An armed revolution is breaking out in Venezuela, where the new President Guido has launched an offensive against the dictator Maduro in an attempt to remove his illegal occupation of the Presidential palace. The Daily Caller reports:

Several firefights have broken out in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas with opposition leader Juan Guaido calling for a military uprising against President Nicolas Maduro.

Guaido’s call came Tuesday morning in a three-minute video declaring the uprising as the “final phase” of his plan to oust Maduro, according to CBS News. This comes Guaido has turned the garrison of La Carlota air base to his cause.

“The moment is now,” he said, referring to the moment as “Operation Liberty,” according to The Washington Post. Formerly detained activist Leopoldo Lopez also appeared in the video after being freed on Tuesday, as well as armed soldiers and armored vehicles.

Guaido-backed military forces and thousands of protesters, all calling for Maduro to resign, have begun marching through Caracas toward the Venezuelan Presidential Palace.

Live fire from the Maduro regime’s thugs has been reported, as well as armored cars running over unarmed protesters. The US government is closely monitoring the situation there, and a military intervention remains possible depending on how the coup turns out.

I think we want the citizens of Venezuela to do the job, and we should stay out of it as far as military intervention is concerned. Maybe offer medical aid with a carrier group.

I wouldn’t mind helping them. At least they fighting for their country instead of invading us and trying to suck us dry with the help of the Democrats.

OUT WITH MADURO!! Dictators bite and they’re all pretty much the same. Let’s hope Maduro flees on his own but if he does not, may he go out like many before him!! Mussolini, Stalin, Hussein, just to name of few who refused to go. Oh well, it’s not as though he was not warned! e

In any event this guy trying to get him out had better succeed. Once you start something like this there is no backing out…….

We have to keep communism out of the Americas. Kennedy did that with Cuba, when missiles were place in Cuba and he wasn’t having any of it.

Kennedy was one of the last of the Real Democratic Party a very quickly vanishing breed. Back in toes days the Democrats actually cared about this country. I still believe that is the real reason he had to die, the New Democratic/Leftist/liberal/Socialist Party was on the rise and they needed to get him and people like him out of the way so that they could start polluting the Party with Socialists.

Wew shoiuld send in “military advisors” just as Cuba and Russia have done and arm the dissidents to the teeth with RPG’s to knock out the armored vehicles and any Cuban or Russian planes. With enough good arms these dedicated people can will and will do so very rapidly !!!

People of America, look very closely at the things happening in Venezuela, this is a text book case of what happens when the Socialists take over. They promise you the world and in the end, just like every other Socialist government before it the people get nothing and the government officials get everything. If people like bernie or AOC or beto have their way we will be on the very same path as Venezuela. Right now in Venezuela $1.00 USD is equal to 5,190 Venezuelan Bolívares, which in and of it’s self sucks but it really doesn’t matter since there isn’t anything to buy anyway. Vote for the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists and get everything you ever wanted for Free and then sit back and watch the entire country fall apart and become Venezuela 2
