It was a false-flag attack:
The torching of trucks purportedly ferrying US food and medicines across the border from Colombia was patently a planned provocation. Credible video footage and witnesses attested to the arson being carried out by supporters of the US-backed opposition figure Juan Guaido.
The vehicles never even made it to the crossing point where Venezuelan national guards were deployed.
Yet, at the Lima Group summit held – no coincidence – in the Colombian capital, Bogota on Monday, Guaido and US Vice President Mike Pence brazenly spouted lies that the “sadistic” Venezuelan military under President Nicolas Maduro had caused the destruction of vital aid supplies intended for “suffering people.” [Source]
Can Trump-Pence pull a Bush-Cheney in Venezuela? No! Russia wasn't in Iraq. Russia wasn't nearly as strong and capable as it is now. The network of nations against Trump-Pence on Venezuela is more connected and more prepared to deny Trump-Pence's "authority" over them. Even the Lima Group isn't going along.
If Trump-Pence tries to pull a huge false flag, Putin will not sit back and allow the US to drum up fake support within the American electorate and invade Venezuela. He will fight. He will fight in Venezuela because he doesn't want to be fighting off NATO and it's terrorists in Moscow.
U.S. President Donald J. Trump, don't be stupid. Tell your clown-neocon advisers to shut up.
