Another excellent blog by Constantine – Burkasrugly.
What is the most effective Islamic terrorist organization in the world ? Most Americans would answer Al-Qaeda.
How quickly we forget that prior to 9-11 the most deadly attack on
Americans occurred on October 23, 1983 in Beirut. In that attack 241 Marine and sailors were killed. This was the worst one day loss for the Marines since the battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. We also have forgotten this was a two-pronged attack. A few miles away 58 French paratroopers were killed by a Muslim suicide bomber. The total number of dead French and Americans totaled 299.
The organization that carried out these twin attacks was Hezbollah or, in English, the Party of God (Allah). Al-Qaeda are second stringers when compared to the deadly efficient Hezbollah .
Hezbollah is the state sponsored terrorist arm of Iran. Recently, an Iranian general threatened to destroy the United States from within by attacks carried out by Hezbollah operatives . (What happened to our good friends the Iranians ? Why is the charming Rouhani breathing threats and curses upon America ? Well a feckless Obama just gave away the ranch in his latest Iran nuke deal in which Iran came away the big winner).
Starting in the mid 1990s Hezbollah started infiltrating Central and South America. The terrorist group quickly moved to partner with the drug cartels, perhaps some of the most evil, cruel gangs on the planet. Hezbollah acted hand in glove to supply the cartels with weapons and training. They quickly established training camps in Venezuela, northern Nicaragua and Mexico. Hezbollah actually ran illicit drugs into the United States.
But even worse they have infiltrated teams into the United States. By 2011 it was conservatively estimated that some 3,000 to 5,000 Hezbollah agents were hiding in the United States ready to strike when ordered by Tehran. Training camps were located in Tijuana and Durango in northernmost Mexico. Perhaps today there are 30,000 to 50,000 Hezbollah operatives in just northern Mexico. There are several language schools to teach the Iranians to speak Spanish and thus pass themselves off as Mexicans.
Recently Brigadier General Hossein Salami of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard boasted that Hezbollah could strike and destroy targets in the United States. He even went so far as to suggest there were Iranian forces on the ground in the United States waiting to attack. Even more sinister Hezbollah has formed alliances with Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the al-Quds force. And now comes word that Hezbollah has formed an alliance with al-Shabaab. And al-Shabaab is also operating in Mexico.
This attack could take the form of simultaneous strikes on malls, schools or even Wal-Marts around the country. Think of the carnage that could be wreaked upon helpless victims with just ten teams of terrorists fanning out across the country. Just with assault rifles, pistols and grenades the death toll of Americans could be 500 or more.
Or (God forbid) what if the Iranians now have a 5-10 kiloton nuclear weapon that could be smuggled across the border. And then detonated it in Los Angeles, San Diego, El Paso or Phoenix. Hundreds of thousands of Americans would die in the blast and the ensuing radioactive fallout. There are hundreds of smuggling tunnels from the extreme northern most edge of Mexico into our country. We know these tunnels are capable of moving tons of drugs. So why not a 500-pound nuclear weapon?
Or what if an Iranian freighter sails to within 200 miles of our eastern coast and launches a nuclear tipped missile. The weapon detonates 50 miles over Philadelphia. The electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) destroys all unprotected circuitry in a 400 mile radius. A hundred million Americans lose electricity, cars and the power grid for well over a year. Millions would die not from blast but from disease and famine. Think it can’t happen? The Iranians have been launching rockets from freighters in the Caspian Sea for at least three years training for this kind of attack.
Without neglecting al-Qaeda, we need to be doing everything we can to destroy Hezbollah’s ability to assault us. We need to quit singing Kum Ba Ya with the Iranians (Obama Style).
Their agents in the United States need to be hunted down and terminated with extreme prejudice. Hezbollah is deadly serious about killing as many Americans as possible. They must not succeed!
