    Trump - Not ruling out military option against Venezuela

    President Donald Trump on Friday said he would not rule out the U.S. pursuing “a military option” against Venezuela, which has come under increased pressure for its human rights abuses.

    Speaking to reporters after meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, Trump said he has “many options” for Venezuela, “including a possible military operation, if necessary.”

    The U.S. Treasury Department late last month targeted Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro with sanctions, accusing him of widespread abuses of the Venezuelan people.

    Don't prey about that... Mueller at least is doing what he's supposed to do.

    I know, but seriously him running him mouth about NK and Venezuela could end up having some very serious consequences.

    He needs to shut his trap and leave any talk about "military" to the grown-ups.

    No, it sounds like he is keeping all the options on the table.

    Just the threat of military action may be enough to help these poor folks.

    This seems to be Trumps main strategy which I think is a good one.

    Maybe if his predecessors had taken this approach we wouldn't have all these problems today.

    And Trump did not create a crisis in Venezuela, they did that themselves, Trump is just choosing to deal with it where others have ignored them.

    Good job by Trump.

    If we can get some MULTIPLE wars going, against North Korea and Venezuela, say, and maybe even Iran, then maybe, just maybe, this whole darned Russia fake news story 'thingie' will vanish from the front pages of the newspapers.

    At least, that's the PLAN, right?
    Thanks from Babba and HayJenn

    Nope, I was never a fan of Bush and certainly not of the war.

    US military is not the world police. Nor should it be. Unless you enjoy the sight of your troops coming home in flag-draped coffins

    That's the price of every involvement of your military in other parts of the world.
