On the eve of another US war for oil, Abby Martin debunks the most repeated myths about Venezuela and uncovers how US sanctions are crimes against humanity with UN investigator and human rights Rapporteur Alfred De Zayas.
I say Trump is bluffing because if he's not, it will cost him the Presidency. I'm saying he knows this because it's all too obvious. Bolton doesn't give a crap, but Trump does. Therefore, if Putin backs Maduro enough, the US will simply fail to overthrow Maduro. Putin too knows all of this. Russian governmental aid is already arriving in Venezuela. Unfortunately, Xi of China is (so far) too stupid to make the right moves. He hates the Venezuelan system. He hates democracy. Putin doesn't.
