Venezuela Seizes Abandoned Colombian Military Boats, Weapons (Photos)

The failed attempt of US mercenaries operating from Colombia to stage a coup in Venezuela continues developing with more and more details appearing.

On May 9, Venezuela’s military said it seized three abandoned Colombian light combat boats that soldiers found in the Orinoco river area. This happened several days after the government accused its neighbor of aiding a failed invasion staged by US mercenaries.

The Defense Ministry said the boats were equipped with machine guns and ammunition, but had no crew, adding they were discovered as part of a nationwide operation to guarantee Venezuela’s “freedom and sovereignty.”

Colombia’s Navy said that boats were just dragged away by strong river currents. Probably, US mercenaries also appeared in Venezuela thanks to ‘strong currents’ in the area.

    Something smells fishy about this story and it’s not just Biden’s stinky fingers.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is indeed part of a bigger Americunt terrorist plot that failed largely due to timely Russian GRU intelligence. The Russians actively hunted these cunts.

      • R Gfy

        You believe the US sent 30 guys in short pants and saddles to overthrow a country? Are you really that stupid. The US isn’t beyond overthrowing a country just like anyone else but this is a Joke…. I find it funny

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Most Americunts are even dumber than you think, the shithole has a history of Hollywood Jew stupidity like sending exploding cigars to Dr. Castro or sending a powder that his beard would fall off. Most of the western cunts are stupid as shit and no wonder power has shifted east to the mature old world.

        • jade villaceran

          youre dumb arent you, those 30 mercenaries will meet up with other venezuelan army/politician that are sided with guaido and if successful, the coup is localized and nothing will do with foreign powers just like how happened in bolivia

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Some of these idiots are brainfucked Americunts who are as stupid as their CIA. Even Newsweek has posted a list of failed and most bizarre Americunt failures just against Cuba alone in the past 60 years. The Americunts are like dumbass brats and really ignorant and stupid cunts.

          • R Gfy

            What would they need the 30 guys in short pants for if folks in Venezuela are ready to fight? The guy in charge of the raid had 5 years of military experience.

        • Peter Jennings

          I think the idea was to join up with others to secure an airport from which to render a democratically elected president to the US. They must have watched too many hollowood movies inbetween assignments.
          It is obvious that there is no longer much support for american ambitions in South America. The Columbian people will soon right things as will a number of other SA countries currently under US ‘protection’.

          Trump put a $15M bounty on Maduro’s head a couple of months ago. He is the president of the USA and that $15M is US tax dollars. Tendering something of value in exchange for a task being completed is a contract. It’s contractually the same as if trump offered $15M to a company to provide security in Iraq …. the only difference being the terms are the amount is only payable upon the delivery of Maduro.

          This was a US operation. They offered the money …. they set the terms. I agree it’s a joke …. welcome to US foreign policy in the 21st century.

        • Vidarr Kerr

          You are correct. There is no way these 30 guys were going to achieve anything, other than getting caught and/or killed.
          USA may have egged this on, but I highly doubt there was any official involvement and planning of this total joke of a coup.
          I could see Pompeo being told about it before it happened and him laughing and saying, “Go ahead”, but that’s about as much USA involvement, if any.

    • AM Hants

      There is a good article on Stalker Zone, coming from a different point of view.

      Was it set up to cause problems for Trump, owing to General Flynn being exonerated? Brennan, part of the Russia Gate fairy story, wasn’t he head of the CIA when Obama and friends targeted Flynn? So say, mates of Brennan set up the Venezuela Coup, in order to lead a trail back to Trump, would the US electorate turn away from Donald, in November? Owing to the stupidity of the plot? There again, Donald did not help himself by announcing the $15 million bounty on Madura’s head.

      Who knows what the truth is.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        But you can certainly believe how moronic and childish the Americunts are:

        In 1960, the CIA planned to sabotage Castro’s
        speeches by spraying his broadcasting studio with a chemical that would
        make him suffer similar hallucinations to LSD.

        Other equally insane plots included spiking the dictator’s cigars with a chemical that would disorientate him, hoping he would smoke one before delivering one of
        his marathon oratory performances.

        They also tried dusting his shoes with thallium salts — which would have made Castro’s iconic beard fall out.

        Like the hundreds of other bizarre plots against Castro, and other world leaders unpalatable to the US, all failed, making the CIA look like clumsy amateurs.

        The LSD-like substance was abandoned because it was too unstable, the
        cigars were never smoked, and Castro canceled the overseas trip that
        would have given spooks the opportunity to dust his shoes.

      • Peter Jennings

        If it was a setup to embarrass the Trumpster then he needs to fire Pompeos. There is evidence pointing to the fact that this ‘operation’ has been in planning for some time, even before any ‘reward’ for ousting President Maduro.
        If the bugling green berets have been floating around washingtub looking for backers and equipment supplies for as long as they did, Pompeos should have known.

        If he didn’t know that armed gangs were running around washingtub and planning to invade Venezuela, then he is probably in more trouble than he can imagine.

    Colombia =US colony—the recipient of the most military aid from the US excepting Israel, Egypt….9 US military facilities r now in Colombia created during the obama dictatorship

    • Zionism = EVIL

      It is a CIA run narco-state that funds Americunt global terrorism. Also historically, like Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, UAE and other pimpdoms most of Colombia is on stolen Venezuelan land, just like Zionists are squatting in Palestine. The Zionist cunts are also involved in drug trade, training the right wing death squads and emerald trade.

      • Vidarr Kerr

        The Ashkenazis have been involved in the drug trade for centuries. The opium crisis in China was the Sassoon and Rothschild families. The opioid crisis in the USA was the Sacklers and Rothschilds et al.

    The Venezuelans should have paraded the loser Americunt terrorist animals like this:

      Got more of these?

  • Robbie Red

    Same as the drug shipments probably , for every one busted ten will have got through…..

    • good american

      Sometimes they allow a small one to get caught while the bigger and better get through while the focus is elsewhere.

      • Robbie Red

        exactly – probably return loads :- coke outbound, guns & guerillas inbound

    History of Americunt CIA dumbasses attempts against Cuban leadership, this is beyond funny:

    Perhaps the most famous attempt to kill Castro came in 1960 when the CIA poisoned a box of his favorite cigars. Then the CIA idiots followed it up with used a series of middlemen to enlist two gangsters to help with Castro’s removal.

    The agency was willing to pay $150,000 (at least $1.2 million in today’s money), according to the Church Committee’s report. These mobsters were Sam Giancana, the boss of the Chicago mob, and Santos
    Trafficant, the head of the mob’s Cuban operations. Both of them were members of the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list and wanted by at least three State police forces, but that did not deter the incompetent CIA.

    Undeterred, the CIA tried an even more elaborate plan in 1963.Intelligence officials thought they could use Castro’s love of scuba-diving to topple him. They planned to hide explosives inside a large seashell and paint it with exotic colors to lure the attention of the ocean-loving communist.

    The same year, the CIA planned to contaminate one of Castro’s diving suits with a fungus that would produce a chronic and debilitating skin disease.

    The diving suit, as well as an infected breathing apparatus, was meant to be given to Castro by the American lawyer James Donovan, who had been involved in hostage negotiations with the Cuban. leader. Then they hired prostitutes to poison Dr. Castro, the most famous being Marita Lorenz.. When all the plans failed they tried to a have a US right-wing Senator present a poisoned pen to Fidel Castro. Most of these hair brained plots were discovered and thwarted by Cuban counter-intelligence, considered to the best in Latin America and with close collaboration with Russian and Chinese intelligence services.

    The Venezuelan people should be on the lookout for more enemy equipment that “gets carried away by river currents.” Who ever financed the three speedboats, two M2 .50 caliber and four M60E3 7.62 mm. machineguns just lost 100% of their investment, plus the earlier captured items. Expect more goodies in the very near future.
