We Are Being Lied Into War Again...

I was 23 when we invaded Iraq, and I wasn’t sure it was based on lies, but something deep down in me told me it was based on lies. Kinda like if your blind date shows up and you notice he has a 2004 flip phone.

It seems vaguely worrisome, and no explanation he can haltingly supply will put you at ease. Plus, anyone else who acts like it’s normal also becomes suspect.

The invasion of Iraq just felt like it was a lie to me. And it turned out that I was right, that it was a lie, and that the entirety of the mainstream media and our government were either wrong or lying and, most of the time, both.

Now our government and our media are trying their damnedest to lie us into another war, this one with Venezuela. They tell us the Venezuelan people are desperate for necessities like toothpaste, while independent journalists show piles of affordable toothpaste in Caracas.

And even if they didn’t have toothpaste, that hardly seems like a good reason for America to begin dropping our long-range bad decisions on the heads of innocent people. Turning a town into an impact crater for the sake of a battle to stop gingivitis seems a bit extreme.

The mainstream media and nearly the entirety of the US government tell us Juan Guaido is the “interim president,” even though he was never elected to that position and the current president is still leading the Venezuelan government and military. So I guess this “interim” is the time between Guaido being a nobody and the time when he goes back to being nobody but now gets to tell women at parties, “You know, I used to be interim president.”

Venezuela aid truck torched by protesters, MSM finally admit… but of course Maduro’s still to blame
The mainstream media also inform us that the Venezuelan military set US aid trucks on fire, when video shows opposition forces doing it. Furthermore, the idea of Venezuela taking “aid” from the country whose sanctions are crushing them would be like the Standing Rock Sioux accepting gift packages from the construction crews swiss-cheesing their land to lay down the Dakota Access pipeline. Unless the boxes are filled with industrial paper towels to help clean up oil spills, I fail to see how it would be beneficial. Sometimes you do indeed have to look a gift horse in the mouth (or should I say “gift dog”).

6. Perhaps Trump has made a deal with the Deep State. ...

They stop trying to find a way to get rid of him and he gives them a nice little war in Venezuela to help them get over the pain of not having Hillary in the Oval Office.

7. Neocons are jonesing for a win somewhere as everything they've touched for the last

2 decades has turned to shit.

Finally, they might have found themselves a militarily weak country that they can win...with lots of oil to boot!!! See the motivation here, "lots of oil"?

I wouldn't lay many chips down that they can pull this one off either and still anticipating a horrendous "false-flag" to grease the skids.

10. People in our nation are sick and tired of endless wars ...

It may take a false-flag event to get our people to support a new conflict.

13. Your thesis is moronic....

the US is now the largest exporter of oil. The old canard that the US attacks countries for oil is ignorant.

What is happening is Venezuela has become the neighbor in an apartment building that doesnt take out their trash.

Millions of refugees have spilled into surrounding countries. No lying about that. I just got back from Peru 2 weeks ago. I went to consult with their Tax service to forecast the economic effects of onboarding over a million new people to the economy and the Social Security program. (Not exactly SS, but a pension plan nonetheless)

I dont like American intervention anywhere. As a Libertarian I despise the concept of force. However, I hate the disingenousness of liberals. You are fine with sonofabitches invading other countries as long as it is YOUR sonofabitch.

11. It's too bad we don't have an honest press

Then we wouldn't have to wonder what the truth is because we'd believe them.

14. So...what....

...everything is just fine in Venezuela? According to that 'article' everyone is lying about the conditions.....soooooo..there's no crisis? No famine? Locals didn't pillage the zoo animals for meat? No refugees fleeing into neighboring countries? No huge electrical grid blackouts?

Wow....our media has certainly put on quite the production to give the impression Venezuela is quickly spiraling into complete chaos

20. After the draconian sanctions imposed by the neocon US, indeed that country is

struggling.

Should make you proud, eh?

21. Why....

..would I be proud? I don't recall having a say on any sanctions, or much of anything really but, are ALL of Venezuela's current problems a result of US Sanctions?
