    I feel bad for the people, they are going to have tough times ahead, for quite a while I suspect. In the meantime we should start sending food aid to them, as well as medical aid.

    Venezuela has been on the verge of collapsing for a while. Its just now theyve gone past the tipping point where they could pretend it wasnt that bad.

    ITs either going to collapse or a Civil War is going to start. Riots in the streets are just the first step, that country is just horrible.

    It's kinda odd how facist regimes manage to cover up such brewing instability. You'd think this wouldve happened years ago.

    In the coming decades our negligence concerning South America is going to come back to bite us in the butt when multiple governments start a cascade of toppling over. Brazil's impeachment of their current leader is only the beginning there as well, given the government regardless of leadership will face problems of legitimacy since their economy is slowing down with no reprieve in sight while graft and corruption still reign supreme.

    I think the possibility of a refugee crisis in America as a result ofthis is very real, and something we are poorly equipped to handle.

    Thats why president Trump is going to build a wall.

    So Luuv hooked me up with a custom rank.

    Which means I only have two more prizes to claim, plus an image sig.

    So that's where we stand.

    But Madero would just seize it all for his cronies, who would them sell everything that they don't use on the black market.
    All the while, the US will be blamed for the squalor created by the Chavista system

    And why would you send money to people to reward them for screwing up their country? The only way they'll learn is by having actual consequences. These people reelected Chavez and then elected his even dumber successor, how else are these idiots going to learn?

    True, unless we distributed it directly, or used UN personnel to make sure it actually reaches the people who need it.
    The Red Cross would be useful in that regard as well, as Maduro would be loathe to steal from them.
    Well, our own Presidente blames America for everything, why should Maduro?

    We think we can make honey without sharing in the fate of bees, but we are in truth nothing but poor bees, destined to accomplish our task and then die.

    oil is cheap atm (ty saudis)

    this is terrible for nations that heavily invest in oil exports for the majority of their gdp

    just look at russia. they had to make a deal with china to keep things running...
    they are pissed at us for our ukrainian intervention, but still, gotta pay the bills

    lets see if the yuan makes a dent on the petrodollar
