We will Win the Battle

There is no Doubt: There is Terrorism all over Latin America

Sadly, for Latin America rumors have become truths. Terrorism exists in Latin America. Reports from different sources validate, the fact, that various suspicions are no longer speculations but reality. Terrorism is in countries like Nicaragua, Honduras, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela.  
Jaime Daremblum, of theHudsonInstitute, Washington, D.C., and Costa Rica’s former ambassador to the United States, confirms that terrorist cells are working in Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. Daremblum says that terrorism has been present in Argentina since the attacks perpetrated by Hezbollah in the 1990’s.

Is Hugo Chavez a Terrorist?

Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s President, has established an anti-American agenda since he became president. It is not a surprise to some people to read articles like the ones posted on America’s Forum web site. However, the implications for Latin America exposed in the articles linked bellow are real and dangerous.
According to the articles, Hugo Chavez hosted a terrorist summit in Venezuela’s Military Intelligence Fort Tiuna in Caracas back in August 2010. The meeting had representatives from Hamas, Hezbollah, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Chavez has become the perfect seed that terrorism needs to spread its radical ideas.
Chavez’ influence in countries like Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador, etc., is an asset to terrorists’ cells. In Ecuador, terrorists have a different incentive to promote their fight against the western hemisphere. Ecuador uses the United States Dollar as currency. Money laundering in dollars is an advantageous tool for terrorism to finance its operations. The Financial Actio…
