A Reminder of the Threat Stateside

posted by Christopher W. Holton

I do not subscribe to the notion that the Ayatollahs in Iran have seen the light and will no longer wage a global low-intensity war against America. They may be scared by what happened to their henchman Qassim Soleimani, but you can be sure that vengeance is on the minds of many of those in the IRGC and the regime.

And we may need a reminder that the Iranians and their terrorist proxies have a well-developed network in the western hemisphere, including inside the U.S.

Todd Bensman has probably done more work on the issue of terrorism and border security than anyone else. He just wrote an article for The Federalist that details that threat…

Weirdly absent from much of the professional speculation about where and how Iran will exact its promised “severe revenge” for the U.S. drone strike killing of Quds Force Gen. Qassem Suleimani is mention of the dead man’s highly suggestive hint. During a time of intense saber rattling between Iran and President Donald Trump in July 2018, Suleimani gave a speech during which he called out the American president: “Mr. Gambler, Trump! I’m telling you that we are close to you, exactly where you wouldn’t think that we are.”

While American media and citizens entertain escalating World War III-esque theories, however, honest analysis and prudence demand we consider Iranian threats much closer to home.

Here’s what is missing from the analysis. Iranian avengers, in the form of Quds Force-supported Hezbollah operatives of the clandestine “Unit 910,” are stationed in cities across America, set to activate pending distant command on target lists they have painstakingly developed over time. Hezbollah operatives also are positioned throughout Latin America, where American officials and economic interests are ubiquitous, at least as close as Nicaragua.
