President Donald Trump announced Monday the US will formally designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
"This unprecedented step, led by the Department of State, recognizes the reality that Iran is not only a State Sponsor of Terrorism, but that the IRGC actively participates in, finances, and promotes terrorism as a tool of statecraft," Trump said in a statement that described the IRGC as "the Iranian government's primary means of directing and implementing its global terrorist campaign."

I’m sure leftists are apoplectic.
“The designation will be the first time that the United States has ever named a part of another government as a foreign terrorist organization.”
I guess Hamas doesn’t count.
This should have been done years ago, even before the Kenyan from Indonesia usurped the office.
Hamas isn’t part of any government that we recognize.
I'm surprised the FBI didn't make the list.
This month we have 3,000 people invading our country EVERY night, 100k per month —a record.
Iran is the war belonging to Israel.
They can handle it just FINE.
They have already started that, “This undermines the Nuclear Deal, yada yada yada.”
The ruling elite is a terrorist organization.
Reality tops Idealism every time.
Who was that Iranian bitch who ran Zero’s White House.
I would love to have whatever cement, glue, or adhesive...whatever you want to call it...that bonded the MSM to using “elite” whenever it mentions the Iranian Republican Guard.
Good Lord, that is THE MOST enduring cool thing to say.
Elite. Riiiiight. The same D-bags that turned tail and ran the moment the heard the sound of M1 Abrams tank treads clacking.
This is years overdue. When will Antifa receive the same treatment?
It was former members of Iran's "Republican Guard" that shot down flight 800 back in 1996. They were hired by a wealthy Iranian family to get revenge for when the USS Vincennes shot down Iran Air flight 655.
They were also very active in furnishing IEDs to Iraqi insurgents which killed many of our soldiers.
They’ve always been terrorists! that’s why they were created!
Is this the best source you could find for this news?
She was an actress in Planet of the Apes, right?
Or CAIR, La Raza, the Cartels, MS13, Los Solidos, 18th St Gangsters, Latin Kings...just to name a few.
Hamas is part of a government that CNN recognizes, when it suits them.
If I were President, Iran would have been bombed after the Beirut Bombing. We have been letting them chant “Death to America” and murder our soldiers way too long.
