Designating the IRGC a Necessary, But Insufficient Step

The Iranian mullahs’ mantra – and policy – has been for nearly four decades, “Death to America.”

Realizing their ambition to destroy our country and people has been a prime task of General Qasem Soleimani, (the commander of Quds Force affiliated to the) Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

President Trump rightly declared Soleimani’s IRGC to be a terrorist organization last week since the blood of many American servicemen, diplomats, and citizens is on his hands.

This jihadist general is in the vanguard of the mullahs’ bid to kill millions of us with nuclear weapons and to wipe out our friends and allies in the Mideast. From Yemen to Lebanon, Soleimani’s IRGC has been on the march and it’s now crushing the pro-American Kurds seeking independence from Iraq.

The mullahs’ success is one of Barack Obama’s most dangerous legacies. It is being advanced, however, on Donald Trump’s watch.
