I would love to know the opinion ( or even better, the explanation ) of anrec80, who claims that the Venezuelans and only the Venezuelans should solve their problems, with no intervention of any foreign power, about two specific FACTS that shows the obvious and gross intervention of Mr. Putin and friends in Venezuela :
1. The brave Maduro has replaced his personal security with a staff of dozens of russian bodyguards sent by his friend Putin, because he knows that even in the venezuelan army there are already people who is not happy with him and could kick him off from the government very soon. How do you call that anrec80? Just a good man worried about the health of his friend? Or just plain interventionism in the fate of a foreign country?
2. An unusual visitor, to say it politely, landed in Caracas a couple of days ago, a Nordwind Boeing 777, with only 2 crew members, and remained parked until now, without any explanation of the mission of this aircraft, although it is clear that not a single tourist arrived on it and this plane is there to take something or someone back to Russia, or another communist country, since I doubt Nordwind will pay this trip just to test the capability of the crew to land a 777 in Caracas. Any explanation about it? Because I have no doubt you will be screaming about interventionism if a US registered aircraft with no pax make such a suspicious visit with no reason to Venezuela.
I'm sure your explanation will be very funny to read, if you have the nerve to give one.
Couldn´t have said it better myself, I was about to post something along the same lines, but I am getting tired of dealing with communist loving dimwits who live in a democracy, and as Venezuelan myself I am pretty much full on following the happennings right now, so I am quite mentally tired with all the information (and misinformation) coming out.
I am hopeful that the situation will be over soon, but then again we are dealing with a criminal tyrant here, and you can´t just come up and say ¨Hey, the people have spoken, and they want you out, so... bye bye.¨ cause that ain´t gonna happen.
A bloodbath is sadly expected, but remain hopeful that it won´t get to that point.
Sadly I have the same expectations about how this regime will end, and while I try to imagine possible scenarios with the Maduro Gang just fleeing to a resort in Cuba with no casualties for the common people, we all know that the biggest chances are on the side of demonstrators against the regime being massacred, detained and/or tortured (again ) in the next weeks. The European countries and European Parliament recognizing the legitimacy of Guaido and the seizure of Citgo in USA are good news, but not enough to see the criminals going out of Miraflores.
In any case, you can be sure that all venezuelans who want democracy and freedom have full support and solidarity all across the world, and that people who still support Maduro are an irrelevant minority ( disgracefully the brain washing still works in some places ), or have political agendas trying to give strength to the communist regimes in their own countries, but they will not succeed, you can be sure.
Here in Latin America we all learned the lessons about what communism means, and while we all know democracy and capitalism have a lot of problems and things to improve, there is no comparison between the two.
As an example, yesterday, at midday, across 30 different cities in Chile, 30 bands performed recitals called concert in the roof, remembering the 50 years of the last concert of The Beatles. They sang the same songs of that day 50 years ago, for free, on the roofs of municipal theaters or similar public buildings across all our country. People on the streets was amazed, happy, singing in chorus with the bands, laughing and celebrating. At the same time, in Venezuelans streets, people was doing demonstrations against a dictatorship, with empty stomachs but the clear vision of who is responsible fot their suffering.
That is the difference between freedom and communism, between democracy and a mafia ruling the country. This is just a matter of time.
