Domestic Terror in Iran
Over 40 people have been arrested on charges of espionage since April, 20 in the southern city of Shiraz. Khomeinist paranoia reached a new peak last week when the authorities announced, through the Islamic Republic News Agency, the capture of four squirrels in the Western city of Kermanshah and claimed that the furry creatures had been fitted with "espionage devices" by the Americans in Iraq and smuggled into the Islamic Republic.
If a movie ever needed to be made, this is it. Heck, make it a trilogy---The Squirrel Identity, The Squirrel Supremacy, The Squirrel Ultimatum. I might direct them myself.
