Bolton: Venezuela “Clearly Not a Coup” Because “We Recognize Guaido as Legitimate”

Well that settles it then. When putschist are recognized by Washington as "legitimate" that means it's not a coup. Any other questions?

It’s clearly not a coup. We recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate interim president of Venezuela.”

“And just as it’s not a coup when the president of the United States gives an order to the Department of Defense, it’s not a coup for Juan Guaidó to try and take command of the Venezuelan military.”

What a relief it is to know there is no need to think about any of these things. It’s all very simple. If the US says it’s a coup it is — and if the US says it isn’t a coup it isn’t. There isn’t any need to think for yourself — the US cannot ever be wrong, because it is its very words and recognition that determine if someone is a putschist or not. Whoah, thank you for making the world so simple for us, John.

And why not, as Rome is the seat of Catholicism and thus its proclamation that a king is outside Catholicism would make it so, so Washington is the Imperial city. Of course it gets to excommunicate Presidents making coups against them not crimes but holy duty to the Empire.

Oh let them pontificate, they’re always looking for war .Their satanic regime and the regime of their master , Israel , and of Ba’al himself , are in constant need to spill the blood of innocents. They are so inanely stupid that they can’t see their empire of evil is collapsing around their feet. Their plan to depopulate the planet with wars , with GMO’s , with man made diseases like AIDS and Ebola , with geo-engineered skies raining poisons down constantly , and their poison laced vaccines are all failing…..mankind will survive, but they won’t !

Go ahead Johnny B and send in US troops. You might be surprised at the civilian resistance. Are you looking for body counts in the 250,000-300,000 range ala Syria and Yemen?

Probably not, because you can’t allow this coup to become a protracted war as financial markets will become extremely jittery. When the June 2019 Iran ops begin you’ll have more problems than you can control.

The globalist master plan to inflict a global deflation-cum-depression may be intentionally or otherwise in full bloom.

Stealing another country’s seed corn (oil) won’t be easy.

Someone should point out to Bolt-on that when the “interim president” gives an order to “his” military, and they fail to do as he orders, then it is a mutiny, or coup, against the “interim president’.

When some prick declares himself to be interim president and brings weapons on to the streets, it’s a coup, shambolic or not.

Sums up the situation perfectly!

I do think there is a Pythonesque aspect to the whole ugly business.

The US is making itself look ridiculous in the eyes of all critically-minded people in the world.

That wasn’t always the case with its many coups, but it is here.

Has something changed or is this just such an incompetent and bizarre team Trump has hired on?

Bolton’s words would suggest the latter.

Well, Bolton is an Anti-American, Israhell citizen.

Ever catch an Israhell crime cabal member telling the truth or shunning evil?
