The widespread protests against Nicolas Maduro’s brutal socialist regime turned violent Tuesday, when an armored vehicle controlled by Venezuela’s military plowed into a crowd of demonstrators.
“Emboldened supporters of opposition leader Juan Guaido brutally clashed with Venezuelan security forces as dramatic footage from Caracas showed a military armored vehicle plowing into the crowd,” reports Fox News.
“The armed forces have taken the right decision,” Oppositon leader Juan Guaido said Tuesday after reports that some members of the military were defecting from the regime. “With the support of the Venezuelan people and the backing of our constitution, they are on the right side of history.”
