Emergency UN Security Council Meeting, January 26, 2019

This morning Venezuelan Foreign Minister  presented a brilliant defense of President Maduro’s government, against the attempted coup d’etat engineered by the United States and its proxies in Europe and newly right-wing Latin American countries Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Ecuador.  The United States called this “emergency” meeting, seeking the authorization of the United Nations Security Council for intervention in Venezuela’s internal affairs, and the infamous regime change similar to that which  spread chaos in Libya and Iraq after the UN authorized military intervention to overthrow the governments of Saddam Hussein and Omar Khadaffy.

The UN Must Totally Break from US Administrative Control By Wayne Madsen

7 January 2019 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Ever since it was decided to locate the headquarters of the United Nations in New York, the world body has been beset by constant meddling by the host country, that is, the United States, which is increasingly violating the letter and spirit of the 1947 treaty between the United States and United Nations regarding the headquarters of the UN.

The U.S. has desperately attempted to find pretexts to provide a basis for the alleged sonic attacks, for which the U.S. State Department directly or indirectly blames Cuba.
