The Pentagon: Russia's ties with Latin America pose a "critical threat" to the US

70
Moscow’s ties with three Latin American countries, Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela, could turn into a “critical threat” for the United States, reports RBC Statement by the head of the US Southern Command, Admiral Kurt Tidd.




The increasing role of Russia in the Western Hemisphere is of particular concern to us, given its intelligence and cyber capabilities, the desire to undermine international stability,
Tidd said at the Senate hearing.

He stressed that Russia is "a strategic rival who is actively seeking to destroy the US partnership with the countries of the region and undermine the influence of the United States there."

At the same time, in his opinion, Moscow’s close relations with three countries of the region - Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela - represent a special, “critical threat”.

Reliable relations with these three countries provide Russia with a regional platform aimed at objects and assets of the United States and its partners,
declared admiral.

In particular, he pointed out that these countries can be used by Moscow to obtain intelligence information.

    Belarus also has close ties with these countries. Especially with Venezuela.
    And do we threaten America?
    They would be better engaged in their own country, otherwise soon they will shoot each other in the USA themselves *.

          There is another small country that is threatened by all neighbors without exception.
          The United States is much larger, but the one-on-one feeling that both there and in the United States and in this small country are all determined by the same.
          They work according to the same scheme - the maximum monstrous lie for any reason to blame the neighbor for all sins in order to obtain, as it were, the right to destroy him for self-defense. And save civilization, but how.
          Fascist Germany and Europe against the USSR are a prime example.

        In light of the fact that America is very zealously guarding its national interests, especially at its borders, it is threatening. It is enough to recall how they once “put things in order” in Chile. Oh, if Russia as zealously guarded its vital space, and not squandered it under the head of such nits like Gorbachev and Yeltsin.

        But what's the point? medium-range missiles are prohibited by contract. short range barely barely hurt the uninhabited edge of Florida. it became impossible to collect intelligence after they introduced the encryption standard aes, and we didn’t get to intercept the communication of civil services, which is why Lourdes was shut down, it was as good as a goat's milk.

    Stupid ... Cuba, the "island of Freedom", well, yes, Florida and so on are close, but times are not the same as those under the Corn. Nicaragua ... Even closer, but there were no bananas of theirs in our stores, and never will be. Venezuela - 4000% of inflation, heavy sulfur heavy oil, which (by and large) is needed only for great need ... No, by golly, they are stupid!
    In particular, he pointed out that these countries can be used by Moscow to obtain intelligence information.
    This is clear to Babe Nure from Zadrischenka. And completely without any posts and corresponding salaries. And with the pension, with the expectation that Russia needs Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. And a hundred more parasites.
