In the light of the announced NCRI press conference to expose the IRGC’s terrorist training camps, it is important to shed light on the actions of the Iranian regime that earns them a place on the US blacklist. The latest addition to the crimes committed by the IRGC is a missile test. Iran is strictly forbidden to have any missiles that can carry a nuclear warhead but Iran disregards those sanctions and is developing and testing missiles anyway.
The US reactions on this breach of agreement was that of sharp condemnation and described the action as provocative and irresponsible. The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, say this is absolutely unacceptable and we will act accordingly….. we will be loud. The State Departments Spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement on Tuesday that the US is well aware of and deeply troubled by Iran’s longstanding provocative and irresponsible activities. He also added that it would be wise of Iran to fully implement UN resolution 2231. Which is not part of the nuclear deal but “calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”
The US reaction to this action from the Iranian regime must be hard and unmistakable. The regime and their mercenaries IRGC must be blacklisted.
The IRGC’s acts of terror are still growing they have no respect for human life or rights and must be treated accordingly. It is important that IRGC is put on the blacklist but just as important to sanction any deals with Iran. There must be no loopholes in the sanctions and the punishment on those who strikes a deal with Iran must be severe. It is of utmost importance that the crimes of the IRGC are exposed and that there will be consequences.
According to Al Arabia staff writer, the new administration in Washington is considering new sanctions on Iran because of their actions in Iraq, and Syria and causing instability in the whole middle east region. It is said they are studying several aspects for the sanctions, which one includes the Iran’s Islamic revolutionary guards corps and their meddling in other countries in the region. It is also said that there will be a proposition of putting the IRGC on the list of terrorist organisations alongside the Muslim brotherhood. The next step may be to impose sanctions on Iran for its support to some terrorist groups. The official added the White House could revoke the nuclear deal to punish Tehran for its support to groups in the middle east such as the Lebanon’s Hezbollah and the Houthis in Yemen besides other Shiite organisations in Iraq.
The Iranian resistance welcomes new sanctions on the Iranian regime. While the NCRI welcomes the new sanctions, the need for additional sanctions on the IRGC and other entities involved in suppression, terrorism and fundamentalism must be recognised
Imposing sanctions is a step in the right direction to confront the illegitimate and terrorist dictatorship that is responsible for 120 000 political executions. It is imperative that comprehensive sanctions be imposed on the IRGC, its affiliated entities, the Iranian ministry of intelligence, and other entities involved in suppression and export of terrorism
