ten signs us preparing to invade venezuela.jpgThe fact that the USA is reliving its failed policies in Latin America and in particular against Venezuela, can only result in the US regime being more aggressive. In recent weeks, the promotion of its hegemonic ambitions concealed by “universal principles” [1] has taken a very worrying course.

However, the US arsenal has missiles of all powers but is short of political arguments. [2]

The Venezuelan Government rejected this Sunday, February 11, the statements of the US Undersecretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Francisco Palmieri, who confirmed the intention of his country to intervene in the internal affairs of this nation.

By offering information on the tour of several Latin American countries by the head of US diplomacy, Rex Tillerson, Palmieri reiterated the pretensions of ending the constitutional government of President Nicolás Maduro under the pretext of alleged humanitarian aid. [3]

Let’s see those ten signs, which make up a pre-war or war scenario, indicated by Professor William Izarra, that should be denounced [4], and turn on solidarity alerts, as Bolivia’s President Evo Morales has done. [5]

1. Tour of Tillerson by narrow and submissive allied countries of the USA; declaration of direct attack on Venezuela in each country.

2. Presence of Kurt Tidd in Bogotá and his meetings with Santos, VP and Minister of Defense. Under the excuse of a meeting to review anti-drug measures, the central theme was the direct intervention plan in Venezuela using a multinational force led by Colombia and advised, monitored and logistically supported by the Southern Command.

3. Mobilizations of troops at the borders of Brazil and Colombia whose apparent and public causes are Venezuelan migrations, but the truth is to besiege Venezuela using the operation Pinchers.

4. Complete the Pincers decision favoring Guyana to decide by the International Tribunal on the Area in Complaint. This fact managed by the USA establishes a client relationship between the USA and Guyana whose gratitude is concretized in alliance and employment of their territory for the mobilization of military forces in the control of drug traffickers, an excuse that mimics their true reason for assault towards Venezuela when the rearguard action demanded it.

5. Holland with its islands A, B, C (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao) is the presence of NATO a few miles off the Venezuelan coast. Holland is pro-US and close ally for acts of hegemonic imposition.

6. The public statements (meeting with opposition sectors) of the Chargé d’Affaires of the USA (holds the rank of Ambassador in the State Department) without any respect for the diplomatic behavior of a foreign official, defining very clearly the call to take the government by the counterrevolutionary force that has the support of the USA.

7. The instructions given to the opposition to refrain from signing the Dominican Republic document.

8. The continuation of the tour of Tillerson by Julio Borges, thus qualified by the Chancellor, who following instructions from the State Department, continues his work as Ambassador of War requesting more sanctions against Venezuela.

9. The acceleration of the economic blockade on the part of the EU which constitutes the cordon of the world’s right of the western countries monitored by the USA to suffocate and bend the Venezuelan people that has not allowed to annihilate the Bolivarian Revolution.

10. Of all these events that occurred between January 15 and February 10, the most significant to consider for a possible invasion of Venezuela by a multinational force is the presence of the Commander of the Southern Command in Colombia (military factor for coercion). after the aggressive tour of the new oil hawk and raptor Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State of the USA. When the imperialist aggressions of the USA take place, the diplomatic action precedes the military act. This time I observe it. So my conclusion is that the US invasion attempt using a multinational force led by Colombia from the Southern Command is imminent. The other part that complements the above are the acts of resistance and against invasion of the revolutionary forces.

Tillerson’s Latin America Tour: A Campaign Against Venezuela

Source:  TeleSUR
February 8 2018

A campaign of repeated interference in the internal affairs of Venezuela

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s agenda purportedly aimed to address bilateral relations between different nations and the United States, but instead it became a campaign of repeated interference in the internal affairs of Venezuela.

Tillerson toured Latin America, maintaining the situation in Venezuela as the main agenda item in his visits to Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Colombia and finally, Jamaica.

Though the agenda in each nation referred to bilateral issues, one of the points reiterated during the visits was actions against Venezuela.

Interference Against Venezuela

During his stay in Mexico, Tillerson said that “the United States will use all its political, diplomatic and economic tools to confront the situation in Venezuela.”

These statements were rejected by the Cuban foreign minister which denounced the United States for wanting to overthrow the Venezuelan government

Military Actions

“In the history of Venezuela and in other countries of Latin America and South America the army has often been tha agent of change when things are bad, and the leadership can not longer serve the people,” said Tillerson just before embarking on his tour.

Given these statements, the Venezuelan National Armed Forces expressed their support for the Venezuelan president. At the same time, they criticized that the U.S. official of having “no moral authority to issue any kind of judgments on the internal politics of the South American country.”

Looking to End of the Government of Nicolas Maduro and isolate to Venezuela

Tillerson said that “it would be easier if President Nicolas Maduro decides to leave power on his own.”

“If the kitchen gets too hot for him, I am sure he has some friends in Cuba who can give him a nice farm on the beach and he can have a nice life there,” said the Secretary of State.

Even Brazil’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Aloysio Nunes – hardly a friend of Venezuela – responded by saying that the change in Venezuela will be made by the people and not by the outsiders.

Seizure or oil blockade

“The situation is becoming quite dire in Venezuela, so one of the aspects of considering sanctioning oil is what effect would it have on the Venezuelan people, and is it a step that might bring this to an end, to a more rapid end,” said Tillerson while in Argentina.

President Maduro said he was prepared to defend freedom and sovereignty, after learning that Argentina and the United States of America were looking into imposing oil sanctions against Venezuela.

“Argentina has just threatened us with an oil embargo. We are prepared,” said the Venezuelan head of state. “Venezuela, workers of the oil industry, imperialism threatens us. We are ready to be free and nothing and nobody is going to stop us.”

Interference in the Venezuelan elections

In his visit to Jamaica – which was the last stop during his tour – the U.S. Secretary pointed out that the United States’ intention was “to act with all possible effort to persuade the Venezuelan Government.”

Tillerson also warned of possible measures towards neighboring countries as part of the pressure on the Maduro government.

The top U.S. diplomat’s visit to five countries of Latin America and the Caribbean that was supposed to be about strengthening bilateral relations with each nation and evaluate issues of interest, was marked by persistent interference in the affairs of Venezuela.

Sabotage to democracy in Venezuela

Once again fulfilling its dismal mission, the United States has just sabotaged a laboriously reached agreement between the government and the Venezuelan opposition in the dialogues of Santo Domingo.

The letter that on February 7 made public the former president of the Spanish government José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero reveals his surprise – and, in a more subtle way, his indignation – before the “unexpected” resignation on the part of the representatives of the opposition to sign the agreement when everything was ready for the protocol ceremony in which the good news would be announced publicly.

As revealed in the letter RZ says that after two years of dialogue and discussions an agreement was reached to set in motion “an electoral process with guarantees and consensus on the date of the elections, the position on the sanctions against Venezuela, the conditions of the Truth Commission, cooperation in the face of social and economic challenges, the commitment to normalization institutional and the guarantees for the fulfillment of the agreement, and the commitment for a fully normalized operation and development of democratic politics. ”

A potentially gigantic step

This agreement, had it been signed by the opposition, would put an end to the political crisis that, with its economic and social repercussions, had unleashed one of the most serious crises in Venezuela in its history. It was also a gigantic step towards the normalization of a regional situation increasingly stressed by the resonances of the Venezuelan conflict.

The pretext surprisingly used by the ashamed opposition was the renewed demand that the presidential elections be monitored by the Lima Group, a collection of countries (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Santa Lucia) whose governments compete to see who shows the greatest servility when it comes to obeying the orders issued by the White House to attack Venezuela.

The Lima Group is not an institution such as UNASUR, the OAS or others. The document prepared in the Dominican Republic put in the hands of the General Secretariat of the UN to organize the oversight of the presidential election, an infinitely more serious and prestigious institution than the Lima Group – a group where the narco-presidents abound; where the coup-makers like the leaders from Brazil and Honduras are blessed by the United States; where governments exist such as the one in Mexico that made electoral fraud an art of incomparable efficiency, or the one in Chile, whose greatest democratic achievement is to have disappointed its people so much that less than half of the electorate went to vote in the last presidential election.

Nevertheless, the demand that this unpresentable group of governments be in charge of guaranteeing the “transparency and honesty” of the presidential elections in Venezuela was the pretext used to boycott an agreement that had cost so much work to seal. How tcan this sudden and unexpected change in the opinion of the Venezuelan opposition be explained?

The model is Libya or Iraq

To answer this question you have to travel to Washington. As was foreseeable for the White House, the only acceptable solution is the dismissal of Nicolás Maduro and a “regime change”, even if this option entails the danger of a civil war and huge human and economic costs. In other words, the model is Libya, or Iraq, and in no way can there be an agreement re transition between the government and the opposition, or even less, can there be an acceptance of the survival of the Bolivarian government in exchange for some gestures of moderation on the part of Caracas.

From the geopolitical perspective that informs all the actions of the White House, no moral scruples can interfere in the project of putting Venezuela under the yoke of the United States, that sick obsession of the empire to turn it into a North American protectorate a country that has the largest oil reserves in the world. planet and a territory endowed with immense natural resources.

For the Washington hawks any option other than that is pure sentimentality, and if the politicians of the Venezuelan opposition believed that these negotiations would be if not endorsed at least tolerated by the White House they fell into a childish illusion: believing that the United States cares about democracy, or what they call “humanitarian crisis”, or the rule of law in Venezuela. To the empire these questions are completely irrelevant when one speaks of the immense majority of the “countries of shit” that constitute the periphery of the world capitalist system. So it was no coincidence that the order to refrain from signing agreements coincide with the visit to Rex Tillerson to Colombia, and was President Juan M. Santos who had the dishonorable task of transmitting the ukaseimperial to the representatives of the opposition gathered in Santo Domingo.

A military solution – Tillerson’s tour

How will this story continue? Washington is tightening the rope to make a “military solution” inevitable in Venezuela. That is why Tillerson toured 5 Latin American and Caribbean countries, in an effort to coordinate on a continental level the actions of what could well be the beginning of a final assault against the homeland of Bolívar and Chávez.

The Southern Command is enlisting personnel of the United States Air Force in Panama without another credible purpose than to attack Venezuela. Meanwhile, the diplomatic and media offensive is spreading all over the world. The European Parliament has given new samples of its putrefaction process and redoubles the sanctions against Venezuela, while the Latin American and Caribbean servants of Washington are embittered with aggression. On February 8, the Chilean government announced the indefinite suspension of its participation in the Venezuelan dialogue because, according to La Moneda, “minimum conditions have not been agreed for a democratic presidential election and institutional normalization.”

It seems that, as José Martí once said, in Venezuela the “hour of the ovens is arriving and it is not necessary to see more than light.”
