(CNN) -- The Iranian parliament on Saturday voted to designate the United States' Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Army as terrorist organizations, IRNA, the country's state-run news agency, reported.

The CIA and the U.S. Army "trained terrorists and supported terrorism, and they themselves are terrorists," the parliament said, according to IRNA.
The Iranian parliament said the condemnation was based on "known and accepted" standards of terrorism from international regulations, including the U.N. charter.
The parliament said it condemns the "aggressions by the U.S. Army, particularly in Iraq and Afghanistan" and calls on the United Nations to "intervene in the global problem of U.S. prisons in Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib and secret jails in other countries," IRNA reported, quoting a statement from Iranian lawmakers.
The Iranian parliament also decried the CIA's and U.S. Army's involvement in the 1945 bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II, U.S. involvement in the Balkans, Vietnam and the U.S. support of Israel.
Of the condemnation, Paul Gimigliano, a CIA spokesman, said, "There are some things that don't even deserve comment. This is one."
National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said he declined to comment "on non-binding resolutions passed by parliaments in countries with dubious records on human rights, democracy and that are state sponsors of terror."




There was no immediate response from the U.S. State Department.
Washington and U.S. military leaders have long accused Iran of training and equipping insurgents in Iraq. The United States and Iran have not had formal diplomatic relations since 1980 after Iranian militants stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and held Americans hostage for 444 days.
The Iranian lawmakers' condemnation was in apparent retaliation for the U.S. Senate's resolution Wednesday requesting that the United States designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, or Quds Force, as a foreign terrorist organization.
The Senate resolution passed a day after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the U.N. General Assembly that an agreement reached last month between his country and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over its disputed nuclear program has, in the Iranian view, settled the matter.
Iran says its nuclear program is necessary for civilian energy production. The United States and other Western nations have accused Tehran of trying to build a nuclear weapon.

Iran is in full back-pedalling mode, they must be really close to developing the bomb, because the US designation of the Islamic Revolutionary guard as a terrorist organization is a step toward war.

what did they lose???

they can name anyone in their list of terrorist organisations. if they feel that the CIA and the Army are a threat to them then they can say they are terrorists.

It's actually a good move by Iran, they wanted to see what we would do next.

the US will try to deal with Iran through the UN. they really aint got no other option. using military force isnt easy against iran, if Bush said lets go to war with Iran im pretty sure a General would slap him.

Ha.... If Bush decides...you must really be ignorant, Bush can't decide what socks to put on, the joint chiefs will really make that decision and believe me, they want to wipe them out.

Do you blame Iran for US casualties of war ^^?? What about the US providing the old Iraq regime with chemical weapons they used on Kurdish and Iranians?

It's basically that point in time where nations will begin to be held accountable for their actions.

I dont think The U.S would go to war with iran, they got one to worry about thats already gone from bad to worse. The US and Iran are playing mind games with each other, looking for the first one to budge.
