Yemen Nails US' Venezuela Lies

Juan Guaido, the 35-year-old US-educated opposition figure whom most Venezuelans had never heard of until recently, is breathlessly described in Western media reports as the "internationally recognized president".

That's a lie for a start. Guaido is recognized by the US and some other states, but the vast majority of nations continue to recognize the government of President Maduro as the legitimate authority. Maduro was inaugurated on January 10 for the second time as elected president. That's when Washington began to crank up its regime-change campaign in this country, which happens to possess the world's biggest-known oil reserves.

In an audacious subterfuge, Guaido proclaimed himself "acting president" of Venezuela on January 23. It was a move fully orchestrated by the Trump White House as a step towards regime change.
Guaido is now contriving a set-piece drama over humanitarian aid which is misleadingly being reported as blocked by the Maduro government on a single and actually defunct border crossing with Colombia. The bridge was built in 2015 but never opened due to an ongoing dispute between the two countries.

Juan Guaido, who has documented links with the American CIA, is being used like a puppet by the regime-change schemers in the Trump administration. They include war hawks John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, as well as convicted felon Elliot Abrams who during the 1980s ran weapons to anti-government death squads in Central America under the cover of "humanitarian aid".
