Intelligence Report: Iran Will Use Latin America to Attack US, Israel
Arutz Sheva ^ | Published: 04/20/09, 2:06 PM | by Malkah Fleisher

Posted on 04/20/2009 3:28:31 PM PDT by lewisglad

Just two days after US President Barack Hussein Obama shared a controversial and landmark handshake with Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez at the Summit of the Americas, the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center has released a study analyzing the flowering alliance between the increasingly anti-Western Latin America and the virulently anti-Israel Iran.

The study was conducted at the Israel Intelligence Heritage & Commemoration Center (IICC), a non-governmental organization dedicated to Israeli intelligence and terrorism issues.

According to the study, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is using anti-Western Hugo Chavez as a springboard into several Latin American countries, such as Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Ecuador, where he intends to establish a religious, terrorist, political and economic foothold in South America. Iran has already made major inroads in its relationship with Venezuela and Bolivia, largely based on shared anti-American sentiments.

Iran will utilize this developing relationship to challenge the United States, parts of Asia, and Africa, said the study.

The Islamic Republic will also leverage petrodollars and Muslim operatives positioned throughout key Latin American countries to implement a radical anti-Western agenda, fight America's anti-nuclear policy, and to slash international economic sanctions according to the IICC.

In addition, the report warns that Iran may launch anti-American and anti-Israel terror attacks through intelligence and terror networks in South American countries.

Khomeini-inspired Shi'ite Islamic and Iranian revolutionary propaganda is being exported by Iran into non-Muslim and Muslim communities in Latin America, in large part through its terror proxy, Hizbullah, which is raising funds for operation by uniting with South American drug and crime cartels.

The IICC report cites several U.S. intelligence and military officials expressing concern over rising Iranian activity in Latin America, and increasing numbers of converts in the region to Islam.

Yes, they will!

This ain't Obama country where the third world lover gets to dictate how people defend their family. I don't think anyone is going to be standing around waiting for 'help' from Obamaland.

Hopey, Changey, Pukey.

In 1994 Hizbollah, under the direction of Iran, bombed the Jewish Community Center in what most consider the worst terrorist attack in the hemisphere until 9/11. It overshadowed a simultaneous attack on a Panamanian private plane that killed a dozen Jews, and the carbombing of the Israeli Embassy in London a few days later. The same Hizbollah under Iranian diraction that attacked our Embassy and Marine barracks in Beirut.

All that's changed is that Hamas is now active in the hemisphere as well.

We ignore these threats at our own risk.

BTW, when they say they'll use Latin America to attack the US they mean it, when they say Israel, they mean Jews.

quite a long time ago, obama proudly claimed to know the difference between shia and sunni...and with every step he takes he now identifies to which sect of the cult he belongs.

[2009] Russia, China plan new joint military exercises

By MARTIN SIEFF, UPI Senior News Analyst
Published: March 26, 2009

WASHINGTON, March 26 (UPI) -- The continuing tensions over Russia's refusal to sell its state-of-the-art land warfare advanced weapons systems to China hasn't interrupted the rhythm of major joint military exercises between the two major land powers on the Eurasian landmass. The latest in the regular, biennial series of exercises between the two nations has been confirmed for this summer.

The next in the now well-established series of exercises called Peace Mission 2009 will be carried out in northeastern China, the Russian Defense Ministry announced March 18, according to a report carried by the RIA Novosti news agency.

The first bilateral Peace Mission maneuvers -- described at the time as counter-terrorism exercises -- were held in Russia and the eastern Chinese province of Shandong in August 2005. As we reported at that time, they were a lot bigger than mere counter-terrorism exercises. Warships, squadrons of combat aircraft and more than 10,000 troops were involved carrying out landings against hypothetically hostile shores. The maneuvers also involved large-scale paratroops drops. The scale and nature of those exercises suggested a trial run for a possible Chinese invasion of Taiwan with Russian support. ..."

Venezuela's Chavez welcomes Russian warships
Nov 25, 2008
LA GUAIRA, Venezuela – Russian warships arrived off Venezuela's coast Tuesday in a show of strength aimed at the United States as Moscow seeks to expand its influence in Latin America. The deployment is the first of its kind in the Caribbean since the Cold War and was timed to coincide with President Dmitry Medvedev's visit to Caracas — the first ever by a Russian president.

Russian nuclear bombers in Cuba?
July 23, 2008

The media has been abuzz today at the prospect of Russian nuclear bombers being stationed in Cuba if the US goes ahead with plans for missile defense bases in Eastern Europe.

The story has riled the US enough that a US general has been wheeled out to tell the world’s press that any Russian attempt to build another nuclear base in Cuba would cross US “red line”.

The story broke earlier this week, when Russian newspaper Izvestia quoted an un-named source from within the Russian military. He told the Russian daily:

“While they are deploying the missile shield in Poland and the Czech Republic, our strategic bombers will already be landing in Cuba.”

The quote hasn’t been independently confirmed, but the Russian Defense Ministry added fuel to the fire when they refused to comment on the story.

The prospect of Russian nuclear forces being stationed in Cuba - which is, after all, only 90 miles from the US coast - would bring back some rather unpleasant memories for the US of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, where the Soviet Union under Nikita Kruschev launched an audacious and foolhardy bid to station nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island.

That POS dog sh*t in the WH is going to cause us to be attacked. I think he is well aware of it too. I think he welcomes it as long as they give him a heads up. Ayers said we need 25 million Americans killed.

One of the programs on this Freeper link talks about Iran — and that Israel is getting ready to not only attack Iran, but I heard the person say “invade” Iran... hoo-boy!

In addition to that, one of those guys being interviewed said that Iran has terrorists in place, in the United States, ready to do mass terrorist attacks, all across the country (like hundreds of suicide bombers, everywhere) — if and when Israel attack Iran.

PHOTO CAPTION: “Picture of the week: Marxist-Shi’ite President Hugo Chavez visits Iran for the eighth time”

SNIPPET: “This week, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez visited Iran for the eighth time in several years. Chavez met with President Ahmadinejad and with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. Several agreements were signed between the two countries during the visit, including an agreement to export 20 thousand oil barrels worth 800 million dollars from Venezuela to Iran.

On his last day in Iran, President Chavez surprisingly joined President Ahmadinejad on a visit to the grave of Imam Reza in Mashhad, declaring that some day Jesus and the twelfth imam (“the hidden imam”) would return and establish true justice in the world. President Ahmadinejad said that Chavez’s presence at the grave of the eighth imam in Mashhad indicated the depth of the shared beliefs between the two peoples and the two governments in Iran and Venezuela (Fars, September 6).”
