The United States has renewed its threats to Venezuela to impose new sanctions in the nearby future. “Venezuela is sliding into dictatorship”, the US Vice President Mike Pence wrote on his Twitter account. “The United States will not accept the rise of a dictator and there may be new sanctions against Venezuela soon,” Pence told the crowd at a press conference during his visit to Colombia. “We have many options for Venezuela, including a military intervention if necessary”, he told reporters in New Jersey.
While legitimate opposition does exist in Venezuela, the Maduro government is obviously not willing to bend over backwards far enough to whatever demands of the US energy interests in Venezuela, which is one of few reasons the US ever considers military intervention.
