By US Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, Commander, US Southern Command

MIAMI (USA) 

Last May, Argentinian journalist Stella Calloni revealed a document from Admiral Kurt Tidd, Commander in Chief of SouthCom, exposing military operations aimed at Venezuela. A second penetration was simultaneously implemented in Nicaragua, and a third, running for the last half century, against Cuba. The entire 11-page text is reproduced below. The admiral twice last year, in February and November, visited two areas in Colombia, the coca growing areas of south Colombia, and along the border with Venezuela, where the Colombian military has its largest concentrations of troops.

In defence of peace in Colombia

Declaration by the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs

On January 17, a car bomb attack occurred at the General Francisco de Paula Santander Police Cadet School, causing the loss of 21 human lives and 68 injuries.

Given this situation, the President of the Councils of State and Ministers, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, sent a message to the President of the Republic of Colombia, Iván Duque Márquez, expressing our condolences to the government and people of Colombia, in particular to the families of victims of the attack, and reaffirming that Cuba rejects and condemns terrorist acts, methods, and practices in all their forms and expressions. Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla issued a similar message via his official Twitter account, and a press note was released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Continue reading

Cuban ambassador questions Canada’s decision to reduce staff at its embassy in Havana

Cuba understands the obligations of the government of Canada to protect its diplomatic personnel posted anywhere in the world and to try to find answers to the health symptoms reported in Cuba, however, it considers that Canada’s decision made public today is incomprehensible.

Cutting Canad’s staff at its Embassy in Cuba and adjusting the mission’s programs are actions that do not help find answers to the health symptoms reported by Canadian diplomats, and which will have an impact on the relations. Continue reading

US media disinforms to promote coup in Venezuela

fp-venezuela-coup(New York) – We like to think we have an adversarial media—one that will stand up, in particular, to Donald Trump. The media assured us that they would perform their crucial democratic role in holding this dangerous new president and commander-in-chief accountable at every turn. This struck a chord with the public; in the wake of Trump’s victory in 2016, the New York Times added over a quarter-million digital subscribers in a matter of weeks. “Democracy,” after all, “Dies in Darkness,” as the Washington Post tells us on every webpage.

Venezuelan 2018 presidential elections: Canadian delegation observations

Report of independent Canadian delegation, which participated in elections monitoring for the May 20, 2018 Presidential elections in Venezuela, was composed of members of Unifor, the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, The United Church, Common Frontiers and Rabble.ca.

This extensive report does overlook one feature: Canada deliberately violated the Vienna Convention concerning consular relations by forbidding the Venezuelan embassy in Ottawa to organise voting facilities in its consulates in this country, as it had with the presidential elections in Syria on June 3, 2014. Readers are invited to judge for themselves the allegation of the Trudeau government that the election was “illegal” and “fraudulent.”

Statements on the developments in Venezuela

A major theme of the CBC and the monopoly media is that the Maduro government is “isolated.” On January 24 CBC showed a graphic map of the Americas to this effect, highlighting the US and Brazil and leaving out the states of the Caribbean, as if they do not matter. These manoeuvres came after the little-known, US-educated Juan Guaidó, president of a National Assembly in contempt, declared himself interim president of Venezuela, and was immediately recognized as such by the U.S., Canada and its allies.

The CBC is not telling the truth about the developments in Venezuela. The Maduro government continues to enjoy the support of the international community, with significant countries such as Russia and China reiterating its legitimacy and condemning any foreign interference. Continue reading
