An Iranian Satellite in Latin America
What Hugo’s Venezuela has become.

Right now, America is in campaign mode, and domestic matters (the economy, health care, government spending) are dominating the national conversation. But there’s a very good chance that Iran will be the most important U.S. foreign-policy issue of 2011, regardless of whether Israel launches a military strike against its nuclear facilities. Any debate over how to confront Iran should include a serious discussion over how to handle Tehran’s satellite regime in Latin America. Willful neglect is no longer an option.
