>> Outside what was ones the US embassy in Tehran, Iranians shouted death to America and set fire to the stars and stripes on Sunday. Such chants may not be rare here, especially on this day, the anniversary of the 1979 seizure of the US embassy. But this year, there's added vitriol.
And that's because on Monday, the US will reimpose sanctions targeting Iran's key oil sector. In Tehran on Sunday, the head of Iran's powerful, revolutionary guards described that as economic and psychological warfare.>>

Trump's decisions made to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions is designed to force Tehran to halt its nuclear and ballistic missile programs outright. As well as its support for proxy forces in conflicts across the Middle East. On Friday, the White House said it would temporarily allow eight jurisdictions to keep importing Iranian oil.
And continuing animosity between Washington and Tehran has a lot to do with what happened here 29 years ago. Hardline students stormed the US Embassy on November the 4th, 1979, soon after the fall of the US backed Shah. 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days. And the two countries have been enemies ever since.
