I can see why the Iranians are pissed. According to the History Channel, it wasn't just 300 Spartans defending the pass during the last battle. One other Greek City-State had 1,000 troops that also stayed, so in reality, it was 1,300 Greeks defending the pass against 500,000 Persians. Much worse odds.
