With the world’s focus on Ukraine and Malaysia airline 370, People may not be aware of what is happening in Venezuela.
I think that much of the Ukrainian theatre is staged, heck I would not be surprised if the Russian federation and the Western Bloc had a hidden agenda agreeing to split Ukraine (West and East) to EU and Russian spheres of influence!
Now they could not televise that deal and expect the people of the world to simply go along with arbitrarily selling of a sovereign nation without a global outcry, right?
But imagine a paid force within the nation destabilized the sovereign nation, with their corrupt politicians and, conveniently, two opposing rivals step in offering assistance for the Ukrainians to choose sides.
Doesn’t that sound familiar?
Don’t we see that “divide and conquer“, “Good Cop and Bad Cop“, and “carrot and stick” strategy or tactic in the politics of every nation?
The Liberal vs Conservative, or the Left vs Right, the Democrats vs Republicans is the model of modern political parties managing government elections…
So let us not be fooled again with Ukraine’s theatrics.
The side-effect of the Obama-Putin Standoff is Wealthy investors are spooked and confused where to safely store or hedge their wealth. We see Capital movement…
Time to look at Venezuela:
CARACAS – Venezuela’s foreign minister lambasted U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday as a “murderer” fomenting unrest that has killed 28 people in the South American OPEC member nation.
Venezuela Also Is Being Overthrown By The Criminal Regime In Washington
By Paul Craig Roberts
The Washington orchestrated coup in Ukraine has kept Venezuela out of the headlines.
A confrontation with nuclear armed Russia is more dangerous than with Venezuela. But the violence that Washington has unleashed on Venezuela almost simultaneously with Ukraine is testimony to Washington’s stark criminality.
South America has always consisted of a tiny Spanish elite with all the money and power ruling over large majority populations of indigenous peoples who have not had political representation. In Venezuela, Chavez broke this pattern. An indigenous president was elected who represented the people and worked in their behalf instead of looting the country. Chavez became a role model, and indigenous presidents were elected in Ecuador and Bolivia.
Chavez was hated by Washington and demonized by American presstitutes. When Chavez died of cancer, Washington celebrated.
If Washington reconquers Venezuela and Ecuador, Bolivia will be next. Then Brazil. Washington has its sights on Brazil, because the country is a member of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), and Washington intends to destroy this organization before the countries can establish a trading bloc that does not use the US
Not long ago a US official said that as soon as we (Washington) get Russia in a bind, we will deal with the upstarts in South America.
The program is on schedule.

[“snipers” fired at the people.. Sounds similar to Ukraine’s Coup d’etat!]
Tres personas murieron baleadas este miércoles en diferentes hechos durante protestas en el estado de Carabobo, norte de Venezuela, que elevan al menos a 24 la cifra de fallecidos en las manifestaciones contra el gobierno de Nicolás Maduro, informaron autoridades locales.
Dos de las víctimas, un estudiante y un civil, murieron durante manifestaciones en la localidad de La Isabelica, en Valencia (capital de Carabobo), mientras un efectivo de la Guardia Nacional Bolivariana (GNB) falleció en el municipio de Naguanagua.
“Francotiradores dispararon contra su propia gente que estaba armando una barricada en plena vía (en La Isabelica) y lamentablemente hay un fallecido y varios heridos”, dijo al canal estatal VTV Francisco Ameliach, gobernador oficialista de Carabobo.
Sin embargo, la prensa local indicó que el joven Jesús Acosta, de 20 años y estudiante de la Universidad de Carabobo, falleció por un disparo “en la cabeza” cuando se encontraba “en las cercanías de su vivienda” en La Isabelica, aunque “no participaba en las protestas”.
