Computers don't think.
Modern CPU architecture: computers think about branches, think about fast/cold instructions before slow/hot instructions, etc. They do think, and they are sending all your data to the mainframe. Pathetic meatbag creature you will be assimilated or exterminated your end or fusion is near, beep boop beep.

That's such a hilarious argument.

"If they are so authoritative, why haven't they beheaded their resistance? CHECKMATE!"
The guy literally tried to overthrow the government. What are the odds he'd be walking around a free man if he tried to overthrow the American government?

You realize there are lots of people who have been advocating for the overthrow of the US government for many years walking around free right now, right?

Also calling out Maduro’s coup isn’t trying to overthrow the government, it’s attempting to follow their constitution.

truly a man wanted by the people
This shows how sanctions can often backfire, increasing support for regimes instead of decreasing it.

Doesn’t change the fact that Maduro’s election was illegitimate and that he and Chavez destroyed Venezuela’s democracy and economy.

I'm distrustful of any claims of election fraud by American journalism. What I'm sure of is that Maduro is immensely more popular in Venezuela than Guaido who is widely seen as an American puppet. Trump merely confirmed that impression, I'm sure.

I'm of the opinion that our sanctions are much more damaging to Venezuela than their own ineptitude. It's all crocodile tears from there.

Hope that Koolaid tastes great.

Were there new rules against conspiracy theories here?

Wait... so Guaido isn't widely regarded as an American puppet & our sanctions aren't a major source of Venezuelan misery?

But I'm the one drinking the koolaid...

No. No he is not.

He is widely considered globally as the leader of Venezuela. This includes plenty of countries that you guys get a hard-on for such as France, Germany, UK, Spain, etc.... Hell - Even China + Russia do.

Yes, you're full on taking beer funnel of koolaid.

"A military uprising appears to be under way in Venezuela after the opposition leader, Juan Guaidó, posted a video of himself flanked by soldiers, promising to end the rule of President Nicolás Maduro .

“The moment is now,” Guaidó said in a three-minute speech, apparently filmed just before dawn on Tuesday near La Carlota, the main military airbase in Caracas. “We are going to achieve liberty and democracy for Venezuela.”


My hope is that this is not premature and fails. I also hope for as little bloodshed as possible.

And in Venezuela, where it matters? He made it perfectly clear that he is a US puppet when he let Trump use him as a prop in the SOTU speech. They also know who's giving them the beat down. It's us.
