    Quick facts: Venezuela's humanitarian crisis

    https://www.mercycorps.org/articles/...is-quick-facts



    or several years Venezuela — once the richest country in South America — has been hurtling toward economic, social and institutional collapse, spurring a regional humanitarian crisis and mass migration.
    -------------------
    The UN estimates there will be 5.3 million Venezuelan refugees and migrants by the end of 2019, rivaling the scale of the Syrian refugee crisis. By 2020, there will be 8 million Venezuelan refugees, making this crisis the largest refugee crisis in the world.
    -----------------
    The statistics in Venezuela are startling: Nearly 90 percent of the country’s population lives below the poverty line and more than half of families are unable to meet basic food needs. But what happened to cause these issues?

    I am not a warmonger.

    Just married to a girl from Venezuela.

    Every single one of our friends wants us to take Maduro out.

    Too bad Putin scared off Trump.

    2. You know what would help? Having literally any other economic system than Chavismo.

    Let's look at Romania for comparison. In the 1980s, the socialist dictatorship covered up the economic collapse for as long as they could, and then it came suddenly. Eventually, the people of Romania overthrew their dictator and lynched him. The army did not support him any longer, because there was nothing left to fight over.

    Nowadays, Romania is an ultracapitalist nightmare and a cesspool of corruption... but in contrast to socialism, the people are not starving.

    Ultracapitalism or starvation? Choose.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Hmmmmmmmm ... why do I suspect that searching DU's archives for DUpipo's comments on Chavez, Maduro, and Venezuela would prove highly amusing? Because I have an occasional grasp on the grossly obvious?
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    The Government of Venezuela would have changed a long time ago if the jerkazoids in Hollywood, Washington and those who dwell on sites like DU hadn't been supporting it.
    They made excuse after excuse for people being brutalized and starved; their Socialist fantasies killed a lot of people.

    Now the Bernie campaign has hard lined Socialists ( Stalin is their hero ) who not only want to do that to this country, but want to create gulags here as well.

    But Stalin wasn't a bad, brutal murderous dictator. He was a misunderstood brutal, murderous dictator.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Wait, it was a horrible war crime for Trump to blow up a known terrorist, but it's a bad thing that "Putin scared off Trump" from "taking out" Maduro? The doublethink and cognitive disconnect is mindblowing as always.
