Yeah, no one could ever want to protest a socialist government that gave the people hyper inflation and starvation..
Nope..It's all the CIA.
I heard that the CIA took over Maduro's brain and made him use the military to prevent humanitarian aid from being distributed to the starving citizens of Venezuela.

Let me get this straight, Venezuela is out of power for a few hours and we need to invade.
How many months did it take for Puerto Rico to fully restore power?
Venezuela's disputed president Nicolas Maduro, meanwhile, blamed the blackout as an “electrical war” perpetrated by the United States without providing any proof, the latest sign of a dictator who’s losing the grip over the country.
Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez echoed Maduro and said right-wing extremists are causing mayhem in the country at the behest of Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, a claim mocked by the senator on Twitter.
“My apologies to people of Venezuela,” he wrote in a tweet. “I must have pressed the wrong thing on the ‘electronic attack’ app I downloaded from Apple. My bad.”
The electrical system – once the envy of Latin America – has suffered years of mismanagement that was exacerbated amid dwindling financial resources that made it difficult for the government to continue subsidize the people’s electricity bills.

If that's what happened in Venezuela, they did a craptastic job. No one wants to do business there because the government is prone to outright seizure of assets on a whim. You cannot make any money off that for any reason as a trans-national. You're prone to lose everything. If the purpose of that is to exploit for profit, there is none to be had.
