President Donald Trump put a number of folks on notice with his speech at the United Nations earlier this month.
The tensions with North Korea were a big part of Trump’s address, as was the bogus deal with Iran from the previous administration.
Trump also raised some eyebrows by calling attention to the situation in Venezuela, but the reality is that acknowledging the situation is long overdue.
In addition to capturing the attention of his critics for those remarks, Trump also had a captive audience in the form of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
NOQ Report shares the details on that.
It looks like Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is preparing for war with the United States. He has now asked his army to make sure it has “rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the ready,” as the rhetoric heats up even further between the US and Venezuela. Maduro just asked the citizens of Venezuela to eat rabbits they have kept as pets to help stave off starvation in his country. I doubt that will do much good. On average, each person in Venezuela has lost over 20 pounds since his dictatorship kicked into high gear. They are eating pets and zoo animals. Next stop… cannibalism.
In the meantime, Maduro is giving what food they have to his military. They are eliminating their prison problem by starving the inmates to death. That food also goes to the military. But it is questionable if the military there is getting enough to be in fighting condition or to stay that way.
Maduro is not pleased that Trump is following up his words with actions, and he’s decided that the best course of action is to ramp up the rhetoric. Unfortunately for America, we do need to take his threats seriously, as unprepared as they might be, since they probably have the communist backing of China and Russia.
“We have been shamelessly threatened by the most criminal empire that ever existed and we have the obligation to prepare ourselves to guarantee peace,” Maduro proclaimed. The pompous despot is busy prancing around in military garb and trying to look powerful. One minute he says he wants prosperity for Venezuela, the next he says, “we need to have rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the ready…to defend every inch of the territory if needs be.” He doesn’t want prosperity, he wants complete control, belying the murderous communist that he really is.
In short, we have another leader of a rogue nation that has had far too much of his own Kool-Aid.
Maduro would be wise to take Trump’s words and actions to heart, as the alternative is his ouster.
Based on his rhetoric, it sounds like he’s determined to continue poking the bear.
