Venezuela accuses Colombia of attempting terrorist invasion

Postby Atheris » Sun May 03, 2020 8:47 pm

The actual title of the article was too long - you can read it in the following.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-52525209

The Venezuelan government has said it foiled an attempted sea incursion by "terrorist mercenaries" from Colombia.

In a televised address, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the group arrived on speedboats at the coastal state of La Guaira early on Sunday.

President Nicolás Maduro often accuses adversaries of attempting to overthrow him with the backing of the US.

Venezuela's opposition dismissed the allegations, saying the apparent incursion was staged.

Colombia described the government's assertion as unfounded. Venezuela broke off diplomatic relations with Colombia last year.

In the Venezuelan government's statement, Mr Reverol said the group had landed in the town of Macuto, about 21 miles (34km) north of the capital Caracas...

...But Juan Guaidó, who is recognised by more than 50 countries as Venezuela's legitimate leader, accused President Maduro's administration of trying to distract people from recent outbreaks of violence - including a deadly prison riot on Friday, and a gang battle in Caracas on Saturday night.

"The regime is seeking to divert attention with a supposed incident plagued with inconsistencies, doubts and contradictions," his press team said.

Mr Guaidó has the backing of Washington, which has vowed to use tough sanctions to force President Maduro and the Socialist Party out of office.


Well, looks like Venezuela and Colombia are at it now. Venezuela has accused Colombia of sending "terrorist" mercenaries to invade Venezuela. Guaido has accused Maduro of shifting focus away from the political crisis in Venezuela. Looks like a storm is a-coming, boys.

Personally, I think Guaido is correct. I don't think Venezuela would risk war with Colombia, especially given their political and economic state, which is basically South Sudan times 500, and I'm sure that's not a joke.

Bog standard South American politics. When you can't run your country and things are on fire find a foreign target to focus everyones attention on.

To be fair, that’s kind of a universal thing.

If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.
Our dream of greatness is historical necessity, yours is fascism.

Venezuela has captured American mercenaries allegedly involved in this plot. This has seemingly been confirmed by Jordan Goudreau, head of American mercenary company Silvercorp USA.
