Despite Venezuela's severe economic troubles, it would appear that the country's military seems to be doing rather fine.

...thing is, you're probably right, but the mods haven't moved it. I might be missing something as well. If I had to guess, it's because it's a military matter, one that could threaten the Venezuelan government.

Venezuela is very anti-US. It is a big deal if the military has greater power.

This could be important news. The Netherlands has a couple of islands in the sea close to the border of venezuela. A couple of years ago the former president of Venezuela said that Venezuela wanted those islands. In reaction to this the dutch increased their military assets on those islands with f16's and marines. The economie of those islands are rather strong. Venezuela is broke. I don't know how the relationship between the dutch and Venezuela are at the moment but The netherlands is a Nato country and Venezuela has very good ties with Russia. (weapon supplier) So here we are.
