That's right people.

We need our military here to throw out our tyrannical socialists!



I am pretty sure the military industrial complex is now running the defense department.

Gotta pay them bills yall!

I'm not seeing much of a build up past what we normally have there, I'm sure there is a little more due to the large aid shipments, but we do not have nothing as people suggest to start any kind of campaign.

Neighbors kid is deploying next Friday.

3 divisions will be there next week.


It does not seem to matter who is in power.
Like clockwork, a new war is started with every new president.


And it matters 0 how the citizens feel about it.
We elect people to end the BS wars and they flip the finger at us once in power.

People should stop the "we don't need war" crap and face the facts. Maduro won't move out just because people protest in Caracas.

It shouldn't take too long. I believe Venezuelan military forces will surrender as soon as they see one American boot on their beaches.



What about their own personal responsibilities?
Shouldnt they pull up their big boy pants and tend to their own affairs.


Warmongers and Socialists have one thing in common.
They want other peoples money and lives to go fight their wars while they hide behind a bunker or desk barking orders.

I understand sending in the military, it's probably what's right for Venezuela. But it puts a serious damper on getting Trump re-elected especially if it doesn't go smooth as silk.


What military operation since WW2 has gone smooth as silk?
I look at the middle east before we invaded Iraq and look at it now with unstable countries and millions dead.

By the time we are done, there will be unstable countries all around Venezuel with many dead not to mention many Americans coming back disabled or in a body bag.

The disabled will be told they are on their own since we are broke after spending another trillion for this war.

Thanks for risking your life chumps.

Forcing external military action on a country never helped the country's people, it only creates more tension between those that an external military intervention as a help to further their own agenda and the whole people, that just want to live in peace.



I would expect attacks against our troops also from citizens that do not want us there.
They will be called ungrateful no doubt.

not sure why you mention panama when it doesn't even border venezuela, and the way i see it the only reason US troops are in colombia is to prevent venezuela from invading as revenge for helping venezuelans leave the country in large numbers and sending aid convoys into venezuela, and the biggest reason is probably because hezbollah has a presence in colombia and is trying to spread their influence in the region and has committed multiple acts of terrorism and is smuggling drugs, weapons and is involved in human trafficking. we have many legitimate reasons to be in the region.

Just because I understand it doesnt mean I agree. In the geopolitical world its understandable. Unless backed by unseen forces they Veneuzualan forces will fold, as long as they is enough allies to replace. But yea dont like the cost in human sacrifice or monetary or domestic politics.

This has the potential to be such a # show I can't quite believe anybody thinks putting troops there is a good idea.

What this exposes though, is that it has zero to do with the economic system in place in Venezuela.
That is just a smoke screen to get people onboard to support attacking them.

China has a Communist Government and they are our favored trading partner.
The ones pulling the strings would have zero problem with a Communist or Socialist system in place just as long as the leader and upper management are friendly to Washingtons interests.


We had 0 problems with brutal dictators like Saddam when he played ball or the Terrorist Saudi Family just as long as they are friendly to our interests.

pretty sure the region has been unstable for almost 50 years now so invading venezuela wouldn't change much, i don't recall anyone around iraq or afghanistan that's any worse than before so i don't know where you get this idea of destabilization from. and don't use syria as an example because syria hasn't really been stable for decades, civil wars aren't a stranger to the nation and neither is terrorist groups or rebels and new phenomena.
