Hezbollah

Summary:

Every counter terrorism analyst, policymaker and informed citizen should obtain and study the book Los Zetas Inc., Criminal Corporations, Energy, and Civil War in Mexico, written by Professor and border expert Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera.  The rise of transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) covers and includes groups like the Zetas, the Islamic State (ISIS) and even Hezbollah.  Analysts and policymakers can expect that these groups will copy each other’s successes and that these groups will continue to threaten to global security.

    Los Zetas Inc illustrates how TCOs can emerge in third world countries rich in resources but suffering from poverty, corruption and impunity. This is important to understand because groups like ISIS can evolve into TCOs and challenge the authority of weak or failed states.  Of the world’s three revolutionary governments, two are Islamic; Sudan and Iran.  In Lebanon the Islamic Hezbollah not only exercises political power but also functions like a TCO.
