In any case, the USArmy/MC need to recover from the ill-fated GWOT & re-train for jungle/tropical warfare before even thinking about it.

    It was a hybrid war with many proxies. But the US now has troops in Colombia & may send some to Brazil; they will need to be reinforced in a real ground war.

    But here you are contradicting yourself! You implied Libya wasn't a war, and that a war in a first term is detrimental to a 2nd term, however you seemed to forget that the Mitt Romney and the Republicans during the 2012 election cycle used the Benghazi incident like a October Surprise, and in turn Obama narrowly won the swing-states in the Presidential election by slight margin (approx. 800k votes total). Benghazi was basically the main talking point for the Republicans during the 2012 election.

    it was a war, just like the air war over Yugoslavia. There r different types & stages of wars, & there's no single definition of a word "war".

    Venezuela agreed to accept Russian warships

    It will be a long time before Venezuelan warships visit RF ports!
    Now the VMF ships visits r legal de-jure- let any1 sue them for it!

    Probably just as well they signed it because they might need russian navy ship escorts for all ships going to Venezuela in the future if that piracy of food ships is anything to go by...
