In this episode, you will hear everything you need to know about the turmoil in Venezuela, what it means for America, what we should do and what we shouldn’t do. We are joined by Joseph Humire, executive director of the Secure Free Society and one of the foremost experts on terrorism in Latin America, to brief us on what you are not seeing behind the scenes with that Maduro regime and in the broader Latin American geopolitical scene.
The bottom line is that our failure to focus properly on Latin America has allowed Russia, China, and Iran to work with the Bolivarian revolution of far-leftists in Venezuela, Cuba, and several other countries to destabilize our neighborhood. We can’t turn that around on a dime and coming in with a military invasion will not help. It will make things worse.
We need to fight asymmetrical warfare with asymmetrical warfare, according to Humire. He gives us a blueprint for doing so in a way that doesn’t just treat the symptoms of Maduro, but the broader illness of what has taken root in Latin America and how to defend our prerogatives against Russia and China.
Meanwhile, both Congress and the defense establishment continue to get our priorities wrong in the world, whether it’s Khashoggi, Afghanistan, or Latin America.
