Bush's treatment of Iran irks U.S. allies
WASHINGTON --The more horrifying news in this article is that this push to call Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization represents Rice's efforts to effort to blunt arguments by Vice President Dick Cheney and his allies for air strikes on Iran!!
As President Bush escalates the United States' confrontation with Iran across a broad front, U.S. allies in Europe and the Middle East are growing worried that the steps will achieve little, but will undercut diplomacy and increase the chances of war.
The Revolutionary Guard would be the first military unit of a sovereign government ever placed on the department's list of terrorist organizations.
