The Tehran-Caracas Axis
From yesterday's Opinion Journal, Mary Anastasia O'Grady highlights the growing ties between Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad--and why we should be concerned. As Ms. O'Grady notes, Iran has recently assigned an agreement that calls for "technology transfer" from Tehran to Caracas. Details of the deal remain sketchy, but military technology will almost assuredly be part of the package. Proliferation of Iranian WMD and missile technology to Venezuela? Don't bet against it.
