Venezuela’s Army Deploys Reinforcements Near Colombian Border In Fears Of US Intervention

Donate

On January 27th, the Venezuelan military began moving heavy artillery systems, main battle tanks and military equipment towards the border with Colombia, according to footage posted by residents of Eastern Venezuela.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro also posted a video on Twitter speaking to soldiers, saying that the army is prepared to defend the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

This is a sign that the Venezuelan Government, still officially headed by Maduro, is fearing a potential US invasion through Colombia.

Venezuela’s top commanders have pledged loyalty to Maduro’s government in the days since National Assembly President Juan Guaido declared himself interim president with the aim of calling new elections to legitimize the power in the event of success.

Guaido’s recent Twitter activity and speeches in media have all focused on a specific amnesty law that wishes to release many “unjustly” imprisoned. On January 27th, on Twitter he gave 3 conditions that needed to be fulfilled.

The conditions are as follows:

1. Call an emergency meeting of all NGOs, advocates of Human Rights and National Assembly MPs to unify the information and raise the international complaint.

2. Announce the names of those responsible for the FAES, prosecutors and judges who have been in this “massacre” from January 22 onwards to request immediate sanctions and justice to the international community.

3. Formally request the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the UN, Michelle Bachelet to hasten her visit to our country, to be an eyewitness to the serious crisis in which the entire Venezuelan people live.

He is essentially organizing a sort of political witch hunt through the protests to eliminate all possible opposition he may have if Maduro and the current Venezuelan government are ousted out.

Defence Blog cited an anonymous source in Caracas who claimed that Maduro feared that the US troops being withdrawn from Syria and Afghanistan would be well-suited for redeployment in a Colombia-based conflict with Venezuela.

Sputnik cited a Colombian Defense Ministry spokesperson who said that the country would not provide the US with military bases for a possibly military intervention in Venezuela.

“No,” the spokesperson said. “The troops will remain at bases, there has been and there is going to be no redeployment of troops,” the Colombian Defense Ministry said on late January 25th. “Colombia is not staging provocations and will not allow anyone to provoke it, as Defense Minister [Guillermo] Botero has said, and we are conducting such policy toward Venezuela,” the ministry added.

On its part, the US continues its harsh rhetoric towards Venezuela.

On January 25th, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that Elliot Abrams is the new special envoy for Venezuela.

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton also reinforced the US stance warning against any and all violence against US diplomats or self-proclaimed Interim President Juan Guaido or the National Assembly. He also said that Cuba’s support for Maduro is also well known.

EU countries also gave Nicolas Maduro an 8-day ultimatum to organize “free and transparent elections” otherwise Juan Guaido would be recognized as official president. The statement was made by Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on January 26th.

French President Emmanuel Macro also repeated the Spanish ultimatum.

“Unless elections are announced within eight days, we will be ready to recognise @jguaido as ‘President in charge’ of Venezuela in order to trigger a political process.”

A spokesperson of the German government issued a similar statement.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said that Guaido is “the right person to take Venezuela forward”.

“Time for a new start for the suffering ppl (people) of Venezuela,” Hunt said on January 26th.

EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini also called for fresh elections.

“In the absence of an announcement on the organisation of fresh elections with the necessary guarantees over the next days, the EU will take further actions, including on the issue of recognition of the country’s leadership,” Mogherini said.

Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza responded to the EU’s ultimatum by condemning it strongly.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) on January 26th voted to discuss the situation in Venezuela at the request of the US despite opposition from Russia and China.

    So 80% of UN members, including Mexico, don’t support yet another criminal Jew world order regime change operation. If this holds up, it could be the beginning of the end of the post WW2 Jew world order hegemony project.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Having the UN in Jew York is the worst crime against humanity.

  • Prince Teutonic

    There will be no U.S. military intervention in Venezuela. They work in different mode through proxies as in Syria. They will probably try to arm and train “moderate opposition”…

    • Zionism = EVIL

      100% guaranteed, they will use the 1980’s terror blueprint the CIA used by arming the Contra right-wing headchoppers with drug money against the popular Sandanista revolutionaries in Nicaragua. The Saudi and Emirati pimps will be asked to pay for it. The Zionist scum have already landed a 200 man advance terror team in Brazil under the guise of mine flood relief.

      • You can call me Al

        I think you are correct, but they lost in both Nicaragua and Cuba using that method. I hope they also lose again.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          It will all depend on the Venezuelan military. The Castro Brothers had mass public support and so the Ortega Brothers and Sandinista front in Nicaragua. The population in Venezuela has historically been corrupted like Arab countries and CIA has deep penetration of the society and business sectors. Also the Colombian pimps are a base for US destabilization and CIA has run narco terrorists out of Colombia for over 50 years..

          • You can call me Al

            Good point.

      • Pave Way IV

        I’m not so sure about that, ZE. Big ‘rally’ or whatever scheduled for this Wednesday by Guaido. Psychopaths stick with what works – false flags. I’m guessing (((Eliot Abrams))) already has U.S. and Israeli snipers flooding into Venezuela right now. The MSM already has the Venezuelan Army massacres peaceful protesters! reports written up. I’m sure the CIA also has plenty of well-armed rebel sleeper cells all over Venezuela by now.

        Trump and madman Bolton are Jew pimps and will do whatever the Bilderberg Jews and Zionists tell them. The pathetic parasite Nutter Yahoo has already sent a 200 man MOSSAD team to organ harvest Brazil. The shithead Nutter Yahoo was on TV acting as if the Zionist cancer is a some sort of a superpower and blabbing about recognizing the CIA pimp Guaido as the “president”.

      • BMWA1

        Well, El Trumpo doesn’t really ‘know” (ou gnosis seauton) anything…but the Columbia govt. announced at least that it would not host US forces (this does not exclude proxies). I suspect the lip service of Columbia as well as Brazil (although compliant with US on surface) is thin in reality. My sense is that the coup attempt has lost momentum. Army is with the REAL president, and part of opposition is also on side with govt. when it comes to the not so subtle approach of Pence, Pompeo et al.

        • jako

          “El Trumpo” :-))))))))))))

          Big deal…
          Do you really believe everything Colombian PUPPET govt. is saying?!
          Do they have ANY saying on what is US going to do?!
          I don’t think so!
          US doesn’t have to send many special ops to start some trouble despite “Columbia govt. announcement”
          Starting NATO war there for US interest only, would be ideal scenario for US military industrial complex, oil , gold seeking corporations and war hawks in Washington also.
          True El Dorado of Venezuelan gold & oil for every greedy son of bitch in Washington is hard to resist.

          Sorry I am not convinced war intervention to be impossible
          I love “El Trumpo” though !

          So that US can use that fact to start war between 2 countries.
          And force other NATO countries
          to get involved in invasion of Venezuela and therefore reduce US expenses while expecting to get the biggest part of gold & oil pie from Venezuela.

    Venezuela are in possession of WMD from Cuba who got them from N. Korea, the axis of evils. Maduro the Maniac is ready to fire them on American cities. We can off course not allow him nor any socialist country to do that.
    Therefore the United States and its Allies have appointed Torture Haspel, Mad Dog Mattis and Elliott Talmud Death Squads Abrahams and Zealot Usury Mnuchin to lead US defences against foreign aggression against America.
    This is why Maduro move its rusty military around in his country. Because Trump intend to make America great again, and Venezuela and Maduro FEAR America.
    Maduro and his sh.thole country are afraid that we Americans are ready to defend ourselves.

    This is a great folks. Venezuela and everybody in the world FEAR America. MAGA!!

      Whether it’s my age, but it seems that Juan Guaidó ( or Gido as ‘Hola Pence pronounced it ) does have the ‘clone look’ of US preferred Democratic Dictators as those you allude to, Al.

      I would go further than that and suggest that many such clones are noe being utilised in the media and modern drama in order to promote the Neo-Liberal ( Marxist) ideology and the way that we should all think.

      • jako

        Agree with “clones being utilized in the media”
        Global technocrats use all science from

        And they pay attention on every detail

        • FlorianGeyer

          I force myself to look at and listen to the Libtarded news outlets and even a few drama productions.

          I find all of them rather vapid as they push the Marxist ‘agenda ‘ of thought control and suppression of independent opinions.

          I suppose its natural for the Deep state movie directors to use a preferred casting image that suits their agenda. Therefore all the ‘actors’ will tend to look the same. Even Poroshenko was the most photogenic of the Ukranian faces within the coup.

          It is easy to think that all could be LGBT’s as well.

  • John Whitehot

    “still officially headed by Maduro”

    lolololol.

    It will remains so, have no doubt.

    • FlorianGeyer

      I agree, but I expect the US to continually throw gasolene on the ‘fire’ that Maduro and his supporters are trying to extinguish.

      • John Whitehot

        little doubt on that either.

        But the underlaying conditions are in favor of the people and the state of Venezuela:

        – The military is undivided and backs the government.
        – Most people supports the government too, although western MsM have excluded the majority from all discussions and chose to speak only about “democratic protesters” instead
        – Surrounding countries governments may have spent few words on the matter, but they will never intervene directly and openly as it would probably cause the end (from inside) for some of those governments, and in any case they lack the force to do anything more than a mess.

        To add to the above:
        Bolsonero was not even seated in office when Boeing acquired Embraer – the most valuable Brazilian company. They’ll soon rename the Embraer jets to Boeing, take everything and then close it down (or force it to produce parts for Boeing planes).

        Brazilians will then understand the difference between corrupt people in a given system and an entirely corrupt system.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Craig Murray on his blog commented that the photo of large demonstration of US democracy lovers were all well dressed, soft handed and well fed, whilst many in Venezuela in poor areas are struggling to buy food. This is mainly due to deliberate US sanctions in order to throttle the economy.

          I am sure that the Maduro power base and army will be looking closely at any clandestine imports of US weapons to arm the criminal gangs. Syria is a good example of how the US works.

          • John Whitehot

            in every comment on venezuela, it should also be said that :

            Maduro won the elections and all international inspectors confirmed their validity.

    The US trying to invade Venezuela via Colombia with proxies could backfire big time on Washington’s Colombian puppets, considering that the ELN is still actively resisting the Colombian regime. Russia and Venezuela could then respond by funding and arming the ELN. Another classic case of the US not thinking through the consequences of its actions… just like in Iraq they thought that taking Baghdad would be the end of the war. Yet it was, in reality, only the beginning.
