RERUNNING THE IRAQ WAR:

Venezuela: European Union nations set to recognize opposition leader Guaido as Maduro deadline runs out (Deutsche-Welle, 2/03/19)

The deadline set by seven EU nations for Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro to call new elections is set to run out Sunday. Germany, France, Britain, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and Belgium have said they will recognize opposition leader Juan Guaido as president if Maduro fails to announce a second vote before the eight-day ultimatum expires.

France's European affairs minister, Nathalie Loiseau, told LCI television on Sunday that "if by tonight [President] Maduro does not commit to organizing presidential elections, then France will consider Juan Guaido as legitimate to organize them in his place and we will consider him as the interim president until legitimate elections in Venezuela [take place]."

In the absence of W, no one even questions that we have redefined sovereignty to mean compliance with Anglospheric norms of democracy, capitalism and protestantism.
