Venezuela Claims Ship Bringing Food Seized by the US

Piracy if true

The US continues to escalate its anti-Venezuela measures this week, having announced Monday night that sanctions have grown to an economic embargo, and now that appears to include a naval blockade. 

Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez announced on Wednesday that the United States had seized a cargo ship bound for Venezuela in the Panama Canal. The ship was carrying soy cakes for the production of food.

US officials as yet have not commented, but it’s not clear under what pretext they consider themselves allowed to seize a ship carrying food. The Panama Canal is no longer US territory in the first place, and seizing a food ship bound for Venezuela after spending most of 2019 claiming Venezuelans are starving and in need of food aid seems particularly spiteful.

Vice President Rodriguez condemned the move as “serious aggression,” and accused the Trump Administration of trying to impede Venezuela’s right to food.

Venezuela’s Ambassador to the UN also raised the issue, saying the Security Council needs to prevent US violations. Since the US has veto power at the Security Council, that’s clearly not going to happen, though it will hopefully bring more attention to the matter.

A worldwide boycott of all American goods, not that they produce anything much of value, needs to be initiated posthaste. There is only one thing a bully understands and that’s equal force. There is always a feeling of helplessness in situations like these, but a boycott is an effective tool for the ordinary person to make a difference. I personally have not bought any American products in years !

Where would we find them anyway? Everything I see for sale is either made in China, Viet Nam or some other asian country….the US doesn’t manufacturer anything any longer….and it is the US causing the trade wars? Their desperation is showing!

USA, controlled by the Ratschilds, starved to death at least One Half Million Iraqi children with illegal sanctions, BEFORE the USA invaded, in a war crime and murdered perhaps a million more children.

When asked about the Iraqi children starving to death from the illegal and inhuman actions of the Rat’s minions in DC, the USA Secretary of State said starving those half a million Iraqi children to death was worth it if it made the government of Iraq, do what the Rats wanted them to do.

USA/Israhell, Rats minions both, are helping Saudi starve to death tens of thousands of Yemen children right now, and has been or years..

Now the evil pedophile Rat minions in Sodom and Gomorrah on the Potomac, wants to do the same thing to a million or two innocent children again.

All politicians in favor of sanctions which starve children to death should forcibly be kept from eating anything, their children should eat just as well as the ones their parents are starving to death around the world.
