    Civil War is breaking out in Venezuela as we speak. Venezuela's military plowed an armor vehicle through a crowd of protesters. This is what the left wants here:

    Here we are. On the long-expected brink of it. Tomorrow should be the crossover point. But we're getting two different tones of unrest via the videos... Unmistakable violence against The People. And sort of the same casual strolling-around, stone-throwing, and animated taunting by both sides, like we've been seeing. No massive fires.

    The move to physically oust Maduro by the sympathetic-to-the-cause Military was scheduled for tomorrow. But it began today for some reason. That might be the root of some of the confusion.

    Time tested RULE ONE of seizing power in banana republics:

    Take control of radio and television!

    Use EVERY weapon at your disposal to neutralize whatever military are guarding them.

    I havenít followed this situation too closely, just remember toilet paper being the first casualty 18-24 months ago. I keep a 2008 $100 trillion note from Zimbabwe along with my personal stash of SHTF cash as a reminder of what hyperinflation can do.

    20,000 Cubans being used as protection force for the tyrant, but like it was said, he's a communist and the new good guy is a socialist who has no money and no economy so you all know this will eventually be on our dime. Maybe that is why we haven't done much to help, it's like choosing from two bad boats, both have holes in the bottom. Socialism is all these southern hemisphere nations know, they were born into it and that is what they bring to us when they find their way here, they think we or someone else should feed and house them. I don't feel that way at all and we don't need any of them here. I think we have enough already and our own people are suffering because these crooked politicians are handing out our tax dollars to people who are not authorized to be receiving it. I can't understand how all our judicial and others in high places continue to steal our tax dollars to hand it out to these people invading us.

    If our loyal ally Colombia asks for our help securing their borders and ensuring this doesn't spill over, we should do so, but otherwise, we should let this play out.

    We're in a no win situation in this. If we sit back and Russia steps in to help Maduro, then Trump is staying out of Putin's way and is a Putin puppet. If we intervene, Trump is a war monger. If we don't step in and neither does Russia and things don't go well for Maduro's opposition then Trump will be blamed for every death. Like I said, Trump is in a no win situation.

    I see your point, but that's all the more reason not to risk US military lives, unless this spills across the border into one of our allies' turf. He will definitely get blamed for any US military deaths.

    If the Russians start moving naval forces into the Caribbean, however, then we might have to send something out to counteract them. There's no reason for the Russians to patrol the Caribbean.

    They'll have one hell of a base in the Americas with Venezuela. They need to back out. Kennedy about went to war over Cuba--Venezuela is another base with access to the sea, with great oil reserves. Russia and their stooges from Cuba need to be OUT!
