  6. neo7864 on May 4, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    it was staged because he wanted to pin down his opposition lawmaker

    Mire Senor Maduro a lo que ha llegado su política irresponsable, ningún hombre civilizado puede maltratar y condenar a su pueblo a esto.
    Por qué razon: Por dinero? Por una mejor mesa? Sepa usted que es mejor comer pan y cebolla , si es por guardar la dignidad de ser un humano. Consejo, vayase , entregue el mando. Hay 6 millones de Venezolanos que invaden los paises vecinos y de América del Sur. Sepa usted que cada problema que pasa en nuestros paises por problemas de los immigrantes claramente vemos que usted es el responsable. Señor Maduro, vuelva a conversar con el pajarito , estoy seguro que esta vez le va a consejar de entregar el mando. "Azufreee , usted esta oliendo azufre" Se recuerda. Bueno señor maduro, siga el consejo de millones y millones y millones de niños, de abuelitos, de indefensos, de hombres y mujeres que no piden mas que vivir en su pais. Nosotros somos millones de personas que le piden y le dicen…… VAYASE.

    Hunter killer drone failed, we get it next time

  12. Someone on May 4, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    I have notice something weird, u see the lady wearing white in the front in the first camera fotage right? But than why on the second camera fotage she is on the back with another lady than also a man appear wearing a white unform out off nowhere, does the 2 camera fotage is on a different time? Cause if it were the same time the drone should already explode in the first fotage cause it would take a few second for the white dress lady to move in the second fotage but why on the second fotage we heard the explosion again?

  13. Trukie on May 4, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Maduro is a bad person

  14. Sky on May 4, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Venezuela is called a dictatorship despite its presidents are elected, why? Because it’s socialist. Why is US afraid of socialism? Because it benefits the common folk and not the rich – who has the US government in their pockets. Then why is the US common folk afraid of socialism? Because of decades of conditioning and some thinking of themselves as "temporarily embarrassed millionaires".

  15. Cm187 CM189 on May 4, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Everything gets lost in that country. Ask the cartel guys. Guns, drugs, economic migrants and now drones!

  22. MrWasgehtsiedasan on May 4, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Assumption, the drone was disturbed by jammers, however, the channel for the detonator of the explosive device was not disturbed and out of desperation the assassins detonated the bomb.

  23. Franco on May 4, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Amateurs. It wasn’t even close!

  24. Skete Davison's Son on May 4, 2022 at 6:49 pm

  37. Soup GDWinney on May 4, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    The New York Times and their BS reporting again! This is one of the countries biggest, well done, long time established news agencies, and they still can’t get it right.
    How blind and stupid is the world to them? I’ll show you why you need to
    At 1:10 they show the first clip of an apparent explosion. Look around the Pres. We see a lady in white (assuming that’s his wife) Military personnel dressed in brown uniforms with red berets and a couple of men in black suits and ties. Then they show the 2nd clip, stating it’s the same event, with the same explosion, shot from a different angle at the 1:20 mark, but every single person surrounding the Pres is a completely different person. No red berets, in fact there are men in white and blue uniforms now!!
    They can’t even get their own story correct. Who is their editors, who are the reports that do NOT even corroborate their stories to ensure they are providing their views with 100% fact?
    That answer is simple…THERE ARE NONE!! This is JUNK NEWS & folks need to stop supporting it!!
    I stopped watching at the 1:25 mark, b/c I REFUSE to support this kind of BS news, and I encourage you all to unsubscribe and stop supporting this chit too!

    But, as always, that’s just my opinion! :)))

  38. Skete Davison's Son on May 4, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    It flew for 2 mins over him and still missed a football field away? That’s a fake attack.

  39. Kyle Oden on May 4, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    False flag

  40. JOHN RODRIGUEZ on May 4, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    El Gobierno de EE.UU. entregó 20 vehículos todoterreno blindados a Colombia, como parte del convenio que mantiene ese país con el Comando Sur, para realizar operaciones militares y maniobras en el departamento de La Guajira, fronterizo con Venezuela.

    El acto, donde participó el ministro de Defensa colombiano, Diego Molano, y el embajador de EE.UU. en Bogotá, Philip Seth Goldberg, entre otras autoridades, se hizo en el Fuerte Militar de Buenavista, en el departamento de La Guajira.

  41. AgentKodeh on May 4, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    looks like a operation took place to save maduro the drone was flying as if not being controlled allmost like somone raided the place where they are being controlled from took them out blew up the One mid air to prevent to many casualties and the second one blew up after crashing also sounds like a possible mw4 campaign Save a dictator

  42. Saul Aguilar on May 4, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    He probably set that up himself. Looks up at the drone and doesn’t say anything?

  43. Blue on May 4, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Watching this 3 years later, it seems like no big deal now. I’ve been through a lot of drone attacks where I work.
