Iran Claims Antarctica


It has come to light that Iran, via a televised broadcast last September by the country’s naval commander, claims to own Antarctica. That’s right. Owns. Antarctica.

Apparently, the Islamic Republic wants to diversify. Much of the nation is desert-like and brutally hot much of the time. Antarctica, by contrast, is covered in ice and brutally cold virtually the entire year. And yet the nation formerly known as Persia purports to have plans to build a military base at the frozen bottom of the world. Good luck with that, boys.

Do the mullahs think they can hit Israel—or “The Great Satan”— with a missile launched from Antarctica? That’s problematic at best, despite the latest $6 billion the Biden administration gifted them.

Maybe they just have a fondness for penguins.
