Iran Fears Soft War

I've Been Thinking:
Ali Jafari is the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. The IRG is by far the most powerful group in Iran.
Jafari addressed a conference in Teheran recently and his speech was pasted on the IRG website. Jafari talked about the "Soft War."
He said that the biggest challenge to the Islamic revolution was the "Soft War." The expression "Soft War" normally refers to a conflict that does not involve conventional weapons of war like guns and planes and bombs.
In other words, a "Soft War" refers to sanctions to cyber warfare and to propaganda.
Iran is waging its own defense and attack in the "Soft War." But it has also taken some devastating blows. Acknowledging this publicly was a huge strategic move on Iran's part.
The IRG is hoping to get the support of the masses. The "Soft War" is felt most by the middle class. Jafari needs the middle class to know that at home, they are the true fighters for their Islamic revolution.
