John Bolton Admits US-backed Coup in Venezuela Is About Oil, Not Democracy

Last edited Tue Feb 12, 2019, 12:56 PM - Edit history (1)

Smashing the claims of “protecting democracy” in Venezuela, the United States National Security Advisor John Bolton said in an interview that they are backing the illegal coup in the South American country because of oil.

“It will make a big difference to the United States economically if we could have American oil companies invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela,” Bolton told Fox News in an interview this week.

5. Imperialism is live and well

They can't fool all of us - I've been following this one from they put the army man in charge in Guyana. Then suddenly Exxon arrived to get the Venezuelan oil one way or the other.

Enough already.

6. Is that one of our goals? To go after foreign companies to steal their resources? Is that our

Mission? We have enough problems Korea, Afghanistan, SA, without creating wars that are not necessary the border, Venezuela. This is getting out of control.it goes against our grain to start wars that are removed from our country and beliefs just to grab resources.

8. Globalresearch.ca is a virulently anti-Semitic

conspiracist website that should never be linked to by decent, thinking people. Seriously, that shit is bad news.

i replaced them with a Russian propaganda source as major news media seemed to have missed the interview.

I think the quotes and the video speak for themselves.

11. Since the bulk of the international community has recognized Guaido

Do you want to stop calling it a "U.S.-backed coup?" Because it's not only tired, it's intellectually lazy.
