Reuters banned from Iran for blowing the lid off country’s female ninja assassin squad

Remember that post we made about the 3000+ ninja chicks living in Iran? That puff piece of a story resulted in Reuters, one of the largest news agencies in the world, losing it’s press credentials in the country:

The Iranian government has suspended the press accreditation for Reuters staff in Tehran after the publication of a video story on women’s martial arts training which contained an error.

Reuters, the news arm of Thomson Reuters, the global news and information group, corrected the story after the martial arts club where the video was filmed made a complaint.

The story’s headline, “Thousands of female Ninjas train as Iran’s assassins”, was corrected to read “Three thousand women Ninjas train in Iran”.

Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance subsequently contacted the Reuters Tehran bureau chief about the video and its publication, as a result of which Reuters’ 11 personnel were told to hand back their press cards.

To be fair to Iran, there is a tiny bit of difference between Iranian women learning ninjitsu for fun and fitness … and Iranian women training to become ninja assassins. Considering tensions in the Middle East and the warmongering going on, you’d imagine a responsible news agency would think twice about sexing up this kind of headline lest grannies in Tel Aviv start fearing about shuriken attacks in the street.

    i am sympathetic to iran due to the fact that they are a nation of people pretty much counting down the days until they are invaded and thrown into total war. however those chicks don’t look so tough and i guarantee i could submit any of them. also for all their piousness and supposed modesty, i’m pretty sure i could get any of those chicks to date me within 5 minutes of meeting them. it would be a respectful courtship though, not some race to get in their panties. i am not very religious and i don’t exactly enjoy blue balls, but a spiritually principled chick who makes you respect her before you get dem draws is wayy hotter than some undignified floozy who lets you bend her over a dirty bar bathroom sink the first night.

    Iranian women don’t really make you respect them, they just kinda get forced into fucked up things .

    Volds I was thinking a hot ninja assassin would be perfect for you. As long as you can handle some raging Iranian superbush, which I am sure you can. Kinda like a taliban beard…but down there.
