“Regime Change Made in the USA”

 

Yes, and I think nothing we’ve seen from the United States in quite a while generates more just plain contempt for America’s government than this circus over Venezuela.

Frankly, American officials resemble nothing so much as a gang of drunken sailors standing on a street corner, leering and shouting rude things to every person passing.

Good God, such open contempt for the rule of law and diplomatic protocol and the very values of democracy from a nation that seems to think it actually sets high standards in the world.

How does it get more inappropriate, more threatening than American officials contacting members of Venezuela’s armed forces and luring them to revolt?

Americans, is this the kind of work you elect your government to perform?

Unless the United States actually decides to invade, which I tend to believe for a few reasons it will not, I think this entire dangerously blundering effort in Venezuela is going to fail.

The man America opposes is popular, was elected twice, and for anyone reading his statements appears to have a higher standard of honesty than any senior member of the American government.

Maybe this whole matter will open up a new chapter in America’s relations with other countries.

I don’t see why, after this, others should show any reluctance to butt into America’s internal affairs.

Speak up. Advertise. Leak. There’s a wealth of embarrassing and really dirty stuff packed away in Washington’s closets.

It would be such a well-deserved reward.
