In his big President's day speech, President Trump warned the military not to attack the food convoy. Sounds like it's arrived early.


Or as planned.


I don't believe in all the theatrics and playing games while an entire population suffers. If Maduro is the problem, get rid of him with a precision cruise missile. Bring in the other guy, get relief to citizens, and start re-energizing the economy.


Sooooooo, guess who you sound like.......

Okay but Guiado won’t re-energise the economy, he advocates for the same shock therapy policies that absolutely crippled Russia for about 15 years after the Soviet collapse.

If anything it’d only make things worse

Well, if that's the case, we can just ignore Venezuela totally and refocus on making America greater.

Should have started with that.

Go ahead and extend that logic to any nation other than ours.

Can't fix our house if we're spending money destroying others'.

Your post history would certainly tell a different story but w/e.

Assassinating leaders of populations and nation building is a tried and true tactic of the D party.

Well in that case why interfere in the first place? Literally makes no difference if Maduro, Guiado or Ronald McDonald is in charge.

I always wondered how Venezuela of all places is a threat to America. They don’t seem much of a threat to anyone.

U.S. taxpayers are sending $56 Billion in assistance to leaders of other countries this year. Apparently WE LIKE helping other nations. It's too bad most of it is squandered by leadership of the recipient nations.

So, from my understanding Venezuela collapsed because we embargoed all profits from their oil companies. The us was the only place set up to refine Venezuela’s oil so they had no other markets. Then we sanctioned them and stole all their money held in the us and Britain. This left them with little money, and no way to make more money driving their people into poverty and hunger. Then we put Elliot Abrams in charge as our envoy to Venezuela, who was the one in charge when we created the coup in Argentina, where he snuck weapons and ammo in through an aid convoy. We impoverished their people, destroyed their way of making money, then offer them an aid convoy and pretend we’re the good guy.

There are dictators and hungry people all over the world, but you don’t see us helping out or demanding regime change there. Wonder why. 86% of Venezuelans polled said they wanted no intervention by the US or other foreign powers. Wonder why we’re not listening to them. The majority of Venezuelans had not heard of guaido several months ago. He won no election. He went to school in the US and was groomed to be a neoliberal puppet in Venezuela. He already plans to let us oil companies take over, and to enact sweeping privatization of Venezuela’s resources.

This is all straight out the cia handbook of standard South American friendship and development. Wonder where we’ve seen this before.

Venezuela in your post might as well be any of our conflicts post WWII.

At least in the sense our conflicts haven't for the most part dealt with threats to us... At least by sovereign governments and not fringe groups.

I think the U.S. is looking at is as an AMERICA humanitarian crisis. There's something about North America/Central America/South America that makes us view each other as family. (Same last name in common "America")

Nah, Grenada was totally ready to singlehandedly invade and annex all of America.

Well one thing many Central and South American nations have in common is they have either at one point been occupied by the US or pillaged by US fruit cartels.

I guess someone forgot about Venezuela until now.

Surely your figure is one country.... Or group.

We've spent 6~ trillion post 9/11 in conflicts alone.

We all know we have allies we send money to far beyond the Middle East.

56 billion ain't close to money we send abroad.

Thanks for the valuable education! I'm glad you have your finger on the pulse and history of Venezuela.

It's funny you mention Eliot Abrams. Here's an article that was published a couple hours ago by the Washington Post.




CARACAS, Venezuela — The Latest on the political crisis in Venezuela (all times local): 7:00 p.m.

A U.S. envoy is heading to Colombia as part of a mission to send food and other emergency supplies to neighboring Venezuela amid a deepening political and economic crisis there.

The State Department says Special Representative Elliott Abrams will lead a U.S. government delegation transporting humanitarian supplies from Florida to Colombia in military aircraft.

The delegation leaves Saturday from Homestead Air Reserve Base south of Miami.

The U.S. appointed Abrams as part of an effort to pressure embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to step down and turn over power to the opposition head of the National Assembly.


Sounds like Elliott Abrams is going to imbed himself in the convoys, and dare Maduro's forces to strike.

At least their name is threatening.

Awfully close to grenade.

Can't take a chance.... Preemptive strike just to be safe.

I was wondering why the right cares so much about Venezuela all of a sudden and not other areas in South America where the same exact crap is happening. I was wondering if they all of a sudden grew a heart, then I looked into it.

Ahhh..there it is..OIL.
