Brazil's government on Saturday issued a statement saying it recognized Venezuela's Congressional leader, who opposes President Nicolas Maduro, as the rightful president of Venezuela.

Maduro, who started a second term as president this week, has found himself increasingly isolated as countries around the world have called his continued leadership illegitimate.

Juan Guaido, the head of Venezuela's opposition-led Congress, said this week he was prepared to assume the country's presidency on an interim basis and call elections.

Who does the military back there?

The government should exist to serve people...not the other way around.

Maduro has corrupted the generals, but the lower ranking officers and enlisted men are ready for regime change. The Venezuelan police are corrupt as hell, and thus support Maduro.

This situation could have similarities to France's revolution where the lower ranking officers and enlisted men joined the people in breaking down the Bastille. But it would take a great deal of bloody violence.

The Venezuelan army would presently have trouble getting guns. 100,000 submachine guns for Maduro's opposition would make a huge difference.

The Venezuelan people need hope and change. I wish Maduro would just give it up.

On Monday, dozens of Venezuelan National Guard personnel stole arms from two Caracas units, kidnapped four officials, and recorded themselves in a northern slum urging people to join them in rebellion. The videos circled social media but shortly after, the government announced that 27 dissenting officials had been arrested.

That same day, hundreds of residents took to the streets as protests burst out in western slums across Caracas in the afternoon, continuing well beyond midnight.

Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday called Maduro a "dictator with no legitimate claim to power" and backed the opposition protests as "a call for freedom."

On Tuesday night, spontaneous protests erupted in more than 60 neighborhoods across the capital and in interior states, many of them repressed by security forces with tear gas bombs and rubber bullets.

In the state of Bolivar, protesters burned the statue of late leader Chavez, with footage of the incident going viral on social media.
