If you think that Nicolás Maduro has to be dethroned while at the same time remain silent about the diabolical connection between the United States and Saudi Arabia, then you are almost certainly a political ideologue, a Neocon puppet, or a useful idiot. It’s just that simple.
We keep hearing that Maduro has to go because he has literally stopped “democracy” and “freedom” in Venezuela, but the people who are perpetuating this stupid idea hasn’t said a damn thing about how the United States is continuing to sell military weapons to Saudi Arabia, a country which has literally slaughtered men, women and children in Yemen! As Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has recently put it, Saudi Arabia is the
“primary exporter of jihadist ideology, Wahhabi Salafist ideology that is the motivation and inspiration for terrorist groups like ISIS and al Qaeda – groups that the Saudis both directly and indirectly support. President Trump’s recent decision to allow U.S. companies to sell Saudi Arabia nuclear technology is both mind-blowing and inexplicable. How does it serve our interests to help Saudi Arabia develop nuclear weapons?”
Archival documents from the US State Department from 2009 show that “donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.”
Once again, the logic is pretty clear: if Maduro has to go, then the United States needs to start sending millions of troops to Saudi Arabia in order to fight the influx of terrorist cells in the Middle East. But the United States isn’t even remotely suggesting that there has to be a military conflict with the Saudis.
So the prevailing mantra that Maduro has to go is complete nonsense. It is once again a New World Order ideology which has nothing to do with spreading “democracy” and “freedom” and has everything to do with imperialist maneuvering. In short, whenever someone starts telling you that Maduro needs to go, just simply say, “What have you been smoking lately?”
