While we’re wallowing in scandals in the USA, including the State Department’s Benghazi debacle, and while the Venezuelan people don’t even have toilet paper,
Yesterday, the Venezuelan government conducted the test launch of an Otomat missile, model MK2.
Eighteen of these missiles have been restored, thanks to Cuban specialists, for use by Venezuela’s Bolivarian Armed Forces.
Venezuela’s appointed leader, Nicolas Maduro, announced the launch (and Cuba’s support) with much fanfare, as well as the upcoming restoration of AMX 3 light tanks and EE-11 Urutú armored personnel carriers.
Nothing to look here; Of course, the countries within firing range and the users of the now-expanding Panama Canal may have reason to worry.
Surely the Venezuelan regime will claim it’s all for peaceful purposes, like their soon-to-be-nuclear pals the Iranians, who still have their direct flights to Caracas.
