CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Tuesday he had ordered a “revision” of diplomatic relations with the United States and would announce new measures in the next few hours.
Maduro was responding to comments made earlier on Tuesday by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who gave his support to Venezuela’s opposition and called Maduro a “dictator with no legitimate claim to power.”
Now, early yesterday a group of national guard attempted to mount an insurrection against the government, it failed, but it has seemingly renewed protests against the government.
The failed Narco State of Venezuela, I doubt will collapse soon, the reason is that when a country has reached this point, the illicit activities and what remains of the oil revenue, Maduro is plundering to keep the army and police on side and the population that is still left in Venezuela, who knows whether they have the strength or numbers to overcome them.
The Generals are all paid off with oil, drug and other illicit money and are unlikely to bite the hand that feeds them.
I like what Pence had to say here, minus maybe the akward Hola in the beginning, dunno why Trump couldn't make such a statement.
And I have to say, it's pretty laughable Maduro will announce "New Measures", what in the world does that mean?
His country is completely broken, what does he have to use to enact a "measure" against anyone?
