Venezuelans Sub Shopping

Just a quick link to a Strategy Page article on Venezuela's Maximum Leader Hugo Chavez looking at new Russian submarines. As far as Strategy Page articles go, it isn't too bad.

As I've mentioned before, I'm not that worried about Chavez, since tinpot Latin American dictators tend to get "taken care of" by their own army officers. Maybe he's looking at the submarines as a way to eventually escape to Cuba.

Going deep...

Rooskies see the export deal the Germans have and see their need for cash and have been trying to foist Kilos on several countries. The short battery capacity has sometimes been a deal killer, the German training package deal has, and so has the quality control.

OTOH there's not much other way for Venezuela to bug the snot out of the American Navy...
