The economic war will be fought militarily

President Maduro is convinced the “economic war” is a real war that it should be defeated militarily. He has announced for today a meeting of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces (FANB), the “militancy of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), and “members of the executive” in order to debate a new “especial pilot plan to defeat the economic war.”

According to Maduro this meeting should be the basis of a “Civic-Military High Command” which will “definitively defeat the structures that propitiate scarcity, usury, and speculation.”

The military character of the war was stressed by the president: “The National Guard has a special structure for these types of battles, to fight against smuggling, the bachaqueo, and the economic war in all its forms. (…) We are focused on the economic war and in the defeat, once and for all, of the economic coup under way in Venezuela.”
