LONDON, September 22 (IranMania) - EU military attaches walked out in protest at a parade in Tehran Thursday after ballistic missiles were rolled past carrying vitriolic anti-US and Israeli slogans, diplomats told AFP.

"There was a common position among the European Union members that, if the military parade included any slogans that attacked our allies, we would leave," said a diplomat.

"The military attaches from the embassies of France, Italy, Greece and Poland were present at the parade, and when they saw the slogans they promptly left," said another diplomat.

At the parade, Iran showed off six of its Shahab-3 medium-range ballistic missiles sporting banners reading "Death to America", "We will crush America under our feet", "Death to Israel" and "Israel must be wiped off the face of the earth".

"They may be just slogans, but for us they are unacceptable," one of the diplomats said.

The military event was held just south of Tehran to mark the start of "Sacred Defence Week", dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of Iranians killed after the forces of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein invaded in It also coincided with mounting tensions between Iran and the EU over Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

"Death to America", "We will crush America under our feet", "Death to Israel" and "Israel must be wiped off the face of the earth".

What???  When did this start???  Is this why people are so up in arms over them having nukes???

This brave act on their part will,most certainly,cause that regime of 9th Century knuckle draggers to collapse.

Thank you,Oh Brave Europe,you've once again guaranteed us "peace in our time".

It is a good thought. We have them surrounded and there is a quaint little body of water to stage our fleet whilst still having bases on flanking sides of their country.

I would think they would be a little antimidated. I can't tell who the better world stage poker players are, America, Europe or Iran. They are betting like their hand is strong but aren't showing much.

Things are looking up if France took a walk.

ALL RIGHT! Way to go, Europeans! Yes, walking out of a parade in protest is certain to persuade the Iranian government to change its ways. Or, if by some unbelievable chance it does not, you could always whip out the big guns. You could threaten to hold your breath until you turn blue.
