Son of Shah likely to usurp discredited Mousavi following revelations of bloody terrorist past

Reza Pahlavi, son of the former Shah of Iran, is positioning himself to become the new US-backed puppet leader of Iran should the current regime be toppled by protests still sweeping the country after the disputed election, following revelations that Mir-Hossein Mousavi directed terrorist attacks against the United States in the 1980’s.
Should the popular uprising, which some allege is being fomented by western intelligence as a gateway to regime change, be successful, Mousavi’s plans to take power are likely to be derailed by his bloody past.
According to a report by CQ Politics;
He may yet turn out to be the avatar of Iranian democracy, but three decades ago Mir-Hossein Mousavi was waging a terrorist war on the United States that included bloody attacks on the U.S. embassy and Marine Corps barracks in Beirut.
Mousavi, prime minister for most of the 1980s, personally selected his point man for the Beirut terror campaign, Ali Akbar Mohtashemi-pur, and dispatched him to Damascus as Iran’s ambassador, according to former CIA and military officials.
The ambassador in turn hosted several meetings of the cell that would carry out the Beirut attacks, which were overheard by the National Security Agency.
The man standing in line to usurp the discredited Mousavi is none other than the son of the late Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, who is emerging as a prominent figure and a staunch advocate for the protesters.
Pahlavi’s reaction to the tragic death of the slain protester “Neda,” who was apparently killed by pro-Ahmadinejad militia forces on Saturday in Tehran, has propelled the former crown prince of Iran to national prominence.
In an emotional press conference yesterday, Pahlavi said that Neda was one of his daughters as he fought back tears in front of the cameras.
He also warned on Monday that the defeat of the demonstrators protesting the election in Iran could eventually lead to a nuclear war, stating, “Their defeat will encourage extremism from the shores of the Levant to the energy jugular of the world.”

Pahlavi has long planned to help overthrow the current regime in Iran. Five years ago he called for “a revolution sparked by massive civil disobedience in which the masses in the streets are backed by elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard,” adding that he was in contact with members of the Guard who shared his vision.
Pahlavi left Iran in 1978 and was educated in the United States before training as a jet fighter pilot at the Reese Air Force Base in Lubbock, Texas.
According to writer Michael Edwards, Pahlavi “Has continually appeared on satellite radio and TV shows beamed into Iran, repeatedly calling for civil disobedience in order to topple the Islamic Mullahs. He promotes a US-UN backed referendum to decide whether Iran is to be governed as a constitutional monarchy, which he says he can lead as Shah, or a “secular democracy.”
We are again seeing history repeat itself. In 1953, the United States orchestrated a violent coup in Iran under the auspices of Operation Ajax to topple the democratically elected government of Mohammed Mossadegh and replace it with the western-compliant yet brutal regime of Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi, before its overthrow following the 1979 revolution.
The Shah’s son is now positioning himself to be installed as the next stooge by US, British and Israeli interests should the regime of the Mullahs be brought down by the mass demonstrations. It appears that Mousavi is merely a stop gap for the Anglo-American establishment and that his terrorist past will swiftly be used to discredit him and prevent him from assuming power, leaving the path clear for Pahlavi to step in and allow the New World Order to once again seize control Iran for the first time in 30 years.
