"1979" British Style

In 1979, the United States experienced the "Iran hostage crisis"; the storming of the American embassy in Tehran.  A terrorist event that occurred in conjunction with the Iranian revolution.

Fast forward to today and we find that Iranian "student" have stormed another nation's embassy - the British embassy in Tehran.  In storming the British embassy, the Iranian "students" could be heard chanting:
The embassy of Britain should be taken over.

When will Iran rejoin the community of civilized nations?  For more on this story, read The New York Times article, "Protesters Storm British Embassy in Tehran."
