During the celebration of the nation's 1979 Islamic Revolution, thousands of Iranian citizens gathered to burn flags and denounce anything American.

"Some inexperienced figures in the region and America are threatening Iran... They should know that the language of threats has never worked with Iran," President Hassan Rouhani told his people.
"America and Trump cannot do a damn thing. We are ready to sacrifice our lives for our leader [Ayatollah Ali Khamenei]," an Iranian man told state television.
