Will US Dark Forces Kill Guaido to Blame Maduro?
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Eliminating him, if planned, would be the latest in a long line of false flags, a US specialty for launching wars and other hostile actions to achieve imperial aims. More on this below.
Guaido was chosen for the role he's playing because firebrand coup plotter Leopoldo Lopez is unavailable — convicted of inciting violence and related crimes.
Imprisoned, then released to house arrest for alleged health reasons, he violated mandated terms by appearing in public with Guaido during last Tuesday's fiasco coup plot — a classic snafu (situation normal all f..cked up) scheme likely intended to fail, not succeed.
Spain gave Lopez safe haven in its Caracas embassy to avoid capture and re-imprisonment, a warrant issued for his arrest. He's unavailable to perform imperial services, Guaido a pathetic substitute.
