The so-called "mild war" in Iran on its scale is greater than World Wars I and II, a senior general of the Revolutionary Guards (Sepah) said.
General Massoud Jazayeri, Deputy Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, said that the power, reached the greatest success in the arms race, will win in this war, FARS news agency said.
The term "mild war" is often used by Iranian officials and the press after the presidential elections in Iran last June, in which Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gained a victory. The opposition did not recognize the election results and held a mass protest.
The government calls the activity of opposition media outlets, Iranian opposition organizations operating abroad, opposition leaders who do not recognize the results of the elections, the UN Security Council, the world community and especially, the activity of the West, aimed at ceasing Iran's nuclear programa as a "mild war".
He said that the world split into "pure Islam" (the Shi'a trend taken by Iranian officials) on the one hand and Zionism and imperialism on the other hand.
He said that Iran will gain a victory in this global war.
According to official results of the June 12 presidential elections in 2009, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad got 62.63 percent of votes. His rival Mir-Hossein Mousavi managed to gain 33.75 percent.
Mousavi's supporters accused the authorities of rigging the results of the elections and called for their cancellation. Mass protests escalated into violent clashes with police. Several people died, 1,032 activists were arrested. Later some of them were released.
