Lindsey Graham Bangs War Drums, Wants American Forces Involved in Venezuela
The calls for military action in Venezuela grow stronger each day.
Now, Senator Lindsey Graham wants the U.S. to escalate the current conflict in Venezuela.
In a recent tweet, Lindsey Graham suggested sending an aircraft carrier to counter the Maduro government which has received aid from Cuba and Russia.
Cuba, Russia send troops to prop Maduro up in Venezuela…….while we talk/sanction.
Where is our aircraft carrier?

This week has been rather explosive for Venezuela.
On April 29, 2019 Juan Guaidó launched an uprising against President Nicolás Maduro.
This uprising received praise from Congressman Matt Gaetz, however he did call for non-intervention in this case.
Congressman Thomas Massie also advised that the U.S. Congress take the necessary constitutional precautions to handle the situation in Venezuela.
Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar also called for non-intervention in Venezuela, but instead she blamed U.S. meddling, not Venezuela’s long history of socialist policies, for its current economic collapse.
Nevertheless, it seems that there’s considerable tension in Washington D.C about what to do in the South American country.
Despite his efforts to defend Supreme Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Graham has reverted back to his old ways by pushing for gun control and now calling for military action in Venezuela.
Venezuela’s collapse is self-inflicted, but it should not have the U.S. military involved.
America has too many problems to deal with as it is. This is the Venezuelan people’s fight, but Americans can help in a private capacity with aid and awareness.
