Colombia Resolute sinks Venezuelan Navy Boat

Recommended Posts

Here's one for the record books.  A Venezuelan patrol boat fired on the Resolute and then tried to ram it in international waters.  Because the Resolute had a reinforced hull, the Venezulean patrol vessel sank instead.  The Resolute stood by to help in the resuce and then continued on its way.  Maduro, the president of Venezuela, accused the cruise ship of piracy and terrorism.

Amazing.  Venezuela may be running out of everything, but apparently they still have those funny cigarettes the leader likes to smoke...

Now Maduro is claiming there were mercenaries on board.
