    Default Bill Signed by Trump Targets Iran’s IRGC For Terrorism – For The First Time

    Bill Signed by Trump Targets Iran’s IRGC For Terrorism – For The First Time

    (CNSNews.com) – While most attention has been focused on the Russia elements of the bipartisan sanctions bill signed by President Trump on Wednesday, the legislation also – for the first time – targets Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) for its support for terrorism.

    In recent weeks Iranian officials have warned that naming the IRGC a terror-sponsoring group could lead to violence, with armed forces chief Maj. Gen. Mohammad Hossein Baqeri saying the move “would be a big risk to the U.S. and its bases and forces stationed in the region.”

    For years congressional critics of the Iranian regime have sought to have the IRGC punished for sponsoring terrorism, either by being listed as a “foreign terrorist organization” (FTO) or via designation under a post-9/11 tool designed to disrupt funding to terrorists, Executive Order 13224.

    In 2007, President George W. Bush designated the IRGC’s external arm, the Qods Force (IRGC–QF), under E.O. 13224 for providing support to terrorists in Lebanon, the Palestinian self-rule territories and Afghanistan.

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
