[ Editor’s Note: They call it overkill, where you start out claiming the high ground but your subsequent actions fail to support your case of interfering with a foreign nation’s internal politics for altruistic reasons, but quite the opposite.
I would bet my life that a poll taken in Syria on the question of the US’s proxy terror war being done to serve the best interests of the Syrian people would be overwhelmingly defeated. When I was an election monitor in 2015, with the opposition having own monitors in all 5000 polling stations with eyes on the ballot boxes 24/7, Assad still won with 90% of the vote.
There were clues this was happening, with Guaido’s alleged popularity turning out to be a media/Intel psyop construction. There was no big photo coverage of his alleged crowd support and no trusted investigative journalists on the ground reporting such with the video and interview proof.
What we got instead was tightly controlled statements from the White House, from resident Darth Vader himself, John Bolton, that the Maduro evil empire would fall and the Venezuelan people would be free.
But VT is good at counting. The descendants of the native American Indians outnumber the descendants of the Spanish Conquistadors. There is no crossover voting and no real independent third party block.
And last, when the White House huffed and puffed over the Russian invasion of Venezuela with a hundred technical support troops and equipment, it showed it was scraping the bottom of the barrel to find a fig leaf of cover at the obvious attempt to get control of Venezuela’s oil.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Co-director Of Popular resistance activist group Kevin Zeese, who visited Venezuela earlier in the month with an American delegation, told Sputnik that one of the delegates who remains in the Latin American country, was unable to find any reported protests called by US-backed self-styled president, Juan Guaido.
“One of our delegates is in Venezuela and she was trying to go to these protests, and couldn’t find them. They seem like no one is showing up for these protests. So, Guaido is loosing power as he embraces the United States, as he calls for US troops, as he is tied to this terrorism and the electrical grid attack, he is loosing power. And on the other side, [Venezuelan incumbent President Nicolas] Maduro is gaining power,” Zeese said.
Guaido, the Venezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president of Venezuela, reportedly organized “thousands” of protesters at some 100 rally points across the nation, Efecto Cocuyo website reported Saturday.
He called for mass protests on March 30 earlier this week in order to prepare for the April 6 active phase of what he dubbed “tactical actions” of his Operation Freedom, aimed at ousting Maduro.
Guaido said opposition had formed aid and freedom committees that would take part in the action but gave away no details of what was planned.
Earlier in March, Zeese, along with a 13-member delegation from the US Peace Council organization, visited Venezuela to get a first-hand look of the situation in the country. The delegation met with Maduro, country’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza other government officials, as well as with the leaders of the Human Rights Council.
In January, Guaido declared himself interim president of Venezuela after disputing Maduro’s reelection victory in May of 2018.The United States and 54 countries recognized Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president and called on Maduro to step down.
Maduro, on his part, has called Guaido a US puppet and accused the United States of trying to orchestrate a coup to topple Venezuela’s legitimate government as well as claim the country’s resources.
Russia, China, Turkey, Cuba, Bolivia and a number of other countries have said they recognize Maduro as the only legitimate president of Venezuela.
