US Admits Violating Venezuela Airspace

By teleSUR

30 July 19


Faller had said the U.S. military "will continue to fly and operate wherever international standards apply and that includes around Venezuela, South America and the world."

he United States confirmed Sunday that it violated the Venezuelan airspace earlier that week with what the country's military's calls "surveillance flights," according to comments made by the head of the Southern Command, admiral of the Navy Craig Faller.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said his government rejects such violation of its sovereignty and will be filing a complaint against such actions at the United Nations.

“There is no doubt about its evil intentions. We will file a complaint at the UN, ”said Arreaza in a tweet Sunday.

Faller had said the U.S. military "will continue to fly and operate wherever international standards apply and that includes around Venezuela, South America and the world."

The latest tension comes after the FANB Comprehensive Aerospace Defense Command System (Codai) intercepted on July 19 an intelligence aircraft, belonging to the U.S. and flying over Venezuela's territory, representing a violation of international treaties.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, the Strategic Operational Command of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (Ceofanb) revealed a new violation of Venezuelan airspace by spy planes of U.S. origin.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

This is unusual in that the US military for once admitted the trespass.

Of course they immediately made clear that they intended to continue the practice.

Which is as near an act of War as you can get with actually declaring it.
