US Military Preparing Venezuela Takeover? NSA Notepad: "5000 Troops to Colombia"

-edited

John Bolton, National Security Advisor says 5,000 troops to Columbia. The White House explains "All options on the table

The US appears to be strongly considering a military takeover of Venezuela. Here is the evidence.

Colombia

As the President Said ...

"All Options Are On the Table"

Indeed.

After all, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Iran, etc etc etc interventions were such amazing success stories that we need to do it again.

By the way, and in case you didn't figure this out John Bolton Openly Admits He Wants Maduro Out, American Oil Companies In

Correction: I said Bolton was head of National Security. He is a top advisor.

Maybe they will be close in case our embassy needs rescuing. I can't imagine another scenario where it's any of our business.

C'mon. Stand up for the American people. Think of all that oil that will fall into the hands of Exon & Chevron, the people's oil company.

Maybe we can organize elections within 8 days in France, where the yellow vests seem to have more legitimacy than Macron. O, also in England, an unelected prime minister with doubtful backing and legitimacy. Then there's Merkel, whose immigration stance is opposed by the great majority of "the people." Let's not forget America, where the elites and the press and half the population and even the justice system considers Trump the usurper to be a Putin puppet. And this time, let's have international observers to grade the fairness of America's election process, b/c I keep reading they have worse quality control than most African and middle-East states, with open fraud and corruption.

I think it says "5,000 troops to Columbia..."

As in the GI Bill. College. Next generation of Ivy League doctors, lawyers and journalists...who are not snowflakes.

Makes sense. Finally get some peace in Afghanistan after 18 years and reward the troops with a good education.

"If this was a "shithole" country in Africa, to phrase Trump, we would not give a damn"... except for, there are a lot of countries in Africa that do have oil and we are there. The news doesn't report that until, unfortunately, four American soldiers were ambushed and killed last year and the alternative news reported that and it spread like wild fire. Well I guess the MSM can't hide everything and that's what their fuss is all about.

Calm down. That seems to me about the right ized force to provide security and evacuation logistics for our embassy personnel and ex-pats. Right now, China has seized all Venezuelan oil production in payment for China's "Belt Road initiative" loans. President Trump could be interested in interrupting those repayments, no?
