US preparing to make another attempt to deliver aid to Venezuela

Another US air force aircraft was seen bringing in more humanitarian aid into Camilo Daza international airport in Cucuta on Thursday.

The US aircraft can be seen on the tarmac, and later large trucks can be seen carrying the aid on their carriages, escorted by Colombian police.

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido thanked the United States on Twitter for the fresh shipment of aid, and vowed to continue finding ways to bring it inside Venezuela.

R ~ Shipment one was a major fail... Venezuela knows full well that the US needs a toehold for any further egress into that nation.

The fleet is stretched thin. IMO this is reminiscent of Trump's dealings with N.Korea - a lot of bluster and military movement but in the end he gains a diplomatic 'coup' - which was he precipitated, not N.Korea. Frankly, absent the 'evidence' thus far I don't think N.Korea has a nuclear capability. But it made great press, a distraction from far more domestic problems, most especially the economy. With Venezuela he's got his two war dogs doing a redux - a lot of bluster. Whether he(((?))) will keep them in check is what I am looking for. That or war, which the US is incapable of executing without much death and carnage. But then that is what the pattern has been for many years.
