Israeli Possible Futures and American Elections

 

There have been many numbers of articles predicting the fate of Israel should one party or the other take the White House next January. Where this early on it is a bit futile to be second guessing the American people, there are some concrete facts we can observe more generally and some rather specific. The most obvious fact is that Israel will likely fair better with virtually any Republican in the White House than either of the Democrat frontrunners. This has been the trend which has steadily become absolute starting with President George H. W. Bush who was far less Israel friendly than President William Jefferson Clinton. The Republican side is the most undecided; so we will begin with them, though there are some tantalizing consequences for discussion on the Democrat side.

 

The knowledge that Israel would be better served by any Republican than with either Democrat frontrunner is a no-brainer; there are still sufficient untested Republicans which leave things unsettled there as well. The top three caucus winners in Iowa are a case in point. Ted Cruz is as pro-Israel as anyone could ask for and would likely increase whatever aid Israel claimed to have or needs identified by United States Military assessments. Mr. Cruz is also the one most likely to ignore the current State Department being fully aware that the United States Department of State is closer to being an enemy foreign agent than an American foreign policy agency. They are so far into the pocket of whatever Islamic forces appear dominant at any given time ignoring the small fact that the United States can alter that picture with the slightest influence added by clandestine units in their military. Truth be known, even with Russian influence, the United States can alter any reality on the ground should it so choose. The drawback would be risking a general confrontation with the Russians which would require active duty forces in numbers sufficient to require Congressional approval and thus general media coverage. Much of the American as well as European and the World media will bend left as the media is generally more an agent of leftist ideological proponents and similarly predisposed on reporting on the Middle East which had been made evident by their misreporting or bias and slanted reporting on the Arab Israeli conflict which is decidedly anti-Israel.

 

 

Ted Cruz for President

 

Donald Trump for President

 

Marco Rubio for President

 

Next down the caucus line is Donald Trump followed by Marco Rubio. Mr. Trump is completely untested in any and all policy positions and this is even more pronounced on foreign policy. Mr. Rubio is only slightly less of a mystery. The advantage Rubio has is he will likely follow the mainline Republican positions which had become more pro-Israel. Mr. Trump has talked a good game but his true heart is unknown and he is more likely to allow the State Department and the Pentagon along with whatever foreign advisors already exist within the government initially for his positions andthis would produce a period of time where he could damage Israeli relations even further. The question is how and if that would change when he received different and pressing information from the Israelis themselves and other contacts even to include business influence from people he has dealt with and gained a degree of trust. Rubio would also be somewhat untested and known to follow the advice he receives which then would rest heavily on his choice for Secretary of State and the weight he would put on Military and other foreign policy influences against the State Department. The one thing we know is Rubio is the candidate most likely to allow others from the Republican hierarchy to set his foreign policy. The decision, if one is honest, is still out on these two candidates who were definitive winners in Iowa.

 

Of the remaining herd of contenders who at this point are not even sufficient to be second tier and are closer to third tier with the one exception, the sole other Republican candidate to clear 2%, Ben Carson. Dr. Carson would necessarily need to rely heavily on experts and thus his positions would depend completely on who he appoints with the one obvious difference, the Pentagon and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Our feelings are Dr. Carson would be very similar to President George W. Bush than any other predecessor. Hopefully Dr. Carson could look at a map of the areas surrounding Israel and the Middle East and realize that Egypt is currently stable, Jordan is stable with a few big ‘if’s’ sitting on her northern and eastern borders and might need to rely heavily on Israeli intelligence and potentially military support should the Islamic State turn their eyes westward seeking a border with Israel which Jordan would provide. We hear the people with their maps out pointing to the fact that such a move would still leave the West Bank and Jordan River as impasses to an Islamic State assault on Israel. We feel it would be a near certainty that not only Israel would aid Jordan but so would Saudi Arabia and the other member nations to the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council). Currently the three main challenges which would face anyone stepping into office would be, in descending order, from the greatest threat down three steps are, Iran, Islamic State and the Iranian controlled terror networks of Hezballah, Islamic Jihad, to a lesser extent Hamas, and soon to be acquired Palestinian Authority which is likely to see a leadership change within two to three years as Abbas and family will take off for safer climes, probably somewhere in the United States under the witness protection agency’s assistance.

 

Ben Carson for President

 

The remainders of the Republican herd who we can take the measure of are Jeb Bush and Chris Christie who both talk a good pro-Israel game but remain untested as being governors they had little to deal with outside their States and were able to leave the big foreign policy decisions to Washington D.C. Both would likely play Republican ballgame until they were able to put their own people in place. This would mean heavy reliance on the State Department and its Arabist and Islamist leaning viewpoint and having a disparaging and deleterious effect on Israeli ability to trust any recommendations initially from the White House. The long term relations would be heavily dependent on the people placed in positions such as Secretary of State, State Department Middle East experts and department leaders, Ambassador to Israel, Ambassador to the United Nations, Security Advisor and on.

 

The Democrat side of the equation has one twist and is otherwise underwhelming. Bernie ‘Feel the Bern’ Sanders has a voting record only the Muslim Brotherhood would applaud. He has proven to have adopted the erroneous leftist view that Israel is guilty of the two greatest sins, colonialization and capitalism. On the latter, Israel can only plead guilty and proud of it. On the foremost charge Israel is provably not guilty. First piece of evidence is the Holy Bible and in particular, Torah. The Torah other than the five books which chronical the early life from Abraham forward of the Jewish people but is the deed of ownership of all the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea and south of the Litany River, though the current border with Hezballah, oops, sorry, Lebanon will suffice. Don’t you just hate when that happens. Then there are the treaties, Mandates and conferences which resulted in the League of Nations declaration of intent and right of the Jews to their own state located where the Biblical accounts define their Holy Promised Lands. Bernie may have been born into a Jewish family but that little fact never softened his heart nor gave him an appreciation of the necessity for the Jewish People to have a place of refuge where they may defend themselves if again the world decides it is best to either actively slaughter the Jews or simply not lift a finger to save those few where offers are provided for their potential to save such as the SS St. Louis. We can place Senator Sanders on the State Department side and likely to continue the Obama aggressive policies concerning Israel and even supporting an Iranian centric Middle East and North Africa. Bernie Sanders has not proven to be a friend of Israel.

 

Hillary Clinton is an easier story. She really does not think all that highly of Jews. This was most evident when after Bill lost an election she angrily screamed at the campaign manager calling him some kind of derogatory form of Jew with questionable parenting engaged in a lewd act and the campaign manager was not even a Jew so the word Jew in this racy and lewd epithet could only have been included as a further form of insult. This episode has been known in political circles and in Israel for quite some time, since early in Bill Clinton’s Presidency and is chronicled here. Additionally there is e-mailgate, really, e-mailgate? Haven’t we beat the gate means scandal after Watergate back during President Nixon’s administration where Hillary Clinton did a part of the research on this case which might mitigate this and no that did not mean miti-gate conspiracy though somebody from some conspiracy website will see gate and jump ugly to conclusions. Hillary has to win the Democrat nomination and the election or she is toast and the FBI is the toaster. Any normal individual, we know that normal can never be used when the Clintons are involved, would have been detained, tried, convicted, appealed, lost and be serving time in a Federal Penitentiary. Should she lose anything leading to the White House she will be indicted immediately. As far as Hillary and Israel, could we simply state oil and water for the comparison. No, need more? Sure, Hillary is the water and Israel is the highly flammable oil floating above and Hillary lights a match above the liquid line causing all the oil to disappear in a burst of flames and smoke and the water barely gets any warmer. Hillary fully supported every Obama policy regarding Israel and with gusto. Yes, she pandered to the Jews in New York when she ran for the Senate from New York. She wanted to get elected and also have additional campaign funds. Any pro-Israel comments can be placed as purely political and playing a particular audience though probably not that necessary as most of the Jews supporting Hillary do not support Israel either. Having met too many such leftist Jews, by birth only, who line up lockstep in the parade of the Democrat mainstream which has been as hijacked. This claim can be validated by inspecting after terrorists strike and they attempt to mitigate any terror act claiming the person was hijacked and does not represent the Islam they are familiar with. Hillary will only be less of a detriment to Israel because she will pay little if any attention to foreign policy decisions leaving the majority to aids and reliance on the State Department, need more be said. The big question is rapidly becoming who will be placed replacing Hillary should she become toxic either by actual arraignment or simply too much stacked against her and her base, as fickle as it may be, simply melts away and she becomes an unviable candidate. Joe Biden has ruled out a run and in keeping with the first woman President motif, we would suggest they would have Hillary give her delegates to Elizabeth Warren who would sweep Bernie Sanders aside in a tidal change potentially notifiable from the ISS, from the International Space Station. The tide would sweep across the Democrat primary voters and her coronation would take place at the Democrat National Convention. Her likelihood of taking the Presidency would be a complete lock should she decide to choose Bernie Sanders as her running-mate as that addition to her ticket would cement the youth vote, a vote which proved so vital to President Obama. Lastly, Elizabeth warren polls excellently with Democrats and the population as a whole. We expect this last scenario to play out as it appears that the FBI has built their case and are waiting for her to falter to pull the pin on the indictment grenade which would finish her candidacy, something the Democrat main controlling interests just might prefer as they watch her national polling numbers tank.

 

Hillary Clinton for President

 

 

Bernie Sanders for President

 

There remains one critical position which almost nobody from either side is likely willing to take except one. The position is that there is not and never has been an honest partner for peace from the Palestinian Authority and most definitely not from Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Fatah, the PLO or any other Arab influence with the possible exception of Egyptian President Sisi whose efforts to force a reformation for Islam with the transformative impact greater than that of the Protestant Reformation in Europe and definitely more dangerous and threatening to President Sisi’s continued health. One can only hope for his success and pray for his continued health. As far as Israeli policy, any administrations pushing any deal other than the full annexation of the territory of Judea and Samaria with a weeding out of the most dangerous of the terror operatives and their leadership. Additionally, Israel could offer any Arab desiring to leave and never return, meaning never ever return, in exchange for a generous dispensation including purchase of their properties and holdings and a generous award of separation which would likely to exceed their expected lifetime earnings with the understanding that should they or any member of their family return they would be executed on sight. Any pushing of the deader than a doornail policy of two states living side by side in peace, security and prosperity is not realistic especially looking around the Middle East and North Africa and one sees a sea of turmoil and conflict with little comfort in sight for most of these conflicts and with all eyeing attacking Israel as a potentially solid option. How erroneous and self-destructive such a policy decision would prove, the fact it bears mention is a testament to the insanity which has soaked the region.

The Election is Not About Beating Obama

 

 

I am not sure the Republican Candidates are fully aware that they are running for the office of President after President Obama leaves the White House as he has had his two terms. They will be running against likely Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. That is the other point, Hillary may not be the Democrat Candidate, Bernie Sanders is looking stronger every day. Further, Hillary may not be eligible to be President after the prosecution of her for the e-mail imbroglio results in more than an inconvenience and more of a felony indictment and convictions on numerous counts followed by her being disbarred and incarcerated, even if it is a luxury prison with full spas, golf course and other facilities making it more like a Club Med Resort; perhaps called Club Fed. What, you thought important and privileged people such as the Clintons or other politically connected criminals served their time in lock-down did you? Even if pardoned for her improprieties before the trial or simply having these criminal acts which may have threatened United States operatives, secrets or other damaging intelligence has been tried thus saving the American public from such a dreary and lengthy series of even more Hillary Clinton without make-up and self-sleep-deprived concerned about a future less predictable than a Presidential election could ever be.

 

 

Club Fed or Club Med?

Club Fed or Club Med?

 

 

From the little we have watched of the debates, it appeared that the so-called second tier candidates, better described as the hidden gems and chipped glass candidates as there are a couple of those who belong and are ready for prime time but are being kept in the basement more likely because they are ready and the Republicans want a puppet they can control and not a President who is in control. This is why they are so concerned about a Trump win and less concerned with actually winning the Presidency. Do not get us wrong, we also fear a Trump Presidential run but because we fear a Trump as President, though there could be worse, don’t ask us how. The questions which they all need to answer are simple and obvious to all except the moderators and the people writing their questions, or is there a higher conspiracy of silence on these topics. First off, how would you defeat the Democrat candidate if it is Hillary, if it is Bernie? Second, will you repeal all of Obamacare? Will you include the records gathering and other privacy invasions included in the original thousand plus page legislation and the other initial provisions hidden in other legislation some of which entitled the Federal Government through the IRS to gather medical data from every hospital and doctor’s office by the IRS and also allow them to share the data with corporations and other agencies? Would you, and if so, how would you go about making efforts to rebuild the relations with the more traditional allies, which ones, and exactly how? Asking them questions different than those placed at the feet of the Democrats in their debates is unfair and will remain that way but as long as there are going to be hardball questions, how about a little substance with the spiteful venom. As is said, inquiring minds want to know, and that holds for the Democrats as well as we want to know what their plans are and no more simpleton slogans like ‘Yes we can’ and healing the Earth as the Earth can take care of herself.

 

Another idea which would work for weeding out the candidates would be for the primaries not to be stacked-up and front-loaded as they are. It is a bit ridiculous that the candidacy be all but over after ‘Super Tuesday’ which this election year falls on March first. Even if none of the candidates have the required number of delegates, by the end of April it is all over but the shouting and streamers, confetti and balloons, please don’t forget the balloons as their refusing to dislodge as electrostatic cling is holding them against the ceiling and delegates screaming for them to be dislodged is often the only surprise and entertainment of these conventions. There used to be some drama in the nominations until people started complaining about the candidates being chosen in some dark backroom filled with cigar smoke to the point of being unhealthy as was that system. Then came the race to be the primary which ‘put the candidate over’ which meant that states were jockeying to place their primary date in the vital spot so as to be the one remembered for placing the name of the future President on their party’s ballot. This led to the leap-frogging until they all hid an agreed upon wall, nobody was to go earlier than March first, which happens to be the first Tuesday this year. When one considers the candidates and Presidents we have had since popular vote won the nomination, perhaps those smoke-filled rooms was not such a bad method as at least we got some of the best Presidents from cigar smoke-filled rooms. While we are at retrofitting political election processes, could we return the elections for Senate to the individual states and allow them to at least have the control even if by now not using the primary selection process would be a difficult sell, though as long as selecting Presidential candidates is on the ballot, the rest is just gravy which is proven by the far smaller number of people who vote in primaries in off year elections.

 

That brings us to our conclusions which the election processes makes so evidentially obvious. Not all change and placing things before the people is necessarily the greatest of ideas and the wisest of all approaches. Where we might trust a room with one hundred randomly chosen farmers more than we would trust the United States Senate in making decisions for our personal lives, we have our doubts about their deciding trade matters or approving cabinet positions and other appointments as they would not have sufficient knowledge in such areas, though they would prove to have greater common sense. It might not be a bad thing to add in one more requirement for the office of President as it would give every President a greater understanding concerning matters of military preparedness, the military requirements in budgetary matters and in the use of troops. Here are some observations from one of our staff who happens to be a veteran of the United States Army. It is understandable that there should be reductions in the military’s funding in times of need but their funding cannot be made the money pot which other programs are given increases while the military is cut. The military is an essential service even if it is not the preferred way to settle differences. A strong and well-armed military makes those other avenues more likely, not less likely. There should be a baseline minimum for military spending of something around ten percent of the budget. This would work in two ways. First and foremost it would guarantee sufficient if not ample funding of the military and allow for future planning with an assurance of the funding being provided. Secondly, this would put a damper on excessive spending knowing that for an additional nine billions dollars allocated elsewhere the military would necessarily add another ten million in defense spending.

The guaranteed spending level would allow for a steadily predictable level of force in personnel with quality salaries could be maintained. Any military project given the approval of the Congress and signed by a President must be carried forth reaching a minimal number set in the initial legislation and must not be cut or diminished at the whim of another Congress or President. The example which has been most evident was the cancellation of the full production of the F-22 Raptor which was the fighter jet which would provide the United States Air Force with fighter superiority even over that of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter which is being sold to other NATO and allied nations. Some areas require a superior vehicle such that any superior training would be maximized with a worthy and superior weapons and delivery systems. Lastly for the sake of brevity, the United States military is not a food delivery force or a nation building force, it is a nation destruction force which is trained to be the point of the spear should national security or treaty require there to be something subdued or destroyed. Protecting civilians sent to nation build would necessarily be placed under military control for use of force, not civilian. When the military is to be used for any conflict resolution, the mission must be spelled out with objective requirements and definition of victory where the military hands over the rest to a civilian force and the military mission is ended allowing for a residual security force which also is not a food delivery or nation building force but a security force. The American military is the most efficient use of force to break and destroy things and only the engineering battalions build things; build things like bridges so the rest of the military can continue destroying and breaking things. Yes, there will be casualties, that is why it is called war.

Prepare for the True Face of Iran

 

Iran, or should we call them the English translation for the Ancient Farsi word we represent by Iran we discussed yesterday, Aryan, will soon be ready to flex their muscles and do so to great surprise of the Western World who have misjudged Iran every step of their development since President Jimmy Carter personally made sure the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini attained the leadership and turned Iran, Aryan, into an Islamic Theocratic dictatorship where a select group of sagely appearing Imams appeared to guide an elected Parliament and the elected President all chosen from a select group of candidates who had been vetted by the Imams who make up the Guardian Council who also are to advise the Grand Ayatollah who holds ultimate power. Other than the Guardian Council to a lesser extent and the Grand Ayatollah to a much greater extent, the remainders of the governance, the President, the Parliament are all simply trappings to give a semblance of allowing the people any degree of power with their mostly meaningless votes. In all honesty we can probably safely state that the results of the elections could likely be published by the government media three weeks before they will presumably be cast. Iran has been patiently biding their time and their awakening is close at hand and the world will never be the same.

 

The Iranians worked quietly, clandestinely, and with great care on developing nuclear warheads for their missiles working for that day when they become and announce their entry as a nuclear power. They know that with a fair number of nuclear weapons they can do far more and make demands upon the world. Nuclear weapons make one a superpower and with the right delivery weapons they make a nation far more effective and respected. The Soviet Union was considered the equal of the United States even though they were in economic ruination which eventually caused their inevitable collapse. Still, despite that collapse Russia is respected if for no other reason for their nuclear weapons and their ability to virtually destroy human civilizations. China became a nation to reckon with when they proved to have developed thermonuclear weapons and the ICBMs with which to deliver them to any point on the globe. Iran knows that Israel was considered the strongest nation in the Middle East due to their victories in their wars in 1967 and 1973 defeating Egypt and Syria in both conflicts and also Jordan in 1967. Their survival in 1948-9 was considered a miracle in the West and a calamity in the Arab World. Even with India and Pakistan their conflict over who owns what of the corpse of Kashmir changed and became more of a low level simmering conflict with occasional outbursts but any opening of the conflict seemed far more likely to immediately turn to mediations than escalation and thus there, at least, nuclear weapons had a calming effect as the alternative was unthinkable.

 

What about Iran? Will it have a calming influence and also cause their sponsoring of terrorism to also decline? These are very serious questions which should have been included in the nuclear deal and were not even an afterthought. Iranian influence through Hezballah by which the governance of the nation was changed and even the demographics took a drastic turn caused the Christians to flee from the terror tyranny. Hezballah was another instance where a nation, upon reaching a critical percentage of its population made up of Muslims, turned violent with outside arming and instigation. This resulted in the non-Muslim population who could leave and restart their life in Europe, Australia, Israel, New Zealand or the United States emigrating with no intention of ever returning. They went giving up their ancestral home in many instances and choosing to turn their backs on that history and with heavy hearts setting their sights to take root elsewhere away from the growing violence. Such decisions are rarely reached easily and require dire situations which tear at the heart and require a mindset which once the situation reaches that point you make the decision and, like a steel trap, close the past and step into a new future hoping that you might find some others who made a similar decision before you. Maybe you have relatives or were able to locate and land employment, something which always sets a mind into a better state when making such a traumatic decision. Still, the children, they seldom understand the reasons and have the hardest time at first but fortunately children are resilient; sometimes they have no other choice. This was the effect in one small nation due to Iran and their terror proxy Hezballah but Iran needed a base from which to operate and Syria was always known to be a pyramid turned on its tip and always threatening to topple in the slightest of political winds. After the mantle passed to Bashir al-Assad it became obvious early on he was not his father, not by a longshot which made Lebanon all the more essential for Iran. But soon all that will be different, won’t it.

 

Iran is heavily involved in Lebanon through Hezballah who they have armed with hundreds of thousands of rockets of various sizes, warheads, ranges and multiple usage types from ground to ground, MLRV*, anti-ship, anti-tank, anti-aircraft, multiple warhead and rumored to also have cluster munitions which are illegal under the international rules of war, something which seems not to apply to Iran, Hezballah and others when used against Israel. Hezballah is only a single front which Iran has been building to destroy Israel or to use against Israel as a distraction from other actions they may be preparing for elsewhere. They are also arming Hamas and Islamic Jihad as best they can with Israel doing what they are able to prevent such shipments. Israel had captured a few of the ships carrying arms to unload into the Sinai Peninsula for smuggling through the tunnels from the Sinai Peninsula into Gaza for Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Israel is rumored to have also bombed trucks in the Sudan which were taking arms shipments from Iran to smuggle into the Sinai Peninsula by ferrying them across the Red Sea presumably under cover of night. Iran has also been rumored to have contacted Mahmoud Abbas in an attempt to also give him arms if he would be willing to take directives as to when and how to attack Israel from Tehran. Abbas has made a number of trips to Iran as have other Palestinian authority (PA) officials. Read what one may but they have also made trips to Saudi Arabia and Egypt when Morsi was President. The trips were rumored to have been about collecting on promises for funding though such is only rumor and unconfirmed.

 

Other than Israel, Lebanon and the entire imbroglio which is Syria, the Iranians are also involved in a proxy-war with Saudi Arabia in Yemen where recriminations of improper tactics and the illegal targeting of civilians and using the same civilians as human shields. The civil war in Yemen would have faltered and petered out except for the addition of Iranian heavy weapons and other supplies as well as IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp) trainers and special operations specialists to aid the Houthis in their efforts to take control of the whole of Yemen. The Saudi Arabian efforts have largely been providing artillery and air support to the remaining government forces which have fled the capital city and are fighting to retain the southern port city of Aden. Additionally, for all intents and purposes the Iranians are the Iraqi government and control the entirety of the Shiite areas under government control. The Iranians by being the military command in Iraq they also are the ones placing requests for and more often than not receiving air support from the United States which had all but placed the United States Air Force planes and pilots under Iranian directives. This would not be so bad if the other sorties the United States had run against the Islamic State have largely returned with armaments still locked to their hard-points with none having been deployed as targets reported by Intelligence either were moved before the aircraft arrived as the intelligence was already dated. The Islamic State had figured the delay from satellite passing to any United States attack plan to reach the actual units which scramble their aircraft and they have the satellites timed so they move their resources as soon as the satellites have passed and before the orders reach the attack units. Thus far the United States is losing the cat and mouse game with the Islamic State and there are two main reasons. First the orders have to travel from the satellite intelligence reaching the surface in Iraq which is then forwarded to Washington for interpretation and orders to be cut after receiving White House approval. Then the orders are relayed back to Iraq where they are then passed through command and assigned to an actual Air Force unit which scrambles the pilots after the approved and required armaments are placed on the aircraft. All said and done, from satellite to aircraft is an hour or over leaving the Islamic State all the time it needs to almost casually move their assets to new locations and even return them to the originally determined location for the next satellite.

 

These efforts are restricted to the Arabian Peninsula and around the Middle East. If only these were the limit of the Iranian efforts it would be troubling enough, but alas there is so much more. Hezballah has been training terrorists in a complex along with IRGC units both providing specialist training to the terror units which rotate through the training area. The area has two separate airports, barracks and plenty of Jungle in which to train as well as a mock urban setting. The area is known as the Tri-Border Area which sits on the border area of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. The terrorist training area is also used by the drug cartels to further train their guard units, personal protection guards and any other people who need specialized training which the IRGC or Hezballah trainers are capable of providing. The advent of this training became evident very quickly as the Drug Cartels sent their most trusted personnel for training as soon after their return to Mexico there was a number of beheadings occurring with some performed and the heads later rolled into locations for the most impact to further enforce the threat the Cartels were to the public in Mexico as well as government law enforcement, courts and elected officials. Most of these beheadings took place largely within a hundred or so miles from the border with the United States as the American illicit drug markets are the main consumers of their wares. The training provided along with armaments including mines and anti-personnel devices could be used to make the main house safer from any encroachment by other cartels or law enforcement personnel. In exchange it is thought that Hezballah has gained free use and assistance by human smugglers to gain entrance into the United States and potentially even housing purchased and readied to provide the cover home for a terror group of individuals who may have an immediate assignment or they may be a sleeper cell of a mother, father and teen aged appearing sons who are likely bored in their high school classes which they must attend to retain the appearance of being a family with teenage sons. The Tri-Border Area has been used for decades by now and is a perfect location as it is very remote and each of the government’s claims that it is the other two countries that are responsible for security and law enforcement. With each government pointing their fingers at the other two’s responsibility to enforce the law, it is needless to point out that while each is pointing at the other two they are not bothering to provide much of any in the way of law enforcement over these areas thus leaving well enough alone as all three nations have no appetite for incurring the wrath of Iran and Hezballah. Make no mistake, should any of these nations take any steps to enforce the law against the terrorist and IRGC or any other Iranian forces training or waiting for orders to infiltrate the United States to carry out an immediate attack or join others who are simply lying in wait for orders some time in the future, the officials and military commanders had best watch their front, back, right, left, up and down as they will have painted a target on themselves.

 

The simple thing is that Iran with their world-wide reach through Hezballah and Hamas operatives as well as their own IRGC which was formed to provide a dedicated unit with the same size, financing and equipment as the regular Iranian Army to extend their reach beyond their borders would become a primary resource in such instances. The proof that Iran’s arm can reach around the world was where Hezballah, with IRGC assistance and possibly participation, accomplished the assaults on the AMIA bombing, an attack on the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) on July 18, 1994, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds as well as the March 17, 1992, attack on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires as a pickup truck driven by a suicide bomber and loaded with explosives smashed into the front of the Israeli Embassy where the blast killed 29 and wounded 242 others. The AIMA attack was being investigated by Alberto Nisman who left the investigation unfinished upon his suspicious death.

The day after Prosecutor Nisman was found dead in his apartment the morning he was scheduled to report to the Argentine legislature from what was initially reported to have been a suicide, we here at BTC reported our suspicions with our January 21, 2015, article titled Prosecutor’s Fate Mirrors Western Culture. The previous day, we regret to say, we missed the mark when we claimed that his death would be classified as a suicide and never investigated in our January 20, 2015, article The Death of Alberto Nisman. Though a prosecutorial team was assigned to investigate his untimely death and the circumstances surrounding this horrid murder, there was never anyone prosecuted and the paths investigated led either beyond the borders which was simply stated as beyond their prosecutorial privileges, something which would only have piqued Alberto Nisman further and his indomitable will to find the real truth no matter the obstacles or inconvenience to powerful people. It is really pathetic that a man who gave his all because of his zeal to follow the path of truth no matter where it led would have his murder swept under the carpet to satisfy crooked politicians, a terrorist group operating partially in Argentina in the tri-border region to be given a pass and to allow Iran’s implicated hand also to go unslapped. That is the saddest tribute a man can receive as to have his death be left unresolved as the result of an abortive investigation which was never given the honesty which he had dedicated and given his life. An upstanding and outstanding man deserved more.
