US Mercenaries Arrested In Venezuela Tweeted To Confirm Operation With Donald Trump

Immediately after Venezuelan authorities arrested a group of mercenaries, reports began circulating that two of them – Luke Alexander Denman and Aaron Barry were actually part of Silvercorp USA, and both of them provided security for US President Donald Trump.

However, to make things even more ridiculous – Silvercorp on May 3rd, tweeted that they were carrying out an incursion into Venezuela with 60 individuals, and tagged Donald Trump in the tweet.

On top of it all, to add insult to injury, a journalist from RT reported on it, and the Silvercorp Twitter account responded saying that “mercenaries get paid to rid the world of Maduro shills like you.”

In a state TV appearance, Maduro said that the two Americans arrested outside Caracas were “professional mercenaries” named Luke Denman and Airan Berry, who carried ID cards for a Florida-based security contractor called Silvercorp.

Maduro equated their alleged efforts to overthrow his government to “playing Rambo” and “playing hero.”

Following that, internet users began openly mocking Silvercorp, but also uncovering that this was, in fact, not their first trip to Venezuela, they had been present when the concert in support of US-proclaimed President Juan Guaido and to promote US humanitarian aid was taking place in 2019.

The tweets and videos have since all been deleted, to attempt and cover the fiasco, however, screenshots come to the rescue:

In addition, it turned out that Denman and Barry took an airsoft gun to the alleged coup attempt.

And airsoft guns shouldn’t be taken lightly – they hurt. But at the same time, having 62 people, out of which even some are equipped with airsoft guns would potentially prove ineffective against an army of at least 300,000 under Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s command.

Luke Denman was interviewed and a video was published:

“I was expecting anywhere between US$50,000 to US$100,000,” Denman admitted, confessing he arrived in Colombia on January 16 in Rioacha in order to train Venezuelan deserters.

Maduro said there is no doubt that Colombia’s President Ivan Duque was involved in the military incursion that U.S. mercenaries attempted to accomplish. He also confirmed that Colombian President Ivan Duque ordered the expulsion from his country of people involved in acts of destabilization in Venezuela,

“Juvenal Sequea, Hernan Aleman, and Alexander Russo -the one who armed the drone to kill me- are now in Bogota. Ivan Duque will expel them because he wants nothing to do with those who failed,” the Venezuelan leader said at a press conference from Caracas.


And these mercenaries keep coming, as on May 6th, another one – Romel Mendez simply surrendered himself to Venezuelan authorities.

Mendez first surrendered himself to Venezuelan fishermen that were active along the coast of the Aragua state; they would then turn the mercenary in to the local authorities.

Additionally, it turned out that Silvercorp assisted in the 2018 Brazil elections.

After examining the social media accounts of the company and its personnel it was revealed that they had been present during the Brazilian 2018 election, at which the U.S.-backed far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro came to power, in already controversial circumstances.

CIA cunts at their best, but some of mercenaries are packing a few extra pounds and no wonder they failed.

Maybe they had stomach cramps and were more concerned with looking for an open McDonalds or a 24 hour all you can eat buffet somewhere.


“Was getting caught part of your plan?”

amerikans r incompetent and pitiful–another failure…a nation of uneducated rent-a-cops and cashiers….”the functional illiteracy and ignorance of amerikans has made us an international joke”. Morris Berman

It is for good reason that the international study Program For International Student Assessment (PISA), conducted every three years, results are difficult to find in the US media. It compares the test results of 15-year old public school students of various countries in the subjects of math, science and reading. When one considers how many billions of dollars are spent on public education in the US the ranking of the US is a national humiliation. In the last study (2018) the US ranked 36th in math, 18th in science and 13th in reading. There are actually delusional, brainwashed, downright mentally crazy people in the education field who don’t think these rankings are a concern and a sign of a totally failed system.


US is saddled with enough problems than creating more. The CIA has always been out of control and totally inept. This will only create more backlash against US, which has an arrogant history of meddling in Latin nations and coined the hubris laden term “banana republics” which is now more apt description of US itself.

The news around the US State Department announced by Elephant Boy (Mike Pompeo) – an active member of the 150 Kilogram Club – is that “we are going to do everything we can to get these men back to the US.” Yeah sure fat boy. Your pathetic, pathological lies are really disgraceful. These poor slobs are on their own.

Assad must stay

Jim Bim

Pathetic…..but priceless.

No hollywood for you guys, just reality.

What a bunch of fuckos, they thought that it was some hollyweird montage… trying to play war games haha, ended up detained lol.


LOL. I wouldn’t be surprised if Hollywood made a movie where these guys were heroes who fought courageously and were only caught by happenstance by a bumbling Venezuelan military.
In reality they should make an example out of these hero wannabes. But then Hollywood would make them out as martyrs of freedom.

johnny rotten

After the Bay of Pigs, here is the Bay of Idiots.

anti-empire.com has published an article in their “war” category, describing how the US marines r now relegated to irrelevance. I was shocked given that the US spends more on its military than the next 14 largest military nations combined—and this doesn’t include their 17 unintelligence agencies (no other nation has more than 4)….recommended


What the chances that Silvercorp is a CIA front? Probably pretty high.

Raptar Driver

They should be executed on the spot. This is the only way to deter further Aggression.

Assad must stay

Hahahahahhah that shmuck was so full of himself and so convinced he was a patriot and this and that and he gets captured, maduro should keep these guys in for life
