Russian Commitment to Venezuela
According to the Russian news agency Tass, Russia is establishing a strategic air base on the Venezuelan island, La Orchila. Russian sources explain this development as part of the boomerang effect of Trump’s abandonment of the intermediate range missile treaty with Russia.
One supposes that both the Russian and Venezuelan governments understand that this union of the “Russian threat” with the “Venezuelan threat” gives Washington more reason to overthrow the Venezuelan government, a goal to which Washington is already committed. The establishment of the Russian airbase implies a Russian commitment to support Venezuela against Washington.

Many thanks to those of you who have responded to my quarterly call for your support. More donations have arrived, but the response remains light for the December quarter.
One possible explanation is that more donors have moved into the monthly category.
Another is that the attacks on me are impacting donations.
Yet another is that truth is getting harder to accept as well as to speak.
As the cost of truth is rising, so should reader response.
