Oil.Oil.Oil. Venezuela has it. The US wants it.
It’s no coincidence that Venezuela is the one nation that the Surplass of the United States has focused it’s malevolent gaze upon. No other Latin American nation has the oil reserves of Venezuela.
A coup was instigated by the capitalist hawks of the US, when Hugo Chavez was in power. Right-wing elements were allowed to threaten the life of the President of Venezuela. They violently demonstrated against the democratic government. The capitalist media in Venezuela and abroad condemned the government of Chavez, even though he was remarkably lenient with the fascist right. Those right-wing terrorists failed.
We again see the same tactics being employed against another socialist President, Nicolas Maduro. We can but hope that both he, and the good people of Venezuela, stand strong against the vile forces of corruption, fascism, greed and capitalism.
