Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

I found it interesting today, in a press conference by John Bolton in front of the white house, he listed off a whole bunch of Maduro's high level people that he said had promised to change sides today, and did not.

Which seems to have a few possibilities:

A) they really did promise, and he was hoping that it would motivate them to go through with whatever they promised.

B) They never did, but that will sure get Maduro doubting their loyalty.

C) They did promise, and he was just outing them to Maduro in retaliation.

I guess B and C amount to the same outcome, so it does not matter beyond possibly spooking a bunch of other Maduro people to start worrying they might be the next name dropped at a white house press conference.

meanwhile, caracas chronicals over recent weeks / months seems to have been strangly dying off, with less and less information.

they killed their comment section a couple months ago, and the tone of the writing seems to now be anti-maduro but pro-socialist.

this was all they got out today.

And yep Charles, the AK47 is what it is. None in Australia but while working in Mongolia I finally got to put a hundred rounds through a Russian one. The best infantry rifle I´ve ever picked up, and I´ve picked up many over the years without ever being in infantry or a gun nut. I was Armour. As to trying to pick from mere photos peoples competence handling firearms, forget it unless they´re standing there with palm of hand resting over the muzzle. The kids in Africa with AKs were well documented as being as great a danger to themselves as anyone else, no training.

There is little mystery why the US would take pains to overthrow the government of little Nicaragua (population 6 million). In addition to Nicaragua’s current and historical geo-strategic importance, President Daniel Ortega’s administration greatly improved people’s lives, presenting what is often called “the threat of a good example.”

Prior to the war and during the Ortega administration, poverty and extreme poverty were halved. Basic healthcare and education were free. Illiteracy fell from one-third of the population to nearly zero. Access to electricity went from a little over half the population to 90%. Through state subsidy programs, small and medium agricultural producers had achieved near-complete food sovereignty for the country. In defiance of the dictates of the US and the global neoliberal order, Nicaragua failed to privatize essential public services, and kept friendly relations with Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, China and Iran.

Also notable, in light of the events of 2018, Nicaragua built a national police force recognized by the UN for its humane, community policing, headed until mid-2018 by Aminta Granera Sacasa, former nun, mother of three and Sandinista revolutionary, who during her tenure was among the most popular politicians in the country.

In the eyes of the US, these achievements are capital crimes.

"The threat of a good example" pretty much explains it....
