A Syrian arms dealer was caught providing Marxist insurgent group F.A.R.C. with military grade weaponry including RPGs and surface to air missiles. More ominously the deal included the promise of trainers from Lebanon who would travel to Columbia to train the Communist insurgents. The Syrians’ alliance with Hezbollah makes it obvious who these trainers would be.
Hezbollah is already active in neighboring Venezuela and HMJ from Western Hemisphere Policy Watch reports that the tactics of Islamist terror groups, specifically beheadings, have been observed in Mexico. As more and more Militant Islamic groups strengthen their operational capabilities in South America, often with the help of Latin American leftists, the United States becomes less and less secure.
