New Zealand Opposition Lies To Attack Venezuela, Maduro

Published 2019-02-04 21:00:10 by Curwen Ares Rolinson in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Latin-America, New-Zealand, Opinions, Venezuela

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – There are a few things to be said about this attack-line from the NZ National Party’s Judith Collins. One of which, is that Collins either doesn’t know, or more likely simply doesn’t care about the facts of the situation. Juan Guaido did not contest the 2018 Venezuelan Presidential Election.

But, you know, it isn’t nearly as neat of a soundbite to talk about the installation of an “Interim President” with a view toward organizing pending new elections, so a simplistic “TRUE WINNER”… Continue ->

KIEV, Ukraine – Ukraine’s presidential candidate Inna Bogoslavskaya, a former deputy of the Supreme Rada (Ukrainian parliament), proposed to produce graphite bombs to deal with Russia, according to a statement made during the talks on the radio station Novoe Vremya.

WASHINGTON DC, The United States – US Senate Armed Services Committee chief Jim Inhore says Washington is losing its military superiority over rivals and now needs significant investments to catch up.

Inhore points out that the US “won two world wars” because of its military superiority, adding that the Pentagon had as many aircraft at the end of the Cold War as… Continue ->
