Donald Trump’s military invasion of Venezuela?


This parody music video from Britain is called Earth, Wind, Fire & Fury – “Nukee Pyongyang“.

It says about itself:

9 August 2017

Donald Trump sends an apocalyptic disco message to North Korea via his Earth, Wind & Fire tribute band.

LYRICS:

Bang! Nukee Pyongyang
Bang! Nukee Pyongyang

Sanctions land so quickly onto North Korea when they make stupid threats
Supercalifragilistic missiles got the Donald in a sweat
I’ll stare Kim Jong-un in the face and say, “Go ahead, make my day, punk”
I’ll flick the switch and blow that bitch
Into kingdom come

Bang! Nukee Pyongyang
Bang! Nukee Pyongyang

Apart from threatening nuclear war against North Korea, a grave threat against the people of United States colony Guam, Donald Trump threatens war a bit closer to the USA as well.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Trump does not exclude military intervention in Venezuela

Today, 7:00 PM

US President Trump has said that he does not exclude military intervention in Venezuela. At his golf club in New Jersey, he said that the United States of America has many options for Venezuela, and that a military operation is definitely something he could choose.

Later, the White House announced that a request from Venezuelan President Maduro to talk with Trump was rejected. …

The Venezuelan Minister of Defense calls Trumps remark an act of madness and far-reaching extremism. The minister of communication speaks of the biggest threat ever expressed against the country. …

Venezuela will certainly be dealt with next week during a six-day visit by Vice President Pence to several Latin American countries. It is generally assumed that Pence will call on the Latin American countries to put Venezuela under pressure together. …

In the past, the US has taken military action in Latin America a number of times. This happened, for example, in 1989 when US troops put an end to the military dictatorship of General Noriega in Panama.

This last sentence by NOS TV is extremely selective and misleading. The Pentagon and the CIA did not mind at all that Noriega was a dictator, as long as he was their ally in the war against the elected leftist government of Nicaragua. The Pentagon and the CIA usually do not mind dictators in Latin America, like Pinochet in Chile, and the military juntas in Brazil and Argentina which they all helped in their coups. United States military invasions and covert CIA interventions, like in Venezuela in 2002, are usually anti-democracy and pro-dictatorship.

President Donald Trump’s bellicose threat Friday that Washington could resort to a “military option” against Venezuela has triggered a wave of statements of formal opposition from governments throughout Latin America, including right-wing regimes like those in Argentina, Peru and Colombia, which have called for the ouster of President Nicolas Maduro and collaborated closely with Washington: here.

    US VICE-PRESIDENT Mike Pence faced both ways on his visit to Colombia at the weekend over Donald Trump’s war threat to Venezuela, but host Juan Manuel Santos rejected the military option outright.

    Mr Pence noted President Trump’s reference to having “many options for Venezuela” while stressing that the US president “also remains confident that working with all of our allies across Latin America we can achieve a peaceable solution to the crisis facing the Venezuelan people.”

    However, Mr Santos did not mince his words, announcing after their bilateral talks: “As friends you have to tell each other the truth.

    “I told Vice-President Pence that the possibility of a military intervention may not be considered.

    “Neither Colombia nor Latin America from the Rio Sur to Patagonia could agree. The Americas is a continent of peace. Let’s leave it that way.”

    Mr Santos and other US allies believe military intervention would destabilise the region.

  3. LATIN AMERICAN leaders have roundly condemned US President Donald Trump’s threat of a “military option” against Venezuela.

    At a press conference on Friday Mr Trump labelled his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro a “dictator.”

    He said: “The people are suffering and they are dying.

    “We have many options for Venezuela including a possible military option if necessary.”

    At least 124 people have died in four months of opposition regime-change riots since the start of April, fuelled by chronic shortages of food, medicine and other goods the government blames on a US-directed economic war.

    Six died on July 30 during elections to the new assembly to amend the constitution — over which Washington threatened Caracas with sanctions. One death has been reported since then.

    The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry said Mr Trump’s “warmongering declarations” were part of the “systematic US aggressions against Venezuela.”

    Venezuela’s allies, including Bolivia and Ecuador, issued solidarity messages.

    Bolivian President Evo Morales slammed the “deafening silence” from Venezuela’s Democratic Unity Roundtable (Mud) opposition, while Ecuador reminded the world that Latin America and the Caribbean nations had declared the region a “zone of peace.”

    Mr Trump’s comments were the first explicit threat of military action against Venezuela by a US president since Mr Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chavez was elected in 1998. But former president George W Bush supported opposition parties behind the failed 2002 coup against Mr Chavez, while his successor Barack Obama decreed Venezuela an “unusual and extraordinary threat” to US national security and foreign policy in 2015.

    Mr Obama’s former national security adviser on Latin America Mark Feierstein accused Mr Trump of playing into Mr Maduro’s hands.

    “For years he’s been saying that the US is preparing an invasion, and everyone laughed. But now the claim has been validated. It’s hard to imagine a more damaging thing for Trump to say.”

    On Friday Miami-based ex-army captain Juan Caguaripano, who led a 20-man raid on an army base in Carabobo state last weekend, was arrested in the capital Caracas with one co-conspirator. Eight more remain at large.

    Mr Pence flew to Colombia yesterday for talks with President Juan Manuel Santos, expected to focus on Venezuela.

    But the Colombian Foreign Ministry condemned any “military measures and the use of force,” urging respect for the UN Charter and Venezuelan sovereignty.

    Even Peru, which expelled Venezuelan ambassador Diego Molero on Friday to increase the pressure on pressure Mr Maduro to quit, balked at the threat of military intervention

    A Foreign Ministry statement rejected “any threat or use of force not authorised by the United Nations security council.”

    Maduro tells thronged masses to prepare for the threat of a Trump invasion

    VENEZUELANS packed the streets of Caracas on Monday to oppose US President Donald Trump’s threat of military intervention in the country.

    The Anti-Imperialist March, which stretched over a mile through the capital, denounced the US leader’s threat on Friday of a “military option.”

    Supporters were joined by a large contingent of the Bolivarian National Guard.

    National Guard officer Nelson Rafael Pineda said: “We will defend our country if at any moment the American empire wants to tread on the sacred soil of Bolivar and Chavez” — referring to Venezuela’s 18th-century national liberation hero and current Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s late predecessor.

    The march ended in a rally at the Miraflores presidential palace, where Mr Maduro told supporters to prepare for an “imperialist invasion.”

    “I have given the order to the armed forces’ joint chiefs of staff to start preparations for a national civil-military exercise for the integrated armed defense of the Venezuelan nation,” he said.

    Mr Maduro also called the opposition Democratic Unity Roundtable (Mud) coalition “traitors” for their failure to fully condemn Mr Trump’s comments — as even hostile regional governments and blocs have done.

    In its belated statement on Sunday, the Mud said it “holds the Maduro dictatorship responsible for turning the country into a regional threat.”

    While rejecting military threats “from whatever foreign power,” it accused Cuba of intervention in Venezuela.

    The opposition coalition has urged Venezuelan’s to take part in regime-change protests across the country for the past four months.

    Many of the protests have turned violent, with casualties on both sides.

    On Monday US Vice-President Mike Pence delivered a less aggressive message than his boss promising a peaceful resolution to Venezuela’s “collapse into dictatorship.”

    “A failed state in Venezuela threatens the security and prosperity of our entire hemisphere and the people of the United States of America,” he told reporters in Cartagena, Colombia.

    Venezuelan Vice-President Tarek el-Aissami condemned Mr Pence’s visit to neighbouring Colombia.

    “We are deeply saddened that that nation, a sibling country that is Colombia, founded under the same sword that founded this homeland, would lend itself to that menace, would lend itself to the aggression against our people,” he said.
