The Iranian Revolutionary Guard have taken over the Iran's following the massive protests regarding the disputed presidential election. Leaders of the elite unit had publicly acknowledged their new found duty.
Late last night, Iranian Revolutionary Guard officials warned Mir-Hossein Mousavi and his supporters that there is no middle ground over the disputed election and the Mahmound Ahmadinejad was reelected as the nation's president.
Meanwhile, the guard's commander in chief, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, warned Western leaders against exploiting the nation's political turmoil for their own ends.
The warning came after Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the United States would not stop an attack on Iran's nuclear weapons facilities by Israel.
Many in Iran are bracing for a new wave of protests this Thursday, which would mark the 10th anniversary on an attack on Tehran University's dormitories by the government.
