This is madness.
In a shocking recording revealed by El Nuevo Herald, Venezuelan Army Division Gen. José Rafael Torrealba Pérez was heard ordering the preparation of snipers to be used against protesters.
The Miami Herald reported that the meeting in which this terrifying order was given took place in the last week of April.
The general also talked of how he believed the Venezuelan army needed to prepare for what was coming down the road.
“Begin to make preparations with those individuals that can serve as snipers, beginning with psychological and aptitude tests,” Torrealba said, according to a translation of the recording by the Herald.
It would appear that the general believed that the army will need to use those snipers, and he doesn’t want to be caught unprepared.
“There will come a time when we will have to employ them (the snipers) and I want us to be ready for the moment that we have to employ them because the president will not remain at a green (preparation) phase, gentlemen,” he said, according to the transcription. “He (Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro) has already signed a range of operations and as I said here (previously)… we could be at the beginning of a subversive urban war.”

Folks, this is what happens when socialism reaches its logical conclusion — when those in power feel the need to quash those who don’t believe as they do, even if it costs them their lives.
After all, they don’t think like us, so what is their worth?
Sad … but wholly predictable. It’s not like history isn’t full of examples.
