BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – During an interview with Trish Regan of Fox News this week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed that Hezbollah was active inside of Venezuela.

“People don’t recognize that Hezbollah has active cells. The Iranians are impacting the people of Venezuela,” Pompeo told Regan.

“We have an obligation to take down that risk,” Pompeo added.

Below is the short clip from Pompeo’s recent interview with Fox News:

Pompeo’s comments came just hours after retired U.S. Army Major General Bob Scales made the same claim, but added that Hezbollah has been in South America since the 1980s.

Hezb drug trafficking and rowing is absolutely PROVEN. It’s their #2 source of funding after Iran’s help.
Don’t you know that sheikh Fadlallah emitted a fatwa allowing to use drugs as a weapon to rotten the infidels’ civilisations?

Just look at the influence they now have in Brazil. Gee, and I thought that BushCo were psychopathic war mongers. Well, they were, but Trump’s neos are right there with them. Thanks Faux for spreading the…news.

This is a joke. The opium production is off the charts since US occupation of Afghanistan and the Mexican cartels are now spreading their violence into Mexican tourists/border areas. According to my map Mexico shares a border with United States. This is pure propaganda and the warmongers are fabricating excuses to justify their wars. They will have to step up their game if they think the American people will be duped by this bogus claim that Iran is controlling the drug cartels and our lives are in danger because Venezuela is only 900 miles away. I would remind these clowns… Read more »
