  • asombra: And look, they even got the guards to dress up for this. Too bad their caps don’t match their uniforms. Clowns.

  • asombra: And isn’t Diana dressed for the occasion? At least that cow in the background put on a “cocktail” outfit....

A night of violence and murder in Venezuela as the Cuba-backed dictatorship unleashes wave of terror

A sobering and disturbing report from Audrey Dacosta in Caracas Chronicles on the wave of terror that swept over Venezuela last night. The armed forces of Venezuela's Castro-controlled dictatorship were out in full force last night, indiscriminately shooting and murdering innocent people. As the photos and videos below clearly show,  the tactics are pure Castro-Cuban. There is no doubt the orders for this violence came directly from Venezuela's colonial masters in Havana.

19F – The Night Venezuela Finally Imploded

Penned-in protesters in Altamira, awaiting their fate.

Tonight, Venezuela is seeing a spasm of violence that’s unlike anything the country has experienced since 1989. Information is fragmented, since an almost complete media black-out is in place, but you don’t need the media to hear your neighbor’s screams.

Caracas, Valencia, Merida and San Cristobal in particular have become virtual war zones: National Guard units and National Police have been shooting tear gas canisters and buckshot sometimes directly at protesters, sometimes into residential buildings and, raiding any place they think student protesters may be hiding. Alongside them, the government backed colectivos (basically paramilitary gangs on motorbikes, a tropical basij) shoot at people with live ammo.

But of course, this is no war zone: in a war zone you have two sides shooting at each other. Tonight one side is doing all the shooting, the other side is doing all the being shot at.

The videos that are starting to come out are simply shocking. It’s as though the denouement we both sides have either feared or looked forward to for so long is finally coming to a head. See the arrival of the colectivos at Altamira square earlier tonight:
