Did Francis joining Communist Cuba & China in refusing to Recognize Guaido lead to the US-Russian Military Showdown?
The Jesuit Post reported that Pope Francis's Vatican joined Communist Cuba and China in refusing to recognize the "internationally-recognized interim president" of Venezuela Juan Guaido:
Guaido['s]... team was in Italy on February 11 seeking... for recognition, they also met with representatives of the Vatican."
(The Jesuit Post, "Will Pope Francis Save Venezuela," February 25, 2019)
Pope Francis's Vatican refused to recognize Guaido.
If Francis's Vatican had recognized Guaido it is possible that the Venezuelan military backing may have crumbled for the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.
Instead Francis in joining Communist Cuba and China in not recognizing Guaido may have allowed Maduro a lifeline to stay power.
Francis's solidarity with the Communist regimes supporting Maduro, in part, may have given Russia, who is allied with the Marxist Cuba, the political leeway to send military troops to Venezuela.
Is Francis's solidarity with the Marxist countries, in part, responsible for the US-Russian military showdown in Venezuela?
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
