    Designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as terrorists will have dire consequences

    Such overt U.S. hostility towards Iran would be the nail in the coffin of any hopes to improve ties between the two states

    According to reports, the Trump administration is considering designating Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) a terrorist organization, even as senior U.S. defense and intelligence officials have warned against such a move. Of course, the IRGC and the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) have been bitterly at odds for over three decades. In the early 1980s, after Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Iran, both forces were established and assumed responsibility for their country’s extra-territorial actions. CENTCOM’s area of responsibility ? the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia ? is in Iran’s neighborhood and overlaps with the area of responsibility of the Qods Force, the IRGC’s foreign operations wing.
