Wouldn’t it be funny

Wouldn’t it be funny if the problems in Venezuela caused problems in Cuba while Cuba tried to prop up Venezuela?  Could be happening.  I will be keeping an eye on this.

It looks like it might be.  I hope for the people of Venezuela that it is.

Man, if the news out of Venezuela gets any darker, we’re going to need miner’s helmets.

The Russians have decided to stick their noses (and some troops and equipment in)

The infrastructure continues to fall apart.

This is a story from a very brave female reporter who has been in Venezuela for some time. It is not very optimistic.

Here is a take from NPR on the current situation.

The US needs to stay out of this mess, but I do feel sorry for these folks.  You notice in the pictures of the average citizens, how they all look so gaunt.

Tragedy

The slowly unfolding man-made tragedy that is Venezuela is horrible.  Sadly, I get the impression that many of the people in Venezuela are waiting for someone to come rescue them.  While I have no problem with the US providing logistical support to those Venezuelans looking to overthrow their current government, I do not want to see the US become directly involved.  We’ve got to stop going out and rescuing people who’ve gotten themselves into these types of situations.

It appears that Russian troops may have been deployed to Venezuela, though for exactly what purpose isn’t clear.  There are many Cuban troops already in the country, and it is alleged that they are keeping Maduro in power.

As protests continue, this story highlights some of the human cost of socialism.  BUT, never forget, a majority of the Venezuelans brought this on themselves by buying into all the promises socialists made. Promises of an easier life and a guaranty that the government would take care of them.  They always promise this.  They never deliver.

Venezuela on the brink

This report suggests that Maduro may be losing his grip on his internal security force.  IMHO, that is the only way he will be deposed.  Time will tell.

Is Russia about to move gold reserves out of Venezuela?  (h/t to Jeff “Inch High” Groves for the link)

Revolution?

Things are developing quickly in Venezuela.  It is unclear if this is the beginning of the end of Maduro or if he can hold onto power.  I hope the former.
