But you and I might have different opinions.

I have seen firsthand the devastation that is done under the umbrella of that piece of garbage 'world agency'. Why were Bosnian Serb death squads able, unfettered, to murder more than 8,000 men and boys in a few days, under the noses of United Nations troops legally bound to protect the victims? Who delivered the UN-declared ďsafe areaĒ of Srebrenica to the death squads, and why?
OAS sponsored solution would be best, whatever that might be. OAS would be a good way to build a consensus.

Knowing OAS probably means I need to get out more.
I think they have repeatedly condemned Maduro.

Funny coming from a Russian whos country supports every despot in the world since the end of WWII. Just look at the world leaders Russia supports then and now. Some of those countries needed walls to keep their own citizens from escaping! Now that's something to wink at. Oh and let's not forget about Ukraine.
Arab Spring and gaddafi happened under obamos watch, things went exactly like he wanted. Radicals won the day. Let's not forget he secretly sent billions of dollars to radical, terrorist supporting Iran in the dark of the night.

It doesn't matter. Nothing will change, they're trading one socialist for the other. Maduro is a dictator, a jackass and needs to go, but a regime change itself will not change anything. The same socialist economic policies will be enforced by the new regime.

just wondering: anybody know if Sean Penn, Danny Glover or Tim Robbins have weighed in recently on the Venezuelan Worker's Paradise? i only ask because i seem to remember those guys being quite vocal about lecturing the rest of us regarding how stupid we were for failing to appreciate the genius of Ooogo Chávez and how we were all paid off by Big Oil anyway. oddly, a Google search now reveals nothing, nada, from The Hollywood Brain Trust.

Edit: starting stop watch on first post claiming it was oil prices and not Marxism that ruined the richest country in South America.

I especially liked this little pearl, found on socialistappeal.com. I had gone to this site to check on the Marxist credentials of Allan Woods, mentioned above, when I saw it. turns out that Woods writes for both sites and is the political editor for one of them. interestingly, it seems that socialistappeal uses the terms socialist & Marxist interchangeably.
makes you wonder if Karl Marx referred to himself as a 'Marxist'.

If any of that was to be true it would just prove that out election system is garbage and our politicians are morons.
