"some Europeans bristled at such Western chauvinism, came to the silly conclusion that the movie was a George Bush/Iraq allegory,"
They weren't bristling over that "silly" Western chauvinism....oh say, some 60 years ago. Perhaps if the EuroWeenies go see it their own long-shrunk-up weenies might feel a surge of testosterone.

their gallant last stand ended in the greatest defeat in the history of Greek city-states
Usually VDH makes a great deal of sense. Can't figure this one out.
At the Hot Gates the Greeks lost something less than 2000 men total. How this works out as the greatest defeat in the entire history of Greek city-states is beyond me. The Athenians lost something over 35,000 killed in their ill-starred expedition to Sicily alone, and Athens and other Greek city-states had plenty of other disasters in their history.
