Iran Wants to Sue Google

I've Been Thinking:
Yesterday Iran threatened to sue Google.
From the Iranian point of view, the suit has great merit and touches upon a critical issue. It involves Iran's identity and her pride.
It is about her history and about her name.
In their Google Maps section, Google has renamed the peninsula that had once been called the Persian Gulf and Peninsula. They are now calling it the Arabian Gulf and Peninsula.
This battle over names has been an ongoing and fierce fight in the region. It was the cause the cancelation of the Pan Islamic games.
But that is, to their chagrin, all the recourse available to the Iranians.
