Let the Venezuelans settle their problems themselves.

I repeat these words from amigo.M.S.Islam and I agree.


One question, you would like your country to be invaded by another?


See actual examples from today, from countries that were attacked.Iraq Libya etc.etc.
Today these countries are worse off.


Everyone should strive for peace.
The world is two days one has passed.

If Venezuela does not accept international aid, it is because it does not need alms, because it has money to buy the food and the medicines, only that the imperalismo does not want because of its interests.



Só é cêgo quem não quer ver. »»» It is only the one who does not want to see.
I am sure that the surrounding countries would be happy to sell Venezuela food and medicine but is not willing to take a currency that is depreciating in value at the rate of close to 2.7 million percent per year. You think the people of Venezuela should starve to death rather than Maduro accept aid? Maybe Maduro can pay for the food and medicine with oil?

I note that almost all the countries in South America and the rest of the world are backing Guiado’.

hello David Vagamundo.

I do not think anything, each one commands in his house, that is to say, each people commands in their country. For my part, I wish the best for Venezuela.

My country is in favor of a military uprising, I am against it.


Eu não acho nada,cada um manda na sua casa,quer dizer cada pôvo manda no seu país. De minha parte desejo o melhor para a Venezuela.

Meu país é a favor de uma ivasão militar,eu sou contra.

I’m in favor of the military ceasing support of Maduro. If that happened, I don’t see that there would be bloodshed; in fact the reverse. I’ve read that the military has been offerred amnesty if they cease supporting Maduro. So what I would like to see is the military return to the barracks and cease involvement in politics.

A military uprising is unlikely at this point, they've essentially been bribed, as the military personnel and their families are the least negatively effected by the economic woes. As long as Maduro can keep bribing them, they'll largely stay loyal. That and they still haven't been called out for a massive operation to quell civilian unrest, still never been asked to machine gun a crowd, which would likely be the culminating type of incident to incite mass unrest, infighting, and desertions within the military, at least the enlisted and lower officer ranks (while upper ranks are all held by politically approved socialist/marxist sympathizers).

Maduro is weakening on a daily basis. Eventually he'll have to resort to grand violence to stay in power. When that does, his house of cards will star collapsing. It will give casus belli for the opposition to start using guerrilla warfare. And the US will have more justification to intervene militarily, like with clandestine CIA and special operations forces support.

The problem is that the military is Venezuela is supporting Maduro because they know if the system changes, even if they are offered amnesty, they won’t be able to stay keep all the benefits they have now and many would be discharged from the army service and it not likely they’d be able to find a decent jobs once Maduro is ousted. I do think,however, that Maduro’s days are numbered one way or another. The only victims in all this are the oridinary people in Venezuela who struggle to survive and make ends meet. I’m afraid that in the near future, Venezuela will become a country for another Russo-American proxy war.

Excuse my expression.Maduro is being dumb. Only he can avoid a military invasion or civil war.
But that means him and current power elite of Venezuela must surrender full power. It means not only they lose their power, their jobs, their perks, their ability to do favors for others, their protection. Suddenly they are vulnerable.

So stay in power, continue reaping rewards, assume that the US won't have the guts to intervene, and that they can ride it out until the price of oil rises again. Or give up power and face the major life altering negative consequences without even putting up a real fight.

He'll stay in as long as he can. A guy like Maduro never would have gotten to where he is without being a fighter, a take no prisoners ambitious go-getter. He's dumb as a rock, corrupt, but he's not weak or a defeatist, those people simply do not rise to high levels in any real facet in life.

One day the bomb will blow up in Venezuela.
Portugal had its day the bomb in 25 April in 1974 Marcello Caetano thought that it would govern Portugal with more years of dictatorship and the salvation of Portugal was its surrender that avoided a civil war.
God grant that Venezuela will not be overrun by foreign militaries and free them from civil war.
