Britain’s navy and marines are conducting military exercises close to Venezuela. The deployment comes as the U.S. is increasing its hostile military activities in the region, directed specifically against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its resistance to U.S. dictate. The new commander of Southern Command, Admiral Craig Faller visited the Caribbean island of Curaçao in the Dutch Antilles, February 13-14, within 50 miles of the Venezuelan coast, following discussions with the Joint Military Staff of Brazil on February 12. The Trump administration has stepped up threats to use military intervention against Venezuela as part of its blackmail against the Venezuelan people and world opinion.

It is no accident that the states of the European Union abstained on the recent UN Anti Nazi resolution adopted by the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly November 21, 2014. It called for ‘Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.’ The abstention by the EU states gave the green light directly to the fascists to go into action.
