Trump Won’t Rule Out Military Option In North Korea…aah I mean Venezuela

PRESS TV      Posted Fri., Aug.11, 2017

“I’m not going to rule out a military option, we have many options for Venezuela,” the president said on Friday at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, calling the current situation there “a mess.”

Venezuela has been reeling from unrest for several months in a crisis caused by political disagreements — including on the formation of the National Constituent Assembly — and shortages of food and medicine and hyperinflation.

The opposition says the leftist government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is to blame for the crisis, but the government accuses foreign powers and “right-wing terrorists” for the unrest.

Maduro has reiterated that the assembly held supreme powers over all the three branches of the government.

Washington slammed Caracas for the establishment of the assembly, calling the institution “illegitimate” and in service of a “dictator.”

On July 17, Trump said Maduro “dreams of becoming a dictator,” noting that “the United States will not stand by as Venezuela crumbles.”

The Venezuelan government held an election on July 30 and the ruling socialist party won the vote.

The day after election, the US slapped sanctions on Maduro and broadened the sanctions later this week by imposing bans against several members of the assembly.

On Thursday, Maduro vowed to stand up to the US for its “imperialistic” behavior.

“We will never cede to foreign powers,” he said in a speech at the assembly and added that Trump had to end his “imperialist aggression” toward Venezuela.

Meanwhile, Peru has decided to expel Venezuela’s ambassador to Lima in condemnation of Venezuela’s new legislative superbody.

The ambassador, Diego Molero, has five days to leave Peru, the country’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said Friday.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
