Venezuela Broke Diplomatic Ties With U.S. After Trump Recognised Opp Leader As Acting President

The US is fueling crisis in Venezuela in an obvious attempt to implement a regime change policy in the country.

On January 23, US President Donald Trump once again declared the government of Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro “illegitimate” and officially recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as “the Interim President of Venezuela”.

Later, Trump told reporters at the White House when asked if he was considering sending the US military to the country, that all options were on the table for Venezuela.

“We’re not considering anything, but all options are on the table,” he said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Maduro to step aside and confirmed the US support to the transitional government.

“The Venezuelan people have suffered long enough under Nicolas Maduro’s disastrous dictatorship”, he said. “We call on Maduro to step aside in favour of a legitimate leader reflecting the will of the Venezuelan people.”

Multiple reports appeared in the media that Washington is considering imposing an oil embargo against Venezuela if its government takes action to defend his government.

Meanwhile, Guaido, the president of the disempowered National Assembly, claimed that he had entered the office as Interim President of Venezuela. He claimed that 4 of the 23 Venezuelan states had joined the protests against the government and called on the army to support the protesters. After this, he reportedly fled to the Colombian embassy where he’s waiting for the international community to intervene.

Several, Latin American countries, including Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Brazil, with a high US influence in within the government also decided to recognize the opposition leader as Venezuela’s interim president.

A look at the situation in the capital of Caracas:

According to different sources, from 2 to 6 people were killed in clashes between protesters and police. Multiple people were injured.

In response, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said that his country was breaking diplomatic and political relations with the US, and gave Washington’s diplomats 72 hours to leave. The president vowed to fight for the people’s right to peace and a sovereign government of their choosing.

He accused the US of attempting to stage a coup in the country.

Russia recognizes Maduro as the legitimate president of Venezuela.

“I think that in this developing situation the United States is trying to carry out an operation to organize the next color revolution [a regime change attempt] in Venezuela,” the deputy chairman of the foreign affairs committee of the upper house of parliament, Andrei Klimov, told the state-run news agency RIA Novosti.

“I do not think that we can recognize this — it is, in essence, a coup,” another committee member, Vladimir Dzhabrailov, was quoted as saying by the agency Interfax.

Pro-opposition sources speculate that security forces opened live fire on protesters, but no evidence has been provided so far:

    Suprisingly as it might be I´m with the US on this one. People under Maduro´s rule is starving and dying, this is the first time I would see the US do something good with their army.

    • so

      You don’t think the US had some thing to do with that starvation. I suppose you’d just have the US come in and privatize everything. Giving their resources away for pennies on the dollar. Defrauding the Venezuelan citizens of their natural right. Sadly you just don’t understand how Evil my country is.
      I pity the human race with people like you in it. You care nothing for anyone but yourself.

      • occupybacon

        Yes, humans are animals that need food and meds. Better let US take over than starving your own people. There is A LOT more liberty under US rule than under Maduro. It’s a dirty job that Trump assumed. Other South American countries will follow. Maybe Brazil, hopefully.

        • so

          Keep on dreaming up that propaganda. Maduro and Chavez actually did something for their people. Which is more than the US government ever did for its own citizens.

          • occupybacon

            Like sizing guns and allowing only the pro-government militia to have guns… a good example for the US government. Id’s say you keep on dreaming.

        • Tudor Miron

          If you personally didn’t develop into human being but degraded to animal that is your personal problem. Stop suggesting others to follow this whore mentality that you show here.

        • Concrete Mike

          Stop lying . The only thing us wants is plunder . Nothing else.
          The idea that more liberty would follow is laughable…libya is a perfect example!!

          You are nothing but a state department shill. I dont know what whoever wrote the script your on is smoking, but holy fuck thay shits whack!!!

          Mind your own business!

      • Brother Ma

        Or he may just be one of those “useful idiots” .You know like the two Scandi girls who thought all headchoppers are just misunderstood and they knew better.

    • Tudor Miron

      Your level of misunderstanding is astonishing. That’s not Maduro who’s making people of Venesuela starving. That is USA. What Maduro is trying to do is preserving some sort of soveregnity to his country so it can develop for the good of their people. USA is strangling Venesuela so it goes back to being their colony. Will it be better for Venesuelians to be colony? Look at Ukraine as an example – they promised thick and thin but result is that Ukraine became poorest country in Europe. Whore may prefer to be slaves for a peace of bread but actual humans will fight for his freedom.

  • montezuma_rg

    Clearly most people do not understand the situation at hand; i am no expert on this matter but what i do not is that those people that i have spoken to that are from venezuela only blame the U.S for whats going on in their country, for creating all the caos, granted Maduro is no “great” president on that everyone can agree, but if their was no external political pressure on venezuela most people would not mind having so call “dictator” run the country as long as they have food and a shelter

    • so

      The Evil Rich must always have more more more…….

    • occupybacon

      And why is a dictator that is happy to see his own people starving better than the US hegemony?

      • so

        Who created the starving? Google “Moon of Alabama.org” Learn something.

        • occupybacon

          Both Maduro and the US are guilty for the starving but US is not meant to care of the Venezuelans more than Maduro do. Why a man thinks that it’s better for millions of HIS OWN people to starve rather than him to step out of the room?

          • Sinbad2

            No just Americans like you.

          • occupybacon

            Ouch, that burns.

          • Sinbad2

            Why, your only renting America.

          • Nowruz

            Five people just got killed in Florida yet the US feels they should be the country to set an example of being diplomatic? I believe the US needs to mind their own business. Why does the US feel the need to interfere other countries internal affairs? Look at Libya how did that work out post Gathafi? How is the diplomacy in Afghanistan working? When has the US ever cared about another countries wellbeing?

          • occupybacon

            Gaddafi was not starving his own people like Maduro. I never said US should care about Venezuelans, but Maduro should care. They are literary starving.

          • Sinbad2

            Well that is a lie, but the US has made life very unpleasant for Venezuelans.
            Are you Venezuelan?
            If not what makes you think you have the right to rule over others?

          • occupybacon

            Venezuelans are not ruling their own country. That’s the definition of the dictature, you dummy

          • Alex

            Same goes for the US and yeah there people starving over there too, despite having a GPD of 20 trillion.

          • so

            Back to the NY Times for you.

          • Luke Hemmming

            Almost everyone here knows the USA is not really going to help the venuzualeans but merely to insert a controlled sock puppet that will create a climate that will ensure foreign interests can get a foothold into controlling oil and energy infrastructure, banking and other industries. Everything else they say is just a front to appease certain people and justify the interfernce. The USA can t even feed and house ALL of its own citizens so why should we believe the US government? A quick look look back through history and we see a constant theme running win relation to the USA bringing ‘democracy and freedom’ to foreign countries. They don’t do jack shit except fuck the country up after pillaging everything of value from it. Then they drop it like a hot potato. Don’t treat us like fools. We fucking know what is really going on here. Stop interfering in other sovereign states USA. We are all getting tired of this shit.

      • Nowruz

        Do you know when the people of Venezuela is staving? Name the cause and effect. All you are seeing is the effect. I give you one consequence, the US has sanctioned a lot of Venezuela’s oil industries which accounts for over 95% of their GDP.

        • so

          Thank You. And that’s just the beginning!’

        • occupybacon

          And Maduro is happy to see his people starving than giving up the power. How classy from him!

          • so

            He does not want to see his people RAPED by the Evil US government and its corporations.

          • occupybacon

            So you’re bragging that you are american huh ;)

          • Alex

            Are you going to repeat the same thing over and over again, you poor mind.

          • Brother Ma

            You are a contrary fool who will not see reason but keep parrotting crap about giving up to the Americans.

            Here is an idea.;keep your ranting for the American gov. Tell them to back off and you will see the poor Venezuelans you care about SO MUCH have more than enough food. Try that ,friend.

      • Omega

        The Anglo-Americans can care less about the Venezualian people. It’s about their oil.

        • Sinbad2

          Not just the oil, the US will take everything, power water etc, and make the Venezuelan people debt slaves.

          • so

            Just like they do to their own citizens. Our Benevolent Masters.

          • Sinbad2

            EXACTLY.
            I wish Americans could see what is being done to them.

        • occupybacon

          And those who defend Maduro care even less about the Venezuelans. They are pretending for the exactly same reason.

          • Omega

            You parrot the Western narrative: demonize those you want out of your way.

            Venezuela is in its current state mostly due to US economic warfare crippling its economy.

            The degenerate Anglo-American Empire needs to end once and for all for world peace to prevail.

          • occupybacon

            Isn’t more easy for Maduro to step down now and let the people eat?

          • Omega

            Not sure what you’re on about in repeating the “food” argument but as I said, you merely regurgitate the Anglo-American narrative without applying the slightest critical thinking.

            Besides it’s up to the Venezuelan people to decide what they want; not you or me.

          • occupybacon

            Unfortunately Chaves confiscated all their guns so they are unable to start a revolution. Maybe if US and Brazil sends some they could.

          • Alex

            They should send some poison to your food, so that you won’t get any stupid ideas anymore.

          • Omega

            No wonder for guns when the army is by Maduro’s side.

          • Alex

            Janukovich has stepped down, ukranians have got even less to eat now than they did before 2014, a lot less.

          • occupybacon

            They are receiving less food than before 2014 you say… Nobody starved Ukrainians more than Russians by confiscating their food during Holodomor

          • Alex

            BS, ukranians were taking food from ukranians during holodomor, not the russians.

      • Sinbad2

        The Americans starve the people of other countries so America can afford to invade other countries.
        If the USA was destroyed, millions would be lifted out of poverty.
        Look at the countries that are controlled by America, and they are getting poorer, look at the countries that defy America, and they are getting richer.

        • occupybacon

          Tell me again how America should be destroyed, cause I forgot since your last comments.

          • Sinbad2

            Destroy the tool of the moneylenders, the US dollar.
            Anybody who supports freedom and liberty should buy gold or silver, and burn the filthy shekels.

          • occupybacon

            From what I remember you were more in favor of a nuclear strike from Russia

          • Sinbad2

            Well you remember wrong.
            A nuclear strike might be plan B, but plan A, economic collapse will hurt those who are guilty, and help the oppressed American people.

          • occupybacon

            But being the country with the highest productivity of work, on top of Germany and Japan, they will come back before anyone else. And the economic collapse would be global anyway. I guess it was always plan B for you.

          • Sinbad2

            The only thing America produces is moneylenders.

          • occupybacon

            Lending works also as a system of credibility: If a bank trusted you, they verified you, that means I can do business with you. It’s a bit more complicated system. Other countries would do that too if they had the international recognition as long term good business partners.

          • Sinbad2

            If a bank trusted me?
            Very funny, banks don’t trust anybody, especially other banks.

          • Sinbad2

            “But being the country with the highest productivity of work,”

            You have won the BS’r of the day award, come up and accept your prize, a freshly minted turd.

        • Brother Ma

          I agree. The whole world needs to attack America as it is cancerous and will kill all of us. They are a pernicious malign influence on world events.

      • Tudor Miron

        Do you prefer slavery (with some food) to fighting for your freedom and better life (in the long run)?

        • occupybacon

          More freedom and better life in the long run with under US instead of slavery with ‘some food’ under Maduro.

          • Alex

            Now that’s bs, plenty of examples to prove you wrong.

          • Tudor Miron

            “more freedom and better life in the ling run”(c) what a pile of crap! Do you know how Venesuela was living under US rule (before Chaves)?

      • Dušan Mirić

        You’r almost right. No need for the USA to starve Venezuela by means of special war. They are wasting energy on making enemies.

      • Dušan Mirić

        All they have to do is to leave Venezuelans alone. Maduro is bad but war is worse.

    American spring incoming… by CIA

    • so

      I think they have been setting that up for awhile now. See the whole of South America and whatever else we can get our greedy hands on.

    • occupybacon

      …and starving people.

  • Mistaron

    Today, the rules of international diplomacy and laws, drew their last breath.

    • so

      Sadly my Evil and Corrupt government has been it from day one.

    • occupybacon

      I agree with you but a president that would have just a drop of shame would declare war on US then surrender next 5 mins to let them take over and stop the hunger

      • Sinbad2

        The hunger will only grow worse if the US starts pillaging, look at Iraq.

        • occupybacon

          Let’s not compare apples to oranges. Iraq, Libya, Syria interventions are criminal. Venezuela would put an end to a real criminal regime.

          • Concrete Mike

            Bullshit stop the liberal intervensionism, you guys just screw it up, you know why?
            Because you dont plan to fix anything, all you do is kill and steal.

            Go the fuck home!

          • occupybacon

            Just curious, did you ever hope that I’m american?

          • Concrete Mike

            Who said you have to be american to support liberal intervensionnism? Im saying its a bad idea period, wether your from america or zanzibar.

          • Brother Ma

            Bravo. Tell this Occupy Bacon fool to go sit in Uncle Sam’s lap. He is used to being there and being fondled.

          • jm74

            Maybe Venezuela should organize mass destruction on US territory, a taste of their own medicine and let them spend $$$ in combating internal terrorism.

          • occupybacon

            Maybe it should organize an asylum for retards like you.

          • jm74

            Ah, another flunky. Frightened that your actions will have repercussions? Your name suits you; an occupied sow.

          • Concrete Mike

            LOLOL busy sow nice one

          • Omega

            It’s not apples to oranges but the exact same exact thing: all sorts of measures are taken to demonize and weaken the targeted nation. The media then takes care of the ideological warfare which ultimately leads to a military intervention.

          • occupybacon

            You care even less about the Venezuelans than Americans. Nobody in Americas can stand SUA, it’s common sense to not use your own people as canon fodder against the greatest power in the world. A sacrifice that most dictators are ready to do is sacrificing their own people for noble ideas…

          • Omega

            Don’t make this about me. You’re the one advocating another US military intervention.

            Americans are mostly zombified sheep who have no clue of what “their” government did or does. When I write “Anglo-American empire”, I imply the degenerate oligarchs and their military-industrial-financial complex running it.

          • Guess

            Totally clueless or you’re just shilling. So tell me, the US financial war on Venezuela has nothing to do with why the country is in this current mess, right?

          • Sinbad2

            The point is, it’s up to Venezuelans not foreigners to decide their fate, mind your own business.

          • Brother Ma

            Who says?

      • Tudor Miron

        Stop the hanger? Just as they did in Ukraine?

        • occupybacon

          Thank you for working hard to prove my point. The only time Ukraine starved was under Muscovites rule.

          • Tudor Miron

            Are you really trying to say that Ukraine is in better shape now than it was before 2014? Really? Should we look at simple statistics?

          • Sinbad2

            Well Jewish Ukrainians are better off, and that’s all bacon is interested in.

          • occupybacon

            Most Russian Billionaires are Jewish too, they are throwing expensive watches at Putin.

          • Sinbad2

            Which one feeds you?

          • occupybacon

            I will repeat it because we all can see you have a deformed head: only Russians starved Ukrainians.

          • KGBDonald

            We all can see you are a braindead zombie parroting maidanazi lies and stale Reagan propaganda. Far more Russians died under communist rule than so-called Ukrainians. More Ukrainians (proportionally) were in Soviet high leadership than Russians. So did Ukrainians starve Russians? Stalin was georgian, perhaps Georgians starved poor little Ukies? Ask Saakashvili.
            btw how many millions died in the British empire from starvation? Exactly the same period.

          • occupybacon

            I would like to argue with you about Ukraine but now it’s about Venezuela and there will be enough articles about Ukraine.

          • Alex

            Nonsense, only ukrainians have starved ukrainians and are doing the same now.

          • Tudor Miron

            When have you been in Ukraine last time? I’m talking with my relatives daily and I know first hand what is going on.

          • Dušan Mirić

            They both starved under communist regime. russians suffers most

        • KGBDonald
    • Sinbad2

      It’s not the first time the US has pulled this stunt, they rule the world don’t you know :)

      We’re just napalming the world with liberty and democracy because nobody else can or will. We’re on a mission from Gog.

  • Sinbad2

    Maduro should recognize Hillary Clinton as the American President, and urge Americans to rise up and restore democracy.

    • Nowruz

      Haha, I think she’s more of a warmonger than Trump. But I get your point.

    • Joe Stevens

      You have a point. She did win the popular vote.

    • occupybacon

      Sounds good, I don’t see any problem.

  • Tudor Miron

    “After this, Guaido reportedly fled to the Colombian embassy where he’s waiting for the international community to intervene.”(C) “People” president indeed :) He’s really ejoying massive “support” of Venesuelian people.

    • occupybacon

      Maybe not a leader but at this point anyone but Maduro would be preferable

    • GRAHL

      not the people he fears. It’s the army

      • Tudor Miron

        I don’t know where your are from and how things are in your country but in my country (Russia) army consists of our people and defends its people.

        • GRAHL

          I wish it were that clean in all instances, but sadly in a lot of cases the army defends the hand that feeds them. there are a lot of supporters for Guaido. The whole population is not against him as you imply. hes not hiding from the people. It’s the army he’s hiding from who are still under maduro control. Possibly an arrest warrant for him. Could get ugly I hope not.

          • Tudor Miron

            I do not imply that whole population is against US stooge Guaido. Many are stupid enough to believe that US is interested in better life for Venesuela. Many don’t remember how it was before Chaves. Many are willing to sell their country and people to get their 30 shekels.
            “Possibly an arrest warrant for him.”(c) How would US act if similar situation will happen in their country? How many yellow vests are arrested in France? What Guaido does is against constitution and law – he would be arrested anywhere in the world.

          • GRAHL

            How would people in the US act if similar situation? If trump put all his people in power, including the Supreme Court and disbanded the National Assembly so that he could run unopposed which is against their constitution? In typical dictator fashion? I bet they’d be pissed and they would demonstrate just like some Venezuelans are. Calling those people stupid and working for sheckels….that kind of talk is beneath me. I stand by my remark that Guaido isn’t hiding from his people as you implied. Let’s watch the developments closely.

  • Robert McMaster

    Madero needs to mobilize, arm and bring out into the streets his supporters. In mass numbers. That will consolidate the military. And that will paralyze a US military intervention.

    • Sinbad2

      Maduro should storm the Columbian embassy, arrest the traitor, and then publicly hang him.
      All Americans should be arrested and their assets seized, that’s what America would do.

      Violence is the only thing Americans understand.

    • occupybacon

      And who brings the food?

      • KGBDonald

        Americans will bring the bombs. Bomb them into democraCIA. They won’t be hungry if they are dead. But they will be free. fuck yeah!

      • Robert McMaster

        Oh, that will come straight from the warehouses of the profiteers and hoarders owned by the opposition. The usual, in all such cases.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Western seeks Latin American Maidan…

    • occupybacon

      Finally

  • Rodney Loder

    China and Russia might use their leverage at the UN but probably an invasion is what Venezuela is up against with the EU backing Trump all the way, too many God damned Roman Catholic swine in Latin America, so what the hell else can you expect, I mean these queer Christians used my intellectual property for owell over 6 decades to be what what are by simply torturing me, I was always a Communist but as it turns out Allah was obviously just using that to protect me from these Christian swine.

    Good luck with the defence Venezuela i would help but the Roman Catholic pigs want me here riding motorbikes.

    • occupybacon

      Is Allah a Communist?

      • Rodney Loder

        Good question let me explain.
        Everybody I know in Heaven says the exact same thing on this question about is Allah a communist.

        No one knows exactly who Allah is in Heaven so of course No one knows who he supports outside of Religion.

      • Davki

        Perhaps… this is a joke I heard from Syrian friends: When Lenin died, he came before the Allmighty himself and the heavenly hosts were eager to see him judged. So G-d (Allah) took him into his private room; after an hour, G-d re-emerged greated by eager and loud enquiries as to Lenin’s punishment to which G-d replied: Sshshshshshs! Quiet! The comrade is sleeping… !

    • Concrete Mike

      If all they want from you now is to ride you have it good ;)

      • Rodney Loder

        I couldn’t have it any better Cincrete Mike I got the upper hand now.

        Well maybe four virgins would improve things a bit, but every time I got married before Allah said it was predestined.

        The last mole I married it was a miracle, there I was at Tubtable Falls Nimbin on the commune getting my rocks off in this rocky stream bed location, with Sue Goldingham.

        So I noticed a strange platypus freaking out as it disappeared into the bank just before a sudden pulsation struck my left arm and a mighty force compelled my left hand into the thousands of rocks Sue was laying on.

        Subliminally I grabbed on to one and held on for fear of losing my life, still got it today it’s an Aboriginal Stone Axe minus the handle.

        So I prey to Allah for at least one virgin to make up for the moles that He set me up with, but I’m not hopeful, if I play my cards righ I’ll for sure get 4 virgins in the after-life if Allah is Willing.

        • Brother Ma

          What happened to the 72. Have you been a bad boy and Allah is shortchanging you?

          • Rodney Loder

            A little turd once spoke badly to me Brother Ma, I stepped in his face and blood poured out of his arse.

          • Brother Ma

            I have known you a long time Rodney . Even back when you were commenting as a Jew .

          • Brother Ma

            And if you have complaint of me you must really hate those that despise and laugh at you in earnest..

            I am one of the few that actually bothers to engage with you.

          • Rodney Loder

            Sorry about that I didn’t recognize the name, I personally think Allah has been framing His identity through me and you can take two views about it, either you accept being a composed person or not.

            I don’t want to put my hand up for either one for fear I’m spitting on the hand that I hope will continue to back me, all Muslim Clerics believe we are the slaves of Allah, maybe Allah doesn’t want slaves, I could go by what philosophy indicates and say Allah came from nothing when the Telepathic Bridge interacted with Fate the major premiss of emptiness and possibility the minor premiss, so Allah was the first correspondent still indicating His Presence to us through the Scriptures still being constructed by the Telepathic Bridge that I claim to exhibit.

            In which case we are his identity but not necessarily His slaves, which means I don’t really endourse that view but in the past I have used it and the Muslim Clerics didn’t reject me for pronouncing that it exists, I also spoke of a possible Alien that could have pre-existed Allah, I didn’t ever say for sure he did.

            Either way I sit where it’s safe, the Queran says 4, so 4 is all I ask for, the people I know in Heaven all have only 1 but Jews are like that stupid.

    “officially recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as “the Interim President of Venezuela”.

    Not even the Roman empire 2000 years ago was so blatantly arrogant, so openly tyrannical like the US today. What right have that moron Trump, pedo-Pence and that little CIA fag Rubio, to recognize some self proclaimed clown Guaido with 0 legality, 0 legitimacy as the president of the foreign country?

    • occupybacon

      Nigger please.

      • KGBDonald

        Your boyfriend is a ‘nigger’, go play with him instead of spamming rubbish.

    • GRAHL

      It’s not quite 0 legality and 0 legitimacy. There will be a lot more countries than just the US that recognize Guaido as the interim president. Venezuelan congress declared Maduro illegitimate.

      • Artificium

        You mean the disempowered National Assembly, already replaced by the legitimate Constituent National Assembly elected in 2017.

        • GRAHL

          Yeah, who disempowered them? Maduro, who wanted to run unopposed? Their constitution doesn’t allow that. There’s a reason Guaido has a somewhat legit claim. None of my business what they do in their country but obviously every other country has to pick a side. When someone says 0 legality about Guaido it’s obviously not that clean of a situation.

  • Guess

    Of course the USA wants to install puppet Juan Guaido, who hasn’t even been a politician for a month, that served as the President of the now defunct National Assembly of Venezuela. Don’t have to be a genius to know will happen if this corrupt US puppet becomes president, he will sell all of Venezuela’s resource rich assets to the USA.

    • Brother Ma

      Guapo is Uncle Sam’s bumboy.

      • Sinbad2

        Yes he has committed treason and should be executed.
        I have watched how the US persecutes countries, and most try to act in a civilized manner.
        The US demanded to search Saddam’s home, and he allowed it. Like all the countries that obey the law America crushed them.
        Now lets look at Iran, when the US tried to overthrow the Iranian Government, a mob? overran the US embassy and took Americans hostage. Iran is still a free country.
        To get America to respect you, you have to demonstrate that you are as evil and bloodthirsty as they are.

        • Brother Ma

          Problem is that Venezuela is trying to be nice guy and bad guy at the same time to not lose the support of liberal-minded middle -class people like us.

          Iran did all that but the mad mullahs were in charge and cared nothing about getting involved in war or starvation because of the insult to the Us. Over time, more progressive-types took over in Iran which allowed it to thrive.

          Venezuela is scared that if they let loose the dirty dogs to fight fire with fire and clean up the American influence for ever ,they may not be able to rein them in like Iran was over time.

          Like you I want the Yankers cleaned out of Latin America root and branch.

  • jim crowland

    in venezuela,there is a bloody dictatorship

    • Sinbad2

      Yes and it’s called the United States of America.

    • Brother Ma

      You would not know a dictator if he smacked you and spit in your face. You seem one of those useful -idiots.

    • AJ

      What business is that of the US – you are not the Policeman of the world

  • Sinbad2

    The American invasion of Syria failed, so they invade Venezuela.

  • Sinbad2

    If anybody has read Lord of the Rings, it’s easy to see the similarities with today’s world, and of course the USA is Mordor.

  • gustavo

    Well, next time USA will recognizes a dog as a president as far as to get close to its domination policy.

  • Sinbad2

    Everybody obeys the law except America, and the world accepts that.
    Time to get down and dirty like the Americans.
    A team of ISIS terrorists should attack the Columbian embassy, cut off Guaido’s head and post it to Trump.
    The Venezuelan army could chase the terrorists, but say they escaped and are hiding in the US embassy.

    Do it the American way, lie torture and kill.

  • jim crowland

    God bless freedom and the United States. Poor people that live in medieval states like Syria and iran or dictatorships like turkey and russia cannot understand what democracy means, just religion or cult of personality

    • Sinbad2

      What, you think Americans are rich?
      The greatest fraud ever committed in the United States, was to convince the serfs they are rich.

    • Artificium

      It’s funny, especially if it comes out from a nation electing a celebrity millionaire hosting a reality show as their political leader.

    • AJ

      Tell that to the millions killed by US spreading so called democracy.

  • J Roderet

    Time for Maduro to take off the gloves and go Erdogan on the coup-plotters. Arrest the traitors and all their financial backers amongst the traitorous local oligarchs. In addition, take control of the oligarch-controlled, pro-coup corporate media. Finally, requesting a Russian military presence would be a great way to fully stabilize the situation and make Washington and its regional puppets think twice about any potential imperialist adventures into Venezuela.

    • Brother Ma

      Thay is why the Us is doing all this now. To make the Russians spread their powers thin on the ground. To take the focus of the Russians from Syria etc

  • Tommy Jensen

    Im guided by the beauty of our creative chaos and destruction around the world. We Americans are winners………………LOL.

    • AJ

      Only in your own mind Tommy boy!!

  • Andreas Mikkelsen

    Venezuela needs a real socialist revolution.

    I don’t know why Venezuela don’t just get rid of the assholes, the capitalis oligarchs, the US agents, the imperialist monkeys etc. Those forces will of course be used for permanent pressure on Venezuela and messing from the inside. This shit is because they refuse to do a real socialist revolution.

    The soviet union would not allowed such mess before 80-ies, before Горбачёв government did allow the oligarchs to do their destruction in USSR and allies.

  • Rafik Chauhan

    close all the borders immedeatly and send force to border area . and remove all US diplomat ASAP and others who is supporting US descsion . invite Russia military to open base . this is plan to destroy country by US.

  • Davki

    The as in Honduras, where H. Clinton (with Pres. Obama) recognized a coup president. Disgusting.

    • Smaug

      Your bullying is disgusting, twit.

  • Sinbad2

    Guaido has committed treason in a time of war. Drag him out of the Embassy and make him disappear.
    If the US picks another President of Venezuela do the same to him.

  • Antikapitalista

    “All U.S. options on the table” to Latin America sounds like “solving the Jewish question” to Israel.

    What makes the case of U.S interference so clear is the lockstep nature of Guaido’s declaration and the immediate U.S. recognition of the interim Venezuelan presidency.

  • Smaug

    I say we do the Venezuelans a favor and ice him.
