- An SANDF fight with the US was recently stopped before it even had a chance to start
- The services of the South African army were offered up by an enthusiastic Joseph Nkosi, South African ambassador to Venezuela
- Apparently Joseph was quite ready to take on President Trumps forces, with the aid of the South African army
A fight with the US was recently averted after an overly eager Joseph Nkosi, the South African ambassador to Venezuela, offered up the South African army to help the country.
Joseph’s rather enthusiastic offer to share our military resources with Venezuela was met with less enthusiasm by the South African Director General who gave him a stern talking to.
The South African reports, from a Daily Maverick article that, Joseph received a rather stern talking to from the director general himself who stated, “It is not government policy”.
Joseph cited economic blockades as a justifiable reason for military retaliation against the US, saying:
“We have always fought against this blockade. We are going to support them, we are not going to let them die alone. If it is necessary that we bring our soldiers to fight against the Americans we will do it, we cannot allow ourselves to be dominated by the American administration.”
The overeager ambassador didn’t stop there, although he should have – Nkosi went on to threaten US dominance, saying:
“The days of the US dominating the world are numbered”.
The SANDF has been in the news a fair amount and in May this year, Briefly.co.za reported on how Major Mohlala was dismissed after racist comments.
Venezuela is currently experiencing a currency meltdown, compacted by nationwide protests, water shortages and a collapse of its healthcare sector.
