The US Defense Department is currently busy developing new military solutions aimed at deterring the Russian, Chinese and Cuban "influence" on the current Venezuelan authorities. This is reported by the TV channel CNN with reference to a source in the Pentagon.


The Pentagon has begun the development of "deterrence" of Russia in Venezuela


According to the source, the order to develop military means of deterrence was issued last week immediately after the discussion in the White House. According to the results of the meeting. US Defense Secretary Patrick Shenahan received an instruction from US National Security Advisor John Bolton to develop an idea to resolve the crisis in Venezuela. Preliminary work to solve this problem is carried out by a joint committee of the chiefs of staffs and the southern command.

It is noted that the holding of naval exercises of the US Navy in the region is considered as one of the means of deterrence. The main idea of ​​the developed deterrents is to show Russia, China and Cuba that they do not have unhindered access to Venezuela.

Earlier, the US head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, answering journalists ’questions, confirmed that Washington does not rule out carrying out a military operation to remove Nicholas Maduro and the transfer of power to the“ legitimate president ”Juan Guaydo in case“ all means of peaceful settlement of the situation in Venezuela are exhausted ” .

The United States accused Russia of interfering in the internal affairs of Venezuela after two military transport aircraft of the Russian Air Force were landed at Caracas airport, delivering Russian military officers led by a high-ranking officer to Venezuela.

        Yes, in principle, Maduro can invite Russia and China to conduct joint exercises. About a week ago, it seemed like there was information that Iran sent ships to the shores of Venezuela on a friendly visit. But in general, this Guaidó healed in this world. Perhaps it is time to deprive the mattresses of their trump figure by packing it on a bunk or expelling it from the country.

          Not important. He became interim president because he was the head of the faction that presided over the parliament and he was the speaker at that moment. He will not be different. There are many brave people in Venezuela.

        Only in Venezuela there is no answer for Syria .. this is a more serious question .. Syria is near Russia and this can serve as some justification for the failure of the states there, Venezuela is the backyard of the states .. and the failure here is the destruction of the entire voluntary coercive allied system being built USA last 30 years ..

Minimal actions from the United States, and again they do not spend money and big ones. And in Ukraine - they bought it at a cheap price, and again we are going through the roof with expenses.

And it’s good that if half of this came from the Islamic State (it’s forbidden and so that it dies faster), the rest is against the Sunnis who rebelled against Assad and his Shia-Alawites. And our Muslims, by the way, are also Sunni. Well, Israel added, though modestly against the background of other banquet participants. And to restore to whom? Just think about it a bit.

    That's right, American oilmen without Venezuelan oil in full ...

    "The United States resumed the purchase of Venezuelan oil"
    On April 11, the regular weekly review by the US Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA) was published, containing, among other data, information on Venezuelan oil supplies to that country.
    EIA Weekly Reviews provide insight into the dynamics of business relations in the US and Venezuelan oil industries, which are significantly different from political verbal battles. During the working week from March 4 to 8, the volume of supplies of Venezuelan oil to US refineries amounted to 112 thousand barrels per day. No purchases were made from March 11 to 29, the statistics of the working week from April 1 to 5 was 139 thousand barrels per day.
    The conclusion that these data allow us to draw is obvious: the United States simply cannot do without Venezuelan oil, since supplies from any other countries are not suitable for American refineries in the Gulf of Mexico. Recall that by order of the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, the state oil company PDSVA prohibited the supply of oil without prepayment to bank accounts controlled by the government. Consequently, private companies that own refineries on the US Gulf of Mexico are successfully meeting these conditions.

      That’s the whole secret ...

      Duc, apparently, that's the reason - while they are buying, with an eye to seat Guaydon in an armchair, and then, already, turn everything up. To a heap, mattresses were frozen Venezuelan assets in the United States, with the intention of transferring them under the control of this "svezhereg". Well, matrasoids are no strangers - they also fought with the Third Reich with one hand, and with the other ... they thought about peace, friendship and cooperation. wassat

      The question is who is buying specifically. All sales go through a Venezuelan daughter in the United States. And her assets are now thrown at all not on Maduro

    US Department of Defense is currently busy developing new military solutions aimed at containing Russian, Chinese and Cuban "influence"

    Are the old tomahawks and carpet bombing no longer working? Broken?
    What's newer than the strategy of strangulation, the contras and "moderate terrorists" they can think of, I can not imagine.

    And our best deterrent to the Americans is to assist Venezuela in trapping / eliminating Guaido!

    If Russia, China and Cuba act together in Venezuela, the mattresses will also have to sweat.
