PressTV – ‘Europe to face social explosions’


A senior Iranian commander says the recent protests in the UK have raised the possibility of “social explosions” in other European countries in the near future.

“The European countries’ fear and concern about the spread of what happened in the UK has put the possibility of experiencing social explosions in the fall before the governments [in Europe],” Deputy Head of Iran’s Armed Forces Joint Chiefs of Staff Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said on Tuesday.

Jazayeri also said the European nations’ wave of rage against their governments has sparked an explosion that might lead to the collapse of the US-style liberal democracy sooner than expected.
