Venezuela's Wag the Dog........

Yeah, I've got to throw the bullshit flag on this one....... The United States and it's current liberal/progressive/socialist administration would never allow the overt, covert or clandestine, over throw of another socialist government. Maybe true during the Bush administration but not now. You're going to have to find another scapegoat Venezuela.

This is how liberal/progressive/socialist/communists governments work, as they progress to full communism they become 99.9% corrupt and when the country is in economic crisis they blame someone else.

Greece, another failed liberal/progressive/socialist government. In four more months Greece will be out of loans.... should be interesting.



Mayor’s Arrest on Sedition Charges Deepens Sense of Crisis in Venezuela
By GIRISH GUPTAFEB. 20, 2015

CARACAS, Venezuela — The abrupt arrest of the mayor of Caracas on accusations that he had plotted an American-backed overthrow of the government threatened to plunge Venezuela into new political convulsions on Friday, as his supporters rallied in the capital and pockets of protest erupted elsewhere.

The arrest of the mayor, Antonio Ledezma, on Thursday evening by intelligence agents who fired weapons in the air, was viewed by the opposition as the kidnapping of a political rival to President Nicolás Maduro.

Mr. Ledezma’s backers called it another assault on democracy in Venezuela, the oil-endowed nation that has been reeling from a severe economic decline under the watch of an increasingly unpopular president.

Many opposition figures said Mr. Maduro, desperate to divert attention from Venezuela’s internal ills and his own disapproval ratings, concocted Mr. Ledezma’s arrest.

Mr. Maduro, the protégé of Venezuela’s longtime leader Hugo Chávez, often castigates the United States, accusing it of trying to topple his government. He promised, in a nearly three-hour speech soon after the mayor’s arrest, to release evidence to demonstrate what he called the secret American plot to topple him.

Oh, they have a party (aka the Oscars) to go to tonight, to show off their self-importance.

They can't be bothered with such trivial matters as this right now.
They'll get around to it when their names start fading in the spotlight .... again.

How many years has the leadership of Venezuela been claiming that the U.S. was going to invade, overthrow the government, etc.?

At what point does the claim lose credibility?

That is one of the liberal/progressive strengths. They will never give up...unlike many (RHINO's) that parade as conservatives.
