    If Herr Trump were an exterminator, I’d learn to live with the bugs.

    Not just sanctions. The US has been pursuing regime change in Venezuela in many ways, including financing the abortive coup.

    Darth Cheney: [In response to “Do you think the American people are prepared for a long, costly, and bloody battle with significant American casualties?”] “Well, I don’t think it’s likely to unfold that way, Tim, because I really do believe that we will be greeted as liberators. I’ve talked with a lot of Iraqis in the last several months myself, had them to the White House….The read we get on the people of Iraq is there is no question but what they want to get rid of Saddam Hussein and they will welcome as liberators the United States when we come to do that.”My belief is, we will, in fact be greeted as liberators.Meet The Press with Tim Russert. (March 16, 2003)JEEZUS!! What comes around goes around…

    “THEIR ECONOMY IS A MESS, THANKS TO OUR SANCTIONS” – go away! Venezuela was already in turmoil and an economic crisis when Hugo Chavez was still there, and no sanctions in effect, on the contrary. The US sanctions started much later, in 2017, when Maduro was already president for more than four years and the situation of Venezuela had went even worse. Of course, the sanctions didn’t help the economy, but they weren’t the reason for the autocratic government (which became a militaristic Führer-state without balance of powers already under Chavez), the bad economy, the widespread corruption, and the failure of Venezuela’s oil production. The US sanctions were even against the own economic interest of the US, as Big Oil made big business by importing Venezuela’s crude, refining it and selling it back to them. It was a 20 billion dollar business p.a. (as of 2016). Note, that the sanctions were no sanctions of the world against Venezuela, but limited to the US. South America, East Asia and the EU didn’t stop trading. The awful situation in Venezuela is caused essentially by the Chavez-Maduro-regime.

    Their economy is NOT a mess because of our sanctions. There are over a hundred other countries they can do business with.

    It’s interesting that Trump cries fake news all the time until the MSM parrots the administration’s propaganda. The US was out to get Chavez (and other Latin American countries) since they refused to toe the neoliberal line. Chavez was immensely popular in Venezuela and won elections that were characterized as being more free than those in this country. He was popular because the government’s social welfare program did well helping the poor. He was hated by the rich in Venezuela because he nationalized the oil industry. When he was detained in a US engineered coup there were massive protests. There was a time when Venezuela was sending heating oil to poor families in this country. Maybe the US should stop trying to dominate the world and really become a defender of freedom.

    Panel 3 is the only one that matters.
