Ex-Venezuelan General Surrenders to DEA Agents

“Clíver Antonio Alcalá Cordones, former Venezuelan general, on Friday surrendered to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) just a day after being indicted by US federal prosecutors and having a $10 million reward posted for his capture US federal prosecutors alleged he had been ‘a leader and manager of the Cartel of the Suns,’ a supposed drug smuggling ring inside the Venezuelan government the US government has claimed makes leading Venezuelan officials ‘narco-terrorists.’ “

“… The charges by the US Department of Justice claim that in 2008, Alcalá helped provide support for the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a communist militia group in rebellion against the Colombian government and which plays a role in cultivating coca, used to manufacture cocaine. Maduro was also among those indicted…  The European Union, which also backs Guaido’s claims, endorsed the American charges on Thursday…”

Ricardo Sanguino, Former Economy Minister: “No Country that Loves Peace can Promote a Bacteriological War”

Socialist Venezuela’s national assembly press interviewed “Ricardo Sanguino, a former economy minister and a parliamentarian representing the United Socialist Party of Venezuela for the Táchira state.”

Specifically referring to bacteriological attacks on pig and cane production in Cuba, he said, “That is not new.” The interview went like this:

Sanguino: “In the case of China, I saw videos showing the apparent intention of the US to have infected the Wuhan region. In any case, you have to wait. The Chinese are patient, very observant, scientific people, they do not rush and, if true, they will say so in due course.”

Press: “Is bacteriological warfare a reality, apart from the coronavirus?”

Sanguino: “Yes. That exists. I would venture to say that the United States has it, Great Britain and Israel can have it, and well, we have to make a movement against that. They are wars where no cannons [sic] or missiles are seen, but they affect our people. You have to be against it. No country, leader or leader who loves peace and prides himself on such can promote a bacteriological war.”

Press:Could the former president Hugo Chavez be victim of bacteriological warfare?”

Sanguino: “It is not ruled out by US imperialism.”

Press:By attacking China, do they destabilize the world economy?

“A Man and a Lion traveled together through the forest. They soon began to boast of their respective superiority to each other in strength and prowess. As they were disputing, they passed a statue carved in stone, which represented a Lion strangled by a Man. The traveler pointed to it and said: ‘See there! How strong we are, and how we prevail over even the king of beasts.” The Lion replied: ‘This statue was made by one of you men. If we Lions knew how to erect statues, you would see the Man placed under the paw of the Lion.’

“One story is good, till another is told.”
