Maduro Says US, Colombia Prepare Provocation, Mobilises Venezuelan Army

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said he had information that Colombia and the United States were planning a provocation on the Bolivarian Republic's western border and called on all staff of the country's armed forces to be prepared for battle.

"I have information that Colombia, together with the US Southern Command are planning to launch another provocation at the Venezuelan border with Colombia. All staff of Venezuela's armed forces must be combat ready", Maduro said on Friday during his meeting with the country's transportation employees broadcast via Twitter.

The president added that the provocations served to incite a military conflict on the Venezuela-Colombia border in order to draw attention away from the protests taking place in Colombia

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope like hell Maduro is wrong in his assessment here; that being said, however, given the probable attempted assassination attempt on his life last year Potential assassination attempt made on Venezuela's President Maduro, August 2018, I don't blame the guy for getting more than a little bit concerned here.

Look to israel (a US "ally" [that bombed the USS Liberty]) as part of this provocation.
