Binks,

Just a few passes from a Predator drone should do the trick, total outlay, $200,000.

Somethings tell me that a offensive with fully manufactured elements carried
out could be more than that?

I also question Hellfire feasibility from the latest I saw?

I hope it is safe to say that we won't be directly involved
so I'm thinking their only hope is a military coup. That
would probably be less traumatic than a general insurrection
and, of course, is a time-honored tradition there.

Some of the comments in that post are dire. Very dire. mixed in with imbecilic rants like seen here on ST. The difference is -nobody is being beaten and killed as the rantings go on here.

CNN has had journalists visa's to Venezuela revoked and three US diplomats were ordered expelled from the country

CNN is a CIA media store front and is 100% never ever trusted source from those in the know.

CNN is one of the worst lying news media around.

All the back channel units have known about Venezuela for a long time.

Obama and his zio fukhead henchmen are behind the whole shebang there to destabilize Venezuela as they are in the mideast.

Americans remain stupid as all hell to what's happening all over the planet .....

Precisely!

They are far too busy worrying about theories/shet that "Might" happen in a 100 years.

All the while, occurrences such as this one are happening, right now, all around them.

You been hanging around the "COZ" far too long, Werner.

Close buds. A beaming Obama. Chavez's draconian dictatorial policies are now coming home to roost in Venezuela.

Obama admired and liked Chavez , as he does Castro , Che Guevara , and Saul Alinsky.

Wernerism applies in the case of politics . Americans are very stupid. Our economic hegemony and pampered lifestyle has shielded us thus far from our own stupidity.

The question is: will we ever reach a point in our own country in which our collective stupidity ,spoiled lassitude , and brain-dead acquiescence eventually leads to what we are now witnessing in Ukraine and Venezuela?

This regime has been the darling of the "progressive" left, just like Stalin, Castro, Che, and Mao in previous eras.

They are always surprised when it turns out this way.

The lesson from the events in Tunisia in particular seemed to be that when you combine an educated student class with the power of social networks and press the return key, the outcome can be democracy. But when the machine malfunctions, the result can look like a protracted war with the potential to embroil U.S. forces. The protests in Libya, in contrast, resulted in a civil war costing more than $1 billion to the U.S. and NATO. When the machine breaks down completely, the result looks like Syria, or possibly Iran, where the regime has been extremely successful shutting the opposition out of the Internet.

To Moore, Venezuela looks like digital trench warfare with governments working feverishly to outmaneuver software makers and vice versa.

Today every citizen of Ukraine understands why our country has hundreds of thousands of policemen. Last illusions were crushed when riot police used rubber batons and boots at the Independence Square on peaceful citizens.

After such actions we realize that it is not enough to only adopt the Gun Law.
As of today Ukrainian Gun Owners Association will start to work on the preparation of amendments to the Constitution, which will provide an unconditional right for Ukrainian citizens to bear arms.

People should have the right to bear arms, which will be put in written into the Constitution.

Authorities should not and will not be stronger than its people!

Armed people are treated with respect!

This is another ST political thread with too much smoke and not enough fire.

Why can't any ST political thread remain intelligent and rational? STPTs are just as stilted as our national political debates. Indeed, a perfect mirror.

Nice pair of videos GDavis. Werner is right, Americans are stupid. Hilariously pathetic example of mainstream media. It is outrageous really, and insulting. But even more, it's sad to think how many millions watch and take it all in without questioning.
