AT LAST: PROPER SOCIALISM IN VENEZUELA

By Pete Moore On April 30th, 2019

Crackers in Caracas

Juan Guaidó has put out a bizarre video, claiming that he’s in the final stage of overthrowing Comrade Maduro. Out come Guaidó’s supporters, and out comes the military to mow them down. Thus socialism comes to its natural point yet again.

  1. not good. Especially since it is our sphere and this President is very liable to act.

    Hope not.

  2. So to be clear Patrick, you are against a US invasion of Venezuela but support a US invasion of Iran?

  3. Venezuela has ordered CNN off the local cable systems after the channel showed images of a government truck hitting protesters.

    That’s two dictators who don’t like them now.

    Your sphere? Does Russia have a sphere? How about China or even Iran – do they have ‘spheres’?

    Anyway, a comment at the most accurate site on t’internet is……

    la Operación Libertad

    Totally doesn’t sound like a CIA spook came up with that name.

    Soon there shall be thousands of breeding-age Nigerians and Afghans fleeing the Venezualan civil war in boats across the Gulf of Mexico with Soros-funded NGOs plucking them to safety from beaches in Cuba

  5. Let us contrast ‘democracy’ in France with ‘dictatorship’ in Venezuela…….

  6. China does have a sphere, but Japan and Vietnam didn’t sign up for that.

    Iran does have a sphere, but the Sunni Arabs hate them, and didn’t sign up either. The Arab world Shias, thanks to GWB, are free to engage in a friendly way with Iran now

  7. I think I’d prefer to live in Paris than in Caracas, Allan.

  8. You mean that you would prefer to have your bubble in Paris than Caracas. Then again, you are very unlikely to question the way of things in France, or anywhere that you place your bubble.

  9. Please at least come up with your own tired cliches.

    You think that the average person in Paris is hungry the way the Venezuelans are hungry?

  10. No bubble in middle class, oil rich Aberdeen. No sireeee, that’s really living on the edge.

    Years ago, you claimed to be working on an invention that was going to astonish the universe.

    Can you give us an update as to the status of this project.

  12. Phantom – I’m still waiting on the Chinese actually going ahead. Unfortunately, relations with the other side (Taiwan) have deteriorated, so I may be waiting some time

  13. Such a terrible thing for the people of Venezuela. If our media had an ounce of decency they’d be proclaiming their plight from the rooftops, warning everyone never, ever to vote for the maggot-shit of socialism which always and in every single country it’s ever been tried in, has led to utter poverty and ruin for the populace.
    But don’t expect to hear such themes from the likes of the New York Times, in which Pres Trump is portrayed simultaneously as (a) a Nazi and (b) a slave to Israel. Who knew you could be both at once?

  14. In general terms, what type of project are we talking about

  15. Phantom – tell you what. I consider DV to be trustworthy, and so do you. You are enmeshed in ATW so you can arrange for DV to contact me – he has my details – and I’ll show him the stuff. He’ll confirm the fact of it, the scale of it and the brilliance of it without revealing the content because, after all, it is confidential. And then we’ll just wait……. How about that?

  16. Allan invented an imaginary friend.

  17. lol

  18. The only thing Allan has invented is himself !

  19. Whether the US (and the EU) support Guaido, or even whether the CIA is behind this revolt, is really irrelevant. Even the most generous observer will admit that the Chavez experiment has been a complete failure and that the Venezuelan people now deserve a government at least more responsible than the current one.

    Interesting that China also backs Maduro; it seems Peking foreign policy is still to back any guy – whether good or bad – that the west doesn’t like. Maduro has just shut down the Internet and all social media in the country, so that’s probably one thing at least he has in common with the Chinese govt.

  20. Warning everyone never, ever to vote for the maggot-shit of socialism which always and in every single country it’s ever been tried in, has led to utter poverty and ruin for the populace.

    Oh I don’t know Brexi. The social democracy of the Nordic countries seems to be doing fairly bloody well?

    Noel, I won’t pretend to understand the minutia of the political situation in Venezuela but just to say anecdotally that I have an association with a couple here, the husband Venezuelan and the wife Chilean, and they are both 110% behind the Maduro government.

    He’ll confirm the fact of it, the scale of it and the brilliance of it

    The vain narcissism so often associated with conspiracy therorists. You trust David but not Phantom?

  21. //I have an association with a couple here, the husband Venezuelan and the wife Chilean, and they are both 110% behind the Maduro government.//

    Paul, the fact that over 3 million people have fled Venezuela over the last few years (UN statistics), equivalent to around 10% of the country’s total population, gives you some idea of the failings of the Maduro govt. That’s a refugee crisis normally seen only in countries torn by war. Some estimates say 25 K people flee the country every day.

    Beware the individual example. They might be fine people, but that doesn’t mean that they’re right. And I notice that they choose not to live in Venezuela!

    That government has created great poverty in a country with great natural resources. Their state owned oil company has been grossly mismanaged by political appointees. Foreign investors have largely been driven out ( including one that I’ve spoken with )

    It will be very hard to turn that economy around now.

  23. No doubt you’re both correct. I don’t have the information on the fledgling Venezuelan Civil War, (for that’s what it is), largely because I’ve no great interest in it either way.

    The above was merely an anecdotal comment and not intended to be a defence or condemnation of anything.
