Yesterday, the US military reported that a Venezuelan aircraft followed a US Navy EP-3 plane “aggressively,” but no one was hurt in the incident.
This event supposedly occurred Friday, the same day the US rolled out new sanctions on top Venezuelan officials. The US report left out the details of the aircraft’s mission and where this debacle took place.
The Venezuelan government issued a statement in response, saying that the American aircraft had been detected in their airspace without alerting Venezuelan authorities, and was thus escorted out.
The US military report used this as a platform to malign the Venezuelan government and Maduro regime, and even took it a step further, blaming the irresponsibility of the Russian government for continuing to back the (democratically elected) Maduro regime.
Is this development at all surprising? NOPE. The US military industrial complex is just yet again attempting to instigate another endless war. Do not be fooled, its not about democracy and humanitarianism, this is about the oil and economic interests of the US and of Trump.
