U.S. officials considered a naval blockade against Venezuela during a meeting this month in Washington, according to a report from the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia on Wednesday.

The report quotes Fernando Cutz, a Venezuela specialist for the consulting firm the Cohen Group, who claims to have been at the meeting at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington. Cutz said the group ruled out the possibility of a U.S. invasion of Venezuelan territory but a “low intensity” alternative such as a naval blockade could prove effective if it received international backing.

Invasion - Something - Intensity - Blockade - Scales

“An invasion is not possible, but something of low intensity, such as a naval blockade, could maybe tip the scales [against the regime],” he explained. “However, it would only be feasible if there is support from other countries.”

Latin American nations – with the notable exceptions of states run by Marxists such as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Mexico – largely agree that the socialist regime of dictator Nicolás Maduro must end to restore normalcy to Venezuela, where socialist policies have created a humanitarian crisis and the largest migrant crisis in the history of the hemisphere.
