New Front in War on Terror: Our Backyard

As the MSM whips itself into a delirium over the irrelevant Pat Robertson's suggestion that we might make the world a better place by ridding it of Hugo Chavez, let's just hope that this isn't true:

The Chavez-Castro axis is preparing a Caribbean Terror: biological weapons. In May 2002 Fidel Castro personally went to Iran, which the U.S. labels as the world's most active supporter of terrorism. He was received by that country's leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who declared that "U.S. grandeur can be broken," and that if it is, "it will be a service rendered to mankind and even the American people." Not to be outdone, Castro told the Iranians, according to the Associated Press, that the U.S. is an "imperialist king" that "will finally fall, just as your king was overthrown."
In July, Castro then sent his close confidant Rodrigo Alvarez Cambras - a congressman and the head of the Cuban-Iraqi Friendship Society - to Iraq as an envoy. This was after Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez had already been to Iraq himself, to pave the way for a Latin American Castro-Chavez pact with Saddam Hussein. As BBC reports from Iraqi TV and Iraq Radio in Baghdad, Alvarez Cambras met with Saddam Hussein to convey a "verbal message" on behalf of Castro and also with Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz. The message was that Castro and Chavez wanted to work with Saddam on developing new bioweapons for use against the United States. also reports that Chavez, not content to praise the attacks of 9/11, or to spend September 12, 2001 publicly burning American flags, gave $1 million to al Qaeda in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.

Chavez's anti-American rhetoric has been in overdrive lately. Like bin Laden before 9/11, he has made no secret of his intense hostility.

Meanwhile, it appears that the US military is taking steps to address a possible Arab terrorist foothold in South America. The region where the borders of Paraguay, Argentina, and Brazil meet "is home to a large Arab community, which various intelligence services have identified as a source of financing and shelter for Islamic fundamentalist groups."

And of course, it isn't just Mexicans pouring across the Mexican border.

As our enemies draw closer, the media chips in by distracting us with the Cindy Sheehan circus, eating away at our will to fight any way they can. It's almost as if media people think that terrorists will spare them in reward for their services.

Thanks to Wiggins for links.

Not all of the people who want to hurt us are on the other side of the world.

Um - Fidel and Hugo Rock! You are evidently a fascist idiot who wants America to dominate the world. Jerk.
You are worse than SATAN (if I believed in him).

Take two large flour tortillas and roll around each meathead to make a burrito, warm in a 350 degree oven for half an hour. Slice and offer petit wraps to the homeless in your city.
