In Cuba they are still driving cars made in the 50's. Venezuela (a country with some of the largest oit reserves in the world) they are starving in the streets.Europe is failing in spite of Uncle Sam paying for most of their defense since WW2 as unfettered immigration is bankrupting them with social programs. Those idiot who don't learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it. Let's make sure it's not us.

economy collapsed long ago though ignorance and fraud. CITGO is still open right? PDVSA owns them. We could have seized those assets. The only thing the US had done until last month was blocked the accounts of Maduro, his family and his cronies that stole the country blind while their people starved. Read more and post less.

You're the dumb ass. The type of Financial sanctions imposed on the country are a swift death blow..

It only takes a few months to wipe out an economy that relies on a single resource by cutting off access to all credit to fund production. It's pretty simple. Plus the sanctions blocked CITGO from sending profits/dividends back to Venezuela. The result is essentially the same as seizing assets. We've basically wiped 7% from their GDP overnight.

You probably know a lot about oil but you don't know shit about finance. You're out of your league on this one junior.

I'm just someone who's been around for a few decades and I've always tried to pay attention to what is going on and why. I never take umbrage at anyone else's opinion... I understand that we each bring different life experiences to the table when making our observations. I will confess to preferring levity over outrage when providing my comments.

cause and effect. It’s naive to think that any imperial world power would allow any paradigm that doesn’t fit its narrative to succeed. I suspect that Venezuela is a mismanaged train wreck but I don’t underestimate the influence the most powerful country in the world has had on exacerbating the mess when it decides to intervene.

At this point in history Capitalism has proven to be the best thing we’ve got but that doesn’t make It sacrosanct. Eventually some other system will replace it.

If we were imperialistic, the largest proven crude oil reserves in the world would be ours...but they are not ours, they are Venezuela's.

Don't be lazy and regurgitate nonsense like that. Post better.

Stop exaggerating. There is true lefty craziness out there like the Green New Deal. But, I know of no one who does or would support Maduro.

Neither of those 2 indicated support for Maduro. They want the US to stay out of it and let the people there decide. I don’t agree with them but as a trumpbot, America Firster, you should be in agreement about not intervening in the domestic affairs of other nations, yes?
