Humanitarian aid is often a Trojan horse contributing to regime change when offered by US NGOs

The call for humanitarian aid to help a suffering population in Venezuela is nothing new, but has always been rejected by the government of President Nicolás Maduro.
This is made to appear unreasonable and almost crazy in the corporate media as this aid could help save lives and fill hungry bellies. But in this case, and in the current geopolitical circumstances, there are good reasons to "look a gift horse in the mouth".
This is especially true when such gifts are really Trojan horses that lie behind the apparent charitable intentions of NGOs, such as USAID.
The aid currently waiting on the Colombo-Venezuelan border in Cucutá is stamped with the US flag and is being organized by USAID. This humanitarian aid had been given the green light to enter Venezuela by the "interim non-elected president" Guaidó. However, the road leading across the border has been blocked by containers and a tanker truck so that this aid cannot enter the country.
With the aid being offered almost as a poisoned chalice by the US to Venezuela - while Trump's "military option" is still on the table to attack Venezuela - it is more than reasonable to assume that this Trojan horse will also come with operatives ready to sow dissent or even violence in the country.
To better understand this decision by the Maduro government, watch the following video from The Corbett Report that explains in detail why humanitarian aid is rejected or often received with suspicion by many governments around the world.
