Marco Rubio Sends ‘Bloody Gaddafi’ Tweet, ‘High on Imperialism’ and Still on Twitter

A sitting U.S. Senator, Marco Rubio, is running around like a cowboy threatening people in Venezuela. In his latest tirade, Rubio sent a tweet containing a before and (bloody) after image of Muammar Gaddafi – seen as a graphic ‘warning’ to Venezuela’s President, Nicolás Maduro.

Say Hello to Little Marco - High on Imperialism

Previously, the unhinged senator from Florida tweeted at a general in the Venezuelan military, threatening “you should think very carefully about the actions you take over the next few days in #Venezuela. Because your actions will determine how you spend the rest of your life. Do you really want to be more loyal to #Maduro than to your own family?”

21WIRE’s Patrick Henningsen commented on this out-of-control behavior on yesterday’s Sunday Wire Radio Show. Rubio’s Twitter account is still active after what looks like a brazen violation of its terms of service. Nothing good can come from “Little Marco’s” idea of diplomacy, except maybe the end of his career.

Most everything Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) does these days is related to his self-appointed position as a top leader of the US push for regime change in Venezuela. His decision to Tweet a before and after picture of former dictator Moammar Gadhafi is being seen in that context.

Gadhafi was violently overthrown in 2011 in a US-backed push for regime change. He was ultimately caught by US-backed rebels and publicly killed. Rubio’s Tweet is seen as a “warning” to Venezuela’s President Maduro, who the US is in the process of trying to overthrow.

At best it would be a threat to see Maduro killed Gadhafi-style, or potentially an end-game goal for the Rubio-led push, with US-imposed regime change almost certain to include a violent death for a perceived enemy.

Though Rubio says he previously wanted the US “solution” to Venezuela to be non-military, he now believes that ousting Maduro is important enough that a “very strong argument” can be made to send the military in.
