And they’re betting on the Trump administration to help bring Nicolás Maduro’s reign to an end.

Of course, Venezuela’s military leaders have so far stuck with Maduro through months of U.S. military threats. And with the exception of über-hawks like Lindsey Graham, there seems to be nearly no appetite in Washington to actually use military force. If a “military option” is indeed “on the table,” as Trump-administration officials like to say, it’s wedged in a corner and unlikely to shake loose absent some seismic development.

This is another article you have to read between the lines; and I must admit I'm surprised at the Atlantic's pro-US presumption. My take-- for all it's worth-- is we're screwing around, squeezing the breath out of a country whose oil we cherish more than anything like International Law.

So correct me if I'm wrong, and you know something I don't which wouldn't take much actually. To me it all stinks. And again , the soap opera that the Mueller Report drama has become, along with the updates on Trump's witless tweets, has made it impossible to get a three dimensional sense of what's going on down there. I just know the bits and pieces of our policies in all the Latin American countries with something to steal, and it's so ugly I can't comprehend why people are more pissed about Venezuela.

Once again they come out with this crap of wanting a democracy in Venezuela. H*ll we don't have one here, but if we did we would most likely recognize Madura was duly elected as President of Venezuela. The US attempts to tell us the 2017 election in which Maduro was re-elected was fraught with disruptions and they are correct. It was the US who attempted to have all challengers to Maduro boycott the election in order to make the appearance of Maduro being a dictator, however Henri Falcon and Javier Bertucci decided to run anyway. Maduro wanted the UN to come in to oversee the election process, however the opposition said it wasn't necessary. The result, Maduro won by 5 million votes over Falcon who received the second most votes. As would be expected, the opposition cried "foul". Maduro was democratically elected President.

That brings in Guaido who never ran for anything (unless maybe he ran from a bully when he was a kid), but the US propaganda is telling us he is the democratically proclaimed President.

The only problem the US has with Venezuela is seeing oil profits go to help the population of the country rather than a select few as was the case prior to Chavez/Maduro being elected into the Presidency.
