General Jazayeri: Potential for World War

From Yahoo News:
A senior Iranian military commander has warned that any US or Israeli attack on the Islamic republic would start a world war, the state news agency IRNA reported on Saturday.

"Any aggression against Iran will start a world war," deputy chief of staff for defence publicity, Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri, said in a statement carried by the agency.

"The unrestrained greed of the US leadership and global Zionism... is gradually leading the world to the edge of a precipice," Jazayeri said, citing the unrest in Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan and Georgia.

"It is evident that if such a challenge occurs, the fake and artificial regimes will be eliminated before anything," he said, without naming any countries.

Jazayeri's comments are noteworthy, particularly his references to conflicts in the region-Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan and Georgia-and their linkage to a potential conflict with Iran, scaled in terms of a world war.
