President Trump on Monday designated a powerful Iranian military arm as an international terrorist organisation. This bold move that could also raise the risk of retaliation against our military is the first time the United States had named a part of another country’s government as such a threat.
But despite the widespread criticism from the Liberal media networks, the question remains as to whether the unprecedented act of the President is justified. The answer ofcourse is a big resounding Yes…
The said military group has carried out several devastating operations across the middle east, they were involved in the training of Arab Shiites which is a well known militia. So President Trump has once again done the right thing and should be given a full support by the Pentagon.
In a statement issued on Monday, President Trump said “The designation underscores the fact that Iran’s actions are fundamentally different from those of other governments, this action will significantly expand the scope and scale of our maximum pressure on the Iranian regime. It makes crystal clear the risks of conducting business with, or providing support to, the I.R.G.C.”
This action is set to impose wide-range economic as well as travel sanctions on the military group as well as companies and businesses that have ties to the military unit. The state department has said in the statement that this action will take effect from the 15th of April, 2019.
In a retaliatory statement, the Iran Supreme National Security council has designated the United states central Command as a terrorist organisation. The command is the part of the United states military that oversees operations in the middle East.
This latest move by the President has once again proven that unlike Barack Obama who funneled billions of dollars to Iran, knowing quite well the terrorism threat they possess, President Trump is set to right those wrongs by taking a strong and bold move against terrorism.
