Security Certificate

People study hard, pay hundreds even thousands of dollars and spend days and months behind desks and tables to get a certificate. They hope the certificate help them to get a job or get promoted. I myself tried to get CQE (Certified Quality Engineer) of ASQ, 4 times but haven't got it yet! I had to reschedule the exam. two times and failed it in the two other times I wrote it! I needed 550 and got 460 and 490. I'm saying this here because I have to register, write and pass the exam., eventually!
But there's a certificate presented here in Canada that you don't have to spend money on it or burn midnight oil. That is called Security Certificate and is really pleasing and interesting to me! But I'm not receiving it! Here's how it works: Security Certificate is used to detain suspected terrorists indefinitely without any charge. The complete term is National Security Certificate or NSC. At least six Arabs are being held under the said certificate in Canada since Sep.01 and some shortly before that. Protesters have held rallies across Canada indicating that the behaviour is against human rights and Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom. I really don't know and don't care who the hell were the people but I know for sure that they don't know their asses from their elbows. My guess is obviously a few friends and family members of the detainees plus a few Canadians who have been always a looser and were ignored and of course reporters and photographers are among the people who hold such stupid rallies. Look at this one:

CBC News Dec.10.04: In the House of Commons on Friday, the Bloc Québécois called security certificates harmful, unfair and unjust.

What did I say? Bloc has no power in Canada. All they have done so far is gaining kind of autonomy for Quebec which has never done anything good to them. They have a few seats in House of Commons. So they have to oppose something just to prove that they exist!!
Everybody who got brain inside his or her skull knows how dangerous these Arab predators are. That certificate is not only a need but a necessity. There's no other way to treat those criminals.

I spent a whole lot of time at Ali G.'s place in Okotoks today. A buddy of him, David, a Czech guy joined us shortly after my arrival. Looked like the guy and Ali G. know each other through flamenco guitar practices. He was a quiet and nice guy, although looked a little tough to me at the beginning. That's may be because he shaves his head and wears a small beard and looks like skinheads, pretty much. He's a lifeguard, Ali G. said. I thought he was there to help us to paint the walls, as that was the main reason of my travel to Okotoks but the guy just was watching an instruction clip on Ali G.'s desktop and practising the guitar.
I did most of the painting and although that was my first time but did well. I used a roller and painted part of the kitchen and living room. Ali G. bought that house a few months ago but told me that he would sell it and goes to Calgary as he's already bought a house in there! I was surprised 'cause that was not I expected. He said that he was investing and recommend me doing so.
Anyhow we had our lunch in the yard and after painting to big walls of living room, we went to a golf course. The funny thing is in a town like Okotoks in Alberta you can not wear blue jeans in there. So I borrowed a brand new short pants from he and we spent almost 1 hour there. It was fun for him because he practices that but that was my first time and although he showed me how to hold the club and swing it, I didn't do much and just watched. David was not totally in the dark but he was doing good either. After having a Mcflurry we headed home. I checked his truck, the one I'm going to borrow, an old Ford F-150 and went back to Calgary.
(Photo: I'm using P. M.'s HP Photosmart 320 everywhere to see what I can get and compare it with my own Yashica SLR. I took this on my way to Okotoks while I was behind the wheel! You can see the cracked windshield. It reminds me of the days I used to do lots of cycling all around Tehran, sometimes for more than 6 hours!)

Jehovah Witness

There're different sects of Christianity. One of them that I got familiar with when I had an ESL Advanced course in U of C, is Jehovah Witness. I remember on that time all of the students had to have a presentation and somebody picked that subject. I don't really remember what she (I guess that was one of the girls) was talking about but the story was about a follower who died because s/he needed blood transfusion and as it's not allowed in that faith, s/he refused and fucking died!
I also remember this is how I reacted to the presentation as students were free to ask questions or comment. Religion is supposed to be something helpful in your life, show you the right path and prevents you from evil doing, I said. Not something that make you act like a freaky jerk. And that's what all religions are. Christianity, Islam and Judaism, they are all craps. Ruddy, the smoker guy whom I sometimes talk to, said something nice a day, last week: Religion ruin the world. Even Gholam, the Afghan guy who was a shepherd in that poor country and then used to fight against stupid Mojahedin (obviously supported by Americans!) and served as a radioman, once said: Saudi Arabia has established a good, infinite business for itself: Hajj! People sell their belongings to go and circle the cubic stony house in terrible heat of Arabian desert, just to be called someone who attended Hajj! An uneducated shepherd from Afghanistan is wiser than a scholar in Iran or North America! I tell Gholam's story later.
All I'm saying is religion in any shape and face is just stupid. I heard that the father of the person (may be the same girl. Don't remember exactly) who died of not having blood transfusion, is suing a few people over his daughter's death! Who's guilty here? You, the stupid moron who refused the treatment or ...?

Wild Rose Country

It had been a long time that I wondered why Alberta is called the Wild Rose Country. You can see it as a slogan on number plates. Then I thought that must be because there are wild roses in this province. But why haven't I seen one yet?
Today I went for a short walk to Fish Creek Provincial Park and that's where you can see lots of them: Wild roses. Small and tiny, pinkish and incredibly good smelling. I hadn't been to that part of the park since last year's flood. The bridge over Bow River is fixed now. So I crossed the river. When you're on the bridge there's a cool wind caressing your entire body and it's really pleasing. I stayed there for a few min. and cooled down while was looking at birds diving to the river or just surfing the wind. That was so nice. (I forgot my digital sound recorder again! Damn!)
Then I headed up north the park until I get to where Deerfoot Tr. goes to the south, to Highway No. 2. But that was the end. Flood has washed off the path and there's a detour which I didn't take. I was looking for a beaver like the one I saw a few weeks ago in the other part of the park or the one which lives at the other bank of the river but didn't see anything. I also tried P. M.'s digital camera and found it absolutely useless. You have no control over anything. The only bright side is it's quick for some sorts of photos.
(Photo: An Albertan wild rose. You can also see a wild rose in the official website of Government of Alberta. I took this photo in the park today and that's not bad)

A Joke Called Democracy

Zahra Kazemi, a resident of Quebec was killed in 2003 in Tehran. She was taking photographs of prisoners' families who were demonstrating in front of Evin prison. What has happened to her is not known by anyone yet. Canada accuses employees of Iranian Ministry of Intelligence of murdering her and Iranians say the woman fell down and her head was hit to a hard thing and died! And that was because she was on hunger strike and the sugar level of her blood dropped drastically! I like this story. They're good at making stories like that. I can narrate as many as 20 from the ones I have in my mind from the days I used to live in Iran. But one thing they don't know is not everyone is as dumb as the fucking stupid scums who voted for them and will, in the next election.
I think it doesn't matter how Kazemi died. What matters here is Kazemi was an idiot and she was the one who caused that trouble which led to her death. Everyone around the world and in Iran, obviously, knows that a bunch of murderer, ignorant, predators have been running the country for more than 25 years. So why the fuck don't you fucking think before you do such a stupid thing? Who, on earth, goes to one of the darkest and the most dreadful prisons in the world and starts photography!? The fucking Islamic Republic has shown that they never care who they're dealing with. They kill everybody and they use any way they find. So Kazemi acted like a jerk, stupid, moron and deserved that.
Today after almost three years, Canadian Government asked Germany to arrest Saeed Mortazavi, the Iranian chief prosecutor, who has ties to the arrest and murder of Kazemi, if he stops in a German airport on his way home. The stopover didn't happen, though. But the question is why the hell, the Canadian authorities didn't ask Swiss officials to arrest him?! Mortazavi and another Iranian were in Geneva for a human-right conference.
Same thing happened few years before I leave Iran. I guess it was almost 10 years ago when a few of Iranian officials including the Supreme Leader, were accused of murdering of or ordering to murder Kurdish leaders in Mykonos restaurant in Berlin. A German judge ordered arrest of the said people and I remember there were demonstrations in Tehran, including Ferdowsi St., right in front of the German embassy. But the arrest never happened and Iran and Germany are friends now. I would like to add that I remember placards everywhere comparing Mykonos to Mickey Mouse! I also, one day, went to see what's happening in front of the embassy. I was heading home on a bus and at Ferdowsi St., I got off and, my God! there were a huge crowd. Some of them were former soldiers or volunteers who had been injured by chemical weapons during Iran-Iraq war. They were shouting slogans against Germans and of course the US and reminding them of supplying Iraqis with chemical weapons. A large model of a ground to ground missile has been also put in front of the main door of the embassy and a huge painted photo of a chemically wounded solider has been put there were everybody could see it from meters away. Honestly speaking I kind of liked that rally and I also remember that I was excited. I also wished I have had my camera with me. Because I strongly believe that European countries and the US supplied Iraq during the 8-year devastating war just because they didn't like Iranian government. They didn't care that this is Iranian people who were suffering. They just helped that motherfucker murderer, Saddam, to get rid of Iran and finally they had to remove him, themselves. All I'm saying is what's being said about democracy in western countries and developing democracy in third world countries are all bull crap. Governments just care about their profit. If a country like Iran with such a corrupt government has profits for them, they never do something that really endangers the existence of it. But if there's a government like Saddam's and there's a time that they feel it's turning to a pain in the ass, they wipe it off, immediately. I, later, give you a few more examples of the funny joke called democracy, including the one I once discussed with the friend of mine, Andrew. Oh ... I've lost my contact with him. That's bad. He's too busy with his new woman.
(Photo: This is what happened to three, I guess, leaders of Kurdistan Democratic Party in Mykonos restaurant in Berlin in 1992. Although I'm not sure about the credibility of the photo.I, myself, don't like most of the Kurds because they're separatist like Quebecers here in Canada. Some of them even deny their Iranian roots. But didn't like what Iranian government did to these people, though. I may tell the story after considerable investigations later)

Carolina Won

I didn't have the chance to watch the last game of 2006 Stanley Cup Finals tonight as a result of exhausting but Carolina Hurricanes won the cup after defeating Edmonton Oilers 3-1. I only watched the last 01:17 min. of the game when it was 2-1 for Carolina and Edmonton had pulled out its goalie for a man-advantage but that didn't help as usually doesn't and Carolina had an empty-neter and everything was over for the Oilers.
That was the second consecutive year which a Canadian team from Alberta was fighting for the cup in the Finals. There was Calgary in 2003-2004 which they finally lost to Tampa Bay in game 7, just like Edmonton tonight. And 2004-2005 season was locked out.

Discover Calgary

I borrowed P. M.'s digital camera today (Sun.!) and tried to get familiar with it's features and functions. It's an HP Photosmart 320. I don't know much about digital cameras and after Resurrect's, this is the second one I'm using.
So I went where I always wanted to be: Spiller Road where Calgary cemeteries are located! You can have a nice view of Downtown, Stampede Park,Pengrowth Saddledome, etc from there. I started walking in the tombs and how beautiful, quite and peaceful it was. After taking a few photos I noticed a building like a house at the other side of the fence. I asked me: Who lives here besides a cemetery, although it's very beautiful and quite!? Then I got closer and noticed that there's a path with a board indicating Reader Rock Gardens. That was a restaurant in a magnificent, beautiful garden full of different flowers and planets! There were a few people inside but I didn't go. I took a few photos and planned to be back with my own camera later. Then when I was back to the cemetery I noticed two coyotes roaming around. At first one of them was chasing a hare but couldn't manage to catch it. Then there were birds like crow with long tail (I don't know what it's called but it's a bird you see everywhere here) who were screeching and chasing the coyote! Wherever it went, they chased it! I took two photos of them and that was when I noticed that digital zoom is a useless feature in digital cameras. You get the subject bigger but the quality is very poor. I went to Talisman for my exercises right after that while promised me to go there again during Stampede days and take more photos with my own camera.
(Photo: This fantastic building and the beautiful garden of it, full of different beautiful flowers is located right beside the cemetery, is a convenient place for dinning. I'll give it a try later)

Almost a Complete Game!

Game six of 2006 NHL Finals in Edmonton is probably the only game that I spent the longest min. on it! Except a few min. of the first period that I was in the shower (and luckily the period was scoreless!) I watched the whole game.
The first thing I noticed was the Prime Minister in the crowed when Canadian national anthem was being sang by everyone in Rexall Place, including him. He had his glasses and suits on! It's OK to have a pair of glasses but why would you wear a suit in a game? Just to say you're Stephen Harper?
Anyhow Edmonton had a good start and the first intermission finished, as I said, scoreless. Markannen suddenly jumped out of the net in the period to get the puck and that was going to cost the Oilers but didn't. The first period was finished with a 10-3 shootout for Edmonton.
Piasani who made the Hurricanes to travel all the way to Edmonton for the sixth game, scored in a powerplay in the second period and that was the opening for the Oilers. That was just a mild backhand but was deflected by number 2 of the Hurricanes and went in.
They scored one more time in that period to have a 2-0 lead at the end of 40 min. Markannen did the same mistake that Ty Conklin did in the first game after Roloson was injured. He came out of the net and passed to a teammate while a Hurricane was about to get the puck and scored. But he was lucky for the second time and got away from that.
Edmonton had a 3 on 1 great chance in the third period and they scored, I believe, but the judges didn't count it. Ward, as I saw, took the puck out of the net with his glove, while it has already passed the score line. That was called a miraculous save by the commentator later. Then Smyth went all the way to the Carolina net in a powerplay, right from the middle of the rink and scored and made it 3-0. At 11:14 left to the game it was 28-8 shots for Edmonton. The Hurricanes had a few powerplays but didn't score as a good penalty killing by Edmonton. On the other side Markannen had an easy day, almost. The last score of the Oilers was on powerplay again and they blanked the Hurricanes 4-0. The last game will be played on Mon. in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Back to Edmonton

After missing the 4th game which ended to a loss for Edmonton, I promised myself to watch the whole 5th game between the Oilers and the Hurricanes tonight in Raleigh, North Carolina but couldn't keep my promise! I started watching and in 16 sec., Edmonton scored while I was in the washroom washing my hands! Can you believe this? And I was elated and said to me: " They're determined to beat them. " Then Carolina scored 5 min. later and all I said was: " Shit! " and noticed that can't watch the game and turned the TV off! After a few min. I went to bed. I guess it was around 07:00 PM and woke up with my cell phone's ring around 08:40 PM. That was Mom. At first I thought it's 08:40 AM and I said to me: " Oh my God! I missed the work. I'll be in trouble! " After a few min. of confusion, I found out that it's still Wed. afternoon. I got back to the TV when I finished talking to Mom. It was tied up 3-3 and OT was about to start. There were a few opportunities for both team and a penalty was called against Edmonton. After an Edmonton offence, Carolina guys were sliding the puck to the neutral zone and that was the time when Pisani stole the puck and confronted Ward, the Hurricanes goaltender and made one of the most beautiful goals that I've ever seen, short-handed. I shouted and clapped so hard like I've never did and jumped up! The final score of the game is 4-3 for Edmonton and the series is still in progress with a 3-2 lead by Carolina. The next game will be played again in Edmonton on Sat.

Micro Fail

I was so confident and determined in the morning and was dreaming about what I'm gonna do after get the job in the small plant as a quality inspector! That was specially because I studied enough about calipers last night. I even went to Keiv's and got confirmation from him about the way I use imperial calipers. Then when I got to Mid Western, Stephen referred me to a motherfucker Indian guy with a golden earring and he introduced me to a Canadian guy, Kyle and asked him to show me a few parts and test me with a micrometer. I had not practiced that tool and what I told him that I was familiar with the tool but had not used it practically. Kyle show me the micrometer and explained its divisions and subdivisions. Then he made a measurement and asked me to tell him what it is. I calculated fast on the paper and showed him. He did it on his own way and confirmed it. Thou is what they use for thousands of inch! I luckily understood that but then the stinky Indian with his stupid ridiculous accent showed up and asked me to show him for example 2.543" on the micrometer and me, the stupid, said that I needed more practice and that was the end. The motherfucker refereed me to Stephen and after a short conversation we shook hands and I left! I should have studied micrometers last night but I didn't think that might be a question because Stephen just talked about imperial vernier calipers. Besides if they need an inspector and a safety officer, they don't just reject him because he has never used a micrometer!
I'm sure non of those morons in that small workshop has ever been to school. They are all experienced guys and it was hard for them, specially for the Indian one, to see someone educated and organized take over their inspection department. All they do over there is stupid things but I thought that might be a good start for me to just get familiar with Canadian manufacturing environment and learn a few things and then leave there. Those idiots do all their inspections after all the processes is done! For example there were a part whit all holes, welds and cuts and they wanted to measure different dimensions of it! They use blueprints as a reference for their measurements and when I asked if they have an inspection plan, they both looked at me with wide open eyes and mouths! They don't even know what it is! Anyway that's all happened and I have to focus on the next opportunity and my studies.

The Break-Up

I watched The Break-Up today in Chinook. Last weekend, I guess it was Fri. night when I got there at 10:35 PM, I was told that it had been sold out. I guess most of the people who catch the movie, go to a theater to see the F.R.I.E.N.D.S star, Jennifer Aniston.
Aniston is probably the most popular star of the TV show, not only because of her appearance but also because of her relationship with Brad Pitt, which ended up later to breaking up! She's also the busiest star after the last episode of the funny TV show. The only other movie with her I watched is Bruce Almighty. She's a good actress in both movies and also Friends. Her boyfriend in the movie, which is not known to me very much, performs well but the movie is just something below average and I guess that's the lack of a good story or scenario.
The film, as a romance doesn't even have the usual scenes that you expect when you watch such movies, not even a kiss! Just the dialogue might be interesting to the audience. Like the two teenage girls who were sitting beside me and were laughing loudly and repeating what the couple say. Finally I enjoyed the movie but that's not what I expected. Why is it the second movie in top box office? I have no answer for this but Aniston.

The Stressed-Out Guy

I didn't watch much of the third game of the Oilers-the Hurricanes in Edmonton, firstly because me and Laszlo went to The French Maid for a beer, as he wanted, and secondly because I usually don't watch a whole game!
But let me get to The Maid, first. We only watched 3 shows. The first girl was performing when we got in and God! I couldn't believe my eyes! What a boob! Those ones were too big and so prominent. I guess they were fake 'cause no one has such a boob especially in that age. (I had a look at her face later and she was in her late 30s). The problem is I didn't get hard! Obviously it was after 8 hours work and I didn't have more than 5 hour sleep last night. And no lunch but a cup of coffee and a pastry. Besides I'm mostly aroused emotionally not physically. Then there were two girls performing together and one of them, the older one, had a perfect body, in my view: Big natural boobs with hard nipples, a little belly with a tattoo on the bellybutton and nice hair. The other one was just OK. The last girl was just very tall with sexy legs and she danced very well with a Country song. We left shortly after that.
Then the game was not bad. Don Cherry talked a lot about the way Jussi Markkanen, Roloson's replacement, played. He said: " The kid (that's how he usually names the players!) was on so much pressure because of the last game in Raleigh, and played well. His career was in jeopardy and he had too prove himself. " After all it's said that Roloson might return to the games. I saw a few nice saves of Jussi tonight and the Oilers won the game 2-1 finally which is not a good score.
Note: I was looking for an official website of Don Cherry and noticed that he owns a chain restaurant with different branches mostly in Atlantic Canada and Ontario. There's only one restaurant in Edmonton. This is the Internet address in case anyone likes to give it a try: . I may when I'm in one of the locations.

Europe's Prescription For Terrorism

A CBC reporter has travelled to different European cities to observe how they deal with extremism in there. Holland and Britain were among the countries he reported from. He faced recently-grown anti-Muslim activities. He spoke to a few people including a British man who is fighting against fucking Pakis and a member of Holland Parliament who has recently added a test for the ones who would like to migrate to that country. She has been receiving death threat ever since. What the report indicated is Islamic extremism is growing in Europe and so does racism. I'm sure it's not only Holland and Britain. Same story is true in Germany, Denmark, Sweden and other European countries as well. But they are all late in reaction. The difference between Europe and Canada is European countries are not in need of foreigners like Canada does. So Canadians try to show a friendly face to immigrants but the truth is they hate them all. And as they stupid and let them in to just use them, they basically cause problems for themselves. For example the recent arrest of 17 people in Toronto causes a trouble problem for Canada. Suppose the people are found guilty and sent to few years in jail. What are you gonna do with them after that?! They won't be accepted anywhere. They can't get a job or go to school. So they become more dangerous threats for Canadian society. And that will grow more hatred in extremist here. It's like a cycle: More extremists leads to more violence and more violence leads to more arrests and charges. More arrests and charges leads to more desperate people who are hungry for revenge and ...
This process never ends. Only European prescription works here.
(Photo: Al-Zarqawi an extremist who is said was behind all terrorist activities in Iraq. This photo is taken from a clip he released a few weeks ago. It's said that Americans spotted him through the video which made them able to kill him and a few aids yesterday in a city near Baghdad! That sounds like a joke to me)

Got Blanked

When I turned the TV on to watch the second game of '06 Final in Carolina, about 10 min. had passed and the Hurricanes were ahead of the Oilers 1-0. I said: OK. It's just the beginning. I enjoyed the rest of the 1st period while both teams had opportunities. The commentator was saying how good the new goalie of the Oilers is and how relaxed he plays. Edmonton had to use the Finnish goaltender, Markkanen, after Roloson's serious injury in game one and when they found the Alaskan goalie, Ty Conklin not competent enough. Then the first period was over and I turned the TV off to study inch and caliper a little. When I checked the score through the net ... Oh my Goodness! 3-0 Carolina and then 5-0 and the game was over! We'll wait and see what's gonna happen in Edmonton this Sat.
(Photo: One of the 5 goals of the Hurricanes against Edmonton)


Last week Stephen, the plant manager of the small manufacturing company which I had interview with, e-mailed me and asked for reference and salary I request. I introduced Keiv and Soroosh and indicated the salary range I was looking for. In order to specify what the range of salary was for that position, I did a little search on the net. Today (Thu.) I received another e-mail from him after a week indicating that he agreed on the salary I had requested and also the benefits. But he would like to see my experience in measurement!
That's what I'm afraid of. As I wrote in the related post, they measure based on Imperial Measuring System and to 1/1000 of inch accuracy. Luckily I was taught that in SAIT and have references but I'm not confident. So while there's a hope for being hired, there's also a little fear. If I mess up the samples he gives me, I'll be kicked out. I exercised a little tonight but that's not enough. Eventually I was asking me if I can call myself a Quality Engineer while can't even do a simple measurement in inch using a caliper?!

Flashback (10): The Airports

Something interesting came to my mind a few days ago and decided to post it today here. That's about the airports I was in before I landed in Calgary International Airport. Here's what happened:
At first in Mehr-Aabad International Airport, in Tehran when I was checking in, I noticed that my luggage is too heavy and have to pay the fee or get rid of some. I did both! But when I was moving a few things around, I tore my pants! Imagine that I boarded a Lufthansa jet and got all the way to Calgary with that pants on!
Then in Frankfurt Airport where I had to wait for my flight to Calgary, for few hours, I encountered two German policemen. I was sitting, doing nothing and two or three bags of mine were with me. Suddenly two tall policemen appeared in front of me. That was almost 3 months after Sep.11 attacks in the US. One of them had a machine gun and the other one started asking questions about my destination and my documents. I showed them my immigration papers and they left. But they didn't check the bags. I noticed that everyone was watching. I prob. was the only non-European all around. That was very humiliating. I got blushed.

The Mistakes that Cost Them the Game

As I usually cannot watch my favorite team playing(!), I only watched the last period of the first game of '06 Stanley Cup tonight. When I started gluing my eyes to the TV it was 3-1 Edmonton but as the time passed Carolina got ahead 4-3! and that was the moment that I was about to leave. Then a nice score and 4-4 tied but shortly after that Roloson got injured and out of the game. The replacement was disappointing. Ty Conklin made a bad mistake in less than 20 seconds in regular time and Edmonton lost the game 5-4!
The Oilers head coach later announced that the goalie is out of the playoffs! Edmonton played well though. In the last seconds of the game they had 3 chances to score. Now with Roloson out and one game lost it seems not easy to the Oilers to compete.

Home-Made Terrorism

17 People have been arrested in Toronto as suspects of terrorism. 5 out of the seventy are youths and were born in Canada or have been living here since their early childhood. As well as some others. All of them are Muslims. In reaction to that the glasses of a mosque in that city was smashed last night and worshipers in an Islamic centre in Calgary were harassed and sworn at.
It's said that the accused have been monitored since 2004. Toronto Police, OPP, RCMP, CISC and other official forces raided the homes and arrested the people.
CBC had reports and interviews in that regards tonight and their question (I'd say stupid question) is: What makes someone to turn his back to his country and plan to harm people of his own?
The answer to this question is so easy and there's no need to be discussed with experts and analysts! I tell you how it happens:
Canadians are stupid and there's no doubt about that. They let every fucking stupid ignorant in and many Muslims are included: Arabs, Pakistanis, Africans and others. The said people are mostly uneducated and have no talent or expertise. So what happens is they end up doing the jobs, mostly which just make them able to be alive. They see Canadians' life and envy: Beautiful girls, nice houses, luxury cars and many many more. Then they blame this on Canadians and form their own cells and gathering places like mosques. They don't go to the mosque to worship or learn, as they say, peace. They go there to learn how to make bombs, detonate themselves and kill people. This is what they have been taught through Quran, their leaders and parents. So what do you expect? You wait and do nothing and see what will happen in near future. You'll pay for your mistake and the price is high.

Mutual Appriciation

I've reached the part of It Doesn't Take A Hero where Schwarzkopf is back to the US and expresses his experience and the reaction of American citizens. He says:

... I climbed in to a taxi. Wearing my uniform with all my ribbons and my Vietnamese airborne beret, I kept waiting for the driver to make a big fuss and exclaim " Hey! You're just back from Vietnam, aren't you! " Nothing. So I fed him hints like " Gee, I haven't seen Newark for a while. " But he dropped me at my mother's place with scarcely a word.

Or in again he says in another part:

... After two days I wanted to run through the streets yelling, " Hey! In Vietnam people are Dying! Americans are dying! How can you act like nothing is happening? "

I remember years ago when I was reading Oriana Fallaci's books about Vietnam War, Nothing and So Be It, She expressed the same feeling. When she was back to Florence, her hometown in Italy and visited a few people:
When she was to her neighborhood pharmacy, the clerk says: Oh! Is that you? I thought I've lost a good customer! She replies: No! I was in Vietnam. The clerk reacts: Oh! That's sad!
And that was all!
Or somewhere else when she says that she was just back from Vietnam the person asks: How was the weather out there?!
I guess we had almost the same feeling during the 8 year Iran-Iraq war until the enemy started bombing our city and firing ground-to-ground missiles. But there was a difference. People were being propagated by TV and the other media about war but seemed even that one didn't help the government much. Although many young people were brain-washed or tempted by the benefits they would receive if they are back from the war or the ones their families would receive if they get killed during the combat.
