Venezuelans Face Rising Threat Of War.


by Jerry Alatalo

omeone famously (and accurately) described the February 2014 U.S.-planned coup in Ukraine, – which overthrew the democratically elected government of Victor Yanukovich and led to civil war – as the most obvious, blatant coup in world history.

People might remember the January 2019 U.S.-planned coup attempt in Venezuela as even more obvious.

In 2014 and Ukraine, the Obama/Clinton State Department and Victoria Nuland appointed the new president “Yats”, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who shortly afterwards resigned and was replaced by Petro Poroshenko. Ms. Nuland, infamous for her “F@%k the EU!” and “Yats is the guy” unforgettable assertions – caught on an intercepted phone call which quickly went viral on the internet, spoke in front of a group of corporate energy bigs and noted the expenditure of $5,000,000,000 in U.S. taxpayer monies for Ukraine.

In 2019, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence named Juan Guaido the new president of Venezuela, Guaido swearing himself into office, and thus sharing with “Yats” the distinct achievement of appointment as leader of a government overthrown via illegal coup by the big boys from Washington, D.C.. Ukraine is, as the phrase goes, a “done deal”; Venezuelans can hopefully avoid repeating what happened in Ukraine: deadly, unnecessary civil war.

As yet, no Trump administration official has, like Ms. Nuland had done, shared the number of billions in taxpayers’ dollars spent on the effort to overthrow democratically elected President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, – however, one might estimate much more than $5 billion, given Venezuela possesses the largest oil reserves on planet Earth.

Whatever the number of $billions, John Bolton seems confident in the investment. He went on Fox News business media casually talking about U.S. oil corporations taking over Venezuela’s oil production, as if it were already a “done deal”.

Similarly, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is referring to Venezuela’s elected top politician as “former President Maduro”, as if the over six million people who voted for him and lifted him into the highest office (for the second time) no longer exist.

That Venezuela has stopped taking $ as payment and has influence in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and considering the possibility that OPEC nations could accelerate the trend of decreased use of U.S. dollars for oil purchases, people might get a better sense of why Donald Trump and his administration are so anxious to place Juan Guaido in the Venezuela big chair.

OPEC consists of Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Republic of the Congo, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela. Unfortunately for Americans, their governments have, – especially since the false flag of September 11, 2001 and intended over-17-year fraudulent “war of terror” – alienated much of the rest of the world, and severely tarnished America’s reputation, through implementing massively deadly war as the means of increasing business markets share and profits.

Like the alcohol-addicted men in small towns whose propensity for needlessly beating up others leads to their having to relocate … with reputation burnt up in the Middle East-North Africa region, Venezuela became the easily-predicted obvious next target for the Trump administration.

The people of Venezuela face the very real possibility of experiencing what the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen have become forced to endure since 9/11: the completely unnecessary nightmare of horrific war, violence, displacement, injury and destruction.

The sad part of the story is that 9/11 and all the human-tragedy, bogus “terrorist” wars of choice never needed to happen. Nations and corporations doing fair trade for reasonable profits while willing to follow international law and embracing non-intervention philosophy? …

Perhaps the United States of America can begin repairing with sincerity the self-inflicted damage to its global reputation. Perhaps not, but one thing is for certain.

The good people of Venezuela would greatly appreciate such a path in these days and nights of their overwhelming worry.

Peace.

    1. Hello Rosaliene,

      People familiar with the Bhagavad Gita have some understanding of those who become willing to harm innocent others for money and power. From chapter 16 of Bhagavad Gita:

      Persons of demonic nature do not know what to do and what not to do. They neither have purity nor good conduct nor truthfulness.
      They say: The world is unreal, without a substratum, without a God, and without an order. Sexual union of man and woman alone and nothing else causes the world.

      Adhering to this wrong atheist view, these degraded souls — with small intellect and cruel deeds are born as enemies for the destruction of the world.
      Filled with insatiable desires, hypocrisy, pride, and arrogance; holding wrong views due to delusion; they act with impure motives.

      Obsessed with endless anxiety lasting until death, considering sense gratification their highest aim, convinced that sense pleasure is everything;
      Bound by hundreds of ties of desire and enslaved by lust and anger; they strive to obtain wealth by unlawful means for the fulfillment of sensual pleasures. They think:
      This has been gained by me today, I shall fulfill this desire, I have this much wealth, and will have more wealth in the future;
      That enemy has been slain by me, and I shall slay others also. I am the Lord. I am the enjoyer. I am successful, powerful, and happy;
      I am rich and born in a noble family. Who is equal to me? I shall perform sacrifice, I shall give charity, and I shall rejoice. Thus deluded by ignorance;
      Bewildered by many fancies; entangled in the net of delusion; addicted to the enjoyment of sensual pleasures; they fall into a foul hell.

      Self-conceited, stubborn, filled with pride and intoxication of wealth; they perform service only in name, for show, and not according to scriptural injunction.
      These malicious people cling to egoism, power, arrogance, lust, and anger; and hate Me who dwells in their own bodies and those of others.
      I hurl these haters, cruel, sinful, and mean people into the cycles of rebirth in the womb of demons again and again.
      O Arjuna, entering the wombs of demons birth after birth, the deluded ones sink to the lowest hell without ever attaining Me (until their minds change for the better by the causeless mercy of the Lord).

  1. The western media propaganda campaign against Venezuela is even more nausea-inducing than usual. This morning the BBC featured an analyst from some CIA-linked think tank who stated (unchallenged) that Maduro runs the largest drug cartel in Latin America.

    1. Hello Stuart,

      The aristocracy, – the uber-rich war-deciders Gore Vidal congratulated for their ability to remain unseen, outside of the public’s awareness – gave orders to go big-time on the Venezuela takeover and cover all the bases. The financial/banking vise of economic warfare is getting tightened on Venezuelan society to an unprecedented historic level.

    1. Hello Ray,

      It’s quite a coincidence that we had just reblogged Mr. de Zayas’ post of his Independent interview, only seconds before opening your comment! 🙂 Hope you are doing well, Ray. Thank you for sharing those very insightful article links. Peace.

      1. Hi Jerry, Yes, quite a coincidence. I posted both articles to my Public Face Book page a few days ago.

        Glad to see you still writing. I just posted an article to my Blog, but I didn’t write it. It was written by Jonathan Cook who lives and writes from Nazareth on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict mostly, but also on other important issues.

  2. Good Day Jerry,

    I saw your comment in ICH ‘Saker Interview with Michael Hudson on Venezuela.’ I’ve been exasperated many of my comments on Venezuela have been deleted in the CBC News site and the latest on the ICH article.

    The several comments the CBC deleted can be seen in my Public Face Book page, https://www.facebook.com/ray.j.cormier

    I am at a loss to understand what ICH found so offensive in my comment? Any ideas?

    There are 3 versions of The Lord’s Prayer.
    1. Forgive us OUR sins as we forgive those who sin against us.
    2. Forgive us OUR trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us

    3. Forgive us OUR debts as we forgive our debtors.

    Reading this article suggests #3 is the best option for OUR Times

    US Dollar=Image of the Beast

    Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
    […] And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (US Global dominance and Imperialism since WWII)
    […] And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (the US always claims to be the good power, exceptional, innocent and unblemished like the lamb)
    […] And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, (Nukes=destructive fire. The US is the only nation that used them in FIRE and FURY)
    […] And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed (money talks, and this world has seen many people killed in the Nations that have tried to get away from the US Dollar)
    […] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (money is the medium and the US puts more Economic Sanctions on other Nations as an Act of War than any other Nation)
    Revelation 13

    Peace

    1. Hello Ray,

      One could see why CBC would block any criticism of the international money system, as that media organization is fully on-board with the billionaire global domination agenda. With respect to Information Clearing House, the matter of screening religion-focused commentaries is much more difficult to come up with conjectured explanation, so instead of guessing, we’d suggest the comments person(s) at ICH are operating in a way to discourage, say, in the spirit of separation of church and state – the joining of church and independent media. Our guess is that your more secular commentary absent the literal verses from the Bible would have passed through. 🙂 Just a guess…

      But, yes, although the dollar has been used as a weapon for many decades, there seems a rapid intensification of shocking events/reports revealing longtime secrets of the money masters is underway. One senses an imminent “the Emperor has no clothes” moment. Hopefully that historic moment comes to pass before circumstances degenerate to the point of major war. Thanks.

      Peace.

      1. What an upside-down World. The publication Russia Insider had no problem with the comment in the discussion ‘By Threats, Sanctions, and War, Washington Rules the World’

        I don’t know if you followed the link to the latest article posted to my Blog upstream. I thought the title ‘CONTINUING UNLESS WE RADICALLY RE-EVALUATE AND CHANGE’ too cumbersome, and changed it the more realistic, ‘THE PATH TO MASADA-HOLOCAUST II.’
        The old title still leads to it.
