In August of 2019 the FARC took up arms again and to continue benefitting by the Peace Agreements, they presented it as a “rearming of dissidents” in Venezuelan territory with the backing and protection of the Venezuelan dictatorship operated by Cuba. It happened soon after the meeting of the Forum of Sao Paolo held in Caracas which called for an open conspiracy against Americas’ democracies. Violence in Chile, a coup d’état in Ecuador, guerrilla activation in Paraguay and more. These were publicly celebrated by dictator Maduro and minimized as a “slight Bolivarian breeze” by Diosdado Cabello. Soon after the pandemic flared up.
The people’s ombudsman certifies that in Colombia, between this past 28th of April until the 7th of May, in ten days “4,028 events have been conducted of which 1,931 are massive protests, 797 demonstration marches, 1,701 road blockages, 237 mobilizations, and 4 meetings. . . that have taken place in 689 municipalities and 32 departments of the country”. It also noted that “548 persons have been reported as missing, 26 people have died of which 25 are civilians and one is a policeman” and that “364 civilians and 41 policemen have been wounded during the massive protest rallies throughout the country.”
In the midst of the forum “Defense of Democracy in the Americas”, the president of Ecuador, based upon intelligence reports denounced the “gross interference of dictator Nicolas Maduro in what is now happening, asking that Maduro take his blood-soaked hands out of the Colombian nation”.
Colombia declared the first secretary from the Embassy of Cuba as “persona non-grata” and expelled him from its territory because the Cuban diplomat “was involved in activities incompatible with his duties”. Cuba’s dictatorship protested creating tension aimed to present the conspiracy as of a political nature and protect the presence of the remaining “diplomats” in Colombia.
It has been proved that Cuba’s dictatorship leads and controls the dictatorships of Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Bolivia. Using the diplomatic system, “internationalists” amongst whom the “slaved physicians” stand out and with the countries under its control, Cuba has been able to deploy and direct operational groups. This is nothing new, ever since 1959 and for the following 40 years, it was doing the same thing and it blood-soaked the region with rural and urban guerrillas, terrorism, coups and more.
Reviewing Bolivia’s news media of 2003, we see the Castrochavist model being applied when they detonated the conspiracy in February of that year using a proposed Tax Reform that President Sanchez de Lozada withdrew to resist the coup d’état. The conspiracy to oust the President continued and the new pretext used was the alleged sale of gas to Chile, something false they used to topple the government -exactly what is happening now in Colombia- and forced the President to resign on 17 October. They disguised the coup d’état with the false narrative of the “Gas’ War” that ultimately wrecked democracy and enabled the dictatorship to supplant the Republic and install the narco-state.
In October of 2019, the objective was to oust Ecuador’s President, halt the transition towards democracy that Lenin Moreno was pursuing including the trial for corruption against Rafael Correa who was sentenced to 8 years of jail. The spark was economic measures that raised the price of fossil-fuels, the President withdrew these measures, but it was all the same because the country was blood-soaked by crimes and victims, similar to what is now being reported out of Colombia. The President and the government resisted, expelled Cuban and Venezuelan operators, applied the law and the coup failed.
President Duque can and must save his country and its government, it is his duty. With urgency, he could: Make it clear that this is a coup d’état and an attack to destroy democracy in Colombia. Identify the conspiracy as that from Transnational Organized Crime along with Cuba’s dictatorship as the leader, the Venezuelan dictatorship as the launching platform, and the intervention of Bolivia and Nicaragua’s dictatorships, and highlight the operation of the Forum of Sao Paolo and the FARC, ELN, and Colombia’s Castrochavist presidential candidate, as its members; disclose the operational, logistics, and communications support given to the conspiracy; resist and persist in the existence of the “rule of law”. . .
