Ahmadinejad Flies Into Snit Over "300"

From Entertainment Weekly:
Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has spoken out against the hit movie 300, joining the chorus of Iranian critics who claim that the Warner Bros. movie unfairly portrays the country's history. Though he didn't name the movie by name, in a speech delivered on Wednesday (March 21), Ahmadinejad said Western countries are ''trying to tamper with history by making a film and by making Iran's image look savage.''
Silly Mahmoud, it's not "300" that makes your country look savage. It's kidnapping diplomats. And denying the Holocaust. And trying to develop nuclear weapons for jihad. And threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. And supporting brave jihadi babyhunters...

Btw, "300" went over the $100 million mark last Friday.
