Attack on Venezuela 1st step in US Attempt to Recolonize Latin
February 22, 2019
The United States has relaunched its colonialist aspirations against
Latin America, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro warned
Thursday during an interview with the Iranian media HispanTV,
adding that the Venezuelan military was ready to defend the independence
and sovereignty of the Latin American nation.
"America for Americans
that is, all our America for them, all our riches and all our power for
them," Maduro said and added that Venezuela is currently at center of an
imperialist attack "because they believe that, by reversing and
destroying the Bolivarian Revolution, they will be able to recolonize
and dominate the entire continent."
In Maduro's opinion, the U.S. President Donald Trump
"has allowed himself to be led to an extremist position of foolishness,
to an unattractive position. In addition, he has hinted his true desire
to dominate, conquer, and subdue Venezuela."
The Venezuelan leader also denounced that, besides being part of the
U.S. geopolitical aspirations in Latin America, Trump’s interventionist
attitudes towards Venezuela are triggered by the desire to seize the
country's enormous natural and mineral resources.
"Trump's problem is" Venezuela's riches, oil, gold, gas, strategic
minerals, wealth, water," to which the great strength of the country is
added when it comes to controlling its own model economic, political,
social and cultural "added Maduro.
According to President Maduro, most of the polls show that more than 90
percent of Venezuelans reject any U.S. military aggression. This is so
because his nation is "united" around the rejection of Trump's statements.
Maduro emphasized that "Venezuela is for Venezuela," and pointed out
that the entire offensive against his nation is "a test."
"I'm sure that these challenges and these tests will leave us more
strengthened. I'm more than sure of that," he predicted.
Regarding the U.S. attempts to provoke a military uprising in Venezuela,
President Maduro stated that the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB),
which is ready to defend the homeland and is committed to the Constitution.
"The FANB" is very aware and feels a great deal of indignation (...)
with the statements made by Donald Trump, pretending to be (its)
commander-in-chief (...), giving orders to the Venezuelan military from
Maduro stressed that the FANB is ready to defend the country’s
territorial integrity and to respond to any attempt to attack the peace,
independence and sovereignty of Venezuela.
"We are not afraid. We prepare ourselves with serenity and we believe
that with our preparation we will guarantee peace in our country. The
most important thing is to continue in peace and resolve
Venezuela's problems in peace, in democracy, through dialogue", he said.
In the interview with HispanTV, Maduro also condemned the transnational
media corporations' campaign against his government and the people of
"Every day there are great mobilizations of the people in all the cities
of the country. When the Venezuelan opposition calls its mobilizations
and marches, we always make mobilizations two, three, four, five times
bigger, more powerful and more combative than the opposition itself.
However, BBC, CNN, NBC, Fox and all the international media portrait
only one side of the events, making us invisible," he lamented.
On the delivery of the so-called humanitarian aid
which the U.S. wants to deliver through the Colombian border, Maduro
stressed that, first and foremost, it is a show aimed at camouflaging
the U.S. provocation and aggression against Venezuela.
Nevertheless, President Maduro reiterated his belief in dialogue and
diplomacy, despite the constant aggression by the Trump administration.
"Despite the aggression and immense differences that we have, that I
have, with the U.S. government, I believe in the working of words,
diplomacy and politics. I'm sure that if Donald Trump and I talk, if he
hears the Venezuela’s truth, things could take a different direction,"
Regarding the forthcoming arrival of the European Union-Uruguay
to Caracas, the Venezuelan President expressed that they will be welcome
"if they come with respect,” although he regretted that the EU has been
deceived by the Venezuelan right-wing.
"[The European Union’s] grave and big mistake is that it only listens to
one part... and believes all the right-wing’s lies,” Maduro said and
added that “Brussels repeats the entire script written by the right and
the Donald Trump administration."
