Elliott Abrams–a rabid Zionist & Kissinger protégé who has a human rights crime rap sheet ten miles long (especially in drug trafficking to fund the Nicaraguan Contras, in Latin America, Central America, Palestine & the Middle East)–has been appointed the US official to deal with Venezuela. US international policy is not personal or personality-driven. We have no more to fear from Abrams than we do from any other flunkey diplomat overseeing US foreign policy. US policy is formulated on the needs of US capitalism which is in the vortex of a profound worldwide crisis.

What Abram’s appointment signals is increasing US military & human rights threats against the people of Venezuela. We should be alarmed about his appointment only because of those threats to Venezuelans. We should not panic about Abrams but must organize rallies around the world demanding “No US war against Venezuela!”
