    Apparently the guy involved was some traitor who defected to the US a few years ago. Guess he came back with some citizens who all dressed up as military and attacked a base. They were quickly quelled but the military is now on patrol with even tanks.

    Does playing air apply under conditions of foreign meddling to instigate regime change. I consider emergency measures to be legitimate
    and constitutions are much like used toilet paper in spite of all the reverence they get.

    From an intelligence perspective we have watched in my seven months in office a continued deterioration. Maduro is continuing to assert more power, inflict more pain on the people of Venezuela, you can see the beginning of fissures among various groups. What I believe the president is trying to accomplish this week was to give the Venezuelan people hope and opportunity to create a situation where democracy can be restored. The intelligence makes very clear that the Maduro regime continues to put snipers in towers and do things that are horrible, repressive and the American policy is to work with our Latin American partners to try and restore democracy.

    Venezuela could very much become a risk for the United States of America. The Cubans are there; the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there. This is something that has a risk of getting to a very very bad place, so America needs to take this very seriously.”

    Of course it's. Latin American states breaking away from the plantation is a threat to American hegemony. Russian/Chinese companies along with Venezuela's PDVSA controlling Venezuela's energy business is a threat to the petro-dollar as well. Rosneft expansion is a MAJOR threat to Exxon too since its tentacles are far reaching now....plus a great many things in the realm of geopolitics and economics when it comes to Venezuela. The new wave of neoliberals in Brazil/Argentina won't last more than a decade tops and everyone knows it. It's do or die now...

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo: Iran, Hezbollah Are in Venezuela

    As for snipers in buildings....where have I seen that before?

    I like this new CIA head. He talks a lot and projects a lot with his comments...

    Everyone is in Venezuela......including America's vassel states in the region (extensive list)/Europe (Spain/France/Germany)/Middle-East=Israel/Saudi Arabia.

    Edit: more on RT's article:

    We are very hopeful that there can be a transition in Venezuela and we the CIA is doing its best to understand the dynamic there, so that we can communicate to our State Department and to others.”

    Hehe...

    Make America great again . Like great Britania . The hemmpire . I still get goose pimply , thinking about the greatness of the great great British ( American ) hemmpire ! Quick get me an excuse ! A pretext . I need another medal . And you need your profits . What? There isn't one ? Don't be stupid . There is always a pretext . Just say that guy over there , what's his name , got bad fashion sense . Needs a makeover . Remember make America great again ........

    It is a habitual thing . The culture of imperialism , can not be negotiated with . It is not amenable to dialogue . It will not be satisfied with less . It will absolutely not stop . Until he has it all . Or nothing . Like a habitual gambler in Las Vegas casino .

    So they want to start a war with Korea and Venezuela and China and Iran and .........simultaneously ? What a wonderful idea . But oooops ! They know now ! They may not attack simultaneously . Darned ! We may just have to make sure that they do . Yes you need balls for this . But what is the alternative ? Being picked off one by one ? I think Kim and ....and ....and ........need to see each other . Arrange for a musketeer pact . One for all ........and you know the rest . A simultaneous defence against the yank . Help make America great again . The greatest fail in the world . Now where is that phone ? .........

    The yanks pick on people . One by one . At a time of weakness . Internal political turmoil . An opportunity . They then get the other bullies , their mates ( NATO allies ) to join in . To beat up on the little guy . Why don't we make a military defence pact ? Of all the non aligned nations . Give it a snazzy name .Like : NAMTO ! The non aligned military treaty organisations .

    Not everyone has nukes to deter yanks . So yanks simply use superior conventional forces to bully smaller nations . But pooling resources and acting together . Will nullify their advantage . Good on Venezuela to carry out defensive maneuvers . Perhaps others can join in and carry out simultaneous maneuvers too !

    SOUTHCOM "Masterstroke" - Plan to Overthrow the Venezuelan Dictatorship.

    Post  ATLASCUB on Tue May 15, 2018 9:40 pm

    Document (scroll down): http://www.portalalba.org/index.php/areas/internacional-geopolitica/imperialismo/16887-el-momento-ha-llegado-el-plan-unitas-lix-seria-el-golpe-final-contra-venezuela

    Write up: https://libya360.wordpress.com/2018/05/13/masterstroke-the-us-plan-to-overthrow-the-venezuelan-government/

    One of many they've drafted...CIA/State Dept have the actual "masterstroke" (different obv) carrying out most of what they actually can along the same lines - same objective.

    The opinion of the admiral and his cohorts who helped him draft it are always a good read since the ones drafted by CIA analyst are just as bad and are actually acted upon.

    For those that are still blind to the fact of what's actually going on and fall for simplistic media narratives.

    One thing to point out is that the military option is not too different from the one applied to Syria. Although I still think a military option will be a massive mistake for them - not so much the U.S short term, but for their lackies whose grip on power will deteriorate (despite the initial strengthening that comes with it). Both Temer and Macri will in one way or another sink.

    Seven people injured in Venezuelan president’s murder attempt

    Nicolas Maduro was not injured

    MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Seven people have been injured in Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s murder attempt; the president himself was not injured, Venezuela’s Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said, according to the Venezuelan radio station Union Radio.

    "President Maduro was not injured in the murder attempt," the web site of the radio station quoted the minister as saying. "Unfortunately, seven staff members were injured." "He is working as usual," Rodriguez said.

    "Keep calm, our President Nicolas Maduro is well, as are all the political and military top revolutionary government," head of the Bicentenario Del Pueblo bank Miguel Perez Abad tweeted.

    The attempted murder of the head of state was carried out with the use of drones carrying explosives. They were activated while Maduro was speaking at the ceremony for the 81st anniversary of the establishment of the Bolivarian National Guard. The drones were eliminated, the minister said. According to preliminary information, several cadets from the Bolivarian National Guard were injured.

    Rodriguez also reported that Maduro addressed the people a few minutes later.

    Venezuelan president blames Colombian president for his attempted murder

    "Everything indicates to the rights, the Venezuelan far-rights together with the Colombian far-rights", Maduro said

    TASS, August 5. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has blamed Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos for involvement in his attempted murder.

    "Everything indicates to the rights, the Venezuelan far-rights together with the Colombian far-rights, and the name of Juan Manuel Santos is behind this attempted murder," Maduro said in a televised national address broadcasted by state television.

    The Venezuelan leader added that he was calm during the incident, as he fully trusts the nation and the armed forces. "And God protects me, so I am alive and I win," Maduro said.

    Venezuelan Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez earlier said that Maduro’s attempted murder was committed with the use of several drones with explosives. They were activated while the head of state was delivering his speech at the ceremony for the 81st anniversary of the establishment of the Bolivarian National Guard. Rodriguez specified that seven law enforcement officers were injured and the drones were eliminated. Neither the state leader, not the top government officials were injured in the explosion, he said.

    Moscow strongly condemns Venezuelan leader’s assassination attempt

    The Russian Foreign Ministry said that these steps are aimed at destabilizing the situation in the country


    MOSCOW, August 5. /TASS/. Moscow strongly condemns the assassination attempt against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, stressing that these steps are aimed at destabilizing the situation in the country, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

    "We strongly condemn the assassination attempt against the Venezuelan president carried out on August 4 this year, in which seven people were wounded," the ministry said, stressing that "it is absolutely unacceptable to use the methods of terrorists as tools of political struggle."

    "It is obvious that these steps are designed to destabilize the situation in the country after the recent session of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, which outlined priority steps on restoring national economy," the ministry said. "We are convinced that political disagreements should be settled only by peaceful and democratic means."

    The ministry expressed solidarity with the Venezuelan people and also wished a speedy recovery to those injured in the attack.

    Venezuelan Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez earlier said that Maduro’s assassination attempt was committed with the use of several drones packed with explosives. They detonated while the head of state was delivering his speech at the ceremony for the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard’s establishment. Seven law enforcement officers were injured. Neither the state leader nor the top government officials were injured in the explosion, he said.

    The Venezuelan president said several participants of his attempted murder were detained and accused the Colombian leader of being behind the plot. Maduro also said some those who planned to kill him live in the United States.
