Trying to FORCE weapons....er "aid" into Venezuela........who DON'T NEED US 'AID', nor do they WANT it. Friends of Venezuela have ALREADY sent over 900 tons, with more arriving every day.
Sorry Donald Trump, your WEAPONS will not get through !

Higher inflation and poverty in Venezuela was caused by the western government sanctions led by their master - USA.

Lift the sanctions first and maybe they don't need humanitarian aid.
The United Nations Human Rights Council (OHCHR ) has adopted a resolution proposed by the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries (NAM) condemning economic sanctions against Venezuela by the United States, Canada, the European Union and their allies.
1. The document, put forward at the OHCHR meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, on Friday, urged "states to refrain from imposing unilateral coercive measures (and) condemn(s) the continued unilateral application and enforcement by certain powers of such measures as tools of political or economic pressure," reminding all states that "such measures prevent the full realization of economic and social development of nations."
2. The resolution acknowledges Venezuela's position: economic sanctions "disproportionately" affect "the poor and most vulnerable classes," threatening the realization of human rights.
3. Rather than the application of unilateral coercive measures, which are against international law, the resolution urges states "to resolve their differences through dialogue and peaceful relations."
4. Last week, the United States imposed a new round of sanctions against Venezuela, this time against the new cryptocurrency launched by the Bolivarian Republic, known as the Petro. The sanctions target all transactions "by a U.S. person or within the U.S. with any digital currency" issued by the Venezuelan government.
5. The Petro was adopted by Nicolas Maduro's government to bypass the financial blockade the United States and its allies has imposed on Venezuela, limiting its capacity to import goods.
6. Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza shared the resolution and the vote via Twitter. Western nations, including Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom and Spain were among those who rejected the decision.
7. The Human Rights Council, meanwhile, said the measures "threaten the sovereignty of states... with a view to preventing these countries from exercising their right to decide, of their own free will, their own political, economic and social systems."

Yeah you are right, I rather starve myself to death than taking food from someone who has been bullying me for years. I have dignity. So I say stay strong Venezuela, you are not beggars, any aids should not come from US.

Looks like they are ready for a war of yesteryear. It's so antiquated. Hope it all works out well for them down there. Dictatorship or elected president, the entire world so corrupted and hijacked by a great evil that democracy is eroding worldwide and may disappear out of not working out to make sense like it did in the old days.

It's interesting to know it is Cuba that protecting maduro and the people around him is actually Cuban not Venezuelan . It's eye opener.

I wonder why Maduro won't allow soldiers with weapons around him? 🤔😂
Jeff Zad
Poor Guido he has special food in those trucks for dinner.
Jake Tapper
Juan Guido hasn't ruled out military intervention. Meaning a invasion of a foreign army into the Sovereign Nation of Venezuela.

Juan Guido called not allowing medicine and food to come into Venezuela as an act of genocide.
Yet , she will claim sanctions that are put on by United States keeping food and medicine from coming into Venezuela an act of Mercy.

France 24, is there any more journalistic integrity you have not already sold off.

Inside Venezuela’s Showdown: Why U.S. Venezuela: Maduro retains military 1 day ago   07:28

President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela has sent troops to the Colombian border to block U.S. humanitarian aid from entering his country. The opposition promises to get the aid through, but success hinges on whether the military will defy his orders. We went to the town of Cúcuta, where the impasse is building to a confrontation.
