FILE-- In this Friday, Nov. 2, 2012, file photo, Iranian female demonstrators burn a representation of U.S. flag, and a caricature of President Barack Obama, in an annual state-backed rally in front of the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran, commemorating 33rd anniversary of the embassy takeover by militant students. On Nov. 4, 1979, students who believed the embassy was a center of plots against Iran held 52 Americans hostages for 444 days, and the US severed formal diplomatic ties in response. In a sharp counterpoint to the Western outreach by President Hassan Rouhani’s government, hard-line factions in Iran have amplified their bluster and backlash in messages that they cannot be ignored in any diplomatic moves with Washington either in the nuclear talks or beyond.
