Hat Tip to LC Mrs. M ITT™ for the linky love.

Not that it should come as a surprise to any of our loyal readers, Iran has always been and continues to be the real puppet-masters of the middle east Ass-Spelunkers-For-Allah™. Finally, FINALLY the Noodlespine-Roveless administration begins to turn up the heat on the Turbaned Tehran Tumblefucks.

U.S. Eyes Terror Tag For Iranian Force

The U.S. government is involved in intense discussions over naming all or part of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist group in a move that would effectively declare “open season” on the organization, a senior official told CNN.

Open Season on terrorists? Where can I get my license and is there a bag limit?

If made, the designation would come in the form of an executive order from President George W. Bush, the State Department official said.

Such a move would allow the Treasury Department to go after the finances of the group and those who do business with it.

Beautiful, a bit of a financial squeeze of Iran could go a long way to reduce the “Have AK, Will Travel” insurgency and arms supply in Iraq and Afghanistan. Definitely a “Good Thing”.

“It would basically declare open season on these guys,” the official said, adding that the move is being taken because of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) support for “all the bad actors” — insurgents in Iraq, the Taliban in Afghanistan and other terrorist groups in the Middle East like Hezbollah and Hamas.

Hezbollocks and Hamassholes too? I’m liking this even more. The Palis are only a squeeze or two away from starving anyway.

The move is “three-fourths done but the devil is in the details,” the official said. An internal decision has been made to take some action, but there is still debate on whether to designate the entire IRGC or just the elite Quds Force.

“We need to decide whether to go for the sledgehammer approach of the larger group or the laser method of just going after the Quds Force,” the official said.

C’mon W, just dig down deep, find at least one of those shriveled nads and go for the “10-Pound Sledge” approach.

Asked to comment on the reports that the Guard Corps may be named a terrorist group, National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe would only say:

“It’s not appropriate for us to discuss potential future actions. We continue to urge Iran to play a constructive role in the region, and to stop providing support to terrorist organizations.”

Don’t hold your breath on them playing along with anything, but this move might get their attention, especially if W decides to continue along with the obvious folllow-on plan to the squeeze play.

Although most in the administration wants to go for the whole group, some want to tone it down a bit to soften the anticipated criticism from European allies, the official said.

Foggy-Bottom, pin-striped, pusillanimous pus-bags are sucking their thumbs over losing their best butt buddies in the EUrinal.

For months, U.S. officials have contended that Iranian agents, from the Quds Force, are helping train and equip militants in Iraq and have been supplying armor-piercing explosively formed penetrators to insurgents that have been used against U.S. forces. Iran has denied these assertions.

Tell us something we don’t know, Skippy.

The discussions come amid increased pressure by Congress to take tougher measures against Iran, including a possible divestment campaign. According to the official, the move by the administration could blunt any action in Congress which might tie the administration’s hands.

Maybe, just MAYBE W has another card to play in the WoT.

Let’s hope this is a serious move, that’s pushed hard and fast into real policy.

    There is certainly ample evidence of Iran’s involvement in many nefarious things. It’s a bold move, but I like it. :em69:

    I vote that instead of the sledge hammer approach, we use the jack hammer approach and declare the whole Iranian goveernment a terrorist organization.

    I like the divestment idea. Let’s divest ourselves of a shitload of MOABs, cruise missile warheads and similar ordnance. The preferred method of divestment is via B-52, B-1, B-2 and submarine. Point of divestment: Teheran, Natanz and similar sites.

    Howzabout skip the middle man, and apply the crowd pleaser approach? Targets are so much easier to hit at night when they glow in the dark.

    With all the same evidence that’s been pilin’ up for the last decade, I wonder what makes this news today?

    Has someone recently sprouted a fancy set of nads?

    1) Wouldn’t it just be easier to search every vehicle coming across the Iran-Iraq border, snatch the bad guys, and pile the bodies in convenient locations, and do the same at the smuggling routes than to go to all this trouble? Iran still is claiming plausible deniability, so can we. “They’re not yours, We didn’t kill ‘em.”

    2) I’m gettin’ nervous about this whole thing considering that the Pentagon is publicly stating the draft is an open option. Rove didn’t leave to spend time with the family, he left because we’re going to go to war with Iran, and he bailed. (smart sumbitch) Unless we go to a war economy (draft, rationing, massive call up) and soon, we won’t have anyone left to fight a three front regional conflict with.

    Gee, ya think the ‘improvised’ explosives being factory engineered shaped charges marked “Made in Iran” might have finally clicked somebody’s fucking ClueMeter(TM)?

    President Bush designated Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, the country’s 125,000-strong elite military branch, as a terrorist organization, a move that allows Washington to target the group’s business operations and finances.

    The main goal of the new designation is to clamp down on the Revolutionary Guard’s vast business network, as well as on foreign companies conducting business linked to the military unit and its personnel.

    For weeks, the Bush administration has been debating whether to target the Revolutionary Guard Corps in full, or only its Quds Force wing, which U.S. officials have linked to the growing flow of explosives, roadside bombs, rockets and other arms to Shiite militias in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Quds Force also lends support to Shiite allies such as Lebanon’s Hizbullah and to Sunni movements such as Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The Revolutionary Guard Corps - with its own navy, air force, ground forces and special forces units - is a rival to Iran’s conventional troops. Its naval forces abducted 15 British sailors and marines this spring, sparking an international crisis, and its special forces armed Lebanon’s Hizbullah with missiles used against Israel in the 2006 war.

    It’s about time. I have not trusted iran for quite some time-never trust a country who’s leader is both smart and crazy :em95: It does not surprise me-the leaders have always declared the US and Israel as enemies of Islam-let’s act like it :em93:
