No troops to Venezuela, Send them all to the southern border instead. The Monroe Doctrine doesn't hold anymore. Let them fend for themselves, there are more than enough Americans that need protection and aid.

Anyone notice how most of the mainstream media in America is virtually ignoring the root-cause of what's happening in Venezuela? Not only this week...but ever since the uprising began.

They ignore that the U.S. pledged a $20,000,000 aid-package today, for citizens in need, during this upheaval.
Source: www.washingtonexaminer.com... eader

But the MSM has replayed audio of Trump's 2017 statement regarding potentially sending U.S. troops to Venezuela, many times this week. CNN then proceeded to have "experts" discuss it, like Trump has already committed our military, with the public condemning our President for doing so.

The media can't make up it's mind, is Trump a Russian sleeper agent or is he going to secure VZ against Russian takeover by supporting the democratically elected pro american politician that just won instead of Putin backing Maduro?

Trump needs a distraction.


Weren't you leading the bandwagon on how stupid it was that Trump wanted to bring home troops from the ME?




But, of course, anybody in their right mind would be against American military intervention


Unless it's Syria and Afghanistan. Gotta stay there because Trump.

Unlike the media I put in a retraction and clarified my statement.


That's nice that you changed your entire point, they are entirely dissimilar.


Bottom line if you go 'read' about it and not find an article to fit your agenda...


My agenda? What is my 'agenda'? I don't think I stated one.

I would oppose War in Venezuela with every fiber of my being just as with Libya and Syria and Yemen and Iraq and so forth. We do not own the world. The US and UK would face near-unanimous condemnation perhaps even on a scale beyond that of Iraq, and Trump would go down as the worst President in American history.

No troops needed. Send in a hit team. Take out that communist bastard and lets help these people get out from under that Marxist thumb. Get the oil pumping and put people to work. The Venezuelan people don't want handouts they want to work and have an economy.

If Trump decides to intervene and install the democratically elected leader, then so be it.
It would be a one day invasion, where the Venezualen Army would immediately back down. A MEU could do the job easily with air support.
Would be like HW invading Panama. Over too quick for the news cycle to care.

No. I will not support it.

However, if we do put troops on the ground, my prediction is it will be for one of two reasons:

1) Control of the oil which IS NOT to line the pockets of oil companies but rather to further destabilize the Middle East via destabiliing the price of oil.

2) So the Russians don’t do it.

I view option 2 as less likely. The reality is, Russia is a poor country. We spend like 1/3 of their GDP (last time I looked it up) on defense alone. This is why I don’t take that threat seriously - if we got into a full scale military engagement with them we would BK them quickly - so I don’t think they have the scratch for nation building.

Actual question to ask: Is Venezuela on top of our oil?

Answer: Yes.

Solution: Send in the Recon Rangers.

Everything the media says is so dishonest and misleading it's hard to believe that people are still falling for it.

You can't give a large scale example other than the Gulf War where we liberated someone since WWII and it turn out to be a positive.



The Gulf War was a positive for whom? The women of Kuwait? The people of Mosul?

The reality is Russia has never openly intervened too far from its own borders. Proxy wars, yes. Military advisers, yes. Open military intervention, no. That's the US's prerogative, particularly in the Western hemisphere.

Venezuela is falling apart due to internal corruption. Venezuela can only return to a stable state when the Venezuelan people stand up and fight against the corrupt imbalance of power.

There's nothing an outside state could do that won't look like they are emplacing a foreign actor sympathetic to outside influence.

If we or another Nation were to try and help Venezuelan stability, we would be looked at no better than what we are accused of by the left daily.

Just look how our presence in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria are perceived.

So, in short despite our best interests of having the best interests for others, we are only seen as occupiers. Even when asked to help, by the nation/s in question.
