War Preparations Against Venezuela As Election Nears

Venezuela has the world’s largest proven oil reserves and because Venezuela has set an example of breaking from US dominance of the region and challenging capitalism.

In addition, economic sanctions have pushed Venezuela to have closer relations with Russia and China to circumvent US sanctions. The US does not want these global rivals in what it has considered it’s backyard since the Monroe Doctrine.

Finally, the US is concerned with Venezuela’s new cryptocurrency, which will launch within days and be backed by 5.3 billion barrels of oil worth $267 billion. The cryptocurrency is a bid to offset Venezuela’s deep financial crisis. This threatens US economic domination.

One way to start a war would be a cross-border dispute between Venezuela and Colombia, Brazil or Guyana. On February 12, the Maritime Herald reported that Admiral Kurt Tidd, head of the US Southern Command, arrived in Colombia just two days after the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with President Juan Manuel Santos as part of Tillerson’s unprecedented regime change tour. Tidd met with Colombian Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas and other senior officials to coordinate efforts around “regional stability” with a focus on Venezuela.

The Maritime Herald also reports US troops coming to Colombian military bases, paramilitaries coming to Colombian towns along the Venezuelan border, plans for “a joint naval force between the United States, Colombia and Mexico,” and arrival of a contingent of 415 members of the United States Air Force to Panama to create support and logistics points for the operation against Venezuela. Also important are two fast-acting US military bases installed in the communities of Vichada and Leticia, Colombia, bordering Venezuela.

Both Colombia and Brazil have deployed more troops to their borders with Venezuela. Colombian President Santos ordered “the deployment of 3000 additional security personnel to the Venezuelan border. This figure included 2,120 more soldiers.” The decision came the day before officials from the US Southern Command met in Colombia to “discuss security cooperation.” Brazil also announced plans to “double its border patrols on the Venezuelan frontier.” The excuse for these increased deployments was due to Venezuelan migrants crossing the border into Colombia and Brazil.

To calm these concerns, President Maduro called for a meeting between Venezuelan authorities and Colombia over security concerns along their border. The Colombian government estimates that 450,000 Venezuelan migrants have entered the country in the last 18 months. Maduro said that official numbers did not equate to a “massive exodus” and reminded Colombia that during the Colombian civil war with the FARC, 5.6 million Colombians crossed the border to make Venezuela their home.

The corporate intelligence firm, Stratfor, which works closely with the US government, recently published a report that could be laying the groundwork for a border dispute. Stratfor wrote that Brazilian intelligence officials are going to meet with Guyana’s officials to warn them that Venezuela is planning to attack Guyana. There is a long-term dispute over land between Venezuela and Guyana that is being litigated before the International Court of Justice. The report includes a questionable claim that there is an “ongoing dialogue with the Trump administration over the terms of President Nicolas Maduro and his party’s departure from power.” The reality is that President Maduro is preparing for the April election.

In response to these actions, President Maduro announced the Venezuelan armed forces will carry out military exercises on February 24 and 25 in “defense” of the nation to fine tune the movement of “tanks, missiles and helicopters as part of the nation’s defense strategy.”

Challenging capitalism worked out pretty well for Venezuela, didn't it?

They have to get the oil out for it to be of any use, and they can't even do that.

It's far easier to find out what the USA is doing by looking at foreign press and factoring in their agendas.

Next step is to see whether the border war materializes and whether USA feels that it must provide this and that out of the supposed the generosity of the USA heart according to Fox, Rush, Breitbart, etc.

Madura is a petty dictator whose regime will collapse the moment we decide it’s more important to make him go away than to have access to cheap Venezuelan crude oil. Worldwide sanctions imposed on his oil exports would mean he no longer has the money to pay his coalition and his army, which would mean they’d turn on him and he’d be done. That’s how dictatorships work! You must have a steady source of money that is not tied to the people which which to pay the coalition which keeps the people down. Oil works great for this and has been a staple in many a dictator’s recipe!

When human rights are being abused and mass starvation takes hold, we should help the innocent people. Why do you have a problem with that?

Yeah sure. Our enemies who hate and want to kill us are the best sources of information.

You mean by inflating their dollar into extinction through socialist programs, ruining their ability to export oil, and starving? Yes, that will show the US!!

Maduro's days are numbered, we don't need to be involved.

The Opposition will fuck it all up again by being Greedy Little Shits unwilling to make the most token nationalist/socialist concessions, and we'll rinse wash and repeat in a decade with another Left Wing Coup.
