Reuters: U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday threatened military intervention in Venezuela, a surprise escalation in Washington’s response to Venezuela’s political crisis.

Venezuela has appeared to slide toward a more volatile stage of unrest in recent days, with anti-government forces looting weapons from a military base after the installation of an all-powerful new legislative body.

“The people are suffering and they are dying. We have many options for Venezuela including a possible military option if necessary,” Trump told reporters.

More than 120 people have been killed in Venezuela and thousands arrested in over four months of unrest. The government in Caracas did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump’s threat.

Venezuelan authorities have long said U.S. officials were planning an invasion. A former military general told Reuters earlier this year that some anti-aircraft missiles had been placed along the country’s coast for precisely that eventuality.

In Washington, the Pentagon said it had not received any orders on Venezuela from the White House. Trump, asked if U.S. forces would lead any operation in Venezuela, declined to provide details.

“We don’t talk about it but a military operation - a military option - is certainly something that we could pursue,” Trump said.

Trump may have fabricated a faux nuclear standoff with North Korea to distract attention from what Mueller is finding out about his crimes.

As people catch onto Trump's No. Korea ploy, he's making up the prospect of military intervention in Venezuela! @POTUS is truly desperate.

oh, I think this is at least partly about getting Russia off the headlines and talk shows and it is working. I doubt Robert Mueller is distracted by it, though. The long term strategy may be to claim there are too many things going on the world to worry about a little collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice, etc.

Sounds like you are an Indianophobe. You have a problem with the Lakota People?

Not me, but Custer did. :-)

I am only saying if you promote a war chief you get a war chief. Trump will be what we put into office. His "bomb the (stuff) out of them" comment is one of the things that got him elected. He is what he is ... what we elected. Do we blame those who did not vote and today throw stones at Trump?

I don't blame anyone (except leftists). Trump is doing a good job. Aug 15th is nearly over in Korea and the fat punk has stood down. Hes been put in his place without a shot being fired. Trump did his job, much to the chagrin of the stupid lefty's here who fantasized over a war started by Trump.

"Hes been put in his place without a shot being fired."

I suppose that you think that trump also put Rosie O'Donnell in her place.

What happened to the days when those on the right were real men like Eisenhower instead of drama queens like trump

"Trump did his job"

sure if you consider doing his job running his wingnut mouth, but don't peek, nothing has changed

except 'Crazy Horse' criticized getting involved in previous wars during the campaign. Non-intervention and 'America First' were part of his appeal.

"Trump will be what we put into office."

You make an excellent point.  Every one knew that they were electing someone who was a "little off" but  the excuses they made were once elected trump would become more presidential, and we all know that did not happen and it will not happen because like you said, what you see is what you get.
