State Goons Smash Up British Embassy In Iran: Make Off With Pulp Fiction Movie Poster
PROTESTORS loyal to the Ahmadinejad regime have broken into the British Embassy in Tehran, tossed rocks and Molotov cocktails, pulled own the flag, and run out holding a…poster of John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in the movie Pulp Fiction.
Is British ambassador, Dominick John Chilcott, a fan? Or was he just covering up a stain on the wall or – gulp! – a picture of 1980s pop duo Dollar?
The Foreign Office says:
We are outraged by this. It is utterly unacceptable and we condemn it. Under international law, including the Vienna Convention, the Iranian government have a clear duty to protect diplomats and embassies in their country and expect them to act urgently to bring the situation under control and ensure the safety of our staff and security of our property.
The trigger for the aggro seems to have been new British sanctions on Iranian banks linked to Iran’s nuclear development.
If that’s what the locals have to put on their walls, it’s small wonder they’re so keen on the Pulp Fiction poster. Even Dollar is better…
