February 22, 2014 (TSR) – While the Venezuelan opposition – which narrowly lost the April 2013 presidential election and later lost the municipal elections of December 2013 by a wide margin – calls for “regime change”, the media are busily engaged in numerous manipulations, using events from other countries and mass rallies that never took place, in order to smear, distort and implicate President Nicolas Maduro and the Chavista government. The same outlets like Al Jazeera are spreading them, just as also when Qatar with NATO spent a lot of monies on fellow political strategists and effort in crafting devious media strategy whose goal was to demonise Muammar Gaddafi and demoralise the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya citizens. They have been trying the same tactic to Bashar al-Assad and Syrian Arab Republic since 2011, but to no avail. Russia and China learned the lesson in Libya and have been very keen on not repeating that mistake again. Today, Al-Jazeera journalists are in Egyptian jail for disinformation and working with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Can you really blame Egyptian authorities? Al Jazeera has been a vocal mouthpiece of Muslim Brotherhood and the Emir of Qatar, before he was blackmailed by USA to hand over the position to his son, created the broadcasting channel to push his foreign policy.
The following are some of what is being used to manipulate the emotional triggers of the international community and many gullible groups who believe in the twisted version of what is really going on in Venezuela and the persistent efforts of USA to destabilise the nation to get their hands in the oil and other resources.
