Venezuela's Maduro Inaugurated
by Stephen Lendman
Latin American and other heads of state attended Maduro's inaugural ceremony. Earlier he accused opposition forces of triggering post-election violence.
"We have stopped a coup in its first stage," he said. "They are beaten, but they are coming back with a new attack." On Thursday, he flew to Lima.
He attended an emergency UNASUR meeting with other Latin American leaders. He did so to discuss what's ongoing. It continues. Opposition leader Capriles publicly urged supporters to carry out desruptive actions.
Washington's long arm is involved. Maduro understands the threat. Hopefully he's up to the challenge.
"We have information that right-wing sectors are making groups of people red shirts to simulate attacks," he said. He's got just cause for concern. Dark forces never quit.
