A week or so ago, Roy Batty wrote an article saying that the US was maybe going to lead an intervention into Venezuela to overthrow the government and create a massive refugee crisis.
I was like “nah, this is just some South America shit, neighboring countries are mad about regional destabilization, this isn’t going to become a thing” and refused to publish his article.
So, I should publicly apologize for this private misjudgment.
But that is the kind of guy I am.
No really, I’m actually a complete asshole, I act like Steve Jobs with my employees, only I don’t pay like Steve Jobs. I’m a combination of Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos. Because I make everyone work in a cage, while I scream at them that they are worthless.
But yeah, he was right, I was wrong.
This is all escalating very quickly.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has claimed that Donald Trump ordered the Colombian government and mafia to assassinate him, but insisted that he’s well protected from the threat of assassination.
“Without a doubt, Donald Trump gave the order to kill me, told the Colombian government, the Colombian mafia, to kill me. If something happens to me, Donald Trump and Colombian President Ivan Duque will be responsible,” Maduro told RIA Novosti.
Maduro, however, expressed confidence in his country’s security services.
“I am always protected by the Venezuelan people, we have a good intelligence service,” he said.
That would have been Presidents Kushner and Bolton that ordered the assassination.
Not white knighting for Trump, just saying that the claim he runs America is giving the guy way more credit than he deserves.
Russia is saying they will defend Venezuela.
Russia will defend its interests in Venezuela within the international law using “all mechanisms available to us,” Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, told Russian media on Tuesday.
Russia has kept close ties with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and has extended loans to Venezuela, including oil firm Rosneft lending money to Venezuela’s state-held firm PDVSA. Rosneft has extended $6 billion of loans to PDVSA, which needs to be fully redeemed in crude oil supplies by the end of this year.
According to S&P Global Platts, as of November 2018, Venezuela had $3.1 billion outstanding loan to repay to Rosneft. The Russian company also has five joint upstream projects with PDVSA in Venezuela.
However, the US Treasury slapped another round of sweeping sanctions against PDVSA on Monday, in order to “help prevent further diverting of Venezuela’s assets by Maduro and preserve these assets for the people of Venezuela.”
The US backed last week Juan Guaido, the chairman of the National Assembly, as the legitimate president of Venezuela, after Guaido declared himself interim president.
And that means this isn’t just some “it’s just a prank bro” situation where you can easily topple some shitholer communist.
Instead, it has a very great potential to become a complete and total clusterfuck.
There would be an estimated 8 million refugees if things went totally south.
According to the Jews themselves.
A new Brookings Institution study forecasting that the number of Venezuelan refugees will skyrocket to 8 million should trigger alarm bells in the United States and Latin America. It would be the world’s biggest mass exodus in recent times — bigger than the Syrian refugee crisis — and could destabilize the region.
The study, by Brookings’ Venezuelan-Israeli resident economist Dany Bahar and researcher Douglas Barrios, says its projection includes the 3 million Venezuelans who, according to the United Nations, have already left their country because of its humanitarian crisis. Most of the refugees have fled to Colombia.
So five million more.
And the US would open them with open arms.
Just tell them to march on up in caravans.
And of course, when they come marching up, no one is going to know if they’re Venezuelans or not. All of these shitholers from these other shitholes will say they’re escaping communism, and the boomers will do as they did with the Cuban escapees.
Because anyone fleeing the collapse of a communist country must be a freedom loving natural conservative.
How is This Even Possible?
This just jumped up all of the sudden.
After the shutdown was unfortunately canceled without any explanation and Trump gave Nancy everything, we all of the sudden have nonstop headlines about how we have to invade Venezuela.
Because of human rights and democracy.
These people have been living under communism for two fucking decades, then all of the sudden it’s time to invade and free them from themselves?
The original statement of “oh there’s an opposition leader, the other countries in Latin America support him, the people are still rioting because they’re starving” was like “okay, whatever.”
Then the media machine started going into action and they roll out Elliot Abrams and it’s like WAIT WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED.
I don’t think we’re actually going to literally invade the country.
But Bolton’s note said 5,000 troops.
Its not clear how many troops Russia is sending, but if America is sending troops, so are they.
WHAT IS THIS?
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING????
