Paraguay Tri-Border Area Is 'Terror Haven' and an unfettered capitalist's wet dream

Ever heard of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay? It is one of the world's largest and most diverse black markets. They have essentially established a no-holds-barred "free market" where containers are not checked by anyone. Thus it seems almost anything can (and, presumably, does) pass through this global hub of the seamy world of underground commerce.

It is also characterized by its ethnic and national hodgepodge...just about every part of the world from Asia to the Middle East to South America to Africa seems to have a small community doing one sort of "business" or another in this city. Even al-Qaeda and Hezbollah activity is alleged.
