U.S. military forces ready to attack Venezuela

U.S. Southern Commander Craig S. Faller

Washington, April 15 (RHC)-- In the U.S., Pentagon officials say that the U.S. military is "on the balls of our feet" and awaits instructions from President Donald Trump to attack Venezuela.  Media sources quoted U.S. Southern Commander Craig S. Faller as saying that the United States is ready to attack Venezuela by the end of the year.

In a recent interview, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton claimed that Washington is particularly concerned over growing Chinese, Russian and Cuban influence in its hemisphere.  Bolton stated that his boss, Donald Trump, is determined not to see Venezuela fall under the sway of foreign powers."  He has a custom of referring to the racist Monroe Doctrine, which considers Latin America to be the U.S. own backyard where it can do as it pleases.

This is, however, the first time that a member of the U.S. military leadership has spoken out about a possible military intervention against Venezuela.  Faller stated that the U.S. military is "on the balls of our feet" and awaits instructions from President Donald Trump.  Faller refused to give further details about what exactly he meant, but compared the situation with war-torn Syria.
"The crisis in Venezuela could approach that degree by the end of this year if Maduro still remains in power," he added.  Meanwhile, the United States government has approved a set of aggressive sanctions that seek to economically choke the people of Venezuela and isolate the country from the rest of the world. 

Allies of the Bolivarian Republic have since stepped up efforts to provide aid in the forms of medicine and surgical equipment to Venezuela and promised to continue their work with the legitimate government of Venezuela under President Nicolas Maduro as they oppose U.S. diplomatic and economic aggressions.
