  Another Terrorist Plan in the Making by a Frustrated and Furious Trump

By Stella Calloni on April 3, 2019

The questionable “interim” President of Venezuela, Juan Guaido 
-inexistent figure created by the Donald Trump Administration violating 
all international laws that is trying to “govern” on behalf of 
Washington amidst an illegal action- recently acknowledged to opposition 
groups that attacks against the country’s electrical system were 
“necessary” to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro’s “regime” and he 
apologized to some of his supporters for the “discomfort” caused, as if 
such actions were not crimes against humanity.

Meanwhile, Venezuela’s National Constituent Assembly Chairman Diosdado 
Cabello noted that Guaido has recognized his linking to such attempts, 
adding that there are plans for this month of April aimed at undertaking 
the “final blow” under the protection of the United States. He also 
warned that the country must be prepared to face these and other threats.

As a matter of fact, leaked information reveals that Guaido and 
Venezuelan opposition groups met on  March 28 at El Paraiso, in Caracas, 
to review a “roadmap” to continue with pro-coup plans in their attempt 
to undermine the population regardless of its consequences.

According to Guaido, the operation was planned after the failure of the 
invasion prepared from Cucuta, Colombia, on February 23rd would be 
launched through a series of new and “more effective” actions and 
sabotage, including the arrival of experts not tied to the opposition to 
penetrate villages and cause destabilization.

These “experts” would be part of “freedom cells” and spread throughout 
the country. “They would be activated when Guaido instructs them on 
April 6 to start local protests on a large scale,” reported Whitney Webb 
for Mint Press News, according to a translation by Resumen 
Latinoamericano. Webb links this “operation” to a document released by 
the USAID regarding the creation of Rapid Expeditionary Development 
(RED) Teams. They would “be deployed as two-person teams and placed with 
‘non-traditional’ USAID partners executing a mix of offensive, 
defensive, and stability operations in extreme conditions.” These 
experts are no less than U.S. Special Forces (SF) and the CIA.

This way Guaido provided encouragement to those present in his meeting, 
after failing in their attacks on the country’s largest hydro electrical 
plant. He also promised that they were close to seizing power –probably 
around April 21- and that accusations against President Maduro have been 
prepared; for instance, genocide for “negligence” in his actions and 
claiming that power cuts were the result of inefficiency and abandonment.

Terrifying fake reports that no one has been able to confirm have been 
spread in the media as well, charging President Maduro with violations 
of human rights. Guaido himself is visiting different areas in the 
country but he has not been given a friendly reception because most of 
the population knows what “democratic coups” are about, like the one 
proposed by the man here created by agencies like the CIA and who is 
also asking for an invasion from the United States.

This is a coup supported by the hegemonic mass media, which undertook a 
criminal battle by misinforming, lying, and manipulating through orders 
of the U.S. Pentagon, paving the way for new accusations of the U.S. 
empire against “narco-dictatorships,” pointing now against the 
governments of Maduro and Bolivia’s Evo Morales.

The latter is under daily attack by the same groups of power, such as 
the Cuban American lobby -which has representatives in the U.S. Congress 
with a long history of terrorism against Cuba and Latin America-, whom 
the Trump Administration has granted power with criminal results in the 

Among these, it’s worth mentioning are delegates Marco Rubio, who is 
politically active against Venezuela, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who 
recently accused Evo Morales before the House of Representatives. They 
are following the pro-coup discourse addressed by Guaido, who recently 
announced the increase of campaigns to accuse Maduro of handing over the 
country to Russians, Chinese and Cubans, seeking to set up a people’s 
trial “for crimes of treason against the homeland,” calling on the 
Venezuelan people to go to the streets and end up with his Government.

Surprisingly, the man who self-proclaimed himself president of a country 
like a character out of a Latin American surrealist novel, is following 
orders from the empire and working to achieve a foreign invasion is now 
talking precisely about “treason to the homeland.”

In his “roadmap” that he explained in the meeting, Guaido announced the 
beginning of “operation freedom.” First, there would be a huge 
cacerolazo, or political protest by banging pots, which would be used as 
a signal for soldiers who support the operation, according to him, and 
would neutralize the Bolivarian National Armed Forces to make them 

This is similar to the plan prepared last February, which resulted in a 
striking defeat given the amount of money spent on the Cucuta operation 
and the mass desertion of soldiers that didn’t occur. Those few that 
were enticed to desert were left out to dry when the plan failed and now 
languish penniless in refugee camps on the Colombian border.

The United States is obviously insisting on a political opposition that 
has proved its weakness and inefficiency in tens of coups tested in 
Venezuela since 2002, when for the first time in history a coup armed, 
funded and advised by Washington was defeated in about 48 hours by the 
people and  the Armed Forces joining together in the streets. This 
marked a historical milestone that strengthened the people-Armed Forces 
relationship, plus over two million members of a militia formed by 
people’s organization. The United States knows very well these are not 
paramilitary soldiers, as those criminals they know and train in Colombia.

In his report about the new operation, Guaido called on attendants to 
save amounts of gasoline that would be used -this is not the first time 
this would happen- to set fire to anything they think represents the 
“regime”, as they call the legitimate and constitutional Government of 

Top targets would be police stations, health care centers, government 
buildings and offices, not only in Caracas but in the whole country. 
Furthermore, actions against the National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), 
isolating military barracks like Fuerte Tiuna in Caracas, and destroying 
thermal electrical plants with special war weapons.

Some of these actions, as in the case of police and National Guard 
stations, would be undertaken with mortars, larger caliber weapons and 
grenades; in the case of police vehicles, they would use incendiary 
bombs and weapons from Colombia.

Counterinsurgency exercises have been carried out before with the 
support of Colombian paramilitary soldiers and other foreign 
mercenaries, attacking important barracks and strategic sites. The idea 
is to finally advance and isolate the Government by seizing Miraflores 
Presidential Palace.

According to information released, Guaido has set targets such as the 
Palo Negro air base, in central state of Aragua; immobilizing or setting 
fire to aircrafts since he has insiders, according to himself.  Also, he 
is expecting to set fire to the port of Vargas state and to control 
airports, highways and others.

Through the different coup attempts in Venezuela we have seen that such 
violent actions were carried out before they could result in serious 
damage despite their failure: like arson against buildings, especially 
in 2014; attacks against health care centers; violence in the streets; 
snipers and the so-called “the way out” plan headed by Leopoldo Lopez.

Even the same night when Maduro won his first presidential election, on 
April 14, 2013, the defeated candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski called 
everyone to go to the streets and his supporters caused deaths and 
damage. The worst events took place in 2017, resulting in hundreds of 
deaths. Foreign paramilitary groups set fire to many people accused of 
being a Chavista and international agencies, governments and media said 
nothing about it.

Terrorist attempts against Venezuela’s electrical system last month are 
the most significant attacks so far following the bombings that caused 
similar results in Iraq, Libya, Syria and other countries. They are part 
of a low-intensity war tactic used to undermine the Maduro 
Administration and the Venezuelan people, whose resistance results have 
been unbearable for the empire.

It’s a sort of hidden intervention, led by a special technique expert 
handpicked as envoy to Venezuela by Donald Trump; none other than 
Elliott Abrams. This evil, ill-fated character participated in the 
United States secret war against the Sandinistas in Nicaragua during the 
eighties, when significant attempts took place such as the mining of 
ports and many other criminal actions.

Abrams’ experience include crimes against humanity in Central America 
and he was prosecuted for the Iran-Contra  affair, in which he violated 
the laws of his own country and killed over six hundred people in one 
town in El Salvador, among others. Nothing happened to him. Now he is 
being sent on a new mission to carry out no less damaging activities for 

IThe analogy with Nicaragua -and Libya and Syria in this century- is 
important given the bravery of the Venezuelan people, Government and the 
Armed Forces. They giving lessons about what patriotic resistance means 
with big sacrifices, defeating imperial plans, and they are the hope at 
this moment of the Latin America’s struggle for its definitive freedom. 
Meanwhile, it’s harder and harder for the United States to carry out 
Trump’s invasion attempt inside its own labyrinth.
