President Trump certainly seems to have struck a nerve given Tehrans over-the-top response to reports hes about to designate the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a terrorist group.
If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government . . . then the Revolutionary Guards will consider the American army to be like Islamic State, declared the groups commander, Gen. Mohammed Ali Jafari. Trump reportedly will make the designation as part of a new strategy thats to start with decertifying President Barack Obamas deeply flawed nuclear deal.
Itll hurt Tehran where it counts: The Guard controls some 15 percent of Irans gross domestic product. Its tentacles stretch into such key sectors as oil, gas, telecommunications and construction.
All of which will become danger areas for foreign companies looking to invest and do business in Iran.
Shortly before leaving office, Obama loosened Treasury Department rules banning investment with the Revolutionary Guard. Now, as Eli Lake noted last week, those companies will run a significant risk of doing business with a terrorist organization with all that implies.
The Guard, after all, uses its business end as a cash cow to fund its activities abroad including funneling money to such terrorist allies as Hezbollah and Hamas.
Until now, Washington has targeted components and individuals within the Guard but not the organization itself.

They could not head to Iraq or Syria, as US backed groups would have slaughtered them...
The US has immense power. If it imposes sanctions on Iran in any form and chooses to enforce them, it will stop most international trade with Iran. If a company , bank or any economic entity does business with Iran they would then be prevented from any dealing with a US bank or corporation. For instance if Deutsche Bank, Volkswagen , Airbus etc deal with a sanctioned entity in Iran, their interests in the US might be ordered shut or even seized. International economic entities are very reluctant to violate US law. At the least it puts a huge crimp in doing business with Iran. Iran was hurting badly just before Obama unilaterally lifted the sanctions. If Trump imposes sanctions, it will hurt Iran badly.
Hezbollah, ISIS, Al Qaeda, same stuff. All backed by the CIA. /s

America's FIRST Muslim President treats Americans like they are idiots. In many cases, Hussein appears to be right on.
