Hezbollah's Failed Mexican TV Venture and Iranian Proxies

Mexican authorities recently stopped a Hezbollah-sponsored television station from operating in the country. This adds to the troubling trend of anti-American fundamentalist Islamic terror cells in the Americas, as well as the reach of the international drug cartels.

In 2009 a U.S. commander tasked with overseeing U.S. military interests in the region said Hezbollah was linked to drug-trafficking in Colombia.
"We have seen... an increase in a wide level of activity by the Iranian government in this region," Admiral James Stavridis told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
"That is a concern principally because of the connections between the government of Iran, which is a state sponsor of terrorism, and Hezbollah," he said.
As long as Brazil and Venezuela are on friendly terms with Iran, these connections will only continue to strengthen.
