An Ocean of Lies on Venezuela: Abby Martin & UN Rapporteur Expose Coup

YouTube has the video An Ocean of Lies on Venezuela: Abby Martin & UN Rapporteur Expose Coup.

I have another thought experiment to propose to you. I realize that some people are incapable of thinking about anything that does not already exist, so they cannot do this thought experiment.

Suppose that for some reason the USA empire crumbles and we don’t get to write the history books. How will history remember the people of the USA as they allowed this Venezuelan war to be waged by the USA? Will history believe the USA people are not guilty because they didn’t know? Think of how history talks about the German people of WW II who allowed Hitler’s genocide because they claim they didn’t know? Maybe your parents and grandparents never passed on their understanding of the WW II era history.

Even the supposedly peaceful candidate, Bernie Sanders, feigns ignorance of what is going on in Venezuela. He does not mention that the humanitarian suffering that is plaguing Venezuels could be ended if the USA would lift its sanctions against Venezuela. It is not enough that our sanctions violate international law, but we have to pretend they aren’t crimes against humanity.
