Iranians: ‘We Are Eager for U.S. Military Option’ -- Iran holds ‘Death to America Grand Prix ceremony’ -- By Adam Kredo, The Washington Free Beacon

APScores of Iranian citizens took to the streets across the country on Tuesday to declare that they are “ready for the great battle” against the United States, according to multiple regional reports.

Millions of Iranians reportedly rallied in Tehran and other cities to mark the 35th anniversary of Iran’s Islamic revolution.

Citizens chanted anti-American and anti-Israel slogans while carrying banners that read, “We are ready for the great battle” and “We are eager for the U.S. military option,” according to Iran’s state-run Fars News Agency.

Others were said to be lofting signs that “mocked the U.S. military threats against the country” and some that stated Iranians are “ready for confrontation against the U.S.”

The rally capped a weeklong series of confrontational military threats against the United States by top Iranian military leaders. Iran is also sailing a fleet of warships towards the Atlantic Ocean in response to the U.S. naval presence in the Persian Gulf.

The Obama administration has insisted in recent weeks that despite negotiations, the military option against Iran is still on the table. These comments prompted backlash from Iranian military leaders, who issued a series of confrontational statements threatening to attack the United States.

The threats have been accompanied by the recent test firing of two new ballistic missiles. Iran said the tests are meant to serve as a warning sign to the United States.
