I saw this at Military.com
A video allegedly produced by the Venezuelan government to scare US Marines was recently posted on Facebook. The caption, according to Google Translate, reads: “ATTENTION: It is not a video of a humorous television program, it is a video of the Venezuelan government to scare the US Marines.” Needless to say, it failed gloriously.
As you watch this and wonder how the hell this could scare US Marines, what you need to remember what is the real purpose of the Venezuelan Military.
If you look at the Wikipedia page List of wars involving Venezuela what you will see is that after the Venezuelan War of Independence, there were two short lived blockades by European, then after 1908 the only fighting was coups and revolutions.
The purpose of the Venezuelan military is not for the defense of Venezuela from foreign invasion, but to suppress political uprisings and intimidate unarmed civilians.
To a Marine who survived Fallujah, this is a comedy sketch.
For a hungry Venezuelan protesting that he stood in line all day for the bakery to run out of bread before he got any, the sight of a guy with an AK-47, bayonet mounted, running at him screaming is enough to make him turn tail.
The people who made this video thought it would work on US Marines because they are used to it working on crowds of Venezuelans just trying to pick through a dumpster looking for something to eat.
Whenever you see an overly extravagant, ridiculous, military display from some despotic nation, remember this: all of that is intended to scare the citizens of the despotic nation far more than any foreign power.
