Will the Corporate Media Retract Its Venezuela Lies?

"The New York Times published a video on Saturday that disproves reporting by the U.S. establishment media that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro’s forces had set ablaze trucks filled with humanitarian aid. While U.S. officials and media parroted the story as a provocation of war, some independent journalists have argued for weeks that the story was false.

The claim that Maduro had burned aid on the Francisco de Paula Santander International Bridge on Feb. 23 was repeated and used as a way to catalyze support for further U.S. involvement in Venezuela.

Like to remind everyone, the Russians were invited, so it's not an "Independence Day" scenario.

35 tons of cargo? I see more than that dragged off the road every week on "Highway Though Hell".

Capitalism in South America is just as bad --arguably, worse. In Brazil there is no healthcare system except for the very wealthy and you can't even call 911 no matter who you are. What the heck is so 'good' about a system that sets every man against his neighbor and puts everyone's hands at each other's throats? 'Capitalism, red in tooth and nail'--as the saying goes. The only way open for Third-World countries is to concentrate on community. To hell with the United States; our model doesn't work everywhere. It's time we got over that.

Venezuela’s Guaido takes to streets in military uprising

"....Guaidó said troops who had taken to the streets were protecting Venezuela’s constitution. He said that in the coming hours he would release a list of top commanders supporting the uprising.

“The armed forces have taken the right decision,” said Guaidó. “With the support of the Venezuelan people and the backing of our constitution they are on the right side of history.”

As events unfolded, governments from around the world expressed a mix of support for Guaidó while reiterating calls to avoid violent confrontration.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton, in a message directed at Padrino on Twitter, said the armed forces “must protect the Constitution and the Venezuelan people.”

Meanwhile, Spain’s caretaker government urged restraint.......

Venezuela could be at a tipping point.

The US is blaming Russia and Cuba for propping up Maduro

just as he might have been preparing to go into exile. Startling developments @NBCNightlyNews @NBCNews

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

sure, Maduro was all ready to give up his power to Gauido.

Let's hope the few remaining rational people in Trump's circle remind him of Afghanistan and Iraq, along with all the other places we have US forces.  This will be far, far, far more difficult than what US did in Panama or Grenada.
