It’s 3am and the phone is ringing…but no answer. From Don Surber:

And we have this report from RIA, the Russian news service: “Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has proposed to Russia using a Venezuelan island for temporary hosting of Russian long-range aviation, a top-ranking Russian Air Force official said Saturday.”

And from CNN: “Russia expressed interest in using Cuban airfields during patrol missions of its strategic bombers, Russia’s Interfax news agency reported.”

And from Bloomberg: “Russia could land strategic bombers at Cuban and Venezuelan airfields while conducting patrols, the head of the Russian strategic air force was quoted as saying by the Interfax news service.”

Russia can see they have a amateur in the White House, a man who will let them get away with anything and the only consequence from an Obama administration is a stern lecture. They can’t let this opportunity slip by…..
