The US openly supports the self-proclaimed "president" Juan Guaido. They put pressure on European countries to take the same position. But, despite all these efforts, a lightning-fast “victory of democracy” did not happen.
There are two options for further developments. The first - the "revolution" will fail completely, and Guaido will flee somewhere to the West (for example, to London) and become the next "oppositionist in exile." The second option is a US military operation to overthrow the legitimate president Nicolas Maduro. And earlier, before the coup attempt, there were quite a lot of publications that Washington was preparing to start a war in Venezuela.
С economic in terms of such a war, the White House is completely unnecessary. In addition, Caracas is already economically dependent on the United States, as many transactions go through American offshores. But the American leadership has not only economic, but also political considerations.
It can be assumed that US President Donald Trump needs to strengthen his image as a "world hegemon." Shouting about the displacement of the "dictatorial regime", squeezing Russia and China out of the region, destroying one of the last strongholds of socialism - it would seem that it could be better for Washington? The story of the liquidation of the Libyan Jamahiriya shows that this is entirely possible.
The question arises - what to do next? The United States did not succeed in establishing a stable life in the "democratized" countries even at the peak of their power - after the invasion of Iraq.
Intervention in Venezuela will only weaken Washington’s position as a “hegemon”, and US authority in the world will drop. Trump, however, holds an isolationist stance. It is possible that he does not need a “small victorious war”, but a loud fiasco in order to no longer bear “responsibility” for the whole world (which was described by the predecessors of the current American leader). A new round of globalization will be based on other principles. Indeed, it turns out that the situation in Venezuela depends on how events develop around the world.
