Initial reports suggested the nuclear plant has not been affected, but the southern province where the quake struck is vast and remote and details were not immediately clear.

This must mean that Bush kept his earthquake machine.

You forgot Bigfoot.

Bigfoot was the result of a Right-wing eugenics experiment gone horribly wrong...

Perhaps it was not an earthquake but maybe a bunker buster or a rod from God? Who knows! Could happen, just saying.

A 6.3 earthquake is not devastating to modern construction. It will sure get your attention, and knock stuff of shelves, but modern buildings should stay in place.

If George Bush was still President the nutcases in Iran would be blaming it on him and his earthquake machine!

Update from same source-—

A magnitude-6.3 earthquake struck near Iran’s only nuclear power station Tuesday, killing 20 people and injuring 500, according to one report, and generating tremors that were felt on the other side of the Persian Gulf.

The quake struck about 60 miles southeast of the city of Bushehr on Iran’s south coast, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

Initial reports suggested the city’s nuclear plant had not been affected, but the southern province where the quake struck is vast and remote and details were not immediately clear.

Government news agency IRNA described the quake as “devastating” and reported that the 20 dead were in the villages of Shanbe and Tasouj. One hundred ambulances were being sent to the area from the capital Tehran, it said.
