Support For Guaido Weakens As Weary Venezuelans Tire Of Violent Clashes

After a week of street demonstrations that left four dead and hundreds injured, the Venezuelan people are growing weary of opposition leader Juan Guaido's attempts to win military support for an ant-Maduro insurrection.

And that weariness started to show this weekend, when many questioned the wisdom of returning to the streets on Saturday when Guaido called for another day of street protests, according to the FT. On Twitter, many of Guaido's supporters slammed him for offering up the Venezuelan people as "cannon fodder."

Perhaps sensing the waning support for his campaign, Guaido told the BBC in an interview Monday that he was considering asking the US for support in the form of a boots-on-the-ground military intervention. Speaking to the BBC's Nick Bryant, he said he would "evaluate all options" to finally depose Maduro, while the US has hinted that it "all options are still on the table," hinting that an invasion of Venezuela remained a possibility.
