US Move to Blacklist IRGC Terrorism: Tehran

Iran: US forces in danger if White House tags country's military as terror group

It is expected that US President Donald Trump will designate Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization, as he plans to reveal a tougher new strategy on Iran next week. The U.S. government has sanctioned individuals and entities with ties to the Guard in the past, including a special forces unit in 2007.

On Monday night, there was the rare sight of Iran's urbane, globe-trotting foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, alongside Guards commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari appearing together for reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Tehran.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Qasemi said on Monday that Tehran would give a "firm, decisive and crushing" response if the United States goes ahead with such a plan.

He added that the U.S. would have to move its military bases outside the 2,000km range of Iran's missiles.

"The Americans wanted to keep ISIS in this region for 20 years and use it as an instrument; however, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps humiliated the ISIS by supporting the nations of Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon", Rouhani said.

Trump is expected to "decertify" a landmark 2015 deal Iran struck with world powers to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of most global sanctions. He must decide by Sunday whether to recertify the agreement, but is widely expected to declare Iran non-compliant with it, which would require Congress to make a decision on re-imposing sanctions.

His comments come just 24 hours after Iran threatened the USA with a "firm, decisive and crushing" response to sanctions.

The U.S.is angry over the JCPOA because at a "sensitive time that they wanted to say that Iran is a liar and secretly wants to build nuclear arms, Iran, by attending (nuclear) negotiations, proved that they (Americans) are liars", Rouhani stated. "It's time America be taught new lessons".

"It seems the Trump administration understands only swear words, and needs some shocks to understand the new meaning of power in the world", said Iranian armed forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri, who is also a Revolutionary Guards commander.

"Unlike the pre-deal era when the whole world was united against Iran, the world is now united against the United States, particularly so because Trump's measures regarding other worldwide agreements has sparked global opposition", former Iranian diplomat Javid Ghorban Oghli said in an op-ed written for pro-reform Shargh Daily.
