U.S. military reestablishing the 4th Fleet involving South America.


news.yahoo.com

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US Navy said Thursday it has re-established the US Fourth Fleet to direct an increasing American naval presence in the Caribbean and Latin America.

The move comes as popularly elected leftist regimes, including that of Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez, pose a growing challenge to US influence in Latin America.

Beginning July 1, the fleet will have operational responsibility over navy ships assigned to the region from the US Atlantic and Pacific Fleets, the navy said.

Admiral Gary Roug., the chief of naval operations, said the decision to establish a separate fleet for the region "recognizes the immense importance of maritime security in the southern part of the Western Hemisphere."

No doubt Chavez is pissed about this. Hes building up his submarines and fighter jets and the last thing he needs is American presence too soon before he can implement his plans for a Socialist Empire.

Hes already justified getting planes and boats before the reestablishment of the 4th Fleet. Damed if you do, damed if you don't.

He will do what he wants regardless of anything the US does or does not do.
He is another fanatic who thinks that he is doing something special cause he spews his anti-american crap.

Too bad for him that he has screwed up so much for Ven. that he will be out of office next go around.

Oh great. They discover (allegedly) vast oil deposits in Brazil. Follow the bouncing ball everyone. We will fight closer to home for zeeee oil!

Rebels found with uranium
Hamas peace truce
disclosure of secret raid on Syria
Americans ready to come home (is the Western Hemisphere close enough?)
We are already deep in it with colombia anyway.

We'll take this hemisphere and Russia and China can fight over Asia and Africa.

Sorry for blabbing a bit but we all know where this COULD be .ed.

What a strange definition of freedom you must have. He takes over private companies, forces TV stations off the air because they don't bend to his will and you call this freedom? Yeah.....

I wholeheartedly agree, that's the first thing I thought of when I read the title of this thread. Yes, now that there is alegedly, a huge oil deposit down in Brazil, the US needs a presence there, to protect "our" interests.

Bingo! And it's actually two huge oil fields, with natural gas.

And Brazil and Argentina are also building a nuclear-powered attack submarine based on French plans.

Well what a surprise. Blow me over with a feather.
