The north of Santander, department located to the east of Colombia on the borders with the State Táchira of Venezuela has as capital the city of Cúcuta. February 23 this city will be the epicenter of a humanitarian aid media prefabrication which aims to create the psychological and political conditions for a military aggression against Venezuela
We wonder why this “humanitarian aid and concern” is not addressed to the population of Norte de Santander, which has alarming figures regarding a humanitarian crisis that no one sees, which of course is not politically profitable to the Latin American right, thus bordering on contempt for humanity. The thesis of humanitarian interference is cynical and hypocritical; it is only applicable to governments and states that are not in the plebeian orbit of the empire.
Let us examine the picture of this humanitarian drama in Norte de Santander:
In recent decades, this region, and in particular its capital, has served as a laboratory for the State’s counterinsurgency strategy, which combines the state constitutional military forces and private mercenary armies known as paramilitaries, which depend in terms of command, communication, control and logistics on the commanders of the military brigades in the territory. Under the doctrine of depriving fish of water, the counterinsurgency has deployed terror against the civilian population.
The most outrageous fact against the dignity of humanity has been the existence of crematoriums in the city of Cúcuta where leaders of opposition to the political regime were burned and disappeared, regarding this event one can judge the versions of the paramilitary perpetrator called the Iguano, who coldly narrates the facts.
The statistics of the human rights tragedy endured for decades in Norte de Santander are detailed in the statistics of the Single Registry of Victims, which we present below:

How great we human beings are in intelligence, morality, and power! I have wave worn out all my mirrors admiring myself! Such wisdom displayed taking God’s great gift to us, the wonderful earth! Okay, billions of lives lost in greed and envy provoked conflicts, stuff happens. And, okay, we couldn’t be located from a moderate celestial distance in the universe, even with an electron Hubbard telescope while we blast out to the best of our ability signals inviting visitors, RSVPs not required, come as you are. Dear God, seriously, please save us from ourselves!
I find myself incredibly saddened by what is happening in Venezuela. Thanks for reblogging the post.

Reblogged this on Worldtruth and commented:
Columbia is already in the pocket of the western far right so no action needed.
Pertaining to Venezuela, another (alternative) bottom up perspective of the situation there: Venezuela, the theory of permanent revolution and the role of the working class.
Thanks Norman. Seems like a very interesting article. I look forward to reading. I guess I agree with the analysis that none of Latin America’s so-called socialist countries (Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina, Bolivia) were ever remotely socialist in any sense of the word. They all remained firmly capitalist countries. However because they introduced a slight bit of land reform and increased spending on the poorest segment of the population, both the US and the right wing opposition took to labeling them socialist.
