Pence Threatens War in Venezuela at Colombia Summit: “There Is No Turning Back”

Simultaneous with this weekend’s planned confrontation, the US military escalated its war plans. CNN reported that

“the US military has flown an increased number of reconnaissance flights in international airspace off the coast of Venezuela during the last several days to gather classified intelligence” in possible preparation for a military intervention.

On Saturday, Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rosselló reported that the Venezuelan military threatened to “open fire” on an American ship that entered Venezuelan territorial waters without permission. Though the ship was registered in Vanuatu, it was flying under a US flag in violation of international maritime law. US officials claim the ship was carrying 200 tons of “humanitarian aid.”

Venezuelan officials allege that US “humanitarian aid” includes weapons shipments to Colombia. Last Wednesday, Colombian armed forces leader Maj. Gen. Luis Navarro Jiménez traveled to Florida, where he met with leaders of US Southern Command.

The Washington Post wrote yesterday that behind the scenes in Bogotá, Guaidó “sought assurances that the United States could use force if necessary.” Venezuelan right-wing opposition leader Julio Borges tweeted Sunday that the opposition “will urge for an escalation of diplomatic pressure and the use of force against the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, it is on; needing to distance himself from the problems of the Kim Jun Un summit in Hanoi, and the horrific accusations Cohen made against Trump in his testimony to Congress, President Trump may well feel compelled to redirect focus on Venezuela, and very quickly.

I truly think that this will be his next ploy, and we need to be conscious and aware this weekend, because my sense is, that this will be the time when he will want to move forward.
