US to Label Iranian Security Forces as Terrorist Group

The United States may designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist group, according to the  Wall Street Journal.

 The groundbreaking move, which could be announced as early as next week, would be the first time the U.S. labeled another country's military a terrorist organization.  Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps has a large impact on the country's operations.

It influences the Iranian economy and political system, and oversees its ballistic missiles and nuclear programs. U.S. officials have contemplated the terrorist group designation for years.

Back in 2007, they did so for the division of the group that executes international operations for "its support of terrorism," but fell short of updating the designation for the entire security force.

Iran has previously warned of a "crushing" response should the U.S. go through with the change.

A senior Iranian lawmaker said the country may respond by putting the U.S. on its terrorist list.

Opinions in the U.S. have been split — with some officials praising the move and others warning of the impact it could have on U.S. troops in the region.

Additional reporting by Reuters.
