Ahmadinejad Goes Back to His Roots

Sphere: Related Content

It seems that the Iranian leadership, in a bid to gain support for Hamas, is pulling out that old standby--the embassy break-in:

Iran's official news agency says dozens of hardline students have broken into the British Embassy residence in Tehran.

The IRNA agency says the students accuse Britain of supporting Israel's air assault on the Gaza Strip.

According to the agency, the students stormed the compound Tuesday evening and pulled down the British flag.

IRNA says the students then hoisted a Palestinian flag at compound's entrance before police forced them to leave.

The news agency says the break-in lasted about an hour and that the area is now calm. No injuries were reported.
Nothing like a little intrusion on another nations sovereign territory to gain support for your cause. Royal Marines (or whomever the Brits use for security) would have been within their rights to shoot the intruders on the spot.

It must have felt like reliving the past to old Mahmoud.

In other regional news involving the Mullocracy, the Saudi's, Egyptians and Jordanians seem to have no dog in the Hamas fight while Iranian proxies such as Syria and Hezbollah are pissed at them for not speaking up. Just politics in the Mideast.
