IRGC and the spiritual vacuum of Latin American leftists
The following is a glimpse of the kind of thing I often see while researching the activities of the IRGC (writ large) in Latin America. Communism fails to provide for the spiritual needs of leftwing political activists, and the Islamic Republic of Iran seems to have done a pretty good job of inserting themselves and the Khomeinist version of Shiism into that void. (Either that or the IRI is throwing lots of money around and the leftists are whores, which is certainly possible, but for the moment I'll take the more charitable view).

“Iran Government Launching Spanish-Language TV to Target Latin America”

SNIPPET: “HispanTV, the name of the upcoming Iranian channel, has already made its debut on the Web, covering news in Iran, the Americas, the United States, Canada, Middle East, Europe, Asia, and Africa and also reporting on culture, health, sports, society, economy, and technology.”
SNIPPET: “Iran will bear the full cost of the upcoming TV station, which will join Press TV, the English-based Iranian channel, with coverage on all continents. HispanTV is expected to be based out of Tehran in a building next to PressTV. The station is expected to have a branch in Madrid, Spain and plans to open offices throughout South America. It already has a permanent contract with Venezuelas Telesur channel, but is keeping its doors open to other stations in the region.
The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), an Iranian state entity, plans to open an office in Brazil. According to the Iranian Embassy in Brazil, the project is ongoing but there is no set date for when the branch will begin operating. Brazils official language is Portuguese, making it the only non-Spanish speaking country in Latin America.”
SNIPPET: “”Our signal will reach all of Latin America and Europe, and may also be picked up in Brazil,” said Chilean Manuel Arismendi, who will be managing the upcoming channel, according to the Brazilian newspaper.”
SNIPPET: “”We work with more than 100 people, mostly Iranian colleagues, of course. Also, we have the valuable support of high level professionals from Spain, Peru, Argentina, Ecuador and Venezuela, all females, which certainly strengthens the incessant news service, “ said Arismendi, who will be running HispanTV, as reported in Tiroalblanco.cl.”
SNIPPET: “During testimony before lawmakers in March 2010, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), a component of the Department of Justice, said the Iran-backed groups Hamas and Hezbollah, which are designated as terrorist organizations by the U.S. State Department, are operating in South America.”
