Some History buff will know the answer, but please tell me the Persians or Iranians defeated the Spartans like 1,000 years ago or whatever.

It was the Persians. The Iranians are Persians. It was more like 2500 years ago (depending if we are talking Darius or Xerxes), and the contemporary Muslim-Iranian culture is fundamentally different from the Ancient Persian culture. 

And FYI, to the best of our knowledge, the Persians did not have giants, monsters, or super-elephants as part of their army.
