The 35-year-old is an industrial engineer by training, but he began organizing demonstrations against Hugo Chavez more than a decade ago after the late leader silenced critics by refusing to renew the broadcast license of Venezuela’s most popular television channel. Guaido formed a close relationship with Leopoldo Lopez and helped the former Caracas mayor establish the Popular Will party. Even with Lopez under house arrest, they talk several times a day.
In his short career, Guaido has been applauded for building unity among fellow legislators. Now his challenge is to do the same across the country, channeling the desperate desire for change within the limits of a regime intent on suppressing dissent. “The situation has catapulted him into the spotlight,” Romero said.
After he began pushing the Venezuelan military and foreign governments to recognize him and not Maduro as the legitimate leader, Guaido was arrested by Maduro’s secret police. Released hours later, he redoubled his call for the protests on Wednesday, a holiday commemorating the birth of Venezuela’s six-decade-old democracy.

Disputed Interim President of Venezuela

Assumption of presidential powers and duties

Nations recognizing Guaidó as acting president
Venezuela
Recognize Guaidó
Recognize Maduro


After what he and others described as the "illegitimate" inauguration of Maduro on 10 January 2019, Guaidó announced he would challenge Maduro's claim and held a rally the following day, where the National Assembly announced he had assumed the powers and duties of president and they would continue to plan to remove Maduro, contributing to the presidential crisis.[27] [28] [29] The Venezuelan foreign minister responded with saying "You see this man, who nobody knows in Venezuela—you ask in the streets, “Who is Juan Guaidó?” and nobody knows him—but he’s being pushed to say that he is the new president, by the U.S".[30]
From early on in his career as Assembly president and then self-proclaimed Acting president in January 2019, it has been noted by reporters and commenters that Guaidó evokes former US President Barack Obama in his presence and movements, and also may have deliberately used the same "rallying cry" as Obama: "Sí, se puede!", Spanish for "Yes we can".[31]
On 15 January 2019, Guaidó wrote an article for The Washington Post , which described and analysed the situation in Venezuela at the time, and stated he was trying to resolve the instability with technical explanations.[32]

‘Totally not meddling’: Reactions to US recognition of Venezuela’s Guaido as ‘acting president’

https://sputniknews.com/latam/201901...-armed-forces/
Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said Wednesday that the country's military will continue to defend the Venezuelan constitution and national sovereignty, and would not accept an "imposed president."

Without specifically naming opposition leader Juan Guaido, Padrino told his hundreds of thousands of followers on Twitter that while despair and intolerance continue to threaten the country's peace, the military would not accept a president imposed in the shadow of the dark interests or self-proclaimed outside of the law. He added that soldiers would defend the constitution and act as a guarantor of national sovereignty.

I apologize I didn't realise you were handicapped

Also pointing out a lot of this stuff you are posting has been discussed already, but I guess this way you can split the conversation to confuse posters and carry on with your personality study

US Refuses To Withdraw Diplomats From Venezuela, "Will Take Appropriate Actions" If Harmed

In what may shape up to be a major international incident over the next 48 hours, the United States has refused to withdraw diplomats from Venezuela, saying in a Wednesday evening statement that the US "stands with interim President Juan Guaido," adding "The United States does not recognize the Maduro regime as the government of Venezuela. Accordingly the United States does not consider former president Nicolas Maduro to have the legal authority to break diplomatic relations with the United States or to declare our diplomats persona non grata.

Coincidence? Venezuela Green Lights Russia to Mine Gold, Days Later US Attempts Overthrow

For those who may be unaware, the proven oil reserves in Venezuela are known to be the largest in the world, totaling 297 billion barrels. In December, Caracas and Moscow signed a $5 billion investment deal to raise Venezuela’s oil production by one million barrels per day. This move was done to counter the effects of US sanctions which have been crippling the country and raised many neocon eyebrows.
What’s more, aside from their proven oil deposits, Venezuela is also known for its extremely rich gold deposits. Also in December, Caracas gave the green light to Russia to begin mining gold inside their country.
“As for Russia’s participation in gold-mining or other mining projects, Venezuela has made a wide range of interesting proposals that are currently under consideration by interested Russian operators,” the ambassador said.
Because of their rich deposits and need to subvert US sanctions and a weaponized US dollar, Venezuela has become the 25th largest holder of gold in the world making them a direct threat to the global banking system.
To think that the US interests in Venezuela are purely humanitarian is not only asinine but it blindly ignores decades of US interventionism highlighting the contrary—especially considering what happened in Libya.
As TFTP has previously reported, on October 20th, 2011, the West took it upon itself to use NATO to overthrow Gaddafi — not for any humanitarian threat to civilians as had been repeatedly claimed and is the alleged impetus behind the coup in Venezuela — but because his planned roll-out of a new currency to be used across Africa posed a palpable existential threat to central banks at the heart of the Western financial and political system.
In fact, before Washington’s endorsement of Guaido, Venezuela was carrying out a similar plan. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan recently launched a gold trade with Maduro. But this was not simply moving gold from one place to another. Maduro announced that he was moving his entire refining operation directly to Turkey in a direct move against the Western monetary controlled sanctions.
Now, we find ourselves on the precipice of an all out invasion of their country. Go figure.

https://sputniknews.com/latam/201901...zuela-Embassy/
The US State Department has ordered non-emergency employees in Venezuela to leave the country and urged US citizens there to "strongly consider" doing so, the US Embassy in Caracas has told Reuters.

On Wednesday, following US recognition of the virtually unknown Juan Guaido as Interim President of Venezuela, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro gave all US diplomatic personnel 72 hours to leave the country. The following day, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said before the Organization of American States that as the US no longer recognized Maduro as the legitimate leader of Venezuela, US diplomats weren't obliged to obey his dictates.
