Trump Warns Venezuela Military That They Might “Lose Everything” Supporting Maduro

Donate

On February 18th, US President Donald Trump warned the Venezuelan military personnel still supporting President Nicolas Maduro that they will “lose everything,” during an address in Miami, Florida.

He also urged every member of the “Maduro regime” to “LET YOUR PEOPLE GO.”

He also once more claimed that more than 50 countries recognize “the rightful government of Venezuela,” despite Maduro’s claim that the number is much lower.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton also propagated Trump’s claims. He once more claimed that “Maduro’s cronies” live lavishly, while the Venezuelan people suffer.

He also reiterated the support of all “peace-loving nations” who are ready and willing to help Venezuela “reclaim its democracy, its dignity, its destiny.”

Nicolas Maduro responded to Trump on national television.

“Who is the commander of the armed forces, Donald Trump from Miami?” Maduro asked.

“Donald Trump wants to prohibit ideologies, political diversity, and impose a single thought of the supremacy of the White House (…) They want to impose a colonial model, either we think like Donald Trump and like the gringos, or we are nothing (…) They want to enslave us.”

He also likened the Trump administration’s policy to “Nazi-style discourse.”

Also, following Trump’s address Maduro responded in a tweet, claiming that the time for war is over and that “the empire in its madness” is blind to that.

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parilla also condemned Trump’s words. In a Tweet he slammed the POTUS’ “offensive speech” and threat of military aggression.

In addition, Vice President of Communication, Culture and Tourism, Jorge Rodriguez announced that teleSUR TV will organize a concert on February 22nd and 23rd at the Simon Bolivar bridge at the border with Columbia. The event will be organized by Maduro’s government.

Venezuelan artists will perform in a “Hands off Venezuela Concert” and free medicine and boxes of food will be given out to citizens.

This also coincides with the deadline announced by US-Proclaimed Interim President Juan Guaido as the moment of entry of the US humanitarian aid.

Also on February 18th, Chilean President Sebastián Piñera announced that he and Columbian President Ivan Duque will visit Cucuta, at the Columbian border with Venezuela to personally oversee the delivery of humanitarian aid from Chile on February 22nd.

“Venezuela and its people need international support to regain their freedom and democracy. With the President @IvanDuque we will be on Friday in Cúcuta delivering humanitarian aid to those who have been suffering crisis caused by the dictatorship #AvalanchaHumanitaria @jguaido”

      Everything is a pack of lies, and i mean everything………US AIR FREIGHT COMPANY THAT SMUGGLED WEAPONS INTO VENEZUELA IS LINKED TO CIA “BLACK SITE” RENDITIONS. This is endemic and Institutionalised corruption.

      The parallels between aspects of the Contra scandal and the current situation in Venezuela are striking. Also Cuba and the bay of pigs comes to mind.

      All war crimes and crimes against humanity. It is time the US elite went before the Hague.

      • jm74

        Bypass the Hague and straight to the gallows……they have no respect so why give them any.

      • Sinbad2

        It’s America, war and war crimes is all they do.

      • Sakaramanga

        unfortunately with this MSM and strict Globalism agenda, they do not answer to anyone.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Its time that the US elite was just thrown into a deep mineshaft that is then pumped full of pig shit.

        • Doom Sternz

          Its because of endemic and Institutionalised corruption. For instance why do they call the press the fourth estate……heres why.

          The term ‘Fourth Estate’ makes implicit reference to the historical division of the Three Estates of the Realm: the clergy, the nobility, and the commoners.

          The purpose of the fourth estate is to act as an counterbalance. Endemic and Institutionalised corruption has aligned 3 estates against the people, which means there is no longer a functioning democracy.

          This of course is fascism.

          • FlorianGeyer

            It is true to say I think, that the 4th estate has always been influenced by various cults in nefarious ways, but the literally thousands of pre 1960’s media outlets, are now directly owned by a small group of oligarchs and other cult like organisations. Even the independence of local media has been sucked into the control of the major outlets , such as CNN.

            The High Priests are again telling us what ‘We need to know’ and the internet is being censored.

      • BMWA1

        Since Trump lost command of US military, he thought he might give that of VZ (one of his ‘sh@t-hole’ countries in his mind) a try.

      • You can call me Al

        Air America ?.

    • Sinbad2

      Somebody should fit him with one of those anti barking collars.

      • Sakaramanga

        hahaha, yes exactly”

    • Nowruz

      I think he used the same approach towards North Korea. The only difference is that North Korea has nukes, Venezuela doesn’t. I’m almost certain the US will invade Venezuela or have proxies from Colombia and Brazil to create havoc. I look forward to the Russian aid which completely negates the US’ narrative of supplying the “humanitarian aid” I mean, weapons.

      • Sakaramanga

        North Korea nukes has and will never be a problem for the US, and they know that. It only helps US to control Japan and Korea more effectively whilst gaining the chance to play the good guy to the Western people by demonizing Kim Jong Un and promotring him as a threat to the World, as if US is not #1 threat herself.

        About Venezuela, problem is, US and Russia have some kind of peace treaty since WWII. This has led them to govern and/or exploit west and the east respectively without letting any major war emerge. (20 years btw WWI and II but no WW since then). They do not confront each other directly.

        But the US, by creating a Vietnam for Russia (Soviets) back in the ’80s (Afghanistan) and later creating Georgia, Ukraine and Arabian spring conflicts, have sort of violated this unspoken treaty but by then US had advanced over Russia a lot (due to disintegration of the USSR and following gradual yield to capitalism) and Russia is now not so much of a power to scare US out of the ME or VZ. Unfortunately, gradual shrinking of ex-Soviets continuing. Maestro being the Zionists, of course.

        I hope I am wrong.

    it’s funny how Haiti has a major humanitarian AND government crisis right now, but USA is silent and not sending aid. You want to know why? Haiti has NO oil. By the way, it’s as if USA is forcing this “aid” upon the Venezuelans because they really want to arm the opposition without resorting to direct military intervention. USA wants Venezuela’s gold and oil and wont stop unless they’re completely exposed.

    • Ivanus59

      It’s not that they have no oil, it’s that Haiti is already controlled by US terrorists. Idiot supporters of US regime-change in Venezuela basically want Venezuela to become like Haiti or Ukraine or Libya…
      In other words they want to destroy it and create a puppet defunct state which will be 100% dependent on the mercy of zionists…

    • BMWA1

      So you are not believing that Pompeo and Bolton are humanitarians as to purpose in VZ? Back in the day, you would be called “A Doubting Thomas”!

      • You can call me Al

        Back in the day, the likes of Bolton, Pomeo and Trump would be called a “John Thomas”.

    • Tony Seed

      Not correct, only in the sense that US has Haiti right where it wants it: on the ground. This also explains the appearance of American mercenaries who were arrested by chance few days ago, on being a former US Marine Corps major. fyi: https://tonyseed.wordpress.com/2019/02/19/operation-chaos-americans-and-other-mercenaries-charged-with-conspiracy-in-wake-of-haitian-protests/

  • Sukhoi-35

    I guarantee if Venezuela intercepts this “aid” and searches it thoroughly, they’ll most likely find M16, TOW missiles, SMAW rockets, 81mm mortar, m2 browning, light machineguns, ammo, combat medical aid, etc.”

    • Nowruz

      No need for US aid (which like you said is probably a large cache of weapons for Guaido’s traitorous supporters) Russia is bringing the humanitarian aid on Wednesday.

      • Antikapitalista

        Venezuela has lost about 6000000000 USD due to U.S. sanctions; Venezuela has been losing about 30000000 USD a day due to U.S. sanctions.

        And now the U.S.A., Branson and other morons have been haggling for weeks over the delivery of humanitarian aid worth only 20000000 USD, i.e. worth merely 16 hours of the U.S. sanctions against Venezuela.

  • jm74

    Typical behaviour of a coward relying on bullying to cloak an inferior character. Has anyone ever sat this moron on his arse?

  • Carlos Correia

    so the US wants to test the S-300 system, that could be a nasty surprise, the dense tropical forest can give excellent air view cover even using infrared, hope it never comes to that but once again an US president is willing to send he’s citizens children to die for Oil, again. Mass media is pushing war and brainwashing the parents brains.

  • El Mashi

    Colombia and Chile are the most unequal societies in Latin America. Just like the white racist Venezuelan elites need foreign intervention, the masses of poor Colombians and Chileans need international support for social justice. The white racist Venezuelan elites have no popular support. It’s like David Duke of the Ku Klux Klan trying to get elected as Mayor of Detroit.

    • Barba_Papa

      It sounds like YOU are the racist. Painting everybody with that identity politics brush again?

      • Sinbad2

        Lots of people don’t like wiggers, can you blame them?

        • El Mashi

          Inferiority complex?

  • Gregory Casey

    Colombia should be careful what it wishes for …….. all of those silent left-leaning paramilitaries that fought Colombia (with the US) to a standstill over 30+ years remain in the Jungle and in the Mountains bordering Venezuela and are ready willing and able to come to the aid of their Family in Venezuela.

    • FlorianGeyer

      That makes very good sense and I hope you are correct.

      • Gregory Casey

        I strongly suspect that I am Florian,

        • FlorianGeyer

          Yes, there will certainly be scores to settle after the US inspired ethnic cleansing on Colombia .

  • verner

    hey donny do not threaten since it might come back and hit you severely hard in the head, you know that twat – what goes around comes around, so rest assured that there is a whole bunch of trump-haters out there just waiting to get a clear shot at you. so be careful!
