How Much of Venezuela's Crisis is Really Maduro's Fault?
There are several factors for Venezuela's economic crisis, but you wouldn't know it by listening to U.S. leaders or following corporate media, writes Steve Ellner.

Two days ago, the New York Times carried an article by Times' journalist Thomas Erdbrink entitled, "For Iran, a Grand Occasion to Bash the U.S.," which was about Iran's celebration of the 40th anniversary of its revolution in 1979. The article included the following sentence, "And like some evil doppelgänger, the United States was omnipresent, despite having broken all ties with Iran in 1981."

Trump's Iran summit shows just how far he is from the rest of the west
Does Mike Pompeo realise what a foolish figure he cuts as he shambles around Europe, spouting risible tosh about Donald Trump's commitment to a "new liberal order" and America as "force for good" in the Middle East? It seems he does not. Pompeo is a former soldier, Tea Party Republican, hawkish CIA chief and enthusiastic torture advocate who complained in 2013 that Guantanamo Bay inmates on hunger strike had "put on weight". Self-awareness is not really his thing.

Venezuela - Trump's Coup Plan Has Big Flaws
While U.S. coup plotting against Venezuela goes back to at least 1998 when the deceased President Chavez won his first election, the actual planning for this coup attempt was only done during the last two month.

And here's this example, just for your information, of a Twitter account talking about how much fun she's having in Paris and then a few days later claiming she's in Venezuela waiting in "5+ hour queues to buy a loaf of bread." Be skeptical of what strangers on social media tell you about what's happening inside a nation that's been targeted by the empire, please.
