On Thursday the government remained defiant, and Venezuela's information and tour…

President Maduro and his ministers have stated (fully supported by Argentina):




*PEOPLE BEHIND YESTERDAY'S VIOLENCE WILL BE PUNISHED: ORTEGA


*VENEZUELA ISSUED ARREST ORDER FOR LEOPOLDO LOPEZ: VOLUNTAD

*ARGENTINA SAYS IT FIRMLY SUPPORTS VENEZUELA'S GOVERNMENT

Summary




Tehran announced Feb. 8 that it had dispatched a frigate and a supply ship to the North Atlantic Ocean, where they will approach U.S. maritime borders. This is not the first time the Iranians have announced their intent to deploy naval vessels close to the United States. Iran made two such declarations in 2011 but never followed through.
