US Navy “Ready” to “Restore Democracy” in Venezuela through Military Means?

“I’m not going to detail what we’re planning and what we’re doing, but we’re ready to implement policy decisions, and we’re ready to act …

His remarks [Faller] came just weeks after President Donald Trump said he was considering a “blockade or quarantine” of the Latin American country.

“I don’t know how Maduro looks at anything.”
