FAA bans low flights over Venezuela's airspace, citing political instability

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Tuesday evening issued an order prohibiting U.S. air operators from flying below 26,000 feet in Venezuela’s airspace until further notice, citing “increasing political instability and tensions”.

The FAA notice said any air operators currently in Venezuela, which would include private jets, should depart within 48 hours.

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido on Tuesday made his strongest call yet to the military to help him oust President Nicolas Maduro but there were no concrete signs of defection from the armed forces leadership.

American Airlines Group Inc in March said it was indefinitely suspending its flights to Venezuela, as the country continued to struggle with political turmoil and unrest.

1. Oh. Is Bolton setting-up in Venezuela to shoot down an aircraft?

Given cover and spin, that would work as a false flag excuse for direct US military intervention, wouldn't it?

2. Your boy is going down. Sooner the better for the ever-suffering citizens of a once rich country.

A rich country robbed blind by Chavez and Maduro. Millions forced to flee their own country. Citizens starving; not even able to afford basic staples. Billions in business revenue stolen.
Prove to us that this is false & has not happened.
