Venezuela 'drone attack': Soldiers seen running
Venezuelan officials say explosive drones went off as President Nicolás Maduro was giving a live televised speech in Caracas, but he is unharmed.
Footage of the event shows Mr Maduro and his wife Cilia Flores looking up, startled, and dozens of soldiers running, before the transmission is cut off.

You have to watch the video until the end.

Watch the soldier in the second row on the right.
Eat your hearts out US secret service, this is how it's done.

Probally wont make the head lines. ..but if it does, you heard it here first
Went down to the bookies (Bar PMU). To lay my daily bets (7/7 with me)
Todays race at Deauville, flat,1300 meters and 20 partants
I had been studying the form / music, since last night
Number 15 caught my attention and for several reasons
1. The Jocky mounted by P-C Boudot ( actual top jockey in France in his discipline )
2. The name of the horse : Sands of Mali ,number 15 and stall number 8 (this counts a lot in horse racing, best to know your onions ! )
See my reply on the Operation Barkhane thread, where i explain what a Barkhane means
3. The odds : 14 /1
When i arrived the place was buzzing with people /scum. ..so i goes a few doors down to the bakers, to prepare my bets and have a café.
During this time, a fight breaks out. ..Morrocains and Gitanes
Police are called and the bars protection
PMU closes till and i haven't laid my bets
M.fkn.Sob's. ..if my wannabe bet comes in. ...i might make front page, stay tuned

Poor is country this army needs to defend.

This only reflects situation in Venezuela. With all that oil and proximity to US that should be heaven on earth, instead they have worst inflation in recent history. What's going on?

Highly unlikely there would be armed drones flying all over the place had the us secret service been around! From a security/military point of view? Some well placed IEDs would of wiped out the whole lot! Maduro was lucky this time!

In Serbia drones (and all flying toys) are banned after someone flight drone with flag of big Albania on football game.

I mean why would secret service do its job when is much easier to ban drones altogether.
