State Sponsors of Terrorism

Tell me again why Venezuela should not be added to the US State Department's State Sponsors of Terrorism list.

Venezuela's Chavez backing leftist guerrillas in Mexico

A leftist guerrilla movement responsible for many kidnappings and attacks inside Mexico is secretly receiving funding from Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, U.S. and Mexican intelligence officials told The Washington Examiner.

The group, called the Ejercito Popular Revolucionario (EPR), is "a terrorist organization bent on destabilizing Mexico. ... Splinters of the group are also adding to the problem," said a Mexican official who requested anonymity. The group, which announced its existence in 1996, claimed responsibility for the 2007 bombings of the Mexican government's Pemex oil pipelines, along with several other bombing attempts of a bank and Sears department stores in cities throughout Mexico.

"Chavez has been funding groups like these in Mexico and throughout Latin America," said a U.S. official with knowledge of the group and its operations. "These groups are nothing more than terrorist organizations and members have connected to other narco-trafficking organizations in Mexico, creating a very dangerous matrix."

And while you're at it, remind me again of the reasons why Cuba's dictatorship should be removed from this list.

A U.S. military official who has worked in the region said Chavez is using the EPR and other leftist organizations as proxies in an ideological struggle with the United States. One goal is the destabilization of the Mexican government.

"EPR has members that are former Cuban agents, Colombians, as well as others with an agenda to see a shift to the left in Mexico," the official said.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

    What about all the Muslims entering Venezuela and becoming Venezuelan Citizens within weeks of entering ?
    Could they have any other plans but to travel to the US as Latin Americans ?

    The solution to the hugo chavez, and castro brothers has been presented in many novels and movies, including Apocalypse Now. 'Terminate his command with prejudice."
