Linux Fedora 19 - iptables failed to start

I've been attempting to start the iptables firewall program solution, yet it maintains falling short. What is failing?

# systemctl status iptables.service
iptables.service - IPv4 firewall with iptables
  Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/iptables.service; enabled)
  Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Sat 2013-10-26 11:01:54 CDT; 41s ago
 Process: 2114 ExecStart=/usr/libexec/iptables/iptables.init start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
