Jag anklagar Venezuelas regim för Brott Mot Mänskligheten

Regimen i Venezuela sprider hat och uppmanar till mord på politiska motståndare, och deras hantlangare inom polis, nationalgarde och mördargängen “colectivos” exekverar. Detta betyder att det handlar om brott mot mänskligheten, som visas i denna video. VARNING! Videon innehåller scener från ett mord på en ung man. Han skjuts i huvudet från nära håll så att halva kraniet försvinner och hjärninnehåll och blod stänker över marken. Dessa två videos från mordet publicerades på två olika internetsajter den 25 februari 2015, och den som spred videon till höger arresterades när han kom till Miami flygplats för 10 dagar sedan. Det var en polis från Venezuelas motsvarighet till SÄPO.

I accuse the Venezuelan regime of Crimes Against Humanity

I accuse the Venezuelan dictatorship under Nicolás Maduro of Crimes Against Humanity, including the crimes of murder, persecution, and torture of dissidents. To substantiate the accusation I’ve made this video with clips from two sources: Words spoken by Roy Chaderton, the Venezuelan ambassador to the OAS, expressing hatred for dissidents (he uses the word “squalid” as is customary by the regime), talking about shooting the dissidents in the head, and saying that the dissidents’ heads are empty. The second video (actually two from different angles) show how regime thugs (so-called “colectivos”) execute a young unidentified man by shooting him in the head, possibly a dissident (this was posted on Feb 25, at a time when about a dozen dissidents were executed by being shot in the head by the police, national guard, and ‘colectivos’). The video is extremely graphic as it shows the head being blown off.

Prima facie evidence of Crimes Against Humanity

For the record, I use the word “dissident” here as a neutral term for those who express dissent with the regime. They are, however, of two different kinds: The “opposition,” who still believes that the only way to get out from under this criminal regime that controls all aspects of the state and who has repeated ad nauseam that they will “never” cede power to the opposition, is by defeating them in elections, even though they are aware that the elections are completely fraudulent. And secondly, the “resistance,” who reject the idea of participating in elections that are un-winnable, against a tyranny that openly says it would rather start a civil war than cede power, and instead advocate for the use of the method of non-violent resistance as the best strategy for defeating this rule of horror. The dozen or so ‘dissidents’ who have been murdered by head-shots the last few weeks have been from the resistance, not from the opposition. For Spanish-speakers this is a very enlightening debate between the resistance and the opposition, recorded March 10: Debate Resistencia – Oposición.

Budkaveln har gått i Venezuela

Vid midnatt mellan lördag och söndag går tidsfristen ut för att Venezuelas agerande president Maduro och hans anhang av knarksmugglare och terrorister fredligt skall lämna ifrån sig makten. Ingen tror att de gör det. Anbudet att avgå frivilligt kommer från den pensionerade generalen Ángel Omar Vivas Perdomo, i en video daterad 16 januari 2015 (sammanfattning). In en senare video gav han en barsk uppmaning till militärerna att välja sida (inklippt i denna video).

I andra nyheter har chefen för livvakten för riksdagens talman Diosdado Cabello hoppat av till USA, och avslöjat att Cabello är chefen för den militära kokainsmugglingen i Venezuela, “narco soles”. Det betyder att han troligen hanterar mer än hälften av all världens kokainsmuggling. Och ekonomin håller på att kollapsa, det finns inte tillräcklig inhemsk matproduktion efter Chávez många konfiskationer, och ingen hårdvaluta med vilken man kan importera mat. Därför har man nu talat om att med tvång skicka ut arbetare och studenter på landsbygden för att odla mat – något som känns igen från andra röda terrorstater, som de röda kmerernas Kambodja.

Men åter till general Ángel Vivas. Vad händer efter att tidsfristen gått ut? Finns det kraft bakom orden? General Vivas uttalar sig som ledare för RAV, den Anticastrokommunistiska Motståndsrörelsen i Venezuela. Bildandet av RAV offentliggjordes i presskonferensen den 15 december, men hittills har ingenting gjorts i dess namn så det finns många som tvivlar på att den ens existerar. Men existerar gör den. Det vet jag, eftersom jag i åratal varit med om att organisera det venezolanska motståndet mot den av Kuba kontrollerade knark- och terrordiktaturen.

Den 9 februari 2011 bildades Operación Libertad Venezuela (OLV) på mitt förslag, och en av de 10 ursprungliga medlemmarna var general Vivas. Syftet var att agera som paraply och ena de många grupper som finns. Problemet i Venezuela är protagonismen: Alla vill ha sin egen grupp, och ingen vill vara under någon annan. Därför var en regel att ingen fick avslöja sin tillhörighet till OLV, så att det inte skulle vara synligt för utomstående hur man samverkade bakom draperiet. Den som bröt mot den regeln blev utesluten. Detta fick dock överges efter ett par år då en aktivitet skulle genomföras som krävde att OLV hade språkrör. Min egen inblandning blev avslöjad av tjallare, och efter att jag blivit skuggad på motorvägen i Miami av vad som man måste anta vara en kubansk agent, så har jag funnit för gott att prata offentligt.

Logga för OLV
OLVs logga kombinerar symbolerna för fred och rättsskipning, därför att utan lag ingen fred.

Varje regim upprätthålls av stöttepelare, och i detta fallet var stödet att regimen uppfattades som en demokrati. Det har dock varit en skenvalsdemokrati sedan Chávez kom till makten. Det viktigaste som OLV gjort var en valvaka vid presidentvalet den 14 april 2013, sänd via internet. OLV, genom sitt språkrör Ana Mercedes Diaz, före detta den näst högsta chefen för landets valmyndighet tills hon vägrade acceptera ett tjuvknep år 2003 (med vilje feltryckta blanketter för att kunna kasta folkets petition i papperskorgen), kunde då utropa oppositionskandidaten Capriles som segrare och fick folket att återvända till vallokalerna och därmed i stor utsträckning förhindra valfusket. Capriles hade därför inte mycket annat val än att vägra godta sin “förlust”. Därmed var lögnen att det inte förekommer valfusk sönderstucken för gott. Under två dagar protesterade folket på gatorna med flera döda, varefter Capriles manade folk att gå hem.

Nästa utmaning var att avslöja att oppositionen spelar under täcket med regimen, och hjälpte regimen att upprätthålla lögnen att det inte förekom valfusk. Vid flera tillfällen under de kommande månaderna agerade oppositionen (MUD) ojuste för att sabotera protester mot valfusket. Det handlade om protester där man krävde att Capriles skulle insättas som president därför att han egentligen vann, men Capriles egna partikamrater saboterade protesterna. Vid det andra tillfället fick vi dock kopior av ett stort antal av de SMS som de skickat, och genom vårt andra språkrör, sångerskan och skådespelerskan María Conchita Alonso, kunde vi få ut detta i TV. Därmed var två av de tre pelarna störtade.

Under 2014 fortsatte protesterna, men den 12 februari blev avgörande. Då dödades 3 personer efter ett fredligt demonstrationståg i Caracas: en ledare för en beväpnad regimvänlig grupp (så kallade kollektiv; de har samma funktion som SA hade i Nazityskland), och två av demonstranterna. Den förste av dessa, Bassil Dacosta, fick en kula i huvudet, och bars därifrån av Roberto Redman, vilken för övrigt deltagit i OLVs aktiviteter året innan. Några timmar senare sköts Redman ihjäl, som det verkar av nämnda kollektiv. Ledaren för kollektivet och Bassil sköts ihjäl av polis.

Fem dagar senare blev 17-årige José Mendez med vett och vilje överkörd av en regimanhängare då han satt på gatan i en protest anordnad av OLV i Carúpano, delstaten Sucre (video). Dagen efter blev ett demonstrationståg i Valencia, delstaten Carabobo, överfallet av pistolmän från det socialistiska regeringspartiet PSUV, och Genesis Carmona, Miss Turismo Carabobo, dog av en kula i huvudet (video). Den lokala samordnaren för OLV fick gömma sig i en gränd från pistolmän som gick att leta efter folk att skjuta ihjäl. Gömd bakom en lår såg hon pistolmannen passera bara 2 meter från henne. Dagen efter blev den en ren eldstrid i Valencia mellan nationalgardet och moståndsrörelsen, med en död soldat som resultat. Det har varit ett flertal eldstrider och ett flertal döda på regimsidan av kulor, men inget av detta har rapporterats korrekt av media. Och så fortsatte det, med mord, våld, anfall på folks bostäder (video). Tills MUD satte sig att inleda en “dialog” med diktaturen. Vilket bara bidrog till att folk ytterligare tappade förtroendet för MUD, eftersom regimen naturligtvis inte backade en millimeter på någon enda punkt.

Under det relativa lugn som följde under flera månader har motståndsrörelsen förberett sig. De oinsatta har trott att motståndsviljan varit knäckt, men det är tvärtom: Det har varit en ständig kamp att övertyga dem om att vänta och bida sin tid, för att kunna gå ut med kraft, samlade. Generalens utspel är inledningen till detta. Bakom RAV står en enad, samlad, förberedd motståndsrörelse i hela landet. Hans ord är inte tomma, och jag vet det, för jag har gjort en hel del av fotarbetet i att föra samman grupperna, och jag står i direkt kontakt med ledarna för motståndsrörelsen. Däremot känner jag inte till deras planer, och jag känner heller inget behov av att veta vad de tänker göra. Det viktiga är att deras kamp är legitim under landets grundlag och internationell lag. Därom råder ingen tvekan som jag ser det. Det är inte bara en rätt utan en skyldighet att agera mot den regimen, och med det våld som nöden kräver och som självförsvar och krigets lagar tillåter. Detta handlar om liv och död, att förhindra ett folkmord.

Holodomor in Venezuela?

Are we facing a Holodomor in Venezuela, genocide by hunger? The food supply is now critical, many are simply unable to find any food whatsoever. However, the regime is not addressing this situation by providing food. Rather, they are militarizing the country, including the shops. Many stores are now completely empty (see video at end). We have seen in recent days lines to grocery stores forming the evening before, and some claim to have stood days in line just to get in, only to find empty shelves. Yesterday a video came out of how a group of young men were arrested within seconds for protesting at a food line, and an elderly man was taken into custody for just wearing a sign with government-critical words.

The behavior of Maduro, a puppet of Castro, suggests that the food shortage is intentional. Everything indicates that they intend to repeat the method that Stalin used in Ukraine to subdue their rebellion in the early 1930’s: Starve them to death.

The regime’s only response so far has been to increase the brutality in the repression against those who protest against the lack of food. Yesterday it was leaked that the military commander of Maduro (and thus Castro), Padrino Lopez, allegedly has given orders to not allow any protest at the food lines, but to disappear those who protest in any way, shape or form against the regime.

Operación Libertad Venezuela (OLV) is making a poll on Facebook right now, and the preliminary results are that about one in three at present is hungry due to the food shortage, and says that there is no food to be found where they live. Almost all the respondents say that they have food for at least 2 days in the house, but that it is hard or impossible to find food to buy.

DECLARACION DE GENERAL ÁNGEL VIVAS

General Angel Vivas Perdomo
General Angel Vivas Perdomo

Caracas, lunes 15 de Diciembre de 2014.

Apreciados amigos periodistas y demás invitados a este acto:

Pretendo por su intermedio, dirigirme a Venezuela y el mundo entero, en los términos contenidos en la siguiente declaración:

No los he convocado para hablar sobre ninguno de los terribles problemas que sufrimos los venezolanos en estos momentos de tragedia nacional y que todos padecemos, solo me referiré al origen de ellos, el cual, sin duda alguna, está en los planes de infiltración, control y dominación que la dictadura terrorista y narcotraficante cubana, ha venido desarrollando en contra de Venezuela en los últimos 55 años, y que debido a infinidad de errores, omisiones y traiciones cometidas por quienes nos han gobernado, logró implantar desde hace tiempo dentro del poder, a un grupo de criminales que le sirven fielmente y que desde diciembre de 2012 está encabezado por un individuo, presuntamente de nacionalidad colombiana, que responde al nombre de Nicolás Maduro Moros.

De la mano de estos bandidos poco a poco hemos ido perdiendo la República, cediendo nuestra soberanía y poniendo en riesgo nuestra integridad territorial mientras los derechos humanos de los venezolanos son violados y nuestra dignidad nacional es humillada diariamente. Hoy en día los Poderes Públicos Nacionales son solo una ilusión en lejanía pues en la realidad todos están concentrados en el Poder Ejecutivo siendo los deseos e intereses de los sanguinarios ancianos Castro en Cuba la voluntad de eso que algunos todavía insisten en llamar “gobierno”. De la mano de estos malhechores hemos transitado mansamente por las fases de infiltración y control, y desde principios del presente año hemos estado transitando por la fase de dominación total la cual está siendo aplicada por la fuerza, plomo limpio va contra el que sale a la calle a ejercer su legítimo derecho a protestar y la cárcel espera al que no esté de acuerdo con el “pensamiento único” del castrocomunismo. Cualquier excusa será usada para aplicarla en este proceso de sumisión total de todos los venezolanos, como lo es por ejemplo, la baja en los precios del petróleo. Esa puede ser la excusa esperada por los Castro para ordenar a esta dictadura títere la aplicación de un llamado “periodo especial” en la economía y forma de vida nacional, que le permitiría llevarnos definitivamente al ignominioso sistema socio político cubano.

Conciudadanos, lo que está pasando aquí actualmente es que mediante el hambre y las necesidades piensan desmoralizarnos a todos para quebrar nuestro espíritu de lucha y voluntad de triunfo. Después de eso será fácil para los sanguinarios ancianos Castro ponernos las cadenas. Eso no puede suceder. Todos los venezolanos debemos enfrentarnos de inmediato con toda nuestra resolución y coraje a Cuba castrocomunista, al club de sanguijuelas internacionales y a los traidores venezolanos que le sirven. Y eso… eso no es una opción… eso es un sagrado deber… es una obligación. Es honorable hacerlo e indigno el no hacerlo.

En medio del entorno descrito anteriormente y desde hace algunos meses, un grupo cada vez más creciente de ciudadanos, alarmados por la terrible situación a la que hemos llegado, y preocupados por la actitud de cándida irresponsabilidad, indiferencia y colaboracionismo con la dictadura, que evidencia públicamente la mayor parte de la dirigencia política venezolana actual, que entre otras cosas, no asume el rol de liderazgo en defensa de su Patria que deberían haber asumido desde hace tiempo puesto que ese es el más sagrado deber de un ciudadano sobre todo si se precia de ser dirigente o líder político de una nación; en vez de cumplir con esa gran responsabilidad, esta dirigencia política actual, lo que hace es insistir en llevar engañados a los venezolanos hacia supuestas salidas electorales que no existen, y que solo permitirán atornillar más a la barbarie castrocomunista en el poder, como ha sucedido siempre hasta ahora, limpiando y fortaleciendo la fachada democrática que exhibe ante los ojos del mundo. Estos ciudadanos que mencione, y que constantemente vienen a mí por diferentes conductos, me piden con insistencia que asuma ese liderazgo en la defensa de lo que a todos nos pertenece.

Ante una petición de tal magnitud y significación, no puedo hacer otra cosa que agradecerles la confianza que depositan en mí y pedirles que me permitan hacer la siguiente reflexión, muy personal por cierto, pero necesaria antes dar tan importante y trascendental respuesta.

Durante toda mi vida he defendido la libertad, democracia e independencia de Venezuela tratando de dar el ejemplo como ciudadano, como militar y como padre de familia. En abril del año 2007, cuando Hugo Chávez, impuso ese lema infernal cubano que no se debe ni mencionar, a la FAN venezolana; yo, que era para el momento un General de Brigada del Ejército, lo enfrenté públicamente y aunque por eso fui enjuiciado por el Consejo de Guerra Permanente de Caracas y condenado a arresto, triunfé… puesto que tiempo después ese grito asesino, sinónimo de opresión y muerte, fue eliminado por el mismo traidor que había ordenado su uso. Junto a mi esposa he formado un hogar honorable y una familia que guarda culto al valor, la honestidad y la verdad. He convertido a la moral en mi principal herramienta de trabajo.

He cumplido al pie de la letra el juramento de soldado venezolano que hice hace 36 años, no me he inclinado ante nadie, no he rendido las armas que me entregó la república ante ningún poder extranjero y no me ha temblado, ni me temblará jamás el pulso, si tengo que empuñarlas para defenderla de sus enemigos. He tenido mucho cuidado de no inmiscuirme en la actividad político partidista ni de asumir roles direccionales sobre los ciudadanos por considerar que el ambiente político actual se encuentra totalmente saturado tanto de organizaciones como de dirigentes de todo tipo y nivel… pero ahora… ante esta nueva circunstancia en la que se me pide guiar a los venezolanos que son leales a la REPUBLICA en momentos en que quienes deberían hacerlo evaden esa responsabilidad, con suma humildad y respeto respondo…

¡AQUÍ ESTOY… ACEPTO Y ASUMO ESA GRAVE Y HONROSA RESPONSABILIDAD!

Echar a Cuba de Venezuela y castigar a los traidores que le sirven con todo el peso de la ley, es el objetivo fundamental de la Resistencia y para lograrlo se requiere tomar con urgencia decisiones muy serias, muy duras y de una gran importancia. Y para poder tomar esas decisiones se necesita disponer de autoridad, de una autoridad que solo pueden concederla los venezolanos y que yo estoy solicitando formalmente, mediante este acto pido a los venezolanos que ME DEN LA AUTORIDAD que necesito para poder guiarlos hacia ese objetivo. Pero además de autoridad también se requiere apoyo. NECESITO TODO SU APOYO PARA LOGRARLO, los necesito a todos, necesito que todos se unan de inmediato con total resolución y coraje, a la RESISTENCIA ANTICASTROCOMUNISTA VENEZOLANA (RAV) en forma activa y efectiva, la cual queda desde este momento y mediante este acto formalizada como movimiento de liberación nacional para expulsar a Cuba castrocomunista de nuestro territorio.

También pido apoyo internacional para Venezuela, y se lo estoy pidiendo es a los pueblos no a los gobiernos puesto que muchos de ellos son cómplices de los crímenes que el castrocomunismo está cometiendo aquí; le hablo a los pueblos de todas las naciones del mundo que todavía son libres, a ellos quiero decirles que los hombres, mujeres y niños que en esta tierra estamos enfrentando la barbarie castrocomunista, necesitamos ayuda, necesitamos el apoyo decidido y la solidaridad absoluta de todos los ciudadanos del mundo libre que defienden la libertad, la democracia, la independencia y los derechos humanos universales. Les pido ayuda para un país que le ha tendido la mano a muchas naciones del mundo en momentos difíciles, un país que hace 200 años le llevó la libertad a Colombia, Ecuador, Perú, Bolivia y Panamá. A todos les pido ayuda para Venezuela que en este momento yace en el piso violada y humillada.

A los venezolanos les pido con vehemencia que de inmediato nos dediquemos a trabajar en el bien inestimable de la unión para alcanzar nuestro objetivo, que nos unamos en torno a esa hermosa bandera de 7 estrellas con un caballo en su escudo galopando hacia adelante, hacia el futuro, unámonos todos conformando una sola familia, y esto lo digo precisamente porque la familia venezolana, célula fundamental de nuestra sociedad, es uno de los objetivos que el castrocomunismo pretende penetrar y destruir. Ya no es problema del vecino, ya está en nuestro propio hogar, no es momento de palabras, es el momento de actuar, las mujeres y los hombres en el campo y la ciudad, los obreros en las fábricas, los pescadores en el mar, el ingeniero, el arquitecto, el médico, el periodista, el estudiante, el maestro, el sacerdote, el militar, todos los venezolanos, todos, debemos unirnos conformando una sola masa compacta que pueda aplastar las pretensiones de los enemigos de Venezuela.

Conciudadanos… Solo nadie puede. Si ustedes deciden darme esa autoridad requerida y ese apoyo necesario yo estoy dispuesto a asumir ese liderazgo nacional que se necesita en estos momentos tan trascendentales y calamitosos para la vida y la permanencia en el tiempo de nuestra Patria como una Republica libre.

La fuerza de su respaldo en las calles de todos los pueblos y ciudades de Venezuela desde ahora y en los próximos días es lo que necesito, será sin lugar a dudas la medida de esa autoridad y ese apoyo que les estoy pidiendo… y además… también será el impulso que orientará las acciones que vamos a tomar en los próximos días hasta que Cuba haya sido expulsada de Venezuela… y para siempre.

Venezolanos… Soy Ángel Vivas… y aquí estoy… listo para defender a Venezuela.

General Ángel Vivas dando la declaración frente a la prensa nacional e internacional.

I accuse the Venezuelan regime of crimes against humanity

As proof I will submit the below image from a document in the possession of the nanny of Venezuela’s foreign minister Elias Jaua, when she was arrested for arms trafficking in Brazil the other day. It’s the plan for winning the parliamentary elections in 2015. The highlighted text reads “Marcar y neutralizar al enemigo (Derrota Permanente)”, in translation, “Stalk and neutralize the enemy (Permanent Defeat)”. Compare that with the tweets from one of the regime thug bands.

Secret document and thug tweets
The secret document reveals the existence of a plan, the tweets reveal the execution of it. Click to open.

The tweets are death threats to two opposition leaders, former mayor Leopoldo López and congresswoman Maria Corina Machado. The first is to Leopoldo´s wife Lilian Tintori and reads: “Lilian you know that Leopoldo will die that you will become a widow and your children orphans, we will kill him from you, it’s in our hands”. The second to Maria Corina reads: “Maria Corina it’s best that you go to Panama because we have you and your family followed and we will kill you, you bet on it, we will finish you”.

There can be no doubt that the death threats are real, or that they are ordered from the very top of the government. This constitutes a clear-cut Crime Against Humanity.

O cursed spite

Shortly before I was born, the world permitted Hitler to not only come to power, but to make himself a dictator, and the world community did not start to act until it was too late. Even worse, they teamed up with the larger criminal, Stalin, and totally ignored his crimes. This ignoring is continuing to this day, and Putin’s Russia has never settled the scores with the past. People who have committed crimes against humanity are celebrated as heroes.

The evil of communism survived in Cuba. From there it infected Latin America, and took root in Venezuela. Communism is an ideology of dominance in which the leadership strives for absolute power. To get absolute power, the enemies—present and potential—have to be completely eliminated. The enemy to power is everyone with resources. Thus, everyone has to be poor, and be depending on the state for his survival. The landowners, the factory owners, the merchants, the farmers, the educated, the clerics, the organized labor, all of those have to be eliminated.

The communist ideology says that to create the communist ideal, one has to create a “new man,” and to do that, one has to eliminate about 10% of the population. It has been shown that only about 10% of a population is connected beyond their immediate family, neighbors, and co-workers. Those 10% are the only ones who can stage a rebellion. Those are the ones who have to be eliminated. Stalin executed and starved them to death. About ten millions of them. Castro executed some, confiscated the property of many more, and made conditions so bad that they fled to USA. The Cubans keep fleeing to USA. This summer has seen the largest wave of “balseros” (people fleeing in home-made rafts over the Caribbean Sea) since after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Why now?

Castro’s Imperialism

When the help from the Soviet Union dried up, Castro tried to take control over the oil-rich South American nation of Venezuela. He had an infiltrator in the presidential palace, an army officer by the name of Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías (who died in Cuba around December 30, 2012, although the regime lied about his death date, and as of today they have still to produce a death certificate, or a medical report, which, together with an audio recording in which his assassination by this method is mentioned, suggests that he was murdered by Raúl Castro). Anyway, in 1989 the first attempt to take power was made, the “Caracazo”, but it failed. A plan to murder the president was averted late in that year, and Chávez was temporarily jailed, but was released by the president (General Peñaloza, then head of military intelligence, has related this to me). In 1992 they tried again, now with a military coup on February 4th, but it, too, failed, and Chávez went to jail. In November the same year a second military coup was attempted, with wanton killings, but also that failed and Chávez remained in jail.

The Venezuelan society was, however, deeply infiltrated, including a high-level person in the presidential palace (we know this because someone tricked president Carlos Andrés Perez to sign the promotion of Chávez after the averted assassination attempt in 1989). They managed to get Chávez released, and he was allowed to run for election to president in 1989. According to what Vice Admiral Carratu has told me (he was “jefe de la casa militar”, responsible for the president’s security, during the 1992 military coup attempt), the director of the election authority was murdered weeks before the 1989 election, and fraud was committed to give the victory to Chávez. And so Castro gained control over Venezuela.

Fast forward. After having successfully used the same method of gaining power in several other nations in Latin America, Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez set their sights on Honduras. Then president Manuel Zelaya was host for the meeting in which Cuba was reinstated into OAS, from which it had been excluded after having attempted a military invasion of Venezuela in the early 1960’s. On June 28th, 2009, Zelaya tried to hold an illegal referendum, in open spite of a direct Supreme Court cease and desist order. He was arrested by the military acting on the Supreme Court’s orders. As a matter of national self-defense in the face of the presence of a large number of armed trouble-makers from Venezuela and Nicaragua inside the country, they judged it unsafe to hold the president inside the country, and so they expatriated him to Costa Rica (where he switched to pajama and falsely claimed that he had been expelled in pajama). The constitutional democracy of Honduras had thus saved itself, for now. It was the first country to successfully resist the Russio-Cuban method of infiltration (the second became Ukraine early this year, when the people threw out the pro-Russian president).

However, in Honduras as in Ukraine, the threat is not over as long as the enemy remains committed to try to conquer the country. I believe the best way to permanently bring Russia into line is to support the Siberian independence movement until victory, but that’s another fight. My concern in 2009 was with Honduras. Neither Honduras nor any country on the Western Hemisphere will be safe, until democracy has been restored on Cuba. “Attack is often the best defense,” as the proverb goes. They infiltrate and try to overthrow regimes from the inside. So how to defeat Castro?

Saving peace and democracy

Infiltrating Cuba is virtually impossible due to the complete physical isolation of the nation. They are even more isolated than North Korea, since they have no land borders. Furthermore, they have virtually no internet or other useful two-way communication.

The weak spot of Cuba is their economy. The extermination of all those who were carrying the economy means that there is virtually no economic activity on the island, so they live on tourism, some exports of raw material (nickel stands out), and—importantly—what they are robbing from oil-rich Venezuela, their de-facto colony since 1999.

Investigating the situation in Venezuela I found that there was fertile ground for a rebellion. Contrary to the western media image, the regime did not have the majority of the people behind it. It didn’t take much study to conclude that it was an electoral dictatorship, a “skenvalsdiktatur” in Swedish, a term that was amply used in the 1930’s in Europe, but that now needs to be dusted off for countries like Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and maybe also Argentina. It’s a franchise, Cuba provides the intelligence through their spy agency G-2, and helps the presidents perpetuate themselves in power in return for them helping Cuba.

The country obviously needed a clandestine resistance movement. There had been much struggle but all open, as if it was a democracy. The dictatorship knew how to neutralize the democratic opposition: Leaders were either bought, compromised, or otherwise eliminated, and they effectively managed to divide the opposition. What they didn’t divide they infiltrated, and gave people the wrong ideas. The clandestine resistance would need to communicate the truth, to counter this propaganda and state-instigated rumors.

In February 2011, I contacted a handful of Venezuelans from different backgrounds with an idea to create an anonymous resistance network, and so  “Operación Libertad Venezuela” was born. To this day it has managed to stay largely clandestine, even though since 2013 it has had two public spokespersons: Former director of the election authority CNE, Ana Mercedes Díaz, and María Conchita Alonso, whose fame in Latin America makes an introduction superfluous. “OLV” manages tens of Facebook-pages for sharing news about the struggle, something that the regime’s censorship does not allow in conventional media. Facebook was chosen strategically: Twitter has inadequate security (as proven by the fact that many tweeters have been arrested this year), and specific domains (such as used by blogs) are way to easy to block. They have tried but failed to block OLV on Facebook, and their only recourse has been to drastically slow down the Internet as a whole.

Unlike Twitter, Facebook also offered affordable advertisement, and using that feature OLV kick-started the resistance when the regime was hiding Chávez’s death in early January, 2013, with this post:

Facebook ad from January 7, 2013
This promoted Facebook-post on January 7, 2013, reached almost half a million Venezuelans. The text says that if no new president is sworn in on January 10 {and nobody was}, Venezuela will effectively turn into a Cuban colony, and for that reason OLV summons all to join the freedom fight.

The collapse of the Venezuelan economy, the death of Chávez, and the tyranny of Maduro have all played into the hands of the resistance. The idea that communism is a viable ideology has been torpedoed by reality. The fact that there is a foreign invasion (not just Cuban militaries but also Russian, Belorussian, and Iranian, plus many Chinese workers in the main military base) is now clear to a majority of Venezuelans. The brutal repression of peaceful protests earlier in 2014 has convinced many that this regime is more akin to Kadaffi’s in Libya, or Assad’s in Syria, than to the dictatorships that fell relatively peacefully in Tunisia and Egypt. In other words, this regime will not let go of power voluntarily, they will fight to death to hold on to power. I, too, believe that to be the case, because they are guilty of so many and so severe crimes, that once out of power the only thing that awaits them is prison for life. We are talking crimes against humanity, cocaine smuggling on a huge scale, and support of terrorism.

This quisling-regime of Maduro’s will have to be removed from power by a popular rebellion, by force, the old-fashioned way. Non-violence does not work against people without conscience: Stalin, Hitler, Castro. Furthermore, Maduro is just a figurehead. The real ruler in Caracas is Diosdado Cabello, who has stolen in the order of a billion (with B) dollars—and so have several others of those white collar communists.

Although Russia has rebounded, the economical hardships in Cuba reveal that Venezuela still is important as an economical backer of the Castro dictatorship, because the economical disaster in Venezuela is directly influencing Cuba. The security forces that the regime uses to defend itself on Cuba, are the same ones that it uses to protect its hold on power in Venezuela. A simultaneous uprising in both countries will have the highest likelihood of success.

When the Venezuelan people do take action to defend their liberty and sovereignty, the world had better be ready to stand up for freedom and democracy. Back in 2009 the world falsely condemned the Honduran democracy’s self-defense as a military coup, ignoring the legal and political reality. That was a black stain on the world community, the memory of which will for ever live in shame. When that happened I felt like Hamlet, and I hated it, but a man has to do what a man has to do:

The time is out of joint, o cursed spite, that ever I was born to set it right.

I pray that the world will react before it is too late to avert world war three. Those who have perpetrated crimes against humanity in the name of communism have to stand trial, whether they are from Venezuela or Cuba, from Russia or China. The fight against evil never ends, and every generation has to keep up the guard and never allow itself to believe that the war is won. It’s not. It’s just an armistice.

FN har upphört att fungera

Den 16 oktober är det val av 5 nya medlemmar till Säkerhetsrådet för en två-årsperiod. I valgruppen för Latinamerika och Karibien finns endast ett kandidatland: Venezuela. Detta samtidigt som presidenten och andra ledande medlemmar av regimen i Venezuela står under utredning av åklagarämbetet för den Internationella Brottsmålsdomstolen i Haag, misstänkta för Brott mot Mänskligheten. Hur är det möjligt att det enda kandidatlandet är en brutal tyranni, en diktatur som håller sig med politiska fångar och torterar och mördar ungdomar som vägrar överge drömmen om att leva i demokrati och frihet? Ett land som dessutom inte längre är självständigt, utan vars quisling-regim hålls kvar vid makten av kubanska, ryska och iranska trupper och säkerhetstjänst?

Naturligtvis kan detta inte accepteras av en demokrati som Sverige. Sveriges regering bör omedelbart ta till alla till buds stående medel för att rädda FN och freden. Venezuela har inte i FN att göra eftersom landet är en skurkstat, en terroristsponsor, och eftersom det inte i praktiken är ett självständigt land utan en vasall för Kuba, Ryssland och Iran (med Kinas goda minne och samarbete).

Om FNs generalförsamling skulle trots allt rösta in Venezuela i säkerhetsrådet bör Sverige stå rakryggad och lämna FN. Vi har ingen som helst glädje av att vara medlemmar i en maffiaorganisation, och om FN röstar för Venezuela, så bevisar de att det är en maffiaorganisation.

General som gav svenska pansarskott till terrorister arresterad

Igår arresterade myndigheterna på den holländska ön Aruba den venezolanska general som av bevisen att döma är den som gav de svenska pansarskotten Carl Gustav, på engelska AT-4, till den colombianska terroristgruppen FARC. Hugo Carvajal, “kycklingen” kallad, är eftersökt av USA för knarksmuggling. Samtidigt som anklagelserna mot honom öppnades i Miami igår, öppnades anklagelseakterna mot en före detta domare som arresterades i Miami, och mot före detta chefen för Interpol i Venezuela, vars uppehållsort är okänd. Samtliga är anklagade för mycket omfattande kokainsmuggling till USA.

I Venezuela fortsätter det folkliga upproret mot Maduros grundlagsvidriga diktatur. Regimens strategi är att göra levnadsvillkoren så usla att folk inte har tid att protestera utan måste ägna all tid åt att lösa vardagliga sysslor som att stå många timmar i kö för att köpa tillräckligt med mat. Vatten, elleveranser och internet fungerar på ett mycket sporadiskt sätt. Det saknas även medicin och grundläggande sjukvårdsmateriel. Inflationen är skyhög och omräknat till dollar har Venezuela nu Sydamerikas lägsta minimilöner, trots att landet har världens största oljereserver och borde vara rikare än Norge. Medlemmarna av diktaturen stjäl emellertid miljarder varje år för att stoppa i egen ficka, medan de facto-ockupationsmakten Kuba tar resten, och i stort sett ingenting går till landets egna befolkning.

Holodomor in Venezuela

There can hardly be any doubt: The Venezuelan puppet regime under Maduro is executing a genocide by hunger. For a long time there has been a serious shortage of food, and people are standing in line from one day to the next just to buy a single package of flour. In the past thousands of tons of food have been found rotting in containers in harbors, but that could be due to incompetence or indifference. However, the new revelations leave no room for doubt: Deliberately burying 200 tons of perfectly good food on a confiscated and abandoned farm is a conscious act executed with a purpose. There is only one logical explanation: They want to starve the Venezuelan people to either submission or death.

The confiscated farm where the food was found buried.

In Ukraine about 10 million people were starved to death the winter of 1933. Stalin took their food and forbade them from leaving the area. My grandfather, Knut “Attarparn” Nilsson, was there at the time, invited by Stalin. He realized that there were no farmers on the farms, and suspected that they were all dead. He just didn’t know how. When he returned to Sweden they sent a loaf of bread with him. It was baked on the grains taken from the farmers in Ukraine, and tasted good according to my dad who was a young child at the time, and who for many decades would know nothing about the Holodomor.

Coincidentally, the night before leaving Moscow, the group in which my grandfather was traveling were all invited to a banquet in the Kremlin. My grandfather, who understood Russian after his time in Alaska (although he had never revealed that to the hosts), switched chair with a friend. Half way through the dinner there was a ruckus around his friend, they took him by force to a hospital and flushed his stomach. Naturally one must conclude that they had poisoned the food and when they realized it was the wrong person sitting there, they saved his life. I say this to illustrate how they think and behave. Killing a person to “save the revolution” is admirable for them, but to kill the wrong person is not allowed.

The food was buried at Corozo Pando in central Venezuela.

Not only does Maduro execute verbal violence; not only does he let his cattle shoot at unarmed protesters; but he is clearly a person who stops at nothing to hold on to power, not even genocide by hunger: Holodomor.
