April 30, 2019 - Venezuelan Coup
« on: April 30, 2019, 10:43:15 AM »
As I am posting this it appears that a military coup is going forward to oust current Venezuela President Maduro. Here are a few articles in no particular order reporting on this event. 

American Partisan
Mass protests are scheduled in Venezuela as conditions have continued to deteriorate under the socialist Maduro regime. Although the rally in Barquisimeto was cancelled due to opposition party leader Juan Guaido being restricted from travelling outside the nation’s capital, mass unrest is planned for Wednesday which could be the spark for a larger internal action. Simultaneously expect a large scale crackdown on part of the government against those protesting for a society free of socialist nepotism, incompetence and oppression.

Thomas Reuters Foundation
Several dozen armed men in military uniform accompanying Guaido clashed with soldiers supporting Maduro at a protest outside the La Carlota air base, Reuters witnesses said, but the incident fizzled out and did not appear to be part of an immediate attempt by the opposition to take power by force.

Guaido, in a video posted on Twitter earlier on Tuesday, said he had begun the "final phase" of his campaign to topple Maduro, calling on Venezuelans and the military to back him.


BBC
Venezuelan authorities say they are putting down a small coup attempt after opposition leader Juan Guaidó announced he was in the "final phase" of ending President Nicolás Maduro's rule.

He appeared in a video with uniformed men, saying he had military support.

Mr Guaidó, who declared himself interim president in January, called for more members of the military to help him end Mr Maduro's "usurpation" of power.


Politico
President Donald Trump’s top aides on Tuesday publicly backed an attempted coup in Venezuela, where opposition leaders have teamed with a band of rebellious soldiers in an effort to oust strongman leader Nicolás Maduro.

Supporting the uprising is a risky proposition for the Trump administration. Maduro, who retains the loyalty of many of his military generals, may survive and many Latin Americans resent America’s history of backing coups throughout the region. Russia and Cuba are also propping up Maduro.


If Maduro has a tight reign on his military, I suspect this coup will be averted and Guaidó will be shot. If Guaidó is successful, I suspect US Special Forces where providing the guidance behind the scenes. We will all know the outcome within the next 48-hours or so. Stay tuned.  :popcorn:

I wonder if the Russians or Chinese will come in to help Maduro? If they do I suspect Maduro will win out.

Ive been trying to follow the videos but its difficult to tell who is fighting for what? The white armored vehicles could be on either side and even on both sides...

Either way the S has started to HTF down there and next nov. could look the same up here

Also, 100% chance that Russia is already helping with Intel at minimum and those infamous "little green men".
Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.

Thats what happens when govt takes guns.  MSNBC makes some good arguments in favor of gun freedom without realizing it.

If you need a second magazine, its time to call in air support.

I saw this yesterday and juat laughed. It was the perfect 2A argument.
