Set up a camp in Colombia, recruit the young men, feed them, train them, arm them then send them to take their country back!
If only we had a organization of men trained to do work like that. Perhaps a regiment with a motto such as “De oppresso liber”.
Excellent and we can call that organization......hmmm let's see......oh I Know! GREEN BERETS! Whata ya think?
I think I would support that Green New Deal.
the die is cast

Venezuela’s US ambassador visits Houston, pledging strong ties to Houston.

This is the US recognized Presidents ambassador. Not Maduro’s Guy.

12 US citizens detained in Venezuela. Apparently may have been born in Venezuela and Maduro blames them for all his problems.

Russia wants to prop up the existing government as it keeps oil production in Venezuela extremely low. If Venezuela was producing at full capacity, the world would be flooded in oil and oil prices would drop to $30/barrel or less. There are a lot of refineries on the Gulf Coast that are set up to run on the heavy Venezuelan crude that they now can't get. They get replacement crude from the middle east and Russia (at a higher shipping cost).

Russia and OPEC would have to cut production severely to have any hope of propping up the price of oil if Venezuela were back in the game. Most of OPEC is going through their cash reserves at a fairly rapid pace. At some point, they will deplete their reserves and won't be able to pay off their not so loyal subjects. That may result in a change in leadership in those OPEC countries. Russia needs the income from their oil exports and would rather sell their oil and gas than see Venezuela selling their product.

Russia is in Syria for a reason. They don't want a big natural gas pipeline going from the middle east (through Syria) to Europe as that would displace large amounts of natural gas that Russia now sells in Europe. Energy is a powerful tool that many fight and die for.

Wondering what roll Trump will play if things get worse.
