Meanwhile in Latin America

Here is an interesting news bit I wish to share and I’ll tell you why:

Recent weapons purchases by Venezuela seem excessive and have raised concerns that it may be funneling arms to leftist rebels elsewhere in Latin America, the U.S. military chief for the region said on Thursday.
Asked whether Colombia’s Marxist guerrillas could have received some of the 100,000 Kalashnikov automatic assault rifles that Venezuela bought in June, Gen. John Craddock, who heads the Miami-based U.S. Southern Command, said: “I don’t know.”

Venezuela supports the Columbian FARC against the pro-American Columbian government. Iran helps Hezbollah face Israel (America’s ally in the region). Same conflicts, other places. How close can Venezuela and Iran become? I heard that Hugo Chavez was coming to Lebanon. I can’t but be reminded of when Cuba used to send troops in Angola. Same conflicts, other places. Those who understood it, went. Will the Iranians understand? How international can/will the Iranians become in their anti-American battle?
