"The Bush administration has lodged a formal protest with Russia for agreeing to provide the government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez more than
100,000 AK-47 rifles that U.S. officials believe could be used to aid left-wing uprisings in Latin America.
U.S. intelligence estimates there are now 15,000 Cuban officials in Venezuela.
The arms deal with Russia does not call only for AK-47s. Russia will also supply MiG-29 fighters and attack helicopters. Additionally, U.S.
intelligence believes the AK-47 buy may eventually reach 300,000 rifles. "
After Syria and Iran, it may be time to turn our military loose on south america and perhaps even cuba. Anyone remember the movie "Red Dawn"?
