After Venezuelan troops block aid, Maduro faces 'diplomatic siege'

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro faced growing regional pressure on Sunday after his troops repelled foreign aid convoys, with the United States threatening new sanctions and Brazil urging allies to join a “liberation effort”.

Violent clashes with security forces over the opposition’s U.S.-backed attempt on Saturday to bring aid into the economically devastated country left almost 300 wounded and at least three protesters dead near the Brazilian border.

Juan Guaido, recognised by most Western nations as Venezuela’s legitimate leader, urged foreign powers to consider “all options” in ousting Maduro, ahead of a meeting of the regional Lima Group of nations in Bogota on Monday that will be attended by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.

Pence is set to announce “concrete steps” and “clear actions” at the meeting to address the crisis, a senior U.S. administration official said on Sunday, declining to provide details. The United States last month imposed crippling sanctions on the OPEC nation’s oil industry, squeezing its top source of foreign revenue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is sheer ugly, in-your-face regime change, and thinking people around the world, understand this.

IF it were not that Venezuela has huge reserves of oil, particularly at the new find in the Orinoco Delta Huge oil reserves found in the Orinoco Belt in Venezuela, there probably not be such a hew and cry from those in the Bowels of Power in DC.

But hey, they have the oil, the US Government wants it, so ... get out your helmets and celebrate another (if successful) US-generated regime change mambo.
