Conflict among nations escalates for Venezuela situation


By Rim Won

The battle continues between Maduro's government and anti-government forces pivoting on Guaido, so that the situation is building up to a more complicated conjuncture in Venezuela.

Venezuela's complexity of a political conjuncture affects the relationship among countries that are divided into pro-Maduro and pro-Guaido. They continue war of reproach each other. Confrontation intensifies.

Incompatibility is being revealed in the relations between Russia and the U.S. and between Cuba and the U.S.

Now the international community expresses worry that the U.S. has threatened Russia and Cuba with allegations of Russian support for Venezuela government and that the U.S. has hung the allegations on its chin to make a fuss over the possibility of military intervention in Venezuela.

Not long ago, in a press interview, U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo said that Russia and Cuba would pay an expensive price if they won't unhand Venezuela issue.

To the question about the possibility of U.S. military intervention in Venezuela, he answered that military action be possible and if that's what's required, that's what the United States would do.

Many countries of the world say that the U.S. has an ax to grind so that it beguiles Venezuela into the box-up on the one hand and plans to implement contingency response including military action on the other. Russia came forward and severely animadverted upon the U.S. of its infringement on Venezuela's sovereignty.

Russia's foreign minister Lavrov fulminated against the U.S. that it appointed interim president of a foreign country, demanded the legitimate government to surrender, and threatened to enforce sanctions and use military forces.

He said that all the speeches and moves of the U.S. were no different from a ringing declaration to return to nearly 200-year-old Monroe Doctrine, emphasizing that it was a disregard for the entire people of Latin America as well as Venezuela.

The Monroe Doctrine is the U.S. foreign policy that the fifth president of the U.S. James Monroe hung out in 1823.

Monroe proposed the slogan "America for Americans" in order to block European powers' infiltration of Latin America. But past history has demonstrated that the Monroe Doctrine is a shield to reinforce internal intervention and econo-cultural infiltration to Latin American countries, that is, an aggression policy to colonize Latin America and hold hegemony in the region.

Experts say that the U.S. is dragging the Organization of American States, the Lima Group, the European Union, and international financial institutions into fomenting "color revolution" in Venezuela and intends to apply the maneuver to Cuba and Nicaragua in the future. They evaluate the U.S. moves as an intensive manifestation of the Monroe Doctrine.

Russia expressed a strong dissatisfaction also with the sophism from the U.S. that Venezuela's president Maduro was prepared to flee to Cuba, but Russia persuaded him not to leave his country.

It is the Russian view that the U.S. purposes make an excuse for blaming Russia and especially drive a wedge between the current government and the people of Venezuela.

Cuba also reacts in a strong manner.

Cuba has dismissed the U.S. insistence that Cuba dispatched troops to help Venezuela, stigmatizing it as a ploy to justify new measures of anti-Cuba sanctions.

The U.S. has exerted persistent pressure on Cuba, saying that it will implement a comprehensive and complete blockade of Cuba if the latter continue military support for Venezuela.

President of the Council of State of the Republic of Cuba Miguel Mario Diaz-Canel Bermudez condemned the U.S. on Twitter: "With nearly 800 bases and hudreds of thousands troops around the world, U.S. is accusing Cuba of having military personnel in Venzuela. A Mockery of the world. An insult to two sovereign nations."

Foreign affairs ministry U.S. division's deputy head retorted: "There is no security force of Cuba in Venezuela. Our country does not dispatch troops and engages in no military operations. How can we withdraw safety forces that do not exist there?"

Opinions say that the relationship between Russia and the U.S. and the one between Cuba and the U.S, already interwoven with full of contradiction and friction, become more confused surrounding the situation in Venezuela.
