Regional Leaders Denounce Trump's Military Threat to Venezuela

John Pilger commented that Trump’s threat of military aggression against Venezuela falls in line with U.S. history in the past century

Nicolás Maduro Guerra, the son of the Venezuelan President, is threatening to seize the White House with rifles if President Donald Trump sends the United States military to his nation.

But Saturday, the bloc was condemning Trump's saber-rattling.

President Nicolas Maduro and his government have faced strong criticism from several Latin American nations over the controversial Constituent Assembly, which has the power to rewrite the country's constitution.

In a move to support the right wing parties rival to the leftist ruling party in Venezuela, the USA has imposed crippling sanctions against Caracas and has threatened the country with military option.

Venezuela's Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza slammed the "warmongering" declarations of the US President Donald Trump as "threats to peace".

"If the unlikely event of defiling the homeland came to pass, the rifles would arrive in New York", Nicolás Maduro Guerra said to state media, as reported by CNN".

Rosalia Pulgar, a pensioner from Caracas, said that "we are prepared to resolve our own problems".

"All measures should be peaceful and respect the sovereignty of Venezuela", a statement from Colombia's foreign ministry said.

After four months of deadly protests against his government, Maduro says the assembly is Venezuela's only hope of obtaining peace by locking in the socialist policies of his mentor and predecessor, the late Hugo Chavez.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday announced that he would not rule out the possibility of a military intervention in Venezuela.

Pence's trip will also take him to Buenos Aires, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; and Panama City, Panama, where he is expected to deliver a number of speeches, meet with the country's leaders and tour the newly expanded Panama Canal.

"So, I dont think he has enough political clout to exert any kind of influence in Latin America".

In Colombia, Pence is also expected to highlight trade, business investment and other ties between the nations, including USA support for the country's efforts to implement its peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.
