MaduroThe head of a pastors' network is making the case that Venezuela is becoming the Syria of the Western Hemisphere.

Earlier this week, the United States ordered the withdrawal of its remaining diplomatic personnel from the embassy in Caracas, citing the "deteriorating situation" in the country and a growing concern that the American diplomats might become pawns in the struggle with dictator Nicholas Maduro (pictured), who the U.S. wants to depose.

Sam Rohrer, president of the American Pastors Network, tells OneNewsNow that the situation in Venezuela is very much like that in Syria.

"That effectively is what those who are involved there have eluded to and are effectively saying they're doing," he explains. "When I talk about that, I'm saying China, Russia, Iran, [and] their proxy Hezbollah are all there in Venezuela – and their goal for Syria strategically was to try to pull the United States into that part of the world. They're trying to do the same thing in Venezuela."

Rohrer, Sam (PPN)Rohrer argues the the Trump administration needs to build world sentiment against Maduro.

"The totalitarian dictatorship of Venezuela [under] Maduro and those countries that are supporting him – the Islamic Communist Marxist nations together – are actually the cause of what's taking place," he states. "So building world sentiment against Maduro is something that ought to be done too, hopefully to bring them to their knees. But that we will have yet to see."

The APN spokesman says if President John F. Kennedy believed in October 1962 that a Russian base in Cuba was freedom-threatening, then what's happening in Venezuela is many times worse.
