Argo Fallout: Iran Is Exploring A Lawsuit!

argo ben affleck iran lawsuit ridiculous movie film

Really?? Really, Iran??

Argo's just a movie!

Everyone knows that movies stretch and distort the truth — like, we all know that the Canadians' roles in the film were under-represented, even though they had a whole lot more to do with the whole real plan than what was said! We don't see them calling up their lawyers! LOLz!

Regardless of that, the events actually happened! Americans WERE captured in 1979, and there WAS a rescue mission!

Yet, French lawyer Isabelle Coutant-Peyre is in the country anyway, discussing with officials how they might go about filing the lawsuit. Of course, they'd probably never use her — she has a dark past for being the lawyer for infamous Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, aka Carlos the Jackal — and we're willing to bet they don't want to be seen alongside former clients like that.

But they ARE looking into legal action, and have even privately screened the movie for a group of Iranian cultural officials and movie critics!

We wonder what will come first, though: the lawsuit, or Iran's own film version of the events called The General Staff!

Also, do U think they'll cast Ben Affleck?

Ha!

    the movie also suggests New Zealand diplomats turned away American diplomats who escaped from the US embassy hostage crisis in 1979 when, in fact, they helped them to get out of Tehran.

    The Iranians have every right to want to sue. The US film directors had no right to distort history like that, especially because they used it to distort the American's beliefs about Iran. I hope they do sue.

    The average American does not know where Canada is and they truly believe the USA is the center of the universe. "Talking to Americans" with Rick Mercer proved how ignorant they are. It was the funniest parody but because Americans are cry babies and cannot take a joke, it was pulled from the air. Check it out on You Tube.

    P.S. I did not waste my time seeing Argo as I knew it would be an American slant on their heroics. So monotonous.

    Although the issue of the fighting in Iran appears in headlines less ans less every day, many people are still injured and hurt. The Arab Spring, wreaking havoc across many countries at the middle East. There are many positive changes, however, in many cases the changes are made at the expense of the innocent. YouTube is flooded with videos depicting the horrors that occur every day in Syria, Iran, Libya, Egypt and so on.
    It is important to remember that this is not isolated cases and anonymous. There are thousands of casualties every day and severe damage to human rights.
    Please take a moment and watch the sad story of Saeed Abedini:
