the 34th anniversary of its Islamic revolution today with mass rallies, nuclear defiance, and anti-Western proclamations that it is defeating all "treacherous enemies."

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad rejected Western pressure to negotiate over Iran's nuclear program "at the point of a gun." His words echoed a rejection of bilateral US-Iran talks made last week by Iran's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

"You should remove this gun pointed at the Iranian nation, [then] I myself will negotiate with you," Mr. Ahmadinejad told flag-waving crowds at Azadi (Freedom) Square in Tehran, amid occasional chants of "Death to America! Death to Israel!"
