Another cultural psychological war piece, just like the "Nuclear Energy War" music.

These cultural capitalists and bullies can just pay to get whatever they want done, isn't it?

And they're so powerful, they don't even mind us US peasants chatting with the Iranian ones, as long as it's on THEIR Internet -- which is certainly true. (Military origins of Internet too -- never otherwise)

it's hard to accept thigns like this, but as my serbian friend said, most american's are probably not capable of making a link between persian and iranian...

In response to loopy, as an American, your comment is just as offensive as you perceive this movie to be. I am intelligent enough to know that anything that comes out of Hollywood is not going to be historically accurate. Education is not the movies purpose, entertainment is.

And I am smart enough to see the difference between a movie and the real persian people. Hopefully you too are wise enough not to make a generalization about Americans. I can promise you we are not all bad. I have respect for all cultures, including yours.

I just watched the movie yesterday.

Well, I must say "persians" weren't pictured nicely at all.
Boy,the persian emperor, Xerxes, looked like a selfmutilating individual and not even a male.
In "One Night with the King," however, "Xerxes" is potrayed in a different way.

Too bad there is no real picture of them available.

I loved the Movie 300. But I also realize that Xerxes was not really like that, or the Persians as a whole are not like that. I am an American and I teach World Geography and I teach my students about different cultures around the world and this movie sparked a discussion in my class about real and fake protrayals in movies. The movie does not make me think ill of any person, or group of people. I know better.

Excuse me but I don't want to spoil the frets here. I think 300 is a great great movie and very much entertaining. And it should be just that, for entertainment purposes. The writers and director of the movie pointed that while they borrowed some points from history, it isn't at all a realistic account of history. Let's just appreciate the movie for its graphic and artful content. And I agree with loopy, most people, not just americans, can't make a connection between a persian and an iranian. I only knew of it when i went to kish island and talk to the locals there. I love the island and the people I was able to talk there. Had a great time in Kish...

Perhaps you all need to look at the state of the art a bit more here.

Terse commentry on a mere film produced purely for an audiences entertainment for it's lack of historifal accuracy from members of a society which actively and openly presues a policy to destroy it's own pre-Islamic persian culture and monuments?

What are you proud off? And what's making you proud about it? When did your nations dignity become synonymous with your nations drive for a self destructive potential?

In 200 years they counted 29 Iranian Wars, in 200 years they counted 12 American.

What balance of redress must we continually wish upon the unborn?
