61. There is no shoring up Venezuela

 

It is a kleptocracy, and that's the way that the Chavistas like it.

They will do anything to hold onto power. To quote the Game of Thrones, "He would see this country burn if he could be king of the ashes."

Millions flee. A huge brain drain. Do the Chavistas care? NO! They say, "Good riddance! Who needs doctors, teachers, nurses, and engineers anyway!"

Thousands are dying. Malaria, diphtheria, typhus... disease that most countries rarely have more than a few cases each year. Children dying of malnutrition. No insulin. No antibiotics. No ASPIRIN? Women giving birth on filthy floors... or donkey carts. God forbid, you look at what has happened to mental health facilities in Venezuela. IT IS SICKENING. But Chavismo says, "No! This is all propaganda! Led by the CIA and Colombia, who is jealous of Maduro's dancing prowess!"

Cuba has been in Venezuela since 1999. Venezuela is huge in debt to China (who is now cutting its losses) and Russia (who won't lend another ruble) There is no beach head. Even Nicaragua has had enough. Outside of Bolivia, Maduro's only friends are Iran and Syria. There is ZERO threat to our national security.
