Iran hard-liners, pragmatists show unity against Trump

Individuals and entities associated with the IRGC are already on the US list of foreign terrorist organizations but the organization as a whole is not

Rouhani cautioned against the repercussions of a planned move by the USA to designate the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group, saying the IRGC is popular not only in Iran but also in regional countries, Tasnim News reported.

"The Guards are the defender of the nation", government spokesman Mohammad Bagher Nobakht told reporters.

Only days remain until U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to roll out a more aggressive plan for containing Iran, including the fate of a favorite punching bag: the 2015 nuclear deal. "If the U.S. wants to put the Guards on the terrorist list, it puts itself in the camp of terrorists".

He added that the U.S. would have to move its military bases outside the 2,000km range of Iran's missiles.

Ali Akbar Velayati, a top Iranian offical, appeared to suggest military options were being considered.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesperson Bahram Qasemi said on Monday that Tehran would give a "firm, decisive and crushing" response if the United States goes ahead with such a plan.

"Diplomatic language is different to the language of defence forces but the content and the objective is the same", Jafari said.

He said: "If the news is correct about the stupidity of the American government in considering the Revolutionary Guards a terrorist group, then the Revolutionary Guards will consider the American Army to be like ISIS all around the world, particularly in the Middle East". "Of course some measures have been planned which we will announce in due time", he added.

Trump is expected to "decertify" a landmark 2015 deal Iran struck with world powers to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of most worldwide sanctions.

"We are not afraid of the USA measures, " Rouhani said in the weekly cabinet meeting. "That is why we must put an end to Iran's continued aggression and nuclear ambitions", Trump told senior United States military officials on October 5. "It is time to teach them a new lesson".

"It seems the Trump administration understands only swear words, and needs some shocks to understand the new meaning of power in the world", said Iranian armed forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri, who is also a Revolutionary Guards commander.

President Hassan Rouhani of Iran on Wednesday warned that the United States would be the loser if President Donald Trump decides to drop Iran's worldwide nuclear deal.
