Does the regime in Iran knows what is hapening in Iran?
This is being called a democracy " Islamic Republic " style. whom the regime is going to fool? Iranian intellectuals ? of course not , it is a policy of throwing a stone in the dark . It is because, for the Islamic Republic it is too late to fool the Iranian intellectuals. Perhaps regime is trying to fool the UN and world NGO's and its own supporters and may be some moslem around the world.
In fact all the above News Agencies are the AGO's and not NGO's. and the elected director is the best candidate in censoring and banning the independent media. Iranian intellectuals are not blind and they dont buy this , because they can easily find the past and present activity of the elected director.He is infact the director of the most fanatic news agencies close to Ahmadinejad.
The reality is that; the regime is unable to control the growing number of Iranian striving for human rights and independent mind and learning how to deal with this regime best with less human casulties and economic damages. Iranian intellectuals , Iranian students , teachers, bloggers, writers , journalists , women , lawyers , workers and political activists are aware .
In fact it is the regime that is unaware of what is hapening in Iran.
