MiamiHerald / Re the Feb. 10 Miami Herald article “Rubio intensifies his Venezuela rhetoric by suggesting coup to oust ‘dictator.’ ”
The arguments and laws that reject and condemn coups are valid. However, in accordance with the principle that laws have exceptions and limitations, it is necessary to recognize the exceptions — in this case, of bloody tyrannies with authorship in crimes against humanity.
In cases of serious political crises, no matter how severe they may be, the use of peaceful negotiations have been designated as the appropriate and recommended solutions.
But when these negotiations fail or are evaded or ignored, the use of international threats and sanctions is legally valid.
