The really sad thing about what all is going on down in Venezuela, is that the actions like this, will ultimately hurt Venezuela in the long run.
Consider this, take a look at what companies are targeted and taken over by the government, and the equipment that are being used, or the property
that is owned and kept up by them. The government goes in takes and does not give fair compensation, ultimately will meant that either Venezuela has
a good infrastructure, that will be able to do the repairs and or keep things running or ultimately end up in a position where its infrastructure is
starting to crumble and no way of repairing it, as many businesses will be very shy about getting involved in that country, to the point of refusing
to do business.
Chavez has made it very clear with his actions that he wants to cut all ties with the US, so the companies that are in the US ultimately will need to
pull out and let them deal on their own, either selling off assets that they own in Venezuela or risk losing them to the Chavez government. And in
the end, it will be the people of Venezuela that will pay the price, as they will have to bear the brunt of the actions of Chavez for years to come.
While it is questionable about some of the actions of the companies that are operating in Venezuela, 2 wrongs do not make a right, and this is just a
money grab by Chavez. The people will have to decide on when they have had enough and hope that the few elites there, will also agree and replace him
with someone a lot more globally minded, and not with just a few governments around the world.
