What is going on in Venezuela? I have three articles to reference in this post that span multiple countries involved. Needless to say, when Russia, Iran and Venezuela are involved, the news is probably not “good”.
Russia was at least involved, during the course of these wars, in supplying firearms to Iran to be used in Iraq against our soldiers. So the connection between Iran and Russia has been established. We also know that both Chavez and Ahmadinejad are EXTREMELY buddy-buddy and close with each other. It must be their shared view of U.S. “Imperialism” that binds their friendship/cooperation with each other. As if the friendly handshakes and hugs aren’t enough to cringe at, Ahmadinejad also said,“Iran and Venezuela are united to establish a new world order based on humanity and justice… those who today seek world domination are on the verge of collapse.”
Funny, they might want to team up with George Soros on that idea as well.
Now, we are learning that both the Iranians and the Russians are establishing missiles in Venezuela.
According to this article:
“Russia delivered at least 1,800 shoulder-fired antiaircraft missiles toVenezuela in 2009, U.N. arms control data show, despite vigorous U.S. efforts to stop President Hugo Chavez’s stridently anti-American government from acquiring the weapons.
The United States feared that the missiles could be funneled to Marxist guerrillas fighting Colombia’s pro-American government or Mexican drug cartels, concerns expressed in U.S. diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks and first reported in the Spanish newspaper El Pais.”
It gets worse, it wasn’t just missiles.
“The database also shows that from 2006 through 2008, Russia delivered to Venezuela 472 missiles and launching mechanisms, 44 attack helicopters and 24 combat aircraft, purchases funded by Venezuelan oil sales.”
With our border crisis always on the plate, now we have to worry about shoulder harnessed missiles coming over with the drug lords that are already killing, raping and kidnapping people along our southern states. Sprinkle in some old fashion shooting aircraft out of the sky and you have yourself an even bigger headache than we have already been dealing with.
We also learned more about Iran’s placing of medium-range missiles in Venezuela from this article:
“According to Die Welt, Venezuela has agreed to allow Iran to establish a military base manned by Iranian missile officers, soldiers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Venezuelan missile officers. In addition, Iran has given permission for the missiles to be used in case of an “emergency”. In return, the agreement states that Venezuela can use these facilities for “national needs” – radically increasing the threat to neighbors like Colombia.”
“According to Reuters, Iran has developed a version of the Russian S-300 missile and will test-fire it soon, as declared by the official news agency IRNA, two months after Moscow cancelled the delivery to comply with United Nations sanctions. Iran, in fact, has its own capabilities for constructing missiles that could carry atomic warheads. According to a study recently released by the International Institute of Strategic Studies in London, Iran is presently aiming to perfect the already existing solid-fuel, medium-range missile that can carry a nuke to hit regional targets, such as Israel. If a missile base can be opened in Venezuela, many US cities will be able to be reached from there even with short-medium range missiles.”
Those sanctions and negotiations between the U.S. and Iran must really be working well. I think Iran is shaking in its’ boots right now as evidence by this article.
For those of you who need a brush up on Geography, Venezuela isn’t that far away in the scheme of things:
So now we have weapon distribution on the ground, attack helicopters for the sky and medium-range missiles with the capability of carrying atomic warheads that are most likely in development in Iran.
It is like one of those Christmas fruit cakes with a bunch of crazy nuts mixed with a plethora of weapons, all directly to the south of our country.
If this is your first time hearing about all of these connections, it can be pretty jarring and alarming. What you should understand is that these are just a few of the alliances that would oppose us if a third world war were to break out. You also have North Korea and Cuba and a good portion of the Middle East to contend with.
Not to mention the big elephant in the room, China. Remember, we are in debt to them and they have had the goal of replacing the United States as a super-producer and superpower. So if push comes to shove, which side would they take?
