Is there any information that Maduro abused terror / repression against
the regular people or his political opponents? Venezuela looks somewhat
more democratic and liberal than the Saudi Arabia, for example. Also, it
doesn't seem that the VE governance is being driven by Maduro's personal
autocratic will. He represents a political party, and the party members
seem to sincerely support the government policies. So, even if there was
a reason to talk about a someone's usurpation of power, it's not about a
single person. Meanwhile, the Atlanticist propaganda once again abuses
"dictator" image in order to primitivize the picture.
If Maduro was a dictator, then how it might happen that the right-wing
opposition constitutes the majority in their parliament? Maduro and his
party respected the result of the parliamentary election, they did not
question it. But the opposition majority in the parliament still doesn't
change the fact that Maduro won the presidential election. The opposition
willingly decided to boycot the election, and now they say the election
was not for real (just because they decided to boycot it) and are trying
to usurp the power in a non-democratic way. And the US and the American
lackeys in the world, are trying to help these non-democratic folks.
It's not good, not nice.
What's happened in Venezuela is a not so uncommon situation when diffent
branches of government are suddenly under control of different, toughly
competing parties, each of which is legitimate and has certain support
among the people. It can cause a political deadlock, if the actors are
uncompromising and / or mutually arrogant. The best [outside] advice to
all the VE parties is to stop trying to undermine each other and start
searching for a common ground. In turn, the American government's call
"to pick a side" is absolutely destructive, irresponsible, and it stands
contrary to the basics of democracy. So it shall be rejected.
The ugly American swine pursues its own partisan preferencies in the VE
case. Fuck this swine, it has no right to decide what is legitimate and
what is not for Venezuela. I am myself not a fan of the radical leftist
policies, however, I think that every nation is in uniqie conditions,
depending on which the popular majority might prefer this or that. Those
who wish the Venezuelans well, should encourage intra-national dialogue
within Venezuela rather than "picking a side". Some responsible outside
powers try to soften the Venezuela situation from such a position, while
the blunt American 'triumphalist' stance has a destructive effect.
There is no doubt that Venezuela is having a hard time. There were maybe
some mistakes in the past and some policies maybe need to be changed in
order to be less idealistic and more realistic. It should not be done by
the anti-constitutional unlawful means, - and, moreover, it shouldn't be
done in favor of the American imperialism.
It looks like the Trump's claim that the US no longer recognizes Maduro
as the Venezuela president was a kind of premature ejaculation. So far,
only one of the prominent VE officials switched sides, and the military
expressed their support to the legitimate president. It's certainly not
what the conspirators expected while planning the coup. It doesn't look
like Venezuela's going to obey the Atlanticist dictates. In turn, the
Guaido's obvious collusion with U.S. government undermines the national
sovereignty of Venezuela. He simply has revealed himself as an American
My personal humble advice to the VE parties is: do not rely on external
patrons, try to find a compromise solution among yourselves, - otherwise,
the Atlanticist empire finds a 'solution' for you in its own favor.
American meddling, especially in the recent decades, in someone else's
affairs repeatedly tended to make bad things worse as one can easily see
with regard to many nations where the US had meddled.
If the US policymakers are persistent in their 'regime change' lust then
the next American step may be to organize weaponized groups and encorage
a militant violence, in order to create a pretext for military invasion.
Those anti-Maduro local folks that may be 'seduced' by such a scenario,
should realize that any development in this way will likely make the VE
things even more problematic than they are today.
