–Venezuela: The ongoing U.S. intervention in Colombia is as pure a Neoconservative operation as it is possible to imagine. The Neocons want to kick out one socialist president and install another socialist president, a process they describe as an effort to reestablish a Venezuelan democracy.
Now, why would any American believe this? We have seen the Neocons do the same thing in Libya, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, etc. and none of those mad crusades yielded anything approximating a democratic or republican system of government. What they yielded were dead and maimed Americans and a bankrupt U.S. Treasury. Indeed, while the Neocons insist that they are spreading democracy in Venezuela, they are resolutely backing their colleagues in the NATO governments, even as most of those regimes are actively adopting laws suppressing free speech; ignoring majority votes of the electorate; arresting and jailing citizens for opposing government policy, especially on immigration; limiting the right of assembly; and, naturally, increasing efforts to stop any flow of weapons to their long-disarmed and now migrant-and regime-besieged citizenry, knowing that civil wars are coming in several NATO countries.
