Every once in a while the writing of an article virtually daily gets to a point where you ask yourself if perhaps you are looking so hard at a few items that you may be missing the big picture. You realize that you have burrowed into one subject and you have to take stock and realize if maybe this one main has consumed you. I was thinking that perhaps the whole Iran toxic miasma which has surrounded me and others might be hiding something just as important or even more threatening and pressing that it may be time to look elsewhere for another angle or new subject. So why don’t we try and see some of the other items of the day that are happening and see what we can decipher.

 

One of the items I have seen rising is the challenges to the leadership of Mahmoud Abbas. The claim is as valid as can be, the charge that he is an illegitimate leader since he has not been elected to the post and it is way past time for him to stand for reelection and answer the rising challenges from others who believe he has become obsolete and his belief that he can be President for Life is far too dictatorial and the Arab people deserve an elected leader who is more in tune with their hopes and dreams. The challenge comes from a man who desires to unseat Abbas as President of Fatah and to restructure Fatah to serve the real desires of the Arab people and their desire for a whole and entire state. There was only one small fly in this ointment which makes it as illegitimate as Abbas and potentially even worse. The person behind this Abbas must stand for election now or give up his right to lead does not have the desires of the Arab people living west of the Jordan River in mind. How can I make such a statement? Well, easily as the person making this demand the loudest is likely the man who would try and unseat him and take his place, Mahmoud al-Zahar. For those unfamiliar with Mahmoud al-Zahar allow me to fill in some of the more pertinent information. Mahmoud al-Zahar is a long-time Hamas leader who vilifies Abbas as being too passive and not seeking the desire of the Arabs of destroying Israel and replacing it with the heart of the next Caliphate blessed with the blood of every Israeli and Arab living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea who fails to meet his standard of belief and dedication to a rising Islamic supremacy which will, as per the Hamas Charter, seek out every corner of the world and annihilate every Jew and disbeliever. This would be a frightening thought for somebody who may actually be a credible threat to replace Abbas as the leader of Fatah and then become a legitimate claimant to lead the Authority. Fortunately, al-Zahar is a member of Hamas and not Fatah, not that this would prevent him from running to replace Abbas, presumably making him ineligible to run for the position. If he were to challenge Abbas as the leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA) then he would have a legitimate claim to the position as the unity government is technically in place and valid. Perhaps this makes it feasible for al-Zahar to attempt to unseat Abbas from Fatah, who knows the inner workings, dysfunctional as they may be, of the Arab Fatah Party structure and whether the unity government would add its blessing to such a challenge. But fear not for if one looks deeply enough into the eyes of al-Zahar and peers into his darkened soul one would find the heart of a true Hamas leader whose ideas and ideals come partially from hatreds he is steeped in as a leader of Hamas and gained locally and there are further drives for an Arab entity to replace all the lands west of the Jordan River including all of Israel and purify such a nation in blood. A look just slightly deeper into al-Zahar’s soul and one finds the hands of Iran manipulating many of his actions and implanting desires of leading a victorious Arab army conquering the lands and cleansing them for his Iranian masters. There for all to witness is the driving heart of al-Zahar; simply another soldier of Iran waiting anxiously for the day when the order is given to rise up and claim all the lands which are Israel for his Iranian masters.

 

Then one can decide to look further afield to the new interest in Argentine where the official Offices of the Prosecutors is not only looking into the mysterious death of one of their own, Alberto Nisman, who was assassinated the morning right before he was scheduled to present his findings concerning the bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA; Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) where eighty-five people were murdered and the injured numbered over three-hundred. Alberto Nisman had presumably uncovered evidence which implicated criminal accusations which he had filed against President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Apparently Mr. Nisman discovered plans, a plot even, to permit the attack by Hezballah and Iranian terrorists on the Jewish Community Center in a deal in which it was believed that the Argentine government had sought the arrangement as part of a trade pact with Iran. So, here again we find Iran’s sticky little terrorist fingers only this time the deeds appear to have been carried out by Hezballah in conjunction with the IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps or “Pasdaran”) both operating out of the “Tri-Border Region” which is a long standing center for the training and launching point for terrorist activities in the Americas located where the borders of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil conjoin allowing for each nation to ignore the town and training areas set up by the IRGC along with Hezballah claiming it is within the other two national areas of jurisdictions and as such they have no powers under which to investigate. It appears that the tri-border facility has a really nice set-up going there on the border of Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil and financed and directed by the IRGC enforcing the interests and policies of Iran in the Americas. So, here to it all leads back to the Mullahs in Iran.

 

There have been warnings from the IDF over the possibility of a front opening up other than the expected repeat of last summer and the firing of rockets from out of Gaza into most of Israel, with as anywhere from a thousand to fifteen-hundred rockets each day from out of Lebanon and probably mainly from Syria onto the entirety of Israel and with some longer range rockets actually being new missiles which have excellent accuracy and may prove to be a large problem should they be used to target Tel Aviv or the Dimona Nuclear Research Site outside of the Capital of the South, Beer-Sheva. The main perpetrator of these rockets and missiles which will reach the entire length of Israel is largely Hezballah possibly receiving some support from the IRGC. These attacks will be directed from Tehran and may come in support of the rocket attacks from Gaza and possibly some from the Sinai Peninsula. Unsurprisingly, the orders for both the barrages from the north as well as those from the south by Hamas will be at the directive from where else, that’s right, Iran.

 

Apparently there is a good reason why almost all of our posts have been concerning Iran and their apparent drive for nuclear weapons and President Obama’s naiveté in his handling of the entire negotiations. President Obama is accomplishing two objectives simultaneously by allowing Iran all the time they require to realize their needs for nuclear weapons and refining them to produce a device capable of delivering a knockout electromagnetic pulse (EMP) along the design provided Iran by Russia for their super EMP device which was originally intended by the Soviet Union to deliver a knockout punch to either the European Union electrical grid or to destroy the United States and partially the Canadian electronic grids. This or any other nuclear device would appear to be the goal of the Iranians to continue the negotiations which, for the benefit of Iran would be to continue until they had sufficient devices to allow the usage of one device as a notification that the Iranians have arrived at the gates to the nuclear group demanding admittance and recognition. To continue the talks after such a demonstration would prove to be a further exercise in futility. The question then becomes what does the world do about a nuclear armed Iran and what does Iran do to further the reach of its already extensive network of tentacles reaching even to the far corners of the globe originating in Tehran.

 

We know of the very long and reinforced tentacle through which any strikes on the United States would be directed. Currently this tentacle can reach anywhere in South America through the tri-border area, the area which is currently focused on Buenos Aires and the investigation and eventually the potential trial of those implicated and arrests warrants issued which may implicate Tehran or Lebanon and Hezballah leaders. Such an eventuality might trigger the start of the planned assault on Israel from both directions, both along the northern front and the southern fronts. Should Iran desire to carry out any terrorist activities within the United States, such activities would easily be facilitated and provided access into the United States using their connections with the Mexican drug cartels who Hezballah has trained in tactics and other techniques used by Hezballah to all but run the country of Lebanon where they have free range to train, recruit and plan exercises which has made them one of the finest armies assisting Bashir al-Assad to continue his reign of murder and terror over the nation of Syria. Needless to point out but additionally Iran and Hezballah likely have numerous cells within the United States just waiting for the day they are activated to conduct a mission. The faithful execution of any missions such cells may be utilized to commit is often assured through holding family members within Lebanon as persuasion over their actions and trusted loyalty. We know Iran has extensive abilities to strike anywhere within the Americas as we witnessed in two separate bombings in Argentina the first was the bombing of the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, with the second being the bombing of the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) on July 18, 1994, both in Buenos Aires. These were both perpetrated, as best as we can ascertain, by Hezballah trained operatives with the aid of special agents sent to the Tri-Border Region often in order for them to advance within the Basenji or the ranks of the IRGC, which both have initiation rites, one needs to successfully complete a terrorist operation in order to be considered trustworthy and committed.

 

On the European front there have been a number of terrorist attacks which potentially could have been traced back to Hezballah and Iran with the most recognized being the bombing of the Israeli tourist bus at the Burgas airport along the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. The threats posed by Hezballah have driven the European Union to have placed the “military wing” of Hezballah on their terrorist list, as if there is a non-militant wing of Hezballah. The European reference to the military wing is done so as to allow the Europeans to provide Hezballah funds in Lebanon for such things as building libraries, health clinics and the like which are actually built by the Lebanese government which has not been totally co-opted by Hezballah, at least not currently. There was also a Cyprus magistrate who in March of 2013 indicted a Hezballah courier in Plot to Attack Israeli Tourists. There exist terrorist entities within the civil strife ongoing in Libya which unsurprising as virtually any terrorist groups even to include both ISIS and al-Qaeda have splinter groups inside Libya. Their representation in Libya is just one example of Hezballah presence in northern Africa. In the Middle East there have been reports recently that Hezballah has offered the Houthis in Yemen assistance if they feel it would benefit their efforts. Everybody by now knows that the Iranians have been supplying guns, ammunition, crew-served weapons and the training with the more advanced weapons to assist them in their conquest of the remainder of Yemen. And then there are the Iranians who appear to have completely taken over the ground operations against ISIS in Iraq so completely that the Iranian commanders are the people making the calls for airstrikes. This is a development which should be cause for alarm on behalf of the European and United States pilots and their actual commanders to be relying so completely on Iranian officers and even enlisted men of which most likely belong to the IRGC, a group considered as a borderline or actually declared terrorists and they are now calling in allied air strikes. How are the pilots to know that their strikes are supporting ground actions and not supporting the wonton destruction of property and lives being carried out by the Shiite IRGC members who have been murdering Sunni Iraqis who survived the ISIS occupation and are not facing violence and destruction often by Iraqi troops who actively aid in the destruction of entire Sunni villages and neighborhoods.

 

Finally we get back to the root source of so much of the terrorist and militia violence around the world and who stands as the commander of cells who could turn Europe or the United States into a roiling turmoil striking at soft targets such as malls holding special weekend only sales events, state and county fairs, political rallies, sporting events or anywhere that a large number of people would be attending making for a rich field of victims simply provided for the murdering much as happened in Nairobi, Kenya or the Embassy attacks using car-bomb attacks in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Whether any assaults by terrorist murderers were actually perpetrated by directly linkable entities to Iran or belonging to al-Qaeda or Hamas, both Sunni Muslim terrorist groups, have received safe quarter, training, arming and whatever other resources these presumably enemy Sunni entities to the majority Shiite Iran, but Iran is pragmatic and willing to assist in any actions which will harm Israeli or Western interests and pressure democratic governments potentially causing their collapse. Iran has been behind so many different murderous attacks and has tentacles reaching across the entirety of the globe such that the terror attack planned for next week, or next month or whenever you least expect it, hold sure that it very well will be traceable to Iranian assistance or actual manpower and arms support. Those who accuse Iran of being the greatest sponsor of terrorism on the face of the Earth are serious and know of what they speak. Iran changed drastically largely due to the incompetence and unfathomably simple-minded reasoning by then United States President Jimmy Carter.

 

He rationalized that the Shah of Iran who was methodically bringing Iran forward integrating advanced Western technological and manufacturing possibly even with the intent of eventually installing democratic principles, but all President Carter saw was a wealthy despot taking wealth from his people. On the other side President Carter believed that the Ayatollah Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini had to be a kind and benevolent person as he was a cleric and religious person. Needless to say but President Carter knew little or nothing, if even that much, about Islam and the messianic message commanding that Islam must be spread by any and all means necessary until it becomes the only religion for all mankind on planet Earth and that the Ayatollah Khomeini was a man dedicated to that end. President Carter accepted the promises from Ayatollah Khomeini that he would establish a Western style democracy and grant the people of Iran freedoms and rights beyond President Carter’s wildest imaginations. Well, we can assume that the Ayatollah delivered on the actions beyond President Carter’s wildest imaginations when the Ayatollah allowed, some like I believe aided and planned, the takeover of the United States Embassy followed by a four-hundred-forty-four days until the next President, Ronald Reagan, was inaugurated at which point fearing and immediate war being launched by the new President, ended the siege and returned the hostages. After the final release of every last hostage, the truths about some of the treatment received by the hostages with some being accused of being spies and torture used to coerce confessions and other atrocities, the full and shocking story was finally told. It is good to know that the Iranian leadership has not changed that much from the early days in 1979 when Ayatollah Khomeini returned triumphantly and installed his theocracy and all the horrors one might imagine.

 

Now we have President Barrack Obama who looks to Iran and sees a potential ally who can replace the current United States allies of Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel and take over as the hegemonic power in the Middle East which will not require United States military presence, an ultimate goal of President Obama, removing the United States military presence from everywhere outside the American borders. Iran, now under the rule of Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, has changed as little as the names of its rulers’ have, from Khomeini to Khamenei. The Ayatollah Khamenei is more than happy and quite eager to take advantage of every possible advantage he realizes he holds over President Obama. This has been most evident in the nuclear arms negotiations where the representatives for the United States state their position and the Iranian negotiators state their position. Then the debate begins eventually leading to a one-on-one meeting behind closed doors between United States Secretary of State John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister and Chief Negotiator Mohammad Javad Zarif. These are often long and drawn-out sessions and when they finally are completed the two men meet with their respective teams and negotiations continue with one slight alteration, the United States negotiators are now assisting the Iranian in pressing their positions on France, Britain and Germany. This has been the basic functioning premise of the negotiations with it becoming almost comical had it not also been such a disaster for the western world including Israel and the Middle East especially for Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Jordan and I guess we can include Israel again as it does seem to be twice as much trouble where Israel is concerned. The one nation which appears will win no matter which side, Saudi Arabia or Iran, becomes the leader of the Islamic world, and that is Turkey which is sitting on both sides of the fence. In the meantime the Iranians are spinning their way to nuclear weapons and holding the biggest club over the Middle East, North Africa and eventually Europe and capable of going toe-to-toe with Russia as by then Iran will be the hegemonic power of half of the world and well on their way to completing the dream of Islam since 765 A.D. Much of the most recent round of nuclear negotiation talks have been the stuff of nightmares and are promising to only get worse. There is no actual candidate who will play savior and come dashing over the hill riding high on his white stallion with a white Stetson atop his head blowing the bugle for the cavalry to charge in and save the day. I fear that President Obama has had the cavalry’s steeds sold off for a bag of magic beans. The question is will the world be capable of surviving the events yet to happen over the next two years. How much damage will be done by an Iranian menace cut loose and armed with nuclear warheads to enforce their will, how does the world coexist with that? Do we all survive a messianic cult with dreams of an eventual battle which engulfs the world and only then does their messiah arrive and grant them victory over a world made mostly of radioactive dust. What can we do and how can we do whatever will prevent the destruction of all everybody knows.

Prosecutor’s Fate Mirrors Western Culture

 

Yesterday’s article about the reported suicide death of Alberto Nisman, the Argentine prosecutor investigating the terrorist strike on the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA), did our best to convey our suspicions that suicide was the least likely manner in which he lost his life. First thing with the sun rising over the Rocky Mountains came the first inklings that perhaps Alberto Nisman had not taken his own life. There were his friends who related that he was a positive and upbeat individual who loved life and lived it well. This added to the fact that his death came mere hours before he was scheduled to appear before the Congress of the Argentine Nation to give witness on the progress and particulars of his probe into the greatest singular crime of the last century. Adding to the evidence against his committing suicide his appearances in an interview where he appeared to be really looking forward to this appearance where he had stated that his investigation against Kirchner was “likely to kill me,” horribly prophetic. Well, the initial reaction in Argentina was anything but passive as friends, coworkers and the general public were all up in arms demanding a more thorough investigation be made into the suspicious death of this prosecutorial investigator. Slowly the day passed and the evidence slowly put to lie the suicide theory as the cause of death of Prosecutor Alberto Nisman. The first evidence beyond the fact that Alberto Nisman was an unlikely candidate to have committed suicide was the admission that there was no suicide note left, a sure sign against suicide as the note is much more than a simple Hollywood convention. The final knife in the heart was the fact that the firearm found in the room did not belong to Alberto Nisman and everybody knows that one would find it rather difficult to borrow a friend’s handgun with which to commit suicide. By the end of the day yesterday the Argentine government had turned from blaming the death of Prosecutor Alberto Nisman on a suicide into making it the next urgent investigation for the Argentine Prosecutors Office.

 

The problems with the investigation by Alberto Nisman are that it was making some powerful people uncomfortable. The fact that those people included the present and a past President of Argentina, former President Carlos Menem and current President Cristina Kirchne, made it a very poor move if personal longevity is one of your desired aims. Alberto Nisman was a man of fate, truth and integrity who went where the facts led him and damn the implications and potential to make people of power feel threatened and thus very uncomfortable by his findings. The fact that his investigation had also led to include Iran, Hezballah and the clandestine relations between certain political entities and Faustian deals over oil and influence and he boldly went where no man had before chasing only the truth. He knew the costs could be high and that the information he had gathered and their implications might even lead to his being murdered but he kept with his faith that such was not possible because Argentine society was not that of some tin pot dictatorship or third rate banana republic but a modern democracy under the rule of law. Unfortunately for Alberto Nisman somebody somewhere whose toes he had trod upon did not hold such a high view of the nation and the supremacy of the rule of law as he ended up dead on the floor of his room by a strange firearm mere hours before making witness to some truths before the national Congress where those secrets he had uncovered were about to be revealed and placed under the light of day and made clear for the eyes of the nation and the world. Now he had been silenced which only adds one more crime to the list of crimes Alberto Nisman had investigated, and also made a strong statement which those who will be tasked with investigating his death and those who will be assigned to complete his investigations will keep foremost in their minds as they carefully tread around implying any people of influence as they will never know for sure if that person is the same who already bought silence with the death of a human being. Nobody will desire these posts and whoever is so tasked may consider finding a new line of work rather than take such a risky tasking. Hopefully there will be another person of courage and dedication which is at least of a similar bravery that Alberto Nisman displayed and an immutable nerve to chase truth and do that which is required to complete the task with honesty, integrity and a thoroughness and toughness which casts all other concerns aside following down every lead to its final arrow which flies truly to home in on those guilty of crimes against the state and the AMIA bombings. Where such a person can be found is a hard task to answer as people such as Alberto Nisman are a rare and precious breed.

 

The fact that a man of such integrity and honesty was laid waste in a moment of selfish thuggery is a sad commentary of our world. That there was someone of high rank and influence would sink to murder a countryman even if they called upon a person of lesser morals, though which would have been the person of lesser morals is questionable, and take the life of a modern day knight who only sought to complete his assignment to its conclusion and follow the truths where they would take him is a sad testimony, period. Western society used to have leaders who would have simply taken the accusation and at the least made a deal to tell all and resign quietly melting into obscurity with their reputation ruined and reaping the scorn of their countrymen. Apparently holding on to the trappings has become more important to some in whom the people have chosen to place their trust and such a person betraying the people’s trust by the taking of the life of a public servant who was doing what the people through their government had tasked him to perform is one of the saddest accusations against those who are offered up as a valid choice to lead one of the democratic nations in our modern world. Murder to silence an accusation was something expected in monarchies, dictatorships and other lesser forms of governments and certainly not of a democratically elected governance, yet that is what we have witnessed yesterday in Argentina. The fact the there were likely also terrorist entities involved and that some of those very terrorist entities may now be placed in high and honorable positions within the government of Iran does introduce another angle which must be considered. There is little doubt that there was probably involvement in the AMIA bombing of Hezballah and Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) which train and occupy a town in the tri-border (Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay intersecting region) area in South America and the central area for terrorist activities in the Western Hemisphere and that these also may have had some part in the assassination of Alberto Nisman. The IRGC and especially the al-Quds force, which is the special forces units of the IRGC, are also a training and testing grounds for promotion into high level government positions within the Iranian theocracy such as Mohsen Rabbani who was the cultural attaché of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires and has since been promoted to head the Oriental Thought Cultural Institute in Qom, Iran after having started in the IRGC. Even had the assassination of Alberto Nisman been carried out by Hezballah, a probability which cannot be ignored, there was still likely somebody within the Argentine government or well connected to the current government who would have arranged the infiltration of the Hezballah terrorist who performed the strike and then facilitated the exit before the dawn revealed the results of the deed. Any way that this horrific crime was carried out it reflects on the barbarity which still remains in the halls of power even in the democratic institutions of the modern world. Such a commentary on our modern world places into question exactly how modern that world really is. Obviously we have yet to grow beyond the self-preservation which often reveals the worst side of any of us but when it involves somebody in high office in whom a great amount of trust has been placed by the people all the more difficult it is to swallow that bitter pill.

 

Let us pray that the murderer of Alberto Nisman is brought to justice and all involved in what is very likely a web of intrigue, criminality and depravity involving who knows how many people of immoral criminals. May another prosecutor who takes their pursuit of truth and deep faith in the law have the desire to find the hidden truth and then bring those involved in the massacre of 85 people and the injuring of 300 others in the horrific crime to be finally brought to trial and to justice and forced to pay for their heinous crimes. We should also hope that the murderer of Alberto Nisman and any accomplices both before and after the act be rounded up and face the cold judgment of the court and be made to pay for the crime of murder for the sake of denying justice and depriving the people of Argentina of a hero of heroes in the offices of the prosecutors which was exemplified by Alberto Nisman like few have done before and likely few will accomplish going forward though such is in short supply and never more needed than in the unraveling of the tangled web woven from murder and deceit. There is a hole in the fabric that is Argentina and that hole will be difficult to mend as it is the hole made by the loss of a truly complete and honest servant of the people and of law and the order it produces for their society, a hole which takes time and others of equal or greater firmness in tackling the challenges of toeing the straight line of following the truth wherever it may lead, sometimes truth is the most difficult of things to hold oneself to following. Good luck Argentina as you now have the unenviable task of setting to not only finding the murderer of an honest public servant but also the finding of a straight and honest man who is willing to follow leads wherever they should lead, and able to discern truth from obfuscations, but also having the intelligence to find the minutia and the obscured and from then piece together the whole cloth from which they were severed and torn in an attempt to keep any investigator chasing their tail in circles made of smoke, mirrors and the fog of concealment mixed with the confusion intended to dizzy even the straightest of men such that no one could conceivably make sense and rooting the truth whence it was buried. One need be intelligent and stalwart with a singularity of purpose to complete the task for which Alberto Nisman was murdered. Unfortunately, the powers that be are more likely to seek the Argentine version of Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau than they are Sherlock Holmes or better yet, another Alberto Nisman, the best choice of all.

The Death of Alberto Nisman

 

Alberto Nisman’s death will go down as a suicide and no real and driven investigation will ever be launched to prove otherwise. He had been given the task of looking into things which nobody wanted to be searched through competently. Alberto Nisman had reached dead ends in much of his attempt to prosecute those who had been behind the 1994 bombing of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) which had left 85 people dead and 300 others injured, predominantly Jews though there were also Christians who were employed and worked in the building and were amongst those struck, in the worst attack of its kind in the South American country. Alberto Nisman had traced the culpability back to Hezballah and Iranian influence but was facing opposition to getting exact information about accomplices and other involvements. He had recently alleged some of the blame for obstruction on the offices and person of President Cristina Kirchner, never a wise step when investigating things wanted buried. In an interview from a few days ago Alberto Nisman had said the investigation against Kirchner was “likely to kill me,” how prophetic. Often such Freudian slips where people state their fears in a mocking fashion or as a passing comment are very revealing and this mostly ignored comment during an interview may have indicated some deeply held fears for his life by Alberto Nisman. Alberto Nisman accused former president Carlos Menem of also obstructing the investigation into the bombing. The bombing came two years after an attack against the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires which has also not been fully investigated and had leads back to Hezballah and Iran.

 

This repetitive referencing of Hezballah and Iran of conducting such attacks within Buenos Aires, Argentina might appear to be a stretch but actually is not that difficult to believe. What is seldom mentioned by news reports is the fact that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG) and Hezballah, basically an offshoot division located and semi-controlling the country of Lebanon, have a base of operations deep in South America. In a small town in the ‘tri-borders’ town South America perched right on the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay is neglected by the law enforcement and security forces of each nations with each claiming the town is the responsibility of the other two thus avoiding what would likely become a small war zone should they actually attempt any actions. The top officers and many of the trainers are from the elite IRGC unit known as the Quds Force of Iran. These forces have been reported to train the enforcers for the Mexican drug cartels in exchange for their assistance in infiltrating forces and sleeper cells into the United States. The attempt to assassinate the Saudi ambassador residing in Washington D.C. was also linked back to having origins in this nefarious little area. Many of the top leadership throughout the Iranian government have at some point in their lives had ties to this area or to Iranian offices in South American nations such as Mohsen Rabbani who was the cultural attaché of the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires. He has since moved on to head the Oriental Thought Cultural Institute in Qom, Iran, an office where he can recruit top people to become leading members of the forces charged with spreading the “cultural revolution” which brought the Ayatollahs to power in Iran elsewhere around the world. A more visceral definition would be that they are charged with executing attacks deemed desirable by the Iranian leadership around the world. It is for this reason plus covert training that the tri-border region facility is tasked to facilitate any actions in the Americas and the western continental areas.

 

The people, forces and organizational arrays which Alberto Nisman was charged with investigating were very powerful and stretched all the way back to some people very high in the Iranian government even to members and leaders in their parliament. We are speaking of people who have a very long reach and had proven to be capable of operating in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which was part of the reason there were crimes to be investigated. This might lead one to form some wild theories which would be dismissed as originating from insane ideas from beyond the cusp of sanity to explain the death of 51 year old Alberto Nisman from a gunshot wound to his head in his Buenos Aires apartment overnight, hours before he was to testify at a congressional hearing into cover-up allegations he leveled last week against Argentine President Cristina Kirchner. Nothing suspicious about such an obvious suicide, let’s move on after taking the appropriate amount of time to pay our respects and honor this dedicated public servant and show our regrets to this loss. Needless to say, but we will most definitely find others to carry on his work in this investigation but they will be starting with the handicap of not knowing all the thoughts and suspicions which Alberto Nisman took with him to his grave. Such a loss will be hard to take with his investigation leading to who knows where and now having to retrace steps and try to digest years of dedicated and sometimes, we admit, far reaching and uncomfortable boundaries which had been crossed by an intrepid and dedicated man who would investigate every lead regardless as to whom it may have implied to have been connected to those awful bombings at the two largest and most central Jewish entities in Buenos Aires, the Israeli embassy and the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association. Alberto Nisman will be missed and we fear that there will not be anyone who will be capable of filling his shoes to continue his work. I will pray for whoever is chosen to continue these investigations and hope they have half the temerity when it comes to following every lead regardless of who it offends, implicates or incriminates. Justice will be served only should the ensuing continuation of Alberto Nisman’s work makes those very same people uncomfortable and the full truth be revealed in the finality of the investigations.
