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

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 (external - login to view) 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 (external - login to view) 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.”
