The "We Cant Agree What to Call It" Games


The Islamic Solidarity Games, due to be held in Iran in April, have been called off because of a dispute with Arab countries over what to call the Gulf.

The games federation in Saudi Arabia said the Iranian organisers had failed to address its concerns, particularly about the planned logo and medals.

These bear the words "Persian Gulf", but Arab countries, who call it the Arabian Gulf, reject the term.
Nothing like a bit of an adult perspective, is there? And this is nothing like an adult perspective.
It was always the Persian Gulf when the Trucial Oman States were were a British protectorate and just sh1tholes of sand and not much more in the '50's/60's. The problem is that when you enable the native you sow a field of trouble.
