After his latest coup attempt against the elected government of President Nicolás Maduro quickly fell flat, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó on Saturday said he has moved to open "direct communications" with Pentagon officials with the goal of establishing greater military "coordination" with the United States.
Whew, fortunately we have Schumer and Pelosi opposing Trump at every step to insure peace. Uh, maybe not as it seems they support all regime change and active military intervention world wide. So much for the honorable opposition or peace as there is nothing like wars to make corporate donors happy.
Can we stop calling this traitor an “opposition leader” please.
His entire political party, which is his only claim to legitimacy, is an American invention and Washington remains its biggest financier to this day.
Maduro, I humbly suggest that you place Mr. Guaidó in a cell with the equivalent of the Sword of Damocles over his head. If Uncle $am crosses your border, it should be rigged to automatically fall.
Now, America can watch how our murderous military react to being manipulated by a frightened animal and the rest of the pack that supports him.
Fairly certain they are banking on his arrest and/or execution to justify their intended invasion now that this amateurish coup has so obviously failed.
You may be right, he does seem to be getting set up as a patsy. Betcha at some level he deserves it, but the sovereign nation of Venezuela sure does not.
“Traitor” is good. “Puppet,” “clown,” a couple of others.
How about "Stooge?"
Juan Guaido is a laughably pathetic hack politician, and he expects the US to rescue him?
Very strange scenario.
Thankfully the “Resistance” is out making sure that there is no Coup, and now we have Democrat (Biden) leading the race who has come out against it. sarcasm
Still wondering how this unknown became the leader of the Venezuelan Assembly in the first place. The whole thing has been orchetrated by the US.
What a fraud, The Great Pretender, Juan Guaido.
“…and he expects the US to rescue him?”
Why not? He’s a CIA invention.
The nation can have a military draft which will put end to endless wars, or it can have a draft when the volunteer army is inadequate, as in an invasion of Venezuela, which could lead to an endless Vietnam like disaster, per Colonel Wilkerson:
General Smedley Butler warned us all about US military intervention a very long time ago. The US military and the alphabet soup of enforcer agencies, have been overthrowing nations worldwide in the name of capitalism/empire for hundreds of years. As Smedley said, he was a gangster for capitalism. Is it finally time now for USA citizens to rise up and put an end to this horror? Is it time to bring our entire military foreign forces home? Is it time yet for our “government” to finally start focusing on the needs of the people at home over the demands of corporate/finance gangsters?
If not now, then when?
An inspector general should be assigned to see if CIA money is being spent on overthrow tactics or actions. Congress can cut funds here as well as for walls and other foolishness. Be a shame if Guaid’o hung HIMSELF while in the lockup.
Why give this asshole airtime and push him into the public discourse when he a fascist puppet?
It would be easier to take out the Koch Bro’s. and take out the refinery in Corpus Christi.
Yeah, we need to make it true by calling Juan Guaido’ THE FAKE OPPOSITION LEADER!
