Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just disgusting an UK Foreign Minister speaking about shared values in the same breath as uttering the names of "Mike Pompeo" and criminal "John Bolton".

... and joining the US in threat for a military coup and process of regime change in Venezuela citing extreme poverty and economic bankruptcy.

    What are the causes of today's economic crisis in Venezuela? The mainstream media would have us believe that it is attributable exclusively to the failure of the socialistic model ... too many ideologues, too few technocrats, amateurs who do not know how to run the economy. Even if there is some truth to that, other factors weigh in, notably the fall of oil prices, Venezuela's principal source of income.  Seldom do we read in the media about the economic war being waged against Venezuela since 1998, the internationally-inspired coup in 2002, sabotage of the economy by monopolies and the private sector, hoarding of foods and medicines to be resold in the black market, an enormous level of contraband of subsidized foods and medicines into Colombia, Brazil and Aruba, and the effects of Obama and Trump sanctions, sanctions by Canada and the European Union, all of which have aggravated the suffering.[Source: Norman Finkelstein]
