Oh this is worse...

So.... to recap.... Venezuela has been struggling since 2013...five years pass, a refugee crisis emerges and only after you declare yourself President, even with the military on your side, you say US military support could be a part of removing Maduro.

Nope.
Nope.
Nope.
Nope.

Nothing good has ever come out of US military interventions in oil rich countries.

The optics around the world don’t help. South Americans detest the US due to pretty much everything that happened during the Nixon, Reagan, and Bush I administrations, and Bolton is known to be a very stupid person.

So the idea of Bolton and the US considering deploying 5000 troops to the country bordering Venezuela, well... it creeps the fuck out of everyone outside the US.

At least here in Mexico, where public opinion is somewhat divided, US military intervention sounds fucking insane. It was in no one’s mind, not even among immigrants from Venezuela or Guiado supporters.

Specially since before his proclamation, Guiado visited Colombia and the US, two countries ruled by very conservative politicians. Despite being member of one of the socialist parties in Venezuela, this caught many off guard, specially those that consider themselves economically liberal. This might seem like a power grab by Guiado.
