There is no moral reason to turn your back on others in their time of need, especially when they are asking for help. The only reasons for that are cowardice and self-concern.


Lol.

I'm not in the military, cowardice would be beating war drums for them to go to another failed theater.


Cowardice and self-concern.

Young Spanish speaking linguist will be in big demand when we invade Venezuela. I can't think of anything more patriotic than to sacrifice yourself for corporate capitalism and to stimulate the global economy.

Yeah, I care about my own country, but I'm not going to virtue signal and faux wail an anguish over crap going on in the globe just because it's in the news.


So you do not care about any people or country outside of your own.

To be honest, I rarely even think about the people in my own country.

I work.

I work a lot. Have lots of responsibility.

Then there's my family, which comes before anyone and anything else.

So crap that goes on in the world becomes an interesting exercise in debate when on ATS, but I have more important things to do mostly.

Aah. Virtue-signalling. All you need do now is create a hashtag.

Um, no.

Honesty.

Virtue signaling would be thinking that writing on a conspiracy site about "caring" is the same thing as doing something.

Venezuela is a very small nation. They are dealing with the manifestation of their peoples decisions.

Keep promoting the "humanitarian" lines while ignoring our recent track record with such endeavors. Our boys are better off here focusing on our country. It needs it.

Says the guy trying to sell America to save a failed experiment.

I could make a list of a whole bunch of other countries who are going through worse.

But I'm consistent, I don't want us to police them either.

The UN can show they're worth a chit and do something about it with a collection of nations' youth and tax money.

For the win, well done. Admittedly I couldn't figure out how to say and what forum to put in that they jumped the gun on "violent revolution underway in Venezuela" after Guiado released his flopped propaganda piece.

Twenty soldiers are behind me and I'm wearing a tie at a military base. I'm starting the final phase to overthrow Maduro for the people. The army is with us, see? They're right behind me.

Then CNN and the rest went from headliners to being really quiet by the end of the same day. The next, no new articles on the front page.

But man, they were ready and the reason why the media likes war is obvious. They get more viewers on the television, more views on the internet, but all around? Advertisements all around. Everybody tunes in and checks for that stuff. I remember being glued to the television during the first Gulf War and during 9/11.

I'm not surprised at all that corporate media is on the same page with the White House and the regime change. It is times like these that we can truly see that they both work for the same interests and the same people, when they don't have to put on a show.

We already know Trump has wanted to change the power in Venezuela since he took office. In fact he had to be stopped a few times. His cabinet members said he suggested assassination. He talked to neighboring leaders and tried to promote a war in the region but was dissuaded at every turn, by his advisors and by those foreign leaders.

In the end they persuaded him that an alternate approach was possible, that would avoid us getting involved in a war.

That alternate solution is what we're observing at the moment.

Here is an article back from July 2018 describing all this and how Trump's advisers prevented it.

Give a fish a man, and it will be lunchtime.
Teach a fish to man, and suddenly you arn't lonely at lunch.

Now Venezuela is the fish, and Developed countries are the man.
All of the "aid" we give these countries is to make them economic slaves. Turning your back on them is quite literally the best choice if you want them to be self sufficient... or at least happy due to ignorance.

Operation it's the thought that counts.

We can have our feel good receptors really get some warm feel nices if we have the right intention.

I'm just happy our cable network media stations primed us for incredible ecstacy once we bring freedom.

brettwilkins.com...

Brett Wilkins is a San Francisco-based freelance writer and activist. He grew up a staunch Reagan Republican in New Jersey and remained a conservative well into young adulthood. Traveling the world, he encountered different people and perspectives that opened his mind to truths very different from those “held self-evident” in the United States. His global re-education was enriched by modern American progressive thinkers including Martin Luther King Jr., Howard Zinn, Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, Michelle Alexander and Ralph Nader, and by some of the same sites he now writes for.

A lifelong writer, Brett wrote his first book at age 7, started a newspaper with his cousin at age 10 and was hired at his first regional newspaper at age 15. A switch of college majors then detoured him from writing for the better part of two decades. In 2010 he began writing professionally again. His work has appeared at Yahoo News, Business Insider, ABC News and other mainstream outlets, as well as on progressive and peace blogs and sites including Counterpunch, Common Dreams, Antiwar.com and others. He is currently editor-at-large for US news at Digital Journal.

Brett’s writing and journalism focuses on issues of war and peace, human rights and social justice. His activism includes participation in movements including #BlackLivesMatter, Occupy Wall Street, #FightFor15 and others. He is a fierce critic of corporate capitalism, US imperialism and hypocrisy, racism and bigotry, Israeli crimes against Palestine and religious idiocy.

When not railing against the interminable injustices of the world, Brett enjoys traveling, running, reading and, in his one remaining guilty American pleasure, San Francisco Giants baseball.

Most people huh?? Let's really not go there. Many of us have invested efforts in our threads to show just that, including two peices of legislation signed Into law by previous admins and the agencies they fund including their goals and partnerships with media, academia, NGO's, private companies etc...

In any case, I don't understand why this is so difficult. All they have to do is tie it into the war on drugs, and we can get the same parallel # fest we got in Syria. Russia don't have enough ships to back Maduro all the way against just US, let alone the combined force of our regional allies. Time for thaad in Colombia and Brazil .

Some basic things we need to do to speed this up, I am disappointed in the lack of proper commitment here myself.
Some of the following would help us speed this up though.


  • deploy THAAD to Colombia and Brazil with their permission (💰💵💰)
  • find the most crime infested #hole trafficking point on both borders, I'm assuming coastal or Amazon river basin, and launch a humanitarian anti-narcotic mission to liberate the innocent citizens from the grasp of drug trafficking crime syndicates. they likely also smuggle people and weapons as well. get some sir strips going and park the ucav's.
  • Utilize special reconnaissance and sigint to link their suppliers and backers to corrupt elements within Maduro support.
  • Find images of anti-Semitic support for Maduro. That could flip the switch really fast.
  • Go base hopping from one trafficking point to another a d clear small air strips all along the way.
  • Sacrifice guaido and use his martyrdom as the catalyst to go hot
  • null


Grant me the power to make the decisions and I will snap my fingers and say "make it so"

Failed experiment? It hasn’t even happened yet. We have already determined you base your conclusions on conjecture, and the assumption that most interventions have failed, which is something we’ve discovered to be false. You’re consistently fearful and self-concerned, but that’s about it.

I said recent interventions which is not false. You trying to buff the results with wars over a generation ago.


You’re consistently fearful and self-concerned, but that’s about it.


Fearful and self concerned?

I'm not in the military bub. Life will be just the same for me. But not for those who are involved with a possible intervention. I don't use my vote to put some one in harms way unless I'm going too.

According to the RAND association, 9% of foreign interventions in the last 100 years failed to meet the objectives. You use this 9% to predict probabilities regarding future interventions, bub.

Others use this same assumption to spread the propaganda of Maduro's regime and to lambast their own military and leadership.
