Anti American anti Semitic get-together

Can people really believe that this has no meaning for US security? That's aside from the moral issue of piling on the state of Israel by Venezuela, as if twenty two Arab/Muslim states in a declared state of war against it weren't enough to make Israelis paranoid.

Do Venezuela's ties to Iran mean a foothold for Hizbollah in the Americas? That is, one more foothold, since they have been a presence in the "four corners" region of Brazil/Argentina/Paraguay/Uruguay for many years now.

Do Venezuela's ties to Iran mean Hizbollah collaboration with the FARC? Does Hisbollah collaboration with the FARC mean Hizbollah collaboration with insurgents/drug gangs in Mexico? Mexicans have been identified at FARC camps in the past. Etc etc.

With Iran/Hizbollah influence in the Americas, and possibly in Mexico, the instability caused by the war on drugs should cause even more concern. Mexico is bordering on "failed state" status as it is. It will take very little to push it over the edge--a natural disaster, of which there are plenty to threaten the country; political unrest--and there a multiple groups interested in prolonging and deepening this unrest.

A failed state on the US' southern border rife with Hizbollah agents? This would be a nightmare under any president. Under Obama it becomes worse than a nightmare. He's in way over his head as it is. Add something like this, and he'll just go under completely.

Hugo Chávez/Ahmadinejad nexus 
TEHRAN, Iran  —  Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez railed against the West on Saturday, pledging to deepen their ties and stand together against the United States and world powers the two perceive as imperialistic.

Chavez said Iran is "a true strategic ally, a staunch ally" to his country and defended Iran's right to a nuclear program.

He praised Iran for standing up to alleged attempts by "Western forces" to destabilize it after the June presidential election that brought his ally Ahmadinejad a second term in office. These attempts have failed, Chavez said, and "Iran has been strengthened." 
Chavez and Ahmadinejad — both well-known for their anti-U.S. rhetoric — have forged ties in everything from finance to factories. Iran now manufactures cars, tractors and bicycles in Venezuela, and the deepening relationship has provoked concern in Washington. 
This is the same Chávez who said, earlier,
"The state of Israel has become a murderous lackey at the service of imperialism," Chavez said. "It's a genocidal government. I condemn that Zionist government that persecutes the heroic Palestinian people."
[Chávez] added that "the people of Israel shouldn't support a genocidal government."
