Editor's note: 1/4/2015 Russian plans for bases in Argentina and the reopening the Lourdes Intelligence Center in Cuba continue as 2015 opens. If there is another attempt on the Falklands by Argentina expect the Russians in Cuba to provide intelligence on any activities by the American Navy in support of a British defense by their Cuban assets. Also expect Argentina based Russian forces to provide South Atlantic intelligence and possibly even some form of area denial in places. With our forces engaged by Islamic generated concerns and an anti British President in the White House the time may be viewed as ripe. Argentine Forces do not appear ready but with major Russian assistance things could change. The only retarding factor on a major Russian funded effort is the down turn in oil revenues for Russia as the year opens. This first work week of the year seems an appropriate time to revisit the issue of Russia's alliance with Argentina and rapprochement with Cuba.
The Bear is back in our hemisphere and already causing trouble for the Falklands and the U.S. via near by Cuba. Cuba never learned their lesson after being abandoned by Russia and now finds itself the servant of Russia and China and having to cooperate with the lunatic state of North Korea. If adult supervision ever returns to Washington this whole collection is going to come to a bad end.
