[ Ed. note – One of the most memorable speeches ever delivered at the UN by any head of state was that given in 2006 by Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. The speech was given before the General Assembly on September 20–just one day after George W. Bush had spoken in the same chamber before the same body.
With Trump’s recent hint at possible military action against Venezuela, media attacks against the South American country and its Bolivarian government have ramped up exponentially over the past few days.
The above video report was posted by RT on Friday in response to the new sanctions announced on Venezuela. But what I find most fascinating about it is that it offers us a very graphic “before” and “after” view of Donald Trump.
[ Ed. note – According to CIA Director Mike Pompeo, America must be vigilant; Iran, Hezbollah, and the Russians are all up to nefarious doings in Venezuela. As I reported a couple of days ago, Trump said he would not rule out a “military option” for Venezuela, and now it sounds like Pompeo may be trying to build justification for a US intervention.
Trump took time off from threatening North Korea today in order to fire off a few threats at Venezuela. If the president decides he wants to send US troops into Venezuela, he probably now has the justification he needs, courtesy of the UN Humans Rights Commission. The Office of the High Commissioner has released a report accusing the government of “patterns” of human rights violations.
[ Ed. note – Top ranking officials of the US, a country run by a dictatorial deep state and that is rapidly losing even the outward trappings of democracy, are now calling Nicholas Maduro, the president of Venezuela, a “dictator.” This means Venezuela can prepare for more violence, more terrorist attacks, more murders and assassinations of government supporters, and possibly, should all of that fail, maybe even US air attacks or an invasion.
This post is intended as a companion piece to my article, Destabilizing Venezuela: Exploring the Zionist Connection. In that article I offered the following observation regarding former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez:
There are some admirable leaders on the world stage today. By and large they are the same ones most heavily demonized by the mainstream media. But for standing up and speaking truth to power, Chavez was in a class by himself.
