Pindo Navy “Ready” For Venezuela Conflict, Says Commander
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Aug 21 2019

Adm Craig Faller, head of SOUTHCOM, said Tuesday that the Navy must be ready to “do what needs to be done” on Venezuela. Faller told reporters:

I won’t speak to details of what we’re planning and what we’re doing, but we remain ready to implement policy decisions, and we remain on the balls of our feet. The Pindosi navy is the most powerful navy in the world. If a policy decision is made to deploy the navy, I’m convinced that we’ll be able to do what needs to be done.

Faller made the remarks in Rio de Janeiro as Pindostan launched UNITAS 2019, a multinational war exercise that is conducted annually in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The annual war exercise is being conducted off the coast of Brazil until Aug 30. Faller said:

UNITAS 2019 sends a message to Maduro and other partners that don’t share the same values. Naval exercises send a message to the world of what democracies that work together can do across a range of complex threats. The Pindo government focus continues to be to place focused and targeted pressure on an illegitimate regime to ensure there’s a transition to a legitimate, democratic government. Part of that focus is to ensure that the right humanitarian assistance is allowed to get to the people who need it.

Maduro has been in power since 2013, but in January, opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself as interim president, attempting to remove Maduro. Pindostan and at least 50 of its vassals recognize Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela. Russia, China, and Cuba have denounced Pindostan’s interventionist activities there. Russia has pledged to send warships to support Maduro.

Venezuela is suffering from economic collapse, with 25% of its 30 million population in desperate need of aid, according to the UN. Millions have fled into Colombia, Brazil, Argentina, and other nearby countries in the last several years. Earlier this month, the Trump administration froze all Venezuelan government assets in Pindostan, which clearly escalated economic and diplomatic pressure on Maduro. When Faller was asked about how Maduro will respond to the war drills, he said:

I don’t know how Maduro looks at anything.

Trump’s war hawks, if that is Pompeo or Bolton, have actively been laying the groundwork in the last several years for conflict in Venezuela. And it seems the possibility of conflict with Venezuela could be increasing, if not maybe somewhere else around the world, that is because the White House is preparing for a mild recession in 2020. And what better way to stimulate a faltering economy than a conflict, which is the best fiscal stimulus possible.
