TILLERSON RAISES PROSPECT OF VENEZUELA MILITARY OUSTER OF MADURO

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson raised the prospect on Thursday that the Venezuelan military could decide to oust President Nicolas Maduro, but said he did not know whether that would happen.

In a speech at the University of Texas ahead of a five-nation Latin American tour, Tillerson insisted the Trump administration was not advocating “regime change” in Venezuela, but said it would be “easiest” if Maduro chose to leave power on his own.

Tillerson predicted there would be change of some kind in Venezuela and said the United States, which has had steadily worsening relations with the country’s Socialist government, wanted it to be a peaceful one.

Maduro, whose approval ratings are low amid a collapsing economy, runaway inflation and rising malnutrition in the oil-producing country, is seeking re-election in a vote that must be held by the end of April.

“We have not advocated for regime change or removal of President Maduro. We have advocated that they return to the constitution,” Tillerson said when asked during a question-and-answer session whether the removal of Maduro was necessary or the United States would play a role in it.

This is all about Venezuela's vast natural resouces; who controls them; and in what monetary demonination they are sold.

Venezuela's atural resources: petroleum, natural gas, iron ore, gold, bauxite, other minerals, hydropower, diamonds

When President Obama made a deal wih the Saudis to cut oil prices drastically, this was to throw the proverbial "monkey wrench" into the economies of Russia and Venezuela.

In the case of Russia, this just didn't work; Russia has just become more self-sufficient, and its economy is set for a rebound, even though last year's 4th quarter was a little "soggy" economically. Economic forcus: Russia

But that has not happened for Venezuela, which depends on oil sales for 95% of its revenue. Oil Prices pushing Venezuela into collapse

So you have societal collapse, coupled with punishing US sanctions, coupled with an election at the end of April.

So all conditions are ripe for yet another "color revolution", as happened in Ukraine in 2014, where the duly elected President, Yanukovich, was thrown under the proverbial bus, to enable the "annointing" of President Poroshenko.

Tillerson is being wildly disingenuous here, in attempting to "shrug off" the notion of the US wanting regime change in Venzuela.

Make no mistake; the next Venezuelan election (IF it happens), will be more crooked than a dog's hind leg, with the US government both covertly, and overtly, supporting the most pro-western candidate they can find; one who is completely comfortable with Western control of the oil, and the oil only sold in US dollars.
