Venezuela's Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza Sums up the Bay of Piglets Attempted Coup

UPDATE:  April 30, 2019 at 2:06 PST - Looks like the attempted "Bay of Piglets" coup has fizzled.  According to RT, the Lopez character that appeared with Random Guaido this morning outside the Caracas air base has now sought refuge in the Chilean Embassy...while about 25 of the "soldiers" [aka Bolton proxies] have sought refuge in the Brazilian Embassy....where they will soon be helicoptered off the Brazilian embassy roof...just like in dayz of yore in Saigon...lol...I just made that part up.

But Bolton better give it a rest.  He's now become even more of a laffing stock.

Helllooooo….Is anybody in there?

"....Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said the "right-wing extremists" would not succeed in fracturing the armed forces, which have largely stood with the socialist leader throughout the months of turmoil.

"Since 2002, we've seen the same pattern," he told The Associated Press, adding that most of Caracas was calm. "They call for violence, a coup, and send people into the streets so that there are confrontations and deaths. And then from the blood they try to construct a narrative,".

From an RT Op-Ed by John Wight

".....Bolton and his neocon chums are prisoners rather than students of history. Because if they were students, they would know that when the ‘idea’ of an empire is no longer able to sustain it in its power, all the military force in the world cannot hope to save it. The Persian, Greek, Roman, Ottoman, French and British Empires all went the same way and all for the same fundamental reason – namely that oppression breeds resistance and resistance to oppression carries a truth far more powerful than any number of aircraft carriers.

When Hugo Chavez said, “I hereby accuse the North American Empire of being the biggest menace to our planet,” he unleashed a thunderbolt of unimpeachable truth that belong in the tradition of all who have dared stand in defiance of the most violent and destructive power the world has ever known.

Unless Juan Guaido is a complete madman he must know something that we don't, something along the lines of impending direct US military support for his coup attempt.
Because what we do know is that the forces of imperialism thrive on pretext, and in inviting a heavy and entirely justifiable response by the security and military forces loyal to Venezuela's legitimately elected government, Mr Guaido is engaged in a high stakes game that will either see him rewarded with garlands in Washington or handcuffs in Caracas.

Whatever happens, the words of celebrated Cuban national liberation icon, Jose Marti, loom large: “I have lived inside the monster and know its entrails; and my sling is David's.” If today there is one people intimately acquainted with the entrails of this US hegemonic beast, it is the Venezuelan people...".

OT (?) for a moment...

Here is a video of Robert Steele on Turkish Television: Buy Russian Missiles, Leave NATO, Help Syria Kick the Zionists Out of the Golan…(via Public Intelligence Blog)

Even though there are a couple issues I have with exCIA (personally not trusting them...and one fact that he states that Jews in America hate the "Zionists" in Israel (without adding that most Jews in Israel are US dual citizens). But beyond that he flat out states what you, PFYT, NTS and other alt media have been saying. It is good to hear a US ex-something or other encourage Turkey especially to cut the US/NATO cords.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton has issued a final ultimatum to several members of the Venezuelan government in a bid to get them to turn on President Nicolas Maduro.

“.@vladimirpadrino, @Ivanr_HD, @MaikelMorenoTSJ: Your time is up. This is your last chance. Accept Interim President Guaido’s amnesty, protect the Constitution, and remove Maduro, and we will take you off our sanctions list. Stay with Maduro, and go down with the ship,” Bolton tweeted.

In response to Bolton’s tweet, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza tweeted back, “Dream on @AmbJohnBolto … Not today!”...

Good comments/links, Wallflower. We may not be able to go out into the streets of Caracas to actively support the legitimate government of Venezuela...but as keyboard warriors in the emerging new media of the alternative blogosphere...we can still do our bit.
