SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday he is working with the U.S. government to sow dissent within the Venezuelan Army.

Bolsonaro, during an interview with Jovem Pan radio, said that if there is a military invasion in Venezuela, he would ask seek the counsel of Brazil’s National Defence Council and Congress on what, if any, action his country should take.

“We cannot allow Venezuela to become a new Cuba or North Korea,” the right-wing president said.

Bolsonaro said that if any military intervention actually deposed Venezuela’s president, Nicolas Maduro, it is quite likely that the country would see guerrilla warfare waged by Maduro’s diehard backers and whomever took power.

1. Guerrilla warfare wouldnt last long unless it was Cuban & Russian guerrillas.

As soon as the country got back on its feet, any VZ dissent would melt away with their loot and stop fighting.

2. I wondered what the purpose was of Bolsonaro's visit at the WH a few weeks ago.

I guess it was to lay down plans. Don’t forget now, Trump may also be handing over a goodly size chunk of South America to his Russian alter-ego, the Vlad. The Russians already have troops in Venezuela and are planning to send even more.
