End of the Monroe Doctrine
Posted by Charles II on March 15, 2009
For almost 200 years, the US has used The Monroe Doctrine to make the Western Hemisphere into its sole preserve. I guess we let the British hang onto a few tropical resorts.
And now that may change.
Venezuela just invited the Russians to build an airbase on one of their islands, La Orchila, about 100 miles northeast of Caracas and about 2 mi x 4 mi.

Conveniently, they have a gas station right next door.
