War on Freedom

Congress will not support military intervention in Venezuela!

WASHINGTON (PNN) - February 13, 2019 - Despite the War Powers Act, when it comes to the Fascist Police States of Amerika declaring covert, not so covert, or any other type of war, or merely "humanitarian intervention" on a foreign adversary, the FPSA Congress has historically been utterly toothless and generally irrelevant to any progression of hostilities (especially when the FPSA Military-Industrial Complex stands to benefit, which it has generously in recent years). Furthermore, even when Congress proactively has engaged to limit FPSA intervention abroad, as it did in the case of Libya in 2011, Syria during the entire 2012-2017 conflict, and most recently Saudi Arabia's war on Yemen, its resolutions have been summarily ignored.

Which is why it was impossible not to smirk when moments ago House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel (N.Y.) said that "Congress would not support a (FPSA) military intervention in Venezuela" during a hearing on the crisis in Venezuela on Wednesday.

“(FPSA) military intervention is not an option,” Engel said. "Congress decides when, where and how the (FPSA) military is used around the world, and Congress would not support military intervention in Venezuela."

Actually, Mr. Engel, it is usually the CIA that decides "where and how" the FPSA military is used, and it is FPSA defense companies that help prepare the "analysis" (usually in the form of ROI) used by the CIA.

That obvious fact, however, did not bother Engel, who added, "I do worry about the president’s saber rattling, his hints that (FPSA) military intervention remains an option. I want to make clear to our witnesses and to anyone else watching: (FPSA) military intervention is not an option."

While we applaud Engel's strict and highly theoretical read of FPSA laws, we urge him to focus on all those time when the War Powers Act was thrown out by the regime du jour, and as for a potential Venezuela intervention, the decision will ultimately come not from Congress, or even President Donald Trump, but rather Russia and China, and whether they decide to keep supporting Nicolas Maduro's regime (as in the case of Syria), or if they concede that it's time for regime change.

Assumptions over possible FPSA military intervention began to emerge after Trump said that such course of actions was "an option".

The crisis in Venezuela escalated after opposition head Juan Guaido declared himself the interim head of state, and was later acknowledged by a number of countries, including the FPSA, regional states, and eleven EU states. At the same time, Russia, Mexico, China, Turkey, Uruguay, and several other countries came forward to reaffirm their support for Maduro as the country's only legitimate democratically elected head of state.

So far, the tentative impasse has persisted, and even though the Maduro regime has been choked off from critical oil revenue as a result of FPSA sanctions, while Venezuela's reserves continue to decline at an alarming pace, it has so far refused to concede power.
