From Cuba Polidata:
General Carlos Julio Peñaloza, the former chief of the Unified Command of Venezuela's Armed Forces, tweeted Sunday (July 3rd) about the arrival of Cuban troops in Port Cabello in Venezuela for the bicentennial independence celebration on Monday (July 4).
In a subsequent tweet dated July 5, the general said there are 2000 Cuban troops in the country with the excuse of participating in Monday's military parade.
Will this near battalion strength formation make a permanent presence to shore up Chavez's security if a threat materializes to his regime?
