Another US invasion on the way

Venezuela is in constant turmoil and president Maduro is not ready to give up on the situation. Maduro’s reforms brought hyperinflation in the country and caused a massive migration. Venezuelans flee the country and many to take the road to Colombia.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has proposed the invasion of Venezuela to topple Maduro’s Government and change the regime in the country. In an interview with ABC’s ‘This Week’ on Sunday, he stated

“All options are on the table. When it comes to intervening militarily in Venezuela. The president has his full range of Article 2 authorities and I’m very confident that any action we took in Venezuela would be lawful,”

Pompeo refused a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov over Venezuela’s situation. The US warned Russia over its interference in Venezuela’s politics. Pompeo said

The Russians need to get out,” he told ABC. “Every country that is interfering with the Venezuelan people’s right to restore their own democracy needs to leave.”

Inflation rate in Venezuela is projected to Hit 10,000,000% in 2019.
