You just lap that sh!t up like kool-aid don't ya?



For crying out loud.

Here is one source.

Pompeo: Maduro set to leave for Cuba until dissuaded by Russia

I have seen and experienced first hand how socialists/communist dictators LIE meanwhile the opposite of what they claim is most often what is really happening.

If it had been a "small coup" they wouldn't have had the need to completely shutdown Twitter/social media...

There is no reason for Pompeo to lie. There is every reason for Maduro to lie as he always does.

Maduro is losing support and power and he knows it. But he has to try to dissuade Venezuelans from joining the "coup." I am not the one "laping that sh!t up like kool-aid..." Do you like to believe socialist dictators who shut down all independent media that is not state controlled, and suppress the people by any means necessary?

I would hope that in the event of an attempted coup, Trump would have an escape plan too.

But that's not even what I found most entertaining about your post, this was...



He does not have the support, or the respect from most of the Venezuelan forces.


And what's funny is you pulled that straight from Guido's mouth and believe it like gospel.

I always thought that the one thing you getoffmylawnists hate more than a socialist/communist is a globalist... yet here we are.

Keep defending socialist dictators... it shows the "socialism" people like you want...

We might never know for certain how many Venezuelans have been murdered directly by the government of Maduro and Chavez because such figures are hidden within the amount of murders that have increased during the reign of both dictators.

In 1999 when Chavez took power there were 4,555 homicides in Venezuela, and by 2009 there were 16,047 homicides according to the OVV.

Venezuela murder-rate quadrupled under Chavez: NGO
Out of these there were 5,535 cases whose victims were categorized as being killed for resisting authority. In other words, those 5,535 murders is the figure given officially by the Venezuelan government of protesters they murdered in 2017 alone. That's not even counting the murders by the hands of Chavistas who were armed by Chavez and Maduro meanwhile the rest of the populace has been disarmed.

Number of homicides in Venezuela in 2017, by categorization

Since Chavez and Maduro disarmed the populace, but armed Chavistas and ordered the police and military to kill some protesters to try to stop other protests, and since the only people armed are those loyal to Chavez/Maduro, the increase in murders in Venezuela is directly tied to the repression against protesters.

Those of you, leftists every one of you, who want to claim that it is safer in Venezuela are denying the truth because NONE OF YOU want to admit what your utopia truly does in a country.

Most of you haven't even lived under such "terror," but you want to deny the testimony of Venezuelans who have been able to escape, or even "dissidents" such as students who have been tortured daily in the socialist prisons for disagreeing with the socialist dictatorship.

EU blacklists top Venezuelan officials over torture, rights abuses

Venezuela’s Brutal Crime Crackdown: Executions, Machetes and 8,292 Dead

The torture that has been used mostly on civilians, but also against military personnel who have been caught trying to leave or refused orders, continues to this day. Such torture includes daily beatings, electrocution to the point that in some prisoners their toenails explode, crucifixion (yes crucifixion too), stress positions for up to a week, prisoners being bled to make them lightheaded and then interrogate them, etc, etc. All of this is done to people for simply disagreeing with the socialist dictatorship. Yet leftists living safely in CAPITALIST nations want to claim that none of this is true. Every one of you disgust me.

Student leader Lorent Saleh, who was imprisoned for 4 years and was tortured for peacefully protesting against the regime, has stated that he saw men crucified as a form of torture.
¡ENTREVISTA DE IMPACTO! Lorent Saleh: Vi a presos colgados tres días de una reja, crucificados

The above interview is in Spanish, but anyone can use google translate, or some other translator, so I won't be accused by leftists who can't understand Spanish that I am making this up.

May I ask why you are portraying Maduro as a good guy? Do you think he is doing the right thing?


I honestly couldn't tell you if he's doing the right thing or not because I don't know what Venezuelan socialism minus U.S. sanctions and meddling looks like.

Things actually seemed to be going pretty well for them until the Obama administration worked to lower the price of oil in order to force Iran to the negotiating table.

ROFLMAO...look who is "lapping that sh!t up like it was kool-aid..."

Here is a link that ATS member "projectvxn" gave in another thread and shows that there was no sanctions against the Venezuelan people.

www.treasury.gov...

As "projectvxn" stated in the other thread:


originally posted by: projectvxn
VZ sanctions were against party individuals, government officials, and government accounts. It also ended their potential ICO from fleecing the alt-coin market to cover up for their failed monetary policy.

There are NO sanctions against the Venezuelan people.

www.abovetopsecret.com...


The whole fault lies on the socialist economy. Exactly as it happened in every far left regime that adopted a socialist economy, including the U.S.S.R., China, North Korea, Cuba, Burma, Venezuela, etc, etc.

"People like me"?

There is no one quite like me, of that I can assure you.

I'm not so much defending a socialist dictator as I am attacking globalism.

I just read Guaido had 20 soldiers on his side at the end. What was the plan? Looks like a futile exercise.

I really grow tired of making the same handful of people look stupid over and over again. And I really hate having to repeat myself over and over again because of said stupidity, so I'm just going to go to bed now and wish you luck with that.

The UK is a permanent UN security council member. I expect them to be the bastion of democracy and human rights while they bring this issue up to the UN.

In no time, the global community will act and make sure that those who have been wrong get righted.

I bet Disney will pick up that fairy tale.


The UK will do exactly what the US tells them to

Troops are the third phase when the US wants to install a puppet dictator, the first two involve the CIA and businessmen, learn how the system works before speaking, put away your stick and start picking up books instead

says you

but by all means keep making crap up.....it doesn't make you look like the crazy person you are or anything.....

interesting you refuse to discuss the vote of the people or the assembly....
typical liberal anti american bs



What exactly am I making up? Have you studied history in detail, at all?


Imagine a guy that has "capitalism is Organized Crime" on hit avatar area being pro Chavez type of person. Seems amazing to me that there are actual adults that actually BELIEVE in socialism.

Disgusting.


If you need to tell yourself that I'm advocating socialsm, then you do that


Doubly disgusting


What are you advocating then? Do you have some magical third way? Bunch of if only's and what if's that the natural order of things would never allow and thus would never work? When will you folk learn what's really real and what isn't?

I am beginning to see that even these problems we have in the USA will never be "fixed" with communication and I am perfectly fine with that. I am prepared and getting prepared. Never thought I would have to, but you un closeted communist people are going for your hail Mary and I intend to boo from the stadium seats because I dearly and passionately want your team to lose. And not only to lose but to be completely humiliated so society at large never has to deal with the nonsense you and people like you propagate and push on the masses.

Your ideas only make people insane and they help no one.


I am not a communist either, if choose the choice of a defeatist then please do not say anything, uhm Fools



Well then? Explain why you have the notions you have. Seem pretty commie to me.


I'm sorry, when did the thread title suddenly change to "please state political beliefs all members", what would you write? "I eat popcorn and believe in nothing except accusing people of being commies"


And another thing, seeing as you mentioned my avatar, do you suffer from schizophrenia by any chance?

Because countries with a totalitarian government have always been improved through a military junta.

The links work, but ATS changes the word "cocaine" into "coc aine", probably to avoid being found by search engines.

We have to join the two parts to get the full link.

Washington is open for “military action” in dealing with Venezuela’s crisis, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced. Softening his war-mongering rhetoric, he said that a peaceful option is still more preferable.


www.rt.com...

I'm a little unsure exactly what the US and Guaido planned here..

Free the political opposition figure, fly to an airbase, grab a few dozen troops and then... what.. expect Maduro to just walk into the sunset?... and now there's reports they're both sheltering in foreign government embassies in Caracas..

strange things happening...

Less of a "Coup" and more of a Chicken Coup...

America supports a leader to take office that hasn't actually won or offered to take part in a Democratic Election. Plus I know not all Americans support it but your current regime speaks in your stead.


"Land Of The Free" is looking pretty well... Completely Ironic.

And yet you seem to support a Socialist Dictator that crushes dissent (quite literally as shown in footage posted on here) brutally, locking up and torturing opponents whilst lining his own pockets whilst his people starve and the economy collapses?

You think Venezuela is free?

That is quite some double standards that you have. I think irony is a bit beyond you.

I think that's why he wasn't able to gain more military support. Thank you I didn't know that.

The only chance the people of Venezuela have is sadly to sabotage the state where they can find it. Occupy everything that makes Maduro's life still enjoyable. Run it completely into the ground, make it uncomfortable and no more profitable for his supporters.
Then there can be change. Venezuela has to burn to the ground if the people want freedom and democracy. Everything else is just a bandaid.


That is all very true.......but.......under current UN Regulations on migration, its simply easier for the people to just leave. I have Venezuelan friends, Doctor and his wife. He practiced for years in Caracas but maintains a home he lives in now in Miami.

The big problem now is time and mobilization. The UN is so slow to recognize a "failed" state and even slower to intervene that by the time the so-called International Community does respond, they roll into ghost towns and cities.........everyone had to fee just to stay alive and feed the kids.

Point one: Capitalism is organized crime.

Point two: You are rooting for a socialist/communist regime that has ruined an entire country.

Thus I think you are a communist thinking person.
