Flooding in Iran
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
70 Iranians have died in floods over these past few weeks. The devastation has caused thousands of people to be relocated.
The numbers say everything.
1900 cites have been flooded. 140 rivers have burst their banks. 409 landslides. 78 roads destroyed. 84 bridges failed.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement: "These floods once again show the level of Iranian regime mismanagement in urban planning and in emergency preparedness. The regime blames outside entities when, in fact, it is their mismanagement that has led to this disaster ... The United States stands ready to assist and contribute to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, which would then direct the money through the Iranian Red Crescent for relief."
Pompeo is correct. Iranians are suffering and their leadership is standing idly by and letting it happen.
