Hi! DM,

 Thank you for your post! Wow! So they had the advanced info about the potential earthquakes, but did not pass on the info to the residents! What a shame!

I almost forgot to mention that IRI is xenophobic 'cause they don't let "foreigners" help with the rescue operations! I guess IRI is very insecure! They are afraid that Zionists can penetrate the country and sabotage their nuclear facilities! That is my guess!

AhmaghiNejaad dosn't matter, it is prity obvious Syria, and Bashar asad's rejime is more important to him than people of Iran, by the same token, he dose not matter to people of Iran either. He can go where ever he wants to go now, but prity soon, his options are going to be limited, and he will be hunted by our people, and hanged like an animal that he is along with his master "Ali choolagh".

WE ALL witnessed how our "compatriot" LITERALLY AND DELINBERATELY dodged answering your questions and change the subject while veering into an absolutely unrelated topic and turning this into a rather FULLY personal issue. 

More power to former / closeted pahlavi supporters or not, than those who blindly cheer for efforts that don't even exist. 

Some people are just beyond hope.

thank you for all that you are doing and all of your endeavors. you know precisely how to deal with these types. so i won't need to remind you.

It may not matter now, as it may not have mattered back then either, that As it was posted in one of the clips right here, that right after the interview with the dr. boss of the office of crisis managment was over, the host said something about the fact that it had been reported that this particular fault was seen to begin to become active over almost 8 months ago and both Majlis and the admins. were notified but they did not do jack about it.

Like i said , it might not have amounted to much anyway, but still...you could tell and see, what goes on in here. They report on their own incompetence and lack of takingdecisive actions ...yet it all falls on deaf ears and bearded faces!



I so agree with your comment.

(Reuters) - Iran's government faced criticism on Monday over its response to two earthquakes that killed 306 people, with complaints of a lack of tents and about President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's decision to go ahead with an overseas trip.

Although officials announced on Sunday, less than 24 hours after disaster struck, that search and rescue operations had finished and all survivors had been freed from the rubble, some locals expressed disbelief that authorities could have reached the most remote villages so soon.

The moderate conservative newspaper Asr-e Iran reported that a full 24 hours after the earthquake, some villages had not yet been visited by relief teams.

"(Residents) say that most of the villages have been destroyed and still no tents have been sent, nor has any help been sent for the victims," the paper said.


P.S. Prophet Muhammad was a foreigner also, not Iranian! Stop being so xenophobic and arrogant!

Youi seem to know a great deal about internal IRI's operation, would you care to shre with us how do you know so much?, and if you are an IRI muzdoor, whay are you so ashamed of it?

Ahmaghi Nejad is not Iran's elected president, he is Iran's selected president, don't forget that, much like you, he doesn't count.

Even if your comment wasn't addressed to me and you don't talk to foreigners ("specially to foreigners"), what common interests do Iranians and Saudies share ?

Are you not supposed to be eternal enemies ? 

Enlighten me, pls !

Yes, there is..........and it's working, as far as I "do" know.........I usually don't chit chat with other members, specially with foreigners.......but you're an old-timer closet Pahlavist..........so I did it this one time, just for the sake of old times ........Thanks for your interest in our geological (for you and your likes, geopolitical) affairs.......

No reply to any response will be posted..........


I love everyone's comment.

It shows how disgusted we all are with IRI. Had this earthquake hit Hezbollah in Lebonan, you would have seen thousands of rescuer sent there, along with equipments, dogs, doctors, medics and Billions of $. But since it hit Iran, the president is off to S.A. What a joke to call this a government.

FA wrote "If there's a systematic search-and-rescue mission in place, then there's no need for this president to cancel a long-awaited trip abroad......."

Usually if there is a big earthquake, the athority will dig for survivors for at least a week . They use sniffing dogs and infrared heat sensors to look for survivors.

On the contrary, IRI called off the search operation less 24 hours after the 2 earthquakes. Their search is perfunctory at best! It is absolutely shocking! I read in the news that some villages have not been reached by rescuers yet!

Mother nature is so cruel to Iranians and so is IRI regime!

Here is the sobering statistics on earthquakes in Iran:

Damghan earthquake of year 856 killed 200,000 people!

Ardabil earthquake of year 893 killed 150,000 people!

Tabriz earthquake of 1042 killed 40,000 people!

Tabriz earthquake of year 1727 killed 77,000 people!

Kashan earthquake of year 1755 killed 40,000 people!

Manjil-Rudbar earthquake of 1990 killed 40,000 people!

Bam earthquake of 2003 killed 30,000 people!


There is no "systematic" search and rescue mission!!!!!!



I like Ahmadinezhad!

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

He, single handedly has managed to bring the islamist republic to it's knees!

So, Long Live Ahmadinezhad, until he is arrested and tried in Iranian people's Revolutionary  courts after the islamist regime is consigned to the trash can of history....

Complete Disregard for Human Life

As Mahmoud Ghaffari mentioned, the President of a country always rushes to the disaster area and uses his high office to cut through the bureaucracy and get things done. Not the case with the Islamic Republic!

On top of that, because they don't want to expose their incompetence and lack of care to the outside world, they have been rejecting assistance from Turkey, Germany and the International Red Cross.

Instead, their stooges in the west are using the sanctions to once again blame the US and the west for their incompetence.


Good point made by mahmoudghaffari

Asr e iran also has an article about this.

You know why Mahmoud Ghaffari?

by Anonymous Observer on

You know why he's traveling to SA when there's an earthquake to deal with in Iran?  Just listen to his speech for the answer.  He says the conference is about Palestine.  That's all you need to know.  Palestine's interests trump Iran and Iranian Peopole's interests any time of the day for the IR.

Earthquake in Iran and he travels abroad!!!!

by mahmoudghaffari on

It is a custom among the civilized world that when a natural calamity hits the country the leaders postpone and or return from foreign trips to tend to this emergency.  Leave it to an Islamic state and in particular the Islamic morons ruling Iran to travel abroad en masse (President, The Secretary fo State, and a few ministers).  This shows the desperation of the regime goons to want to save their own skin ahead of Syria's.  Little they know Syria's "Asad" is finished to be followed soon by the Islamic Rapists of Iran.
