US-proclaimed “President” of Venezuela Juan Guaido gave an interview to The Washington Post admitting that his coup attemot in Venezuela had failed. Guaido blaimed the lack of support from the country’s military and said that he welcomes a possibility of foreign intervention to the country.
“Maybe because we still need more soldiers, and maybe we need more officials of the regime to be willing to support it, to back the constitution,” the US-appointed Venezuelan patriot stated. “I think the variables are obvious at this point.”
Asked what Guaido would do if US National Security Adviser John Bolton called him up with an offer of U.S. intervention, he said he would reply:
“Dear friend, ambassador John Bolton, thank you for all the help you have given to the just cause here. Thank you for the option, we will evaluate it, and will probably consider it in parliament to solve this crisis. If it’s necessary, maybe we will approve it.”
He further commented with the following:
“That’s great news to Venezuela because we are evaluating all options. It’s good to know that important allies like the U.S. are also evaluating the option. That gives us the possibility that if we need cooperation, we know we can get it.”
