'The moment Maduro leaves, everybody's going to raise their hands and [say], 'Take me, I'm the next president of Venezuela.' It would be forty-plus people who believe they're the rightful heir to Maduro,' Pompeo reportedly said in the audio. 

'We were trying to support various religious... institutions to get the opposition to come together,'

He [Maduro] doesn't trust Venezuelans a lick. I don't blame him. He shouldn't. They were all plotting against him. Sadly, they were all plotting for themselves.'

Thanks David for your time and efforts.

Rule of force and illegal sanctions should not be used to bring about any change. After all, the world should not be considered a jungle to manipulate.

When will this mentality of thinking whatever another sovereign nation possesses is our stop? Venezuela could be a rich, flourishing nation if left alone. It took Chavez, along with Maduro, to turn the country around for the population as prior, and the Presstitute Media Propagandists (PMP) fail to point out, citizens were living in cardboard shacks, starving, had no healthcare, the education system was dismal at best, but the White elitists were living well. Upon Chavez and Maduro taking over housing was provided, healthcare was provided, people were raised from poverty, their education system was built. The nation was moving out of an impoverished state, but the United States could not stand for a sovereign nation having the audacity of using profits from a resource like oil to go to the people of that nation rather than to a select few so in order to "silently" disrupt any progress of well being for that nation the United States had to prove to the World Socialism does not work, therefore they had to use the PMP to sell how Chavez, as a dictator, was ruining Venezuela and a coup to take him out was attempted, but failed, as the citizens of that nation did not want to go back to the dismal state they had prior to Chavez. So the only thing left for the U.S. bullies was to place sanctions on the nation which would stifle profits from their resources, thus hindering the nation's progress. In Venezuela's attempt to fight back he began withdrawing ties to the United States as they paid off their account with IMF and World Bank, they further discarded the Petrodollar in dealing with their oil sales which have a devastating effect on the U.S. economy if more nations decided to do the same, thus Maduro is a dictator/villain and needs to be eliminated. More sanctions (in reality have the same effect as bombs as over 40,000 Venezuelans have died since 2017 as a result of insufficient medical supplies resulting from these sanctions has been documented) have been imposed on the country.

Now Canada is joining the bullying frenzy as they are interested in Venezuela's gold mines and other natural resources.

At what point does a civilized arise and understand that what natural resources within the boundaries of sovereign nations actually belongs to that nation and to attempt to take it is nothing more than a crime? That point will not be reached until such crimes are dealt with in the manner of crimes of murder, robbery, etc. committed by individuals.

Unfortunately, that ultimate solution does not appear on the horizon as the PMP continues to spew its propaganda selling these crimes against humanity are actually needed as the leaders of these nations are actually mistreating their citizens and rather than committing war crimes we are actually helping those citizens by imposing more disaster on them.

If people stopped to what is really taking place they would scream to stop these crimes. The PMP tells us Maduro is treating his people badly, they are starving, they are dying, etc. so we actually help what the PMP is telling us about Maduro and increase sanctions that further devastate those people, which in reality puts us in Maduro's side doing what the PMP tells us he is doing.

In Syria we are told Assad is killing his own people, so we go in with our bombs and kill more of his people.

I agree with you and find that when I stumble into a conversation with strangers along these lines they might agree with you as well. There appears to be an awakening underway.

He has a big fat head and his eyes are too close together suggesting that he might be a mutant with criminal inclinations. One thing is for certain, he admits that he is a liar and a thief. Of course that was an oopsie daisy admission and with a head fake, he shut his fat face real quick along those lines, deliberately omitting the fact that he is a murderer.
