You don't ever want to expand a military alliance to countries whose politics you can't predict for the future.
I don't see how that's relevant in the discussion of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. The US has failed miserably in clumsy attempts to undermine the support of the Sandinista's in Nicaragua, and after 40 years of suppression they're still as popular as ever there!
The US has failed for the last 20 years to overthrow the Hugo Chavez/Nicolaus Maduro govt's in Venezuela, but what was really funny was the Americunt's (mp.net and elsewhere) mocking Venezuela for having grocery stores with empty shelves where food and toilet paper would be missing.....only for the same shit to happen to America a few years later. I live in the so-called 'Breadbasket' of the midwestern United States, and all of the grocery stores (over the past 2 years) have had many empty shelves where food and toilet paper would be non-existent. I bet the room-temperature IQ having jackasses and mental-midgets at mp.net could of never have seen this coming lol! Fate pulled the Uno-reverse card here lol!
And lastly Cuba, where the US has failed for over 70 years, and over 700 regime change plots/attempts. The ship has sailed for regime change in Cuba (barring a comprador like Gorbachev/Yeltsin coming in to power).
Just saying, you should still be careful
Step 1, man! Give the specialists 2 or 3 years and these countries will be as safe as Russia. No more color revolutions. Maybe one or two Navalny´s sitting in jail, but not more.
