The Failed Invasion of Venezuela

Last Sunday, an attempt was made to land insurgent ground forces on the beaches of Venezuela for the purpose of overthrowing and capturing President Maduro.

Two American military combat veterans were involved and are now in the custody of the Venezuelan government.

The details are still sketchy, but I’ll throw my initial thoughts out there for the record.

The “invasion” obviously failed at the tactical level. However, if you look at the overall strategic goal of the U.S. government (secure the Orinoco Oil Belt), this little botched raid just gave them the ammunition they need to take it to the next level.

The American people will want their veterans back, regardless of the reason they deployed to Venezuela in the first place.

Here’s the video I posted about Venezuela last month

The Escalation Continues…

Are we about to see a Gulf of Tonkin incident? It appears that conditions are being set for just that type of scenario. Plus, it’s almost election time in the United States. There’s nothing like a good-old-fashion military conflict to bring the American people together behind a President.

Is the U.S. government going to resurrect the term “quarantine” from the Cuban Missile “Crisis”? That term has been worn out over the past five months due to SARS-CoV-2. What will the new, friendly-sounding term be to describe a naval blockade of Venezuela? You can’t use the excuse of “Anti-Drug” operations to seize a damn oil tanker so you need a new term. It has to have the word “Safe” in there somehow with a side of “Freedom” to get the American people to bite.
