Venezuela’s military attaché to Washington has been labeled a traitor by Caracas after he refused an order to return home and announced his support for the US-backed, self-proclaimed interim president, Juan Guaido.

In a video shared on social media, Colonel José Luis Silva urged fellow members of the Venezuelan military to follow his lead by recognizing Guaido, the opposition leader backed by the United States government.
I'd keep your eye on Venezuela. It's a perfect set up for a 'Wag the Dog'-type means for Trump to get a bump in his dismal & sinking poll numbers. Invoke the Monroe Doctrine (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monroe_Doctrine) based on the Russian military presence, blockade their ports, send in the Marines to 'rescue' our diplomats. And then there is all their oil. I would be very surprised if war plans more or less along these lines had already been drawn up by the CIA & the Pentagon. And the bonus: regime change. Get rid of incompetent tyrant Maduro & install our own puppet. Our CIA has had plenty of experience in this area, going back to the Shah of Iran & the coup that toppled Mosaddegh.
