U.S. Push to Oust Venezuela’s Maduro Marks First Shot in Plan to Reshape Latin America

The Trump administration’s attempt to force out the president of Venezuela marked the opening of a new strategy to exert greater U.S. influence over Latin America, according to administration officials.

In sight isn’t just Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro, but also Cuba, an antagonist that has dominated American attention in the region for more than 50 years, as well as recent inroads made by Russia, China and Iran.

While Mr. Maduro and his predecessor, Hugo Chávez, have long drawn Washington’s condemnation, the Trump administration is stocked with officials who have long believed Cuba to be the more serious national-security threat. They cite Cuba’s intelligence operations in the U.S., and its efforts to spread anti-American views in other Latin American countries.

The goal, the administration’s thinking goes, is to sever ties that bind Venezuela to Cuba and sink regimes in both countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent that those people surrounding President Trump, who see no problems "regime changing" both Cuba and Venezuela, have their heads collectively so far up another, very dark orifice, that they are seeing the world, not with a 21st century vision which has learned the hard lessons of history, but through a very myopic, antique dystopian, 20th century vision, which utterly refuses to learn the hard lessons from world history.

So what we have here, is not a case of "shrunken heads", which are terrifying, but shrunken brains, which are even more terrifying to me.

These "shrunken brains" as we can see very clearly, create the kind of blind jingoistic rage we hear emanating from their "The US does no harm, and has every right to rule the world." message.

This has been coupled with both extreme SMD (selective memory disorder), on the part of these people, and intense demonization of both Venezuela and Cuba.

But what is missing, in these plans, is any true grasp of the situation at hand.

Would such a series of actions, sort of eating up Central and South America, much like Pacman, and turning these country's leadership to the US government's liking, have possibly worked in the 20th century, say in 1919?!?

The answer is, an unqualified "perhaps"; but can this be made to work in the 21st century?!? I fear, absoflippinglutely NOT.

This is absolute, utter desperation on the cusp of madness, and may well result in Russia and China coming to the aid of both countries, and beyond, perhaps even militarily.

It may well cause all the governments of South and Central America to become a very unified force against the United States, and create robust, economic and defense ties with larger countries when it is to their benefit.

Mr. President, a word, please: those answers and actions which might have been brought into play a century ago, cannot work at this moment, in the
21st century. As our President and Commander in Chief, you need to understand that.

I am very politely suggesting that you change tack here, before what these people are plotting results in yet another unmitigated disaster in Central and South America; Think about what we can do as a nation to "engage rather than enrage."

You may be close to "bearing fruit" with North Korea; I know that only time will tell here,

But those people who supported you in your 2016 campaign, absolutely did not intend for your foreign policy to bring us nearer to the abyss of a world war.
