Venezuela coup: "We're looking at the oil" admits John Bolton on video, January 24, 2019
Right from the neocon horse's mouth. Nothing to do with democracy. All about oil, money, power for corporations.




Full transcript at this link but I'm also pasting below:

---TRANSCRIPT---

JOHN BOLTON: “We’re looking at the oil assets. That’s the single most important income stream to the government of Venezuela. We’re looking at what to do to that.

We want everybody to know, we’re looking at all this seriously. We don’t want any American businesses or investors caught by surprise. They can see what President Trump did yesterday. We’re following through on it.”

TRISH REGAN: “So if you think of a company like Citgo, which is owned by PDVSA, which is the state-run oil company there in Venezuela, we have a lot of those Citgo assets right here in the US. Is that something, for example sir, that you are looking at?”

JOHN BOLTON: “Yeah look, we’re in conversation with major American companies now that are either in Venezuela, or in the case of Citgo here in the United States. I think we’re trying to get to the same end result here.

Venezuela is one of the three countries I called the ‘Troika of Tyranny.’

It will make a big difference to the United States economically if we could have American oil companies really invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela.

It would be good for Venezuela; it would be good for the people of the United States. We both have a lot at stake here making this come out the right way.”.

Venezuela refines their oil in Russia. Or should I say Russia buys it and refines then sells it to china. Not in USD..
This is why the u.s is going down there to fuck that country up.. It will be the next Iraq...

Then don't BS people and say it's about democracy and the poor starving people of Venezuela. It's like you just admitted: a global, strategic powerplay with oil (what else is new?).

I notice all the people saying have pity on the poor, oppressed Venezuelans by supporting our military intervention are pretty quiet about Saudi atrocities in Yemen and what they're doing to the Yemen children.

Just another neocon con game. Every single US intervention into a foreign country has been prefaced by the bs narrative that this is a humanitarian mission, but every single intervention has left that country far worse off than it was before.

And do we as average American's benefit from these interventions? Hell no. Just look at what happened to the middle class. Wiped out. While the elite are richer than ever. Trickle down economics my ass.
