I didn't see this mentioned anywhere but in my opinion this is a big development. It changes the dynamic in which we handle Iran in general even to the extent of being able to sieze/freeze Iranian assets.

Good. We’ll get these Iranians in jumpsuits and down to Gitmo before Maliki can get them released.

That list of ‘NAY’ votes is a list of IDIOTS. Some people say they want to focus only upon subsets of the IRGC that actually transport the weapons into Iraq and do the training there, as though the master group should be ignored as a terrorist force. The Islamists are constantly creating smaller splinter groups for various tactical, personnel, and ideological reasons — but it plays right into their hands to only go after the new itty bitty groups, or the groups that are directly involved in specific attacks, and not to realize that the entire IRGC is the enemy.

I’d say it’s a big developement as we’re waging a global war on terror. Declaring an arm of the Iranian military a terrorist organization could be considered tantamount to a declaration of war against Iran.

I agree. It seems to make more sense to wipe out the big pockets first to take the teeth out of these splinter groups. Where do these people think these little groups are getting their equipment/training from?

That’s my take on it. It atleast provides justification.

It is a big deal, I was slumming at the DUmp and they recognized it immediately as a precursor to stronger measures against Iran.

They haven’t yet. The Senate just approved this ammendment yesterday and as far as the bill record shows it was the last action taken on the bill up to this point.

The last action I can find from the house is the passage of the Popcorn Workers Lung Disease Prevention Act.

I’d have my staff research this further, but if I was a very conservative Senator, I might have voted against it too since it seems to be usurping Executive power. Admitting that the Senate has the power to add to the list means they can subtract from it too. Still, all’s well that ends well.

And if they have been voted as a terrorist group, what would stop us from including them in the war on terror? We should start the immediate bombing of any place that this group hangs out. Go in and kill as many of them as possible. Break all their toys...NOW!!!!

The usual I always find, impeach Bush, blah,blah,blah.

This one caught my eye because I think they are correct. I don't think President Bush will leave them to be dealt with by a democrat, and they know this deep down inside too, but for a different reason. They think he LIKES to go to war, and won't pass up the chance while we here understand that it is NECCESARY to do it sometimes.
