MILITARY INTERVENTION IN VENEZUELA ‘ON THE TABLE,’ SAYS OAS SECRETARY GENERAL

The head of the Organization of American States (OAS), accused by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro of being a “CIA agent,” says military intervention against Caracas should not be ruled out as a response to the ongoing crisis.
OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro has hinted that the bloc may consider taking military action in Venezuela if it runs out of diplomatic options in its bid to alleviate the plight of people in the crisis-stricken country.

“With regards to a military intervention aimed at overthrowing the regime of Nicolas Maduro, I think we should not exclude any option,” Almagro said on Friday.

Venezuelans have been fleeing to neighboring countries in droves due to shortages of food and water, as well as soaring inflation and unemployment at home.

Almagro was wrapping up his three-day trip to Colombia, which has been heavily impacted by the inward movement of refugees from Venezuela. Some 3,000 Venezuelans are estimated to be crossing into the country every day. Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Chile have also been sharing the refugee burden, with Brazil deploying troops to the border to restore order in the borderline state of Roraima after fierce clashes erupted between locals and migrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me, that OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro is actually floating the idea of an invasion, occupation, and regime change in Venezuela, to see how it resonates?!?

I would like to hope that the OAS is not pig-headedly stupid as to attempt this; even with Venezuela's current economic woes, I would not bet that the Venezuelan people will "welcome these troops as saviors", throwing roses at their feet.
