    The propaganda has now reached Contra war levels. The Red Cross and the UN had warned the US against this PR stunt. Elliot Abrams has a history of using humanitarian aid as a vehicle for delivering aid to rightist paramilitaries. The bridge in question has also been closed since 2015.

    In addition, Mike Pompeo now claims that Hezbollah cells are in Venezuela.... If that frightens you then you are what's called a "low information voter." I do not have the time or the energy to explain the absurdity of this claim. Just know that Pompeo and the media do not respect your intelligence and that they are not your friend.

    I strongly question the US motives.

    Let the Venezuelans sort it out. If they want to rise up so be it, if they want to stick with Maduro no skin off my back.

    Do you have anything that actually proves he is letting the aid through?

    Nothing you quoted is actual evidence.

    Surely someone, somewhere has snapped a picture of aid being delivered.

    Right?

    Former US Ambassador to Venezuela William Brownfield, who pressed for more sanctions on Venezuela, admitted that the US is going to make the Venezuelan people suffer until Maduro is ousted and Guaidó is installed:

    Only US aid has been blocked. Neither the Red Cross or the UN have said anything about their assistance being rejected. From the article.

    You also ignored Vincent Bevins tweet:
    Do you have anything to say about the US punishing the Venezuelan population for voting the wrong way last year?
