Iran will Destroy…Google?

The government of Iran is pissed about lots of things. It usually has something to do with the United States or Israel, or occasionally just women’s hair. Who knows what that crazy Guardian Council is up to on a daily basis? Well, it seems that Death to America has been replaced with “Death to Google” over the issue of what to name the “Persian Gulf.”

Yep, you heard it here: The Islamic Republic of Iran is waging war on Google, because they’ve taken out the name “Persian Gulf” from maps.  According to a spokesperson of the Iranians Government, if Google does not immediately put the name “Persian Gulf” back on the map, Google will suffer “serious damages.”
