Hmmmm, who do you suppose put all these guns and bullets in this warehouse, and why?Story from Aporrea:
Translation mine.I wonder if all this was as innocent as it seems. An awful lot of old weaponry has done a sudden disappearing act in Venezuela, and for some strange reason, it always ends up having the pawprints of anti-Chavecito escualidos all over it. Remember, there are a lot of old army types who are looking to foment a coup against you-know-who, and they are precisely the sort to have access to these “old”, “disused” weapons.Plus, Baruta is opposition territory, so don’t anyone give me guff about how the Chavistas are going to be using this for their intimidating militias.Funny, too, how this find just happens to turn up shortly before the local elections, slated for the 23rd. But then again, given the oppos and their distaste for democracy that doesn’t go their way, can we honestly say we’re surprised?
The Scientific Criminal and Penal Investigations Body (CICPC) discovered a large stockpile of undeclared weapons on Friday night in Baruta, Miranda. The CICPC director, Commissioner Marcos Chávez, informed that these weapons consisted of automatic pistols, revolvers, long guns, rifles and numerous projectiles, among other things, and were found during an intelligence raid on a warehouse in Baruta.According to Commissioner Chávez, the cache came from an arsenal, presumably belonging to an old armory which is now in disuse. All the same, the raided site only had permission to store food, not weapons.
