I wonder if any of these are circus-freaks (in a good way), never heard of a few of them
Would you ever have expected people like the Druze in Syria?! I just want to set up a camp in the sparsely populated desert there, anything’s better than the US. Obscure ubermenschen of Iran though?
Can you believe this?
Makes you want to go there without a guide even more doesn’t it?
Another one like this, that’s even stricter
Is it a satellite-state of Iran? What’s going on in that Amu-Darya Reserve…
Only 8000 visitors a year, half of them Iranian. Apparently they watch every move you make and the hotels are bugged.
Looking at clownworld this is a stupid question isn’t it?
Why would you want westerners or those influenced by the west to be in your country at all?
Might be a good sign
If we isolated like this in flyover country for a decade it would probably be for the best.
Anyway, they seem to be the strangest so far in that area. Weird that Iran itself is only 50-60% Persian.

We’re still far away from deprogramming this psyop regarding MENA in general
