This is Masjed Soleyman (city of Solomon's Mosque in southern Iran). One of the most fertile oil regions in Iran. Here, oil just runs below the surface...literally. 100 years after oil was discovered in this very city and 34 years after the revolution that some insist was glorious, this is the condition of the people who live there.
Instead of (lying about) sending monkies into space, instead of handing people's national wealth and oil money to the Chinese, Russions and North Koreans for outdated military junk to secure your miserable existence, take care of your people.
