Countdown to War on Venezuela – Step II: Trump Imposes More Sanctions | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Countdown to War on Venezuela – Step II: Trump Imposes More Sanctions

The White House statement calls Maduro a “dictator” and his Presidency “illegitimate”. Both descriptions are laughable. Maduro was elected in free and fair elections. The former U.S. president Jimmy Carter called the election system in Venezuela the best in the world. The new sanctions will likely increase the support for the current government.

The White House hinted at further economic measures:

In a call to brief reporters on the measures, the [senior Trump] official said the United States has significant influence over Venezuela’s economy but does not want to wield it in an irresponsible manner that could further burden the already-struggling Venezuelan people.

Venezuela will now have some troubling times. But unless the U.S. launches an outright military attack on the country -by proxy of its neighbors, through mercenaries or by itself- the country will easily survive the unjust onslaught.

With 300 billion barrels the proven oil-reserves of Venezuela are the largest of the world. They are the reason why the U.S. wants to subjugate the country. But neither Russia nor China nor anyone else wants to see those reserves under U.S. control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the kind of job for which President Trump would most likely sign off on the use of hired assassins, like Erik Prince's Academi.

US Troop deployment is stretched so thinly, that I would not imagine him placing US military resources there.
