    Poor Venezuela dared to defy an empire. And is a sitting on a huge payload of OIL. So, perfect setup for some disaster Capitalism or the more polite way of saying, some Democracy. Nothing worse than having something that an Empire covets.

    Venezuela’s problems are entirely self-inflicted. The government of Venezuela is being advised by CUBAN economic advisors, and sure enough they’ve transformed the economy into Cuban-style socialism and managed to create Cuban-style food shortages and poverty.

    Viva Socialismo!

    I do not think so. Venezuela is a victim of deliberate economic sabotage both from within and without.

    Venezuela chooses who they trade with. They have nationalized their oil, food, banks and many other key industries. They were struggling before the drought and low oil prices that killed their electricity and cash flow.

    Boat, I’m sure Venezuela would be a perfect little American cancer clone if only they hadn’t stop sending their people to your finer institutions of higher learning a dozen years ago.

    Good guess boat. In fact, not only am I stateless, I forfeited my “human” status bout 5 years ago. Plausible deniability and all that.
