Maduro Asks International Community to End US’s Threats of War

Venezuela will not allow foreign soldiers to invade, President Nicolas Maduro said calling for dialogue with opposition forces during a televised speech Monday.

“Che, Fidel, Chavez, they are our heritage, they give us strength,” the Bolivarian head of state said, reminding the crowd of supporters of the country’s past struggle for independence dating back to the colonial era to present day.

Since the attempted coup on Jan. 23 led by opposition lawmaker Juan Guaido, the United States has aligned its forces with the self-proclaimed “interim president,” declaring his unconstitutional claim legitimate, triggering similar calls from its allies around the world and in South America.

Maduro said,

“When our Comandante Chavez passed away, I became president, but my first act was to hold elections. I wasn’t going to govern without elections…why has Sanchez Castejon governed for so long in Spain without convening elections?

Threats of militarized intervention have resurfaced as well as new rounds of suffocating sanctions against Venezuela, targeting the country’s oil companies in the United States. Although both the Lima Group and the European Union have rejected militarized force, they have recognized the Guaido’s claim and are calling for Maduro to abdicate in favor of a new election.

“The attacks against us from the so-called ‘Lima Group’ are also an attack on the whole left, on all progressives who they persecute in their countries,” President Maduro said, describing the organization’s behavior as “disgusting and laughable.”

Regarding the repeated requests for intervention made by the Venezuelan opposition, the president said it was foolish for his homeland to encourage war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As of late last month, Russia has already sent 400 of their elite Special Forces, the Spetsnaz, now embedded with Venezuela's military elite.

IF the US government goes for a decap strike against Caracas, they will not be greeted "with roses at their feet." The Venezuelans are a very proud people, with an incredible sense of both their history and their heritage.

Any invasion of this country by outside entities, will most likely result in a massive guerilla war by the Venezuelans against those forces, and they will most likely win, through time, and attrition.

But the really frustrating part of this, which apparently our troops and civilian leadership never got, from VietNam forward, is that you need to be on the moral, right side of history to win; that has not been the case in US military misadventures in Iraq; Somalia; Yemen; Syria; or Afghanistan.

We will NOT be on the right and moral side of history if the US invades Venezuela.

(*The "hippies" were thinking of the moral , right side of history , and were acute on the concept of "War" = "Big Bucks" , and protested , not only the imperial practice of drafting civilians to fight , against their moral mind set , but also how much US Domestic Aid goes into the war/money machine .
Somewhere in the mid seventies , the hippies , very honed in on how The Eagle Flys , did a whiplash thought reversal , once they realized how an exclusive bunch in New York profited from the stock market by investing in military industrial companies , they decided to crash the party , and became the "yuppies" !
And there went their element of moral , right conscientiousness .
A lot of people think "The Boys of Summer" is a song about baseball players .
Today Trump , who for some , his words speak louder then his actions , said , just in time to generate a billion yule tide toasts around the table , that he wanted an immediate troop withdrawal from Syria , then demonstrated what he always says , on the other hand; "if I don't get my way , I leave and take the money ." , which showed up on Wall Street on Christmas Eve as one of the markets biggest drops in history .)
