    From: https://www.foxnews.com/world/why-ru...ezuelas-maduro

    According to one U.S. intelligence and defense official, who was not authorized to speak on the record, the threat of “asymmetric warfare” looms large as the Venezuelan crisis deepens – especially given Russia’s supply of arms and equipment to its Venezuela ally.

    “Some clients of Russia got antiquated planes, Venezuela got state-of-the-art. There is a lot of candy that can be given away to cartels and terrorists, or used to flood others adverse to the U.S., such as Nicaragua,” said the U.S-based intelligence source. “At a minimum, they could harass the United States, if not cause a lot more trouble. This makes the Cuban Missile Crisis look like child’s play.”

    Interesting times....Airplanes full of god bullion.....gotta be a movie here someplace, eh?

    Nicaraguan or cartel pilots flying new(ish) Russian advanced fighters? That would be entertaining to watch. Who’s going to train them?

    I learned to fly in a Cessna 150 (didn't everyone), and I remember my instructor telling me,, " if you can fly this,, you can fly anything"

    I've never had a chance to find out if that's true.

    Reagan may turn out to be right,, with those Nicaraguan tanks only ten hours from the US border. How many did Russia give them,, 50??

    Yeah, your instructor exaggerated a teeny bit.

    Let’s not forget the maintenance, parts, and fuel for those Russian fighters. They don’t run on gallopinto.

    And the cockpit placards and instruments will probably be Cyrillic characters in Russian.
