The US State Department has posted a $15 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. After failing to unseat Maduro last year, the US is now accusing him of narco-terrorism.
The State Department announced the $15 million bounty on Thursday, along with rewards of up to $10 million each for information on five Venezuelan political and military leaders. Together, the officials are accused of “facilitating shipments of narcotics from Venezuela” by air and sea.

Well this is going to get interesting... The US Justice Department just accused the president of Venezuela of facilitating shipments of narcotics out of the country. There's now a $15 million reward for information leading to his arrest.

How generous of them with our tax payer funds.

How much would it cost to bring our leaders to justice?

Overthrowing governments, installing dictators, assassinating dignitaries, non-stop lie based wars, attacks, invasions and occupations since WW2...

I'm guessing it would be in the trillions.

Yeah but Just Cause and Panama in general were a completely different situation with entirely different precipitating factors.

Poor Pineapple Face

to a point, the U.S. used the country as a base for all the alphabet agencies for ops in other counties. but once the war on drugs really started rolling is when the U.S started going after him and he declared War on the U.S.

this from your you pine apple link.




"The saga of Panama's General Manuel Antonio Noriega represents one of the most serious foreign policy failures for the United States. Throughout the 1970s and the 1980s, Noriega was able to manipulate U.S. policy toward his country, while skillfully accumulating near-absolute power in Panama. It is clear that each U.S. government agency which had a relationship with Noriega turned a blind eye to his corruption and drug dealing, even as he was emerging as a key player on behalf of the Medellín Cartel (a member of which was notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar)." Noriega was allowed to establish "the hemisphere's first 'narcokleptocracy'".[1][80] One of the large financial institutions that he was able to use to launder money was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. In the 1988 U.S. presidential election, Democratic candidate Michael Dukakis highlighted this history in a campaign commercial attacking his opponent, Vice President (and former CIA Director) George H. W. Bush, for his close relationship with "Panamanian drug lord Noriega".[81] Kempe argued in 1990 that the U.S. provided much of the training that allowed him to seize control of Panama, and called Noriega's relationship with the U.S. a "sordid marriage of convenience"

I wonder if Maduro legalizing drugs in his country would make it harder to prosecute him outside Venezuela.

Abso-f'ing-lutely!

I just meant our use of him prior and the special nature of Panama in general make an apples to apples comparison to Venezuela difficult at best.

Not really disagreeing with your original statement.

Well I suspect there could be a group openly recruiting soon the way the ypg was doing in Syria. I don't think your allowed to fly with the weapons. Unless one was a pmc.

Poor bastard just didn't understand he's been on borrowed time since his birth as he's living on top of our oil.

Recently President Nicolas Maduro said that every business signing oil contracts with Venezuela should do so in a foreign currency other than the US dollar and that is not going to fly with the USA.
Especially after a 6 trillion dollar infusion to our economy the Venezuelan oil needs to be sold in dollars to maintane our global currency dominance, China is also trying to get the Venezuelan oil to be sold in the Chinese yuan.
This battle for the global de facto currency is as big as it gets, Nicolas Maduro is "dead man walking".

The US doesn't want their oil, we just need it to be sold in dollars.
And it will be sold in dollars, that is the life blood of our country.

Did we take the oil from Iraq?
No, we just made sure it was sold in dollars, this is not a theory, this is a fact.
Why do you think Gadahfi went down like he did, it was a message, a message Nicolas Maduro did not get, but he will.

Augustus, I would love to debate things but this is not a debate.
Bretton Woods Conference, fiat currency, the IMF and World Bank.

Under Nixon in August in 1971 the US went off the gold standard and went to the petro dollar.
When a country wants to buy oil and does not have a dollar reserve it has to borrow money, dollars, from the IMF or World Bank.
As a result our dollar is legitimized and we have "dollar Hegemony"
There have been so many studies, articles and exposes. This is just a fact, no matter what you are thinking the US will do whatever it takes to keep that dollar/oil relationship or our dollar will be no better than the peso without it. I really enjoyed my extensive readings and learned a lot about how the system was set up, no wikpedia link you find will change that.

For some reason this topic turns people off, I am not saying it is a good thing or a bad thing but it is the only thing that keeps our dollar legitimate. Remember hearing about the Weimar republic in Germany, That is what would happen here in the USA. The IMF World Bank Opec are all part of the system.
That is what the special relationship with Saudi Arabia is all about, that is why we do so many unexplained things like help Kuwait for example. It is the root of our foreign policy since we went off the gold standard.
