Can US sanctions on Venezuela work?

The US Treasury Department has designated not just Venezuela‘s vital oil industry but its entire banking sector also as the target of sanctions, making it almost untouchable for companies and banks that do business with the United States.

But in the last three months, President Nicolas Maduro‘s government has been busy finding ways to circumvent the US sanctions.

Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza is travelling across the globe, closing economic cooperation deals with countries like Turkey, Syria and South Africa, out of the reach of US sanctions. Not to mention the military and oil industry deals with Russia.

Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman reports from Puerto Cabello, in northern Venezuela.

    good report. definitely shows the effects of ongoing economic crises in venezuela.

    Maduro was to gone long ago, if one was listing to MSM.
    That is not the case.
    Anyone “get it”?

    Every time the subject of Venezuela comes up,
    I feel sick.
    Trump tells his base he wants lower gasoline prices, all the while attempting to squash not one or two OPEC member’s exports, but three; Venezuela, Iran, now Libya.

  4. Duncan Idaho on Sun, 14th Apr 2019 6:25 pm 

    Venezuela and Iran are coming through this—
    Libya is still dealing with Hillary’s chaos and killing.

    Thank God, Europe has still Russia it can rely on, replacing Venezuelan oil:

    Sanctions against Russia’s key energy companies would inevitably lead to a collapse of the European energy sector, BP CEO Bob Dudley has warned, according to Sputnik news agency.

    It is time Europeans learn to understand who the enemy is since 1914, until today.

    Time for an all-Eurasian alliance.

    Marxist BBC Newsnight warns against the largest threat in Britain today: “right-wing extremism”. In northern England “town after town is lost to the right”.

    My comment: I certainly hope so! What did the British Bolshevik Corporation expect? Nobody likes losing his country and that is what is happening to all Western European countries since we are owned by the Americans since 1945.

    It is only a small consolation that America is even faster going down the drain, thanks to the machinations of mobster’s tribe (“the 2%”).

    Forget this idiot Francis Fukuyama and his “end of history”. History could be back, MUCH faster than many anticipate.

    The downfall of the Soviet empire will be a pick-nick, compared to the upcoming downfall of the American empire. Think biblical scenes. EVERYWHERE. A worthless economic system like central planning, can be abolished by a stroke of a pen, but not a multicultural society.

    The Beeb has invited an EDL-defector, a Muslim, a black guy, and two leftist wimmin. That’s going to solve it! The Muslim wants the British state to attack the right-wing leaders. The enemy within the gate. And mobster is laughing all the way to the bank.

    And the internet is fueling it all, the (correct) claim is made, because the system has no control over this medium, not yet at least.

    The West 2019:

    – giving your country away to hostile strangers is “normal”.

    How are you and Asia going to survive without enough oil? You both are the worlds largest importers..

    It only took two years for the soviet union to collapse from an oil shortage..Maybe you should read that secret leaked german army study again.

    You can’t cope with your problems,,Let alone solve them..

    I hope you are raped and eaten when your society falls..

    MOB, the US is committing suicide. Europe is already moving away from America and towards Russia and China, where the future is. Isolation is in the Us’ future, I think.

    Russia has all the oil, NG and other resources it needs for a long time. Asia, well there are many places to get oil and NG besides the US. To list a few:

    Russia
    Iraq
    Nigeria
    Iran
    Angola
    Venezuela
    Saudi Arabia
    Qatar
    Kuwait
    and on and on… There are 74 countries that export oil. Even the Philippines. (WIKI)

    How many US oil wells will still be operating after the US financial collapse? Write off frak oil and Canadian tar for sure. Then we shall see who is left and what the cost of gas will be. $20 gallon? LOL

    BTW: The US STILL imported 7,900,000 bbls/day in 2018. (WIKI) NOT exactly oil independent.

    Peak oil is hitting soon..And the US doesn’t use all of that 79000000 they just import it and refine it and ship it back out..

    You dont know what you are talking about..

    Perhaps (probably) the Notre Dame can be rebuild.

    Now for the meat… who did it?

    Peak oil is hitting soon

    Irrelevant for Europe. We have endless fossil resources for thousands of years and the technology to exploit it and prevent a crash…

    https://deepresource.wordpress.com/2015/04/07/fracking-is-for-amateurs/

    …until we have our renewable energy base in place.

    Flatland Denmark already has 66% renewable electricity…

    https://deepresource.wordpress.com/2019/04/13/energy-storage-in-denmark/

    …They need 200% to completely phase out fossil, to keep the current very affluent level. Subtract from that private car owner ship and replace it with an autonomous driving bus, by turning every road into a virtual railwayline…

    https://deepresource.wordpress.com/2019/04/14/volkswagen-autonomous-driving-prelude/

    …and Denmark will be fine with much less than 200%. The rest will follow.

    Norway declined to develop new oil resources recently for a good reason: because we don’t have to.

    The Scaffolding may be responsible, the covering of the building in metal created opportunity for fire and the high winds of the day seal its fate. Just an opinion but pointing fingers is wishing to make it part of your agenda.

    I recommend to anyone who enjoys the deeper meaning of structures read. The building was a philosophical work with its meaning displayed in its stone.

    JuanP Gaia sock, the United States of America has the fairest and most balanced mass-media on the planet, possibly, all of history. MSM media in the US is vastly reliable and honest than Putin’s and China’s propaganda, which you adore so much. Maybe if you got your information from balanced and reliable sources, such as ZeroHedge and CNN and the NY Times, you might find your extremism moderated and neutered to acceptable levels.

    The US authorities should confiscate and destroy all firearms (including ammunition). The only ones who should be permitted to carry guns are the military and law-enforcement agencies.

  28. makati1 on Sat, 20th Apr 2019 8:41 pm 

    Ah, but…Gaia, the bad guys ALWAYS have guns. What about the: “… 33,000 violent street gangs, motorcycle gangs, and prison gangs are criminally active in the U.S. today. Many are sophisticated and well organized; all use violence to control neighborhoods and boost their illegal money-making activities, which include robbery, drug and gun trafficking, prostitution and human trafficking, and fraud. Many gang members continue to commit crimes even after being sent to jail.”

    https://www.fbi.gov/investigate/violent-crime/gangs

    They are ALL armed and will always be. The estimate is, over 1.5 million members, all armed.

    Sorry? And this coming from a pygmy Chihuahua called MOB? you and your other self, Delusional Davy, are so obviously brainwashed.

    And do you know how ALL of that imported oil is used in the US? Nope! Not a clue. Without it, much of the US produced oil would be useless.

    Get an education and then debate, snowflake. Bought that 22 bullet for your answer to life’s challenges? LMAO

    You need to be admitted to a mental hospital exceptionalturd as soon as possible. The internet is no place for a mental case like you, it only aggravates and exacerbates your condition. If you cannot afford a mental hospital stay, you can always get the attention of the local police dept by acting a little ‘odd’ (shouldn’t pose a challenge for you at all). In the uS, cops often shoot first, and dont feel at all bad or foolish about it afterwords.
