"No War for Oil" as Thousands March Against US Intervention in Venezuela

A thuggish GOP president, an oil-rich country, a difficult upcoming re-election campaign. History repeating itself?

1. While I fully support non-interventionism, seeing Jill Stein in this vid really causes me to SMH.

 

The non-interventionism supporters of Venezuela need Jill Stein like they need a big wet fart to stain their movement.

2. The non-intervention Venezuelans is a minority

The vast majority of Venezuelans do want an intervention, they want the regime removed, they want the corrupt military which is being commanded by the Cubans removed. I wonder how much money Stein is getting paid by the Maduro regime.

She isn't helpful in any context.

9. Jill Stein is involved in trying to sow disruption among Democrats. That's it. That's her purpose.

Have we been seeing her in other protests or making statements in the last two years?

3. That rally was not even in Venezuela, what fake

And on top of that it is an RT video? Are you kidding me? What a bunch of crap this is.

7. Well, there can't be a protest in Venezuela right now. It's pretty much locked down, I think.

Political upheaval. No power.

The video says Real News Network. Not RT.

This looks like a wacko group to me. Jill Stein? Seriously? Gee, I wonder why someone did this video, at the time that the election campaigning is gearing up? Gee, I just can't imagine.

10. As of Sunday evening, power is back. No lockdown.

 

Not sure why you'd post comments w/o knowing.

12. So there's time?

There's time to plan a protest right away? Would they have made phone calls? Texts? Emails? Time to make signs and make arrangements on a meeting place? And drop all they need to do to get their lives in order after turmoil and no power? Do they not have to go to work? Will they get their paychecks if they don't?

Not sure why you'd post comments without understanding the realities of organizing something in an area of turmoil without power, or considering their need to work, so they'll paid.

13. I was only commenting on your posting comments on a topic that you think are correct...

 

... without knowing if its correct or not. Well, it's not correct.

As to the rest of your comments to me, I'll take them into the consideration they're worth.

Cheers

14. I was only commenting on your posting comments on a topic that you think are correct...

but which you haven't given any thought to.

Whether the power was restored today or yesterday or three days ago, the country is in turmoil, people are scrambling to keep their lives, property and family protected, and work will become a high priority, after not getting paid for some time, now.

Maybe you have never lived through a natural disaster, which is what Venezuela is having right now. Common sense tells us all (well, mostly all) that they would not be having protests in the midst of this upheaval of their lives, where everything they have is at risk of being lost.

In the next week or two, it might be a different matter.

15. I have family in Venezuela.

 

My mother is Venezuelan.

Since you didn't know that, again, I'll take your uninformed, rude and condescending commentary for what it is worth. Un desperdicio.

Have a nice day.

4. I could not get the name of the guy who was interviewed

He is not a Venezuelan, why are these people rallying against something that Venezuelans want? What gives them the right to do that? This is as screwed up as I have ever seen, and the fact that some people legitimize it is depressing.

Why don't they ask the Venezuelan people what they want? Because they are going to hear the opposite of what these propagandists are saying...This is pathetic!

11. Those speakers at the US non-intervention rally do report from Venezuela.

 

And their reports run entirely contrary to your comments.

Maybe you should check out some of them as sources before spouting off with some comments about a topic you seen to know very very little about.
