Behind every great broken campaign promise, there’s an even greater dick broom.
Sometimes it feels like President Trump’s National Security Adviser is the one running the show. He’s pretty good at producing national security for countries like Israel, but he absolutely sucks at producing territorial defense here at home.
Case in point: he’s threatening Russia (a nuclear superpower) with military action over the troops they have stationed in Venezuela — a country he doesn’t own or have jurisdiction in. Why? Because Russia is dumping the dollar, and because Neocons want regime change in Venezuela. It’s not because Nicolas Maduro is socialist, but because Venezuela doesn’t comply with the global dollar cartel. Venezuela also has a rich history of antisemitism, and it’s Bolton’s job to make them atone for it.
Plus, Venezuela is geographically located near strategic shipping ports, and the US is paranoid about getting cut out of the global market.
If history is any indication, regime change in Venezuela will lead to an increase of Venezuelan asylum-seekers coming to America. Given that the Federal government is already beyond its capacity to process and accommodate these migrants, one is left to wonder how John Bolton’s actions are actually in the interest of American national security.
It’s almost as though they’re not.
We’ll be getting into all the latest!
