The propaganda war on the situation in Venezuela has reached a new level. Fox News just came a report speculating that Russia has put nuclear missiles in Venezuela.
“Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday and made a case for backing opposition to disputed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and suggested that Russia had installed nuclear missiles in the South American nation.
“Imagine if this regime that now is receiving a lot of international pressure survives, is it or is it not potentially a green light, an open door for the Russians and for the Chinese and for others to increase their activity against our national security interest right here in our hemisphere, “Diaz-Balart told Carlson.
Tuesday, tensions flared in Caracas between newly elected President Juan Guaido supporters who clashed with pro-Maduro forces.
Carlson pressed the congressman on if he thought anti-American forces would invade the U.S.
“No. It’s kind of hard to see what you’re talking about. Are you suggesting they are going to invade?” Carlson asked.
“The United States, the closest we ever came to nuclear war was because the Russians put missiles, right, nuclear missiles in Cuba,” Diaz-Balart said.
“Are you saying the Russians will put nuclear missiles in Venezuela?” Carlson asked.
“What I am suggesting is that they are already there,” Diaz-Balart said. He did not offer any evidence. Russia famously landed a nuclear-capable bomber in the country late last year and recently confirmed that it has military personnel in the country.”
It remains unclear who, how and when elected Guaido to be the “President” of Venezuela, besised the Washington establishment for sure. Guaido did not even participate in the 2018 Presidential election. It remains even more unclear when Moscow had installied its nuclear missiles in the country.
However, it’s clear that mainstream media outlets and US politicians are furious over the recent failed attempt of Guaido and its armed supporters to seize power by force.
