Juan Guaido calls on military to allow aid into Venezuela

Maduro's supporters and far-left radicals in the United States have speculated since Guaidó's inauguration that the USA may stage a military intervention in the Latin American country, an option Trump himself has repeatedly maintained remains "on the table".

Humanitarian aid sent by the U.S. recently arrived in the Colombian city of Cucuta at the border with Venezuela, but Maduro has refused to let in the shipments.

Attending a church service Sunday with his family, he recognized that the feud between those who do and do not want the aid to be let in could lead to clashes. "This a crime against humanity, men of the armed forces".

Shipments of US food, medicine, and humanitarian aid are on the Colombian side, with a tanker and two large trucks sitting in the middle of the bridge.

Venezuela's opposition has so far only publicly announced the arrival of aid in the Colombian border town of Cucuta, where it is now being stockpiled as Venezuelan authorities have made it clear they will not allow it to enter the country.

"We are a pacifist people as long as no one messes with us, that Donald Trump does not threaten us", Maduro said. Russian Federation called out worldwide intervention in the affairs of Venezuela and the threat of foreign military action.

The United States was the first to recognize Guaido as the president of Venezuela, followed by Canada, and many Latin and European nations.

Over recent weeks, millions of Venezuelans have rallied around their president, Juan Guaidó, recognized by the US and dozens of democracies around the world as the nation's legitimate leader following his constitutionally approved inauguration on January 23.

"We are going to call truly free elections in Venezuela once the usurpation ceases, and we can build the mechanisms to have a truly free election", Guaido has repeatedly vowed, stating that he believes Maduro has no real choice but to eventually surrender.

A drop in energy prices, corruption, and failed socialist policies have destroyed the oil-rich Venezuelan economy, leaving severe shortages of food and medicine and out-of-control inflation.
