I wonder if Iran is pondering the question "Is God trying to tell us something?"
Now that is silly.
Does any other nation think that when for example, 4 hurricans hit in one year all right in a row. Also does that nation think the same when last year was a record for tornados. How about mudslides, flooding could go on and on. God isn't doing this.

Don't be ridiculous, everyone knows that the cosmic rays emitting from HAARP refracted through a pocket of swamp gas onto the hollow moon, causing it to ring like a bell which alerted the Reptilians to prime their death ray mounted on Venus which fired but accidently hit a Gray ship which promptly crashed into the ground, deteonating it's Anti-Matter core - casuing the Earthquake..
Sheesh it's not that complicated..
LMFAO!!! That quote right there just made my day.

I'm sitting here wondering, why did this board see so much compassion towards the victims of the Tsunami, and many are making jokes about the Iranians.....I don't understand this. People are people, lives were lost....what makes this disaster so jokeable guys?
SARBAGH, Iran - Under a cold, driving rain, survivors wailed over the bodies of the dead and dug through the ruins of mud-brick houses searching for their loved ones after a powerful earthquake flattened villages in central Iran on Tuesday, killing at least 420 people.
Iran Hunts for Survivors in Deadly Quake
President Bush also expressed his condolences. "The United States stands ready to assist the people of Iran in responding to this tragedy, and we will be in contact with the government of Iran to offer concrete help," a written statement from the White House said.
The Iranian government - which shuns direct contacts with the United States - has so far not asked directly for international help. Still, the Japanese government announced Wednesday that it would send blankets, tents and other aid worth $191,000 to aid quake victims.
"It has been raining and gotten cold there and many houses collapsed," Chief Cabinet Secretary Hiroyuki Hosoda said, hinting Japan may provide additional support. "We would like to monitor the situation and talk further with the Iranian government."
The Iranian Army said a crisis center has been established to assist with relief and that a number of aircraft had been used to fly aid in from Tehran.

This may be the first real indication that US has used a tectonic weapon. I wonder if there is any evidence of an anamolie in the seismologist readings.
