Maybe this is a bit too Evola, but where are the heroic adventurers? Why is no one forming a mercenary band and going after jihadis or random sub-Saharan African crackpots or storming islands for a pirate base? The answer is the great centralization allows for international law and forces to prevent it. There is no high power that would support it. That is a key, as the "international community' would crack down on Western based adventurers (Neutrality Act FTW). Is the energy gone? Would men even do this if given the chance?
I thought of this when reading about Venezuela. An external force aligned with Venezuela's opposition could possibly cause enough chaos to oust Maduro or topple Maduro in entirety and then act as a preatorian guard for the new regime. Channeling the thoughts and words of the BronzeAgePervert, "warriors would take Venezuelan warbrides for planting seeds". Taking it down several notches, what if you just ran a food smuggling operation? Pack a ton of food on a boat and smuggle it into Venezuela. There must be something in trade that one could sneak back into the US. Let's get some smuggling operations going.Pretty sure there'd be some hot Venezuelan smuggling dames for the taking.
Venezuelans are killing animals in the street to eat. There has to be some opportunity. Maybe you could use a Christian mission trip as cover....
Last week I wrote on the unmentionable nations around the globe, and Venezuela is near tops of the list. It is news editing at an earlier stage of reporting. Weimerica Weekly was about the weird things Americans do with their pets now. This week I will discuss the oil related ticking time bomb in Africa that may take the migrant crisis and immivasion to a whole new level.
