While the media and the Democrat Party are circling the wagons to protect the reputation of MS-13 after President Trump referred to them as “animals”, there’s a story the media is certainly aware of but for some strange reason, is unwilling to disclose to the American public. It’s the story of a very an even more dangerous alliance between two ruthless groups who are working together to wage war against the United States. Meanwhile, Democrats continue to fight tooth and nail to prevent President Trump from securing our southern border, while Sanctuary Cities in America are harboring some of the world’s most dangerous people.
Al Arabiya News tells a frightening story of what’s really happening on the other side of our weak border walls, and its a story that every American needs to know about.
Now that Donald Trump has pulled America out of the Iran deal, he must remember that close to home, he is being faced across the Mexican border by Hezbollah, one of the deadliest non-state adversaries to threaten the US in recent times, a terror group that is a solid proxy of the Iranian regime.
Hezbollah cadres stepped in to train drug cartel “street soldiers” in the construction of sophisticated explosive devices, urban warfare, ambushing techniques, sniping, and the creation of sophisticated tunnels for which to enter the US, of the type it had perfected in Gaza, and along the Lebanon-Israel border to thwart Israeli patrols.
Los Zetas of Mexico
Where Hezbollah’s involvement in Mexico is concerned, it gives it a firm base in a country that spans four US states, and six of its own, containing forty-five Mexico/US crossings, with 330 ports of entry, along a border that is close to 2,000 miles long.
As far as Hezbollah is concerned, not only has it had a presence in Latin America since the mid-1980s, but much of its activities are confined to areas where local law enforcement agencies are powerless to counter their infiltration, including a swathe of land known as the Tri-Border area, where Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay meet.
In this ungoverned region, where bribing government officials and law officers is the norm, with their power superseding local government, through the wielding of vast amounts of illicit drugs cash, numerous terrorist and narco gangs coexist, using the area as a base for their operations. So, with the myriad of smuggling routes, Hezbollah has opened across South America, plus its strategic alliance with the Mexican mafia, and its numerous sleeper cells set up across the US.
Iran’s proxy group now has the ability to smuggle anything across the Mexican border, including drugs, weapons, and if deemed necessary, chemical agents or biological weapons, which have the potential to create mass death tolls in major US cities. But what has always endeared Iran to certain Latin American countries, is the fact that they share the same anti-US sentiment and policies, and like Iran, want to put an end to American expansion wherever it may appear, using whatever means they have at their disposal.
For years now, evidence has been mounting on how deeply involved Hezbollah is in drug trafficking in Latin America. With Iran having 11 embassies across the area, it has made it much easier for Hezbollah to operate there, as with Hezbollah’s activities being closely involved with Iran’s IRGC Quds Force, all of Hezbollah’s Lebanon-based agents operating there, are aided by a myriad of Iran’s secret service agents, who operate from within Iranian embassies under the guise of diplomats. Illegal drug trafficking doesn’t just make millionaires out of narco-gangsters, it also finances terror groups, and from intelligence gleaned by the CIA, it has been established that through a Colombian-based network, part of the money to finance the attack on New York’s World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, came from drug-related activity.
At the present time, South America is very important to Hezbollah. With Iran having felt the pinch from international sanctions for many years, it had cut down the terror group’s funding, which had been helping to train and direct its terror operations, and which had only resumed again after the group had obtained vast amounts of cash, from the billions returned to the Iranian regime for “complying” to the Iran deal.
‘Multi-million-dollar crime empire’
So, with Donald Trump pulling out of the Iran deal, it is certain to leave the Iranian regime billions of dollars poorer, especially as new sanctions kick in. Hezbollah has always been prepared for this, in the setting up of its multi-million-dollar crime empire, and knowing, how in the future, it might not be able to rely on its Iranian paymasters, the need to become more self-sufficient will become even greater.
With this being the case, it makes the Mexican mafia crucial allies, as dealing in drugs can bring in multi-millions for Hezbollah, plus they get the chance of arming the enemies of the US within its borders, and at the same time, are given the opportunity to build up bases from which to strike the Americans on their home ground.
As early as 2003, the then CIA director George Tenet had testified before Congress, stating that 12 Hezbollah cells had been identified operating in the US, and were conducting surveillance operations.
If you add this to 2011 Congressional Research report, reporting that Hezbollah cells were known to be present in 15 US cities, including Huston and Nashville, with Hezbollah having become even more entrenched since that time, how many more cities now contain active cells ready to strike?
