Venezuela Begins Deployment of 500,000 Troops; Colombia Sending Troops to its Border too
17 Comments

Venezuela has begun the deployment of its 500,000 man army throughout the country, with emphasis on its border with Colombia.

In response, Colombia is now deploying troops to its border with Venezuela . . .

Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino declares his forces are prepared for an invasion: “We are seeing the same formula they applied to Libya... They will try to penetrate across the border... So we are waiting for them here.”

Venezuelan soldiers on TV are telling the United States "You want war, we will give you war."

In an interview with Russian Television station Ria Novasti,  Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro claims President Donald Trump has given an order to kill him.

-First, my destiny is in the hands of the Lord, I am a Christian, I believe in the defense of the Lord ... The people of Venezuela protect me all the time, we have a good intelligence service. But without a doubt, Donald Trump gave the order to kill me, told the Colombian government, the Colombian mafia, to kill me. If something happens to me once, Donald Trump and Colombian President Ivan Duque will be responsible. Meanwhile, they protect me, we have a good system of protection, and, moreover, we have more substantial protection - this is protection from God, who will give me a long life.

In the meantime, Video from Colombia shows that country is now deploying its army to the border with Venezuela:

When countries start deploying troops on this scale, the outlook for future conflict is severe.  

ARMY DEFECTORS

Defectors from Venezuela's army who are now loyal to self-declared president Juan Guaidó have called on the Trump administration to arm them in what they refer to as their quest for "freedom," and are strongly opposed to the United States conducting a broad military intervention.

Two former soldiers, Carlos Guillen Martinez and Josue Hidalgo Azuaje, who live outside the country, say they are in contact with hundreds of willing defectors who want US military assistance in their revolt against the Maduro regime. 

"As Venezuelan soldiers, we are making a request to the US to support us, in logistical terms, with communication, with weapons, so we can realize Venezuelan freedom," Guillen Martinez told CNN

Hidalgo Azuaje said: "We're not saying that we need only US support, but also Brazil, Colombia, Peru, all brother countries, that are against this dictatorship."

The appeal came as US national security advisor John Bolton on Sunday warned the Maduro government that violence against Venezuela's political opposition—or against its leader and self-declared president Juan Guaidó—would be met with stern reprisals.

Bolton also appealed to the Venezuelan military to assist in the smooth transition of power from Maduro to Guaidó, whom the US has recognized as the legitimate head of state.

American officials have repeatedly warned that no options are off the table, in terms of US intervention. -CNN

    So now Twitter has declared itself a USA government tool for regime change.
    It has banned 2,000 accounts of Venezuelans that support Maduro.
    Start the bombing - the USA needs another war before the 2020 election.

    Hello fellow subscriber/supporters of the Hal Turner show,

    I believe it is time to step up support for him. As a subscriber it’s easy to read Hal’s post stating the financial needs of the show, and thinking “I already donate by my weekly subscription, so let someone else donate now.” I know because I think that. But here’s the deal, we have reached the point of either keeping the show/website or letting it shutdown. It’s as simple as at. So I’m going to post this in the comments of every article he has posted on the site and ask all the already paying members to dig deep and pull out something to send. I know 4, 5 even 10 or 20 dollars is a lot of money for some, which it is, but we have to do something. As members here, we are all pretty much of a similar mindset. We know what’s coming and an overwhelming majority has begun some type of preparations. Including some cash, coins precious metals etc. we save that stuff for essentials like shelter, food, water, INFORMATION etc. I am going to get in my safe, get out an ounce of silver, cash it in to send the money to Hal. I’m asking all the ALREADY PAYING MEMBERS, to do the same. This is it folks, either we pay the bills to run the site or we don’t. Hal, I am sending you some money today. I will email you with the total amount I get after cashing in some silver and have physically dropped payment into the mailbox. Thank you fellow members for joining me in this!

    In the words of Noem Chomsky .....The military has always subsidised Corporations. This is just more of the same ...more corporate welfare....more bailout....more greed and more facism. It's the oil and other resources, nothing more....not for us, but for them.

    The best way to ensure a country rejects socialism is to let them live with it long enough where they all realize in unison it does not work. Invading will only unify the country against any invader (of course).

      Capitalism never works - the rich just get greedier and let the poor starve. Communism never works - the ruling elite just get greedier and let the poor starve.
      A baby or a pensioner has no function in a capitalist society.
      An ambitious worker has no place in a communist society.

    New website security #1 awesome news. New style and layout not so much. Auto thumbnail scrolling does not respond accurately to touch (on touchscreens), auto scrolling 90% of time out of control, I usually can't choose story I want to read, it can take a dozen attempts to choose and I have also more than once abandoned trying. Your previous layout was quick, concise and was not the reason it didn't attract more viewers (if u thought that), as evidenced now, I imagine people are just cheap (or poor, there is a difference).

    Oh I hope your layout will go back to the classic style. Until then I don't sympathize with the lack of donations - this site is now troubled.

    The web designer should reset it for free. Great security (I assume), bad layout/style.

    Prefer I lie?

      Perhaps long running sanctions might be a factor. Think on that, American, think of children starving, people not having medicines, Iran not able to import food so running underground aquifers dry trying to grow food, not able to fix their ancient domestic aircraft.

        Hitlers Einsatzgruppen trialed many ways of killing Jews.
        The biggest problem was the effects on the soldiers of seeing the killing. The gassing solution was best - Jews were locked in a room and the guards did not see the deaths.

      The Bank of England refuses to return Venezuelian gold. Russia said to be taking the gold from Venezuela to Moscow now. Russia keeps international law and agreements, Putin is very strong on this. Russia has since him, gained credibility.non USA Countries recognise this.russia and China have put a lot into Venezuela, they won’t lose that easily.
      I posted here a few weeks ago that Bolton and mattis were giving speeches about their wars planned in Venezuela Cuba and Nicaragua.

    Venezuela has it problem and a lot of them were caused by US sanctions. What the US had done to Maduro is if England Turkey said the US elected were not fair and we anoint The former opposition speaker of the house president.. ask yourself why would any county import the Progressive policy with Homosexuality abortion on demand the forest of medical marijuana anti Christianity pro satanic worship,Corrupt politicians. Why would they want the US to contaminate there values .

    Wait now. We might have a discrepancy here. We have Maduro who has been called a Communist dictator proclaiming that he is a Christian and he trusts in “The Lord.” We have Russia supporting him and Russia is a Communist country last I checked. Not that the United States isn’t a Communist country nowadays too. But with all of this we have the United States trying to unseat a Communist who calls himself a Christian. Or is it the other way around? So confusing.

      Russian is not a communist country. Ussr was a Marxist country, there is recorded interaction between Marx and his rabbi, that no individual ownership, the state owns all. Rabbi said, Good, makes it easy for us to take all. This was the religion. 64 million died in the Jewish Bolshevik gulags, mostly ethnic Russians. Look at the hatred in Kiev and west Ukraine. Russia is Christian, it is going back to its own ways in its freedom, the 1000 year ways. Churches are being rebuilt.
      You might consider that 62%of congress are on Aipac payroll average being 23,000 $ per year. And in some states must swear loyalty to Israel to hold a government job. Think about the facts before fantasies.

      The last time you checked must have been back in the 1980's, okay? You need to do some reading before you comment, please. Russia is a Christian, democratic country that has an oligarchy that directs things their way, just like the U.S.A. Don't believe something just because someone on t.v. said something.

      Russia has Christians. About 1000 years ago the Catholic Church moved from Rome to Constantinople just as hordes of barbaric migrant caravans were overwhelming the Rome Vatican. The barbarians took up residence in the Vatican and declared themselves to be the new mob boss by right because they held the Vatican. Then hundreds of years after that, the true Catholic Church in Constantinople moved to Russia. The true Pope who is in Russia is called Krill.

    The two supposed defected soldiers from Venezuela were part of a staged photo op / psyop. It's just more US war propaganda. The Florida Maquis channel on Youtube exposed it.

        Granting foreign contractors immunity from Iraqi law
        Two days before he left Iraq, Bremer signed "Order 17", which gave everyone associated with the CPA and the American government immunity from Iraqi law.[70] One of his former top aides is quoted as saying that Bremer "wanted to make sure our military, civilians and contractors were protected from Iraqi law."[71] This stipulation was later incorporated into Iraqi law.[72]

      I don't think he has any choice, Frank. Not to give him too much credit but look at the Obomber. He started three wars in Libya, Syria, and Yemen, killing twice the number of people that Bush's invasion of Iraq caused (500,000).
