                      <p>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 <span id="more-9150"></span>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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 region.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.”</p>
                      <p>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 surrender.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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
                        Venezuela.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
                      <p>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 humanity.</p>
                      <p>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.</p>
