“USAID support for destabilization is no secret to the targeted governments”(Dan Beeton – ‘ USAID Subversion in Latin America Not Limited to Cuba’ 04.04.2014).
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) needs to revaluate the Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) and their role in interference across the globe. The USAID which is directed by the Secretary of State and gives the policy guidance to the organization. The USAID is supposed to be about “development” and “American Generosity” since 1961. The U.S. Organization in-charge of all foreign civilian aid. That sounds all well, right?
However, the OTI Office is what is questionable. As that is not offering humanitarian assistance, aid or programs of development. No, that is an office and agency for “transition” and change of power. Where the USAID are not coming to aid or develop but to change the leadership of a given country. Where the US incites and even participate in coup d’etat’s to get their wanted leader or head of state.
The USAID have been meddling in Latin America, where the OTI offices has interfered in several countries. WikiLeaks leaked a “internal memo” in 2013 detailing the plan to undermine the Chavez regime in Venezuela. This has also been done in Bolivia and Ecuador. The USAID used the agency as a tool to get their puppets in the respective countries.
The USAID should be looked as an honest actor, but that ship has sailed. They are a tool in the machinery of the State Department and the U.S. interests across the globe. The OTI was created in 1994 and worked to do this things all these years.
“When the Bolivian President Evo Morales expelled and shutdown USAID in his country last year for alleged attempts to undermine his leftist government, he wasn’t being paranoid after all. As a recent expose by the Associated Press shows USAID’s so-called “democracy promotion programmes” are designed to foment dissent against governments unfriendly to Washington. “In a number of countries, including Venezuela and Bolivia, USAID is acting more as an agency involved in covert action, like the CIA, than as an aid or development agency,” asserted Mark Weisbrot, an economist with a Washington-based think tank, the Centre for Economic and Policy Research” (Linda S. Heard – ‘Beware of aid agencies bearing gifts’ 21.04.2014, Gulf News).
If the USAID wants to be pawn and a useful tool for the State Department and the Pentagon. Than they can use the OTI programme. However, then they are not a directly NGO or a Aid Organization. No, it is then a part of the state machinery to other objectives. Not to fix or develop the nations it is in. Neither is to bring people out of poverty. No, then its about getting American interests and doing the bidding of the CIA. That’s another ball-game than doing aid or humanitarian assistance. To change leaders and incite uprisings for political change. That is not the work of a humanitarian organization.
Unless, USAID wants to be an imperial relic and a warning signs across the world. That if the USAID comes knocking on your doors. They are not coming with bread and water to the ones seeking refugee away from home after living in conflict zones. The OTI is changing the leadership and using various of means to inspire it to happen. To make ensure the Americans have their leaders and not the ones who works against the U.S. interests. This is why the OTI exists and certainly final objective.
If the USAID wants to look like and smell like a humanitarian organization. They better act like one and not be covert operation for the CIA. Because, the OTI is masking that and using the “legitimacy” of USAID to enforce the missions of CIA in any given territory, which is imperialism at its best. Peace.
Today on the 3rd March 2021 National Unity Platform (NUP) Presidential Candidate and leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine had a call with Venezuelan Opposition Candidate Juan Guaidó. Bobi Wine said they discussed “the way forward for both countries” and “defence of democratic principals”. This was a bad move for Kyagulanyi. He shouldn’t even have picked up this.
It made so much more sense when he congratulated Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF) leader on his 40th Birthday, Julius Malema the other day. They are in the same league and has similarities. They have common objective and spirits. That is something that is easily to salute and true brotherhood, but calling Guaidó is a waste of time.
Guaidó is a man who enjoys support of Pentagon and the United States Government. He wanted to be used a puppet President in Venezuela. This after President Trump was able to get his will in Bolivia the year before. The Trump Administration through Pompeo and other allies boosted Guaidó. Guaidó even hired mercenaries in 2020 and tried to overthrow President Manduro.
This is why Bobi Wine shouldn’t have picked up the call. Then describing it like this and calling him the “President” too. A man who is willing to be puppet and a the living embodiment of Western Imperialism. A man who is willing to be used as a tool of Pentagon and the U.S. State Department to undermine an elected government in Venezuela. That is the tragedy here.
Bobi Wine and the NUP should have researched this. Because, is this isn’t it and he shouldn’t be associated with leaders like this. They are not revolutionary or freedom fighters. Guaidó isn’t removing dictators, but wanting to be an installed Pinochet or Mobutu. His democratic principals cannot be deeply rooted, as his willing to hire guns and try to topple the government. This done with coordination of the US. Guaidó was even present at the State of the Union in Washington D.C. January 2020 and his attempt was in March 2020. Therefore, the whole ordeal was arranged, but didn’t succeed.
That is why Bobi Wine should know better and should have had his ears to the ground. Guaidó isn’t a renegade or a man fighting for freedom. The Venezuelan counterpart would trade away resources for his elite to eat in luxurious restaurants and have mansions in Miami. He would licence mineral industry and oil industry to American companies, instead of having the profits serving the general public and the state. That is the sort of man Guaidó is and why he was fitting in the game-plan of Washington.
We know that Guaidó is the President of Narnia and until he comes out the closet we shouldn’t take him seriously on his return to the real world. That is why the likes Bobi Wine shouldn’t address him or even take him sincere. He should have known better, but clearly he thought this would give him political capital.
Well, someone got to tell him and explain him the history. Even read some articles on Greyzone or Orinoco Tribune to get a gist of Guaidó is and his history. That would have been wise, but he can bring it back by acting smart, and learn from this mistake. Time will tell, if he does that, but this wasn’t it.
Bobi Wine, please don’t do this sort of thing again. Do research and check the history of the gentlemen you associate with. You are better than this. Peace.
The successful coup of November 2019 have now been restored. The Operation Condor of Bolivia has now been answered. The coup makers and the ones supporting it has lost. The party which was dethroned and taken out of power by force. Has now returned close to a year after winning the election yesterday.
The party of the ousted President Evo Morales, MAS-IPSP, the Movement for Socialism has returned. This must be a big blow for the ones supporting the coup and market liberalism they wanted to bring to the Republic.
The ones wanting favourable deals for the lithium mines for the batteries to electric cars. This is why people are mocking Elon Musk on social media today. As his generous deals with the mining industry. This is why the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) together with other partners collaborated and made it happen last year.
Now, its proven that it was a short term win and the ones ruling wasn’t popular, but an imposed regime. They toppled a popular government, which is initially returning. Now, the former Finance Minister of Morales, Luis Arce has won it.
That shows that you cannot change the reality on the ground. This wasn’t a popular uprising or the will of the people to bring down Morales. No, it was a imperialistic move to overturn the will of the people. So, that the imperialist could earn fortunes on the mineral wealth of Bolivia.
The regime of Jeanine Añez, who got the police and army behind her. However, she apparently never got the public behind her. As she was with right-wing and fascist. These have now lost. As this regime should answer for the 37 people it killed.
What can happen now is that the imposed government from the U.S. can leave Bolivia. They who made the MAS-IPSP and their allies suffer. The ones who sent Morales into exile. That is the sort of acts Anez did and she has to answer too.
MAS-IPSP resigned on the spot and left their positions as the coup happened. Today is the day that the Republic has returned to the public. Their will is respected and not supported by military. It is a government by the people and for the people. Therefore, the future is brighter for Bolivia.
The ones supporting imperialism lost, the ones that only see the vision of Washington D.C., but Bolivia isn’t mirrored by the White House, but it’s mirrored by the citizens of Bolivia. Peace.
The opposition leader and Washington D.C. ally Juan Guiado together with friends hired mercenaries this month to overthrow the government of Venezuela. We already knows that the United States supports Guiado and even let him attend the State of the Nation of 2020. Therefore, there is no secret of the relationship between the Trump Administration and Guiado.
However, the man has hired mercenaries together with Overall Project Supervisor Sergio Vergara, Chief Strategist Juan Jose Rendon and would also have a On Site Commander. Therefore, there was a team around Guiado. This was an agreement and contract between them and the Silvercorp CEO Jordan Goudreau. This was an agreement signed on the 16th October 2019. So, this been in the works and now they determined to strike.
All of this is happening while the United States already put charges on Nicholas Maduro and his associates. The US has already designated this and pushed for it in March 2020. So, the chips was already down. The cards was already in play. Not like the Trump Administration has the skills nor the ability to diplomatically sway the opinion.
They hoped in Washington D.C. that they could pull of another Bolivian enterprise and get rid of a socialist President in Latin America. Last time it was Evo Morales in Bolivia and now they wanted a few months later take down Manduro in Venezuela.
It’s not like the United States hasn’t been participating in changing regimes across the globe. That is what they do, when they have regimes whose not favouring the needs and the political ambitions of the Secretary of State. Right now its Michael Pompeo, who wants the US interests in Venezuela coming first and therefore, they are ensuring the Caracas regime getting sanctions and whatnot.
That Guiado has powerful friends is known. He was able to hire mercenaries and tried to do his business. Because, he knows he cannot get power through the polls nor through popular uprising. He doesn’t have the character nor the message to sell in Venezuela. This is why he had to get foreign support and hire US mercenaries to get power.
Silvercorp is a Florida based company run by Goudreau, whose a former US soldier and highly decorated one. A company made to solve “irregular problems”. In this regard that was the irregular problem of not having power in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
The Silvercorp has sort of initiated the remembrance of the “Wonga Coup” in Equatorial Guinea. Where British mercenaries together with Simon Mann planed to topple President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. However, that failed and he was charged with 34 years in jail for doing so. Now Silvercorp and its mercenaries can await something similar in Venezuela. Since they acted and did something very similar to Mann in 2004.
For me in 2020, Goudreau are doing the same as Mann did. He went in for fortunes and failed. Now, the cat is out of the bag. This is how you try to impose a brother on a Republic and not making it. The 60ish mercenaries who went to Venezuela was signalled and therefore intercepted before they could do the contracted and obligated mission to fulfil Operation Gideon.
If Guiado thought this was a good idea? To put it mildly, it was a foolish enterprise and only shows that his illegitimate himself. There is nothing sincere about his rise to prominence and neither is his backers. They cannot even use the means of elections, but instead has to install a puppet. That is the sort of efforts the US decides to do. They hoped for a Bolivia, but instead got into a Wonga Coup. Now the mercenaries are detained and they will be punished.
This is just a lesson in how not to make regime change. It is neither popular nor have the capacity to topple the regime in Caracas. The only thing this is achieving is to solidify Maduro and his allies. They are getting the boost it needs, as foreign forces and backers wants to bring it down. This is free political capital and the US pays for it. Peace.
The actions made today by the United States Department of Justice to indict President Nicolás Maduro Moro of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is a clear sign to the world. Also, that the US DOJ also issued the same sort of cases against 14 more high ranking officials of the Republic.
It is not so many months ago since the coup d’etat against the Bolivian President Evo Morales and his socialist government. This is again an assault on an independent republic in Latin America by the US government. They are really aiming harder. There is also not many months since the opposition leader and far-right Washington crony Juan Guaido participated and was a visitor at the State of the Nation in January 2020. Therefore, the actions now is showing flex towards the regime in Caracas.
Surely, the US government thinks they can get away with this and criminalizing the central government of Venezuela. They are putting big claims of drug-trafficking and other claims of illegal activity. However, the same US government propped up Guaido and has paid several of mercenaries to deal with things in the past too. Not like the US government is independent and a partial partner in the affairs here.
They want to have another far-right puppet in Latin America. Just like the enriching looting government in Bolivia now. Whose now opening up for US based companies to extract and get passes to export resources cheaply to the United States. Surely, they want the same thing done in Venezuela. Where they can get the oil reserves instead of seeing it sold to China or Russia like today. It is easy to see the game they play, because the cards are all on the table.
The Manduro isn’t saints, but the direct interference is directly disrespectful and trying to force another coup d’etat. I wonder how the United States citizens would enjoy if there was foreign forces choosing their leaders and making their representatives to puppet of Kremlin or elsewhere.
The US government wants to make Maduro into a new Morales. Put him into exile and so fourth. In our days and times. The US government isn’t even concealing their efforts, it is an open-air bazaar of actions and they using all means now.
It is not like the US has jurisdiction or can prove their allegations. This comes out of nowhere and seems like a plot from the Trump Presidency. That is why they have made love stories sweeter than the songs of Ariana Grande and Selena Gomez. This is why they target Maduro and his associates. This is how it seems.
I’m not buying the stories nor the sudden indictment from a corrupt and impartial government like the US government. They are not believable. This is done as ploy for Guaido. They want another Morales served and sentenced. That is the message.
This is the “Washington Consensus” at the moment. So, I’m not buying tickets to their shows. Peace.
Well, the Republic of Bolivia is now in turmoil as the first stages post the Coup d’etat is happening right now. The American backers and pro-Republican Party forces are trying to play-out the ZANU-PF style (2017). Not this isn’t coup, but later they will reveal it was a coup. They want us to believe that stupid, but were not that stupid.
We know something is up too, when President Trump releases a statement saying this:“These events send a strong signal to the illegitimate regimes in Venezuela and Nicaragua that democracy and the will of the people will always prevail. We are now one step closer to a completely democratic, prosperous, and free Western Hemisphere” (Statement from President Donald J. Trump Regarding the Resignation of Bolivian President Evo Morales, 11.11.2019).
With that sort of message, we can see something are in the air. President Trump want more friendly dictators around, his puppets to reign. That’s why his disappointed that Guaido of Venezuela wasn’t able to topple Maduro through support from the US. That’s why Trump had to mention that, as his in joy that he gotten some of his friendly counterparts in power in Bolivia. This being getting rid of Morales and getting Camacho. This is all overthrowing socialist presidents for a right-wing fascists, just like the US has done in the past in Latin America.
They are saying it was not a coup d’etat, even if the Commander of the Armed Forces General Williams Kaliman warned the President of what would happen if he didn’t step down. The Police Chief Yuri Calderon called the President to do the same thing. While the US has supported the Organization of American States (OAS) and the fascist Luis Fernando Camacho to power. This after failing to win the 20th October 2019 elections.
Therefore, what we are now seeing is relics of the past. Not too long ago, the US tried to coup d’etat the President in Venezuela. That didn’t work, but they were able to pull it off in Bolivia.
As President Evo Morales are now fleeing to exile in Mexico. His allies are in trouble, his indigenous tribes are also been violently attacked and targeted by armed forces. This is happening, while the world is calling this not a coup.
Because how weird is this that so-called activists against the Morales Regime, like Jhanisse Vaca Daza is a part of the Human Rights Foundation, which PR Firm is run by former Bush-Cheney Officals. While letting her on Main-Stream Media telling the stories of the protests and being a useful voice for the pro-fascist. It all seems so fine and dandy, when nuggets like these arrive.
The others can toy it around, but not like US haven’t funded, used para-military or other ways to get their puppets in-charge of a Latin American Republic in the past. It has happen so often, the likes of Chomsky and others cannot spell it out quickly enough. This is an CIA infused operation with the help of allies within Bolivia. They have all conspired and done this. There was also scheduled plans to work with OAS to discredit and give further reason for the “resignation”. This is not a new tactic either.
Therefore, this is a new “Operation Condor”. The small frames of proof is coming out. That it’s not hearsay nor just wild speculation. There is too many signs and questionable actors on the other side. Plus their violence against the citizens, use of war-planes to install fear in La Paz. Certainly, this wouldn’t happen if there wasn’t anything.
While Camacho is also saying if the MPs of MAS-ISPS isn’t resigning, they should fear for their lives. This does not sound like a “peaceful transition” but a hostile takeover by a puppet administration. Certainly for some minerals(lithium), gold and access of wealth for the party sponsoring the coup d’etat.
Last, but not least. We should not kid ourselves. The US has sponsored coup’s and will continue to do so. Especially in countries where their influence matters and where they can have a Pinochet or anyone else who will be doing their bidding. Peace.
