I like to point out inconsistencies...

It's a gift :-) Ok, maybe not... Anyway, I thought this was ironic:

Iran's president and government are apparently quite upset by the portrayal of Persians as immoral and cruel in the movie "300." An AP story states: "State-run television has run several commentaries the past two days calling the film insulting and has brought on Iranian film directors to point out its historical inaccuracies."

Now, while I have no doubt the movie is not entirely historically accurate (what Hollywood film is?), keep in mind, this is the same country where, just a few months ago, the president held a conference dedicated to proving that the Jewish holocaust NEVER HAPPENED. And they're worried about historical inaccuracies in a movie? Wow.
