"Russians Will Pay a Price": Washington Threatens Moscow Over Deployment In Venezuela

IMAGE: AFP 2019 / FEDERICO PARRA

On March 29, US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams said that State Secretary Mike Pompeo would soon come up with a practical response to a recent deployment of Russian military specialists in Venezuela.

“We have a very nice options paper of the various things that can be done in US-Russia relations. There is a lot of things that are on the list. So, The Russians will pay a price for this,” Abrams said.

President Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton warned countries “external to the Western Hemisphere” against deploying military forces in Venezuela or “elsewhere in the Hemisphere” in a statement made on the same day.

He added that the US would consider such military deployments to be provocations and “a direct threat to international peace and security in the region”.

“We strongly caution actors external to the Western Hemisphere against deploying military assets to Venezuela, or elsewhere in the Hemisphere, with the intent of establishing or expanding military operations”, he said also accusing Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro of trying to remain in power by using “Russian military personnel and equipment”.

According to official comments by Russian and Venezuelan sides, Russian specialists, who recently arrived in Venezuela, had come there to discuss defence industry cooperation between the two states and not to conduct any sort of military operations. However, it’s apparent that the deployment of Russian specialists were aimed at strengthening positions of the Venuezuelan government amid continued US-backed regime change attempts.

According to reports in mainstream media outlets, the deployed Russian contingent included Special Forces operators and cybersecurity personnel.

        • Dušan Mirić

          …because it is far easier to be a bully than to negotiate. They should learn something from Montenegrans, the latest NATO purchase. They have saying that the courage is to defend yourself from the attack but it is чојство (it is hard to me to interpret this word, it is something like humanity) to protect others from yourself.

    Paper options just like paper dollars, they are empty and can be circumvented and defeated. What happened to the US military?
    Russia sends military personnel in Venezuela, US response is based on options written on some paper…..blah, blah, blah.
    Why does not US send military personnel to establish Guaido?

        hey white trash – doubt there is a reason for any scum from over there to gloat – think about it and compare a dysfunctional country, moronistan (aka usa) with a well functioning europe where healthcare is for every one without extra charge and then russia, the country in the world with more commodities in the ground than any other country in the world. and moronistan – a failed state sold the the squatters in palestine! honestly ain’t much to be proud or gloat about, rather the contrary. find a rope and do the government a favour will ya.

          Maybe he is talking about Leonidas and the 300 Spartans that stood against the Persians at Thermopylae

        • Snowglobe
          • Jesus

            The movie is about a historical event that took place during the 6th century BC, it is somewhat fictional and deviates from reality…..given the Hollywood penchant for nonesense.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            the movie it is fictional yes. the event is not.

          • Snowglobe

            Sadly, what actually happened is a comic by Frank Miller was based on the historical events, and the movie was based on the comic book.

            I have been to Thermopylae and there are monuments in remembrance.

          • Tommy Jensen

            Its a true story about how Assad defeated Obomba.

            Yes you are correct. I give it up now.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        There is a top of the line Russian production movie called Furious (based on a true story) that just came out a few years ago, the real history of Kolovrate. Like the Russian equivalent of the ethnic-Spartan 300. It is a good lesson for any thinking about infringing on the right and home lands of the Russian people. It is one of the best films I have seen.
        Thumbs up to Russia’s movie industry for not only doing a good job but telling a real historic story without Hollywood lies. MOVIE TRAILER BELOW:

    • gustavo

      Yes, North american are shaken now like chicken now, and they are planning to use nuclear bombs to eliminate 100 Russian in Venezuela.

      • Jesus

        High ranking US officials stated on more than one occasion that if US is attacked conventionally they would resort to these low yields nuclear weapons they are building, 5 kiloton range.

        This type of response is indicative that US armed forces lack the capability to fight Russia or China in a hot war, in spite of having a defense budget dwarfing theirs.

    • Tommy Jensen

      Putin is right. Politicians comes and go but the bureaucracy stays the same. We are back to the Obama/Morell days where “Russia should feel the pain, just feel the pain”.

      Whatever. its nice to see Pompeo, Bolton, even Trump and shitty Elliot browning their pants.
      We again owe Russia for this laugh, all of us.

    • This Is Bad

      The only people who managed to invade or “Russia” in history was the Mongol Golden-Horde they got their asses kicked afterwards. Dragged back to East – Asia. You know one thing History has taught leave the Russians alone. At this rate it is quite clear the West is itching for a War, it will happen it may not be now but it will.

      • 1691

        I know. The whole world knows. The zionist will be reminded in a way they don’t like.
        It is encouraging to see their desperate attempts to start a war ignored for now.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Russia should turn the tables non-violently. Stop playing games Russia and deliver the S-400 system to Venezuela.
    Ship the S-400 system to Iran. Ship the laser defense systems.
    Supply best-Korea with S-400.
    Deliver Lebanon with a full set of S-350 systems.
    Ship surface to surface large missiles to Syria for self defense.
    Supply Iraq with S-350 missiles.
    Give people their Freedom back oh Russia…

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      and you should learn to think before posting all the BS you do and what russia should do. Stop watching holyshit movies and most importantly stop thinking like a moronic american. What you suggesting will bring more troubles and wars than solving anything.

      • You can call me Al

        Hey, hey – bit harsh isn’t it ?. He is only saying what we would all want in a perfect World.

        Now if you would like to talk Brexit, we can both push the extremes of harshness and use profanities is we like. What a fuck up !!.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          not harsh, just plain honest.

          • You can call me Al

            Yeah, alright, fair play, at least you are honest.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          to be honest with you, I dont really care about brexit, or ever given attention to what ever Uk is doing internally. not my business or concern.

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        The ability to defend ones air space does not create wars. It prevents them.
        Global war is already here because nations do not have the ability to defend themselves.
        Only a Zionist wishes nations to remain defenseless.
        I assume you are a closet Zionist.
        Explain to me how people having the ability to safeguard their own airspace causes wars?

  • Prince Teutonic

    “RUSSIANS WILL PAY A PRICE” – They are paying all the time so nothing would really change…

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      may I ask what exactly they are paying because from the point of view I see it, up to this point I have not see them pay, on the contrary they have a lot of profit of all is happening.

      • Prince Teutonic

        I meant sanctions US is throwing at Russia again and again. And also “assassinations” of Russian troops in Syria carried out by US proxies (ISIS for example)…

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          the sanctions hurt european countries most of all and open for american companies russian market so dont be naive and see what really is happening.

          • Prince Teutonic

            I would agree sanctions are not hurting civilian sector much but military one certanly. Remeber few years ago Russia was denied to buy already signed deal for French Mistral ship. Also Russia was buying composite materials from US for it’s civilian airline industry. There is also ban on electro-optical instruments vital for drone and jet manufacturing. Ukraine also stopped shiping gas turbine and diesel engines for building large vessels…

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            you live in the past my friend. The russians have compensate for that, way before the sanctions. In any case I have not seen any hurting as far russian military goes on the contrary.

          • Harry Smith

            We already can produce our own composites for SJ-100. Thanks to USA we have new Russian hi-tech industry. Gas turbines are now producing a plant in Rybinsk, as far as I remember. Anyway somewhere in that region. Thank to sanctions. And most of electro-optical US instruments, in the reality, are produced in China. But Russia has a very developed electro-optical segment. You can google for “shvabe”.

          • Tommy Jensen

            That means Russia is left with Chinese diesel engines in their military and cant do a s..t against the free and civilised world.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Bolton and Pompeo are biggest threat of USA.Their control Trump to achieved brainwash evil desires.Teir biggest threat to Europe and USA failed regime.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Russia must deploy more troops and weapons because USA is also encircling Russia in Europe. USA is in Estonia,Latvia,Ukraine,Poland ,Germany, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, China sea.Arm Venezuela with lethal weapons as USA armed terrorists in Syria. Their said non lethal but their weapons are discovered every day in Syria. Give Venezuela anti ship missiles, anti aircraft messiles and sea land mines.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Pompeo is gray.Bolton is just a tea maker wringle face joystick of Trump.

    • NWOD

      That’s ass backwards. Bolton is Adelson’s emissary to Trump – the court Shabbos Goy – selected for his unswerving loyalty to … the Tribe. The Orange Satan is Adelson’s errand boy.

      • Tony B.

        Trump is being blackmailed for his incest with his daughter by Mossad. All his high office picks are actually Mossad picks. It’s pretty obvious.

        • NWOD

          It’s a tough question where he is being blackmailed or is just servile for other reasons (e.g., loyalty). But blackmail would more likely come from his association with Jeffrey Epstein, a Mossad asset that ran/runs the Lolita Express and Lolita Island, where he hooks up “powerful people” with children and presumably records them. It could also be business interests (ability to call or not renew loans, etc.). And campaign contributions. Maybe Ivanka as well.

          Whatever it is they clearly control him, and Adelson is his handler (Adelson appears to be the main public handler of US Republicans).

          • Tony B.

            Yep.

      • Albert Pike

        ‘Israel it is expendable…’. There is a coalition between the Zionists and the Millenarists, therefore Israel has to be there – otherwise Moshiach can’t fall of the roof…

        • Tony B.

          Israel is just another Rothschild cabal agent, just like most nations in today’s world.

          • 1691

            Yes, but why the population of jewish ethnicity in occupied Palestine have been waiting for the lie of “greater israhell” to come true and supported it. Does it not make them complicit?

          • Tony B.

            Interesting question.
            I suppose that depends upon the desires of the individual person living there. It is true that many Israelis protest against the genocide of the original Palestinians but it is also true that some of them sit in comfort watching the “show” of the so-called IDF slaughtering Palestinians as though it is a sport – think the Roman colosseum.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          learn the facts then we speak again. The ones who control are in UK/US israel as I said is where the stooges and expendables live.

          • Albert Pike

            I am not disputing your message, that the ones who are in control are somewhere else. It’s just not the Zionists alone, which are on the mashiach King of Zion trip – because unfortunately so are the hardcore CHRISTIAN evangelist believers of the 1000 year paradise to come. To hold this coalition of hell together they needed this place called Israel (from a certain point on in the scripture timetable its inhabitants are indeed expendable) – otherwise the bible fake can’t work…

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            yes only to be destroyed, so the scriptures they wrote and sold to the idiots, come true.

  • NWOD

    So what happened to “freedom of navigation”?

  • Prince Teutonic

    My guess is some of the options they consider are connected with Syria. Maybe another faked chemical attack in Idlib and consequently missile attack on Assad or maybe attack on Wagner mercenaries or Russian instructors…

    • Turbofan

      nope ..to brazen.. Remember when Russian forces were killed in Dier Zor together with 60 odd Syrians by Western airstrikes and the Americans claimed it was a mistake? Days later the Russians fired 2 Cruise missiles at a secret terror facility killing 30 odd Americans , Israelis, Saudis, Turks working with ISIS. If Russian instructors are killed in Syria, something similar will happen..

  • Neil

    The United Snakes say all this stuff and get humiliated quicker every time. They thought both hemispheres were theirs up to last week. Assad stays, Iranian revolution stays, Maduro stays. This week Syria should re-take Golan Heights. Soon Palestine will have its land back.

  • verner

    moronistan (aka usa) is facing another humiliating defeat and they sure as a klucking bell don’t want that trumpeted across the globe but it will be – think afghanistan, think syria and think venezuela and think north korea and the dumb-beats in washington dc really would like to contain this last feck up, venezuela, from a broader public. the corrupt and criminally insane junta in washington really and truly is at its wits end.

  • NATO advance on Russia is forcing Russia to go simetrical on USA treat. AEGIS ashore is big treat for Russia. Imagine what Russian ashore with options to lunch Kalibr NK will mean to USA.
    Russia ainai going to take action against EU. In last 10 years Russia stated that they will target USA if under attack of USA. So EU is relatively safe if we don’t do anything stupid as for example providing USA with fields to operate from. Then tactical nukes will follow.
    Russia ain’t going to use direct force against USA/EU. So is up to USA to make their decision on Russia and the existence of the world.

    • Tommy Jensen

      US is forcing EU to receive tactical middle range nukes and even training EU to use them. Poland and Romania are willing to do anything for a few dollars.

    • 1691

      Whoops, sorry but I do not see the usa in a position to decide on anything, not even on their own country. Usa is just the army of mercs serving the zio-mafia. These hysterical screams from the front runner boys, like bibi, trump, pompeo, indicate that even the masters are in a panic mode.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      United Stupid Assholes, is a controlled colony, it does not get to decide the next move. her masters do and are not based on usa.

  • purplelibraryguy

    The problem with this sort of threat is that the Americans nowadays only have two settings–“subordinate” and “enemy”. If you’re not a fairly reliable stooge, you’re an enemy. If you’re an enemy, the US will do whatever is within its power and not too counterproductive to mess with you. Russia is already considered an enemy, the US already will do anything it can to nobble them without putting too much strain on its relationships with Europe or starting an actual direct shooting war.
    So its threats are empty. If there was a consequence they could readily inflict, they’d be inflicting it already. This is one of the problems with having no real concept of diplomacy.

    • Pave Way IV

      “The problem with this sort of threat is that the Americans nowadays only have two settings–“subordinate” and “enemy”.

      This is the precise definition of psychopathy. Is it any surprise though? The neocon Khazar Mafia sees the rest of the world exactly like this and they have been running foreign policy here (in the US) for decades. They have infected the checks and balances within the U.S. government to stop them. Getting rid of them today would be absolutely useless – they would just be replaced by some other group of psychopaths.

      U.S. leaders are too stupid or too purposely oblivious (being psychopaths themselves) to psychopath-proof the U.S. government. And Americans would just keep voting psychopaths back in to power, anyway. It’s like trying to cure your smallpox by choosing a different pair of shoes to wear, then concluding that you failed because you chose the wrong pair – so you need to make ‘a better choice’ next time. Sad and pathetic if we were safely isolated somewhere away from everyone else, but Uncle Sam is walking around in your grocery store licking the produce, handling the fresh fruit and coughing on all the other shoppers. Eventually, someone is going to get pissed enough to do something. I can hardly blame them.

      • James

        I suspect eventually another group will push the current ruling Elite aside and reorganize.

      • goingbrokes

        By “US leaders” you mean the political pimps of the international mafia that strut their stuff on the TV/Twitter/online/media. Those people are not leaders. They never were, and they can never be. They are pimps whose only claim to leadership is the ability to smack around abused girls when they say they want to quit being prostitutes. They are not even real men. The industry leaders are not “leaders” either. They only got where they are because they got pimp money from their CIA friends to kick-start their enterprise.

        The real leaders are something else entirely.

        • 1691

          I get your point. May I suggest you call them with their real name: the zio-mafia masters; (the rotschild&co, the Roman club, the Builderberg club). And let’s face something else: bibi, hillary, trump, bolton, pompeo… are front-runners. They are employees of the club.

      You laid it down perfectly. The United States has no “Allies” by mere definition of that term. Only Vessel States. Thus has been very apparent in the previous years with the ongoing conflict on the Ukraine. The EU has been straining it’s Economic trades and business cooperation with Moscow under Washington’s command, I have no idea how sovereign nations can be so fickle and submissive, you’d swear it’s some kind of ‘mass simulation’. Contemporary Europe has no independent Foreign policy on core Global affairs they just keep playing Washington’s card. It’s really ridiculous

    The U.S is trying to cover their corruption and collapse by blaming others, they did this to themselves, they should pay the price. (they’ll pay the price, whether they like it or not)

  • J Ramirez

    Russia should threaten Washington over deployment in Germany, Fair is fair ;}

  • John

    This sounds like schoolyard lvl screaming. I really don’t know what more they can do. Plus, declaring the western hemisphere off limits if lunacy. My take.

  • Uwe

    All the “armchair warriors” should know: The days of long range easy wars are over!

  • cechas vodobenikov

    empty threats from the collapsing empire

  • newshole

    China has arrived with tons of humanitarian aid. Pompeo ready to threaten them too?

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      why not farting is free and pay no taxes unless of course you are a cow or a sheep.

  • Nexusfast123

    The degenerates in Washington are going to blunder into a whole lot of pain.

  • Ishyrion Av

    US claims it owns the western half of the planet. And the other half too. Fools!

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Every multi-racial empire has claim such things. Babylon and Rome were no different. Neither was the Mongol’s nor Persia. Neither the UK nor France.
