The USA withdraws its remaining diplomats from Venezuela.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/03/12/us-pull-remaining-diplomats-Venezuela/

Power is still out with parts of the country having now gone five days with no electricity. Thousands have been marching in protest in Caracas, with Maduro employing the riot police, the National Guard and armoured vehicles to police the march.

Although communications have been hit with the lack of power, worse still is the lack of power in hospitals, back-up generators not having been sufficient to deal with a n outage of this magnitude. There are reports of deaths from the failure of medical equipment.

The aid protests of the Venezuela-Columbia border are evidently unnerving Maduro sufficiently that he feels obliged to use armed force against them. Former Columbian Socialist guerrillas are being employed to arm and train civilian paramilitaries to fight protesters.

With this rise in armed violence directed at the civilian population, Maduro is ramping up the tension and lighting the fuse that may well trigger a civil war. The USA is withdrawing its diplomats, something that might be for their own safety or as a diplomatic signal to Maduro.

Either way, watch this space.

  1. It's the USA withdrawing their diplomats so Corbyn will label them as the enemy here.
  2. The USA don't like Maduro.
  3. If they are the enemy then Maduro must be a friend.
  4. If Maduro is a friend then he cannot be to blame.
  5. If Maduro is not to blame then there must be an enemy working to undermine and discredit Maduro.
  6. The USA are the enemy therefore the USA are responsible.
 
Thank you. Makes perfect sense in a drug fueled, low oxygen environment Alice in Wonderland way. Just what you want making policy in the UK.

Be afraid...

Some people in Venezuela have turned to looting shops to get food and drink.

Venezuela seeks to restore power amid looting; China offers help | Reuters

Meanwhile, although some areas have restored power, it is by no means back on across the country as a whole. China has stepped in to help, which is an interesting development and one which will likely concern Putin. The Chinese are backing up Maduro's line that the power outages are down to US sabotage, even though local engineers and former energy company officials say that, 'A technical problem with transmission lines linking the Guri hydroelectric plant in southeastern Venezuela to the national power grid likely caused the blackout'.

LGBT activists arrested at Cuba march
Wrong sort of LGBT or wrong sort of socialism ?

Cuba's gay rights activists take to the streets defiant and proud
Last year, Cuba’s evangelical churches united for the first time to campaign against gay marriage, which the Communist party hoped to legalise in the island’s new constitution. The churches’ vigorous campaign – which included petitions, flyposting, and even public demonstrations – rocked the government.
So the Cuban communist government planned to legalise gay marriage but some Christian circles pressure the government to prevent it.
“It looks like they have given in to pressures from religious extremists,” said gay ecologist Isbel Díaz Torres, 43. “Cancelling the event is a way of avoiding confrontation but in the end it just makes the situation more complicated.”
So, under pressure from the religious extremists the communist government had to ban the gay march.
Bishop Ricardo Pereira, of the Methodist Church of Cuba, who led unprecedented protests against gay marriage in February, said he was glad the Communist authorities had taken stock of public feeling.
But who is funding the extremists?
Like many churches on the island, the Methodist Church of Cuba receives money that originates from the US state department...

Communist atheiest state. Before Castro Roman Catholic not a lot of Methodists.
 
(1) Communist atheiest state. (2) Before Castro Roman Catholic not a lot of Methodists.
1) As you may see there are religious freedoms in Cuba. One can not deny it.
2) Yes the Cubans are traditionally Catholics. However, apparently US states department funds protestant Churches along with dissident groups for political reasons.

As for the gays rights in Cuba then it is unfair to blame the government. Religious extremists funded by Washington mainly are responsible.
 
Wrong. The government capitulated because it was weak.

My opinion is different. I suppose that Cuban government tolerates or even stimulates the conflict between gay rights activists and clerical circles. It is not something new - Divide and rule.
The role of US States Department is not clear. For what reason it is funding religious extremists?

Your lies are so transparent. If you were anything but Russian you would be embarrassed, but of course Russians know no shame.

The Cuban Government didn’t have to do any such thing. Even if they did operate any sort of semblance of Demcracy, Protestants makeup less than 5% of the population.
 
They probably used all their available fuel taxiing from their dispersal points.
Well they wouldn't really want to get airborne against US forces if they want to use them again, hence disposable.
