Trump: Russia Must Get Out Of Venezuela, All Options Are Open

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

On March 27, speaking in the White House, US President Donald Trump said that Russia must get out of Venezuela and warned that “all options are open” in order to achieve this goal.

Around 100 Russian troops touched down in Caracas on March 23 under the terms of a 2001 cooperation treaty between the two states. The move caused a wave of rumors in the mainstream media. Most of them about Russian special forces and a possible Russian military involvement in the event of the US invasion.

US Vice President Mike Pence described the deployment an “unnecessary provocation.” Pence also called on Moscow to withdraw its support of Venezuelan President Maduro and “stand with Juan Guaido,” the Washington-proclaimed interim president of the country.

Trump’s Security Adviser John Bolton was more hostile in his remarks.

In own turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the deployment was carried out “in strict accordance with the constitution of that country and with full respect for its legal norms.”

This situation is another example how the US is openly meddling into Venezuelan internal affairs claiming that this is a move to defend democracyi.

    The Ziocorporate US psychopath terrorists are delusional. Venezuela’s vast natural resources are inevitably going to be a part of an alternate monetary system where the US dollar will dominate nothing, it’s China and Russia’s vision of the future.

    Degenerate US Ziojew unhinged criminals can’t stop this, not even World War 3 will. Ziocunt neocolonialists need to get over themselves.

    It is expected that in the end it is the Koch brothers behind all of this. They set up their refineries specifically for the viscosity of the Venezuelan oil. Their desire is to correct, or control their supplies, and they don’t care much about who has to die for that to happen.

    • Concrete Mike

      Is that right? Which oil would that be? The heavy tar sands like we have (orinoco or something like that) or the light stuff around maracaibo?

    • zman

      I would not be surprised at that at all. They are well known for their thieving ways. They tried to get the state of Wisconsin to sell off their electrical generating system to them. They Had their shill, Tea Bagger Gov Scott Walker to try to pass a privatization scheme hidden in an anti-union proposition. They are the No.1 thieves trying to privatize anything and everything. Like education, the VA, utilities and god knows what else. They are the driving force and big money behind the Tea Baggers. They have their filthy hands into everything evil…and Americans worry about the Russians?

      • Snowglobe

        “…and Americans worry about the Russians?”

        You have hit the nail on the head. There is a lot of skullduggery that is being hidden behind the Russian collusion narrative. The attempted coupe was only a part of it.

    “””On March 27, speaking in the White House, US President Donald Trump said that Russia must get out of Venezuela and warned that “all options are open” in order to achieve this goal.”””

    Trump’s options are limited, his military is in no shape to challenge the Russians, their navy is highly vulnerable to supersonic and hypersonic missiles, it is time for the Russians to sanction American thievery.

  • Thunder

    nope…..

    US Vice President Mike Pence described the deployment an “unnecessary provocation.”

    I don’t know Pence… Russia kicking you US neocon chickenhawks in the nuts once again is arguably a necessary provocation. Someone has to do it, and it’s damn entertaining. FFS, Venezuelans need protection from the IMF.

    In any case, on behalf of the little people of the United States: THANKS AGAIN, RUSSIA! We owe you.

    • White_American_Patriot

      The Russians went crying home to Mommy with shit in their pants when the US went to Defcon 2 during the Cuban missile crisis. Those Russians don’t want it, TRUST me. This little puny detachment is just a dog and pony show. Putin knows.

      • jm74

        You got it wrong; Russia took pity on your poor slobs and saved your worthless life. On hindsight it was a mistake, they should have ended your existence and saved millions globally, never mind though your GMO will do the job and you are a prime example that it is working.

      • Vas

        Different times my dear pseudo-murican immigrant.

        Back then the USSR was way behind the US in terms of nuclear weapons and especially ICBMs they had only a handful, USA had 7-8 times bigger ICBM arsenal during that period, so USSR really was at a disadvantage.

        But in the middle 70s and especially in the 80s USSR far way passed the United States in warheads and launchers of all kind and so USSR could play on equal terms, like Russia can now.
        And also don’t forget, that during the Cuban crisis, the USA also back down by removing the Jupiter missiles from Turkey, so it was a win-win for both sides situation but the american propaganda at the time and much later didn’t said anything about it.

      • Pave Way IV

        The Venezuelan military (despite it’s worthless, corrupt generals) is the heart of Venezuela. No government exists in Venezuela if the military opposes it. The only thing needed to really rally the military there was an imminent threat – an identifiable enemy that must be opposed.

        Bolton and Abrams tried to sell the Venezuelan military a demonized Maduro as the source of all Venezuela’s problems and Guaido as the ‘solution’.

        The Venezuelan military instead collectively identified the US as the imminent threat. It was the US neocon warmongers and oil thieves led by Bolton and Abrams that need to be opposed.

        The Russian military are there for the exact same reason they showed up to help the Syrian military: to remind the soldiers who they’re fighting for and against, and (just like in Syria) that it has little to do with their current, worthless corrupt-ass generals. Generals that were probably corrupted by the US in order to discourage the military.

      • Concrete Mike

        If thats how you think cuban crisis went down i will let you wallow in your own dilusions.

      • gustavo

        You are totally disinformed by your government. There was a USA-Russia deal a that moment. USA had to move their missiles out of Europe and Turkey, and Russia had to move their missiles out of Cuba. Both of them did those things, that is all.

        • White_American_Patriot

          US nuclear weapons remained in Europe overall

          Russia got punked, hard

          • Harry Smith

            If the USA are so strong and powerful, what stops Trump from sending 2 battalions of USA marines to Venezuela? As everybody knows from Hollywood war movies, your beloved masters have no fear, am I right?

          • gustavo

            I repeat it, USA removed his nuclear weapons of Europe. You are miss informed by your media, as usual. Not worry, you are a normal north-american brainwashed.

          • zman

            I know there are a lot of USA, USA! fools in my country, but I’m not so sure this poor excuse for a shill is even American…more likely an Israeli imposter. What happened in 1962 is well known by Americans and so is the deal that ended the confrontation.

          • White_American_Patriot

            But you’re wrong, retard. The US even installed Pershing missiles later on and Russia did nothing lol

      • Antikapitalista

        Are you so stupid, or merely so brainwashed? :-D

        The Soviets did not withdraw from Cuba because the Murricans shitted their pants all the way to DEFCON 2, but because the Murricans not only so scared of a few unassembled Soviets missiles in Cuba that they even agreed to withdraw their already fully assembled missiles from Turkey, but were also so ashamed of this strategic Soviet victory that they begged them to remain silent about it…
        … so that ordinary, stupid Murricans like you could still be brainwashed like you have been.

        So, yes this was an amazing feat pulled on the Murricans by the Soviets. Before the events, the Murricans were happily deploying nuclear-tipped missiles around the Soviet Union.

        So, Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchov got the brilliant idea of following the Murricans’ example and do the same—deploying missiles in some U.S. backyard.

        It was because the Union of Soviet Socialistic Republics (U.S.S.R.) did not have as many nukes or nuclear-tipped missiles as the United States of Aggression (U.S.A.).
        The U.S.S.R. surpassed the U.S.A. in the number of nukes in the early 1970s.

        And it was Comrade Khrushchev who openly mentioned the doom of the world and the catastrophe of thermonuclear war in his first message.
        In the second message, he demanded the withdrawal of U.S. missiles from Turkey.

        And the Murricans complied, of course, as history teaches us.

        The thing was that the Murricans could not even know what the Soviets had already there. They had discovered a Soviet base owing to some traditional spies on the ground.
        But they could not get the picture, the full picture, because their U-2 spy planes would have been shot down by Soviet SA-2 missiles, as they truly were:
        https://www.history.com/news/the-cuban-missile-crisis-pilot-whose-death-may-have-saved-millions

        They were monitoring what he was doing. They knew precisely where he was and what he was after.
        After had been trying and prying his nose too deep into Cuban sovereign matters, the Soviets decided he had gone too far and took him out. (In case you do not understand: they shot him down.)

        Nowadays the situation is different, of course. Russia has a lot more nukes than 57 years ago, assembled ones, ready for immediate deployment and delivery to anyone threatened with dastardly invasions by the United States of Aggression, as history teaches us that the Murricans understand only the argument of nuclear weapons and the threat of getting killed; time and again they have shown that they are impervious to any other rational argument, so do not blame the Russians when they decide to use the only language which the Murricans really understand.

        There were U.S. nuclear-tipped medium-range ballistic missiles in Turkey (i. e. right at the Soviet Union doorsteps), before the crisis,
        there were no U.S. nuclear-tipped medium-range ballistic missiles in Turkey after the crisis.

        Thus, is is absolutely clear whose strategic victory it was.

        Not only the Murricans had to withdraw them, not only did they pledge never to attack or invade Cuba again, they were so ashamed of their ignominious defeat that they even asked the Soviets to remain silent about it.

        Now, the question remains why the Murricans are so stupid, or at least so brainwashed, that they cannot learn from history and from their past mistakes.

        Why does it take deploying nukes (thjis time, apparently, to Venezuela) to make the Murricans understand international law again and make them refrain from yet another dastardly invasion?

        Do not blame the Russians, the Murricans are provoking it.
        It is not the Russians’ fault that nukes are the only thing the Murricans understand.

      True. We owe Russia!

        Many also came as political and religios refugees.

        We also see it well in all are allowed to be armed against a too strong rule by the one elected above them.

    The free world should not tolerate these disgusting tantrums from the US EVIL Empire. It is time for some reinforcements from Iran, NK, China and all other nations who value their freedom. If Venezuela falls then they will be next.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      I think Venezuelans are enough to defend their country. Any country who dont get off her ass and defend their homeland they dont deserve to be free and definitely not masters of their destiny. This slave mentality all to expect someone else to die for their freedom is not belong to the free world so think again.

      • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

        I agree, just as the Syrians were capable of defending their own country. However, the US Evil Empire needs the re-education with S300s and S400s fully manned by soldiers of freedom.
        Gee, those White Swans looked magnificent in VZ, don’t you think?

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          But venezuela had S300 for many years now and they are fully trained in the use of them as well their army is not an army to take lightly especially fighting in their own environment and motherland.

          The russians arriving in venezuela are experts on electronic warfare that is needed and also a warranty supply of what the venezuelans will need in case of war. That they have since russia and china are standing next to them.

            Yes, India is now a full member of the SCO, but Modi is still playing both ways and likes to suck up to the US. Unless India makes up its mind soon, it could well end up like the Ukraine of Asia.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            that be very bad if it happen. But I think is economical the reasons since india and UK have a lot of common interest, that it take a century to separate their ways or am I wrong?

    These are troubling times. Word is that the scientists at Los Alamos have the design for a fierce new weapon. The new bomb works like this : At one end of the bomb is a capsule containing Pence and Pompeo. At the other end is a capsule containing Bolton and Abrams. At the center , another capsule contains Trump. At detonation , explosive charges drive the outer capsules towards the center at high speed and the resulting collision creates a critical mass of repulsiveness that turns all of that (considerable) mass into pure energy in a flash , releasing the destructive power of a million Hiroshima-type bombs.

    The use of such a bomb would not be all bad , for obvious reasons. However , we can only hope that the bomber pilot responsible for deploying the weapon will ignore the orders of his superiors , and instead of dropping it on , say , Russia or China , will choose to drop it where it would do the most good : on Tel Aviv.

    It is easy to ridicule Trump’s arrogance, and I don’t demure from it. However, Venezuela is a good battleground for the Americans to choose if they are to confront the Russians militarily. The USA has a long history of military involvement in South America and the Caribbean. Just looking at a map would tell you that the USA is strongly strategically placed. I think the Russians are careful and wise and I believe they would not get involved on a battleground of their enemies choosing. This is just sensible strategic thinking.
    Russia could support the Venezuelans in the same way they supported the Vietnamese. However, I don’t think the Venezuelans have the metal for such a conflict. Alternatively the Russians could counter strike in an area where they are strategically strong. This is what I would have done during the Cuba crisis and taken Berlin. At the moment it’s just chest thumping and bluster. But it could escalate. I think there is a higher probability of America invading Venezuela than say Iran. At the moment I think the Russians have a difficult situation. They will realize that being drawn into a military conflict in Venezuela is fighting on the battleground of their enemies choosing. On the other hand Russia must have some redlines of their own. I know this is so as I am certain ant attack on Crimea would result in a furious response. Not sure about Venezuela.
