SON OF FORMER SHAH OR IRAN TALKS UP CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AS PART OF OVERTHROW OF CURRENT IRAN REGIME
The son of the late Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, claims he is currently organising a new movement in Iran aimed squarely at overthrowing the Islamic regime in Tehran.
Should he be successful, he envisages a democratic government in place and himself as part of a constitutional monarchy.
It is not known if Pahlavi, now in exile in the United States, is part of a US State Department-funded program of undermining and destabilising the current regime, which is focused around fermenting a People Power type revolution and overthrow.
Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice recently announced funding of up to $100 million towards this program, though the true figure is expected to be far more.
Pahlavi told the publication Human Events Online that he hopes to finalise his plans within the next eight to twelve weeks, with massive civil disobedience playing a key role in his revolution, which he hopes will be backed by elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.
The fact that Pahlavi has gone public with so much information about his plans seems to indicate such talk may in itself be part of a 'psych-op' against the Islamist regime, aimed at increasing the regime's fears of a People Power revolution and encouraging distrust and the questioning of loyalty of the Revolutionary Guard and Military in general.
This scheme by Pahlavi may backfire in the short term, however, as the Iranian regime may crack down harder on civil disobedience in any form, and conduct a hardcore clearing out of RG and Military senior officers, some of whom might already be sympathetic to Pahlavi's ideas.

"This regime is dedicated to implement a viewpoint which is the most extreme interpretation of religion and God’s law on Earth, anywhere around the globe, starting with itself, the region and beyond. If tomorrow they can do it in
