Guaido 1, regime 0, foreign press out
Venezuela News And Views ^ | 3/4/2019 | Daniel Duquenal

And thus Juan Guaido returned to Venezuela. Through the normal entry point at Maiquetia airport. He went in a triumphant caravan all the way to Caracas to attend a rally. That caravan and rally were immense...

….it was a major defeat for chavismo that had to bow to international pressure, and to a popular will favoring Guaido for which denial is now useless. True, several ambassadors were waiting for Guaido in Maiquetia to shepherd him to Caracas. But had the regime wanted to arrest Guaido it would have done so at customs....

….the regime caved in, at least for now. Contrary to what many said, that February 23 battle of Cucuta showed the resilience of Maduro, the battle was lost by the regime. Guaido is the one imposing the agenda. His scene on the highway to Caracas when his caravan stopped in front of public housing to let Guaido climbing on a car and wave the flag in front of a delirious crowd had a taste of the nails being planted on the regime's coffin. the press began to slowly bury Guaido because he was unable to force the entry of the humanitarian aid. Was he? Nobody serious in Venezuela expected the aid to enter. We all knew it was a show of strength, that the objective was elsewhere. How could so many papers, from the NYT down be so gullible as to write up for some that Maduro was resilient, that the opposition was on its way to yet another big disappointment and what nonsense.

True, that battle to unseat the regime is far from won, but I am almost willing to find it somewhat suspicious for some US papers to be hinting a premature Guaido burial lest Trump would be seen scoring a point....

Daniel Duquenal tells the story of a triumphant arrival of Guaido back home today and the media bias in the reporting which he notes is probably based on the fact that Trump supports Guaido.

Thanks for posting this. Some Freepers don’t realize how important this is, but it’s a major moment and if socialism and its attendant dictator can be ousted from VZ, that means there’s hope for other places (including Cuba).
