i finally saw 300... i'm one to always criticize petitions and say stop acting like victims... but this one was just way too ironic and hit too close to home and it even pissed me off... the timing and the current parallels that are implied are just too much for the movie to be coincidental... all through the movie i was thinking of this one poem my friend has written about iranians vs. persians and how the word iranian is associated with negative things such as terrorism and the axis of evil and persian is associated with rugs and cats and romanticism... well here we go... there goes the word persian for us too... now our widely glorified history is associated with ghoulish evil monsters led by an over sized power crazy god! it dawned on me why i always hated history... it's too open to interpretation!!!
