Yeah, it has to be about "big oil" doesn't it?

It couldn't be about incomprehensibly corrupt politicians stealing all that oil money for themselves, and at the expense of the people...now could it???

Nope...must be about 'big oil', right???

Some of you guys are a broken record.



It's the only song that they know. Those "corrupt politicians" are Marxist-Socialists so they have to be the good guys. At least that's what they were taught in school.

Big oil? Or the people have had enough of a massively corrupt Socialist dictatorship which does not tolerate dissent and locks up opposition politicians while the people starve due to it's failed economic policies?

Officials of the National Guard that support @jguaido neutralize the military on the Francisco Fajardo highway in Caracas


.. neutralize... what a word - fear not they took them into custody


The president of Colombia, @IvanDuque urges the Venezuelan military to support the head of the Parliament and Acting president of Venezuela, @jguaido


gun fire happening around the military base where Guaido is managing the coup

Apparently China (seriously, FOX News just said China) has assisted and shut down all social media in Venezuela and the metro has been taken offline

Here we go again, yet another example of the foreign policies of a so called democratic country in action, way to go America, you truly are the global shining light of hypocrisy


Also quite hilarious to see Guaidó, complete with his US supplied suit, calling for an uprising.

The problem with socialism...is that, eventually, you run out of zoo animals to eat.

What was it Bill Hicks once said about politicians, I paraphrase but it's something like "everytime they speak a turd falls into my drink"

Let's see... Maduro allowed his country to fall into chaos by overextending the government obligations and not diversifying the economy.

Maduro refused to vacate the office as required by Venezuela's constitution.

The Venezuelans are forced to eat pets and zoo animals to survive.

The US sends humanitarian aid trucks that are refused entry.

China and Russia intervene in Venezuela.

A coup breaks out with China's assistance.

And the US is the bad guy here? Hello? Earth to Zcustosmorum... come in Zcustosmorum... we've lost radio contact... please come in Zcustosmorum...

Sanctions aside, this has been a long time coming. Maduro has mismanaged the country into turmoil, there isn't much debate over that.

I (as an American) don't want any involvement in this country, I'm hoping as I said that it's nonexistent or minimal... But lets just say there is more than that... The western world is complicit. You can blame America for plenty of things, and with good reason. But I don't see anyone bringing it up to the UN. The closest thing the UK will do to standing up to us is not going side by side with us to our next endeavor, but I don't see that happening much.

Russian Embassy in Venezuela denied that any of military installations seized by protesters, says military is on Maduro side

Redneck, redneck, calling Redneck, your signal is breaking up, contact is lost through your subscription to CNN/MSBNC/Fox or whatever other garbage MSM you subscribe to.

And CIA arms shipments DO NOT constitute humanitarian aid, besides that, Venezuela wouldn't even need humanitarian aid if the US hadn't been sanciontioning them in the first place


Wake the hell up man.

Funny how the criticism of other countries by the US only starts when they want something, and as is known from history, when the US wants something from another country, they'll just take it anyway

My prediction is this doesn't last the rest of the day and Guaidó will leave the country.

So, looks like china will be helping out Maduro.

This is a nice opportunity to study how and why China had access to their networks from abroad .

Wasn't there a similar thread some time ago about china and another countries internet infrastructure???

The US stands with Juan and rightfully so, to hell with maduro and china.

I dont know.. The US have made no mistake about their intentions, Guaido is their guy and Pompeo and Bolton have been calling for Maduro to leave, give up power and theatening him if anything happens to Guaido.

Guaido cant give up now, it would be like the bay of pigs... the starter gun has gone so you run to the end.. you dont walk off the track half way because you were getting tired.

Also quite hilarious to see Guaidó, complete with his US supplied suit, calling for an uprising.


You find this funny?

What if the people want an uprising and are put down with Chinese help? No doubt you will find that "hilarious", too.

Please take off your anti US blinkers.

You need to sort out your priorities in life, then.

I am a Brit too and am hardly a blinkered USA supporter but comes a time when you need to wake up and smell the coffee.

Didn't those people actually vote?
I think they did. I think the national assembly recognized the peoples vote.
Is that not the "true spirit of the US idea of democracy in action"?

Have we sent troops to Venezuala?
Didn't think so.

Like I posted
You dont like it
