Leaked documents from the leadership of the Democratic Party reveal that their intention is not to promote any regime change in Venezuela or Iran, and even raises the possibility of reaching agreements such as those signed by former President Obama with Cuba.
“Democrats believe that the best opportunity to rescue Venezuela’s democracy is through smart pressure and effective diplomacy, not empty, bellicose threats untethered to realistic policy goals and motivated by domestic partisan objectives” the document says.
However, it was democratic diplomacy during the Obama / Biden era that allowed Venezuela to fall into the hands of the most extreme Communism without opposition.
The non-interventionist narrative of the Democratic Party regarding its foreign policy seems to point to the opening of negotiation channels between the North American administration with the Caracas and Tehran regimes, and seek to prohibit public funds from being used for actions against Maduro and Khamenei.
In turn, it is evident that several Democratic deputies asked Party leaders to change their foreign policy, including Joe Biden, towards one of negotiation and dialogue with Latin American dictatorships.
This document is going to be presented by Democratic leaders at the Democratic National Convention that will take place, surely virtually, in August, where the candidacy of Joe Biden will be formalized.
The document again highlights the hypocrisy of Democratic leaders. Elsewhere in the text, Democratic candidates are asked to "end our endless wars," affirming their opposition to the War Authorization of 2001 and 2002, through the War Act of 1973, despite being Obama and Democrats who had the opportunity from 2008 to 2016 to disable it but did not.
They claim that military actions in countries like Yemen and Iraq are illegal, despite the fact that both were sanctioned by both Bush and Obama, and it is Trump who has been negotiating with local governments and withdrawing troops since 2017.
The document also requests to change the current policy regarding the Palestinian Israeli conflict, promoting the coexistence of these two groups. However, the same paragraph clarified that the policy of the United States should be to promote the abandonment of the Jewish State of its lands in the area.
"End the occupying Israeli Army; dissolve Israel's illegal settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem; end the Israeli military blockade on Gaza; and end all attacks on civilians, whether Israeli or Palestinian."
This worrying document is signed by Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Speaker of the House, but also has the support of the most radical wing of the Party, such as the Marxist deputy Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez and pro-Iran deputy Ilhan Omar.
