Crisis In Venezuela: Is The US Drumpf Administration Really About To Invade Venezuela?

I am wanting to turn away from the fraud "shooting" reports that have filled both the Jew spew media lying shit that we have been witnessing since last Friday, and focus on other news... The situation in Venezuela in particular..... There has indeed been a "lull before the storm" happening right now in that peaceful nation as apparently the criminal US Drumpf Administration along with the warhawks in the Pentagram aka Pentagon are now preparing their next "move" to get their long sought "regime change" in place in Caracas....

I came across the following important report that comes from Ron Paul Institute website, at www.ronpaulinstitute.org that asks the very important question as to whether or not the criminal Drumpf Administration in Washington DC in the formerly free nation called the United States of America, is indeed about to invade Venezuela to get their "regime change" in place....Here in fact is that article for everyone to see for themselves right here, and I do have my own thoughts and comments to follow:

Is Trump Really About to Attack Venezuela?

undefined

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the last of the US diplomats out of Venezuela, saying their presence was a “constraint” on US policy toward the country. The wording seemed intended to convey the idea that the US is about to launch military action to place a Washington-backed, self-appointed politician to the presidency. Was it just bluster, designed to intimidate? Or is the Trump Administration really about to invade another country that has neither attacked nor threatened the United States?

While US Administrations engaged in “regime change” have generally tried to mask their real intentions, this US-backed coup is remarkable for how honest its backers are being. Not long ago the National Security Advisor to the president, John Bolton, openly admitted that getting US companies in control of Venezuelan oil was the Administration’s intent. Trump Administration officials have gone so far as mocking the suffering of Venezuelans when a suspiciously-timed nationwide power failure heightened citizens’ misery.

According to media reports, Vice President Mike Pence is angry with the Venezuela coup leader, Juan Guaido, because he promised the whole operation would be a cake walk – just like the neocons promised us about Iraq. Guaido said hundreds of thousands of protesters would follow him to the Colombian border to “liberate” US aid trucks just over the border, but no one showed up. So Pompeo and the neocons made up a lie that Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro’s thugs burned the aid trucks to prevent the people from getting relief from their suffering. Even the pro-war New York Times finally admitted that the Administration was lying: it was opposition protesters who burned the trucks.

Was the US behind the take-down of Venezuela’s power grid? It would not be the first time the CIA pulled such a move, and US officials are open about the US goal of making life as miserable as possible for average Venezuelans in hopes that they overthrow their government.

Congress has to this point been strongly in favor of President Trump’s “regime change” policy for Venezuela. Sadly, even though our neocon foreign policy of interventionism has proven disastrous – from Iraq to Libya to Syria and elsewhere – both parties in Congress continue to act as if somehow this time they will get it right. I have news for them, they won’t.

Even weak Congressional efforts to remind the president that Congress must approve military action overseas sound like war cries. In Rep. David N. Cicilline’s (D-RI) statement introducing his “Prohibiting Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela Act” last week, he sounded more hawkish than John Bolton or Elliott Abrams! The statement makes all the arguments in favor of a US military attack on Venezuela and then – wink wink – reminds the president he needs authorization beforehand. As if that’s going to be a hard sell!

So is President Trump about to attack Venezuela? At a recent US House hearing, one of the expert witnesses testified that such an invasion would require between 100,000 and 150,000 US troops, going up against maybe three times that number of Venezuelan troops in a country twice the size of Iraq. With a lot of jungle. All for a “prize” that has nothing to do with US security. If the president makes such a foolish move he might find the current war cheerleaders in the Democrat Party changing their tune rather quickly. Let’s hope Trump changes his tune and returns to his promises of no more regime change wars.

NTS Notes:  Honestly, the US is not prepared for at least the time being for a full fledged invasion of Venezuela.... There are not enough forces in place anywhere near that peaceful nation to launch a full force invasion of the nation and there seems to be no further movement of forces for the time being to facilitate such action...

I would suspect that the US is bound and determined now to try to overthrow the Nicolas Maduro government by clandestine means, while still trying to prop up that heinous fool "Random" Guaido and to try to sell via their liars in the Jew spew media propaganda to the Venezuelan people that "Guaido" is somehow a 'better choice' as leader for their nation...

And of course the US will continue with their brazen attacks on Venezuela's infrastructure, and will continue to try to suffocate Venezuela economically by seizing Venezuela's foreign assets... They will also continue to try to "sue" Venezuela for their rightful nationalization of their Petroleum companies over a decade ago in a vain attempt to claim that Venezuela owes BILLIONS to companies that lost their assets in Venezuela...... If all else fails, they will also try a full "embargo" of Venezuela's petroleum in the hope that it will force other nations to purchase their oil elsewhere.... These actions may not work for the fact that Venezuela does sell a LOT of crude oil to China, and the Chinese are apparently not wanting to stop their deals with Venezuela any time soon...

It should be obvious that the US's present course of action against Venezuela is to continue their illegal sanctions against the nation to try to get the Venezuelan people to turn against Maduro due to lack of materials and food supplies.... But from what we have seen in videos and reports, this option has been failing thanks to Russian and Chinese aid that continues to flow into the embattled nation....

The bottom line is this... The US is presently not ready to invade Venezuela and has made no contingency plans for the time being for such an attack.... That could change rapidly if the US is able to cause a 'civil war' in that nation due to their present course of actions, and the liars in the Drumpf administration could indeed eventually attack Venezuela under the lying pretext of wanting to restore "law" to the nation or for their fraud of "humanitarian aid"....

More to come
