14/02/2019: Venezuela crisis, the President of the Templar Nation Bonsi says no to positions in favor of Maduro or Guaidó and calls for the intervention of the United Nations for free and democratic elections, even if …

The President of the Templar Nation, Riccardo Bonsi, intervenes on the crisis that in recent months is gripping Venezuela.

“The political situation in Venezuela is certainly very dangerous.

We are, unfortunately, at the limits of a civil war, with the people now exasperated by a situation of extreme poverty and by the limitation of individual freedom.

The political situation in America is restless for the case Venezuela and the crisis has repercussions in the rest of the World.

At the presidential re-election of Maduro, the Asamblea Nacional, the Venezuelan parliament in the hands of the opposition, responded with the appointment of another interim president, the deputy Juan Guaidó, on the basis of the provisions of Article 233 of the Constitution, article that establishes the possibility of removal of President in charge in case of abandonment of the mandate, determined by the legislative power.

This move has sparked chaos in the international political scene.

On the one hand, the United States, the group of Lima (the multilateral organization established in 2017 in the Peruvian capital of Lima to establish a peaceful exit of the crisis in Venezuela, consisting of 14 countries, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Guyana and Saint Lucia), the European Union and the United Kingdom declared themselves in favor of new elections (some states have even already recognized Guaidó’s authority in as President), while on the other hand, Russia, China, Turkey, the Arab League, Bolivia, Cuba, Nicaragua and many African states have openly expressed their support for Maduro.

Common sense, which is also the line of the Templar Nation, is not to take positions in favor of one or the other faction, but to solicit the immediate intervention of the International Community, through its most representative body, the UN, so that it can guarantee immediate and free democratic elections.

The future of Venezuela must belong to the Venezuelan people, who have the right to choose the future of their country.

This is for us the way to go, even if in reality, things are more complicated.

The UN in order to intervene needs the vote of Russia and China, but they do not have the slightest intention to vote in favor of new elections.

Moscow and especially Beijing are heavily exposed in Venezuela; they lent billions of dollars to the Chavez government first and then to Maduro and was paid off in part with oil, but they have no intention of losing everything that Caracas still owes.

So, as often happens, the UN is blocked and, once again, loses its position as a super partes body to be a slave organization of the political positions of the various states that are part of it.

What to do, then?

An external military intervention (other than the UN) would only create a major international crisis and, perhaps, would only lead to a new, long and exasperating war in Venezuela.

Taking new sanctions against Venezuela would only damage the people, creating a new mass exodus.

So, or the UN will succeed in intervening as a body guaranteeing new elections, or the solution can only come from within, with the risk of a bloody civil war.

On the internal level, let’s say it clearly, everything is in the hands, as it has always been in Venezuela, of the military and their loyalty to Maduro.

It is clear that any change of government will only be possible with the support of a large part of the armed forces, which are actively engaged in today’s repression of protests.

The military system is part of the government occupying almost half of the ministries and controls one third of the federated states that make up Venezuela.

The generals sit on the board of directors of the PDVSA (Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A.), the Venezuelan state oil company, and manage the distribution and storage of food products managed by the State, often the only ones arriving in the most degraded areas.

Maduro is surrounded by generals and some of them are directly accused by the DEA, the American anti-drug intelligence, of managing the drug trafficking networks that come from Colombia to the United States and Europe via Venezuela.

So far there have been some isolated defections, but they are too few to break the civic-military alliance that has governed Venezuela for 20 years.

But something is changing: the base of the soldiers no longer holds the pressure of the people, many have a family and know closely the food crisis, corruption, violence in the country.

Thus, a rebellion could come from the bottom of the armed forces and leave the generals alone.

Of course, the UN intervention would be the solution to this disturbing scenario, but will Russia and China be willing to leave room for the will of the Venezuelan people?

We will try, because, in full respect of the principle of self-determination, in a State the people must always be sovereign.

Everything else is dirty dictatorship “.
