Public Enemy



The self-appointed leader Fakhravar (pictured above with Richard "Prince of Darkness" Perle) is going around telling the neo-cons that "Whatever the world does against the Iranian regime, the Iranian people will be supportive."

Even the historically-challenged royalist subjects of the "crown prince" reza Pahlavi or the cultish followers of "president elect" Mariam Rajavi have lately avoided making any such stupid statements publicly.

Most of the politically active and conscientious Iranians I know have a tendency to dismiss Fakhravar since he clearly has no following in Iran and maybe suffers from some sort of personality disorder (e.g. pathological narcissism or a messianic disorder).

While I agree that Fakhravar does not represent anyone other than perhaps a few people in diaspora who dont know any better than to accept what he says, his association with Perle, Ledeen, and his rumored meeting with Cheney yesterday make him a very dangerous figure. For this reason, I think we must be vigilant in keeping track of his bogus statements and exposing him at every step of the way.

In fact, consider this blog as an ad-hoc "Fakhravar Watch", and I welcome you cooperation.
