Iranian Female Ninjas







This piece recently appeared on PressTv, Irans english television channel. First, it is worth noting the Iranian flag, mixed with the Japanese "rising sun" imperial flag in the lower right corner. While this is certain to entertain many in the world, I can not help myself thinking of  how the costumes are quite action figure like. A fusion of Chador, and Ninja almost sounds like a perfect fit.  I prefered the tiger striping to the all black. The niqab/ face covering envokes elements many in the West would associate with GIJoe/Action Man. The Daily Mail has more photos of their training here
