“…for the last forty years, our thought has been trapped in hollow structures of language, a stale, dead but immensely successful rhetoric. This has represented, in my view, a defeat of the intelligence and of the will.” — Harold Pinter Here is the neocon’s preferred ‘democratic’ alternative for Iran. Their vision of a Brave New World would make Aldous Huxley shudder. In a way I feel sad for the individuals in the organization as it is clear their leadership is allowing them to be used as pawns in order to forward their personal interests. Once they have served their purpose, the pragmatic neocons will be quick to look dissociate themselves from an organization with such a profoundly fanatic bent. Imperial powers always prefer weak and colorless surrogates with no constituency of their own, so that they are easier to control.
In certain respects the MeK appear to me like a reincarnation of the The Assassins of Hasan bin Sabah.

Well, at least Hassan Sabbah had a romanic air around his Alamout and his doped followers! These dudes are simply pathetic and delusional, with their president elect in exile!!!!
They have no popular ground in Iran!
