... But it goes even better saying it under Executive Order 13224.
The United States has decided to designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, the country's 125,000-strong elite military branch, as a "specially designated global terrorist,"
Well, somebody just had an Epiphany. Better 20 years late than never, I guess.

Of course the Washington Post being on the other side, we get the obligatory scare quotes around the T word (like so: 'Terrorist'), and we get the obligatory comment from 'some analyst' — in this case, Mr. Cirincione from the Soros funded Center for American 'Progress'(1), a highly 'objective'(1) and 'nonpartisan'(1) source, if there was any — contending that calling the Mullahs' elite thugs the 'T' word might indispose them, embarrass them in front of their friends and ruin their chances of getting their share of booze and pussy(2) next Friday night.
The administration's move could hurt diplomatic efforts, some analysts said. "It would greatly complicate our efforts to solve the nuclear issue," said Joseph Cirincione, a nuclear proliferation expert at the Center for American Progress.
"It would tie an end to Iran's nuclear program to an end to its support of allies in Hezbollah and Hamas. The only way you could get a nuclear deal is as part of a grand bargain, which at this point is completely out of reach."
See, that's the inherent flaw with hardcore defeatism: one always assume that the other party can't be moved, even before trying.

Okay, first, I'd like to know what makes Mr. Nuclear Proliferation Expert Sir think that the free world should seek a "nuclear deal" and a "grand bargain" with a bunch of theocratic loonies only looking to buy time until they can 'proliferate' at will, and wipe some countries off the map. Even if we should, it takes two to tango anyway, and the same goes for bargaining with the mad mullahs. Plus, and just like tango, the man leads and the woman follows.

Last time I looked, it's not us in the West who are wearing robes and French kissing straight guys at any occasion(3).

In addition to that, the trouble with Iran is not limited to its nuclear program. Its support to terrorists groups, and its own terrorist activity since 1979 — all under direct control of the aforementioned Revolutionary Guards — are 1) the reason why we can't tolerate a nuclear Iran, unlike, say, a Nuclear Israel, a Nuclear Switzerland or even a Nuclear Disneyland and 2) the reason why it's more than time to treat these thugs as what they simply are: State terrorists. Period, full stop, and no scare quotes required.

I know, I'm being Mr. Obvious here, but apparently there's still 'some analysts' in the audience who have not figured that out.
  1. Scare quotes mine.
  2. Oh and, this blog is destined to a mature audience, quite frankly bordering on vulgar sometimes.
  3. Though I can't vouch for Joe Cirincione and his defeatist friends, of course.

We shoot pederasts, why we haven't sent anyone over to shoot him I don't know.

Next month is Ramadan, time to start a monthly practice of having a Ham Sandwich lunch at the nearest bar. No ham? BLT will do. When you finish make sure that you breath on a muslim and comment on how good the beer and sandwich was.

It's me!

Went to log-in, right-clicked instead of left, chose "open" et voila! Yes, obviously, everybody else knew that, but me. Many thanks for the help.

Now, just in time for ICKY! Kissy-pooey ... say, isn't that the very same female-hand-shaking fella who's getting "disciplined?" Or do all these boy-squeezing mullahs look alike now?

I'd love to get some long range shooting in. I've never shot a meteric course, I was always on a standard measurment range. Maybe this guy could volunteer to stand in for a target while someone took the target out to lunch.

As far as I know US Army has always classified Revolutionary Guards as an international terrorist group. What Dept State has to say about it is clearly irrelevent, seeing as they continually try to climb in bed with Pres. Tom, Putin, Hugo, and Kim Mentally Il.

The RevGuards have proudly proclaimed there support for many terrorist groups, and continue to train, finance, and supply multiple terrorist groups.

So, why does anyone have to slap the label on them? And will that tiny label distract people from the huge banner they are holding above their heads? The one declaring their support of and believe in terrorism.

Perverted old goat needs his head double tapped.

Look at the faces of the boys in the background. Makes me ill.

Where and when was this photo taken and does anyone anyone know who the raghead old pervert might be?
