The other thread to this I linked you to earlier went into that to some detail.
Do you guys actually READ posts here? Making a habit of not doing so? Well lets just say...you'll miss stuff. There are at least two thread on ATS from the last few days where people have covered the topic of possible military movement to Costa Rica in pretty great detail. ATS is always a great place to start in cross-referencing facts about a lead. But carry on....

That's a very good point on why Costa Rica if we're going after Venezuela. Colombia, which is close enough ally to agree to help stage for a strike on Venezuela would be a more logical choice. The Dutch also control the island, I forget its name very near Venezuela where Chavez was taken to in the last coup in the early Bush years. But we don't know where the ships are really heading at this point - at least not until word comes that somebody's spotted them or they arrive. They might be heading further south. Damn, just know about this stuff at this point. BTW, I've found Sorcha Faal to be right on at least a full 1% of what I've seen!
The decision authorizing the patrol of Costa Rican waters by U.S. warships is being contested by a group of legislators, headed by Gloria Bejarano, who filed an action of unconstitutionality with the Sala Constitucional (Costa Rica's constitutional court).The legislators believe the authorization that was voted on and granted last week for the entry of 46 naval warships, 200 helicopters, war planes and 7.000 Marines as confirmed by the president of the Legislative Assembly, Gerardo Villanueva, violates Costa Rica's Political Constitution.

From Appearances, this move indicates that the navy is moving most assets from the gulf, out of fear of a methane release/tsunami. A national disaster of this magnitude would be an inviting opportunity for our enemies to make a move (never let a chrisis go to waste, as the admin. puts it), hence a bold defensive statement to both the Russians and Chinese, in anticipation of such.
