Honestly, at this point in time, it might be wise to convene the Organization of American States, and form a military intervention to at least get supplies safely across the border. The fact that Maduro's lapdogs are open firing into another country, and burning humanitarian aid is fucking beyond disgusting.

@MIR Hours before they had warned that a ship from Puerto Rico with aid would try to reach Puerto Cabello. (here) But if they're reporting what they're seeing Venezuelan navy ships apart from that if I remember well, Puerto cabello has the Venezuelan naval shipyard as a neighbor.

This is getting too ugly.
Sick to think there are still a few delusional dickheads in this forum supporting and sucking the dick this putrid cunt Maduro.

government goons (the Nicolas Maduro guerrilla death squad) Those are the same groups that are sent to the protests to shoot Protestants with real weapons. and under the immunity of the Security Forces

Literally, the biggest scum that exists made up of delinquents from dangers hoods and criminals from the prisons that they don't care about anyone's life even children when it comes to killing in exchange for a new bike. or immunity
4:29 p.m. NO ANSWER From the ship carrying humanitarian aid they have not been able to establish radio contact with the Venezuelan vessels that keep them blocked.

They're probably sleeping, it's midnight in Moscow after all.

I don't support Maduro but if you think for a second Trump or the American government gives a single fuck about the people of Venezuela's independence than your wrong. Maduro is a corrupt oligarch sure, but this is all been a very long process for the US and foreign interests to privatize Venezuela's oil so they can dominate them. If you know anything about Latin American and American interventionist history, it's always been about extracting natural resources from Latin American to enrich America. We've installed brutal dictators in Latin American over democratically elected socialist, don't think for a second we want what's best for the people.   Also this so called "humanitarian aid" Trump is sending is 20 million dollars. Which is about 1 day of humanitarian relief. While the oil sanctions which produce about 90% of the revenue for the Venezuelan state which is equivalent to billions of dollars for social aid a year for the people of Venezuela is what is actually starving them. The sanction is intended to starve the people so they get desperate revolt against Maduro.   Not saying Maduro is a good guy. But good or bad the US would be doing the same exact thing no matter who was in power.
What's the best we could hope for, then?
Hopefully when the people regain control of the government after Mudoro is ousted, they resist America's attempts at installing a puppet government but thats unlikely if the US gets involved militarily.
I went down a little tankie rabbit hole, and the similarity in rhetoric and sources to the right-wing conspiracy theorists they love to make fun of was kinda staggering. The meme of Venezuelans getting banned from /r/chapotraphouse makes a lot more sense when you understand their view of Venezuela is based entirely around what lets them be the most anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist, with nothing getting in their way.
The ship arriving from Puerto Rico with humanitarian aid reverses, and will spend the night in Bonaire until @jguaido do new instructions. Miguel Pizarro denounced that the ship was besieged. https://twitter.com/CATERINAV/status/1099434882046914560
some of the rhetoric I've heard from left leaning circles about venezuela is just downright fucking retarded why anyone would go out of their way to defend maduro is a mystery to me people's idiocy really is boundless
It takes a special kind if asshole to firebomb food and medicine shipments. It is reaching comic book villain levels of evil. What the fuck is going on?
Just somehow the situation getting worse, like, what really expects Maduro at this point to happen? Declare martial order and collapse the country until loads of people end dead or revolt?
