The Cost of Doing Nothing as Socialism Takes Over in Latin America

The region’s tightening relations with enemy powers such as Russia, Iran or China, the presence of terrorist actors such as Hezbollah and socialism taking over Ibero-America are issues that undoubtedly directly affect the U.S.

This past week, we learned that the Biden administration plans to remove the FARC from the list of international terrorist groups. This is a major blow to Colombia — a country now threatened by a strengthened FARC — but it is also a sign of the role the United States will play in international affairs during the Biden-Harris administration and what may happen in the region in the coming years. 

The position of millions of Americans and foreigners to reject U.S. intervention, in any form, is understandable. Millions of citizens simply do not want to spend their taxpayer’s money, much less put their men at risk, to solve other countries’ problems. But the crux of the matter is in the last phrase, are they entirely other countries’ problems? In other words, what is, for the U.S., the cost of doing nothing?

Drug cartels willing to do anything to get their drugs into the U.S.; human trafficking; caravans of thousands of migrants infiltrated by all kinds of criminals; the neighborhood strengthening relations with enemy powers like Russia, Iran, and China; the growing presence of terrorist actors like Hezbollah in numerous countries, and the quick and brutal socialist take over of governments, are just some of the issues that occur in Latin America but that undoubtedly affect the national security of the United States.

Of course, the country cannot become the one in charge of solving the world’s issues, but there are countless concrete actions that, taken in time, are fundamental to prevent the advance of enemies in the neighborhood. Watching idly as the neighborhood fills up with terrorists and drug traffickers is not a smart move. Taking the FARC off the list of international terrorist groups is a foolish move.

Juan Gonzalez, the U.S. National Security Council’s senior director for the Western Hemisphere, recently said that the president “has no idea who Gustavo Petro is.” This is just one more sign that the Biden-Harris administration does not understand the danger posed to the United States by the radical leftist leaders taking over Latin America.

It’s stupid to see your neighborhood filling up with criminals, drug traffickers, terrorists and believe that this is your neighbors’ business and that it won’t affect you.
