With the vast majority of the world still seeing Nicolas Maduro as the legitimate leader of Venezuela, America’s hawkish special envoy has hinted that Washington might sanction third parties that defy the US regime-change efforts.
The international community must choose sides wisely in the Venezuelan conflict, the curator of US intervention in the Latin American country, special envoy Elliott Abrams, suggested on Tuesday, noting that Washington would not limit itself to economic sanctions just against the Maduro government, but against all who chose to support him.

“Secondary sanctions, it’s clearly a possibility,” Abrams said at a press conference, warning that a decision to sanction third party countries “would depend on the conduct of the regime over time.”

So far some 54 countries have bowed to US pressure and recognized the self-proclaimed ‘interim president’ Juan Guaido, who since January has been rallying support for regime change. Whilst the US claims the “momentum is good” to get more countries on board, the majority of the world’s countries and population rejected Washington’s “imperialist” ambitions, Colin Cavell, associate professor of political science at Bluefield State College, told RT.

The US administration is “internationalizing the Venezuelan conflict on a very dangerous basis... threatening other countries who deal with Venezuela, saying that if you do not support our sanctions, we are going to impose sanctions on you,” Cavell explained.

3. they may not support Maduro, but the will not oppose him either

Passive aggressive inaction is the diplomatic norm to cope with the US these days.

2. I just love bad RT articles.

They are fucking hilarious.

"With the vast majority of the world" supporting Maduro?



That's not truth. That is propaganda. But hey, Cuba, China, the Islamic ME, and Russia support Maduro. I wonder what so many of these countries have in common?

Dr. Collin Cavell? Some associate professor at a no-name college? Wait, what does he have in common with the above countries? I will give you a hint.
