Inside Venezuela’s crisis
From above, Caracas’ skyline still hints at the opulence that once characterised oil-rich Venezuela, but at ground level there’s no hiding today’s reality: people are queuing all night for food and medicine; inflation is with over 700 percent the highest in the world; and murders and kidnappings are spiralling out of contraol – Aljazeera
Venezuela will remain in a state of Crisis until as long as the energy battle between America and Russia continues. Idealogical Subversion will be the tool used to disrupt the government and keep the country unstable. Eventually Venezuela and Brazil will figure out that its simply wiser to align with their North American neighbors than to rely upon someone a world away. A natural alignment of energy security, would be North and South America and Russia or the EU with the Middle East. I would expect the dust to settle there at some point in the not to distant future.
For years Venezuela sold oil %40 under market price to Massachusetts to help the poor. I hope people here will remember this and do something to help these people. Venezuela is a rich country with good people and abundant resources. If it can happen there it can happen here. Peace among men of good will
