  • Cato said “Does it have to be US ground troops firing shots? What if they are present but don’t actually fight (advisors, security guards, logistics)? And what about air strikes, missiles, drones, or cyber attacks?on 2019-02-27
  • two2thehead said “What Cato asked. Does an Iraqi or Syrian or Libyan situation count? IE there are special operations forces working alongside native armed forces?on 2019-02-27
  • PseudonymousUser said “To Cato: The prediction covers the hypothetical scenario where US military personnel are deployed to Venezuela and carry out orders to cause kinetic damage within Venezuelan borders. on 2019-03-08
  • PseudonymousUser said “To two2thehead: If working alongside means training or intelligence sharing, that doesn’t count on its own. The US forces must personally cause kinetic damage to occur, not merely enable it by training or intelligence sharing. on 2019-03-08
  • Cato said “OK, so air strikes count, but missile strikes (launched from outside Venezuela), cyber attacks, and naval blockades do not. Right?on 2019-03-08
  • PseudonymousUser said “Well, air strikes count provided they are carried out by manned aircraft over Venezuelan territory, or are drones operated by US military personnel who are geographically located in Venezuela.on 2019-03-08
  • PseudonymousUser said “For a cyberattack to count I’d say it would (1) have to be launched by US military personnel geographically located in Venezuela and (2) must be carried out with the deliberate intent of causing kinetic damageon 2019-03-08
  • PseudonymousUser said “By kinetic damage, I mean permanent damage to persons or things, e.g., a flood, an explosion, a power outage resulting in the loss of lives. on 2019-03-08
  • PseudonymousUser said “And lastly, missiles launched from outside Venezuela and naval blockades do not count at all.on 2019-03-08
