...But of these sophisms and elenchs of merchandise I skill not...
Milton, Areopagitica

Except he had found the
standing sea-rock that even this last
Temptation breaks on; quieter than death but lovelier; peace
that quiets the desire even of praising it.

Jeffers, Meditation On Saviors



advisers from the State Department and the Pentagon 
have proposed an assassination plan and a coup:

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro Saturday proposed establishment of a commission for "peace and mutual respect of sovereignty" between the United States and his country to start a dialogue to re-establish diplomatic ties.

one of them the article from which the quote was extracted, the other Yahoo News,
which is an article from AFP (Agence France Presse) which was until the takeover of France by the
 Zionist-neoliberal-fascist-conspiracy more conservative elements of French politics, a fairly honest site for news written with journalistic integrity. But sadly, whatever reactionary dickwads forces put the cartoonish Sarkozy in power, snipped the balls off AFP before they made their move to take over the country.
Which you'd expect. Get the news guys first, then the government. Too messy the other way.
Anyway, the Yahoo article ends with this typical swinish propagandistic trick, where the swine favorite voice is given the last word, so dumbass the unsophisticated reader carries that away from the piece:
The Popular Will, a prominent opposition party, was set to hold a rival demo in another part of the capital, "to repudiate the brutal onslaught of state security and pro-government (vigilante) groups against demonstrators."

However the march was called off due to the "threat from violent groups" that support the government, said Popular Will spokesman Johan Merchan.
This in spite of the body count being heavily tipped the other way, most all of the violence originating in the so-called "opposition", significant caches of nasty weaponry busted among the "opposition" - it's insane to watch.
"Writhing serpent" doesn't even get close to how inhuman and ugly it is.
For a more honest view there's these guys.
