We didn't cause Venezuela's problems, Venezuela caused their own problems.

We, however, don't have a good track record of fixing other country's problems. Nor do we have a good record of backing the right horse. Best thing we can do is stay home and work on our own problems.

The opening paragraph of the OP.

Quote:
At a campaign-style speech in Miami on Monday, President Trump said the Venezuelan military should not interfere with humanitarian aid coming into the country, or resort to violence, as the U.S. and other nations throw their support behind parliamentary leader Juan Guaidó as interim president over the current leader, socialist Nicolás Maduro.
Yes, it is our responsibility Maduro insists on barring humanitarian aid to the country he helped to impoverish with his socialist dictatorship.

Good idea if the government of Venezuela confiscates all items for itself. Only socialists and especially communist lap puppets use the word "comrade".

This little piece of logic must come from the same part of your brain that told us Bernie Sanders could win the presidency and there are more Republican Governors because of gerrymandering.

Not a word about Maduro's refusal to allow humanitarian aid to help his people. Venezuelans are slaughtering zoo animals to have something to eat but Maduro is more worried about losing his grip on power than his fellow citizens starving.

Democrats love to bray about their virtuous stand supporting economic fairness for the little guy, freedom of the press and a government based on democratic principles. First Chavez then Maduro failed by all these criteria. But now we shouldn't have even imposed economic sanctions on the Cuban dominated Venezuelan dictatorship.

In the early 1930's Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin sent troops to surround Ukrainian granaries cutting off the food supply to the people. The event known as the Holodomor cost millions of Ukrainians their lives to unnecessary starvation. NYT reporter Walter Duranty ignored the holocaust while continuing to heap praise on the socialist dictator. Today, Maduro not only receives the same forbearance as Stalin but the US is blamed for the dictator's failure.

Actually it has eased up a bit as the capitolistas in the country have released formerly frozen assets and are allowing a bit of food sales to go on.
