    We tend to choose the wrong people for office, Venezuelans need to resolve this own their own.

    I can't believe the Military is risking their butt protecting this asshole Maduro, they are really risking destroying their country and literally murdering their own people either directly or directly thru starvation and sickness.

    Maybe Madoro is giving them money but what is the use if they can't buy anything? If the military still protect him to the end then the miltar should also be prosecuted and be eaten alive by the hungry masses.

    Yup I have read about that a few pages back in the older revision of this thread.

    It seems to the soldiers they are just doing their Job El Duro is the elected President by the Venezuelan people, they just want continuity and its human nature in the civilized world to just conform and maintain that continuity Maduro giving them the basics like Toilet Paper and other necessities gives them semblance of normalcy by just following the Maduro.


    Making a move like Joining a Coup needs some extra work and not to mention could be dangerous so its much easier for them to follow Maduro than do all that extra work where they might get killed to oust Maduro.

    My other more cynical theory

    Is that a lot of people who join the military have some sort of sociopath inner barbaric instinct as the Military culture of Manufacturing aggression to train soldiers attract a different breed of people and those people will be content and would not care if they can't buy a 50" TV set or can't have money to go to the movies as long as they can fuck many women and have the guns they will feel empowered and that is all that is important to them.

    But offcourse guns will need repairs and they will need to turn to industrialist and more cultured people to make their guns for them and once that happens thats when they get butchered by the masses, since numerous military personnel around the world loves tattoos that tattoo will be a permanent marker that they once serve and protected a vicious bastard like Maduro and they will forever be targeted for lynchings and public executions.

    I think there is a lot of your first comment with some mixture of your cynical theory. There is definitely people like that in the military, and it only adds to the conformity. They are the ones that actually do the first acts considered barbaric, which then just sets the bar higher and normalizes sickening behavior.

    Those who have pleasure hurting others, will do so. Then others will follow suit, as they see it as normal and conform. Moreover it makes people scared, and they also conform out of fear. Psychmology is terrifying at times.

    Venezuela's Maduro says will win in 'economic war' post-election
    Reuters Staff | May 9, 2018

    [​IMG]

    CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro said on Wednesday he intended to defeat the “oligarchs” responsible for the country’s crisis and that he would win the “economic war” they are waging against the once-wealthy country should he be re-elected next week.


    The unpopular president, who is seeking a second term in office despite an economic and social explosion in the OPEC country, blamed “criminal mafias” for hyperinflation and recession at a campaign rally.

    Despite millions suffering food and medicine shortages, Maduro is expected to win in next week’s vote due to widespread abstention.

    “If you hand me victory on May 20, I swear I will end the economic war,” said Maduro in front of hundreds of people who attended a Socialist Party event in the center of the country.

    “You’ll get your comeuppance in a week’s time,” he said pointedly to critics.

    He accused the business community of raising prices in recent days in order to create more discontent among voters.

    The county’s opposition National Assembly puts annual inflation at more than 13,000 percent in the year to April. Critics blame strict price and currency controls for the mess.

    Maduro threatened stronger measures, while government officials visited pharmacies and supermarkets in Caracas to sanction vendors for selling at high prices.

    Last week, the government took over the country’s largest private bank and arrested 11 top executives, as part of an operation that seeks to curb black market foreign exchange trades.

    The primary opposition parties are boycotting the election, calling it a sham.

    With military desertion happening, how long can the regime hold on? It's not NK, people know it's better elsewhere, and aren't that afraid of death camps, yet
