If you have been getting your news about Venezuela from mainstream media, you have been led astray. The media’s coverage of Venezuela is hugely biased, desperate, profane, deceptive, unsophisticated, preposterous and lacking both truth and context. When you read mainstream articles about Venezuela, you are limited to the ideas of Donald Trump, John Bolton, James Mattis, Tom Pompeo, Nikki Haley and think tanks which cut their teeth on trying to destroy Cuba in the 1980’s and now are trying to apply what they learned to Venezuela.
In stark contrast, Nino Pagliccia has written a very thoughtful article about Venezuela’s current problems as well as recent successes, possible scenarios in the event of a US-sponsored military assault, and the importance of making sure the US obeys international law governing intervention in sovereign states. Mr. Pagliccia presents all of the issues in context and offers some of the best analysis I have seen on Venezuela. Click on Nino’s article below.
