Venezuela’s Guaido won’t rule out authorising United States intervention

The United States, along with allies Colombia and Brazil, are trying to bring aid into Venezuela, a move that Maduro says is a precursor to a USA invasion.

It was not immediately clear how the humanitarian aid would be delivered across the border.

Mr Guaido, the country's National Assembly chief, says the May 2018 vote in which Mr Maduro won a second six-year term was a sham.

This is an opportunity for the Venezuelan armed forces to take part in an admirable humanitarian campaign.
'We're advancing in the development of health care for the good of the people'.

USAID hijacked for political purposes?

"While we work every day to reach the delivery of humanitarian aid, they insist in siphoning the medicines and food from those who urgently need it".

That awkward moment when American propaganda (L) looks exactly like North Korean propaganda.

"We may have different points of view and understandings of the causes of this crisis, but we share a similar objective: to contribute to a political, peaceful and democratic solution", said Mogherini.

"I think it's going to be next week, when we have formed the corps of volunteers and organized the distribution process".

Despite having the world's largest oil reserves, Venezuela is in a historic crisis after 20 years of socialist rule launched by the late President Hugo Chavez.

He said the aid should be given to the poor in the Colombian city of Cucuta, where the supplies are being stockpiled.

However, on the other side of the Tienditas border bridge, Venezuelan troops loyal to Maduro had blocked the road, heightening tensions with Washington.

Has America forgotten Operation Manna?

He was referring to the FBI's raid on Wednesday against the BSJI bank in San Juan, Puerto Rico, over alleged violations of US sanctions imposed on those who do business with Venezuela's government.

For years, the US has been implementing diplomatic pressure and economic sanctions against Venezuela. This is a time when compassion should be expressed for the long-suffering people of Venezuela by promoting, not curtailing, access to food and medicine.

Maduro's government has accused Guaido, who has galvanized Venezuela's opposition, of attempting to stage a US -directed coup. "People, people and more people bringing in humanitarian aid".

Using humanitarian aid to promote a military coup is repulsive and threatens to convert Venezuela in an American foreign policy clusterfuck similar to Vietnam, Iraq, Syria or Yemen.

The Contact Group chided Maduro over the deaths of 40 opposition protesters last month and told him to respect "the country's institutions, particularly the democratically elected National Assembly".

British airplanes dropped American food supplies to alleviate a starvation in Nazi-occupied Holland in 1945.

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that the coalition does not intend to impose a solution but is focused on finding answers to avoid violence or foreign intervention in Venezuela.

The only thing Venezuela had in abundance Friday was angry words as its main political players attacked each other in simultaneous news conferences while the nation teeters on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe.
