Iran Olympics Boycott?

There are some rumours floating around Twitter that Iran is considering boycotting the London 2012 Olympics, as retribution for the recently announced sanctions and worsening relations.

It is not clear as to whether this particular rumour is true or not. However, the talk about Iran possibly boycotting the games is not new.

In February this year the Iranians were making nosies about boycotting the games because of their dislike of the Olympics logo:

"The National Olympic Committee of Iran has sent a letter to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) complaining about the logo of 2012 London Olympic Games.

For why?

Apparently, the logo says "Zion"???!!

In other words, the threat of an Iranian boycott is nothing more than "business as usual".
