Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro told his army to prep for “threats” from the United States.
The starving citizens were issued rabbits to eat in order to get up their strength. However, the kind hearted people did not kill and eat the rabbits, but rather kept them as pets.
He also told his army to secure “rifles, missiles, and well-oiled tanks” in preparation for war. It wouldn’t be a war though, it would be a slaughter. The army is a skeleton army!
Maduro made the declaration Monday during a military exercise in the city of Maracay, two days after the Trump administration signed new restrictions imposing bans on the entry of some Venezuelan government officials and their families into the U.S.
He stated, “We have been shamelessly threatened by the most criminal empire that ever existed and we have the obligation to prepare ourselves to guarantee peace.”
The Venezuelan president, wearing military garb, also said he wanted prosperity for his country, but added “we need to have rifles, missiles and well-oiled tanks at the ready…to defend every inch of the territory if needs be.”
Nearly two weeks ago Maduro encouraged people to start eating rabbits for protein as Venezuela faces a severe food shortage. After being given the rabbits, many people who took part in a pilot project for the rabbit-eating initiative placed bow ties on the bunnies, kept them as pets and cuddled with them in bed.
Perhaps he should spent more time and money on feeding his people and making sure they have livable conditions under his dictatorship rather than attempting to go to war with malnourished people who would rather cuddle with a bunny than to kill it.
Low supplies of food and medicine are leaving millions of people starving and desperate for medical treatment. A study published earlier this year reported that roughly 75 percent of Venezuelans lost an average of 19 pounds in the last year due to food shortages, Fox News reported.
