Sorry, Syrian Ambassador. You Can't Come To The Wedding
Because your country murdered 400 pro-democracy demonstrators.
Ambassadors from Iran, North Korea and Zimbabwe are still invited, though. No reporters have managed to catch these countries murdering 400 citizens... this week.
Seriously, can't Prince William and Kate Middleton simply choose not to host representatives for mass-murdering regimes that hate everything the UK stands for at their wedding?
A representative from Help For Heroes, a charity that helps those who have been wounded in Britain's current conflicts, is invited to the wedding. How does that mesh with inviting the Iranian ambassador, who works for a country that supplies IEDs to the Taliban to kill British and other NATO soldiers?
It is their wedding, right? And if it isn't -- if someone wants to make the case that this is a national event put on by the nation for the nation, there's even more reason to make sure the bouncers keep out the riff-raff.
