A foreign policy decision that took real courage to make.

The first sentence of the article speaks for itself (embedded hyperlinks removed):
The United States has decided to designate Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, the country's 125,000-strong elite military branch, as a "specially designated global terrorist," according to U.S. officials, a move that allows Washington to target the group's business operations and finances.
All summer, we've been hearing reports that Iran is sending support to the Iraqi insurgency. Now we're finally ramping up the pressure on Iran to cut it out. Contrast this with the Obama Doctrine of "Protect our enemies. Invade our allies."

I'd like to think I'll be proven wrong with this, but my prediction is that the Democratic Presidential candidates are going to denounce this decision with varying degrees of vehemence. Their Left-wing base isn't going to like measures that threaten the "revolution", after all.
