#VENEZUELA--Latin Spring of 2017---OAS-EXIT: ANALYSIS--

CBD EXCLUSIVE--FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE--ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATES WITHDRAWAL

(FRONT LINES)-- Clearly the momentum has now shifted from the streets of Caracas to the international scene as the OAS, in an emergency meeting today, has ratcheted up the pressure on the Maduro regime to put an end to the repression throughout Venezuela and come to terms with the opposition forces.

On the streets of Caracas, and in other major cities across the country, the decision by the dictator to bail out of the organization should come as no surprise as Maduro chooses to isolate himself even further from the international community in a desperate attempt to hold on to power.


ABC NEWS--
http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/latest-venezuela-renouncing-membership-oas-47043432
Venezuela's government says it will begin withdrawing from the Organization of American States, in reaction to growing international pressure on the socialist-run South American nation.
Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez says President Nicolas Maduro will send a letter Thursday to the Washington-based OAS renouncing its membership in the hemispheric body.
The decision had been expected. It came a short while after envoys to the OAS approved a resolution convening a special meeting of regional foreign ministers to discuss Venezuela's crisis.
Rodriguez says Maduro's administration has been forced to counter what it sees as an attempt by the OAS and conservative regional governments to topple Maduro.
 
 
Clearly it is no "attempt" at all to bring his regime to an end, but an outright effort, probably from within, in spite of accusations of foreign intervention. If the OAS withdrawal is approved, Maduro will scratch Venezuela's signatory status that has been in effect since the founding of the group nearly sixty years ago. Not even some of the more repressive regimes such as that of Cuba has considered an exit from the OAS and it will now be up to those who side with Maduro to follow suit, possibly bringing on the dissolution of the charter altogether.

CBD FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE--ATTN CMD HQ COC


(ADAK)--Following After Action Report compiled from various sources--

1800 HRS, LOCAL PDT ANCHORAGE TIME:

UNIDENTIFIED AIRCRAFT ENCROACH THE ALASKAN AIR DEFENSE IDENTIFICATION ZONE, ESSENTIALLY A MUTUALLY ACCEPTED "NO-FLY" ZONE SURROUNDING THE STATE AND THE ADJACENT CHAIN OF ISLAND TO THE WEST.

http://www.ktuu.com/content/news/JBER-personnel-intercept-Russian-bombers-419750084.html

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska (KTUU) - U.S. military personnel based at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson and Eielson Air Force Base intercepted two Russian nuclear-capable bombers in international airspace Monday evening.
According Lt. Gen. Ken Wilsbach, Alaskan NORAD Region Commander, aircraft were detected flying unannounced shortly before 6 p.m. Monday night.
"They were not on a flight plan," he said, "so we had to investigate that."
"We basically have a line drawn, about 200 miles outside of our land mass," Lt. Gen. Wilsbach said. "We use that just so that when aircraft cross that line, if we don't already have an identification through a flight plan, then we will launch aircraft to determine what that aircraft is and who it is."
The Russian aircraft were inside that line.
Thus, an alert force from JBER consisting of a single E-3 AWACS aircraft, an airborne command and control platform which includes an on-board radar system, was launched in response.
Two F-22s were launched following that in order to visually identify the Russian aircraft. At the same time, a KC-135 tanker aircraft left the Eielson Air Force Base.

ARTICLE CONTINUES TO STATE THAT THE AIRCRAFT WERE FLYING A COURSE PARALLEL TO THE ALEUTIANS AND NO (RUSSIAN) REFUELERS WERE DETECTED IN THE REGION.




THE RUSSIAN AIRCRAFT IN THE ADIZ HAS A 9000 PLUS RANGE AND THE NEAREST BASE ON RUSSIAN SOIL CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING THE AIRCRAFT IS VLADIVOSTOK ON THE WESTERN PACIFIC COAST.
