6th week, is a surprise to me. It is not a surprise that people has risen against more than 40 years of brutal dictatorship. It is a shock that it has been going on for this long. That is not the only part which has taken me aback. It is the movement of very young people, most notably the young girls, and I must stress very beautiful young girls, with their long and lovely hairs. These young girls have stood against a regime which has not hesitated to do everything which strengthen their pillars and at the same time spread violence all across the world. The Government of Islamic Republic has spies and terrorists all around the globe. The bombing of the Jewish center in Argentina has been tied to the Islamic Republic. That happened in 1994. The fact that this place so far away from the region which the Islamic Republic has influence, makes one thing, at first, whether that was them. Other acts of terror has been seen at other corners of the world where the investigations later led to believe that Islamic Republic had somehow either directed it or been involved directly.
Now imagine the people who show any opposition to this regime. It requires a lot of courage. I'm really proud of them. The Government of Canada has banned the entrance of a big number of high ranking officers of The Revolutionary Guards, in a reaction to these recent uprising. This is a good move but too late and too small. The Islamic Republic has already, most likely, have many spies in Canada who have traveled in form of student, merchant or who knows what. My hope is that the people can get something now that they have sacrificed the best, the youth. I'm afraid that all these efforts goes to vain and that is because of lack of leadership.
When a group does not have a good manager who is able to give them direction, help them at the time of derailing and give them courage, what happens is what has been happening at the project that I work on. Delays, chaos, incidents, unnecessary cost, you name it.
