Juan Guaido's Bogus Adventure
Sometimes the headline tells you more than the article.
A real man of the people, that Guaido.
Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido left the country to start an international tour that includes meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, according to people familiar with his plans.
Guaido is already in Colombia and will meet with President Ivan Duque Sunday afternoon, Duque said on Twitter. He plans to attend an international conference against terrorism on Monday in Colombia at which Pompeo is due to speak.
Let's just ignore Guaido's problem with corruption for now.
Before rubbing shoulders with billionaires in a mountain chalet, Guaido will meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Which brings us to headline #2.
During a joint press conference with Duque, Pompeo said “we applaud the way Colombia responded to the demonstrations, with professionalism, respect for human dignity and calling for national dialogue.”
Our commitment is to respect human rights and the rule of law. We applaud the way Colombia responded to the demonstrations, with professionalism, respect for human dignity, calling for national dialogue.

Authorities’ attempts to violently suppress the largely peaceful protests killed at least three people and injured hundreds.
According to the Committee for Political Prisoners, more than 1,000 peaceful protesters were unlawfully arrested.
