Pastrana: ‘There is a Military Rupture in Venezuela’

first_imgBy Ricardo Guanipa D’erizans/Diálogo May 31, 2019 In recent months, the economic, social, and political crisis in Venezuela started to be felt more strongly within Venezuelan military garrisons. To learn more about this issue, Diálogo spoke by phone with former Colombian President Andrés Pastrana (1998-2002), who is well versed in regional military issues, after leading one of the largest U.S. military cooperation efforts in the hemisphere. Known as Plan Colombia, the operation sought to confront narcotrafficking and terrorist groups of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC, in Spanish) and the National Liberation Army (ELN, in Spanish). “There is a military rupture in Venezuela, which became evident to international public opinion on April 30, when a group of service members repudiated Nicolás Maduro’s authority and recognized Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela,” Pastrana said. “This was fully evident when President Donald Trump’s security advisor, John Bolton, confirmed that Minister of Defense Vladimir Padrino and Major General Iván Rafael Hernández Dala, responsible for presidential security, had told the opposition that Maduro should step down to facilitate a peaceful transition in Venezuela.” “No country in the world has more imprisoned service members than Venezuela; at least 200 of them are in jail, causing a great division in the Armed Forces, mostly in the middle ranks, and added to this is the discontent with the humanitarian crisis and lack of will to resolve it.” Pastrana described the Maduro regime as a narco-dictatorship “that represents a continental threat due to the illegal operations of the powerful Cartel de los Soles led by Diosdado Cabello [president of the illegitimate Constituent Assembly] and Tareck El Aissami [former vice president of Venezuela], who is associated with the FARC and ELN guerrillas living in Venezuela, and also linked to 10 Mexican cartels.” This is why Pastrana endorsed Guaidó’s move to enforce Section 187 of the Venezuelan Constitution, which grants Congress the power to authorize international military assistance and “disrupt the usurpation of Maduro, and resolve the humanitarian crisis that each day costs people’s lives in Venezuela ”last_img read more

Wisconsin basketball rosters see shake-up

first_imgWednesday was an active day for the University of Wisconsin basketball teams, as both the men’s and women’s squads shook up their respective rosters.For the men, Verona Area High School star Brett Valentyn announced he will walk on to the squad this year and is guaranteed a spot on next year’s team, while guard Devin Barry will likely not return to the team.”I’m just real excited about joining the UW program,” Valentyn said in a phone interview Thursday. “I just hope I can help the team out and make an impact on the team to aid them in picking up some more wins.”Valentyn, a 6-foot-4 point guard, was a unanimous first-team All-Badger South Conference selection, averaging 11.0 points, 5.8 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals a contest. He will join a recruiting class including guards Trevon Hughes and Brian Bohannon and forward J.P. Gavinski.Barry, meanwhile, saw limited action as a reserve last season, seeing action in 10 games. He scored his only point of the season on a free throw at home against Penn State.Meanwhile, UW women’s head coach Lisa Stone announced today that sophomore guard Akiya Alexander will not return to the team next season.Alexander was academically ineligible this past semester. She averaged 4.4 points and 1.6 assists and 17.3 minutes in 13 games this season.The 5-foot-9 guard from Evanston, Ill., asked for and received her release. She plans to transfer to Southern Indiana, a Division II school in Evansville, Ind.”We certainly hope Akiya will be able to use her talents in another program,” Stone said. “We appreciated her contributions and missed her this past semester. I am sure she will be a major contributor at Southern Indiana.”Alexander is the second member of the team to depart this spring, after sophomore Shari’ Welton requested and was granted a transfer in late March.— UWBadgers.comcontributed to this report.last_img read more
