    to overthrow Venezuelan dictator with 300 men

    The details are still coming to the forefront, but it seems that a former U.S. Green Beret was heavily involved in the secret military operation to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

    The Associated Press (AP) was first to break the story about a daring but overly ambitious plan to sneak 300 former soldiers from the regime into the northern tip of Venezuela. They would raid government armories along the way and create a popular uprising to overthrow Maduro’s regime.

    Maduro is believed to have rigged the last elections. Sixty countries, including the U.S., recognize the opposition candidate, Juan Guaidó as the rightful president. However, Maduro is firmly entrenched in power, with the military backing him, so this plan had little chance of being successful. Luckily, this entire operation fell apart before it was ever launched. Still, the political fallout of the American involvement will no doubt be played up in the media as another failed coup attempt similar to the Bay of Pigs failed invasion of Cuba.

    he was a member of a minor opposition party who became the “leader” of the opposition in a round-robin system. He has tried on several occasions to garner support in Venezuela for his “presidency”,  but he has not succeeded.

    The media never fails to catapult the propaganda whenever possible.

    No one is trying to send in troops to the US and force him out to put Hillary in his place.

    The current Venezuelan government was legally elected. Why the US has to waste our tax dollars on destroying a legal government when the Trump admin can’t even provide health care to the sick and dying during a pandemic, is beyond me.

    Bunch of little children acting like cowboys using Venezuela as their toy.

      <h1 class=”Component-h1-0-2-33″>Ex-Green Beret led failed attempt to oust Venezuela’s Maduro</h1>
      May 1, 2020

      MIAMI (AP) — The plan was simple, but perilous. Some 300 heavily armed volunteers would sneak into Venezuela from the northern tip of South America. Along the way, they would raid military bases in the socialist country and ignite a popular rebellion that would end in President Nicolás Maduro’s arrest.

      What could go wrong? As it turns out, pretty much everything.

      The ringleader of the plot is now jailed in the U.S. on narcotics charges. Authorities in the U.S. and Colombia are asking questions about the role of his muscular American adviser, a former Green Beret. And dozens of desperate combatants who flocked to secret training camps in Colombia said they have been left to fend for themselves amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    What “dictator” are they talking about?

    All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.
