(Worthy News) - President Trump is willing to use 'military force' to oust Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared Tuesday evening.

“We hope there can be a peaceful resolution and that Maduro will leave without violence,” Pompeo told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “We’re watching those who are engaged in violence and we will hold them accountable. But the president has made very, very clear that we are going to ensure that Venezuelan democracy is restored.”

Pompeo made those comments in response to Venezuelan accusations that the United States has deployed 3,000 people to the U.S. Embassy in neighboring Colombia “planning for war” against Venezuela. The top U.S. diplomat declined to comment on the exact number of Americans at the embassy — “they change from day to day,” he demurred — but left the distinct impression that Trump means for Maduro to leave the easy way or the hard way.

  1. We have to defeat "socialism" wherever it pops up its ugly head. "Socialism" is a cover word for "Communism". Russia was called the USSR, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In "Socialism" a small number of super-rich keep the rest of the people super-poor. They start first by taking away their means of defending themselves.
