US About To Declare Iran’s Revolutionary Guard A ‘Terrorist Organization’

Fact checked

Washington is reportedly preparing to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organization, just ahead of the elections in Israel.

The first such designation of another country’s military, could come as early as next Monday three US officials told Reuters and the Wall Street Journal

A top Iranian commander has warned that the US bases in the region would be insecure if Washington blacklisted the IRGC or imposed sanctions on Iran over its defense program.   

RT reports: Such a move would be a major escalation of the Trump administration’s policy of pressure on Iran, which began with the pullout from the nuclear deal last May and continued with the reimposition of sanctions suspended under the 2015 agreement.

The IRGC was founded after Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. Its foreign expeditionary branch, the Quds force, has been heavily involved in fighting against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists in Syria, as well as other militant groups opposed to the government in Damascus. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, however, considers Iran an existential threat to his country, and has even made thinly veiled nuclear threats against Damascus and Tehran over IRGC’s presence in Syria.

The timing of the announcement is especially interesting, given that Netanyahu is facing a tough election next Tuesday. In addition to ditching the nuclear deal, US President Donald Trump has made several other moves in support of Netanyahu, including the relocation of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and the recent recognition of Israel’s claim to the Golan Heights, which it has occupied since the 1967 war with Syria, Jordan and Egypt.

  1. How about the same for Mexico. Supporting and aiding the INVASION of a sovereign nation, by truck and train, is not the act of a friendly nation!

    CLOSE THE BORDER AND REVOKE PASSPORTS!!

    • There should be Marshall Law declared 200 Miles in from the Border. Assign national guard forces to ice.

  2. Wasn’t Trump supposed to end American involvement in international conflict? What happened?

    • CIA has had a chokehold on Iran since the 1950s when they took over Iran. President Trump is trying to bring down the CIA in Iran and it’s resulted in war basically. He understands that no American will be free until everyone is free due to the worldwide CIA cabal.

      • Pahlevi was safe until he dabbled with the idea of nationalizing Iran’s oil in the late 70’s. Before you could say ‘Shazaam’, Khomeini is dropped in from his Paris sanctuary and we have a coup complete with US embassy takeover and the Shah escaping with terminal cancer. By a strange coincidence, we have a similar scenario in NK with global CIA ‘limited hangouts’.

      • Jews kyke. What is the promise of the Jew religion to the Jew people kyke? How many times do I have to put this to you?
