Posted on 01/23/2019 12:07:31 PM PST by detective
The global effort to persuade the Venezuelan military to begin to revolt against their commanders - by phone calls, web postings, other means, is starting to kick in. The Venezuelan dictatorship said it put down its first revolt from a National Guard unit out in a really miserable slum of Caracas called Petare. Here's the details of what went down in Caracas from the Associated Press:
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) Venezuelas government said Monday it put down a mutiny by a National Guard unit in a poor neighborhood a few miles (kilometers) from Venezuelas presidential palace.
The uprising triggered protests in the same neighborhood, which were dispersed with tear gas as residents set fire to a street barricade of trash and chanted demands that President Nicolas Maduro leave power.
The armed forces in a statement said that it had captured all those involved in what it described as treasonous acts motivated by obscure interests tied to the far right.

Trump is succeeding in Venezuela.
I was shocked to see Trudeau agree on this.
Paging miss occasional-cortex
Eat the enemy- the fat ones!
I’m going to miss the socialist Chavistas in Venezuela.

How apropo that I happen to be reading July 20 by HH Kirst. Unfortunately, that coup failed.
Sounds like the Freedom Tree is about to get watered.
There’s still Cuba, although ironically their economy’s been diversified with tony night clubs and restaurants, and brothels, of course. Are there any purely socialist countries left?

Gosh, didn’t you know that REAL “democratic” socialism has never been tried? Democratic socialism is completely different than Venezuelan socialism. That’s because Venezuelan socialism is just right wing corruption; not socialism. (/s)
Did “Feel the Burn” Sanders chime in on this yet?
I think Cuba is the ultimate prize in this. If Venezuela falls, Cuba may not be far behind.
Sean Penn is deeply saddened.
I’m waiting for Nanzi P. to send a letter to Maduro
asking him to address the congress on the state of
Friendly word of advice to any Cubans in Venezuela who have participated in atrocities committed against its citizens. Get out - NOW! You’re not going to like the new government.
Cuba could become great again. Imagine. Cigars. Jazz. Baseball. Commerce. Chicks in g-strings dancing around with fruit on their heads—OK. Maybe not that.
Funny thing is, it used to be if Venezuela or Cuba falls, the president of one was going to find safe haven in the other. Now there’s nowhere to run.
