The US Elite Has Determined Again
is making an attempt to put its will on the individuals of another individuals, in this case, and
not for the first time, your nation in Venezuela.

23. January 2019 after careful secret planning
within the previous weeks and late night time name from the US yesterday
Vice President Mike Pence – see ”Pence Pledged US Backing
Before the Venezuelan opposition leader's motion and Venezuelan – Trump's copper
Plan is an enormous mistake ”- United States
commenced a coup by President Nicolás Maduro and his authorities
You’ve got democratically chosen to characterize you on 20 Might 2018. See “The Case of Legitimacy
Maduron one other time period.

Organizing, Recognizing and Supporting "Temporary"
President "The US Doll that has been trained for this purpose in the last decade – see" Making Juan Guaido:
How america Regime Change Laboratory established the Venezuelan Coup Chief – The US government has merely brought it
a clearer focus, and now it has lengthy been making an attempt to grab control
Venezuelan large oil, fuel, gold, water and different natural assets
oil and fuel conveniently situated near the Texan refineries. For gold
See, for example, “The Bank of England refused
returns $ 1.2 billion gold to Venezuela – reviews and then “Bank Of England Urged To
Move Venezuela's gold to Guaido.

This coup is, in fact, solely in keeping with america
overseas policy during the last two centuries, with a central focus
has been to safe the world's most essential geostrategic areas and steal
assets of overseas peoples. Listing only 'probably the most vital in america

governments: overhead.

It goes with out saying that this newest firm is within the management
change ”clearly violates international regulation with so many elements
it is troublesome to briefly document them. First, the continued US intervention
There has all the time been a violation of worldwide regulation in the course of the prolonged interval, together with Article 19 of Chapter IV. ,
United States Organization Charter. Secondly, the sanctions are unlawful beneath so many agreements
it is lousy. See rules for the rule
103. Collective punishments.
Thirdly, the coup is opposite to Venezuelan constitution. See “Guaido's fault
Constitutional claim to the Venezuelan Presidency. ”

Sadly, international regulation (like nationwide regulation)
is just used as a second option to deliver violence outdoors the elite
a circle and, as the disc's random remark exhibits, is routine
The elites ignore the USA and elsewhere when their geopolitical, economic
and / or Other Benefits “Require”

As normal,
This coup, even the US sycophantic allies, like
Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Israel…. – see, for example, “Australia recognizes Juan
Guaidó as President of Venezuela ”
and ”Emmanuel Macron, Pedro
Sanchez, Angela Merkel and Theresa can’t have the best to offer Ultimatum
Venezuela ”- as nicely
an elite-dominated company media that is such an excuse. Keep in mind,
provided that many of these political leaders have been awarded
their apparent incompetence in coping with crucial import issues
in their constituencies – are these phrases talked about as Brexit and
For example, "Yellow Vests"? – It’s no marvel that disturbing supply
Different occasions additionally use some aid from glare

In fact the American American organization
(OAS) – Recognizing Guaidó's violation of his own Constitution – and
just European Union (EU), also kneeling before US strain
ignore international regulation, simply add a missing international system image
an ethical compass and a rule of regulation, to not mention braveness.

It's true, as most of you nicely know, that

geopolitical control can also be very important. As Garikai Chengu stated:
“America is making an attempt to regulate Venezuela as a result of it sits above the strategic degree
At the intersection of the Caribbean, South and Central American worlds. Control
The nation has all the time been a very efficient strategy to achieve energy
these three areas and past. "See,

Venezuela is especially brought on by the continued illegality of the USA
our nation's absolutely affordable authorities is able to participate
