Hopefully there are no ancient, mud-brick cities in the vicinity, because those things fall down at the merest hint of an earthquake.

That's not nice, subby. A majority of Iranians don't at all support the regime, and like many aspects of Western culture. It's not entirely their fault that their leadership sucks.

/More importantly, Persian women are hot.
 
2013-04-09 09:37:45 AM
Not everyone in Iran is an extremist asshole.
 
2013-04-09 09:38:26 AM
Well, that's just rude.
 
2013-04-09 09:39:11 AM
Aw, come on Subby - it's Iran, not North Korea.

They might have an industrial infrastructure that's the envy of the mid-20th century, but it's still an industrial infrastructure.

And the poor sots are packed nose-to-tail in Tehran, which makes it a very attractive target for the spaceborne earthquake ray we used to fly around on the space shut-.... huh, must be mounted on the ISS now.

Better go fill up with gas. Going to increase 50 cents.

I agree with all of this and also all the Iranian people I've met have been wonderful, friendly and insanely smart people. Sometimes people's worldviews are terrible because they are just ignorant.
 
2013-04-09 09:41:13 AM
Hey libbo subby, have you forgotten about all of that precious, precious crude oil infrastructure.  Typical libs.  Hating oil.
 
2013-04-09 09:41:22 AM
Most Iranian people aren't bad.

If their leaders fell into a bottomless pit though...I'd be ok with that.

Shat my pants... pretty much.
In the office in Doha, Qatar - conveniently located on the opposite side of the arabian gulf..
everything starts to shake - we immediately evacuate the building [i work in an oil company, so we take evacuations pretty seriously, even when they are drills]
can't go back to fetch car keys, wallet, phone - the building needs to be assessed for damages.
and then, the security guards tell us to vacate the area [straight on the sea, lovely view] and to reach a high point as soon as possible due to a potential Tzunami alert..
it sucks people - managed to get home now, thank goodness one of the few 'higher points' in a completely deserted and flat land, and I am pretty shook up.
i hope everyone in Qatar is safe...
 
2013-04-09 09:42:40 AM
That was a pretty trollific headline...
 
2013-04-09 09:43:18 AM
That's right subby, Iran is nothing but suicide bombers. There's no way it could be full of millions of people who just happened to born there and simply wish to live their lives.
 
2013-04-09 09:43:44 AM
Headline isn't even funny. If you're going to be offensive, be funny at least.

I wonder if Bandar Bushehr is the same Bushehr that one of Iran's nuclear reactors is at.
 
2013-04-09 09:53:50 AM
I don't really like religious fundamentalists either, but 1. not everyone in Iran is a fundamentalist and b. even if they were, it would be wrong to celebrate such a disaster happening to them.

Who wants to bet Israel has a secret fracking facility in Iran?

No?

But how long till Iran makes that claim?

Man, I worked for a chemical company and we also took evacuations very seriously.

Which is why my car keys and wallet were always on my person. Didn't have one of those cell phone thingies back in the day.

The Iranian people, as opposed to the Iranian government are some of the most cosmopolitan, moderate, well-educated, and Pro-western people living in the Middle East. That the Iranian government does not match the Iranian people is largely OUR (by which I mean the US' fault)In the early 1950's Iran had a democratic government headed by Mohammad Mosaddegha western-educated (Paris, Switzerland) lawyer and university professor, who was bent on reforming his nation and bringing into the 21st century as a modern democracy after throwing off the autocratic rule of a British puppet-shah after WWII.. However he committed the unpardonable sin of wanting to reform the ridiculously unfair contracts the British oil company, Anglo-Iranian Oil, had literally forced the previous government to sign at gunpoint. Since Britain's post war recovery was relying on that cheap oil, Churchill convinced Truman to send in the CIA (In the form of Teddy Roosevelt's grandkid Kermit) to overthrow the professor, and re-install a barely literate Horse groomer who was technically next in line as the new Shah. With the US's open support the Shah ruled as a dictator for the next twenty years keeping the population in line with a brutal secret police unit. The SAVAK was particularly brutal in suppressing the Shi'ite clerics as they represented a potential rival power base to the Shah's rule. As a result the Shi'ite leaders radicalized and became militant, and thus formed the backbone of the revolution that ousted the Shah, which allowed them to seize power and install a theocracy (this sounding just a bit familiar? Like what's happening right now in Egypt?). So, subby be as annoyed at the Iranian government as you like, but don't close your eyes to the fact that it only exists because of the US playing "the game of thrones

So, you mean no oil wells, pipelines, or storage facilities were damaged? Super! That way we'll have less to repair when we invade Iran. For oil. No, wait, democracy. No, wait, democracy and oil.

It is.  Epicenter was about 55 miles from the reactor site.

Bitter headline? Yes - but we all know 'merikuh will get blamed & hate-protested for this earthquake in the Iranian streets.
 
2013-04-09 10:05:29 AM
If subby were a televangelist he would have seen a spike in his donations. But because this is FARK... DIAF?
 
2013-04-09 10:06:12 AM
F*ck you, subby.

First thought.

Giltric: Zionists Tectonic Weapon.


...would be a great name for a Jewish Drum N Bass DJ/punk band/hip hop group was my second thought.

Klippoklondike: If their leaders fell into a bottomless pit though...I'd be ok with that.


Most Iranians would be perfectly happy with that, too.

Fun fact: Iran is one of the more atheist countries in the world (currently ranking at #10 on the Atheist Census, which is a bit of a self-selecting sample), and definitely one of the most in the Middle East (Turkey being the most secular in the region).

I heard they like question marks too.

2013-04-09 10:10:37 AM
Really admins? There are several towns in the area that aren't designed to withstand earthquakes of that magnitude(Insert Star Wars joke here).  Are you saying that the lives of average Iranians, most of whom want a change in government, are worthless?

Half Right: /More importantly, Persian women are hot.


Well, at least SOMEBODY has their priorities straight!
