Coming to a Theater Near You

COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU….Now this sounds like Academy Award bait, doesn’t it?

The Iranian military says it will soon release a film documenting the arrest, interrogation and statements by UK sailors held in Iran for two weeks.

….The military will release a CD and book about the arrest of the sailors — or, as it calls them, “British aggressors”. The statement came from the culture and propaganda office of the joint chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces.

A CD and a book! I can’t wait. If they were smart, though, they’d auction off the rights to a British tabloid. That oil won’t last forever, after all.
