US determined to placate Iran despite its many provocations
There is talk today about the possibility of the US removing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from its list of designated foreign terrorist organizations, which would be an important victory for Tehran despite its previous ability to circumvent the restrictions on the IRGC with great flexibility.
The US last year removed the Houthis from its terror list despite the fact the militia had turned against the people and government of Yemen and eroded the identity of the state. It has also carried out terrible crimes inside Yemen, from recruiting children to stealing aid and systematic assassinations, while rejecting all attempts at mediation. It has humiliated the people to the point of depriving them of health treatment and educational services. The terrorist Houthis have also allied themselves with Al-Qaeda via a deal to release the latter’s leaders who were detained in Yemeni prisons.
