Power flows from the barrel of a rifle. -- Mao Tse Tung
The military was going to have to eventually settle this dispute, between Maduro (Bad socialist), and Juan Guaido (Brave western oriented challenger, who has the backing of the Venezuelan courts and parliament). Maduro has invited in Russian and Cuban soldiers. He has kept out shipments of food from Brazil. He's a bad dude, and only guys with guns can remove him.
Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido has called for a military uprising in what he dubbed the "final phase" of his bid to oust President Nicolas Maduro. In response, at least some units are firing on each other in a confusing conflict situation.
