Today in odd international news

leave a comment »

Here’s a compilation of today’s international news stories which I thought particularly odd:

Item 1:  Iran accused Argentina of a “zionist plot” because of comments made by Argentina’s foreign ministry regarding the appointment of Ahmad Vahidi as Iran’s defense minister.  Vahidi is wanted by Interpol for his apparent involvement in a terrorist attack on a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.  Which means Argentina’s complaints about Vahidi being in charge of Iran’s military is solely rooted in a zionist conspiracy.  Seriously?

Item 2: The New York Post reports (obviously very credible) that Libyan president Muammar Khadafy (funny I always thought it was Gaddafi) will be camping out in a New Jersey suburb while in The States for an upcoming UN General Assembly meeting.

Item 3: Man outruns hungry hungry hippo in Uganda.
