Imperialism is plunging deeper into a desperate, increasingly dangerous phase in its attacks against Venezuela.
Businessman Donald Trump, who became president with a minority vote of the U.S. people –received a smaller share of the popular vote than his rival Hilary Clinton, in an election that saw a high abstention rate – is at a real crossroads, one of the many in the labyrinth in which his administration is buried.
Little is going well for the President. One of his most cherished dreams, negotiations on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) denuclearization, which saw him approach the laurels of glory, was snatched away. The “deal of the century” went up in smoke, among other reasons, due to the ill will and ineptitude of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Adviser John Bolton. Bolton’s latest statements on the subject were described as “nonsense” by the DPRK’s Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui.
These two politicians appear to be competing to see who can come up with the biggest lie, and especially who can say it first. They contradict each other; they get things wrong, in what was described by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, during a press conference at the Ministry as a sign of “haste and improvisation.”
On April 17, Bolton stated before the ignoble remnants of the mercenary 2506 Brigade (Bay of Pigs veterans), in Miami, “Together, we can finish what began on those beaches.” Such nonsense is truly laughable. On the sands of Playa Girón the arrogance and vain pride of the empire were buried. What began to fall on that beach was the power of the United States on the continent. Do they really want to finish what they started?
