Venezuela update: de blackout en de sabotage-vraag

Bij deze een haastige update over de toestand in Venezuela. Nadat “de Amerikaanse trekpop” Guaido de grens niet over kwam met zijn Amerikaanse “humanitaire hulp”, leek de VS even zonder verdere opties voor “regime change”. Het leger staat achter Maduro en de bevolking van zowel Venezuela als de VS zit bepaald niet te wachten op een Amerikaanse militaire interventie. Op donderdag 7 maart kreeg Caracas een totale uitval van de elektriciteit. Geen metro, geen stoplichten, geen elektriciteit in de talloze winkels en restaurants. Uiteraard leidt dat tot chaos. Eenmaal veilig thuis is er geen licht, geen warmte of koeling, geen wasmachine en ga zo maar door. De blackout was landelijk en het kostte dagen om de elektriciteit te herstellen. Volgens Maduro is er sprake van sabotage. Opvallend is zeker dat Marco Rubio, de gouverneur van Miami, op donderdag al na 3 minuten twitterde over die blackout.

Back to square one? Washington now says ‘no timeline’ for regime change in Venezuela (VIDEO)

Published time: 9 Mar, 2019 09:22 Edited time: 10 Mar, 2019 09:39

After weeks of insinuating that Nicolas Maduro’s ouster was imminent, Washington now insists that there’s “no timeline” for regime change in Venezuela. RT looks at how the US’ best laid plans haven’t panned out.

When Vice President Mike Pence released a video statement in January pledging full US support for Juan Guaido’s claim to the Venezuelan presidency, many assumed that an operation to install the opposition leader in Caracas was just around the corner. But more than a month later, and with Maduro still firmly in power, Washington seems to be out of ideas: Not only has the US failed to deliver its “humanitarian aid” to Venezuela, but Washington’s allies have unanimously ruled out military action.

Venezuela crisis: Seems something is broken in the US regime-change train

Presstitutes Turn Blind Eye to UN Report on Venezuela

Washington and the Convict Appointed to Overthrow Venezuela Continue the Lies

By Paul Craig Roberts

March 10, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –

Don’t you think something is fishy when the presstitutes orchestrate a fake news “humanitarian crisis” in Venezuela, but totally ignore the real humanitarian crises in Yemen and Gaza?

Don’t you think something is really very rotten when the expert, Alfred Maurice de Zayas, sent by the UN to Venezuela to evaluate the situation finds no interest by any Western media or any Western government in his report?

Don’t you think it is a bit much for Washington to steal $21 billion of Venezuela’s money, impose sanctions in an effort to destabilize the country and to drive the Venezuelan government to its knees, blame Venezuelan socialism (essentially nationalization of the oil company) for bringing “starvation to the people,” and offer a measly $21 million in “humanitarian aid.”

US Stealth War on Venezuela

By Finian Cunningham

March 10, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –

As Venezuela’s nationwide crippling power outage goes into days, rather than hours, the suspicion grows that the South American country has been hit with a mass attack by the United States.

When US President Donald Trump and other senior White House officials earlier bragged that “all options are on the table” for Washington’s regime change objective in Venezuela, it has to be assumed now that one of those options included a devastating cyber sabotage of the country’s power infrastructure.

For its part, the government of President Nicolas Maduro is convinced that the US is waging an “electrical war” and is behind the latest power outages. Washington and its anointed Venezuelan opposition figure Juan Guaido claim that the disruption is the result of “incompetent management” of the country by Maduro’s socialist government.

Venezuela’s 31 million population is reportedly used to the inconvenience of frequent power cuts. The country’s economic turmoil over recent years due to declining revenues for its oil exports as well as — perhaps the main factor — US sanctions, has hampered normal administration, thus leading to recurring power outages and other consumer shortages.

However, the scale of the latest blackouts indicate an unprecedented damage to the country’s power infrastructure.

Maduro’s Rebounding Support – Public Convinced that Electricity Black-Outs are Acts of U.S Terrorism, Sabotage

In parallel with the continuing large-scale disruption of the Venezuelan electricity industry, supporters of the current government and the opposition of the country hold numerous rallies. According to local observers, the political crisis in the Bolivarian Republic has all the signs of a protracted social conflict. The question is whether the scale of social conflict will remain manageable, and whether the authorities, led by Maduro, will continue to maintain the support of the majority of the citizens, which he presently enjoys.

That the recent acts of terrorism and/or sabotage of Venezuela’s electric grid were viewed as acts of foreign aggression, this has galvanized the public and apparently pushed undecided sections of the populace over to the pro-government side. This is according to FRN’s sources on the ground. The underlying dynamic revealed by these sources was previously demonstrated in the case of Syria. Although on a tremendously greater scale, once the violence in Syria was demonstrably foreign or foreign instigated in nature, Syrians increasingly rallied behind their present-existing civilian government, which was viewed as a guarantor of stability.

Likewise, the authorities, led by President Nicholas Maduro, linked their actions with the struggle of the Venezuelan people against “American imperialism”, led by the United States.

Meanwhile, as sources of the Atlanticist, Pro-American Associated Press agency in the South American country note, large-scale power outages “increased tensions between groups within the Venezuelan government itself, who accused each other of being responsible for the collapse of the power grid.”

    Volgens Jim Stone is de VS met Stuxnet de oorzaak van de black out:

    Here is the key to what happened in Venezuela:
    Someone from either American or Israeli DOD got into the PLC controllers on the twelve gigawatt hydroelectric Guri dam. They attacked the systems that regulated water flow through the valves on the dam that send the water to the turbines. This is precisely the type of attack Stuxnet is supposed to be made for. They opened the valves all the way. They (or whatever virus they planted, probably Stuxnet) then told the engineers, via the readouts, that the water flows and turbine speeds were normal. With an enormous amount of pressure from the dam, the turbines managed to push ahead of phase on the rest of Venezuela’s grid, got into an enormous tug-of-war with power stations elsewhere (after viruses also turned the protection off) and blew everything up, tripping a nationwide blackout with long term severe damage.

    We just got to see what Stuxnet could do to the world’s third largest power plant. Several Venezuelans managed to tweet out that the turbines at Guri went over frequency, those tweets have now been expunged. Only willful sabotage could have done that.

    It is virtually assured America did this, to a point where there is no plausible deniability especially after Pompeo’s tweet, see the main report in the window below.

    Most likely, trolls are going to say Venezuela’s grid was crap. That’s a lie, I looked into this, and it was in fact among the most modern grids in the world, RIPE for virus attacks, Guri is predominantly a 2010 dated facility after upgrades, that was initially put online in the late 80’s (which by itself would not be old by power generating standards). There’s nothing of significance in the U.S. that new and that updated. The stories about Venezuela having crap are bold faced lies fronted for propaganda.

    Russia To Defend Its Venezuela Oil Assets In ‘Toughest Way Possible’

    While the global superpowers spat over the handling of the crisis in Venezuela, the Latin American country’s oil industry has been hit hard by the US sanctions against it and its state oil firm PDVSA. Venezuela struggles to find buyers for its oil, after the sanctions essentially ban exports to what was its largest market until recently, the US, as well as imports from the US of naphtha, which the country uses to dilute its thick heavy oil to make it flow.

    Russia’s Rosneft is reportedly coming to the rescue with shipments of naphtha to Venezuela to help it make its heavy oil suitable for processing and exports. Two Rosneft tankers will be sending 1 million barrels of heavy naphtha to Venezuela in the next few weeks, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing shipping reports and a source with knowledge of the plans. These naphtha shipments could bring some immediate relief, but they would be lower than Venezuela’s typical monthly heavy naphtha imports of 2-3 million barrels, according to Bloomberg.

    “Lights Out!” Did Trump and His Neocons Recycle Bush-Era Plan to Knock Out Venezuela’s Power Grid?

    Even as the Venezuelan government blamed the recent power outage on U.S.-led “sabotage,” the U.S. has long had a plan on the books for targeting the civilian power grid of adversarial nations.

    By Whitney Webb

    March 11, 2019 “Information Clearing House” –

    For nearly four days, much of Venezuela has been without power, bringing the country’s embattled economy to a near standstill. Though power is now returning, the outage saw U.S. officials and politicians blame the Venezuelan government for the crisis while officials in Caracas accused the U.S. of conducting “sabotage” and launching cyberattacks that targeted its civilian power grid as well as of employing saboteurs within Venezuela.

    Although many mainstream media outlets have echoed the official U.S. government response, some journalists have strayed from the pack. One notable example is Kalev Leetaru, who wrote at Forbes that “the United States remotely interfering with its [Venezuela’s] power grid is actually quite realistic.”

    Leetaru also noted that “timing such an outage to occur at a moment of societal upheaval in a way that delegitimizes the current government, exactly as a government-in-waiting has presented itself as a ready alternative, is actually one of the tactics” he had previously explored in a 2015 article detailing U.S. government hybrid warfare tactics “to weaken an adversary prior to conventional invasion or to forcibly and deniably effect a transition in a foreign government.”

    Another reason Nitro Zeus is notable, particularly in light of U.S. efforts to meddle in Venezuela, is the motive for its creation. Indeed, although Nitro Zeus became the “enormous, and enormously complex” program detailed by the Times during the Obama administration, work on the program had actually begun during the George W. Bush administration. According to a report in the Daily Beast, Bush had considered Nitro Zeus “a necessary tactical alternative after the Iraq War sabotaged his chances of starting another Middle East invasion.” In other words, after the Iraq War debacle made it more difficult for the U.S. to launch unilateral military interventions, the Bush administration opted to develop “non-kinetic” military tools that would avoid angering the U.S. public and U.S. allies abroad.

    There are more than a few indications that many of the more aggressive “contingency plans” have moved to the top of the toolbox under the Trump administration. For instance, key former Bush officials that are now in the Trump administration, particularly John Bolton and Elliot Abrams, are known for their aggressive stances and willingness to promote extreme policies targeting adversaries, even those policies that harm or kill scores of innocent civilians. Thus, voices like those in the Obama State Department and National Security Council, who had warned of the potential adverse effects on civilians that a Nitro Zeus blackout could cause, are unlikely to influence the likes of Bolton and Abrams — who have an outsized role in creating the administration’s Venezuela policy.

    With Bush-era warmongers now dominating Trump’s Venezuela policy, it seems increasingly likely that efforts to revive the Bush/Obama-era Nitro Zeus program have taken place. Indeed, with such an enormous and complex program already on the books and the likely existence of spin-off programs that have developed over the past decade, it was likely the easiest route for another “aggressive” U.S.-backed measure targeting the Venezuelan government.

    Trump Regime Electricity War in Venezuela More Serious than First Believed
    By Stephen Lendman
    Global Research, March 11, 2019

    What’s happening in Venezuela is similar to infecting Iran’s Bushehr and Natanz nuclear power facilities with a Stuxnet malware computer virus in 2010, a likely joint US/Israeli intelligence operation. Edward Snowden blamed them for what happened.

    Maduro’s government will need to marshal considerable technical expertise to fully resolve things – the type cybersecurity/anti-virus/security software skills Russia-based multinational firm Kaspersky Lab can provide.

    It can also identify the attack’s source and lay blame where it belongs – the US most likely responsible. It clearly has motive, opportunity and expertise – waging war on Venezuela by other means to topple its government and gain another imperial trophy.

    If the malware infection is widespread, continued outages may happen until the problem is fully resolved.

    Resolution may take months, disruption in the country persisting, clearly the motive behind the attack.

    What’s Behind US-Backed Electricity Blackout in Venezuela

    The sabotage was intended to leave Venezuela without light for several days, according to Rodriguez. He said that Marco Rubio, U.S. Republican Senator from Florida, who has been actively seeking to destabilize the Bolivarian government, is one of the promoters of the attack.

    According to the Venezuelan communication minister, U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo and opposition deputy Juan Guaido were also implicated in the attack.

    “The electric war announced and directed by U.S. imperialism against our people will be defeated,” President Maduro posted on his Twitter account and added “nothing and no one will be able to defeat the people of Bolivar and Chavez. Maximum unity of the patriots!”.

    Trump Admin Wants $500M to Fund Its Intervention in Venezuela

    Trump is asking Congress to allow the Department of State to reserve US$500 million to carry out actions in Venezuela.

    U.S. President Donald Trump asked Monday Congress to cut aid to Latin America but allow the U.S. Department of State to use US$500 million to fund its interventionist policies against the government of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela which the Trump administration refers to as “democratic transition”.

    If FY20 is approved by Congress, the State Department’s Latin America office would suffer a cut of almost 27 percent, since it now has US$158 million and Trump has requested it receives only US$116 million next year.

    On the other hand, the U.S. government also announced late Monday that it will withdraw the diplomatic staff that still remains in its Caracas embassy, given that its presence hinders Washington’s strategy.

    “The U.S. will withdraw all remaining personnel from [the U.S. embassy in Venezuela] this week,” U.S. Secretary of State said through his Twitter account and added that “this decision reflects the deteriorating situation in Venezuela as well as the conclusion that the presence of U.S. diplomatic staff at the embassy has become a constraint on U.S. policy.”

    The US-funded CANVAS organization that trained Juan Guaido and his allies produced a 2010 memo on exploiting electricity outages and urged the opposition “to take advantage of the situation…towards their needs”

    By Max Blumenthal

    A September 2010 memo by a US-funded soft power organization that helped train Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaido and his allies identifies the potential collapse of the country’s electrical sector as “a watershed event” that “would likely have the impact of galvanizing public unrest in a way that no opposition group could ever hope to generate.”

    The memo has special relevance today as Guaido moves to exploit nationwide blackouts caused by a major failure at the Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Plant at Guri dam – a crisis that Venezuela’s government blames on US sabotage.

    Venezuela’s Top Prosecutor Probes Juan Guaido over Electric Grid Attack

    Venezuela’s Attorney General Tareck William Saab said that his Venezuelan Public Ministry has started an investigation against Juan Guaido, the lawmaker of the country’s National Assembly, which has been in contempt since 2016, over his alleged participation in the recent sabotage to the electric grid system in Venezuela.

    The measure, which was reported to the Supreme Court of Justice, is meant to investigate whether the opposition lawmaker has acted as the mastermind behind the electric outage in the country that began last Thursday.

    Venezuelans Growing Desperate as Blackout Hits Country

    Gepubliceerd op 12 mrt. 2019
    THE RUNDOWN | With a blackout striking and an economic crisis ongoing, Venezuelans are becoming more and more desperate, going as far as to collect water from a contaminated river in the capital to survive. Venezuela-based journalist Juan Lamas discusses with hosts Calev Ben-David and Nurit Ben.


    The US special envoy on the crisis in Venezuela said Tuesday that Washington would soon impose ‘very significant additional sanctions’ on financial institutions doing business with President Nicolas Maduro’s government.

    Elliott Abrams also told reporters that “additional visa revocations” targeting Venezuelan officials would be issued.

    The new measures will be announced ‘very soon’, possibly as early as Tuesday, he said.

    The United States, which has moved to pull all of its remaining staff from the country, has already imposed sanctions designed to choke off Venezuelan oil sales, the lifeblood of the leftist government in Caracas.

    It has targeted a growing list of individuals and companies linked to the Maduro government, including state oil company PDVSA.

    Washington is one of more than 50 countries to have recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as acting president of the country, and is backing his efforts to push Maduro from power.

    Venezuela’s state prosecutor, Tarek William Saab, told reporters he would place Guaido under investigation for ‘his alleged involvement in the sabotage of the Venezuelan electricity system,’ which has been hit by a devastating multi-day blackout.

    ‘It’s a threat against interim president Guaido,’ said Abrams in response, adding: ‘That report is a real concern’.

      We hebben die club in 2008 al eens licht getoucheerd. Otpor aka Verzet. Een Servisch vehikel dat jongeren van all over the globe leerde hoe je heel vreedzaam democratieboompjes in je land moest planten en bewateren. Otpor werd bij dit nobele streven gesponsord door Amerikaanse instituten als National Endowment for Democracy (NED), International Republican Institute en USAID. En dan weet je meteen om wat voor boompje het ging. Mocht u plotseling bevangen worden door een acute aanval van nieuwsgierigheid dan kan u hier terecht om die aanval te pareren. Na in 2004 een vergeefse poging te hebben ondernomen om een warme zetel in de Servische landdag te veroveren voer Otpor ten hemel. Maar, dat heb je met bomen, ze dragen zaadjes en in dit geval kwam er eentje goed terecht. Otpor kreeg in 2005 een postuum kind en de kwekers noemden het CANVAS. En waarheen waaiden op hun beurt die oh zo democratische canvaszaadjes? Naar Venezuela. Een wonder? Niet echt. Want een van de gretige leerlingen bij Otpor was de momenteel als surrogaat president van Venezuela door de wereld stappende Juan Guaido. Ondersteund door hetzelfde soort Amerikaanse kutkevers die zo vreedzaam hun Wallstreet-democratie brachten in Vietnam, Indonesië, Chili, Grenada, Panama, Afghanistan, Irak, Libië en Syrië. Om eens wat duistere steegjes op te noemen. Oké. Die pogingen zijn niet overal met de hoofdprijs schoot gegaan, maar waar gehakt wordt is het woensdag. Maakt voor de lenteboeren uit het binnenkort aan de zuidas afgesloten land of the free overigens geen flaus aus. Ze gaan gewoon verder op het ingeslagen modderpad. Dit keer om in Venezuela het licht uit te doen. Letterlijk zelfs. Of dat deel uitmaakt van de leerstof die bij Otpor cq. CANVAS op het bord werd/wordt gekrast weten we niet. Wij zijn nooit uitgenodigd voor een cursus in Belgrado. Maar zeg niet dat het niet kan. Per slot is de stroom afsluiten een vreedzaam gebeuren nietwaar. En naar wij aannemen dan ook volledig gesteund door schuifdeurpianist Rutte en de Enkhuizense bread and breakfastondernemer Blok. Oh? Was bij u ook al geïmpregneerd dat die stroomuitval aan dat sullig onderhouden Bolivaarse electriciteitsnet lag? Nou, lees dan dit eens even op uw gemakkie door en we weten zeker dat u bij u in ieder geval het licht weer brandt. Zonder extra kosten. Stay tuned (JP).

    Rosneft under fire over Venezuelan crude purchases

    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo targeted Rosneft earlier this week for defying US sanctions on Venezuela, but major shareholder BP has escaped without a warning.

    “I haven’t read it, I haven’t heard it, so I really wouldn’t be able to comment,” BP CEO Bob Dudley said on the sidelines of CERAWeek. “I did not actually hear about that.”

    Earlier this week, Mike Pompeo accused Rosneft of defying US sanctions against Caracas by continuing to buy crude oil from PDVSA, which is its joint venture partner in a local operation.

    Russian pranksters posing as Swiss president call Guaido, talk freezing Maduro’s ‘crime monies’

    While the prank was already a success, Guaido himself apparently added more hilarity to it, bragging to the press about getting in touch with the ‘Swiss president’ and stating that he was “doing everything possible to protect these assets that belong to the republic.” Switzerland, however, swiftly rebuked Guaido’s claims, stating – obviously – that “there was no telephone contact between Mr. Guaido and President Maurer.”

    The official statement by the real Swiss government, however, did not stop the prankster duo, who then again contacted Abrams and ‘Ambassador’ Vecchio, complaining about Guaido not being able to keep the “talks” private.
