A strong statement by Russia in opposition to US led war on Venezuela.

Sergey Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister was speaking with his Bolivian counterpart when the issue of Venezuela arose. Bolivia is one of Venezuela’s closest regional allies along with Cuba.

Sergey Lavrov responded to threats made by Donald Trump against Caracas when the US President threatened the use of military action against the oil rich South American country. Venezuela has called Trump’s threats “crazy” and a threat to the sovereignty of the country.

Today, Lavrov stated,

“We are united in the need to overcome the existing disagreements in the country by peaceful means through a nationwide dialogue as soon as possible, without any external pressure, not to mention the unacceptability of the threats of military intervention in the internal affairs of this count”.

Recently Mercosur, a bloc of nations covering the majority of South America condemned any attempts by the US to stage a war against Venezuela. This included countries who themselves have disagreements with Caracas. Today, Lavrov cited this as an example of widespread opposition to any war on Venezuela.

Unless Venezuela is armed and ready it will be attacked by the US. They all know the tactics.
I can just hear “All those beautiful starving babies in Venezuela: we had to to something and bomb Caracas to liberate them (send them to baby heaven).

The US is desperate for a military victory anywhere. The US is being further exposed in her support for world terrorism and even the dumbest of Americans must be thinking about that .
The US needs a war against a weak victim to unite America under the flag of
‘ Support your Military at War’.

The US will not invade Venezuela, Americans are stupid, but not that stupid, that will be suicidal. America is collapsing internally and it cannot afford enemies in their backyard. What we are witnessing is the gradual collapse of the America as the superpower it used to be, a new world order is now in process and it is just inevitable and either America adapts or it will implode from within!!!!
