EXPANSION OF COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEW

 

“Venezuelans gather as Guaido calls for more protests amid uprising

“Russia, which backs Maduro, warns U.S. over ‘aggressive’ moves in Venezuela”

 

Guaido is simply a nincompoop.

I think that’s just about the right word to describe him.

His “uprising” just completely failed, embarrassingly so if you pay attention to details not discussed here.

One of his associates sought refuge in the Chilean Embassy.

He just goes on blubbering in CIA-made videos few even watch.

The people, the great majority, stood solidly with the elected, constitutional government of the country.

So did the army.

Guaido had, as his army, a relatively small number of men from the National Guard in uniform wearing blue armbands. They failed to achieve anything anywhere except some noise and threats.

By all traditions in every single country, Guaido should be put on trial for treason, but I think Maduro will avoid that, which would only heat things up.

John Bolton is left spluttering in Washington about “all options are on the table,” something he has tiresomely repeated at least four hundred times. Such classy diplomatic language, too.

As for Canada’s Ms. Freeland, Bolton’s willing helper from the True North, well, who knows, or even cares, what she is doing?

She is a very sad representative for our country’s traditional values.

You can’t get further away from those values than opposing an elected government, instead supporting someone who was not elected, someone who didn’t even run in the election, just because the United States says it is the thing to do.

Readers should note that this piece comes from Reuters.

It is widely understood that that is a news service which has been closely associated with the CIA in the past.

That fact may account for its tone, which is not in keeping with what actually appears to have happened, as I have pieced together from several other sources.

Response to a comment saying that I defend dictators who starve their own people:

You really should know the words to the music before standing up to sing.

Maduro cannot be called a dictator because he was elected, twice.

The polls say the people still strongly support him.

He has starved no one.

Indeed, his government has worked very hard to keep the food supplies flowing, even opening temporary stores in some districts.

It is the severe American-imposed sanctions which starve people. There have been sanctions against Venezuela of varying degrees since Obama’s time, a man who consistently did the CIA’s bidding.

Oh, and let’s not forget that ugly American stunt of disabling the county’s electrical system which certainly would have resulted in ruining food in millions of ordinary people’s fridges.

The United States’ government has hated the Venezuelan revolutionary government since its beginning with Chavez, someone who was also an elected leader and a very popular one.

America wants to reimpose the plantation system it has supported and protected in Latin America going back for many, many decades, but that system is starting to fall apart, and America’s establishment is very angry about that.

It keeps reminding us of nonsense like “the Monroe Doctrine,” as though it were quoting holy scripture.

Your charges against me personally show no knowledge of me and very little politesse, to say the least.

I am in fact a writer (in my retirement from industry) with a sizable body of work. The record couldn’t be clearer concerning what I stand for.

I’m a classic liberal who loves freedom and democracy and human rights and peace. I hate oppression and bullying and brutality – which is precisely what I see America doing in Venezuela.

Saying anything else, as you did, is wrong and, really, quite shameful.
