short on substance :
venezuela govt officials claim that a " mercenary atteack " launched from columbia by boat - has been " foiled " today
various sources - have pretty much the same story
8 killed , 2 arrested
my opinion - this seems like a piss poor " mercenary invasion " - several sources show pics of 2 modified 4*4 pickups with light machineguns
wonder how they landed them
and not much else
i suppose more will come in next 24
but i sign off with :
the dogs of war - dont obey quarrantine measures
Isn't it interesting that the US President has signed an executive order to assign the military to fighting the drug cartels? Why not beef up the DEA or the other existing anti-narcotics forces?
MIAMI (AP) — The plan was simple, but perilous. Some 300 heavily armed volunteers would sneak into Venezuela from the northern tip of South America. Along the way, they would raid military bases in the socialist country and ignite a popular rebellion that would end in President Nicolás Maduro’s arrest.
What could go wrong? As it turns out, pretty much everything.
The ringleader of the plot is now jailed in the U.S. on narcotics charges. Authorities in the U.S. and Colombia are asking questions about the role of his muscular American adviser, a former Green Beret. And dozens of desperate combatants who flocked to secret training camps in Colombia said they have been left to fend for themselves amid the coronavirus pandemic.
