Scott advocates for U.S. military action in Venezuela


President Donald Trump has stated on several occasions that a military option against Dictator Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela is on the table, Republican legislators like Sen. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Rick Scott, all support the president’s possible military action against the Maduro regime

During his address to the American Enterprise Institute on Venezuela, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) advocated for U.S. military intervention to deliver much-needed aid to the Venezuelan people.

Scott believes that the if “evil” Maduro regime is allowed to stay in power, it would show a “failure of leadership” from American leaders, and would lead to “disastrous consequences.”

But so far, sanctions alone aren’t stopping the Maduro regime and the United States needs to start considering the use of military assets to bring aid to the millions of starving and sick Venezuelans. And I call on all of our allies and those supporting Guaido to help us in this effort.

Let me repeat that: the United States MUST consider the use of military assets to bring aid to the people of Venezuela.”-Sen. Rick Scott

While Scott is saying that the only option left in dealing with Maduro is to send in the military, he firmly believes that sanctions should continue, if they continue to prove to be fruitful.  

There is only one option left to get aid to the people of Venezuela. It is something that no one is willing to talk about.

Here are more excerpts of Scott calling for military force in Venezuela:

It is becoming clear that we will have to consider the use of American military assets to deliver aid. Maduro and his thugs have left us no choice.

And if military force on the part of the United States and our allies in the region is necessary to rid us of the scourge of Maduro and his thugs, then we cannot rule it out.
