 Russian media: The United States classifies the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization to show its goodwill to Israel


Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guard is considered to be Irans most elite and loyal armed force, which directly obeys the supreme leader of Iran. Like the regular army, it also has the army, air force and navy. Reuters said on the 9th that the Revolutionary Guard, founded after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, had great influence in Irans political system and controlled a large number of economic wealth and armed forces. For example, the Revolutionary Guard was responsible for Irans ballistic missile and nuclear projects. Former U.S. officials said that previous U.S. governments had also considered listing the entire Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization, but had not implemented it for fear of exposing the U.S. military to too much risk overseas.

Russias Viewpoint 9 analysis said that the Trump government at this time listed the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization in order to achieve several purposes: first, to express support to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu; second, to strive for a more severe blow to the Iranian economy; third, to weaken the influence of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard on the situation in Syria, to prevent the Syrian government from further controlling the situation.

Trumps latest decision has set a dangerous precedent for Iran. CNNs article on this topic argues that Trumps governments approach has no effect on restricting the malicious activities of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, because Iran has been severely sanctioned by the United States, and some senior officers of the Revolutionary Guard are on the U.S. sanctions list. But it may turn the activities of many ordinary Iranians and foreign tourists into crimes because the Revolutionary Guard penetrates all aspects of the Iranian economy and it is difficult for people not to deal with it. According to the article, if the Trump government finds it easy to avoid dealing with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, it is suggested to ask Trumps enterprises first. The New Yorker previously reported that the Trump Group had worked with a family associated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to build a building in Azerbaijani.

Some senior U.S. military commanders have long opposed listing the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization because they fear that U.S. forces in the Middle East may be countered. In an interview with Iranian media on the 8th, Iranian Vice Foreign Minister Arak warned that classifying the Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization has violated Irans red line and that the Revolutionary Guard is the armed force responsible for guarding the security of the Persian Gulf. After such a decision by the United States, new incidents may occur in the Persian Gulf. The decision does not mean that the U.S. military will begin to treat the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as it does Al Qaeda, the Islamic State or other radical groups, Reuters said Wednesday, citing unnamed U.S. officials. However, the report also quoted Jason Brazakis, a former State Department official, as saying that the U.S. approach could lead the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to relax its restrictions on Iraqi Shiite militias, and that Iran could ask them to take action on American assets in Baghdads Green Zone and other places.
