    Currently a US-supported coup ongoing in Venezuela?

    Because I don't know and saw that somewhere, I'm starting a thread on it.

    I literally said I don't know, so there's no BS here at all.

    This is more a case of "I heard this somewhere and am wondering what the hell and if it's true."

    There's no official report on that, but you can bet that various intelligence communities will be taking advantage of this opportunity.

    Yes, Venezuela is an oil rich country, and yes, it's oil that we want. We were already getting it through IMF usury before Maduro came to power.

    Go read the OP again, if you doubt me.

    I could perhaps have been more clear that the "something something for the oil" was in the nature of a half joke and half wondering if it was true because that was mentioned in what I heard as well.

    I hope the US is behind it and I hope we level that ****hole. Venezuela deserves it.

    It's a proud tradition in that part of the world, certainly.
