US To Declare Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps Terrorist Organization

Karzai and Ahmadinejad
ISNA

(Best Syndication) The Bush administration is preparing to declare Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps a foreign terrorist organization, according to a report from the New York Times. The Guard is a branch of the countries military, but is separate from the regular Army, Navy, and Air Force. It is estimated that the Corp controls 11 million basij militia members in Iran.

The Times did not say this was the first step towards war with the Persian nation, which has more than twice the population of Iraq, but the declaration would serve two purposes. The action would “pacify, for a while, administration hawks who are pushing for possible military action, and to further press America’s allies to ratchet up sanctions against Iran in the Security Council.”

Bush and Georgian President
Mikhail Saakashvili

(Best Syndication) Although Russia denies the accusation, the Republic of Georgia presented evidence today that a Russian warplane had entered deep into its airspace and fired an air-to-ground missile. The missile did not explode and no one injured, but Georgia is still seeking a special session of the United Nations Security Council to address the incident.

The country of Georgia says they have a “mounting body of evidence” and claims the Russians are not being forthright concerning the missile which struck near Tsitelubani, a village about 30 miles from Tbilisi, the Georgian capital. This is the second missile to strike Georgia in a year. The Russians claim that Georgia attacked themselves.
