Iran opposition says Iran rulers 'totalitarian'

Iran's opposition leader has denounced the country's ruling system as 'totalitarian' similar to Stalin's Soviet regime.
Mir Hossein Mousavi said in the message posted on opposition websites Wednesday that lying to its own people is the government's most outstanding feature.
The message comes as the government has stepped up its campaign against opposition leaders, calling them traitors.
Tehran's chief prosecutor said last month that it was only a matter of time before they are put on trial for the unrest following the disputed 2009 presidential election.
Hundreds of opposition supporters have been arrested in the fierce crackdown that following the election, which the opposition claimed hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won by vote fraud.
