if that weren't the case, dude would be in a cell or a grave already.
rebels within venezuela's military were trying to coordinate with u.s. forces, that's a fact. the u.s. passed. could they have regrouped and formed a new plan? absolutely.
now, of course, it's easy to meet that with a side eye and think the worst.
but again, consider that a country that has been inculcated with anti-American sentiment and conspiracy theories (as well as actual facts) about America ruining their country is now *largely supportive of American intervention*.
this is more complicated than some ideological lens or drawing on past examples. there is a real crisis here, not just a resource ripe for pillaging.
