Nasrallah Slams U.S. Blacklisting Of IRGC, Says Washington Moves Will Not Remain Without a Response

Lebanese Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah slammed the U.S. decision to designate the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist group, saying that Washington’s “audacity and folly” went beyond limits.

“Blacklisting the IRGC is an evidence that it is strong and not weak and this is an expected move by the Great Satan,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech commemorating the day of “Resistance Wounded Fighters” on April 10.

Earlier this week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the U.S. has blacklisted the IRGC, citing alleged terrorist activists by the Iranian group as a reason. Iran’s Supreme National Security Council retaliated to Washington’s decision by labelling the U.S. Army military as terrorist organization.

Nasrallah warned that Hezbollah and its allies from the so-called “axis of resistance” will not continue to deal with the U.S. hostile moves with “condemnation, denouncement and patience.” The Lebanese leader said the axis has other options on all battlefields.

“Our choices are open but we will act calmly, with a cool head and at the right time, in all battlefields and arenas,” said Nasrallah.

The Hezbollah leader’s warning confirms the fears of some U.S. officials, who had warned that designating the IRGC as a terrorist group could endanger U.S. troops deployed in the Middle East. Despite this some experts openly state that the administration of US President Donald Trump is moving towards an escalation scenario because it contributes to its current political interests.

    Hey Nasrallah put a 25million buck bounty on fatso’s head and I’m sure the opportunity will arise for a tit for tat. after all, whoever needs a lying thieving fatso running arund issuing fatwas on all and sundry – he’s better off in a straight jacket or locked up in den haag as a common war criminal (together with bolton and netanyahu).

    I’m sure there is one or two in the middle east or east of there that would have the wherewithal, say type kadyrov, who could put up the bounty of say 10milion bucks on fatso’s head and ditto on bolton’s and ditto on abram’s – on the sly of course but at least enough to raise the level of interest to take out those menaces to the world.
