Russia Is A Threatening AdversaryBy Donald Moskowitz
May 24, 2019
When I served onboard a radar picket ship in the Pacific during the 1950s we tracked and reported Russian bear bombers making practice runs approaching the west coast of the U.S. In the early 1960s Russia installed missile batteries in Cuba which threatened the U.S. We implemented a naval blockade and Russia was forced to remove the missiles.
Once again, Russia is becoming militarily involved in the Western Hemisphere. They have bilateral agreements with dictator Maduro of Venezuela which they are expanding. On March 23, 2019 two Russian air force planes landed in Venezuela carrying 100 special forces personnel to help bolster the Maduro regime.
We have to help the democratic forces in Venezuela oust Maduro so we can get the Russians out of Venezuela. The Russian are a threat to the countries in the region and could threaten the U.S. and our interests in the Western Hemisphere.
President Trump told the Russians to get out of Venezuela. I commend him for realizing the adversarial threat Russia poses to the United States.
