Hezbollah is right over our border and has been setting up shop in Mexico for 10 to 15 years. How could this tie into more gun control for the US? I'll get to that later on.
Terrorist Group Setting Up Operations Near Border
Hezbollah Considered To Be More Advanced Than Al-Qaida
SAN DIEGO -- A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle East has established another home base across the border in Mexico.The article goes on to say that Hezbollah works with the drug cartels for cash and protection:
"They are recognized by many experts as the 'A' team of Muslim terrorist organizations," a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.
The former agent, referring to Shi'a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, "They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings."
Now, the group is blending into Shi'a Muslim communities in Mexico, including Tijuana. Other pockets along the U.S.-Mexico border region remain largely unidentified as U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on the drug trade.Some of that "expertise" is in building more sophisticated tunnels between Mexico and the United States.
"They have had clandestine training in how to live in foreign hostile territories," the agent said.
The agent, who has spent years deep undercover in Mexico, said Hezbollah is partnering with drug organizations, but which ones is not clear at this time.
He told 10News the group receives cartel cash and protection in exchange for Hezbollah expertise.
Americans don't hear much about Hezbollah's activites so close to our border. This is because Hezbollah keeps a low profile in order not to jeopardize their operations. Their ultimate goal is to infiltrate into, and radicalize, America's Muslim communities.
According to the agent, the organization sees the U.S. as their "cash cow," with illegal drug and immigration operations. Many senior Hezbollah leaders are wealthy businessmen, the agent said.And what is the Obama Administration doing to protect America?
"The money they are sending back to Lebanon is too important right now to jeopardize those operations," he said.The agent said the real concern is the group's long-term goal of radicalizing Muslim communities."They're focusing on developing … infiltrating communities within North America," the agent told 10News.
Roger Rufe, Director of Operations Department of Homeland Security says the National Guard or Army would be called only as a last resort.
And what has to happen before the "last resort" is reached? Does it include tighter gun control in America?
One lawmaker suggested Thursday that tighter gun control and drug enforcement inside the U.S. also were needed to stem the violence.I don't know, but it seems to me that the Obama Administration is willing to let the violence on the Mexican-US Border escalate to the point where a "crisis" may make it "necessary" to take our 2nd Amendment Rights away. Not only that, are they helping the "crisis" along with programs like this?
"The United States and Mexico border violence can only be solved if we look at all parts of the equation," Rep. John F. Tierney (D-Mass.) said. "Let's examine our gun laws, let's cut down on U.S. drug consumption, let's ask there to be more resources to root out drug money laundering."
It wasn't my intention when I started to write this post to travel off into a different direction, but it just seems sometimes things start to weave themselves together. Don't put it past the Obama Administration to take a problem like Hezbollah on the Mexico-US Border to be a reason for taking our gun rights away.
Is the Obama Administration trying to play down the dangers on the border as it prepares for the "last resort" crisis? Janet Napolitano is planning a new border control process just in time for the 2012 election cycle. It's being developed to combat GOP “false and unsupported claims” that the southwest border is “wracked by violence” and inundated by waves of so-called “spill over violence” from Mexico’s drug wars. That should make us all feel safe and secure.
The GOP Presidential nominee, whoever it is, must make border security a top issue. Radical Islam is working it's way into America over that border and this reality must be faced head on. The time for political correctness and fear is over. The time for looking the other way and kicking the can down the road is over. The time for the Obama Administration to create a "crisis" is over. Our national security and our lives depend on it.
Oh, one more thing about gun control. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY04) is introducing a new gun control bill. This bill may have been triggered by another "crisis"...but hey, whatever it takes.
