Iran Ignores Earthquake Tragedy

The Iranian government has been accused of ignoring the devastating earthquake that killed 300 of its people over the weekend. Press TV, Iran’s state television channel, failed to mention the disaster while bonkers President Mahmoud Ahmadienjad and supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei took over a day to issue a response. Guido has taken a look at Press TV‘s website and has yet to find anything on the tragedy. There was, however, a story about how the Olympics have apparently been infiltrated by Zionists:

Talk about priorities…


  1. 1
    Ed Miliband says:

    I demand a judge led inquiry into this.

  2. 2
    President Mahmoud Ahmadienjad says:

    I want to see earthquakes wiped of the map!

  3. 3
    Ed Millibland says:

    I demand an Imam led enquiry

  4. 4
    president i m a dinner jacket says:

    now all i need is a decent kammerband .

  5. 5
    The Public says:

    Ah, the Olympic logo does like Lisa Simpson giving head

  6. 6
    Harridan Harmanhater says:

    A judge led inquiry too into the omni-shambles, Tory led Olympics.

    Armadinabin says:

    Fuck you!

    The Guardian loves me, so fucketty do to you.

    Armoured Dinerjacket says:

    So What?

  11. 11
    Lloyds of London spokesperson says:

    We can confirm a 6.3 magnitude earthquake occurred in northern Iran, our assessors have estimated a total damage liability of £4.25.

  12. 12
    Targeted assassination is necessary says:

    All jokes aside, Ahmadinejad is a barking mad warmonger who genuinely believes he’s on a god given mission to bring about the third world war. Most people in Iran hate him but can’t do anything about it. They live under tyranny. Things had become relatively moderate under Khatami in the 90s but this c-unt has taken the country back by hundreds of years. He poses such a serious threat to the future of the country, and the region as a whole, he really does need to be done away with.

  13. 13
    Fact says:

    It’s where Argentinians practice for the next World Cup.

  14. 14
    George Galloway and Yvonne Ridley says:

    We get paid by Press TV, so our job is to lick the anus of the Iranian regime and ignore all its human rights abuses, whilst making treasonous statements about the UK.

  15. 15
    Ken Livingstone says:

    I agree! where is my cheque?

  16. 16
    Fact says:

    and the Iranians are gutless and don’t bother their arses to do anything about it!

    I suppose you’d prefer the more normal response of governments. Some fat bloated El Presidente diverting resources from the rescue efforts by using the disaster scene as a photo-op.

    Another pearl of wisdom from an armchair military expert says:

    A bit difficult when the government has the entire military, police and secret service at their disposal killing anyone who dissents, as per the uprising a few years ago.

    I suppose in hindsight, that really was the time to call an election.

  28. 28
    What a fucking suprise says:

    A disciplinary panel says the pathologist who conducted the first post-mortem examination on Ian Tomlinson is “dishonest” and “liable to bring his profession into disrepute”.

    Dr Freddy Patel said Mr Tomlinson, who was pushed to the ground by a policeman at the G20 protests in London in 2009, had died of coronary artery disease.

    A Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel found this was wrong. The panel also found that his conduct was “misleading”.

    In total, 68 failings were identified by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Dr Patel’s work on the case of Mr Tomlinson. The panel will now determine if his “fitness to practise” was “impaired by reason of misconduct and/or deficient professional performance” and if he should be allowed to continue as a pathologist.

    Some of the heavy equipment Madman I’m A Dinner Jacket could have been using to help in the rescue and recovery efforts was, alas, being otherwise employed:

    Another pearl of wisdom from an armchair military expert says:

    Maybe if the US government hadn’t deposed the moderate and democratically elected Mossadeq government and installed the Shah as royal dictator with oil policies favourable to the US, Iran wouldn’t be in the mess it is now. There’d have been no Shah, no revolution, no Khomeini, no mad mullahs in charge of the country. But the US and its pesky interests meant democracy had to make way.

    Is it possible to have an investigation which concludes that the jury in the subsequent criminal case were “dishonest” and “likely to bring the jury system into disrepute”?

  47. 47
    Down with the mullahs says:

    There’s no point – nobody gave them any money last time they had an earthquake. The west loathe them because they’re oppressive, bellicose, organise terrorism and want to get nuclear weapons while 90% of Muslims hate them because they are shia. Besides most Muslims can’ distinguish between charity from unbelievers and proselytisation (that’s the only reason they ever make their minimal contributions to aid for infidels such as the Haitians) although many of them can rationalise it into being some sort of jizya. Also, if hey publicise the problem among their own people they might face calls for an agreement that ends sanctions and stops money being spent on a nuclear insurance against western regime-changers.

    The Paragnostic says:


    What good would reporting the earthquakes do, anyway? Will it lead to a better response from the emergency services? Will it stop further earthquakes?

    OK – if it happened over here, it would be news, but Iran is very earthquake prone, and the events of the weekend were pretty minor compared to some of the quakes they have had in the past.

    Maybe Iranians are less prurient in their choice of news than we are?

    Oh, and the Olympics weren’t Z***ist – they even refused to acknowledge the events of 1972 officially. Which I think is a good thing, but most of Finchley might disagree.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
