Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad shouldn't get so incensed about "300"... doesn't he realize that 95% of Americans don't even know that Iranians are Persian?
Ahmadinejad also appeared to hit out at a Hollywood blockbuster called "300" that depicts a 480 B.C. battle between Greeks and Persians. Iranian officials and the public see the film as a Western attempt to vilify Iran's image.
"Today they are trying to tamper with history by making a film and by making Iran's image look savage," he said.
He's vastly overestimating the historical knowledge of movie-going Americans. Plus, y'know, this battle happened almost 2500 years ago.
