La oposición venezolana ha convocado el día de hoy a una marcha multitudinaria en todos los rincones del país, para demostrar el descontento generalizado y el agotamiento de los recursos democráticos para contrarrestar el régimen que ha llevado al país más rico de la región a la más honda miseria, tras 17 años de escalada tiranía.

[OP-ED]: La madre de todos los ‘blufs’

 04/19/2017 - 08:02
Afortunadamente, no es solo el pánico lo que se expande, también lo hace la resistencia, que cada día crece y se fortalece. Y eso es muy bueno.
Spanish

Sí, eso es lo que retórica recalentada de Washington sobre Corea del Norte –a la que el país asiático responde en tonos igualmente belicosos – es en realidad: una sucia guerra de palabras.

Yes, that’s what the heated rhetoric coming from Washington about North Korea –and being responded to in no less bellicose tones by the Asian country – is: a nasty war of words. Rest assured that no bullets, no rockets, no mother of all bombs, not to mention atomic weapons are about to be fired, dropped or exchanged. Which, of course, is great.
