Venezuela has been under a US attack for many years economically and by 
a media propaganda campaign with the sole purpose of isolating the 
country to the point submission. Now the attacks are coming from many 
directions. The Grupo Lima has call for not recognizing the new Maduro’s 
government and to suspend diplomatic relations with Venezuela. The group 
members that voted in favor of this declaration were Argentina, Brazil, 
Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Panama, 
Paraguay, Peru, and Saint Lucia while Mexico abstained.

Colombia has 7 US military bases along the border with Venezuela, and 
now the new Brazilian president is open to establishing US military 
bases along its border with Venezuela as well.

Rumors swirl about US cutting diplomatic relations or taking other 
actions.  Meanwhile, Russian military aircraft landed in Caracas as part 
of expanded military cooperation with Venezuela.
