'US Plotting New Coup in Venezuela'

A political analyst says that the US is trying to plot another coup in Venezuela by choosing an ambassador to Caracas that has tried to curry favor with the Venezuelan military.

The appointment of an ambassador by the US "who was really discussing Venezuelan military loyalty and morale … is really a discussion of the potential of a new coup in Venezuela," said Sara Flounders, Co-Director of International Action Center in New York.

In an interview with Press TV, Flounders noted that "Venezuela has been a victim of US coup d'├ętat and attempted coups. President [Hugo] Chavez himself [was a victim] of a direct US sponsored coup in 2002".'
