“They used high-tech weapons extremists from the opposition are the authors and perpetrators of these attacks against the country, and they used high-tech technologies that only the US government has in the world. These attacks were carried out with the use of high scientific achievements, there were electromagnetic attacks against national electric lines”, Maduro said.


Venezuelan Energy Facility Suffered Cyber Attack



On Saturday Maduro said that 70 percent of the power had been restored, but around noon another attack destroyed all the progress that had been made.

Was the Venezuelan blackout caused by a cyber attack or even an EMP, is the attack still underway? Did the US, MIC or Deep State cause the blackout or was it the opposition.

Would they keep the people without electricity until they revolt and overthrow Maduro?

I think it is possible. I also think it could just be the disrepair of the Venezuelan electric system due to the state of the country.

Anyone have any hard facts about what is going on down there?

Socialist President Nicolas Maduro – who is facing a challenge to his rule by the leader of the opposition-led congress, Juan Guaido – has blamed the blackout on an act of “sabotage” by the United States at the Guri hydroelectric dam, but experts say it is the outcome of years of underinvestment.

Under attack, or just another part of Venezuela that is falling apart? Given the country has lost any form of cohesion, it is more likely a combination of under investment and underpaid/unpaid employees.

Oh, hang on... Yes, that's it. It's those Americans who did it. It's true, I saw it on YouTube.

Everything you say is true, but there is enough historic precedent not to rule it out.

The first one that comes to mind is the Bay of Pigs


The United States sought the elimination of Castro for his brutal displays of power and insistence on communism. Castro's political apparatus within Cuba became a serious threat to the sanctimony of capitalism and was a threat so close to the United States in the Western Hemisphere the U.S. deemed necessary to remove.

If it was EMP technology then they wouldn't have ever been able to fix it so quick. It would be fried and unless the had unaffected transformers around it would stay that way until replacements could be bought. It would be pointless to fix if that EMP tech could just be used again. idk it seems like perfect timing or the leader planned it to blame the U.S.

It is possible to knock out power using emp without burning all the circuits.

It is also being reported that protesters against the government burned down the aid trucks.

There is video.

I am sure it wasn't a conventional EMP caused by a nuclear blast. I am not up to speed on all the secret EMP devices out there, but you are probable right about it not being an EMP.

I remember we used some kind of fiber to take out the power in Iraqi, but that would leave evidence.

Like you say the US makes a good scapegoat for Maduro. It is a lot better for him to say the US took the power out again instead of having to say he can't get the power fixed.

Thanks UncleTomahawk, there sure is. Again it is hard to know what is the truth these days even when you have video.

Look up the u.s. connection to the 2002 coup in Venezuela. There's reason why the leader doesn't trust the u.s.

However, it's definitely possible that he's freaking out and blaming the u.s.

I definitely believe it.

No doubt we (the US) have an inside man..
.or his conservative political opponent does..

And they sabatoged the power grid to cause civil unrest and opposition to leadership.

It's gonna be real funny when Bernie wins the presidency and does a 180 on this

Venezuela has been on the U.S. and Globalist's radar for a long time now.

This is what you’re thinking of the BLU/114 Sub munition containing graphite/carbon fibers designed to short high voltage power lines and substations. There would be obvious evidence of this type of attack. There are also non nuclear emp weapons developed but the likelyhood of their use is very low.

As we don't know well how much the power structure on Venezuela is based on online computers and networks, assuming it had to be something like an EMP instead of a cyber attack that completely takes down the networks and prevents them to take control for several hours could be a bit naive.

I don't believe it had anything to do with EMP attacks but mostly normal internet hacking into those machines and taking it down from there, then preventing them from gaining access from their locations to recover and bring power back

That seems like the most likely way to go around this, for me at least

Venez gov "we starved our people, squandered the wealth of the nation, killed detractors whole sale, raided entire communities, fired on our own people, took away all their rights and means to defend and provide for themselves, forcing them to eat zoo animals to survive and rummage trash cans"

Maduro " damn you America for sewing seeds of rebellion!"......

Was merely pointing out the physical military attack side as mentioned by the user I was replying to I do not rule out any form of cyber attack or internal sabotage.

/sarc indeed



we starved our people

The US sanctions were/are meant to do this, and they have worked perfectly so far



squandered the wealth of the nation

Yes, as the US does equally with the F-35 and other failed projects that suck so much money out of the budget that it is ridiculous trying to bring it up as an argument here

Also. Since due to sanctions they can't sell/buy most of the stuff they need, they have to spend whatever money they had in savings, therefore "squandering the wealth of the nation". This was by US design as well



killed detractors whole sale

So does the US in every country they can, unless the government of that country surrenders to the US wishes, was there a point to make here?



fired on our own people

This is so vague that i could also say the US has killed its own citizens several times, in order to gain more power. Prove me wrong, or prove yourself right. Just don't go around talking without references because "we all know it to be true"



took away all their rights and means to defend and provide for themselves

Again, US sanctions were designed for this and they worked, and part of the design is to blame other people

Honestly, if you can't see the truth, even presented on your face day by day, i don't know what to think of you...

And here i thought Trump was supposed to NOT do the same thing as Obama, who declared Venezuela a national security threat somehow, back in 2015

Do you remember what was the threat?

Yes I apologize, never meant to sound as if i was attacking you. I had read a few other posts about this and somehow what i meant to say to them came out on my reply to you

Originally i only meant to add to your post and say that we should not leave out conventional hacking methods before jumping to the extreme

Typical "it's. Cool to blame America" response, while ignoring the aggregious things the gov did to its own people, and the policies that made it tbis way.....

Blame the US all you want, but historical facts betray your theory, because every single time this type of gov exists, this is the outcome.....

Thats not America's fault...

I believe Maduro is behind the power outages.

it makes good propganda and causes the people on the fence to drift his way.

I never ignored it, but ask yourself why it is the work of 'America' to go fix it when it did not harm any American citizen at all

Why it that even questionable? The fact is that the US has done way lots of things while trying to bring down that country, with no reason at all. They were good before, they are not good now, since the US started pushing them down. Facts and history from the past years tells it all, let's not pretend anymore

Not even the top gov level is bothering to fake it at this point

Oh don't get me wrong, i don't hate the US, or anything like that, however let's call it for what it is. And in several way it is "America's fault"

Nobody asked them to bring up sanctions because Venezuela did not want to become another ally of the US, that's the beginning of it all.

Either with us or against us, right? That's how the mob works

So stop pretending it is not just about that, let's stop faking the "poor people on Venezuela" excuse when we are killing them with sanctions so they have no other choice but to bring up revolution, and the only way to freedom is to surrender to the US. What is this?

The mafia uses a similar approach, they go visit a business and tell the owner, you have to share your earnings. Your not obliged to do so by the way, we're all friends here. But, if you don't, it would be sad if something happens to you, or your family or your business burns out one day, or nobody buys from you from now own, so let's be good brothers and share, yeh?
