During a Periscope broadcast Juan Guaido, a key Venezuelan opposition figure and self-proclaimed interim president, has warned Caracas against arresting him or his wife promising that otherwise Maduro’s government will face repercussions.

“[If Maduro’s government] tries to kidnap us […] it will be one of the last mistakes it makes”, he said.

Guaido also called for the Venezuelan people to mobilise against Maduro’s government upon his return to the country.

His warnings have been supported by Washington with US National Security Advisor John Bolton promising that Caracas will face “a strong and significant response from the US and the international community” if Guaido’s safe return to Venezuela is hindered.

Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez commented on the prospects of Guaido’s arrest in an interview with the channel Russia-24 by saying that Venezuela adheres to the rule of law and therefore Guaido’s actions will be analysed by governmental institutions. She added that “appropriate measures” will be taken, based on the results of this analysis.

Guaido left Venezuela for a Latin American tour on 22 February disobeying a travel ban imposed on him by the Venezuelan Supreme Court. According to Venezuelan Supreme Tribunal of Justice, Juan Carlos Valdez, Guaido may face up to 30 years in jail for breaching the travel ban.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has repeatedly slammed Guaido as a “US puppet” and accused Washington of trying to stage a coup in Venezuela.

Guaido proclaimed himself interim president of Venezuela calling for Maduro’s resignation. The US and around 50 other countries have recognised his claims. At the same time, Russia, China, Cuba, Bolivia, Iran, Turkey and a number of other states have refused to recognise him and called to support the legitimate government of constitutionally elected President Nicolas Maduro.

Let me guess… Juan Guaido will end up getting “kidnapped” by his CIA handlers which will force the United States into launching a bombing campaign against the civilians of Venezuela. Meanwhile, U.S. oil corporations will be busy setting up their oil rigs and the bankers will be setting up their new central bank that will financially enslave the people of Venezuela which will become the new Libya of Central America. The pirates of the Caribbean will soon have a safe haven to set up their terrorist camps.

Bah, this can be played “à la” JFK or like in the 2009 movie “The International” : Guaido doesn’t ends kidnapped, but murdered instead, then let’s charge it on some CIA spy which was in the building where the snip came from…

The patsy en caught, publicly confesses the CIA ordered the hit to charge it on Maduro, blahblah, and he himself gets shot.

There must surely be some Delta-Force or Seal-Team wandering around to be charged with it… Yup, this is how propaganda works…

And dead men tell no tales… Dirty scenario, isn’t it? Just learn about history : it’s filled with even more nastier stuff!

I don’t say it’s gonna happen, but it’s very feasible and would easily backfire on the Yanks…
