Bolton, Pompeo, and Abrams really deserve to go to the gallows. That country's been mismanaged for over a decade but within weeks of the US supporting a coup it's disaster after disaster. Not at all suspicious :\\ The propaganda is heavy. I’m sure US is behind it That's what you'll get here in the US if Democrats take control

So, just for the record, blame Maduro, who cares? Why doesn't your FakeNews outlet report on these facts? 1. Venezuelans have not been starving. RT reported markets full of food. 2. The Guri dam was SABOTAGED by American agents that Maduro caught. 3. Drones have been recorded dropping leads on power lines to create arcs.
