The quixotic US president, Donald Trump, and his thuggish administration are making frenzied efforts to undermine the peace of independent countries and change their system of government, but without success.
latest target is Venezuela, where they have illegally endorsed the controversial National Assembly Chairman, Juan Guaido, as president, which is not only a blatant meddling into the internal affairs of an independent country, but follows a pattern in US foreign policy whereby leaders not readily pliable to American corporate interests get replaced in an uprising generously sponsored and minutely directed from Washington.
As observers point out, due to the abrasive nature of Trump’s administration, true US motifs are coming into the open: it is all about money, since Venezuela is one of the richest countries in terms of oil, which the American companies are intent upon looting by replacing the legitimate government of Nicolas Maduro.
As US National Security Adviser, the bespectacled bozo John Bolton, who is one of the most devilish opponents of democracy and human rights, recently said: "It will make a big difference to the US economy if we could have American oil companies invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela.”
For Bolton and people who propelled him into his current position, Venezuela regime change is a "big business opportunity”.
In this regard, Guaido, the self-proclaimed "president,” in view of his slavish attitude to the US, has already become a traitor to his own nation as is evident by his endorsement of the new round of the illegal US sanctions to cripple Venezuela’s economy, thereby harming the livelihood of ordinary people.
The US sanctions against the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA is meant to squeeze out Rosneft – Russia’s main investor in the Venezuelan petroleum sector. At the same time, the $50 billion that China has lent to Venezuela through oil-for-loan agreements will also be jeopardized.
The US arrogantly admits that regime change attempts in Venezuela are part of a bigger strategy to exert greater US influence over Latin America. It means Nicaragua and Cuba are next on the list of American state terrorism.
The Venezuelan military, however, is loyal to Maduro and the independent countries of the world, including the Islamic Republic of Iran ready to help the legal government of Maduro.
Russia is resolved that the US will not succeed, and so is China. This means Venezuela may well become the next Syria, if not Vietnam for the US.
Interestingly, Washington is facing another debacle and hopefully it will prove to be the last nail in the coffin of the US.
