The shipment seizure comes just days after Trump signed an executive order Monday that imposes a near-total blockade on government assets in that country, which includes an embargo against food suppliers, among other basic inputs. This is the first time in 30 years that Washington has taken such an action against a sovereign country.

'Venezuela denounces before the world that a boat that holds 25 thousand tons of Soya, for food production in our country, has been seized in the Panama Canal, due to the criminal blockade imposed by Donald Trump,' the vice president said in a tweet. 

'Venezuela calls on the UN to stop this serious aggression by DonaldTrump's govt against our country, which constitutes a massive violation of the human rights of the entire Venezuelan people, by attempting to impede their right to food.'

THANKS David for your time and efforts. I appreciate what you have and are doing. Well done.

Venezuelan people deserve better than this. It is unfortunate to suffocate them many of whom are children and elderly.

Many illegal sanctions should be lifted.

Hi, there, Mohammad. Good to see that you're feeling more comfortable

with your participation with us foul creatures here on Rob's OpEdNews.

As we often see in our next door neighborhood, Quebec (keh-bec, not

Kwee-bek) "Je me souviens" paraphrased perhaps 'we will never forget.'

Persia means more than the Towers of Babylon or the Hebrew religion.

The US is a criminal rogue state. The weaker the empire gets, the meaner and more vindictive its ruling class becomes. The world can't be rid of them too soon.

What a perfect action to take against a country you're accusing of humanitarian crimes. (The U.S. even went as far as to say one reason they were doing this was because Maduro was starving his own people. You just can't make this stuff up.)

If only the U.N. had any real power in this alternate reality we've entered.

Almost unbelievable, isn't it, DA? Damned Maduro - starving his own people.
