    Rather surprising that so many would welcome the same sort of failed crap to this country.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    True enough, but not without a little help from their friends!!!!

    An internal document authored by three organizations from Colombia and the United States, evidences a sinister plan against the Venezuelan state to provoke violence – even death – with the intention of justifying an international intervention in anticipation of municipal elections scheduled for next December 8.

    The document, titled “Strategic Venezuelan Plan”, was prepared by the Democratic Internationalism Foundation (FID | Inicio), headed by ex Colombian president Alvaro Uribe, together with the First Colombia Think Tank (FCPPC | Inicio) and the US Consulting firm, FTI Consulting (FTI Consulting | A Global Consulting Firm | Strategy Consulting). Dated June 13, 2013, the plan was developed during a meeting between representatives from these three organizations, leaders of the Venezuelan opposition, including Maria Corina Machado, Julio Borges and Ramon Guillermo Avelado, expert in psychological operations J.J. Rendon and the Director of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) for Latin America, Mark Feierstein.

    Venezuela is in the same sinking petro-state boat as Russia.
