According to a State Department source, corroborated by a video news
report, U.S. troops are already along Colombia's border. This comes
as Venezuela has reportedly moved military armaments and ammunition
to Colombia's border as well.
Meanwhile, Russia has
threatened the U.S. amid announcing its withdrawal from the Cold War
Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty,
following suit by suspending the agreement.
Although it's not 5,000 troops along the border; a source said the
U.S. was propagandizing 5,000 troops on
John Bolton's notepad to hide a
larger troop count of 30,000+ proposed to Colombia.
This writer's source stated that recently a former Pentagon official
stressed the fact that if the U.S. was to get militarily involved it
would need way more than 5,000 troops.
The former official was
reported by The Times.
"A military operation
in Venezuela requires the presence of between 25,000 and 30,000
American soldiers, especially since the success of this
operation depends largely on the loyalty of the Venezuelan
military forces to Nicolas Maduro," the official told The Times.
A news report by Vesti,
a Russian news outlet, corroborates my own source who stated U.S.
Southern Command (SOUTHCOM)
is already down on the ground in Colombia.
For those that don't
know, SOUTHCOM's Area of Responsibility encompasses 31 countries and
16 dependencies and areas of special sovereignty, which includes
according to its website.
The U.S. already has nine
military bases in Colombia, so to say that it wants to send only
5,000 troops to Colombia is a ludicrous claim!
There are already troops
These are additional troops that Bolton and the Pentagon want to
send to Colombia. Then there are 76 total bases in Latin America, as
of 2018, according to this writer's knowledge.
On that regard, the
maximum number of military personnel and contractors allowed in the
country at a time by U.S. law is 1,400, as The Guardian
reported when a Colombian
constitutional court ruled U.S. access to more bases in the country
was illegal because it wasn't approved by legislators at the time in
Further, a little bit of digging and you will find there was an
alert last year in February, where the former head of Southern
Command, Kurt Tidd, met behind closed doors with Colombian
Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas and other senior
In this meeting, the
Colombian president emphasized the importance for the region of what

A prominent place
appears to be assigned to two fast-acting US military bases
installed in the communities of Vichada and Leticia, in the
Colombian department of Amazonas, bordering Venezuela in the
southwest of the country, according to reports.
These bases, which are added to those already existing,
represent an important step in the military occupation of
Colombia, considered by the late US Senator Paul Coverdell as a
necessary preliminary action to invade Venezuela.
Also, the 2009 military agreement between Washington and Bogota
allows Americans greater access to military bases, including

Meanwhile, The New
reports that in September the Trump
administration held secret meetings with rebellious military
officers from Venezuela to discuss their plans to overthrow
President Nicolás Maduro, according to American officials and
a former Venezuelan military commander.

to help the plotters, the plot itself and intention is even

Just different players
and a different game board (country); the end goal is always regime
change and overthrowing the leadership of a country (the U.S.
doesn't have control over) by whatever means, even if illegal.
Although typically what
you will find throughout history the U.S. starts by placing
sanctions to weaken the economy, then complain about the people
living in poverty under the leader of another country.
We can even trace efforts for U.S. regime change in Venezuela back
to 2010, due to leaked WikiLeaks Stratfor emails
discussing such actions through
using the Center for Applied Non-Violent Action and Strategies

"Success is by no
means guaranteed, and student movements are only at the
beginning of what could be a years-long effort to trigger a
revolution in Venezuela, but the trainers themselves are the

They've got mad
When you see students
at five Venezuelan universities hold simultaneous
demonstrations, you will know that the training is over and the
real work has begun," Stratfor wrote.
At a meeting on January
28, on the new U.S. sanctions against Venezuela that target the

press holding a yellow notepad indicating the potential to send
"5,000 soldiers into Colombia."

claims that this is utter "bullshit propaganda" since the U.S.
already has troops stationed on the ground in Colombia in its nine
military bases, including the
Southern Command, and the effort to
start ramping up the invasion of Venezuela started last year.

military plans will potentially go into effect sometime within
the next 6 months while the shorter time frame is more likely,"
as South Command's new lead Vice Adm. Craig Faller just met in
Venezuela with little media attention besides the Russian video
Many may deem this as
propaganda by the Russian government; however, the source states the
meeting did indeed take place, even if the Russian outlet stretched
the facts about Southern Command by not telling viewers they
have been in Colombia stationed, the bigger story is the meeting
with Craig Faller.

This means that the
meeting in part was meant to be kept secret from the public, which
is always a sign that something nefarious is in the works.
However, what this writer did find was an article suggesting
Venezuela had moved its own military to its border, an interesting
coincidence of geopolitical moves taking place to say the least.
This also backs a meeting
by Faller and troops (Colombian and U.S.) 'protecting' the Colombian

this decision is already well decided by top brass they are
determined for regime change "war"; and to reiterate, military
movements could start as soon as within the next 6 months.
Of note, a press release
by the White House last year in November deemed Venezuela one of
Washington's top regime change targets, branding the country the
leader of a "troika of tyranny."
The Gray Zone Project, further reports:
According to the
Venezuelan government, the U.S. was also involved in a plot,
code-named Operation Constitution, to capture Maduro at
the Miraflores presidential palace; and another, called
Operation Armageddon, to assassinate him at a military
parade in July 2017.
Just over a year
later, exiled opposition leaders tried and failed to kill Maduro
with drone bombs during a military parade in Caracas.
The official narrative is
that the U.S. wants to help Colombia deal with a surge of Venezuelan
immigrants against the country.
However, the true motive
of the U.S. is known because John Neo-con Bolton
blabbed his big mouth by stating the U.S. wanted Venezuelan
"It will make a big
difference to the United States economically if we could have
American oil companies invest in and produce the oil
capabilities in Venezuela," Bolton told Fox News in an interview
"The reason is
seizing the oil of Venezuela, because we have the largest oil
reserves, we confirm that we have the largest reserves of gold
in the world, we have the world's fourth-largest gas (reserves),
have large reserves of coltan, diamonds, aluminum, iron, we have
drinking water reserves throughout the national territory, we
have energy and natural resources".
The U.S. has also issued
sanctions against Venezuelan gold, which the White House has warned,
"don't trade in
Venezuelan gold, amid claims Russian plane took 20 TONS from
country's central bank back to Moscow," Dailymail reported.
Despite this, Bolton has
stated, "intervention in Venezuela is not imminent" even while
seemingly threatening to send the current Venezuelan President,
Nicolás Maduro, to the U.S. military prison at the Guantánamo Bay
Naval Station in Cuba if he does not soon step aside.
Coup" of Juan Guaidó - PLAN B
Next let's talk about the implanted candidate the U.S. is supporting
in what's being deemed as a "silent coup."
As the Gray Zone
"Juan Guaidó is the
product of a decade-long project overseen by Washington's elite
regime change trainers. While posing as a champion of
democracy, he has spent years at the forefront of a violent
campaign of destabilization."
Some highlights about
Guaidó include that he graduated from Andrés Bello Catholic
University of Caracas.
He then moved to
Washington, DC to enroll in the Governance and Political
Management Program at George Washington University, under the
mentor-ship of Venezuelan economist Luis Enrique Berrizbeitia,
a former executive director of the International Monetary Fund
(IMF), Gray Zone Project reported.
Further, Guaidó has in
the past been a proponent helping lead anti-government rallies in
Venezuela and lead a political party called "Popular Will."
This political party, according to the Gray Zone Project, was

"key advisors of
Guaidó and his anti-government cadre."
The publication goes on

attended a secret five-day training at a hotel dubbed "Fiesta
Mexicana" hotel in Mexico, where they planned to overthrow then
President Hugo Chavez by generating street violence according
to emails obtained by Venezuelan security services, presented by

It's worth noting that the Trump administration's support for Guaidó

Russia Pull Out of INF Treaty a Month after Russia Bombers Flew over
Meanwhile, in other news, the U.S. has stated it will be pulling out
the INF Treaty with Russia.
This comes a month after
Russia ran a drill flying two of its nuclear-capable strategic
Tu-160 bombers over the Caribbean Sea and Venezuela during a 10-hour
training mission, presumably in response to U.S. threats to withdraw
from the treaty with Russia, WSBTV reported.
The U.S. claims the 9M729
cruise missile breaches the INF treaty.
Although, the U.S. previously announced it would give Russia 60
days, claiming that Russia has developed the new cruise missile in
violation of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF)
Treaty that banned land-based nuclear missiles in Europe during the
So, pulling out of the
treaty is a two-pronged move:
Both are working together
openly in combination with the socialist nation of Venezuela, which
also has sanctions against it by the U.S. government.
Russia plans to build a base and a military presence presumably in
response to the U.S. suggesting it will pull out of the INF treaty,
in La Orchila, Venezuela
according to TASS.
According to military envoys, Russian authorities have made a
decision (and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro did not object) to
deploy strategic aircraft to one of Venezuela's islands in the
Caribbean Sea, which has a naval base and a military airfield.
Ten years ago, Russian
experts and Armed Forces commanders had already visited the island
La Orchila, located 200 kilometers
northeast of Caracas.
Venezuelan laws prohibit
the setup of military bases in the country, but a temporary
deployment of warplanes is possible.
"It is the right idea
to include Venezuela in long-range aviation missions," military
expert Colonel Shamil Gareyev told the newspaper, adding that it
was also economically reasonable.
bombers will not only not have to return to Russia every time,
but also won't perform aerial refueling while on a patrol
mission in the Americas.
Tu-160 aircraft arrive to their
base in Venezuela, conduct flights, execute their missions and
are then replaced on a rotating basis. This is how it should be
done," he said.
Rodyukov, a Corresponding Member of the Academy of Military
Sciences, in turn, told Nezavisimaya Gazeta that,
"the arrival of
Russia's Tu-160 strategic bombers to Central America is kind of
a signal to Trump to make him realize that abandoning nuclear
disarmament treaties will have a boomerang effect."
U.S. Secretary of State
Mike Pompeo responded by stating in an angry rant that the
drills were a waste of public funds.
has sent bombers halfway around the world to Venezuela," Pompeo
said on Twitter.
"The Russian and
Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt
governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and
freedom while their people suffer."
In response to the U.S.
pulling out of the INF treaty, Russia followed suit one day later in
what many are deeming a race to acquire new weapons, or Cold War
Russia's president Vladimir Putin issued a
statement threatening the U.S. by stating that,
"Russia would build
weapons previously banned under the treaty and would no longer
initiate talks with the United States on any matters related to
nuclear arms control."
However, the country
stated they would not deploy those weapons unless America did first.
"I would like to draw
your attention to the fact that we must not and will not let
ourselves be drawn into an expensive arms race," Putin told
"Money to build the
new missiles," he added, "will come from the existing defense
"Our response will be symmetrical. Our American partners
announced that they are suspending their participation in the
I.N.F. Treaty, and we are suspending it too.
They said that they
are engaged in research, development and design work, and we
will do the same," Putin said.
It's also further worth
noting that Putin
recently stated that the threat of nuclear war
should not be underestimated as tensions have risen between NATO
countries and Russia within the past few months.
Putin added that U.S.
withdrawal from the treaty could spur "global catastrophe" and that
he hopes "common sense will prevail." (This was before the U.S.
pulled out of the INF treaty.)
Russia appears to be making preparations for potential war.
In April earlier this
year, a Russian state-owned television station
warned that some
Americans are preparing for a coming war with Moscow, explaining to
the country's residents how to stock their bunkers with water and
basic necessities in case a war breaks out.
This is visibly seen by Russia suggesting that it will build bases
in the Caribbean and build up its existing Arctic strongholds.

units and aviation guidance points on the Sredny and Wrangel
Islands, and on Cape Schmidt" in the Russian Arctic, Defense
Minister Sergei Shoigu said
according to France 24.
In October, President
cited China's potential expansion as a reason the United
States should consider quitting the INF treaty.
"If Russia's doing it
and if China's doing it, and we're adhering to the agreement,
that's unacceptable," Trump said after a rally in Nevada.
Meanwhile, China has
called for a calm between Russia and the U.S. taking a role of
easing relations urging the two nations for constructive dialogue.
"This treaty plays a
significant role in easing major-country relations, promoting
international and regional peace, and safeguarding global
strategic balance and stability," Geng Shuang, a spokesman for
the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
said in a statement on
the ministry's website.
"China is opposed to
the U.S. withdrawal and urges the U.S. and Russia to properly
resolve differences through constructive dialogue."
"China opposes the multilateralization of this treaty. What is
imperative at the moment is to uphold and implement the existing
treaty instead of creating a new one."
Those war drums keep
beating louder and louder with no signs of slowing down that growing
rhythm, which if we aren't careful could lead to a "global
As for Venezuela, it's up
to the will of the people:
hate or love Maduro
it's not my fight or yours, it's theirs.
But one thing is for
a person who
proclaims himself to be president without a single vote from the
people and has an extensive history of involvement with

That's certainly not
a healthy part of democracy...
