Now, we move against Iran

In an interesting way. From Pat Dollard - U.S. To Designate Revolutionary Guards A Terrorist Organization.
  • The United States has decided to designate Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, the country’s 125,000-strong military branch, as a “specially designated global terrorist,” according to U.S. officials, a move that allows Washington to target the group’s business operations and finances.

    The Bush administration has chosen to move against the Revolutionary Guard Corps because of what U.S. officials describe as the group’s growing involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as its support for extremists throughout the Middle East, the sources said. The decision follows congressional pressure on the administration to toughen its stance against Tehran as well as U.S. frustration with the ineffectiveness of U.N. resolutions against Iran’s nuclear program, officials said.

That will be the first national military branch to be put on the list. I'm not sure how affective this will be, but it has to be annoying as hell to the Mullahs.
