Despite International Law Which Would Make It Illegal, Pompeo Claims US Attack on Venezuela "Would Be Lawful"

Kill the CIA? Then who will we depend on for drug running, gun running, coup after coup, supporting and orchestrating murder and assassinations, and then the retired being used by a crooked president like Nixon?
More guillotines please.

Really, I’d watch it again.

JFK tried to do that in 1963 when he vowed to fire Dulles and " break the CIA into a thousand pieces" before he was assassinated in Dallas and that was probably the last chance to abolish the CIA. That assassination sent a loud and clear message to the Church Committee and all future Presidents.

I don’t know what I’m supposed to see differently. Maddow was teasing out the messaging disagreements between Trump and his warmonger appointees. She didn’t promote one loyalty or another. This was a cute comparison, nothing more.

If I missed something please clue me in. I’m more than curious now.

If that is what you got from this, we will never see eye to eye, she was continuing to support the Russiagate fraud and taunting two nutcases, “guys” as she called them, for not getting on with their Venezuelan project because Trump is taking orders from Putin. I’ll leave it to the judgment of others to interpret as they so wish.

Actually, the big gains for China are to be made by letting John Bolton get his way.

And, once the Venezuela oil supply has been destroyed by the Venezuela military, Russia and Iran will make money and the US economy will be hurt by higher energy prices.

Dear Mr Pompeo: If you take the L away from Lawful------all you are left with is AWFUL, and I am sorry to say that that lack of an L is truly your value to America and the world.

According to this article the USA was conned by Venezuelan Military Intelligence in a counter-terrorism operation.

The biggest problem with Maduro, as it was with Mossadegh, Castro, Arbenz, Allende, Ortega, Saddam, Iran, etc., is that they won’t go along with the imperial program. They’d rather keep their own resources and not let global corporatists exploit their labor. Every single time one of these countries - mostly socialist democracies - is overthrown, we replace them with a dictator. Think about that. We’d rather have a goon in our pocket than let the people of a sovereign nation control their own destiny.

As others have mentioned, it’s shocking that normally lucid people are in favor of this imminent coup. They don’t realize how long we’ve been chipping away at Venezuela’s stability through NED funding and the Fort Benning WHINSEC crew. And the sanctions have been devastating, especially since oil prices have dipped.

This is basically a coup by the wealthy of Venezuela. They control most of the media and are able to shape the narrative to their advantage. With help from our own MSM, it’s no wonder the average person is so misinformed. Imagine that this PR blitz has been able to paint Maduro, legitimately elected, as a dictator! Bolton & Pompeo would be nutting their pants if only it was true.

The Trump war cabinet agrees that rape is OK if it’s war, told the International Criminal Court to hold our frightening number of war criminals above international law and has broken every single international agreement on arms control. If these USAssholes invade any country, I hope they kick our ass, fill the VA with brain dead and deformed volunteers, rape our troops and hang invading POW.

I truly wish Pompeo was wrong, but the congress has so give up the wars powers act since Vietnam that it is basically meaningless. If any one thinks old turtle face would go against Trump while his wife is part of the Trump stable, I have a giant brass statue for sale in Mew York harbor. Needs to be moved.

Sounds a lot like the Bay of Pigs fiasco. The problem in this Venezuela fiasco seems to be that the Orange One believes all of his stupid “advisors”.

The surest way to unite both sides in Venezuela, is to attack them. They may hate each other now, but they hate the Yanqui even more.

Talk about silver spoons. Trumpenstein inherited a growing, some would say booming, economy. A strong business environment, a still struggling but growing housing market, a strong and growing stock market, and yet he unselfishly gives all the credit to Obama. NOT
Obama’s capitol building had scaffolding during much of his tenure, Trump gets a finished product along with a refurbished Statue of Liberty.
The Trump legacy will be that he tore down most good things, and promoted mostly bad things.
And let’s admit that G.W. Bush was near impossible to be worse than.
An apparent attempt by both at securing the title of “Worst president in History.”

That would be OK for a movie script but in fact WAR KILLS INNOCENT PEOPLE and pollutes the earth with toxic chemical, destroys people and their homes.

This is the type of behavior and attitude toward the international community that is indicative of a pariah nation with no respect for the rule of international law. The American people just as the German people of 1936 have to shoulder the blame for not holding those in power accountable. When a nation develops the attitude that they are morally, culturally, socially, and militarily superior, the decline has already begun.

They aren’t so much as advisers, as they are brokers.
