STRANGE PREDICAMENT: Afrasiabi's Physical Transformation


STRANGE PREDICAMENT: Afrasiabi's Physical Transformation
by Darius Kadivar

Not Long ago Iranian-American academic and senior political analyst, Kaveh Afrasiabi, complained of US police brutality against him while in custody in Cambridge. In a recent interview his loss hair and pale skin contrast sharply with his previous appearances.

Has he aged in a matter of months due to post traumatic consenquences resulting from his alledged beatings or is he (or was he ? ) suffering from other unrelated health problems ?

Whichever the case I wish this well known IRI Apologist a Prompt Recovery ...

for bad service that had received at a fast food joint in Cambridge.  If you recall, that's when he got himself arrested and claimed to have suffered from police brutality...hence, the ridiculous neck brace. :-))

Gorbeh shod abed'o zahed'o  mosalmana!

As far as his "position": IR's Senior Rabid Barking Dog(SRBD) seems a description much closer to reality. Althought there's a tie between him and Areshire, O. as IR's SRBD!

Though I 've known of this character for a long while, none of these  "discrepencies" in his appearance, ever registered! Good catch!

Away with all Senior Rabid Barking Dogs !

Darius, it almost looks like he stopped going to Hair Club for Men! (that's an American outfit that specialized in hair pieces and hair replacement)

Speaking for myself, five years ago I went from shoulder length hair to a buzz cut. For me, it made me look younger. Doesn't look like Kaveh has been so fortunate.
