I said he WOULD win after Hillary was declared the Dem candidate in 2016 and I'm

saying Biden will win come 2020 if it is a Trump v Biden race.

Civilians Are The Real Victims (and targets) Of Trumps Venezuela Sanctions


Published time: 25 Apr, 2019 18:50

The Trump administration claims that its increasingly punitive sanctions on Venezuela “do not target the innocent people” but the government of President Nicolas Maduro. A new report on the effects of sanctions debunks that myth.

The analysis, compiled by Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), found that the sanctions have increased hunger, disease, mortality, have displaced millions of Venezuelans and exacerbated the country's economic crisis. Overall, the report says the measures have caused “very serious harm to human life and health, including an estimated more than 40,000 deaths” between 2017 and 2018.

Weisbrot and Sachs, both well-known American economists, wrote that:

The sanctions in fact “fit the definition of collective punishment of the civilian population” as described by the Geneva and Hague conventions, as well as being “illegal under international law.”

Yet, a totally different narrative has been adopted by mainstream media in the US, which seems to unquestioningly accept the Trump administration’s claims that civilians are not the targets. Ever since Trump recognized unelected opposition figure Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s self-declared “interim president” in January while calling for the overthrow of Maduro, big chunks of the media have cheered on his efforts. It barely even raised eyebrows when national security advisor John Bolton went on Fox News and admitted that oil was the US’s major interest in the country.

Certainly a false-flag event would give the neocons/zionist cover leading up to

the 2020.

Much too quiet they, but something has to "blow" early next year...

Bookmarked.
