A modern day Bay of Pigs on our hands in Venezuela? Criss-crossing messages from the DoD and State Department with their “intelligence” assessments surrounding the genesis of COVID19. And Israel vowing to continue to bomb targets in Syria until Iran leaves. These are just a few of the items on the agenda during today’s podcast. After all, never let a good crisis go to waste.
In Venezuela, two former US special forces operators have been arrested by the Maduro regime during what they are referring to as a plot to overthrow the Venezuelan government. The US government denies any and all involvement with the matter. However, a private security firm in the US has taken responsibility and the company’s founder has claimed those arrested are “his men.” Venezuela has been a hot spot for US saber rattling over the last couple of years. Recall, just a few months ago during the President’s State of the Union Address, that Juan Guiado, was an honored guest of the President’s. Guiado is the opposition leader in Venezuela, who is also recognized by the US, UK, and several South American countries as the “real” President of Venezuela. Questions remain as to how this matter will be treated with respect to an American response to get these men back into the United States. Questions also remain as to how the Maduro regime will handle the situation. It’s these “little” skirmishes that can turn into something much larger – let us pray this does not happen.
A case of good cop-bad cop? When it comes to intelligence assessments and talking points around the genesis of COVID19, it would appear that the US government is working two different messages. On one hand, we have the broader intelligence community in addition to the Defense Department stating that the US does not know where the COVID19 pandemic actually started – meaning in a wet market in China, a lab, what have you. Yet according to General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the virus appears to not have been man-made. This is in stark contrast to the recent comments made by Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, where he insists that there is strong intelligence that the virus was made in a lab in China. Regardless of which may prove to be the case, it appears that the US government continues to plays its games of misinforming and dis-informing the American public. Reminiscent of so many other instances – such as the lead up to the invasion of Iraq.
We conclude the podcast with a discussion of Israel’s defense forces regarding their Syrian operations, African locusts updates, and the German Supreme Court’s ruling on actions undertaken by the European Central Bank (ECB), and what this may mean for the European Union.
