I’ve been saying this for some time now, as well as other observant voices, that the southern border with Mexico is ripe for Heznazi exploitation, it’s just a matter of timing and opportunity. Iranian ties to the Venezuelan kingpin, Hugo Chavez is well known, the infrastructure is there, waiting to be called upon, smart US lawmakers have been banging the drum about this, but the dolts who control the the actual levers of power have not been heeding their warnings. Why is it that something has to happen before government begins to act?

(CNSNews.com) – The Iranian-supported Shi’ite terrorist group Hezbollah has spread its influence all the way to the U.S. border with Mexico, a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Iran’s influence in the Western Hemisphere heard on Thursday.
Michael Braun, a former chief of operations at the Drug Enforcement Agency, said Hezbollah had developed relationships with the powerful Mexican drug cartels to “move their agenda forward.” He cited a plot, recently uncovered by the DEA, involving an Iranian operative in Mexico allegedly planning to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington, D.C.
“Hezbollah are absolute masters at forming close relationships with existing organized crime groups around the world that helps them facilitate what they need to do to move their agendas forward,” Braun told CNSNews.com following the hearing. “And if anyone thinks for a moment that they don’t have their eye on the southwest border and all of our country, then they couldn’t be more wrong.”
