Posted on 05/23/2020 5:20:41 AM PDT by kevcol
Five Iranian oil tankers are currently making their way to Venezuela, where they intend to bust an economic blockade established by the Trump administration on President Nicolas Maduro
Iranian military leaders said their oil tankers would reach the Caribbean in the coming days. In response, the U.S. Navy has already deployed several ships to the area.
Both Iran and Venezuela have threatened violence if the United States intercedes in the shipment. And while the Trump administration would not telegraph any actions it may be planning, U.S. officials made clear the United States does not intend to let Iran expand its malign influence into Latin America.

I still can't make out what those things are on deck
Who is buying this heavy sulfur crude?
While our economy falls apart and our border is still open to h1b candidates to take American young peoples jobs, Pompeos priority is far away Venezuala. Lets start a war there!
Youd think we were still living under Bush and Cheney with their neocon mania for starting regime-change wars in distant countries. Instrad of an America First policy of protecting Americas borders and bringing US manufacturing back to America
CITGO is majority-owned by PDVSA, a state-owned company of the Venezuelan government.
Not sure what theyre actually called, but the lines when they tie off to the pier go through those so they dont get tangled or cut on sharp edges. The spoils of line are right behind them.
They must be getting close. they were only 48 hours away a day or two ago.
spoils....haha...spoken like a true zoomie... 🤣
I wish Pompeo has been a tenth concerned about China and the virus which has posed a mortal threat to our economy as he is about impoverished weak no-threat Venezuala.
Peter Navarro warned about the danger of the Chinese virus. Pompeo and our state department were too busy playing neocon regime change games in the Middle East and Venezuala.
neocons want another war I see
I’ll bet they get “blowed up real good” when they’re empty and full of fumes.
Last time I checked, Trump is doing more than any president ever to protect our borders and bring manufacturing back to America.
OK....... I see that now. They are not cargo
Venezuela has the world’s largest proven reserves of oil at 300 billion barrels. I plead ignorance but why are they IMPORTING crude oil from Iran? (I missed any earlier explanations).
Venezuela imports because of deferred maintenance issues and sharks with lasers sabotaging vital components.
The signs say Death To America?
President Trump certainly has his hands full. ....
..crazy rat governors
..insane rat party spending
.......now this. ..
Prayers Up President.
We have faith and trust you.
