in response to reader comment: American 46th Administration Meddling Where it Ought Not

And now, in an act of projecting Islamic power hungry searching for just the right provocation and bringing a recall of older acts of Cold War antagonisms worthy of Soviet ambitions, is the world witnessing a preliminary act of aggression in the western hemisphere while the American 46th Administration continues to meddle without a clue or concern of consequences, now that the Iranian Islamic Regime is apparently trying to hook up with Venezuela? Speaking of messing up in places where the contemplations of world empire are so much more problematic than 8 years in Iran's backyard with Iraq.
The Cuban Missile Crisis is recalled here; that while it may appear only surface vessels are making the trek, one cannot help but wonder if subsurface escorts are not also involved. With problems at home, diversions might sound palatable here.
That Venezuela is a comparable petrochemical exchange country, and the Iranian Islamic Regime may be looking to hook up for economic reasons, coming into the shadow of the American sphere of petrochemical influences while the American 46th Administration is exposing similar industry weaknesses, what can one help but wonder what kind of deals are happening?
We need to remember that President Kennedy was Navy and knew how to confront. Does America have that now? Speculations rage; but answers one might be thinking are not what Americans are expecting, now are they? Seriously, what should be the posture when the defense of America is not defended by Constitutional governance, but by Marxist autocratic dictate, the same kind that launched the Soviets in 1962.
