I really like Aaron Mate. He seems like one of the more intelligent and thoughtful speakers out there.

Venezuelans will be made to suffer under draconian sanctions until President Nicolas Maduro is forced out of office, journalist Aaron Maté told RT, describing the tactic as a page from Washington's “regime-change playbook.”

Support for opposition leader Juan Guaido has all but dried up, and Venezuela’s military continues to remain loyal to Maduro. The failure of the US-backed coup means that Washington will now use economic warfare in an attempt to make the Venezuelan people bend to its will, Maté explained to Afshin Rattansi on RT’s Going Underground.

“When you can’t use force, then you try to make the people suffer,” Maté said about the “unprecedented” sanctions targeting Caracas. He added that the strategy of economic strangulation is part of the “regime-change playbook that the US follows around the world.”

Watch the full interview.
We will not win fighting what we hate but by saving what we love.

Keep Calm and Carry On 👍

Good interview.  But why is he working for The Nation?
Ye shall know the phony left by the gates they keep.
