  • PODCAST: Terrorism in Latin America Threatens U.S.

    In this week’s Heritage in Focus, expert Ray Walser discusses the increasingly anti-U.S. policies in Latin America.

    PODCAST: Terrorism in Latin America Threatens U.S.

    In the past decade, Iran has increased its influence in Latin America. Considering Iran’s long history of bad actions, this increased activity in the Western Hemisphere should give Americans pause. This year alone, Iran refused to abandon its nuclear ambitions, its military sat idly by as Iranian students stormed a British embassy, it attempted to assassinate a Saudi ambassador in Washington, D.C., and now is aggressively expanding its anti-U.S. operations in Latin America.

    What is U.S. policy response? What should U.S. policy be going forward? Click on the link above to Walser’s answers to these and many more questions. And continue the conversation in the comments below.

    One Response to PODCAST: Terrorism in Latin America Threatens U.S.

    1. Lloyd Scallan says:

      Why was Obama so quick to employ the Jones Act which prevented foreign agencies from helping in the cleanup efforts after the BP spill. Yet, he is allowing the buildup of foreign troops in South America when he refuses to invoke The Monroe Doctrine as Kennedy did during the Cuban crisis in the 60's. Any wonder why Obama does not want to close our Southern border?
