Fake news again. That bridge was never used and open to begin with.


The crossing was completed in February 2016, but due to tensions between Colombia and Venezuela since 2015 regarding smuggling, the bridge has not been opened to traffic

en.wikipedia.org...

And those fences with blocks have existed there way longer than they want you to believe. Only thing new there are those shipping containers.



An article below that writes about it.
How a bridge between Colombia and Venezuela became part of a propaganda fight

Cheers, thanks for clearing that up. Just seemed to me to be a cheap way to blockade a bridge.

Kind regards,

Bally

It's not artillery fire directed at civilians. It's 37 or 40 mm anti-aircraft fire. Per USAF CMSgt (ret).

What kind of maniacs would conduct military drills in Venezuela with the current crisis ongoing 😆



Sounds like intimidation tactics , if Maduro doesnt resign the violence will probably increase untill we looking at a full blown civil war.

Nothing will change untill the Venezuelian people dethrone that guy , or send him packing on a russian jet on standby on the tarmac.

Yes, but it is being used to strike a building. They have a lot of Russian equipment and had ordered ZU-23-2 [twin 23mm AA guns].

I'm looking at the 8:24 PM - 22 Feb 2019 video. If there's a building behind the obvious white one, it's very blacked out. Do you see one there?

Just to be clear in case anyone is misunderstanding the discussion on tracer rounds. They are just as deadly, they simply have some combustible at/in the base, and can be more erratic in flight (more chance of going astray).

Per the same twitter account, it has been determined to be drills, not firing on the population. No, it is not indiscriminate firing on civilians.

I saw the video.
If it’s a drill, it is a live fire ‘drill’ in an urban area.
Not something you see a lot.

The most obvious is at about 14 seconds where a round is seen ricocheting vertically. There are other views where one tracer seems to stay in the wall and burn.
A 23mm [ 0.9 " diameter] seems reasonable as larger projectiles would tend to penetrate and damage the building, structurally.

Your other thread about the military firing on a bus full of aid was never verified.

www.oann.com... Venezuelan Troops Kill One In First Bloodshed Linked To Aid Entry February 22, 2019 By Carlos Suniaga and Nelson Bocanegra KUMARAKAPAY, Venezuela/CUCUTA, Colombia (Reuters) – Venezuelan troops killed at least one person and wounded several others on Friday near the Brazilian border, witnesses said, the first bloodshed linked to opposition efforts to bring aid into the South American country against the wishes of embattled President Nicolas Maduro. The killing came as fundraising concert for Venezuela – backed by British billionaire Richard Branson and featuring major Latin pop stars like Luis Fonsi and Maluma – kicked off in the Colombian frontier town of Cucuta, where the United States has been stockpiling aid to ship across the border this weekend.

If SF/US intelligence isn't already in country fomenting a rebelion/organizing militias/subverting the government through aid, etc it is time to start.

Surely someone close to Maduro would be willing to put one between his eyes for a couple million USD. Chump change for the CIA. Maybe they'll just turn the heat up to 10 on him, exploit his known paranoia and cause him to continue violent crackdowns, you know... the true socialist way. Maduro's abuses being publicized is very necessary in forming an international coalition to back the legitimate non-socialist government of VZ National Assembly President Guiado.

Maybe they'll just continue treating him like Castro, keeping the pressure on maximum and waiting until he slips up just once and then..... no more Maduro.
