Thanks for posting the video report and I fear the death toll will rise. My heart goes out to the victims and their families.

That's why nuclear power plants in Iran worry me. I don't care about Israel's howling regarding nuclear bombs Iran apparently isn't even interested in but I think Iran is too earth quake prone to have nuclear reactors there.

Surely other countries will extend helping hands in this time of turmoil and tragedy--at least, I HOPE they will!
We may not always agree politically, but loss of life and human suffering unites us all.
May the souls of the deceased find eternal rest--may those who remain alive find solace as well as reunion with friends and family-members.

Should I feel sorry for Iranians after I made previous comments about the injustice of their government. Naturally as a human being I feel sorry for the victims of the earthquake and I hope they will get help and not get lost in a propaganda machine. As a Christian I believe in a supreme being that juges all of us, I call him GOD. So do other denominations in different names or languages. Our Universal God must be so displeased with us and I don't blame him for punishhing us with natural disasters. Lets not forget the human input of global disasters.

Glad to see that the coward's nasty comment has been removed.
I hope it was deluged with flags.

Every death diminishes us all. RIP.

Žao mi je iskreno,čitam neke komentare i nije mi jasno zbog čega se ovaj narod smatra neprijateljem.Čini se da su mnogi u zabludi obzirom da je amerika ta koja izaziva ratove radi nafte i pljačke.Sami sebi stvarate neprijatelje,zadirući u tuđe teritorije,ne poštujući ništa i nikoga,ne poštujući druge religije i ljudska prava.Pa onda je logično pitanje ko je zaista kome pravi neprijatelj i zbog čega?

I feel very sorry for their loss of life, injuries and trauma. Thank goodness for the IRC and Red Crescent.
Many years ago I met a young Iranian couple at work. They invited me to their home for an authentic dinner - which was fantastic! - and we looked at pictures of their fabulous wedding. They were among the nicest most welcoming people I've ever met.
