"President Donald Trump has been talking about ordering a military operation targeting Venezuela since 2017.

At first, that was widely dismissed as a rash threat, but the idea of a U.S. effort to force "regime change" in the oil-rich South American country may be gaining momentum in Washington.

"It's a regime that, frankly, could be toppled very quickly by the military if the military decides to do that," Trump said in September…."

Do we have any evidence that anything other than humanitarian aid has been in the aid trucks that the Venezuelan army has been stopping at the border?

None at all, Oberlindes.

As far as even the Venezuelans are reporting, it's all food and medicine.

Sounds to me like Venezuelan propaganda.

Apparently, there are quite a few assets in Colombia that could assist, should the need arise.

Glad to hear it. I might take that idea, which I read in some corner of the internet, and turn it into a game scenario, though. I do own a bunch of toy trucks of suitable scale.

Isn't it the function of militaries to plan for any contingency?

Their have been plans to invade every Latin American country since Cuba went communist. Basic strategic planning.

Excercises at the Command and General Staff colleges should include such excercises.
