    It started out a political investment purely to counter the U.S' influence in Latin America rather than a sound financial investment in any shape or form, a very costly one that they're starting to regret.

    They were hungry last summer and flooded the streets. It got worse, the military kept control and the people got too weak. It is disgusting but they have been beaten down by a lack of resources.

    It will only make people fight it becomes Somalia levels of starvation and it will be ugly there will be mass deaths! And no matter how loyal the military to Maduro it will soon colapse even their families are being robbed and the people no longer fear the conesquences.

    We are talking post appocalyptic levels of Anarchy it will sadly interesting if it will go like that or just end up like N.Korea.

    I think N.Korea has reach that level of famine in the mid 90s but there were no mass unrests people just died in the concentration camps maybe the N.Koreans just have a different mindset since that country was built from the ground up thru oppression and poverty.

    Great reason for the US citizenry to retain its capability to defend itself.

    This, and after the protests last summer, it seemed to be at least somewhat stable... despite being in a collapse.. and stable collapse.

    My lady friend is from there (left a year ago). She is some a quiet, beach town, and was relatively safe and doing well, despite the collapse, until the past 2 weeks. In last two weeks, her families businesses have been looted and destroyed.

    Her parents and 2 of her siblings and their families still live there. They were planning to move here at the end of this year or early next year, waiting to see if they could sell more of their businesses and property. However the last 1-2 weeks has them on edge, and they now are planning to move here in 3months, when one of here sisters finishes chemotherapy.

    Very scary... 2 days ago she was actually crying and breaking down about the situation there. She knows 2 people who have been killed in the last year, but now if somewhat freaking out about her family.

    For what exactly? :rolleyes:

    In case you haven't been paying attention, all their best assets have already been transferred to Putin in the last 24 months in exchange for the loans Maduro needs to feed his loyalists. I have no interest for Uncle Sam to engage in Dumpster Diving, especially when that dumpster full of bio-hazard waste is already on fire.

    This is one freakshow that we should watch from distance, with a large bucket of popcorn.
