Replicating Regime Change Playbook, Pompeo Says US Obligated to 'Take Down' Hezbollah in Venezuela

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

As a U.S.-backed effort to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro continues, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said late Wednesday that Hezbollah "has active cells" in Venezuela—a claim that was immediately scrutinized and compared with the second Bush administration's lies to justify the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

There is profound linguistic truth in observing the statements of a powerful entity dependent on obscuring the truth as a premise for it’s “economy”, asserting definitions of intents and actions of another. It can only speak out of its own experience and premises.

Secretary of the sinking ship of state overboarding as a delusional version of a junkyard dog. I pray for a mildly but permanently disabling condition forcing him home to his own backyard to pull weeds as therapy.

Trump was put into the White House to finish the capture of Iran oil that Bush/Cheney thought they could grab after they blew through Iraq taking the oil fields for the West and personal profit. Now Iran and Venezuela are the goals for more oil. Problem is the Middle East was destroyed and sent into cruel Dictatorship like the Saudi are showing with bad climate change and massive numbers trying to get into Europe. Venezuela not only with low oil prices and US sanctions but starving people under massive corruption. Of course the predators say strike now. At same time people are fleeing the crimes of the US and friends in Central American which is why Trump chants “wall” meaning white supremacy and ignore the carnage of the US dark side with the same Bush people in action again. The sheeple buy the propaganda. The US democracy in danger.

The wars are american citizen’s wars. Obama was every bit as war hungry as trump and Hillary might have been worse than both put together. American citizens vote for these warmongers.

Hezbollah in Venezuela? What a fabricated load/pile of stinking propaganda from this trump POS! Yeah, “active cells” in Venezuela proclaimed as truth from the most untruthful regime in history…every player a pathological liar and provocateur to enable the domination of other nations by military or economic force…they want to take and give Venezuela’s oil and other resources via a lackey government to US dominated corporate thieves/pirates…they don’t give a shit about the millions of people their intentional policies have brought to the brink…either in Venezuela or America! Pigs at the trough!

Speaking to Venezuela and their economic woes and linking it to why WIKILeaks is seen as so dangerous to the United States of America.

These leaked documents reveal how entities like the World Bank are used by the USA to wage unconventional warfare.

Again I say that the only way Maduro survives a U. S.-backed coup attempt is to put it down with military force, arrest and execute ALL of the traitors, starting with Guaido and every one of his followers up on stage with him, any military defectors, the corporate oligarchs who created the artificial shortages that have hurt people, the opposition media who have been calling for this treasonous coup, and the next people who pick up rocks to continue the violence. There is no peaceful solution to this that allows the Chavista government to survive. The entire point of this coup is to remove them from power and put in a fascist, libertarian government that will sell off all government assets and privatize everything (starting with the oil) for the benefit of the haves and make life much worse for the poor who have backed the Bolivarian Revolution for the past 20 years and will be much worse off for at least a generation if this outrage succeeds.

If Pompeo is so afraid of Hezbollah, why did his American military fight alongside Hezbollah against ISIS?

True, but what other choices do they have? Because unless you are a warmonger you are not allowed in the Republican or Democratic clubs.

“People don’t recognize that Hezbollah has active cells—the Iranians are impacting the people of Venezuela and throughout South America. We have an obligation to take down that risk for America.”

How is that a risk for America? It’s pure fraud for this Israeli stooge to suggest that it is.

While I can see your point I personally disagree considering that we live in an oligarchy.While I do agree citizens do have a personal responsibility to stand up against the duopoly as a whole, I can’t fault them for feeling powerless in an oligarchy where genuine anti-war voices are not even allowed in the debates and those who do spout anti-war when they make it through the primaries end up being liars.

And of course the American people are always told the truth by their government. More humor.
