Iran's Guards: We'll 'Punch' US

With the United States planning to add Iran's Revolutionary Guards to our list of terrorist groups, the Guards aren't backing down at all. In fact, they are as belligerent and defiant as always, Nasser Karimi reports from Tehran for the Associated Press:


Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards said they would not bow to pressure and threatened to "punch" the U.S., in their first response to Washington's plan to list them as a terrorist organization, newspapers reported Saturday.

Local press in the Iranian capital of Tehran quoted Revolutionary Guards leader Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi saying that he could understand Washington's ire toward the group because of their "leverage" against the U.S.

"America will receive a heavier punch from the guards in the future," he was quoted as saying in the conservative daily Kayhan. "We will never remain silent in the face of U.S. pressure and we will use our leverage against them."

There was no elaboration on what Safavi meant by the punch or the organization's "leverage."


Read the rest at the link above. The Iranian radicals have been declaring war on us for nearly thirty years. They invaded our sovereign embassy in 1979, were sponsors of the Beirut Marine barracks bombing in 1993 and the Khobar Towers bombing in 1996, to name a few of their many overt acts of war, not to mention the clear trail back to them from forces killing Americans in Iraq.

The problem isn't that the mad Iranian Islamists declare war on us. The problem is we just won't take them at their word - OR deeds.

Naturally, most Democratic candidates for President see a need for more "dialog" with Iran - which essentially consists of our expressing our willingness to let bygones be bygones and our desire to forge a productive relationship while they call us the "Great Satan" and threaten our lives.

Here is where the Kucinich and Edwards supporters deride me for underestimating the power of a good hug.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards... (Below threshold)
marc:

Iran's Revolutionary Guards have always been a somewhat of a renegade group who I suspect operate much of the time on there own without Tehran's complete approval.

I spent many thousands of hours patrolling with the US and Allied Maritime Interception Force. The MIF tracked and arrested if possible the smugglers of Iraqi oil during the sanctions regiem.

The smugglers would come out of the Shat-al-Arab and hug the Iranian coast all the way to the Straits of Hormuz then attempt to skate across to Oman of the UAE.

95 plus percent of the time the smugglers had obtained phony papers from the IRG, and not so incidentally, paid thousands of dollars for them and in some cases off loaded oil as payment.

Justrand:

It is absolutely true that Iran has every right, as a sovererign nation, to pursue its national interests in whatever manner it chooses. That, or course, does not make either their "manner" of pursuing those interests...or the interests themselves...right!

When nations declare their interests in conflict with others, and then ACT on those conflicting interests, war is a very common result. In this case Iran has declared itself the rightful ruler of the Muslim world, which pretty much means the entire world by their definition (choose any handful of AhmaNutJob's speeches as evidence). And they have chosen the export of terrorism as their manner of acting on their self-described "interests".

All that said, it is OUR (and others) right to resist both the manner of Iran's actions and the declared intent of it: world domination.

As with Hitler (whom AhmaNutJob has declared innocent of any wrong-doing in WWII) the Iranians will continue to test for weakness and exploit it. Hitler didn't encounter true resistence to his lust for power until he reached the English Channel in the West and Stalingrad in the East.

It is well past time to provide Iran with at least a taste of the consequences of its actions. Well past.

I'm sure if he was here now he'd tell you where to shove your snide comments, in true Navy terminology, but since he isn't, and I am, I shall take the liberty of doing so myself.

If you'd bother to read his other comments, you'd find some interesting information. Such as the fact that he is retired from the Navy.

In short, he's done his service to the nation.

So let me ask you, what have you done for your nation, short of sitting around sniping on blogs?

Remember, it was a Democrat (and an honest-to-God Navy hero, unlike Lt. Kerry) who said, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

You're just having self doubts about your relationship with God, aren't you jfo? Starting to worry that if you're wrong there is a special place in the after world for you? And it's HOT?

Why don't you lay off? You're making a fool of yourself. All you're doing is low-level Christian mocking. You're not certain enough to just come right out and say it, so you use soft targets and attack obliquely.

I'm sick and tired of the utterly simplistic answer so many of you on the right have to an incredibly complex problem.

And I'm tired of people like you taking simple problems and trying to make them something more complex than they are or need to be.

IMO, it's usually out of a need to install oneself as somehow more sophisticated and nuanced than us simple rubes.

In reality, making simple problems into complex issues has caused us more problems than they have solved.

Furthermore, ignoring simple problems, or diplomacizing them, only emboldens those who wish to harm us.

The only reason Iran and those yuthead IRG's are talking so tough is because they know it will cow people like you jfo. They don't need to lift a finger or fire a shot. All they have to do is talk you out of a fight.

It saddens me the far right wing here still thinks more military action will solve anything. Indeed, chastising, attempting to humiliate Iran has so far worked wonders the last few decades too.

Iraq is going so well under the right wing, so sure, lets expand operations and invade yet another country. ( even though we can't as we've now run our military capacity to do much of anything into the ground, ) I'm sure in magic fantasy land it won't radicalize a rather liberal minded hugely young population to guarantee another generation will hate us and extend theocratic rule there a few more years.

Their president won't be there much longer, neither will ours. The Republicans, as per usual, have squandered the previous chances to help foster the aspirations for the Iranian people. Yup, pissing them off and reinforcing the old regimes fears is a much better way to go .

Remember, the Iraqis were going to welcome us as liberators, showering us with flowers. How naive do you really think people will continue to be?

You are wrong Kim. You have had more than 4 years to be proven right, and you're still grasping.

Don't waste your time kim. "reagan" is a lying bit of bluff-fluff, and anything it says is calibrated to "mortify" on its interblogactic phazer. If there is a serious person out there, arguing from the left, he doesn't exist, because I've never seen him, and as any good lefty will tell, we are the center of the universe, so anything that we are unaware of, does not exist. Face it, a serious arguement from the left would actually be - Dut-Dut-Dut-Daaa!- from the right - by definition. So you see, allowing these people to think that they actually exist is the only thing that's keeping them around. Like a bunch of angry ghosts who refuse to accept the reality that they are dead, they keep clanging their chains and screaming, "Look at me! Listen to me, I am not a FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!" Just let 'em drift off into the ether - where they belong.

If however they amuse you, by all means, carry on. Making fools of the foolish is a well established American pastime, and one can't fault you for it. (if you've read my back and forth with LAB on another post here, please disregard the above, as it may appear to be hypocritical to the untrained eye) I really gotta proof myself more therowly, sheesh.

This is folly. Iran stands to lose so much with such little effort from us. You'd think they'd stow the bluster for half a minute and make an attempt reign in the IRG.

Why should Iran reign in the IRG and stow the bluster? It works as a defense mechanism.

All they have to do is talk tough and play the victim and people like jfo and democrats come running to their defense.

Look at what's happening already. Democrats are already working to keep us from taking any military action against Iran.

So, for Iran, their best defense against an attack is bluster.

But then, why should the Iranians be afraid of US military might. After all, they have the stealth missile, Super duper flying stealth boat and the super fast killer torpedo.

How on Earth can we ever hope to defeat such super duper advanced technologically advanced weapons?
