Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: The Latin American Despots and Tyrants Tour

"When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle." - Edmund Burke

 Ahmadinejad and Raul Castro

Iranian despot, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is to visit Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and Ecuador in a Latin America tour in the second week of January 2012. It should be titled the despots and tyrants tour. Cuba has the oldest dictatorship in the hemisphere. The Sandinistas in Nicaragua just blatantly and violently stole the elections in that Central American country. Venezuela is headed down the path to a Cuban-style dictatorship and Ecuador is not far behind.

Add to this reports that Cuban, Venezuelan and Iranians have been plotting cyber-attacks on the United States and their is even more reason for concern. The Washington Times reported that:
U.S. officials are investigating reports that Iranian and Venezuelan diplomats in Mexico were involved in planned cyberattacks against U.S. targets, including nuclear power plants.


Background on Univision report

The details arose in an investigative report filed by the hispanic network Univsion and according to them:
A former computer instructor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico told Univision that he was recruited by a professor there in 2006 to organize a group of student hackers to carry out cyberattacks against the United States, initially at the behest of the Cuban Embassy. In an undercover sting, instructor Juan Carlos Munoz Ledo and several selected students infiltrated the hackers and secretly videotaped the Iranian and Venezuelan diplomats.
