Venezuela

Maduro is, of course, a monster and a dictator. Venezuelans are suffering horribly. Chavismo is a disaster, like any socialism. Maduro is only in power because Putin sent in his mercenaries to prop up the dictatorship.

But I also believe that the US should do absolutely nothing whatsoever. Latin Americans need to be left alone to experience their socialist fantasy to the very last drop. Sanctions, the acceptance of Guaido, that’s all great but nothing beyond that.

They are going to blame the US no matter what because without this easy bugbear, who’s there to blame? Like the Estonian actor said in the video I posted recently, “When my father hammered nails and hit his finger, he’d yell, fuck USSR! Now there’s no USSR, and when I hit my finger with a nail, I don’t have anybody to blame.”
