South American is a continent that has been consumed with wars, diseases, disasters, revolutions, and an out of control crime epidemic that is creeping northwards into the American heartland. For decades, the potential for continental war has been brewing amid the squalor and insufferable decadence at the hands of military juntas seeking to rule with the absolution of military might.
If it weren’t for the United States, the people of Central America and South America would experience a higher infant mortality rate, lower life expectancies, and an economic climate that pales in comparison to what it currently is.
Women in those third world countries have four times as many children as their counterparts here in America. Family planning initiatives have failed miserably due largely to conflicts with religious beliefs. Overpopulation is inevitable, and already America is seeing the results of decades of arbitrary government mismanagement.
The increased birthrate is already crushing most South American economies. A discernible division between the poor and the wealthy has created an imbalance that is pushing poor people into poverty; while the wealthy are forced to hide themselves behind armed-barricaded walls. These wealthy enclaves of the South American elites are the ones shown on American television commercials urging tourists to spend their “gringo” dollars that support these elite communities.
Rural areas are not able to maintain their own economies as more of the middle-class city-dwellers transition into the rich farmlands of South America. Farming communities are forced to watch helplessly as family farms are forced out of business by greedy land developers. Migration into the already desperate cities leave few choices for income starved families. Yet; the cycle perpetuates itself because there are no jobs to be had in the cities. The cities offer little in the way of resources, since many coming from the rural areas have little technical skills or education. Parents are sending their minor children to work in sweat shops, just to put food on the dinner table. The substandard pay scales continue to feed this vicious cycle that swallows entire family clans.
In many cases; third world countries are witness to an increasing number of riots, civil unrest, and outright civil disobedience. These events play out on American television stations almost weekly, but the lingering images of burning cars and dead bodies sprawled in the streets are soon forgotten as another reality show distracts the population. Sadly; the South American elites have systematically clamped-down on these “peasant” riots with brutal and oftentimes, deadly response.
This brutality by their own government, has turned many people into the waiting arms of insurgencies that have operated in the region for decades. Under severe economic conditions, and lack of jobs, the South American insurgency has flourished, as well as gained popularity among the disenfranchised population.
As a result, the governments have lost even more control and started directing horrific violence towards their own citizens; thus creating even more insurgents who fight because the government control has effected their families, or displaced them even further into the cesspool of third world politics.
On top of all the woes in South America; the ethnic hatred remains as functional today, as it did in the early colonial days.
Brazil is mostly Caucasian, The dominant religion is Roman Catholic, and the official language of the country is Portuguese. Venezuelan's are Mestizo, practice the Catholic faith, and speak Spanish. Guyana's population is comprised of East Indian, Hindus, and they speak English. Meanwhile; The French Guinea are Mulatto, attend Catholic churches and use French as their country’s primary language. Multicultural diversity is oftentimes forgotten as gunfire replaces dialog.
Even out in the dark jungles of the rain forest; a warrior tribe consisting of the Yanomamo Tribe is emerging. These are the indigenous people that until the early 1940’s, never had contact with the outside world--the last of the head-hunter tribes. Their tribal villages are spread out across the borders of nearly every South American country. These villages play an important role in the transportation and protection of the drugs being transported through their respective areas.
The instability of the South American governments have provided rich opportunities for the major Drug Cartels. Throughput the years, the cartels have offered jobs, schools, and hospitals to impoverished villages. Starving families were put to work producing or transporting drugs. When a Chieftain, Mayor, Police Commissioner, or Politician couldn’t be bought—he was assassinated.
Since the American “War On Drugs” was initiated in the early 1980’s; the drug cartels ability to operate with impunity has been reduced. This forced the cartels to organize, train, and equip their own armies. Sources indicate that these South American armies have a strength that far exceed a hundred thousand soldiers. The sales of drugs financed these rouge armies. Weapons, equipment, munitions, explosives, and modern communications gear is bought from willing countries such as North Korea, Iran, and former Soviet states. Cartel armies are, in most cases, better equipped and financed than many South American military forces.
The commanders of these cartel armies have learned much from their Iranian and Korean Special Forces instructors. When attacked by the government troops, they systematically begin a terror campaign targeting the government soldiers family members. When Cartel leaders are apprehended or killed, government buildings, as well as civilian targets are hit with bombs, tourists kidnapped, school children slaughtered, and snipers kill police officers on the streets and in their homes. It doesn't take long for the underpaid soldier or police officer to understand how the game is played. This is one of the reasons the Mexican Drug War has spiraled out of control.

There have been many reports flowing out from the Nightly News networks detailing critical information about Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions. yet; it is rare to hear about the possibility that Iran already has acquired a nuclear weapon courtesy of North Korea, and smuggled it into the United States. Considering the following reports:
"Since September 11, 2001, DHS has reported a 41 percent increase in arrests along the Texas/Mexico border of Special Interest Aliens,"
According to the report, "hundreds" of OTM illegal aliens from special interest countries from countries including Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Pakistan, Cuba, Brazil, Ecuador, China, Russia, Yemen, Albania, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan have been apprehended in the South Texas region alone since September 11, 2001.
"Just recently, U.S. intelligence officials report that seven Iraqis were found in Brownsville, Texas in June 2006. In August 2006, an Afghani man was found swimming across the Rio Grande River in Hidalgo, Texas; as recently as October 2006, seven Chinese were apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley area of Texas."
"A jacket with patches from countries where al Qa'ida is known to operate was found in Jim Hogg County, Texas by the Border Patrol. The patches on the jacket show an Arabic military badge with one depicting an airplane flying over a building and heading towards a tower, and another showing an image of a lion's head with wings and a parachute emanating from the animal. The bottom of one patch read 'martyr,' 'way to eternal life' or 'way to immortality.'"
Confirmed Terrorists Apprehended
A few of the apprehended OTM illegal immigrants with confirmed ties to terrorist groups listed in the congressional report include:
Neeran Zaia - arrested on September 8, 2004 - headed an organization responsible for smuggling more than 200 Iraqi, Jordanian, and Syrian nationals into the United States. When he was arrested, U.S. Customs agents discovered that Zaia had a prior conviction for human smuggling.
Mahmoud Youssef Kourani -- pleaded guilty on March 1, 2005 to providing material support to Hezbollah. "Kourani is an illegal alien who had been smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border after bribing a Mexican consular official in Beirut for a visa to travel to Mexico."
Salim Boughader Mucharrafille - was arrested in December 2002 for illegally smuggling more than two hundred Lebanese, many believed to have ties to Hezbollah into the United States.

When SHTF, those people and families living on, or near, the borders must be prepared for an immediate infiltration of massive illegals, many of whom will likely be OTM’s whose only purpose is to kill Americans, and sow death and destruction.Survival groups operating in those areas must strategize, plan, and prepare for this eventuality.
