300 Cretins (Using 300 Spartans and the success of the 300 movie to talk about politics)

"It takes a great deal of courage to stand with only 300 men against 100,000. However, unlike the Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae, the small group of men who goaded President Bush into Iraq did so at no great personal sacrifice. As Bill Bonner explains, it is the common man who will suffer the greatest sacrifice of this War on Terror."

Bizarre use of the 300 movie to discuss politics!

Iran Declares War on Sparta in Light of 300 Movie

"In what foreign policy experts believe to be a direct response to the hit American movie “300,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today declared war on Sparta. Even for the mercurial Ahmadinejad, the move struck many diplomatic insiders as extraordinary, since the consensus in the international community is that the city-state of Sparta no longer exists."

Iranian TV Reviews of 300: Some Comments

"If I were looking to whip up the Persian masses, I think I might've mentioned that the only Persian women shown in the flick are lesbians, that the Persians are shown engaging in decadent, gender-bending orgies and that King Xerxes is portrayed as vain, incompetent, very wierd and ambiguously gay--and I include the word "ambiguously" only because he's not explicitly shown banging any dudes. Think Ra from Stargate--only taller and more gay."
