Should the United States intervene in Venezuela?

no.Neither through war, nor through sanctions.

I had already published the following answer on Spanish at Forum

(https://es.quora.com/Crees-que-s… ):

Sanctions are immoral.The wars of the United States are also immoral. The damage caused by sanctions in the Third World is much worse than what Western era envisaes. The problem with the United States’ foreign policy is that the people who shape the policy are immoral and that the citizens of the United States do not pose a moral challenge to politics.

For example, if you read websites like the Atlantic Council (NATO spokesman), you’ll probably never find an article that mentions the word “moral.”When a country abandons all notions of morality, politics is not only amoral, but quickly becomes immoral. This is reflected in the fact that the wars in the United States since World War II have killed between 1.5 and 2 million people, mainly civilians who were not enemies of the United States, and sanctions have also killed countless thousands of people. Innocents killed.

The aftermath of the war in Iraq left most of the country without electricity and clean water.Under these conditions, people must drink water from the rivers, lakes and puddles left after the rain. This means that most people who drink this water without having cooked it beforewill will have a dysentery that, if not treated (the sanctions leave them without medication), can also kill the patient.

The irony of all this is that the majority of the American population considers themselves Christian.But Christian ethics and morality are not applied to politics by these Christians for some reason, especially foreign policy. While some Christian groups oppose abortion on moral grounds, none of the groups that do so oppose the immoral sanctions and the war of the United States. Therefore, everything seems superficial.

A very important fact is that the United States waited seven years after the end of the Iraq war in 2003 to lift the sanctions, that is, in 2010.What was your reason for this? Did you think that weapons of mass destruction still exist? The Iraqi people had already suffered cruelly during the war, mainly as a result of the “humanitarian” bombings in the UNITED States, which (depending on who reports) claimed between 150,000 and 400,000 lives, and then had to face intolerable sanctions for seven years. to suffer.

During the war in Syria (NO civil war, because the fighters, mainly terrorists, came from more than 80 countries), the United States also imposed sanctions.Now that the war is over, the United States is banning all countries from helping to rebuild the disaster caused, and sanctions will continue.

Obviously, there is no tangible morality in Washington.There is also tacit racism and neo-colonialism in United States politics. It is exactly the opposite of The Foreign Policy of Russia and China. A survey of Arab youth reflects a large loss of confidence in the United States and a significant increase in confidence in Russia in this group, which regards the United States as an enemy.

On April 5, 2019, a group of Venezuelan government officials, a group of Russian investors and representatives met in Moscow and signed 11 agreements aimed at lifting venezuela’s people out of poverty.The agreements covered various sectors and covered electricity and agriculture. The agreement in the field of agriculture will benefit people, as food has to be imported from abroad in the past. Russia has a lot of experience in this area because it has been violated by US sanctions and has been forced to grow its own food. Russia has been so successful in agriculture that it is now the world’s first exporter of wheat.
