Transnational organized crime

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transnational_organized_crime

Transnational organized crime (TOC or transnational crime) is organized crime coordinated across national borders, involving groups or networks of individuals working in more than one country to plan and execute illegal business ventures. In order to achieve their goals, these criminal groups utilize systematic violence and corruption. The most commonly seen transnational organized crimes are money laundering; human smuggling; cyber crime; and trafficking of humans, drugs, weapons, endangered species, body parts, or nuclear material.

Transnational organized crime is widely opposed on the basis of a number of negative effects. It can undermine democracy, disrupt free markets, drain national assets, and inhibit the development of stable societies. In doing so, it has been argued, national and international criminal groups threaten the security of all nations. The victims of these transnational crime networks are governments that are unstable or not powerful enough to prevent them, with the networks conducting illegal activities that provide them with immeasurable profits. Transnational organized crimes interrupt peace and stability of nations worldwide, often using bribery, violence, or terror to meet their needs.

It would seem that the United States is guilty of Transnational Crimes. A brief but current list:
– Libya
– Iraq
– Syria
– Ukraine
– Venezuela
– Liberia

NIAMEY, Niger – A resident says Boko Haram fighters from Nigeria have attacked a border town inside the neighbouring country of Niger.

The fresh violence Friday morning marks the second neighbouring country attacked by the Islamic extremists in recent days.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Boko Haram fighters raided a town inside Cameroon, leaving nearly 100 people dead and some 500 others wounded.

Abba Hassan, a pharmacist reached in the border town of Bosso, said the militants were repelled by soldiers after an hour-long battle.

The region of Niger where the violence took place is an area where refugees already have arrived by the thousands seeking safety from Boko Haram attacks elsewhere.
