Venezuela plans a 'guerrilla army' against US invasion


www.brecorder.com

Venezuela is training a "guerrilla army" aiming to be a million strong by 2013 to fight off a possible US invasion, an opposition lawmaker said Sunday. "Plan Sucre" - apparently crafted with input from close ally and fellow US foe Cuba - covers the legal, logistical and other angles necessary to "transform a professional army into a guerrilla army," Representative Maria Corina Machado told El Universal newspaper.

So a quick recap Venezuela is starting to prepare for a U.S. invasion by building up an army of guerrilla fighters they hope to be a million strong by next year but they are sacrificing their regular army for the sake of their guerrilla army

What do you guys think are they just being paranoid or do their concerns actually have merit and if the U.S invades will it be Vietnam 2?

Asymmetrical warfare is a force multiplier (especially when utilizing the elements of "surprise" and striking at "decisive points"); however, I think it is a moot point as the US is unlikely to attack Venezuela (destablize? yes; attack? no).

Paranoid and attention seeking.
He suggests something like this, and the USA is put into theorised bad light because this is the lengths they're going to stop an evil American invasion force.

I have no opinion on whether or not a US invasion of Venezuela is likely...

What i do acknowledge though, is the intelligence of Venezuela.

History has shown that the US cannot effectively fight guerrilla warfare. Look at Korea, Vietnam...Iraq, Afghanistan. The US has/will pull out on all occasions.

Venezuela is playing it smart if they truly feel threatened.

The US wont invade Venezuela, or any nation that has the capability to invade and attack the US on home soil. They only fight against those who cant hit them back, because they are a bunch of bullies and cowards.

Venny has been on the hit-list, our government is scared of fighting in south america any other way than asymmetrically. Our troops would definitely get a new level of a$$ whooping against armed and trained, native jungle guerrillas bent on winning through attrition. And our democratic empire requires public consent so spinning mass carpet bombings to be acceptable to the public was proven to be a disaster in the late 60's.

if they need some help...i've heard that cluster bombings will turn a conventional force into a guerilla force in just a few short moments.

just kidding. Venezuela is under no threat of attack.

something that needs for America to be engaged in endless warfare is running out of candidates for whos next.

no one is next...its over.

updates coming this Thursday.

The US Britain,Australia,Canada,Israel and many other are preparing for these kinds of actions en masse how else can you go for global domination if not by invading anyone who shows any kind of resistance...IT is all getting set to kick off....lines are being drawn in the sand...and if someone like chavez does not do things to prepare then they are being neglectful of their own responsibility to their own peoples sovereignty.
I don't think Chavez would be paranoid to think that the US would not want to have access to it's resources....this is what TPTB are going after isn't?...Do they not want total and complete control of all the natural resources ...because then they can control all people completely....I mean this is just my Opinion and it is only drawn from researching the geopolitical movements throughout the world.

Hmm...

The problem, however, is that the U.S. can and does fight against guerrilla tactics quite well.

What no standing army can effectively fight is a lack of centralized organization. The only way to get that is when you have people who genuinely believe in resisting a standard army - because organized armies can and will end up killing their leadership.

It's the same problem Nazi Germany had with the French resistance groups "back in the day." It wasn't so much the tactics (also used by Allied forces when facing superior numbers) but the fact that they did not have central organization that could be easily targeted and that they were motivated by personal belief as opposed to external orders.

Which is why I don't think this force Venezuela is developing will be all that effective.

Though I don't see why we would invade them, either.

I mean... I suppose we could always just start annexing parts of Central and South America for #s and giggles - but I don't see it as a very sound idea.

Got to love Chavez... For those who dont know he is currently involved in elections in their country and has an opponent that is actually giving him a run for his money...

He needs something to distract the electorate so like all dictators they drum up some fale scare monger scenario and accuse their rivals of being a part of the plot.

Chavez will be phased out.. either by the voters or his cancer.. One or the other he needs to go.

Depends on whether they are letting Russia plant Nukes there.

You know how you defeat a ' Guerrilla Army ' ? Air power, and small fast ' Guerrilla ' patrols. You attack that team of 10 or so men, before you know it, you got a 2000 pounder dropping on your head.

They will end up fighting in Civilian Clothing just like the Taliban ect.

They dont have much of a choice.

----

You either hide with the Civilians, or underground. If you hide above ground, thermal will the death of you. If you hide underground ... you wont die as quickly. Air vents are distinguishable on thermal as well.

They wont have a clear chain of command either.

----

Best bet, conquer their military, Install a sympathetic government and the let natives deal with the now ' rebels ' while providing logistical support and cas.

The response throughout the Latin Catholic world would be alarming and dangerous. Millions would join the Venezualean cause like western liberals and socialists did to the Republican cause in Spain.

More than likely given the details of that "army" it is an army of his personal thugs that will be on call when somebody else wins the next election. He won't go quietly.

Maybe he got the idea from Obama's talk about a civilian army of young folks in the US. These type of ideas from leaders always seem a bit too self-serving and narcissistic to set comfortably with me.

As much as it makes me vomit in my mouth a little every time I have to admit it but I think Obama will win in the fall.

Therefore I think if a picture is worth a thousand words....



I think these two will need a hotel room before they fight out some fantasy invasion. Well there may be some invasion but not of a military nature.... Is it me or does Barry look a little too comfortable kissing another man?

Chavez has at least until 2016 to transition to his little Army.

He has right reasons to be paranoid. One by one regimes on the list are being taken out. Once Syria and Iran are done with the focus will turn to Venezuela, Cuba and others in South America. Russia and China can wait for now!

Chavez is a wannabe dictator who chafes at having to actually get voted in every now and then - he has a track record of using the US as an external threat to consolidate domestic support.

Y'all keep going on about how the US Govt would do this (false flag, external threat to sieze power, etc), blah blah blah......but when some tinpot loudmouth politician with delusions of adequacy actually does it in a small country you don't even recognise it for what it is!!

Unlike Iran and Syria, Chavez got elected by free voting. So he is legitimate until the end of his term.

Point is both sides are wrong in Syria, Iran or Libya etc. One side grabs power and holds it with ruthlessness. Otherside manipulates the elections by proxy and plants its supporting members in power and then conduct backroom ruthlessness that is shown as nice in media via false information and psych ops type tools.

Looting of the nations by one or other goes on and common people suffer, sometimes knowingly and other times innocently.

What is my solution? Make the best of the outcomes and scenarios and more so which I cannot control.
