Then there are more. Washington post also reporting, ‘5,000 troops’: Photo of John Bolton’s notes raises questions about U.S. military role in Venezuela crisis..
National security adviser John Bolton appeared to disclose confidential notes written on a yellow pad Monday that included a plan to send U.S. troops to Colombia amid escalating tensions with Venezuela.

During a briefing at the White House to announce sanctions against Venezuela’s oil industry, Bolton held the notepad against his jacket with its pages facing outward.

Scrawled in tight print at the top of the cover page were two items: “Afghanistan -> Welcome the Talks,” an apparent reference to ongoing peace negotiations with the Taliban, and “5,000 troops to Colombia.”

Pentagon officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, said the Defense Department hadn’t received any orders to this effect.

meanwhile there are the rumor that 20 tons of gold was being loaded on a russian commercial jet at the airport.

mabuuro, said if the u.s. invades it would be a "latin american Vietnam ".

what does a "latin american vietnam" look like?

i dont see any latin americans charging machine gun nests by the thousands, day after day, year after year, knowing they are all going to die at a 10 to 1 ratio. diffrent sort of culture maburro, and if you don't know that you are in trouble.


FYI, Trumps sudden interest in latin american politics is pretty obvious. one word: FLORIDA

pence is going to hold a rally in florida. get that latino, anti-cuba regime, anti-venezuela regime fired up for 2020.

“Juan Guaidó is a character that has been created for this circumstance,”
You could probably say that about any political leader.
I'm sure as a 15 yr old the vargas mudslide in 1999 in his hometown and Chavez governments inept role in handing it also played a role in shaping his views and where he was heading in life.

Maybe he should have just gone to see a shrink in order to deal with his childhood trauma instead of proclaiming himself president of Venezuela -- after a single phone call from Mike Pence? :)

Maybe, even his own mother didn't know what he was up to, apparantly, but if it wasn't him it would have been someone else anyway .

He didn't proclaim himself, he was actually elected by the National Assembly.

It's like your MP waking up one morning, looking at himself in the mirror, and thinking, well, my ass is just as sculpted as Trudeau's, yeah. I think I'm just going to go ahead and proclaim myself the prime-minister today. :)

Its a bit more complicated than that. According to the constitution, the head of the Assembly becomes president of the country if the president is elected fraudulently, which is pretty much the international consensus (outside of Moscow and Beijing, at least) regarding the last election.
