1. They are mighty paranoid in that part of the world..



President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela accused the United States and Colombia of conspiring to poison him. Announcing on May 30 that the “entire Colombian state is in agreement” to topple him from power in concert with the U.S., which has had a troubled relationship with the oil-rich South American for at least a decade while the now deceased President Hugo Chavez was in power. Maduro had a series of television interviews in which he denounced a “psychological operation” and “economic sabotage” directed against himself and Venezuela.

On the evening of May 30, Maduro said that Colombia has received “a team from Miami, with (former U.S. ambassador) Roger Noriega, only they can say how Maduro knows so much, but I have to say it: it has to do with my life; a team of experts has arrived with poison and they are prepared to come to Venezuela to inject me with the venom.”

Maduro continued along these lines, saying “No, not to make me die in one day, but to made me sick over the course of the coming two months. Do I stand back silently? I must denounce and confront it. They will not be able to do it; be assured that they will not be able to do it, because I am going to live many years and remain president of this country for many years.”
