Ixnay on the cray cray

Here's a little something that truly is over the top:

An Argentinian prosecutor says Iran has "the goal of committing, fomenting and fostering acts of international terrorism in concert with its goals of exporting the revolution" in "Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago." Really? Let's start at the top - fomenting an Islamic revolution in Brazil? That's going to be pretty darn tough, because there are a grand total of 27,000 Muslims in Brazil - a whopping 0.01% of the population.
Yeah - Brazil is just seconds away from being the next Iran.
