This invasion thing is happening, folks.
I feel like I’m the only one sounding the alarm here.
All hands on deck, lads.
Get hyped. Stock up on ammo. Invest in crypto.
Hezbollah is active in Venezuela, the US secretary of state has said, as the Trump administration ratchets up pressure on the Latin American nation amid a crippling political and economic crisis.
“People don’t recognise that Hezbollah has active cells” in the country, Mike Pompeo told Fox Business. “The Iranians are impacting the people of Venezuela and throughout South America. We have an obligation to take down that risk for America.”
The US has long considered the Iranian-backed Lebanese group a terrorist organisation, and sanctions on people in Venezuela linked to Hezbollah have been imposed as far back as the George W Bush administration.
Washington also believes Latin America has served as a base of fund-gathering for the group for some years, including through drugs and money-laundering schemes, according to past reports.
Venezuela’s former president Hugo Chavez formed tight links with Iran under Mahmoud Ahmedinejad’s leadership.
Funny. I thought they were going to go with the Russian hackers thing.
But claiming that Iranian Moslems are hiding out in the jungles of Venezuela is a bold move.
Most people associate Moslems with mountains and desert but putting them in the jungle was a stroke of genius. Now there’s only Space Moslems left to look out for.
You didn’t think that we were creating the Space Force for nothing right?
The Space Moslems hate us for our freedom and they needed to be taken out!
Here’s the obligatory confirmation from the Russian media that yes, this thing is happening and that the refugee explanation is bullshit.
So here’s the thing about a lot of these “refugees.”
When you have a command economy on one side of the border that’s lacking a lot of consumer goods because of sanctions, you’re going to get a lot of shoppers coming over the border.
These Venezuelans trade cheap as dirt oil that’s been heavily subsidized by the government for stuff like the much-vaunted toilet paper. There’s also US Aid on the Colombia side of the border. These “refugees” go back to Venezuela after they’re finished shopping to sell their wares on the black market.
Just watch the report if you don’t believe me.
Now, I’m sure that Iran has a relationship with Venezuela – they’re trying to create an OPEC-type alternative and hit the US where it will hurt the most: in the petrodollar.
That doesn’t mean that Hezbollah is in Venezuela though.
They’re already in Lebanon and fighting in Syria, I think they have their hands full… although it would be cool if they were deployed in the jungles.
Perhaps the Imams are thinking long-term and trying to convert the South Americans to Shi’ite Islam before they all convert to Sunnism first.
