Former U.S. Ambassador To The UN Says He Has Previously Helped Plan Coups In Other Countries

Former U.S. Ambassador To The UN Says He Has Previously Helped Plan Coups In Other Countries

John Bolton, who served as a national security adviser in the Donald Trump administration, said Tuesday he had previously helped plan coups in other countries.

Bolton was on CNN where he rejected the notion that the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot was a “carefully planned coup” by former President Trump. The Capitol Hill protest got Trump impeached as he was being accused of inciting his supporters by rejecting the election of Joe Biden.

Bolton told CNN’s Jake Tapper:

That’s not the way Donald Trump does things. It’s rambling from one … idea to another, one plan that falls through, and another comes up.

Ultimately, he did unleash the rioters at the Capitol. As to that, there’s no doubt.

As somebody who has helped plan coup d’état, not here but other places, it takes a lot of work, and that’s not what he did.

Although Bolton said he wouldn’t go “into specifics” on which countries he’d assisted coups in, he noted that he’d written in his book about efforts in Venezuela to end Nicolás Maduro’s regime that “turned out not to be successful — not that we had all that much to do with it.” Bolton, a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said:

But I saw what it took for an opposition to try and overturn an illegally elected president, and they failed. The notion that Donald Trump was half as competent as the Venezuelan opposition is laughable.

The United States has often been accused of championing and or funding regime change agendas in many countries including Zimbabwe under the guise of pushing for observance of human rights. The superpower has always denied the allegations.

We do not organise coups directly but we create conditions for them to happen mainly through economic restrictions and use of local NGOs

At the risk of courting the ire of our present government, brought about through a coup, another coup in this failed state is long overdue because the current ruining party insists on clinging to power in spite of losing elections since 2008 and beyond.

@die hard, anyone who assists in getting rid of our geriatrics is most welcome in my view
