Red Cross denounces unsanctioned use of its emblems to smuggle US aid to Venezuela

The largest international aid organization has demanded that activists at the Venezuela-Colombia border not use the insignia of the Red Cross, which isn’t participating in what Caracas has dismissed as a US “propaganda show.”

The Red Cross learned that some “people not affiliated” with the agency are trying to disguise themselves as aid workers to smuggle cargo for Venezuela’s opposition across the closed frontiers.

“They might mean well but they risk jeopardizing our neutrality, impartiality & independence,” the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said.


Earlier, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza stressed that the UN and the International Red Cross are not participating in the “propaganda show” staged by the United States. “It is clearly an action with political objectives, it could never be described as a humanitarian action,” he said on Twitter, accusing the governments involved in the US plot of violating the principles of the UN charter.

The government of Nicolas Maduro has sealed off the borders with neighboring Colombia, Brazil and the Dutch island of Curacao, trying to prevent US shipments from entering the Latin American State. Caracas denounced the ‘aid’ as a highly-publicized attempt to foster division and chaos, and possibly to use it as a cover to smuggle arms to the country’s opposition.

    US-backed opposition caught on VIDEO throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border
    Published time: 24 Feb, 2019

    As Washington and Caracas blame each other for torching a truck carrying what the US called vital ‘humanitarian supplies’ from Colombia to Venezuela, a video has emerged, finally shedding some light on the incident.

    The truck caught fire and burned down during a failed attempt on Saturday by US-backed opposition activists to breach the closed Colombia-Venezuela border crossing at the Francisco de Paula Santander Bridge, near the Venezuelan city of Urena. The Venezuelan government refuses to let the American cargo in, calling these ‘humanitarian’ convoys a propaganda stunt and a precursor to a military invasion.


    Photos of the incident were immediately used by US officials to double down on their outrage and calls for regime change in Caracas. But footage that has surfaced on social media tells a strikingly different story, pinning the blame on ‘activists’ in the crowd.


    One clip appears to have caught the moment a man on the Colombian side of the border pelted a Molotov cocktail at the truck, while another video from the scene showed the opposition activists openly preparing the incendiary devices. Border security guards can be seen patiently holding their line at a distance, casting further doubts on claims that the truck was seized and torched after it had crossed into Venezuela.

    "US-backed opposition caught on VIDEO throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border"

    Little piece of critical thinking.

    Is it likely for "US-backed opposition" be "throwing Molotov cocktails at [US] aid truck on Venezuela border"? - Highly unlikely.
    Why would "US-backed opposition" help Maduro forces against "US-backed opposition"? - No, they would never do that.

    So, what kind of conclusion can we draw? - It is either false flag operation or something important is not being said.

    So, after reading the header like that should I spend time reading the opus? - My decision, I pass.

    I agree. You should pass reading because it doesn't serve your purpose nor your false narrative.

    "US-backed opposition caught on VIDEO throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border" is a fact proven on video. And unless you have a counter proof, I think it might be wiser if you also take the decision to pass commenting.

    Can you prove that false flag operation is 100% impossible?
    Can you prove that these people could not possibly be Maduro's provocateurs or some mafia.

    Not a back door for US troops: Brazil says it won’t help Venezuela invasion
    Published time: 25 Feb, 2019

    The Brazilian vice president has said there is no chance his country would allow the US military to use its territory to invade neighboring Venezuela. The vow comes after Washington said it’s keeping “all options” on the table.

    Asked in an interview if Brazil was considering letting US troops into its territory for a potential invasion of Venezuela, Vice President Hamilton Mourão flatly rejected such a possibility on Monday.

    "Brazil does not consider this at all," Mourão told to Brazil's GloboNews TV on the sidelines of the Lima Group meeting in Colombia. Mourão also explained that the government of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has repeatedly berated Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as a “dictator,” could not single-handedly greenlight the deployment of US forces.

    “You have to always remember that any presence of a foreign force in our country has to have authorization from the National Congress, the government cannot simply do this,” Mourão noted.

    The Brazilian VP doubled down on the issue on social media, tweeting that the deputies have “no intention” of backing such a militaristic move.

    He stressed that Brazil believes in non-military ways of resolving the crisis, which include applying international diplomatic and economic pressure but “no adventures.”

    Brazil, like the majority of countries in the region, has recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela. The two countries, once close allies, have fallen out sharply since the election of the right-wing Bolsonaro, who has been courting Washington and has even suggested hosting a US base on Brazilian territory.

    Ahead of the Monday’s meeting of the Lima Group, an alliance of 14, mostly Latin American, countries, the Brazilian Foreign Ministry urged states that have not recognized Guaido “to join in the liberation effort of Venezuela.”

    Tensions between Brazil and Venezuela flared up over the weekend as Venezuelan security forces blocked trucks with humanitarian aid from crossing into the country from the Brazilian city of Pacaraima. The botched aid delivery was marred by violence and drew stark condemnation from the Brazilian authorities, that labeled it “the acts of violence perpetrated by the illegitimate regime of dictator Nicolás Maduro.” Violence also erupted at Venezuela’s border with Colombia, where the US-backed aid convoys were likewise forced to turn back. Caracas sees the deliveries as a pretext for a potential military invasion and has vowed to not let the aid into the country.

    During a Periscope broadcast Juan Guaido, a key Venezuelan opposition figure and self-proclaimed interim president, has warned Caracas against arresting him or his wife promising that otherwise Maduro’s government will face repercussions.

    “[If Maduro’s government] tries to kidnap us […] it will be one of the last mistakes it makes”, he said.

    Guaido also called for the Venezuelan people to mobilise against Maduro’s government upon his return to the country.

    His warnings have been supported by Washington with US National Security Advisor John Bolton promising that Caracas will face “a strong and significant response from the US and the international community” if Guaido’s safe return to Venezuela is hindered.

    Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez commented on the prospects of Guaido’s arrest in an interview with the channel Russia-24 by saying that Venezuela adheres to the rule of law and therefore Guaido’s actions will be analysed by governmental institutions. She added that “appropriate measures” will be taken, based on the results of this analysis.

    Guaido left Venezuela for a Latin American tour on 22 February disobeying a travel ban imposed on him by the Venezuelan Supreme Court. According to Venezuelan Supreme Tribunal of Justice, Juan Carlos Valdez, Guaido may face up to 30 years in jail for breaching the travel ban.

    Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has repeatedly slammed Guaido as a “US puppet” and accused Washington of trying to stage a coup in Venezuela.

    Guaido proclaimed himself interim president of Venezuela calling for Maduro’s resignation. The US and around 50 other countries have recognised his claims. At the same time, Russia, China, Cuba, Bolivia, Iran, Turkey and a number of other states have refused to recognise him and called to support the legitimate government of constitutionally elected President Nicolas Maduro.

    Do you feel Maduro is a threat to your national security?

    I for one am blessed. Capitalism worked great for me. Made me rich. But I don’t mind taking some of my money to places like Cuba or Venezuela and live like a King. Heck, I don’t even have to worry about paying medical bills over there while receiving superior medical care especially in a place like Cuba. I’m curious about your thoughts. What do you think?

    As non-Cuban you will be paying for medical care in Cuba.
    Granted, it will be much cheaper for you than in US.
    However, do not fool yourself into thinking that average "not-paying" Cuban will receives anywhere near quality medical care that you would.
    Also, do not fool yourself into thinking that medical care in Cuba is free even for Cubans.

    Democracy is not perfect, but it is better than anything I know.
    However Venezuelans should decide for themselves what they want.
    We shall not bring anything, but we shall help.
