Hey people, it┤s late, can┤t sleep.

Just passed by to say that I┤ve been writing a few articles and updating how things are going here in Peru, in Ecuador (things are really bad there) and in Venezuela (my folks are holed up in their home watching TV and surfing the web, peacefully. My younger bro leaves home every 3 days to buy some food. Some fellows take their equipment (generators, alternators, and such) to home so my dad can fix them and keep working...as these guys are farmers, they can move more or less freely but the problem now is the almost total lack of gasoline.
Things are going to explode soon. Oh and we have been having a real blast with the reward on the Maduro┤s head and his cronies┤. That was the best news since a long time. They used the excuse of the quarantine to stomp on the few liberties we already had. People is not taking the quarantine seriously here in Lima...hope things don┤t go as far as in Quito where people is falling on the streets. Jeez.
Stay safe people.

I read a couple of days ago that Rosneft, (sp?) has bailed out, selling its' interest in the oil business to the Russian government.

Hello there again.

Well, after the excellent news (Maduro and cronies being included in the black list) and a taskforce seems to be on their way to realize an operation (or to pickup a delivery from someone willing to make the dirty work) I just can say I will be coming back, hopefully soon. Lima is not exactly the best place to be with the coming economical climate. I have a patch of land there, and getting rid of some expenses will allow me to develop a few projects. Dude, this has been hard. Peru is the largest business partner of Latin America, and I believe China is going to be in really big trouble these next coming years. And with all due reasons.
We Americans from the Continent have to unite now more than ever. This disease, whatever its origin is, is the best proof that wars don┤t necessarily have to be fought with missiles and troops. If you ask me, this is a bioweapon. I plan to write a post in my patreon site (to avoid cluttering this thread) about why I believe it has been like that.
By the way for some details about how my folks and family are getting along with the pandemics please visit www.theorganicprepper.com by Saturday. We need also people buying some stuff through the website, so if you buy something from Daisy it will be helpful for all of us. This said, I want to say, I┤m sorry very much what is happening in NYC. Footage is astonishing. In Guayaquil, Ecuador, some corpses have been found in the streets. Fortunately here things are not at that levels (weather here has been hot) and I hope never be.
Lockdown measures have been increasingly restrictive, men can now leave home 3 days a week and females the other 3 days. Sundays no one can leave home. In Venezuela, everyone after 2 PM is going to have problems. Some anonymous audios have been circulating and saying that some "good" cops belonging to the very same repressive forces suggest their friends and familiy to NOT leave home but for buying food, water and supplies because the shots can start every minute.
I┤d rather prefer to be there waiting with an AR-15 and armed to the teeth than locked up in this foreign land.
My landlord knows I┤m screwed beyond belief and they have been giving me lunch this week. I can┤t thank them enough. They┤re really good people and must know I┤m on the verge of a breakdown.
Yesterday I woke up feeling a freaking tremor at 9 am. Jeez, my life feels like Jumanji these days.

Got a chuckle out of this:

https://www.jpost.com/International/...sinking-623422

Venezuelan naval vessel rams a German "arctic cruise ship" having a re-inforced hull to handle ice. Sinks itself.

Quote:
RCGS Resolute is a purpose built polar expedition vessel of the highest ice class, rated 1A Super, designed to operate in difficult ice conditions.
Quote:
According to the statement, “While the Master was in contact with the head office, gun shots were fired and, shortly thereafter, the navy vessel approached the starboard side at speed with an angle of 135░ and purposely collided with the RCGS RESOLUTE. The navy vessel continued to ram the starboard bow in an apparent attempt to turn the ship’s head towards Venezuelan territorial waters.”

The cruise company said the RCGS RESOLUTE sustained minor damages, not affecting vessel’s seaworthiness, it occurs that the navy vessel suffered severe damages while making contact with the ice-strengthened bulbous bow of the ice-class expedition cruise vessel RCGS RESOLUTE and started to take water.”

LOL! Doesn't say much about the build quality of that "warship," and even less about the quality of Venezuelan Navy DC's!

Socialism, is failure.

If I was that cruiseship Capt., I'd have pulled into harbor with a broom hoisted...

Those were made by Spain. Piece of junk. 325MM$ in the bottom of the sea.

Unofficial story is they tried to assault the cruiser, forcing them to Isla Margarita like 400 kms West of their position. Go figure.

Knowing them, I┤m more than sure they tried to board to hijack the ship, accusing them of whatever they can come out with, and the captain of the cruiser responded with lethal force.
I can┤t explain myself why the captain of the battle ship never explain in public what happened. That stink to guilt, in my book.

I┤ve seen some pictures in the SSNN circulating, and some footage, helicopters and so on in the Ure˝a (Venezuela) and Colombia borders. Anyone knows something about it?. The diaspore is very eager of any news.

Ecuador isn't much better at the moment. Hospital / Morgue staff and even the government itself is just outright refusing to pick up the bodies of the dead from people's homes. They're literally just being put out to the curb.

This article has some good information on the sinking. It has video, audio between the ships, and satellite imagery of the oil slick that is in international waters.

https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...before-sinking

I'm not 100% clear on the matter, but this sort of thing ends up in admiralty court. Positions, speed and maneuvers will be sorted out. But the question that will probably sink Venezuelan claims is why they fired on a foreign flagged civilian ship in international waters?

I'm with Greg. They were trying to hijack the cruise ship. I just don't know why. Was the Navy ship following orders? Or were they free agents? Are they taking a page from the Somalis?

We know these Bozos are desperate.... maybe they thought the cruise ship was spying kinda like the old Soviet Spy ship trawlers?
Whoever is training the Venezuelan navy is doing a lousy job. So now that navy is down one gunboat with which to fight off the imperialistic invasion, maybe Cuba will give them a few old soviet made coastal craft in return for oil.... Oh Man, I bet the Mad Bus Driver is having a fit

Hello buddies.
Regarding the ship, my take is, they were ordered to get hostages

People to bargain with, should the artificial works starts. Human shields.

Those guys are criminals. Don┤t have any doubt. They┤ve killed officers like the Corbet Captain Rafael Acosta torturing him. They blew Oscar Perez and his team with an RPG at short distance.

They have provided our Army arsenal to the illegal militias FARC and ELN, so these can fight with the foreign troops once the extraction operation begin.

They┤re going to kill as many civillians as they can, as a retailation. Innocent civilians.

Entire families. Cabello admitted to this in national TV broadcasting.
It┤s not the bozos you see on TVs and videos who┤re going to be on the front line. It┤s seasoned colombian Farc veterans with a lot of combat experience what they┤re going to find. Better be notifying this to your troops. I know you can do it.

They deserve no mercy.

I though this was going to be like that. Maybe bugging out was not such a bad idea. The scenario I was prepping for was this, exactly this one. Of course the pandemics came as an additional difficulty. Murphy is on the loose and hates me.

I just hope that once the Internet has been restored after the fireworks my family there can send an email or something and let me know they┤re fine.

Folks are too old to go anywhere.

In my youtube channel (just type fact based prepping on the engine search and screw the opsec) you can see some footage I received in exclusive of a guy here in Lima being taken down by the SARS cov2 in the middle of the street. Ecuador started like that. And just a couple of hours ago saw one guy falling down in Caracas. These next 15 days are going to be though. Jeez.

I just hope none of your boys catch the bug. They┤re already risking a lot trying to get their hands over those pigs.

Good evening people.

Only difference between Venezuela and Somalia is in Venezuela there's a main Warlord Madera and in Somalia it's the Goon of the Month Club along the coast.

That until Maduro is taken out by one of the generals or one of the real warlords there. The hunt is out for the money US put forth and also for the gold and off shore accounts Maduro and his cronies have. All their wives and family members are game for kidnapping, torture and murder. Venezuela is not a safe place for Maduro, but an idiot like him does not understands this or simply he does not have too many options left.

Sooner or later we will see a video with somebody cutting his ears or limbs or shooting him and his. Better put music so you don't hear the screams.

Russia has announced they retired their civilian "contractors" and military personnel.

Lunch is ready.

An acquaintance I know (a commie fan) contacted me by phone and histerically told me he was guaranteed a FAL and four mags.

Told him to be careful no not shoot his own foot. LOL. MF hasn┤t shot even a .22 in his life. (I grew up in a mountain with a Remington auto and were the best years of my life)

Couple of things come to mind.... US based cubans always said that Castro had a few body doubles that he would stake out at public events when he suspected an assassination. That Fat F...k Clemenza oops I mean Maduro should be fattening up a few look alike with extra rations of arepas and patacones cause someone close to him is looking to collect.
My Lebanese Christian friends here tell me that all Christian families in the old country have weapons stored/hidden in their home in the event civil war returns. It's too bad more South Americans didn't do the same (the ones I know did).

Going a little bit off topic, I would like to respond to your attentions and provide a little entertainment with light reading.

I┤ve written a couple of pages of a fictional story in my patreon page fellows.
Just go to the published posts in https://www.patreon.com/jmdemunck

I hope you enjoy it. Writing helps me to keep calm and not desperate.

Be safe!

Rosneft has sold the Venezuelan holdings they had to the Russian government so really now not expecting the US to do much more than bluster.

Many people have guns and the means down there, but it is true that too many people in latinamerica drink the socialist koolaid.

Just did another interview with Daniel, a prepper in Venezuela with whom Ive been talking lately. Lots of similar experiences, lots of lessons on how things go when they get even worse than what I saw in Argentina.
Its a shame that he doesnt speak english, would love to do an inteview with him for my english channel.
But in case anyone understands spanish, here it is. And here is his channel as well. If you DONT understand spanish, clikc on the cc and cog in the window, the translated subtitles works pretty well in youtube.
