US using psychological warfare to intimidate its rivals

TEHRAN, Apr. 15 (MNA) – Top military Aide to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi said that the US will use psychological and virtual warfare more than ever to keep its authority.

“Until the coronavirus vaccine and effective treatment method is found, the extent and depth of the consequences of this crisis in various economic, political, security, military and technological, and even cultural and moral components cannot be discussed in detail,” said Major General Safavi on Tuesday.

“Although the death toll from the virus is lower than the flu, concerns and fears about the speed and strength of the outbreak and its spread have affected many areas of human relations,” he added.

Stating that the nature of its biological warfare cannot be ruled out, Safavi said, “The coronavirus has created the crisis in almost every country in the world, especially in the West and these countries have inevitably abandoned many of their interactions, relationships, activities, and priorities, and are seeking to combat the disease.”

“During the last four months, the initial effects and consequences of this crisis have been so devastating in some areas of human life or the current global characteristics and features of countries that the image of the continuation or expansion of this biological event has raised additional fears and concerns in the international community,” he added.

“Although the US and the West have so far been portrayed as the epitome of developed societies and have set their own standards as a model for the development of other societies and countries, the corona crisis has shown an inverted picture from the West,” Safavi said.

Stating that the US has intensified its policy in taking advantage of the psychological and virtual warfare caused by their current situation, he noted, “In order to maintain its interests and potentials in the regional and global dimensions, the US will use psychological and virtual warfare more than ever to keep its authority and intimidate its rivals.”
