Hezbollah Drug Ring 

A Bizarre and revealing piece of news just broke on the BBC, and the Rush Limbaugh Show picked it up as well. It seems that a Drug ring busted earlier this week in Ecuador was a front organization, involved in raising money for none other than Hezbollah (or here), the terrorist political group that just suffered an apparent defeat at the hands of opposition parties in Lebanon, who's platform of throwing off Syrian influence was at odds with the Syrian supported terrorist group.
Police in Ecuador say they have broken up an international drugs ring which was raising money for the Islamic militant group, Hezbollah.
The authorities have declined to give details of the gang's alleged links with the group, but say it was sending Hezbollah up to 70% of its profits.

Ecuadorian officials say the drugs network was run by a Lebanese restaurant owner in the capital, Quito...

Police say that the gang were obtaining cocaine from neighboring Colombia and trafficking it to Europe, the Middle East and the rest of South America.

So what does it mean? Well, the fact that these drugs were flooding European markets means that it will be difficult for European governments to ignore this latest development in the war on terror, depending on how far this thing goes. They may not see the threat in a nuclear Iraq (or Iran), but it will be hard for them to deny the negative impact of Ecuadorian coke on their socialized health care. More importantly, it should serve to further galvanize public opinion in the middle east and here at home about this dangerous terror organization that masquerades as an Islamic fundamentalist party. Not that those are that different to begin with...
