I predict there will be a Persian Empire within the next 100 years while the Zionist Empire will collapse!

For seeing a day that you can get a PhD and get paid big by tax payers money for storytelling...

Greeks back then are as credible as their today's crumbling economy. Looking at Ancient Greek statues and their hollusinistic view on world which does not represent the slightest resemblance of those people and the reality of world, you can get the idea of how true their side of story is?

however the screenwriter of this story has major flaws, where he accounts for the exact number of Persian deads but not for a few weeks day trip of the royal messenger on the royal highway to dispatch supply so the persians don't have to dispatch the entire army back to capital...

However I buy this storytellers side on the fact that Greece was too insignificant to be considered for invasion and Greeks were too ambitious not to meddle with the giant. 

In Persian culture there is always a reason for doing or not doing things. They were too different and humble to blow into their own horn for publicity.

the evidence is the Persian rug that radiates beauty while this guy is walking all over it...
