Standoff?

Venezuela wants to legally protect its borders and inspect all imports through customs like every other country does.

The US wants to illegally ram a truck full of rotten sandwiches across the border so it can create a pretext to bomb the country and steal their resources.

You know you're disparaging your boy Trump, correct?

This coup attempt is failing miserably and I read there is anger on both the US side and the Juan Guaido side. The US thought the military would quickly support Guaido, a very wrong reading of Venezuela. The military remains strongly behind Maduro, as do the majority of people. 

Also I read that no truck drivers can be found to drive the humanitarian aid from Colombia into Venezuela as Colombians believe they would be detained/ arrested by the Venezuelan military.

Trump was right in 2016--the US should not be involved in regime change attempts, it is too bad he doesn't listen to himself.

If it was genuine aid, it should go through but the people are wary of US military intervention and the military are simply protecting the border.

Trumpists will understand this necessity. Protecting Venezuela from all the American criminals, right?

He today threatened to send Venezuela back to the stone ages or something like that, to the Venezuela army. Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya etc. I feel sorry for them.

Ha-Ha...... Venezuela was swimming in money, but, but, but something went wrong. Terribly wrong. People fleeing, starving etc.

The people should rise up without US intervening. Something like 50+ countries are on the side for democracy.

Sunset chapter for dictator Maduro?
