Iranian Gossip Engine: Isfahan is nuked People ordered to leave

It is funny how most of us in who I guess are educated react to gossip and really crappy articles. I was reading "Isfahan  residents told to leave the city" and thought damn this is horrible. Then I looked the sources mentioned in the article and looked there (BBC for one) and nothing was mentioned there. If this was real news it would have been the top news world wide.


So I wrote in the comments that "please remove this crap", since it is a crap since it upsets people and Isfahanis even more. The thing that the writer did was to ban me and remove my comment and write a comment that "Fars news has rejected this claim", a statement made by Fars news usually means the opposite so I guess nobody reading that comment thought more about it.


Now the page has been "Tooped" by several people and many are cursing and are upset in that forum. I guess the writer was after getting many "Toops" and do not care about peoples feelings.


Another thing is that almost none of the commentators has tried to check if the news is accurate. It goes to show that we are easy beleivers and do not need good journalistic to accept anything for truth, even us outside Iran in an open society with free access to a powerful tool like Internet.

If there was a nuclear accident, the radioactive fallout could easily be measured remotely from nearly anywhere on the planet that has the technology do so as Fukushima proved recently. The only reason such a story would appear here and be tooped is for purely black propaganda purposes perpetrated by the usual culprits on behalf of the usual people.



IRI lies, but Geiger counter does not!



It does not hurt to have a geiger counter handy!



Does anyone really believe that if there was an actual nuclear leak, the clerical fascists will actually report it to save Iranain people lives?? Since when the IRI has cared about the welfare and safety of its citizens?

You are very cynical, I bet there is at least 1% of people there who would tell. But the point here is not that, it is how we accept things easily.

Looking at it objectively, the story may or may not be true. It was reported by a reputable news organization and the person who posted it here simply posted the news. I read it, and went to the source, read that, and left it there. I can't tell whether it's credible or not.

That being said, in my opinion, given the dictatorial, deceitful and totalitarian nature of the Islamic Republic, I wouldn't put in beyond them to not tell the population (for various obvious reasons) if there was an actual leak from the nuclear facility. Human lives---especially IRANIAN lives are totally meaningless and without value to the IR. So, the deaths or injuries that may result from a nuclear leak in a major city in Iran is of no concern to the IR.

The news war reported by BBC; not that the BBC is always right.

This blog is worthless and speaks volume of the author's agenda. The only authentic newsorganization for supporters of the clerical fascist regime is Presstv and Kayahn.

That was posted under NEWS section not blog. Which gives it more credibility !

Here is an example !

I am an Esfahani reader
I come to the
I am in no mood to read anyone's blogs and blah blahs ...
I check the latest news ( last 24 hours)
The most one should appear on top based on the TOOP bazi business
so I read it
Oh my khoda .... ( in esfahan we say Khoda )
Why no one told me ?
I hate my life
not even my family loves me
Where is everybody?
I better run
then while i am running and screaming and warning
My bulb lights up ! Oh Shoot !... it is the ...

I do not think so it should be deleted it should be transfered to the upcoming new option on this site also known as " the Onion"
Perhaps, we can set up an onion news option while submitting certain things .... admin please note ! that option is good !

now on a more serious note !
Article suggests actually that the place has been a target and on 2011 (quote and quote) an unexplained explosion caused a damage .. So this place is already under warning ! in future that may happen ...

Perhaps this comes from secret Gardeners ( the unexplained ones ) they just went public too early ! " Be patient , next Time , it'll happen , " says BiBI ...

thanks for the blog ....

Rumor or not, remember that more than half of the news you get from major networks is either fabricated or a very twisted, embellished form of the truth. The Esfahan leak may indeed have happened, or it may not have. As a piece of news, it is not much different from other linked articles we get on this site.
