Venezuela Trains For Guerrilla War
Hugo Chavez is preparing for the barbarians at the gates:
Under the blazing midday sun, at an army base outside Caracas, middle-aged Venezuelan military commanders were being told how to teach the civilian population in guerrilla warfare.Invasion by whom? The United States. According to Chavez the United States is planning an invasion designed to throw him out of power. As alluded to in the article, it is much more likely an attempt to gain even more weapons against any domestic opposition he might face. More like brownshirt Chavez SA types than freedom fighters opposing US invaders.
Hundreds of officers in olive combat dress were shown practical displays of Venezuela's new military thinking: The use of civilians to fight a war of resistance in the event of an invasion.
