Fun in Venezuela

Tonight, Venezuela is seeing a spasm of violence that’s unlike anything the country has experienced since 1989. Information is fragmented, since an almost complete media black-out is in place, but you don’t need the media to hear your neighbor’s screams.

Caracas, Valencia, Merida and San Cristobal in particular have become virtual war zones: National Guard units and National Police have been shooting tear gas canisters and buckshot sometimes directly at protesters, sometimes into residential buildings and, raiding any place they think student protesters may be hiding. Alongside them, the government backed colectivos (basically paramilitary gangs on motorbikes, a tropical basij) shoot at people with live ammo.

Well they could get them to move out the same way they are dealing with everyone else who doesn't do as money controllers wish.
Shoot them in the face with tear gas, or a gun.

Best wishes in what respect, that the firebombs you want them to have take out some police or soldiers? Didn't take the CIA long to start ****ing the place over again. They should exile the US (in all respects) for 150 years or more.

Neither. Buildings and communications are much more valuable to people like those.

Don't kid yourself, having police or any Government workers killed (snipers is the usual tactic as in the Ukraine) is part of the same old, same old stuff the US always pulls in any regime change.

I doubt it was destined for the rumpus room wall.

Too much watching the West do regime changes as in Libya and Syria. In the 1st vid below these are not Government troops (as they don't film in the room they are operating from and the uniforms don't match the 2nd vid in which the sniper never fires his weapon. and in the 2nd vid only a few shots are fired and none from the sniper. (the 2nd vid won't post for some reason)
You may need to have the start of the link say https

Progress at least.

Venezuela has revoked or denied press credentials for seven CNN journalists working in the country for what President Nicolas Maduro called “war propaganda” amid coverage of anti-government protests.

Before the conditions on credentials were announced, Maduro said he would eject CNN from the country if it did not “rectify” its coverage amid a spike in the unrest that has gripped Venezuela. According to officials, at least eight people have been killed since demonstrations mounted by the opposition turned violent last week. “They want to show the world that there is a civil war in Venezuela,” Maduro said of CNN in a televised speech on Thursday.
He added that CNN was not showing “the people working, studying, building the homeland.”
“I’ve asked the [information] minister to tell CNN we have started the administrative process to remove them from Venezuela if they don’t rectify [their behavior],” Maduro said during the speech aimed at supporters, according to Reuters. “Enough! I won’t accept war propaganda against Venezuela.”
The pro-government audience applauded, chanting “Fuera! Fuera!” (“Out! Out!”)

When I lived in Central America in the late 80's the violence against citizens by the Venezuelan Army sent shock waves through Latin America-Venezuela had been an economic powerhouse and people from all over the world emigrated there for a richer better life then it all seemed to go sour.

So where are they now?

The future doesn't look good.

You do know that at that time the Government was getting it's training from the School of America I hope
School of Americas

They just need to get rid of the US once and for all, obviously the US is going to try and go the same route they took with Cuba after 1960 and Iran after 1979.

A previous article discussed multiple Obama regime change fronts. His rogue agenda exceeds the worst of his predecessors.
He heads a Homeland Police State apparatus. He’s waging war on humanity and ravaging one country after another.
Obama wants the independent governments of Syria, Iran, Ukraine and Venezuela toppled. He’s got other targets in mind.
As for the game plan, it’s hard to keep track of his lawlessness, with the multiple initiatives ongoing at the same time.
The Monetary Cost
Tens of billions of taxpayer dollars fund these efforts to destabilize foreign governments en route to toppling them, while vital American needs go begging.
The Road to Unchallenged Global Dominance
Obama wants the same neoliberal harshness imposed domestically force-fed globally. He wants independent governments replaced with pro-Western puppet regimes. He wants unchallenged global dominance.
Control of Global Resources
Obama wants control over world resources. He wants one nation after another plundered for profit.
Venezuela is a prime target, as it’s oil reserves are the world’s largest. In addition, Bolivarian fairness represents a threat of a good example. Fifteen years of failing to crush it hasn’t deterred Washington’s viciousness. Destabilizing Venezuela is longstanding American policy. Current US-funded/manipulated street violence perhaps reflects upping the stakes.
Pattern Recognition of Violence
Just as Syrian violence is out-of-control, so is Ukraine’s. Does Obama plan to turn Venezuela into a similar battleground? Expect stiff resistance if he tries.
Mercosur Trade Alliance – What is it?
Venezuela chairs the Mercosur trade alliance. Its other member countries include Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. They issued a joint statement headlining “Mercosur condemns violence in Venezuela and calls for dialogue.” Its member states “repudiate all kind(s) of violence and intolerance which pretends to attack democracy and its institutions, whatever its origin…”
They reiterate their “strong commitment with the full exercise of democratic institutions, and in that framework reject the criminal actions from violent groups that want to disseminate intolerance and hatred as an instrument of political struggle in the Bolivarian republic of Venezuela.”
They reject “all rupture threats against the democratic order constituted on the legitimacy of universal ballot and reiterate their strong position in defense and preservation of the democratic institutions, as indicated in the 1998 Ushuaia Protocol on Mercosur democratic commitment.”

What CNN en español did not show tonight or how part of the truth is hidden by media

And it was a drone camera whose video corrected the false impression left by a CNN en Español report that there was somehow an equivalency in the size of competing demonstrations on Saturday in Caracas, Venezuela. As Daniel Duquenal of Venezuela News and Views complained, the CNN en Español report by Guillermo Arduino gave only closeup shots of competing Chavista and opposition demonstrations. However, the drone eye in the sky revealed the vast panoply of the opposition demonstration that seemed to number in the hundreds of thousands. Here is the post by Duequenal explaining why he was so irked by the CNN en Españo

Venezuela News And Views: What CNN en español did not show tonight or how part of the truth is hidden by media

Hmm... Does the latter not sound like much of the White House press corps trying to remain inoffensive in exchange for access? Anyway, it is good to know that the camera drone eye in the sky is floating around up there to put the correct context into the CNN en Español reports
