Some Americans have a funny definition of "democracy"...

Angela Merkel ruling Germany for 4 consecutive mandates?

Democracy.

Trump becoming president, even though Hillary Clinton had an advantage of 3 million votes?

Democracy.

Opposition in Venezuela does not win majority?

DICTATORSHIP.

Basically, for some Americans, it's only a dictatorship when the left wing wins.

And by "some Americans", unfortunatelly, I'm including DUers.

Venezuela HAS NOT taken over Haiti as "the poorest country in the hemisphere".

In fact, there are several others who are much poorer. Including Peru, Bolivia, and several small nations in Central America.

This "news" has no source. It was said it was a "research" done by "the government". The research has no names, was not published anywhere, and, of course, even a fish must know a domestic research done by a government could not serve to determine in which position other nations are in a ranking of poverty.

Just more propaganda and post-truth shit from US mainstream media.

Venezuela has never been "the wealthiest country" of South America

That's just the new post-truth argument that the US mythomaniac press has taken out of its ignorant butt to deceive even more ignorant people.

In the 1950s, Venezuela already had some of the largest slums of the continent. Petare was everywhere in the media as a symbol of inequality and poverty in Latin America.

Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay are the three wealthiest nations of South America since the 19th century. That hasn't changed and one just has to compare literacy rate, child mortality, and other social indicators to realize that.

That's basic history.





UNICEF: Cuba has 0% Child Malnutrition

The existence in the developing world of 146 million children under five years old who are underweight, contrasts with the reality of Cuban children, recognized worldwide for being outside the social evil.

These alarming figures appeared in a recent report from the United Nations Fund for Children (UNICEF), entitled Progress for Children, A Report Card on Nutrition,, released at the UN headquarters.

According to the document, the percentage of underweight children in different region of the world are: 28 percent in sub-Saharan Africa, 17 in the Middle East and North Africa, 15 in East Asia and the Pacific, seven in Latin America and the Caribbean.The table is completed by Central and Eastern Europe, with five percent, and other developing countries, with 27 percent.

Cuba has no such problem

Cuba has no such problems, it is the only country in Latin America and the Caribbean that has eliminated severe child malnutrition, thanks to government efforts to improve the nutrition of people, especially those most vulnerable.
