US Military Aircraft visiting Colombia

It appears there are reports of continuous landings of US Military aircraft in Colombia going on at the moment. Reports are from Luna News.

The landings are believed to be in relation to Venezuala and a US desire to impose "peace and democracy" or basically install their favourite unelected candidate plus obtain lots of contracts for US Oil companies.

Seeing the end of a failed Socialist Government in Venezuela that is starving its population and causing abject misery for all but a handful shall be a good thing.

As some of you forget....we are a net exporter of oil these days thus don't really need that oil.

But....if you must rant....no since letting facts stand in your way.

As an aside, there is an impressive formation of High Balls to the NW of Maracaibo on FR24 just now.

There are strong ties between Colombia and the USA, the latter already have 8 or 9 bases in Colombia.

Who on earth are 'luna news' ?
