Marcos questions why the US is so passive
in the face of a Marxist takeover of Latin America,
and Cuba sending troops to Venezuela.
"It is amazing that the US has just forgotten about a continent just south of the border, which is ganging up with US haters Russia and China to implement a Marxist revolution, while America is spending trillions in the other side of the world in Afghanistan and Iraq. "
Since February 12th, Youth Day in Venezuela, the country has been in chaos. Hundreds of thousands of students followed by millions of peaceful protesters demanded an end to the Marxist dictatorship, and the betrayal of the country to Cuba, and violence and corruption, in the largest demonstrations in the history of the country.
Unfortunately, these demonstrators met with random rifle and even machine gun shots. Government thugs, including Cuban agents, just arrive in motorcycles and start shooting at the crowds. On Youtube, we can see soldiers shooting at random cars, apartment buildings and even the people who are filming with their phones, in situations that remind us of Syria and Libya. Meanwhile, Russian made Sukhoi jet fighters fly low over the crowds, in order to terrify people.
The government talks about 6 or 7 dead, but the reality must be much, much worse. The students under arrest are being tortured with electricity and forced to perform oral sex with the guards. Heart breaking pictures and movies are shared everyday on the internet.
(LEFT, CUBAN TROOPS ARRIVING IN VENEZUELA)
There are 60,000 Cubans in the country, in every area of the government, working as "consultants". Most are simply political agents with training in terrorism. There are reports and pictures of Cuban soldiers arriving en masse to Venezuela, including the elite troops "Avispas Negras", specialized in assassination and political sabotage.
Maduro tried to shut down Twitter in order to prevent dissemination of news. He also shut down a TV channel and expelled CNN reporters from the country. Now he is shutting down internet and electricity selectively in several cities that are harboring protests. People are still in the streets.
WHY PEOPLE DON'T LIKE MADURO
Maduro used to be a bus driver before being sent to Cuba for training in political sabotage and union mobilization. This thug gained the confidence of Chavez and eventually was appointed to be his successor in a close (2000 votes difference) election that was marked by more than 1000 cases of documented fraud and complete monopoly of communication by the government. Now it has been revealed that Maduro may not even be Venezuelan, but was born in Colombia, in Ocaña, a city near the border.
(Left, Food rationing. People in line, like in Soviet times, being stamped with a queue number)
Venezuela has the second largest oil reserves in the world and used to be the main exporter of oil to the US. Chavez and his minion have destroyed this fabulously rich country. Official inflation is 56%, but real one is probably much higher. 28% of basic staples are missing from the market shelves, including chicken, sugar and even toilet paper, which had to be imported in a hurry and became a source of jokes. Maduro even ordered the invasion of the factory. Since there are no dollars needed to import parts and raw materials, factories such as Toyota and GM have closed doors.
Violence in Venezuela is more severe than in regions at war. Some sources talk about 30,000 murdered each year, or a whopping 100 dead per 100K inhabitants. In the US, allegedly a violent country, this number is 4.7.
More than 90% of these murders are never solved. Maduro`s answer is to blame TV soap operas for the killing. This kind of psychotic behaviour is common to him, a man who says he talked to the soul of Chavez in a little bird and saw his face on a wall in a subway construction site.
Last November, Maduro became a de-facto dictator by assuming power to rule by decree. He has complete control over the press, and only approves the purchase of printing paper for political allies. The only opposition TV network, Globovision, was forced into bankruptcy and sold.
To add a surreal touch to the situation, Chavez's two daughters are still living like princesses in the Presidential Palace, throwing parties and lounging at the pool.
Lula, the former president of Brazil, is in Cuba at this moment, discussing the Venezuelan problem with his boss Castro. His party is very afraid that Brazil might follow the example with demonstrations during the World Cup in June. He and Fidel are mainly responsible for the plan that brought almost all of South America to Marxism, through the alliance of Communist political parties and a terrorist organization called Forum de São Paulo, created in 1990 to fill the void left by the fall of the USSR. With the exception of Colombia, Paraguay, Panama and the Guyanas, the plan has been a total success. All of Latin America is now, in varied levels, on the hands of the Marxists.
Fidel has said that without Venezuelan oil, the Revolution (in the continent) would fail, and that Maduro was his man in Caracas. One country is helping the other, and Brazil, the richer brother, is spending the most. Dilma from Brazil has just given a new harbor to Cuba (Porto Mariel) at a cost of US$ 1 BI and built a refinery for Chavez.Meanwhile, Brazilian infrastructure is falling apart. On the other hand, Chavez has given money to the election of Kirchner in Argentina. And so it goes. Sovereignty is gone.
Venezuela is the trial ground for the takeover. The Workers party in Brazil has started exactly the same strategy used in Caracas, by importing thousands of makeshift Cuban doctors (who have the education of nurses) mixed with political agents from Havana`s secret service, breaking all the laws in Brazil. These doctors receive only 10% of the wages paid directly to Castro and many have already defected, even though their families remain in Cuba as hostages . Also, most of the countries in the region have military agreements with China and Russia. A former aide to a Congressman in Brazil has spoken about the use of Mariel Port to bring military equipment and foreign personnel from China and Russia.
Last January, these Marxist countries got together for the Celac meeting (Summit Conference of the Latin America States), which exclude the USA and Canada. It is amazing that the US has forgotten about a continent just south of the border, which is ganging up together with US haters Russia and China to implement a Marxist revolution, while America is spending trillions in the other side of the world in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The explanation is that Latin America is being prepared to be one of the ten regions in the coming New World Order. Cuba, a bloody dictatorship which has murdered more than 100K people, has been protected for 60 years so far. The Bay of Pigs invasion was a hoax. Castro was as safe as if he were in Rothschild`s guest room.
Unfortunately, in contrast with the moderate integration of the European Union or NAFTA, the integration of Latin America is being done under the red flag of Marxism, so the continent will remain poor and underdeveloped forever. People in the region will not accept this lightly, and much blood will flow. Citizens in Venezuela and the neighbor countries just want a future to their kids, away from the boots of Cuban soldiers. It is not much to ask for.
First Comment from Dan
I hadn't had time to catch up on this till today-------------- it's just another 'US backed OTPOR' 'revolution. So familiar.
The leader of the "opposition" is Leopoldo Lopez Mendoza, a Harvard graduate who dresses like a frat boy He looks like a crypto-Kennedy. Maybe Ted volunteered to stud a bunch of bastard sons around the world.
" In 2006, López was the leader of the opposition to President Chávez, as well as a social activist working for "grass-roots judicial reform".
I think media presentations are deliberately throwing out a snow screen disinformation so that people don't associate these 'revolutions'.
They're all easy to spot when you know the drill.
(I concur with Bruce, though I haven't done the research to confirm yet but it's a damn good lead..)
Makow: Typical- they control both sides.
The reaction to my article in your site and on Infowars makes me concerned. Conspiracy researchers hate the US so much that they tend to see everything as a CIA operation, trying to fit everything they see to their worldview.
The point of the article is exactly the contrary: the US has forgotten about Latin America and is practically powerless in the region. No CIA operation puts two million people in the streets, it is the corruption and the violence of the government for 15 years that does. Lopez is a newcomer, he may be have studied at Harvard (so what?), he may profit of the outcome, but he didn`t initiate anything. In their foolish eagerness to prove their point, these supposedly intelligent conspiracy nuts can`t see the most evident and documented real conspiracy : the Forum of Sao Paulo, of which they know nothing about.
It is the typical American arrogance in action: if it is not related somehow to the US, it doesn`t matter. Paradoxically, even in their hatred of America, these guys show their chauvinism.
The same thought applies to Ukraine. It is possible that the US is backing the protests, but they would never exist if Ukranians were not scared and tired of Russian misconduct. Here in Brazil, millions of people went to the streets last June and I can assure you that no CIA agent told us to do so. Wake up, people, the real world is much more complex than you think. The new world order doesn`t control everything yet, there are many unexpected loose ties in their strategy.
