Russia moves to prevent regime change in Venezuela (Video)

The United States has again put both Venezuela and Russia on notice, after days ago two military planes carrying a contingency of about 100 Russian troops led by a high ranking officer touched down in Caracas. National Security Adviser John Bolton warned that foreign military “meddling” in Latin America would not be tolerated, while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Russia to “cease its unconstructive behavior”.

“The United States will not tolerate hostile foreign military powers meddling with the Western Hemisphere’s shared goals of democracy, security, and the rule of law. The Venezuelan military must stand with the people of Venezuela,” the national security adviser wrote on Monday. Venezuela quickly lashed back, accusing the US of causing the impoverished nation’s third mass electricity outage in less than a month on Monday.

Monday’s outage affected a little over half the nation, including parts of Caracas. Shortly after most of the country’s electricity was restored, Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez made a televised statement saying the “fascist right” and their American “imperial masters” had attacked key transmission lines, impacting about 57% of Venezuela.

Rodriquez called out Pompeo, Bolton, as well as Republican Senator Marco Rubio specifically for orchestrating attacks on the Maduro government to cause a coup. He dubbed them “the trio of misfortune, perversity and criminality”.

Maduro’s vice president questioned, “What was the objective of this new attack? It was to deprive Venezuela’s people of electricity as happened so terribly just two weeks ago.”

In response to the earlier outages, Venezuela’s Defense Ministry vowed to deploy armed forces to protect the national electricity system.

President Nicolás Maduro had previously blamed Washington for the earlier outages, claiming over Twitter that the Trump administration was engaged in an “electrical war” which was “announced and directed by American imperialism against our people.”

Rodriguez further told state television this week that the opposition was responsible for the mass outage, claiming it “wants to plunge the population into profound unease”.

Meanwhile US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido shot back on Twitter, saying that Maduro “uses these moments to disinform and create anxiety”.

Likely as Washington continues to eye Caracas for regime change and destabilizing coup efforts, Russia could be drawn into further on the ground military cooperation, setting the stage for the next potential US-Russia proxy war, similar to the past few years of war in Syria.

Well, thank goodness that no other country in the world hosts American missiles, aircraft, other weapons or military personnel.

This is the “Cuban Missile Crisis” all over again … Venezuela is Cuba, the Russians are introducing missiles, the WH is probing for some sort of opportunity to land a punch, the missile issues in Europe (around Russia), the success in Syria stinging the USians, and on and on. Venezuela is but one example where the economic imperialists stand to lose their influence to another “socialist” government. Of course, the parallels (or sine waves) are not exact but there are enough similarities to invoke Santayana. On the margin is the US Senator who’s stirring up trouble in neighbouring Columbia, which… Read more »

Trump is no Kennedy. Don’t expect him to withdraw any ABMs from Europe, even on the sly. Just the opposite in fact. Egos can be fragile, especially for egomaniacs. The more maniacal they are, the easier they pop. Expect a big pop.

I can’t understand it. I offered to send Venezuela toothbrushes if Maduro left for Haiti but they just turned me down flat. I even offered to send Russia more Bush legs if they left the Orinoco Tarsands to us but that arrogant Lavrov just said ‘we export chicken now, no chlorine or asphalt either’. I offered to give them a good deal on grain if they just stopped sending gas to Europe through Germany and sent it thorough Ukraine instead because the Europeans are too dependent on Russian gas but Lavrov just laughed, then laughed again, then scratched his head.… Read more »

Ladies and Gentlemen, I hereby present you with a comprehensive 1) micro and 2) macro analysis of the American Condition, in a nutshell (double entendre intended):

There is one factor that comes into play here too: in Venezuela almost nothing works because monies are stolen. This is nothing new, it has been going on since I was born some 79 years ago. The overall corruption is scary and very damaging too. Those not living in Venezuela, for the most part, are not aware of this fact. As family in Caracas just told me: se roban todo. They steal everything.

I have to agree but most of alla I cannot see why with all the oil money they had in the past, why did they not improve their infrastructure ?
As for corruption, Venezuela is not unique in that but may I say that I met a Venezuelan banker in Monaco that was a wanted man in the nineties because he had stolen with some oil big shot several billions from the coffers of the oil company. Truth is, the “Monroe Doctrine” is still the bible as far as Latin America is concerned. And that is not right.

I just hope that the Russians don’t bottle out this time, like they did in Cuba. Or they will be America’s bitch for more decades to come.

No, the Russians wonn’t “bottle out”. President Putin is not Krushchev. The Russians just opened a pilot training center in Venezuela and sent more military trainers there.
