Venezuela Prepares for War

Sep 28, 2017

Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro told his military commanders to prepare for war with the United States. Last week, the Trump administration barred “Venezuelan officials from entering the nation.” The president also said that he would do everything he could to help the Venezuelan people to get their country back. Maduro said, ”We have been shamelessly threatened by the most criminal empire that ever existed and we have the obligation to prepare ourselves to guarantee peace.” He continued, "We need to have rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the defend every inch of the territory if needs be.” Venezuela’s people are starving because the government controls everything. Farmers cannot make a sufficient profit to be able to stay in business and make money. So they do not produce. Critics of Maduro’s government have begun to talk about a possible coup. Venezuela has experienced three attempted coups since 1992.
