What happens in Venezuela should concern the UN, not?
Where are they?
Maduro has been kicked out, he refuses to leave.
People are starving, crime is through the roof.
Are they afraid they might end up facing a battle they can't win? Only good when the mission is against small adversaries?

Then there are the ones thinking of Che as hero. It could be the stuff that ignites a stand-off between ideologies. That's kind of a big thing, because it could lead to WW3. Socialism vs capitalism.
The problem is the US is kind of the only real capitalist in the world.

Since the UN currently is hiding under the table I keep thinking about who could intervene in a constructive way?

Strictly speaking, the UN can only arbitrate between countries, not within them.
It has intervened in civil wars in the past, like the Congo in the Sixties, but I'm fairly sure this would have been with the excuse that a government had asked for assistance.

As said by DISRAELI the situation in Venezuela is an internal problem so nothing to do with the UN.

The UN does not get involved in this type of thing. Some nations could work towards the UN Security Council wording a resolution, but Russia would vote against anything that threatenes their lacky, regardless of the abuse and dysfunction in Venezuala proper.

For example UN Security Council

That said, the UN is already involved with countering human rights in Venezuala ... UNCHR

And what if Guaido would ask for support?

The troubles in that country have been directly caused by the U.S. and the U.S. controls the UN.

It's not rocket science unless you are completely naive.

Then there would be a discussion and a vote, which might or might not result in a resolution proposing action. Bear in mind, though, that certain members of the Security Council, including Russia and the United States, can veto decisions of the Security Council. That was built into the U.N. constitution.

P.S. I think it would have to be Maduro asking for support. Just as, in the case of an American civil war, the U.N.would have to listen to Trump and not to Hillary. The U.N.is not officially in the business of changing governments.

I am pretty sure the Security Council has convened like at least half a dozen times since January this year alone. Thats where they are constantly negotiating who gets what piece of land at the end of the current WW3. Clearly NATO got a big chunk of Syria, with Turkey trying to independently gain another large chunk for itself, Russia took Crimea, Israel got the Golan Heights and free reign to attack Iran in Syria, Our Southern friends and the Organization of American States are working out the spoils of Venezuela, mostly Brazil and Colombia. Russia also looks to benefit from the reclamation of Tripoli in join efforts with Egypt, Saudis/UAE, and France. Yes, that is also about the oil, as well as markets and its got Italy and the UK upset. India and Pakistan have been slapping each other around again, and even China gave India a bruise last year.

I think India is pissed and ready to thump its chest. We should embrace that intent with friendship and work together for common goals

But Russia, the US and China are the foreign influences involved. They get to vote on their own case?

Yep. The system was not set up to allow the major powers to be overruled by majority vote.

Yep. Back when Russia annexed Crimea there was a proposed resolution to declare the annexation illegal and Russia vetoed it.

The annexation of Crimea is illegal. For a start, Crimea belongs to Ukraine and their courts have asserted the illegality of Russia' belligerence and territorial acquisition.

Anyway, while the UN Security Council may not have passed a resolution due to Russia's action to veto such, the UN General Assembly passed resolutions that condemn Russian actions and the illegality of their occupation.

Sorry, off-topic question...

How did you do that...reply to two different people? I've never been able to figure that out and would really like to know how! That's a handy feature.

I bet they are still shaking.
To me the question at this moment is if we will see a showdown soon?
What I don't get is: if you talk with someone everybody agrees the USA is super advanced, but all we get to see are cavemen strategies. Maybe you just need to show what you can do and everybody would shut up?
Is America not also known for it's creativity?
I imagine at least cyborgs
jk
But I hope Trump goes for a really wild strategy.

Sorry that was a drift my head is still in Venezuela.
