An exiled Iranian political cartoonist and blogger says the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps' (IRGC) plan to conduct a "soft war" against Iran's "enemies" is flawed because of the government's ideology, RFE/RL's Radio Farda reports.

The IRGC commander in the holy city of Qom, General Ebrahim Jabari, said on September 7 that some 2,000 Basij members would be taught to operate blogs for what he called a "soft war" against "enemies."

Toronto-based opposition cartoonist and blogger Nikahang Kowsar told RFE/RL on September 8 that "I think members of the Revolutionary Guard are going to intervene in different social networks in cyberspace, as the government has found itself vulnerable in this field."
