    Guaido is showing more and more his true intentions, which are to provide a dubious legitimacy for a violent US intervention in Venezuela -- nothing different from what the northern country has been doing in Latin America for decades.

    However, when pro-US dictators quashed liberties and massacred populations, the US would claim the principle of non-intervention in sovereign states.

    Once again the despicable Castroist Kamerad/Komrade Rique, supports torture, selective starvation based on political loyalty, and state terror, showing HIS true intentions.Far from being a supporter of human rights, he supports thuggery and murder. Just a little reminder of who you really support, Kriminal...

    Bon appetit, eh Kamerad/Komrade?
