Violence has broken out in Venezuela as opposition groups, led by Juan Guaido, attempt to bring in foreign aid against the will of President Nicolas Maduro.

3. PBS? I wasn't aware they post anything in this forum.

 

But curious how some posters haven't had anything to say about Venezuela until the Stalinist regime got knocked back on its heels.
