Iran Will Counter Evil American Best Picture By Making Its Own "Argo"

"Iran is planning to retaliate against Argo with its own big-budget movie, titled Joint Command, about the 1979-80 events and the secret operation that led to the escape of six U.S. diplomatic personnel."
Iran's government-run press agencies are very upset about that Argo movie winning the American Oscar, especially because that one American lady presented the award. It's like Tehran doesn't even know the Obamas are Muslims!

The star of this film will have to live out the rest of his days as "The Persian Ben Affleck".

I can't imagine why the country of Iran, currently being starved by US sanctions, might regard a revisionist pro-CIA movie that depicts Iranians as an angry irrational mob as some kind of insult. And why on earth would they be upset when the spouse of the man who imposes those sanctions presents the award while flanked by Marines?

@mattcornell Right, and all they wanted to do with those diplomats if they had captured them was give them a good, stern talking-to. How revisionist to imply that they were in any danger!
