This is completely off-subject, again, the more suitable name for this blog. We are in R&R today, our only walking from here to the restaurant and back. Later we will walk to the pool. And back.
I was watching CNN world news today, talking about the Venezuelan economy and all the trouble it endures. Inflation is rampant, there are food shortages, and trouble is brewing in the streets. Though CNN did not say so, it is a failure of any alternative to the “capitalism,” or more properly corporate global imperialism.
No one will believe me anyway, another suggested name for this blog, but none of that is true. Venezuela is under attack by all of the forces of the US military-industrial complex. The squeeze is on, food is withheld by those who control the food supply, and money does not flow freely. Military forces are on the border, US agents are busily buying off the military to stage another coup. The leaders much watch their backs, and in so doing are branded tyrants. What a beautiful scam! The idea is to make the people give up – then the shelves again have food and currency becomes dependable.
How do I know this? It’s documented – not Venezuela, but rather Chile when Allende took power by means of the ballot. It did not take but a few weeks before the US was fomenting military coup within the ranks, food shortages started, and eventually the ax – Allende murdered, and the crypto-NAZI Pinochet came to power with US blessing. Following that were disappearances, torture, open murder, secret police, and even an assassination on the streets of Washington, DC. All with approval of the overlord.
The leaders and aristocrats and military of the US do not weep for poverty or torture or human rights. These concerns are mere window dressing. The US fears but one thing: That a country will break free of control, go its own way, and succeed. People wonder why little Cuba is under embargo 54 years after Battista was overthrown. I just answered that question. No one will believe it.
