So,

Looks like a potential Military coup in Venezuela, not being covered on alot of MSM,

previous discussions about Venezuela and military Coup have been discussed HERE and HERE on ATS

Video showing attack on Venezuela's Supreme Court


Video of the pilot (translation below, from Reddit)




Venezuelans, dear brothers: we speak on behalf of the State We are a coalition of military, police, and civilians In the search of balance and opposing this transitional criminal government We are not and do not have any political tendency We are patriots, nationalists, and institutionalists

This battle is not against the rest of the State security forces It is against the impunity imposed by this government It is against tyranny It is against the deaths of the youths that fight for their legitimate right It is against hunger and lack of healthcare It is against fanatism

This fight is for life, this fight is for the hope we build It is not vengeance but justice and our conscious that drives us to make the change We make this distinction with the color of truth and of Jesus Christ, who is with us This is the reason we make a call to all Venezuelans, from east to west, from north to south, to accompany us in this force of fight, and go out to the streets in Caracas And in the interior of the country, to each military base So that que can see ourselves as brothers once again.

So that we may reunite as brothers with our national armed forces. And together, we retake our beautiful Venezuela. In this day, we are making an aerial and land deployment with the sole purpose of giving back democratic power to the people. And in this, comply and enforce the laws to reestablish the constitutional order. It's because of this that we adhere to Articles 305 and 333 of our Magna Carta.

It is our duties as state security officials to we disarm this gang of thugs to restore peace to the people of Bolivar. President Maduro, we demand your immediate resignation along with all your ministers and that general elections be called immediately. Brother in arms, we have two choices: to be judged tomorrow by our consciousness and the people, or to free the people from this corrupt government. We are warriors of god and our mission is to serve the people. Long Live Venezuela!


Can anyone provide any other updates??

There is speculation this was a false flag by Maduro in order to force through his constitutional changes while justifying a further crackdown on the opposition. 1 police helicopter "shooting" at the supreme court building is not a coup, let alone useful for the opposition.

Twitter shows this:

Police under attack?

Soldiers with armored vehicles have been deployed near Venezuela's presidential palace

Video reportedly involving Venezuelan congress and some kind of scuffle/fight

thoughts on the pilots statement??



Whatever is coming out of Venezula in the next several hours will be dragged through a quagmire of chaos and confusion. Take everything you read with some salt.

Currently Russia as they gave a loan of a few billion dollars to Maduro because Venezuela is out of money.

Even those who supported Chavez are turning on Maduro. His sole intention is to retain power, regardless of how bad it gets for the citizens.

The only way Maduro leaves office is either 1 - on his own accord or 2 - helped along into retirement by the military.

My guess is door number 2.

When little countries go down, there's always a bigger one pulling the strings somewhere......

Normally I would agree but after seeing what Chavez and Maduro have done to the country its plausible this one is solely self inflicted. Their socialism failed spectacularly and instead of admitting that they continued to seize property / businesses / merchandise to give to those who are struggling on top of constantly increasing their wages to try and counter the rampant inflation.

Those 2 idiots can be used as an example in college level courses for how to destroy an economy and country in 2 easy presidents.

Coup or false flag, this would be a technical terrorist attack, and should be deemed as such.

So terrorists attacked a National Institution. I suppose this is what happens when they sit on an abundance of resource wealth, and yet completely destroy their economy from pis poor bag management and negligence.
