Rick Francona has a great article "Nose Under the Tent- Iranian Missiles in Venezuela" outlining the inherent threat of Iranian intermediate range ballistic missiles in South America... Even if they don't directly threaten the United States at the moment. Our allies, and the Territory of Puerto Rico are indeed threatened. Thats not the end of it either, in fact thats just the beginning, once the door is open to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps into the Americas; with our porous Southern Border, what is going to stop them from direct action against the United States? Reading about the IRGC, they are just as capable and deadly as any state intelligence agency... Backed by Islamo-Fascist leadership, we can imagine the terror they will bring with them.
Chavez working with North Korea and Iran is our biggest enemy in this decade. Currently, Chavez is securing himself more power prior to elections by using his new decree powers to take care of flood damage, by-passing parliamentary procedure and blaming the National Assembly of not caring for the people (who elected them...). In an effort to appear to want to stop drug traffic, Chavez has had is force arrest about 12,000 people on drug charges. While on the surface this is an improvement, it is my personal feeling that these people were only arrested because they aren't part of the state sponsored traffic network supporting FARC in Columbia and Chavez's interests in that countries civil war (attacking a US ally in the region).
Nobody should be surprised by these developments, as Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea are very studious in their analysis of American politics and have smelled the blood in the water so to speak with how weak our government currently is with foreign policy. No longer do they have to fear military repercussions for taking increasingly aggressive actions; our nation only wants to 'engage in diplomacy', which means old men (and women) standing around sipping champaign and eating caviar speaking in innuendo while young men spill their blood on the field of battle treated as pawns while the hordes 'migrate' and the terrorists come through with them. The connection has been obvious since 2005 for many of us, and signs where there prior to that. North Korea and Iran have been working close together for decades, especially after the Carter Administration and the Islamic Revolution in Iran created a 'rogue' state. While Russia's support to Iran has been more tacit and more along the lines of Surface to Air Missile (SAM) systems and done so to weaken any US/Israeli response, they have also put pressure on Iran regarding their nuclear program at the same time (due the threat of another nuclear armed country in close proximity to Moscow...). However, North Korea and Iran actively share technology and work together to develop and deploy missiles, along with nuclear weapons. When one does their research, they will find Iran developing home made copies of North Korean weapon systems, and more than likely they are encouraged to do so and share some of the improvements with North Korea. Now, we have the connection with Venezuela...
Current tensions between North Korea and South Korea lead me to believe they are being instigated to test a US response to a possible Korean Ceasefire collapse. For the first time in decades, North Korea is beginning to believe, rightfully so I'm afraid, that they can win the war on the Korean Peninsula. With their allies in the Middle East and in the Americas now, its likely they can very close, especially under the Obama Administration and their obsession with a broken concept of diplomacy and United Nations 'global community' response. North and South Korea exist as two nations because of such foolish notions by Harry Truman and the world in 1953 (Truman should have listened to MacArthur!).
