When the economy collapses in a nation, and the police state is well past the point of shooting rioters and protestors who are poor and hopeless and starving to protect the state, eventually people retaliate against the state. Don’t ignore the crisis in Venezuela – it shows a likely future for Europe and America after the coming economic crash – and the government here will, like every other one in history, resort to WAR to direct peoples’ energy against a different enemy, instead of at THEM, and the greed and corruption of the entire government and banking establishment.
from BBC news article HERE:
“A helicopter has attacked Venezuela’s Supreme Court in what President Nicolás Maduro called a “terrorist” incident.
Four grenades were dropped on the court and 15 shots fired at the interior ministry on Tuesday, officials said.
Rogue policeman Oscar Pérez said he had piloted the stolen helicopter to attack what he called a “criminal government”. His whereabouts are unknown.
Venezuela is in the midst of a political and economic crisis that has sparked mass protests.

Many of those opposed to Mr Maduro see the Supreme Court as one of his main supporters.
What happened in the attack?
A blue police helicopter was seen flying over central Caracas carrying a banner reading “350 Freedom” – a reference to a clause in the constitution cited by opponents of Mr Maduro to claim his government is illegitimate.
Images on social media showed two occupants, one masked.
The government said 15 shots were fired at a social event at the interior ministry. The helicopter then flew to the court and dropped four Israeli-made grenades of “Colombian origin”. One failed to detonate.
No-one was injured.
How has the government responded?
President Maduro appeared on state television to denounce the attack.
He said: “I have activated the entire armed forces to defend the peace. And you can be assured that sooner or later, we are going to capture that helicopter and those that carried out this terror attack against the institutions of the country.”
