Venezuela's Guaido Pressures Maduro over Humanitarian Aid

During the protest, Guaido announced the installation of collection centers for medicine and food in neighboring Colombia and Brazil. The United States later said it would transport aid to Venezuela in response to a request by Guaido.

Before Venezuela: The long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accuses the United States of trying to orchestrate a coup against him, and that allegation has resonance among many in a region where Washington has a long history of interventions—military and otherwise.
Ever since the early 19th century, the United States has involved itself in the daily affairs of nations across Latin America, often on behalf of North American capitalist interests or to support right-leaning forces against left-wing and popular democratic leaders.
In recent years, the U.S. has been accused of granting at least tacit backing to coups in Venezuela in 2002 and Honduras in 2009. The Trump administration’s leading role in recognizing Juan Guaidó as the “interim president” of Venezuela returns the U.S. once more to an assertive role in Latin American countries’ internal affairs.
Some of the most notable U.S. interventions in Latin America:
1846: The United States invades Mexico and captures Mexico City in 1847. A forced peace treaty the following year gives the U.S. more than half of Mexico’s territory—what is now most of the western United States.





1903: The U.S. engineers Panamanian independence from Colombia and gains sovereign rights over the zone where the Panama Canal would connect Atlantic and Pacific shipping routes.
1903: After the Spanish-American War, Cuba and the U.S. sign a “treaty” allowing near-total U.S. control of Cuban affairs. U.S. establishes a naval base at Guantanamo Bay.
U.S. Marines repeatedly intervene in Central America and the Caribbean throughout the first quarter of the 20th century, often to protect U.S. business interests.

Strict rules and regulations or rip open and gut the Earth with abandon..... The Orinoco Belt consists of large deposits of extra heavy crude. Venezuela's heavy oil deposits of about 1,200 billion barrels (1.9×1011 m3), found primarily in the Orinoco Petroleum Belt, are estimated to approximately equal the world's reserves of lighter oil.

Which totally makes the CIA oil coup acceptable

Just like it did in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and 80 some odd other countries.

Likely you were wondering why trudie screwed our oil patch too I bet.

Why worry about china, other than to deflect criticism from Israel? Israel and the dual passport warhawk neocons set the example of what to do with all this "found" oil.

The REAL Reason The U.S. Wants Regime Change in Venezuela

Sanctions are the 21st century version of infected blankets sent in by the IMF now that cameras are around to record the former death squads using tactics honed in South Africa and taught in American military circles.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - Canada’s foreign ministry has denied accreditation to Sputnik and RIA Novosti for a meeting of the Lima Group foreign ministers on Venezuela in Ottawa.

Richard Walker, a spokesman for Canada's foreign ministry, explained to Sputnik's correspondent that the agency was denied accreditation because it "hasn't been cordial" with Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland in the past.
"Thank you for your interest in the 10th ministerial meeting of Lima Group in Ottawa. This email is to let you know you have NOT been accredited as media," the Canadian Foreign Ministry said in its original letter, notifying journalists about the refusal.
The ministry did not cite any reasons behind its decision in the letter.
Meanwhile, Walker said, when asked to explain the refusal, that "in the past Sputnik hasn't been cordial with minister Freeland."

Pretty soon the world will fund the wall, to keep Americans (and Canadians) in.
If the UN pledged to do that ff the world let them move to the UN they would be there in a single month.

We have enough tundra for that, and more, and when it melts just say the Mexicans stole it and add some more @ cost plus prices. Meanwhile all the villages are growing herbs on every south facing wall in the county were said thefts would occur using some invention called 'drop irrigation'.

The Bogus Bolivarian Blockade

On February 6th, 2019 U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo posted an image from Venezuela depicting a blockaded Puente Binacional Tienditas (Tienditas Binational Bridge) spanning the border of Colombia and Venezuela; stating that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro had ordered the his military to blockade the bridge in order to prevent aid trucks from entering the country. Pompeo implored Maduro to allow the trucks through so that the “starving people” of Venezuela could receive the aforementioned aid.
The bridge in question is located between Cucuta, Colombia and Tachira, Venezuela and though some questioned the authenticity of the image Francisco Toro, the Editor in Chief of the Caracas Chronicles and Global Opinion Columnist for the Washington Post, tweeted other images to show that the original image was, in fact, and authentic depiction of the current state of the bridge in response to criticism from another twitter user.
That would seem to tie up all the loose ends of this story, and give hard evidence that the Maduro government is indeed blockading the Tienditas Bridge to keep aid trucks from reaching those “starving people.” The problem with this however, is that this bridge has never been used.
Google Images show the same images Toro referenced, with the date showing February of 2019. However they also show this image, shown below.

Perhaps this is a different bridge and Google made an error? No such luck, because these are barriers that have been on this bridge for quite some time. An image posted on Voice of America similar to that of Secretary Pompeo and the above image confirms this theory.

In addition to its vast oil reserves, Venezuela is believed to have 10,000 tonnes in unmined gold, with most of it located in the country's southeast.

About 300,000 prospectors working in make-shift mines in the jungles of Venezuela are helping provide Caracas with much-needed means to stay afloat and pay for food, medicine, hygiene products, and other crucial imports.
According to new Venezuelan Central Bank data, small-time prospectors have sold a whopping 17 tonnes of the precious metal to the government since 2016, with the haul valued at about $650 million.

They want to conquer and rule them and steal the oil and gold. What did you think they were up to?

Just intel to what moves are being made. Usually the US works within a pretty small window of opportunity. Lies last about a week at best these days. The bridge thing was exposed within a few hours.


I assume when the S-300 is out of ammo that Russia will do what it takes to establish a 'supply-line'.
The local army is too well educated in the way things were before Hugo to go back to that way of life.
