Trump confirms use of US military in Venezuela among ‘options’ on table

Via RT


The option of sending US military to Venezuela is on the table, while talking to President Nicolas Maduro is not, President Donald Trump said in an interview on Sunday.

While talking to CBS’s Face the Nation, Trump would not expand on the prospects of Washington’s military involvement in the crisis in the Latin America country besides replying that “it’s an option.”

He also confirmed that he refused to talk to the country’s president Maduro when he suggested a meeting a few months ago. According to Trump, there is no point in talking to Venezuela’s elected president because  “we’re very far along in the process” and there were “horrible things happening” in the country, such as “poverty”, “anguish” and “crime.”

“You have a young and energetic gentleman but you have other people within that same group that have been very very – if you talk about democracy – it’s really democracy in action,” Trump said.

Washington jumped in with its support of Juan Guaido, the head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly, who declared himself “interim president” almost two weeks ago. While US allies on the continent and in Europe have backed Guaido, Russia, Mexico, Turkey, and a number of other countries urged dialogue and little international involvement in Venezuela’s internal affairs.

Speculation about the US sending troops to deal with the situation in Venezuela peaked after US National Security Advisor John Bolton was photographed holding a yellow legal notebook during a press briefing that said “5,000 troops to Colombia.” The White House would not expand on the matter, while Bogota said it had no clue what it meant and that it would act only “politically and diplomatically” with its neighbor.

“Trump confirms use of US military in Venezuela among ‘options’ on table” …
Are you sure this option is a good one, Mr. Trump? You better think twice before committing a grave, irreparable mistake which will cost you re-election in 2020 for sure.
And you better dismiss those two warhawks which accompany you in the picture: that fat one, pompous ass Pompeo – and the thin one with the white moustache, bandit Bolton. You look like a prisoner, marching between them, where are the shackles?

The chair is what speaks, not the individual. Notice Samantha Powers and Nikki Haley sounded identical? The face is easy to hate, not so easy to hate who controls the chair though since you can’t see the real power behind that chair. Dismissal will just bring forth another face to hate.

I agree.
Petraeus was just as nasty as Pompeo in his function as CIA director, the predecessors of Bolton were bad too. And yet, I am allergic against Pompeo and Bolton. So I just HAD TO write the above comment.
I doubt that there is any “kind” CIA director. They are all nasty individuals. The CIA should be closed down.

PRESS TV:

The Venezuelan Government seized a large shipment of weapons from the USA on board of a cargo plane that had taken off from Miami, Florida.

Representatives from the Venezuelan National Guard and the National Integrated Service of Customs and Tax Administration (SENIAT) found the weapons aboard a plane that had landed at the Arturo Michelena International Airport in the city of Valencia on February 3.

The official Twitter account of the Venezuela Public Safety Bureau posted pictures of the weapons bust on Wednesday, which included 19 rifles, 118 ammunition clips, high-caliber ammo and 90 communication devices.
