The die Welt story this is based on is more than 2 weeks old, how come the US media hasn’t picked this up yet?
Thanks to commenter AJay for the tip.
I don’t trust Obama on this, but the new Congress will be able to impose further sanctions against these two countries. I don’t see them declaring war on Venezuela though. Two questions:
1) If Obama wanted to stop this, what should he do?
2) If he doesn’t care, what should Congress do?
My main worry is that Obama’s legalism will make him try to deal with this through the UN, instead of directly. A country gets to judge whether there is a threat against it without having to get UN approval. We probably have some time before Iran has warheads, but I don’t have a good estimate of how much.
