Full title..................Was Venezuela 'drone attack' faked? Firefighters claim explosion in 'assassination bid' was actually a GAS TANK blowing up and TV cameras failed to capture footage of the 'drones' - but President Maduro rounds up political opponents..................... President Nicolas Maduro claims he was the subject of an assassination plot using explosives-rigged drones Socialist premier claimed those responsible were 'far-right' Venezuelan exiles living in Florida and Colombia Pointed finger at Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos who's criticized him for undermining democracy Maduro was seen addressing a military parade on live TV before looking to the sky after hearing an explosion A terrified look crossed his face before he was bundled away by uniformed aides carrying bulletproof shields Hundreds of soldiers who were assembled in neat rows suddenly scattered in all directions amid screaming But three fire officials said the incident was actually a gas tank explosion in an apartment nearby

The people on the stage and later the troops on the ground that broke ranks and scattered did not seem to be reacting to any event in their local area, like a drone crashing to the ground or such. They just panicked.
Maduro sounds like a drone himself, btw.
I’ll bet that all the firemen and officials have been rounded up and they and their extended family will disappear.
Our Leftists and Progressives are taking notes for a “How It’s Done” pamphlet.
Maduro should be used to the sound of a bus backfiring.
Then, why was everyone looking up in the sky?
My thought exactly.
Someone should gather up a dozen Latino comedians, and make the Maduro ‘life-story’ movie....going from bus-driver to dictator.
Did the Bus Driver crap his pants or not
Perhaps if it was as film of the alleged gas explosion showed, several storeys up.
The Reichstag Fire.
Actually, I have done a lot of translating about Latin American guerrilla bands (FARC,etc) and the propane tank was a weapon of choice. The tanks are used for cooking throughout Latin America so theyre easy to come by. Theyd put them onto a launcher and send them at a target (a military unit, a police car or a just a private house) and, while they couldnt go enormously far and werent enormously accurate, they blew up and did the job.
I doubt that this was a drone, because theyre pretty accurate, and in any case, theyre hard to see. The soldiers were running because they saw something and they were running away from where they thought it would land.
It looks to me as if the tank overshot and crashed into a building before it exploded. Or those photos may simply have been of the place from which it was launched and it failed to explode at all.
This guy needs to de droned
Same with the mullahs
ISIS morons havent done much lately
Taliban asswipes are scared
Maduro has run out of excuses for the epic failure in the country. Chavez was just getting started with the country's downfall. Maduro is driving the final spikes into the coffin.
For a long time it was alleged US interference that was causing the country to sink. But all that followed were empty grocery shelves and no toilet paper next to the commode.
Inflation is supposed to reach 1,000,000% this year. And Maduro finally had to admit this last week that socialism isn't working.
So the gig is up. I suspect this "assassination" attempt was faked to place blame for his failures and curry sympathy from the masses. 'Cause Nicolás ain't got nothing else.
Maduro says the "drone" (which nobody can prove the existence of) was sent by Columbia. Does he realize that Columbia, along with Ecuador, have taken in 1.3 million Venezuelan economic refugees in 2018 so far?
The finale will be Maduro seeking safe harbor with Castro in Cuba. Or he really will be successfully assassinated.
Or he will start murdering off his opposition, leaders first, then the followers, to consolidate his power.
I don't see how Venezuela can keep the lights on much longer. But critics like me have been saying the same thing for years. Maybe Maduro will endure.
My money is on him stealing a big hunk of the treasury and leaving out the back door in the middle of the night to a safe haven before the public murders him.
His REAL name is Nicholas Manure-o.
