    This is highly alarming. Venezuela could become dangerously unstable due to the iron fisted response by its national authorities. Hopefully the United nations is staying abreast of the troubling situation unfolding in Venezuela.

    U.N. - seriously? Aren't they the equivalant of the impotent League of Nations?

    well this is the lawful responsibility of the United nations to address these grave problems unfolding in Venezuela. You cannot expect both the United states and the United kingdom to always be involved.

    Correct, except when, as often occurs, inaction jeopardizes our national interests. It'd be nice to see the OAS take action, but that's not going to occur given its current bent.

    I am not expecting the US or other nations to become involved. It's Venezuela's tragedy, as long as the dictator keeps the tyranny within his own borders. The US could embargo oil purchases from Venezuela - if we still buy their oil. As to the UN - other than providing disaster and famine relief, it remains a toothless polecat, capable of nothing except wagging its finger in the manner of Warren Christopher.

    A cautionary tale for liberal democrats:

    "From high taxes and tariffs to government corruption and a lack of property rights, Venezuela is a study in how not to run a nation. It has sacrificed its wealth on the altar of far-left politics, yet even with millions on the brink of despair, Mr. Maduro continues to blame "right-wing enemies" for his nation's problems."

    There are corrupt oligarchs on either side of the fence. This is more about weak democracies and fragile institutions than political leanings.

    but we are not comparing Venezuela's current government to Mussolini because there is no comparison. It is more compatible with the nazis which was extreme leftist. You extremist liberal hens just detest true facts. Wake up and smell the coffee you nimrod.
