Bolivarian Constitution

Within a very particular geostrategic vision, the Venezuelan Government has begun proceedings seeking to allow you to become a power of a regional or sub-continental, with the clear aim of being able to influence from the points of view political, economic and military in Latin America. For this last was deemed necessary to create and consolidate a new military thinking for its armed forces, restructuring in all instances based on the new Bolivarian Constitution so the same and from its preparation, training, equipment and indoctrination, can be determinant in the support of his geopolitical pretensions. However, this has been the first time in its history, that the Venezuelan armed forces have been forced to break with ideological concepts that prevailed in that country, traditionally Liberal, Social Christian and a Social Democrat, to – and as it has happened in recent years-, support the concept of a socialist State, logically with radically different projects in all the aspects including the military. The Integral defence of the nation, as is the denomination of the new military doctrine developed by Venezuela that began since 2005 to be implemented rapidly in that country. Some aspects still keep the reserved character, however it is possible to draw a general idea of the new paradigm that comes to replace that of the postwar period, based on the unipolar power of the United States. In essence this new paradigm is based on the alleged American political and military threat (and their allies on the continent) and as such reflects the structural features of a doctrine of war of defence, designed to produce deterrent effects to these possible aggressors who from the technological and quantitative points of view are very superior to the Venezuelans. This new doctrine has as legal support article 326 of the Constitution of the Republic Bolivariana of Venezuela, whose axiomatic assumption is that national security is based on the shared responsibility between State and society and this justifies its development to through three strategies. .
