I saw the picture of the two little boys being carried by their father to the cemetery. Such a scene is pure anguish.

I hope that all is as well there as can be expected. Please let us know how we can help send aid, and what aid, if any, is needed.

How do most Iranians think about the American infidels?

Will you and your family be ok?

If we send help (food, money, etc.), will it really end up helping the victims of the earthquake? Or will the government simply take it and do whatever it likes with it?

Ping!

Thanks Khashayar

What percentage of Iranian's want America to take out the Mullah's in order to gain social and religious freedoms that western cultures have?

That just made me feel warm inside. First post to a FReeper thread such as this reading, "Are you and your family safe?"

FReepers are the best!

Only God can help the dead. What can we do to help the survivors?

In the longer term, how can we help Iranians who want freedom -- without putting them in danger?

I feel incredible sadness and compassion for the Iranian people. I can only imagine what it is like to be there right now. I would open my heart and my pocketbook if I could be certain that the help would get to the people. My heart is open, my pocketbook is hesitant.

I do know that the Iranian people are freedom loving and oppressed by an evil regime.

Do you know if they are looking at villages that are on the same fault line, outside of Bam? Are they all right?

Millions of Americans are hoping and praying for the Iranian peoples' freedom. Thank you for offering to answer some of our many questions.

I wonder if this earthquake will help the forces of freedom in Iran. The Chernobyl disaster and how it was handled made many Russians question the Soviet leadership. That was the beginning of the end for the Soviet Union. Do you believe that the earthquake in Bam could possibly destabilize the Iranian government? Could the mullahs' poor preparation and clumsy handling of the situation make most Iranians turn against them?

Bump to that. ....But the threadmeister seems to be offering to answer any and all questions about Iran, not about its recent disaster.

Thank you for the reply, I should have been more sensitive to the disaster at hand, please excuse my rudeness.

My prayers go out to you, and all affected by the disaster in Bam.

I have a friend who is Iranian American or American Iranian if you prefer, whose father fled Iran right after the Shah was overthrown. His father almost didn't make it out of Iran. I am happy he did because if he didn't, I wouldn't have my friend.

I know that is irrelevant to the conversation but cool none the less.

Good. Those SOB's are on their last legs. My greatest concern is if they attempt take the whole region down with them when the go (by using WMD). Hopefully we can pre-empt such a plan.

The "good" people of Iran are in my heart and prayers.
I am sorry for what has happened to the people of Iran.

I am wondering what is being reported in your country. Is word getting out to all the people in Iran that the World is coming to your aid, during this difficult time?

Is the Iran government controlling the foreign aid workers who are now there? are they letting them freely roam so that they can help the people of Bam by letting them go to Bam and work from there or is the government bringing the injured to them at an assigned guarded area, because the government is worried to let the foreign aid workers roam freely?

The State-Run Media told people that the US won't send any aid and the US gov't prevented Iranian-Americans from helping. No one believe the Mullahs any more.

I hope you and yours are well. I have some actual questions. Is anyone - any group or organization - doing a particularly good job on relief efforts? Meaning, getting the stuff people need to the people that need it, rapidly, and the like. Also, how many other towns are built of the same materials, with the same potential vulnerability? Is anything being done to modernize structures to be more resistent to quakes? What are the practical obstacles to that, how hard would it be, etc?

"The State-Run Media told people that the US won't send any aid"

Really? They said that? Are they saying that even after the US cargo planes full of aid have landed in Iran? And do people who watch the State Media generally believe what they say?
