On 3 May, the Venezuelan Armed Forces thwarted an amphibious mercenary operation and captured 13 individuals including two American citizens.
As it turned out later, the botched naval raid was part of a broader plan masterminded by a group of dissident Venezuelan military personnel and the US private military company, Silvercorp USA, to oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
Covid-19 is used as a smokescreen for the invasion. Submarines and other military naval vessels are on the prowl in de Caribbean Sea along the Venezuelan coastline.
French, British and Dutch expeditionary ships were ready to follow up on the move and land in Venezuela once a bridgehead was formed and established in Caracas. The island of Curaçao is used for logistic backup once the military invasion was in full swing.
Guaido Was the ‘Commander in Chief’ of the Failed Mercenary Operation.
However, this was another failed coup attempt to invade Venezuela and take over the government in Caracas. The headquarters for this operation is in Martinique.
Last month a Colombian passenger ship sailing under Portuguese flag rammed and sunk a Venezuelan coast guard vessel and went into hiding in a harbor of the Dutch colony of Curaçao to disembark US mercenaries that were heading for the Venezuelan coast?
A undercover container ship loaded with a large cached of weapons is now docked at one of the Dutch colony’s outer ports near the emptied tourist resorts @ Jan Thiel.
The strategic objective of this armed incursion code-named ‘Operation Gideon’ was to prevent the reconstitution of the Christian-Democratic Chavista movement in Venezuela.
One of the failed operation’s tactical goals was to “keep Maduro in limbo” until the USA deems fit to try to remove him.
Eliminating its military action and resistance potential includes Venezuelan Major General Cliver Alcala, one of the Chavista generals who broke ranks with Maduro over political disagreements.
A week before the failed amphibious invasion retired Venezuelan Major General Cliver Antonio Alcala Cordones, who was discharged from the army in July 2013 and lived in exile in Colombia, admitted that he was orchestrating a coup plot against Maduro.
Alcala went public after Washington indicted him on narco-terrorism and offered a reward of “up to $10 million” for information leading to his arrest on 26 March 2020.
The retired major general resolutely denied the accusation, stressing that he had previously met with US officials on no fewer than “seven occasions“.
He also specified that an arms shipment seized by Colombian authorities earlier in the month was intended for the operation.
Alcala had amassed at least 300 heavily armed volunteers who were expected to stealthily invade Venezuela from the north. The plot was developed together with former Green Beret Jordan Goudreau.
The retired major general stated that self-proclaimed president of Venezuela, Juan Guaido, and his counterpart Leopoldo Lopez were aware of the operation. He accused the opposition figures of leaking the plan.
The next day Alcala “gave himself up to US authorities in Bogota, accepting an offer from Washington to become a witness against Maduro and falsely testify against him.
Having been left without strategic direction and leadership, the coup d’etat plan morphed into an “amateur operation carried out by Zionist bounty hunters, Venezuelan, US political fortune seekers and entrepreneurs.
Without back up they never had a chance of ‘capturing, stopping, or eliminating Nicolas Maduro’, in order to collect the US reward of $15 million.
While Washington has denied any prior knowledge of the failed amphibious operation, Democratic congressmen on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee are demanding answers from the Trump administration about the raid aimed at capturing Maduro.
Regardless of Operation Gideon’s failure and US lawmakers’ calls for a peaceful resolution of the Venezuela crisis, Nicolas Maduro is still under threat.
