More from the nutballs in Iran….
A Hollywood film depicting a battle between the Persian empire and a Greek army was denounced by Iran yesterday as “hostile” and an example of “cultural and psychological warfare”.
The film, 300, about the battle of Thermopylae in 480BC, has made about $70 million in America in its first three days of release. It was attacked for its depiction of Persians as ruthless but dumb imperialists, who were repeatedly outsmarted by a smaller “western” force. The Persian king, Xerxes, was shown as effeminate.
