Maduro Places Military On High Alert As Lavrov Declares That 'Venezuela Won’t Become 2nd Syria'

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The Venezuelan Armed Forces have been placed on alert to pre-empt potential “unconventional” warfare actions by the US, which seeks to overthrow the government with attacks on public services, the country’s president Nicolas Maduro stressed.

“Venezuela is demonstrating to the world that it is a testing ground for new cybernetic, electromagnetic war weapons and a new war strategy, which is not the direct invasion or bombing by missiles, but the bombing of vital public services,” the president said.

Maduro added that the situation in the country remains “serious” amid continued blackouts.

He said that the US-backed opposition is participating  in “criminal plans” to take advantage of such a scenario of chaos to assassinate him and other loyal supporters. Maduro also said there are plans to “attack military units.”

The president revealed that he had placed the intelligence and counterintelligence bodies on highest alert. He also called on the mobilized 51,000 popular defense units, comprising some 2.1 million volunteers, to help the military deal with potential threats.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper, Russian Foreign Minitser Sergey Lavrov said that the situation over Venezuela will not escalate into a new Caribbean Crisis or turn the country into “a second Syria.”

“We don’t accept the methods, with which the US is trying to improve the life of the Venezuelan people,” Lavrov said.

The foreign minister added that even those countries on the continent that oppose Maduro and want a snap election in Venezuela got “really stressed out” over US threats to use force against Venezuela.

“I guarantee you that if there’ll be an attempt of a military intervention, the vast majority of Latin American states will outright reject it,” he said.

“I don’t think that the Caribbean Crisis will be recreated,” Lavrov stressed adding that “there can also be no talk about ‘a second Syria’ in Venezuela.”

Both China and Russia also provide Venezuela with humanitarian aid. According to the country’s health minister Carlos Alvarado, Venezuela will be receiving an average of 100 containers with medicines from both China and Russia monthly until the end of 2019.

The US describes this attitude as a ‘hostile approach’.

“You know the history of how Russia moves around. You know the history of Russia’s efforts here in the Western Hemisphere. Sadly, the previous administration allowed the Russians to have influence in Cuba and other places throughout the Western Hemisphere. We are very focused on pushing back against that”, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated during an interview with journalist Hugh Hewitt.

Pompeo said that Russian efforts are directed not only at Venezuela, but also at other South American states as well, such as Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil, and Colombia. He noted that he would be discussing this “threat” with heads of these countries during his upcoming trip to the region.

The state department added that the US had previously attempted to convince Moscow to “leave” Venezuela, calling the presence of Russian military specialists in the country a “threat”, but without success.

“It’s, I’ve tried to convince them it’s not in their best interest. I think I failed at that. And so now we will turn to the other tools of American power to ensure that the Venezuelan people get a chance to have the democracy they deserve”, he said.

In other words, the US will continue its hostile policy against Venezuela and is set to battle any countries opposing it.

    americans and their 2 second thinking span leaders, need to be teach a lesson, that they will not be able survive it and the free world, must do all within their power to dissolve this abomination called united states. Given the fact, the alleged patriots in Us, are sheep and take it all on their knees, is to expected nothing from them.

    • Derapage

      Sooner or later all the Empires decline and fall. It’s just a matter of time

      • HardHawk

        if you think US was ever an empire then you confuse a predator that used is military power to genocide many nations and destroy them with an empire they never become or stand a chance of becoming.

        colonies never become an empire as they are populated by slaves, that have no idea or ever had what been a free person mean. .

        • Harry Smith

          Does Roman Empire never “used its military power to genocide many nations and destroy them”. Or British Empire?

          • HardHawk

            and that is make it right of what the colonist with their minions are doing? Or you are with the idea that, globalization it is a new fruit and not the same roots exist since then in their various attempts and disguises, are different people root wise? same shit different name.

          • Harry Smith

            @disqus_HhIfXGh6Ry:disqus you say:

            if you think US was ever an empire then you confuse a predator that used its military power to genocide many nations and destroy them with an empire they never become or stand a chance of becoming.

            Logically, you are saying that USA is not Empire because it genocide and destroyed many nations. My question was if Roman Empire or British Empire ever genocide or destroyed other nations. If they did not, then your logical construction is true. If they did destroyed or genocide, then you have to present other facts USA is not an Empire or recognize the fact it is the Empire. Please correct me if I wrong.

          • HardHawk

            no basically I am saying usa is not an empire because her self it is a colony and not a free nation something they never manage to become. And you are confusing a bunch of thieving scumbags, with an empire meaning you have no idea of the definition of an empire or what make an empire and just parroting their mass media that declared a colony to be an empire rather than the military arm of the globalist and a controlled one base on facts, at hand.

          • Harry Smith

            Empire: an extensive group of states or countries ruled over by a single monarch, an oligarchy, or a sovereign state. (English Oxford living dictionaries).

          • Ronald

            Rome after conquering a nation, granted Roman citizenship to them, they became a part of it.
            America ‘conquered’ Iraq (eg.) but they certainly did not become ‘Americans’. Hawaii being the exception.

          • Harry Smith

            @disqus_DDF3OdLO2s:disqus could you please be so kind and explain me how your statements are linked to the our discussion with @disqus_HhIfXGh6Ry:disqus, in general, and the definition of Empire, in particular. Thank you in advance.

          • Ronald

            Empire: is a”Monarch, oligarchy or sovereign state”.
            Sovereign: “independent of the control of other governments”.
            Therefore the US Empire, if indeed it is ruled by London or Israel is not sovereign. It is still the British Empire, or the Israeli Empire.
            HardHawk I believe was trying to say the American Empire is an illusion. Forgive me for trying to speak for him.

          • Harry Smith

            @disqus_DDF3OdLO2s:disqus please do not bother about my feeling. In Russia it is normal if somebody says you are stupid and explains why.
            May be I am wrong, but I still believe USA is Empire. If we will ignore my statement about Israel, USA perfectly fits in your definition. And last presidency of Trump showed up to the world that USA is ruled not by it’s citizens, but “deep state”. And deep state is nothing but servant of USA oligarchy. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

          • HardHawk

            all empires created right or wrong have given sovereignty to their subjects as well try to bring their notion of civilization to them. is that to your understanding what the globalists are doing?

            And bravo you know how to read dictionaries so now learn to also use your common sense and understand the difference between an empire and a colony whose militarized and is attacking nations for the sole purpose to steal their natural resources and destroy them turning them into slaves. united states is nothing but a colony and the military arm of the NWO. If is hard for you to digest that then you must be living in another planet.

          • Harry Smith

            My understanding – USA is Empire ruled by oligarchs (deep state) and sovereign state of Israel.

            a colony whose militarized and is attacking nations for the sole purpose to steal their natural resources and destroy them turning them into slaves

            Please be so kind and explain me what was the reason of Punic Wars? Are you sure Rome wanted “bring their notion of civilization” to the Carthage?

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      What you saying is mostly accurate, but talking with a poster here suggested to me that many veterans and that is the paradox in his argument, since all veterans is the ones who fight the wars for the globalists as well committed the atrocities we all know they have and still do, now are against their masters and according to his claims they will free usa. I very much doubt that will happen but then is his argument, he seem to believe.

        This link actually is informative to watch and listen to.

        “Alex Jones explains the globalist plan to use migrants as political weapons to destabilize First World nations and end Western civilization.”

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          I know very well what the globalization plans are I am living them day by day first hand. As for alex jones I dont have much respect for the man and I did at one point knew him personally. He is a reverse psychological tool for the zios where he gets his bigger financing from.

          But thank you just the same.

    US will teach a lesson to russia sooner…

    • FlorianGeyer

      The US will have to study the art of war first and that skill was lost after WW2.

      Since then the US has only been using thugs and thuggery to intimidate far weaker nations that cannot hit mainland America.

      Russia can and will do so in extremis. Rightfully as well.

  • zman

    So Pompous Ass, you failed and now you’re going to double-down on attacking Venezuelan civil infrastructure? Who would have guessed that? I still think a few ‘removals’ would help the situation. Please start with Bolton, he’s the sickest of the bunch.

  • Wraith

    place on alert all you want, wont stop US Navy Tomahawks or F-35s

    • Harry Smith

      Nothing can stop F-35 except platoon of kamikaze pigeons!

      • Concrete Mike

        Hahahaha great one!

  • purplelibraryguy

    “Pompeo said that Russian efforts are directed not only at Venezuela, but also at other South American states as well, such as Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil, and Colombia.”
    Oh my God! You mean the Russians might be planning to donate medicines to them too? The fiends!

  • goingbrokes

    Pompeo was part of constructing the Iraq war scenario in 2003. Him speaking about bringing democracy anywhere makes me puke.

  • iosongasingsing

    Pompeo is a fat swollen paranoid who sees Trump as a prophet of Yaweh. He asks Russia to do what Medvedev did in Libya or Heltsin in the USSR.
    He didn’t understand that Putin burns his eagle’s feathers, he’s really a moron.
