Cuba says U.S. moving special forces, preparing Venezuelan intervention

HAVANA (Reuters) – Cuba said on Thursday the United States was moving special forces closer to Venezuela as part of a covert plan to intervene in the chaotic South American country using the pretext of a humanitarian crisis.

A “Declaration of the Revolutionary Government” alleged that recent events in Venezuela amounted to an attempted coup that had so far failed.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration has been trying to pressure Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to step down and hand over power to Juan Guaido, the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly.

Guaido invoked a constitutional provision to assume the presidency three weeks ago, arguing that Maduro’s re-election last year was a sham.

These events, the declaration said, had led the United States to impose drastic sanctions causing damage “1,000 times greater” than the aid it is trying to force on the country.

“Between February 6 and 10 military transport aircraft have flown to the Rafael Miranda Airport of Puerto Rico, the San Isidro Air Base, in the Dominican Republic and to other strategically located Caribbean islands, probably without knowledge of the governments of those nations,” the declaration said.

“These flights originated in American military installations from which units of Special Operations and Marine Corps operate, which are used for covert actions,” it said.

  1. This is deeply troubling. I worry about yet another invasion for oil as the attention of Congressional “leaders” focuses on the ridiculous smokescreen of Trump’s declaration of a national emergency over a border wall with Mexico. Yet the madness is not his alone. Fear of indigenous worldviews, and communal governance in particular, has ever festered among the landed gentry who migrated from Great Britain and Europe to what is now the U.S. Through conquest and enslavement, they have effectively imposed their beliefs that property and profit are the most important things in life. People and nature are only valuable if they can be exploited and commodified.

    • You are totatly right with your words, my earthling friend, Carol! The result of these, 99% of human population is suffering under the interests of 1%. Not only 99%, you know, the nature and animals too. The US governments and elits have been always leading this 1%. Then, almost all of the peoples of the world see US as a threat. Last week I have read an article, even the Japanese now see the US as the major threat. Here the news: “More in Japan see U.S. as ‘major threat,’ while cyberattacks and climate change top concerns, survey shows” https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/02/12/national/japan-see-u-s-major-threat-cyberattacks-climate-change-top-concerns-survey-shows/#.XGkIXrhx02x

      We are talking about Japan people, who are very kind, silent, calm and well-disciplined people. If they started to express their opinions about what US made them feel and think, it means that the things will not go better for elits and governments of US.
