Cultural Exchange

Iran is demanding an apology, saying that the movies "The Wrestler" and "300" are insulting to Iranians.

This is the same Iran that produces tons of propaganda depicting the US as the Great Satan, among other things.

Can you guess my feelings on this?

And what do the Germans think about "The Great Escape", "Valkyrie", "Hogan's Heroes" and "They Saved Hitler's Brain"?

Yeah, I saw that article. Methinks some countries need to grow a thicker skin and get over themselves.

Here's the bottom line -- EVERY country takes cheap shots at other countries (I see occassional shots at America in anime). Hell, in China, some provences take shots at each other. And yet, they're the first ones to cry about being depicted unfairly. Hypocrisy is a hill -- we stand on ours, complain about others (old saying, don't remember where I heard it from).
