Nowadays, people can see the West has double standards. From one hand accuses countries considered as enemies of violating human rights and, on the other hand, remain silent in the face of flagrant abuses against the civilian population. But the silence is Western countries allies´price.

Few cases of double standards have been as grotesque as the Western adulation for the Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Declaration of Lima: a hypocrite group position

declaracion-lima-alta

The Declaration of Lima, signed by Foreign Ministers and Representatives of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay and Peru, on August 8, 2017 to address the situation in Venezuela is by far the worst support for that country.

Although these representatives met with the objective of contributing to the “restoration of democracy” in Venezuela through a “peaceful and negotiated exit”, their hypocrite proposal is more like a biased position in favor of the interests of a political and business minority that an expression of the will of its peoples.

CIA´s director, Mike Pompeo supports a “military solution” to the Venezuelan conflict

U.S. CIA director Mike Pompeo agreed with president Trump not ruling out “a military option” in Venezuela Sunday saying that the South American country could become a risk to the U.S. because “the Cubans are there, the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there.”

During an interview with “Fox News Sunday” this weekend, Pompeo described Venezuela’s situation as a serious risk to the United States.

“It’s a civil war, I understand it’s a terrible situation,” Fox News journalist Chris Wallace said, ”but ultimately why is it our problem?” he asked.

“Look,” Pompeo said, “Venezuela could very easily become a risk for the United States of America. The Cubans are there, the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there. This is something that has a risk of getting to a very, very bad place. So, America needs to take this very seriously.”

While at his golf course in New Jersey Friday, Trump told reporters that the U.S. has a number of solutions to Venezuela’s situation and military force was still an option being considered.
