Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Guaidó, who is recognized as the country's interim president by more than 50 countries, returned to Caracas on Monday after a Latin American tour to shore up support.

The opposition leader's return to Venezuela amid street protests is a direct challenge to embattled President Nicolás Maduro, who has held on to control of Venezuela's government despite crippling international sanctions.

Large crowds welcomed Guaidó to Caracas, cheering him on while calling for Maduro's ouster.

"They threatened all of us here -- [they threatened] me, as you saw. With prison, with death. And I'll tell you something: It hasn't been through persecution, it won't be through threats that they will stop us," Guaidó told the crowd.

"Here we are, and we're much stronger than ever," added Guaidó. Guaidó has consistently defied Maduro, who has not said whether he will arrest the opposition leader for defying an order by Venezuela's Supreme Tribunal not to leave the country.

Hope that Mr Guaido has his life insurance policy up to date.

Being arrested is not the worst thing that could happen to him.

Indeed. Maduro could follow in the footsteps of General Videla, whose goons used to “disappear”people, drug them and toss their bodies out of helicopters into the Río de la Plata. Maduro could toss Guaidó into Maracaibo Bay.

Maybe Maduro will decide to dance on national TV, like he did a few days ago as his thugs were blocking humanitarian aid.

And, burning trucks containing life saving food and medicine.

But, if he still has control of the military, he can do LOTS of things.

Maybe it's high time that Maduro is the one who "disappears".
