"On the eve of another US war for oil, Abby Martin debunks the most repeated myths about Venezuela and uncovers how US sanctions are crimes against humanity with UN investigator and human rights Rapporteur Alfred De Zayas."



One of the biggest problems in this country is the destruction of honest truth-seeking journalism. While, newspaper sales are going down, journalists are pushed more towards the internet. An internet where most "journalists" favor click-bait articles, or re-hashed badly researched stories.

Now we have this full effect on Venezuela where it is very rare to find honest reporting.

Trump is supposed to be an "isolationist", yet he is following in the footsteps of a long history of intervention in Latin America. In my opinion, Trump is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Presenting himself as a rebel wolf, while silently following the same pattern of foreign policy like a herded sheep.

I think Trump really hates socialists.

Can't blame him.

Still don't want to go to war in VZ. I say if you want to vote for socialism and communism then you will starve for it. Their problem, not ours.

The issues are deeper than socialism creating all the issues. "Can't blame him". Ahh so Trump gets a free pass because "socialism"?

Saying Trump hates socialists, is like saying Bush hated terrorists... More simpleton excuses given to the public to intervene in a complex situation.

It's never the corrupt socialists who are at fault.

It's gotta be everyone else.

No one was talking about intervention until people were able to get word out about starvation. Socialists call that propaganda, but if history is any kind of guide, then the truth is people are starving and the socialists caused it. Again.

So you need to watch a "video" to know what's going on in Venezuela?, maybe better to dig up the fact that Venezuela has been trough several corrupt "presidentes" and then socialism stepped in with Hugo Chavez and then his minion Maduro, and now the money of 'others' is gone and no mas "dinero" so people have no work, no food.

When the US is involved, it rarely is. Why don't they just let other nations do what they want? Everything was running smoothly in Venezuela until oil started flowing money back into the nation. Why isn't Trump after Bolivia?

I think my prediction about the situation down south is coming true. I was spot on.

Speaking of this topic, has anyone else seen the latest video advertisements embedded within YouTube videos when watched with the Amazon Fire TV stick? The ad is actually done quite well, providing a compelling case of of the transition and causes of the turmoil in Venezuela, due to the transition to socialism. All spoke about by a woman that lived and grew up during that time, and experienced the changeover.

TL;DR.

OPEC nations are slowly falling over. Either being toppled, told to obey, or invaded and turned into rubble.

Current US agenda is take down Venezuela, because it wanted to nationalize oil sale more. Trump splits nation, by waging war on media, and pointing out crazy leftys who have always been there just no - one cared, boost nationalism in it's wake. Wall isn't to keep illegals out, it's to stop influx of refugees from a conflict about to happen down south. There is no longer an ocean to stop people from the nation they are about to turn into hell, so what's the next best thing?

Our sanctions (for them not revolting against the elected president) is stopping billions in revenue a day.

Our aid is a few million a day.

It's their problem, but we have helped inflame it.

It's always the US' fault that a socialist nation that attempted to centrally control all production collapsed.

Again, we left well enough alone until people started starving.

Socialism is a failure and it doesn't need the US to be so.

Absolutely, instead of the world coming together and helping a country in dire straits the US and its predatory allies in and of the deep state are taking advantage of the situation for political and financial reasons. So much for Trump not being of the deep state.

Now we may know why all of a sudden the Mueller probe is coming to an end

The neocon deep state is ready to start another war, OR WORSE

A lot of bad stuff is going on. It’s not reported much here but India and Pakistan are on the verge of a war. Putin just threatened another Cuban missile crises. Trump has left the nuclear treaty with Russia

BAD NEWS ALL OVER

So why did the US slap massive sanctions on them when they needed not aid, but just to be allowed to enter the free market?

Forgot to add. Under Chavez they weren't starving. You're talking about a situation you don't understand beyond "SOCIALISM BAD".

Trump knows some of his supporters are stupid so he has taken the advantage of that for political gain for pretending to be anti war as Obama pretended.
