“…assassins to intimidate people and make sure no one rises up”
Suspending the terms of some financial sanctions
“…an embarrassment to the United Nations and a tragedy for the people of Venezuela.”
Follow the money
Winning the stalemate
And just how will we manage that, Joe?
Being a little bit socialist is like being a little bit pregnant
Playing some hardball
“Venezuela is becoming South America’s Iran”
“thanks to hyperinflation, citizens throw out worthless bolivars”
Good luck with that
Certainly sounds like it
“The abuse of military officers has grown because they represent a real threat…”
Sadly, not a story from the Onion
What’s he got left?
“…it is urgent to resume the [progressive] initiative more vigorously and effectively.”
“…the government decided to completely trample on the principle of the rule of law”
“…to instil fear in the population and to maintain social control”
Dirty deeds done very expensively
Man, that Trump fellow certainly gets around
Yes, it’s THAT bad
“I hope my father is seeing me from up above, fighting.”
Getting hard to make a dishonest living
Is this the beginning of the end of reform?
“This will be a touchstone of disastrous policies for decades to come.”
“I really feel like these people have a savior complex.”
How could this possibly go wrong?
“Vladimir Putin detests Nicolas Maduro.”
Not the war we need
Who is in charge here, anyway?
But not Guaido… yet
“It’s good to know that important allies like the U.S. are also evaluating the option.”
Plus: Bonus dunk on Hillary.
“If Maduro doesn’t step aside we will have a Syria there eventually.”
No longer serious
“Why do [our leaders] seem to care more about Venezuela than they care about this country?”
Guaido stands nearly alone at home
“He was headed to Havana.”
“You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody.”
Misplacing the blame
“What have we seen so far? Absolutely nothing.”
