The Iranian government is all upset about the way the movie "300" retells history. First off, I'd be willing to bet that 99% of the people watching the movie have no idea that the Persians in the movie are the historical relatives of the Iranians of today. Second, they may try to rewrite history as much as they like, but the truth of the movie is just that, truth. A few very courageous men battle a huge army of invaders and while they all died, their sacrifice saved many lives.
It is a great analogy of today. We have men and women in our armed forces who are bravely sacrificing so much so that we may continue to enjoy the freedoms we have in this country. To bad there are many Dems that are just like the traitor in the movie that would rather see us lose as opposed to a victory that would benefit President Bush and the Repubs.
The movie is definitely very violent and they unfortunately has a couple of sexually explicit scenes, but the courage and loyalty shown by the King and his men should serve as an example of what can be accomplished if we were united as a country against the same enemy faced over 2000 years ago by the Spartans.
