Is A Coup Underway In Venezuela?

WNU Editor: I have seen my share of uprisings, and this is the real thing. The next 24 hours will be critical on what happens to the Maduro government, and the success (or failure) of this coup attempt. I personally think this coup attempt is happening too soon. The Army leadership is still loyal to the Maduro government, and they are critical if the opposition want to get rid of Maduro. I was also surprised to see opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez on the streets standing beside Juan Guaido. He was in prison, but freed when his supporters stormed the prison to release him this morning. He is enormously popular in Venezuela, and his support for the uprising will rally a lot of support.
