I think it would be best if the OAS sent in a military contingent as opposed to the USA. The USA going in feeds into the BDIC fantasy story which some might actually believe ... so why not have the OAS go in instead ? We could have a brigade sized QRF standing by if needed to oppose any strong rooskie opposition to the OAS.

I could be wrong but I believe that the next time that the OAS sends in a military contingent anywhere would actually be the first time it’s sent a military contingent anywhere.

In other words I wouldn’t count on them doing anything on their own (even with a US brigade sized force in the wings).

Styx weighs in on current doings in Venezuela


An interesting comment with ~+300 up doots . . .

I'm Peruvian, all Venezuelans are getting guaranteed jobs here even over Peruvians because they're willing to do double the workload for half the pay. There's a growing social resentment because of this, and we're starting to realize why Americans want a Wall with Mexico.

So how bad have things gotten in Venezuela?

People are now digging up the graves of dead people for their jewelry and prying out their gold teeth.

:shock:

I wonder if AOC and her little clique of Democratic Socialists can somehow be compelled to take an extended fact finding tour to Venezuela...not some sort of Potempkin tour but actually meeting the people on the streets in cities and villages.

Nicolas Maduro's death squads have executed 57 people in just one month in Venezuela, says UN human rights chief

    Michelle Bachelet made the comments to UN Human Rights Council in Geneva
    Report from July found a 'pattern of torture' including extrajudicial killings
    Declining conditions have led to more than four million Venezuelans fleeing

By ISABELLA NIKOLIC FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 03:48 EDT, 10 September 2019 | UPDATED: 08:45 EDT, 10 September 2019

Nicolas Maduro's Special Action police force has executed 57 people in just one month in Venezuela, according to the United Nations' chief human rights official.

Michelle Bachelet made the damning claims in a presentation to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva yesterday.

She said that non-governmental organisations report the Special Action police force carried out 57 suspected extrajudicial killings in July alone in Caracas.

Her presentation followed a scathing written report issued in early July which found a 'pattern of torture' under the government of President Nicolas Maduro that included arbitrary detention, extrajudicial killings, sexual violence and enforced disappearances.

Bachelet's presentation, which received pushback from powerful figures in Maduro's government, also noted that more than four million Venezuelans have fled the country due to declining conditions.

The country's minimum monthly wage is just $2 as a result of hyperinflation.

Bachelet noted that although she had made calls for officials to dismantle the Special Action police force, the unit has instead received ongoing support from the highest levels of government.

She carried on to raise concerns that groups that had collaborated with her in the earlier report have since come under criticism and threats by senior officials.

'Reprisals for having cooperated with the United Nations are unacceptable,' she said.

'I urge the authorities to take preventative measures.'

Bachelet is worried about a proposed law which would criminalise the activities of human rights organisations that receive money from abroad, which could further erode democracy in Venezuela.

While highlighting the advances the country has made, Bachelet said a member of her team was recently allowed to visit the Ramo Verde Military Center - a prison commonly used to hold what opposition leaders consider political prisoners.

The government also has released 83 people whose arrests human rights observers considered arbitrary and officials have agreed to consider another 27 cases.

Bachelet said the only way to overcome Venezuela's human rights crisis is for Maduro's government and the opposition led by National Assembly President Juan Guaido to return to negotiations overseen by Norway.

Socialist party boss Diosdado Cabello, considered Venezuela's second most powerful figure after Maduro, said Bachelet is fixated on efforts by Venezuela's government to carry on the socialist revolution launched by the late President Hugo Chavez.

Cabello said nobody paid attention to grave violations under previous right-wing administrations in Venezuela or other governments elsewhere, such as Chile, where Bachelet previously served as president.

'We're not going to lose any sleep over whatever Ms Bachelet says,' Cabello said.

'She's doesn't fool us.'



That sounds horrific.

But is it the responsibility of the United States to fix that----to use military force to impose regime change?

I think not.

18 years of regime change in Afghanistan have shown little progress...but at least there we had the excuse of an AQ attack on the US that resulted in the murder of 2,977 people on Sept. 11, 2001.

There is no casus belli for the US to intervene militarily in Venezuela.

With John Bolton gone from the Administration perhaps the chances of that happening is diminished.
