Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has accused forces in the United States, Colombia, and Spain of waging an international “psychological war campaign” against his country, Press TV reports.
Barack Obama is behind a psychological war campaign to justify a coup in Venezuela said Maduro (who is not known for emotional restraint in his speeches) as he presented the results of the CELAC meeting in Costa Rica and elaborated on one of the grandest conspiracy theories yet proposed by his government.
Speaking on national cadena, Maduro claimed that his government is facing a broad national and international campaign with the aim of justifying a possible coup d’état in Venezuela.
“I denounce a campaign in the field of psychological warfare, to justify a coup d’état, against Venezuela, supported by the imperial factors of power of the United States. It is not by chance that the international right has done what it has done in the last weeks,” claimed the president.
"President Obama," said Maduro, "your whole government is conspiring in order to overthrow the legitimate government of Venezuela. I appeal to you and to your consciousness. You well know that all the agencies of your government are involved [metidos] in a plan to fill Venezuela with violence, in order to justify a coup d’état and to promote, starting from an escalation of violence, an intervention in Venezuela. Do you know this?"
(Why wouldn't Obama know it his government has already imposed regime change in Ukraine, overthrown a government but failed to replace it with anything stable in Libya and utterly failed to depose a tyrant in Syria. And now the American congress are debating plans for regime change in Russia.)
Maduro said the combined effort follows recent “aggression” from the US and aims to generate fear and panic among the Venezuelan people, China’s official state news agency, Xinhua, reported on Wednesday.
"They want to promote rumors to make the people forget about the imperial attacks against our homeland and once again deepen the economic war by stimulating hoarding, shortages and smuggling of basic products," he said.
Earlier this week, reports said former Spanish leader Felipe Gonzalez, a lawyer by training, would represent a number of imprisoned members of the Venezuelan opposition.
This comes soon after US President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on Venezuelan officials for alleged human rights violations.
The American Political System Is "Not A Democracy Or Constitutional Republic" - Thiel
The state of democracy in the USA has become a hot topic of conversation in American business circles in recent years. While President Barack Hussein Obama, not so much a man as an ego on long skinny legs, has increasingly been inclined to rule by executive order in the manner of a despot or tyrant, even Obama's fiercest critics have to admit the American electoral system seems increasingly capable of delivering only political paralysis ...
