Senators [Robert] Menendez [a warmongering Wall Street Democrat, accused of corruption] and [Republican Marco] Rubio introduced a bipartisan bill to the Senate to intensify US and international pressure on the government of Venezuela. Mark Weisbrot says this is largely possible because members of Congress are unaware of the suffering the sanctions are causing in Venezuela.

    • Maduro was elected democratically. While Donald Trump’s puppet Guaido appointed himself as ‘president’. Imagine in the Netherlands Marianne Thieme of the Party of the Animals proclaiming herself to be the ‘real’ prime minister; and calling on a Russian and/or Chinese military invasion to enforce that. Then, corporate media all over the world would howl of indignation 24 hours a day.

      If the Trump war on Venezuela would succeed, then Venezuela would become a bloody far-right dictatorship like in Chile under Pinochet, or in Brazil during the 1960s-70s military dictatorship; or like Bolsonaro is making in Brazil right now.
