Reza Pahlavi, the former crown prince of Iran, urged the Obama administration today to focus on the "lack of political freedom and human rights" in Iran in its ongoing review of policy. His remarks at the Nixon Center in Washington were, in effect, an appeal to the new administration not to concentrate solely on the major security issues involving Iran—its nuclear program, alleged support for terrorism, and regional power ambitions. Pahlavi, son of the late shah of Iran, acknowledged that sentiment in Washington for launching a dialogue with Iran's hard-line rulers is growing. But the administration should also "open a line of dialogue with the democratic opposition," he said.

Sounds like a desperate plea to me: Please take my hand too.

The Vaalaazarkad has just realized he ain't no Chalabi and he is being flushed. What a loser indeed.


His father was a SAVAKi & he talks about "human" rights.

I don't think he even knows what Human Rights means. His father, while in power, instead of implementing the Human Rights of Cyrus the Great, built the Evin prison to torture those who sought Human Rights.

Now he calls himself crown prince on his websit. For the past 30 years he never obtained a college degree besides his "correspondence" degree from UseeLA (AKA Kordan's Oxford degree) and now
wants to lecture the educated peoples of Iranian about Human Rights.

His father's ignorance led to Mollahs coming to power in Iran. Now only god knows what trouble his son's ignorance can cause for Iranians.


The crown on his head

is the big & smelly dump Iranian folks left there after the 1979, which he has surely earned it since he became a mature person.



I just love him to bits

He is my hero, he is my idol.
