    Back in time during sino soviet split, chinese said soviet gave up on cuban crisis. Will be funny to see what they will do to support those communists in Venezuela.

    If Maduro is hated by the majority of Venezuelans then what is the problem... he should have lost the election last year by a majority vote and would not be in power now.

    Yet, there was a free and fair election last year with no violence and no cheating according to impartial international observers... the western countries demanding he step down are not saying he wasn't elected to the position he currently holds, but demand someone who has never received a single vote be recognised as the leader of Venezuela, because they think it should happen.

    It seems the west does not understand some fairly basic aspects of Democracy... but why let facts get in the way of pursuing western interests because they are even talking about civil war so they clearly don't give a shit about the people of Venezuela.

    Right now they might have some problems getting some types of food, but they are clearly not starving... because if they were we would see the children on CNN and the BBC as their bodies are taken away for burial... showing mothers of small dead children wailing about how it is all Maduros fault...

    The west disgusts me...

    A certain member likes to talk up the EU and France about how they are respected and powerful... but this proves the opposite... they are americas bitch and can't even work out that they are being used to replace a democratically elected leader of a country with a dictator that is largely unknown in the country they want to put him in charge of... but that doesn't matter... because they know once in power he will be in their debt for getting him into the position he is in... it worked in the middle east where the Saudi government is not democratic... nobody elects them... and they are western controlled dictators that allow them access to the oil wealth of the region.

    Back in time during sino soviet split, chinese said soviet gave up on cuban crisis. Will be funny to see what they will do to support those communists in Venezuela.

    You don't have communism if the people get a vote to decide the leadership.

    If the Chinese and Russians want the countries they invest in and trade with to trust them, then they have to act to defend cuba and venezuela from the west.

    I mean it is not like the West might start treating Russia and China badly and put sanctions on them... they are already doing that so there is literally nothing to lose. Sanctions from the west might hurt a little bit more, but not helping Venezuela hurts Russian and Chinese future relations with other non western countries more... they need to show that there is an alternative.

    Right now, for developing countries, they can choose to be told what to do and how to do it and effectively slowly get raped by the west as they plunder your countries resources. The alternative is to go it alone which is the option to become north korea and isolated.

    If China and Russia and other countries including Turkey and Vietnam will back Venezuela, then other countries will realise they don't have to accept western terms and privatise everything so western companies can come in and buy up everything of value that can make a profit. These countries can trade with Russia and China and develop and grow but without being told what to do and have western morals forced down their throat.

    With Brazil de-facto out of BRICS, they can't afford to lose Venezuela w/o putting up active resistance, as Cuba, Nicaragua, & Bolivia will be next. India is playing both sides as she doesn't want to be a junior partner to China. Vietnam won't get involved in S. America as she is busy opposing China in the SC Sea & doesn't need to antagonize the US.
    Even if they succeed in ousting Maduro, there'll be a long guerrilla war like in Colombia, Burma & Vietnam. Aristide can then join the French/Brazilian Special Forces or become a mercenary to put his life were his mouth is!

    You know who is the special representative of US at Venezuela ? Elliot Abrams. The one who tried whitewashing the Mozote massacre and aided the genocide regime at Guatemala.

    If a war happens, there will be hundreds or thousands of children and woman who become victims of American-backed murderers.

    I can only laugh about this.

    The first thing i find amusing is your strange and laughable attraction to USA.

    1. Maduro is a typical banana republic dictator. He is a dumb bus driver, has no intellect and ran his country against the wall. He is an idiot. According to you, Maduro was installed by UsA to do just that.

    2. France is not a bitch of USA. We are a bitch of wealth. We want money.

    We profit more if Maduro is gone. Because of that we support his demontation, which already is sucessful. Maduro is international dead. Support from poor regional powers like Bolivia, Russia or Turkey is not worth anything. Russia cant provide basic needs for its own people and already has Syria as expensive pet. It cant afford a 2nd pet. So Situation is like it is. A ripped apart country, starving population and a bus driver as president who cant meet neighbor countries governments, since none calls him president anymore.

    And please spare me the rubbish about democracy. Maduro had no oppossition.

    As for french interventions in South America, i would have no problem to participate.

    We live in 21st century, controlling and maintain drones from french guiana is quite easy.

    No, he is not! Dictators there were all politicians &/ military men. Past profession isn't the only criteria to judge intelligence. Saddam Hussein & Kim were also labeled as "crazy" or "mad man" even though he had a law degree / was educated in Switzerland, respectively. As a former bus driver, he knows his people better than Guido; I never claimed that he was installed by the US, don't put words in my mouth!

A lot- in Asia & Africa. 1 more won't brake the bank, & she invested there a lot more than Russia. They can send Ks of single men as volunteers to fight there as they did in Korea, & as Cuba did in Angola, which denied victory to the US & S. Africa.

    Installing Maduro was great idea of USA then. He ruined Venezuela like a cancer.

    And yes, Maduro is finished. Isolated, no business with economic powers. When your allie is russia...you know you fucked up.

    Look dude...Angola? Poor shithole covered in landmines.

    You have a very strange idea of winning. As you said, we have a very high standard. You are happy to live in the dirt obvious.

    People like you are like a joke for me. Very Happy I huess you never had a lobster in your life.

    No1 installed him, he assumed power after Chavez died, as per constitution, & then got reelected.
    Assad is also allied with Russia & he isn't going to retire anytime soon. Big investments from China,etc. r coming.
    Opponents say the 56-year-old former bus driver has lost touch with his working-class roots, accusing him of ordering mass arrests and starving Venezuelans while he and regime insiders — including the top military brass — line their pockets through corruption.
    But Maduro shrugged off the label of "dictator," attributing it to an ideologically driven media campaign by the West to undermine the socialist revolution started by the late Hugo Chavez.
    He said he won't resign, seeing his place in history alongside other Latin American leftists from Salvador Allende in Chile to Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala who in decades past had been the target of U.S.-backed coups.
    "I'm not afraid," he said, adding that even last year's attack on him with explosives-laden drones during a military ceremony didn't shake his resolve. "I'm only worried about the destiny of the fatherland and of our people, our boys and girls....this is what gives me energy."

    ..Angola? Poor shithole covered in landmines.
    They have the best oil in sub-Saharan Africa + diamonds, gold, etc., & that's why the US used S. Africa, UNITA & FNLA to prevent their independence from Portugal, declared in 1975, from taking hold.

    Now no1 is telling them how to live, the same with Vietnam & Laos- Ms of tourists go there & China invests there as well.
    Venezuela has large well equipped military & won't need a lot of Cubans or Chinese, at least in the beginning.

    I huess you never had a lobster in your life.
    I had a lobster in Maine & crab legs in Virginia. I also had black & red caviar in USSR & USA, & been on a couple cruises on the Black Sea & in the Indo-Pacific.
    I swam in the Black, Caspian, Red, Caribbean & Yellow Seas. Also sailed on the "Green" Sea- known as the Sea of Japan; it has a greenish tint.
    U write about poverty, starvation & refugees in/from Venezuela but the same is now going on in Ukraine after the Western installed Poroshenko regime passed anti-Russian language laws & allowed the neo nazis terror:
    When the USSR fell apart in the early 90s. Ukraine was the wealthiest country of the ex soviet bloc. It's economy could be compared to that of France!
    Hitler and golodomor or Putin have nothing to do with the failure that Ukraine is today! The country is ruled by ex cons or oligarchs. The elites provoke one revolution after the other! They even went to war with their own people(donbass). Ukraines current president owns the biggest media/TV company in the country. He uses his media network for his own support and as a weapon toward his political enemies!

    https://www.quora.com/Why-is-Ukraine-extremely-poor-It-has-the-most-fertile-soils-in-the-world-but-it-has-a-GDP-of-1800-per-capita-comparable-to-the-poorest-African-countries

    https://www.wfp.org/stories/10-facts-about-food-insecurity-ukraine
    https://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/ukraine-life-expectancy

    By some estimates, 30% of the population, or ~12.6-13.5M fled abroad, mostly to Russia, with 3,269,992 there as of 2015, to find work & better living conditions:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_diaspora#After_1991

    The coup, clashes & war in Donbass killed up to 13K people, incl. 3,318 civilians:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_Ukrainian_crisis#Total_deaths

    So, by ur own logic, Poroshenko is worse than Maduro!
    Ur English could use better spelling- use the spell check- maybe then u'll learn it better!

    So if democracy means nothing and you don't give a fuck about the people of Venezuela, then what you are saying is that Maduro needs to go because you think you can steal more money from a low life puppet of the US like Guano than the democratically elected Maduro...

    Are we unhappy? France already kept 60 tons of Gold from Venezuela last month, that was stored in Paris. UK kept 45 tons.

    At the moment we make huge profits with Maduro in charge. He obviously is too weak to prevent that.

    Who else is going to store gold there after this? U'll loose more than u'll gain- in this life, u r going to pay for everything sooner or later! They'll know who is going to buy/move that stolen gold & make a note of it, & may be rataliated against later.

    Colombia and Brazil have no air forces to defend themselves and they are far away from US to be protected. In two or three days of intense bombing they will be left with a worse economic situation than Venezuela.

    External  military intervention by yank and co , will unite the Venezuelan  population behind  government . And further liberalisation  of oil industry , leading to flow of profits out of Venezuela  will impoverish  the population and lead to  revolution against the liberal status quo  .  Sanctions , even if successful , will ultimately lead to a self sufficient economy .  Blood and tears will in any case lead  to victory of Venezuelan  people . By  different routes . I agree with decision by Venezuelan  government to reject this  "aid " , by yank . For this aid to be accepted then , first sanctions must be lifted, then the yanks must state that they recognise legitimate government  of Venezuela  . And aid should finally be distributed by UN . The ideal population for a nation is one , where famine and war can be tolerated by reserves or self sustaining agriculture and industry . Any nation heavily dependent  on trade , will suffer , during war and blockade .

    They operate israeli or french crap jets. Totally outdated. Only the peruvian upgraded mig-29 are dangerous. The rest is total crap. One missile one hut for all of them. That would increase the export sells of sukhoi. Russians should send their own pilots and do the job with 100 russian r-77-1.

    I mean if they are sure that US will attack and destroy them, that would be a great revange. Create millions of new refugees for US in matters of days. They will think twice next time they want to destroy a south american country.

    I failed to mention the Chilean AF F-16s & the French AF Mirages/Rafales that could be based in Fr. Guiana:

    In 2004-2005, most of the boat people were stopped & held at GITMO in Cuba. Ks of Cubans were allowed in, but the Haitians were sent back.
    Now, C. American migrants will wait indefinitely at the border while their asylum cases r being "processed". Trump wants to stop all non-white people from coming, period. That's why he separated kids from parents to discourage immigration & shot down the gov. to force the Congress give the $ for his border wall. After being told "no", he declared a national emergency to use nearly $7B in certain Dep. of Defence funding to build it:

    https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-usa-border-military/acting-pentagon-chief-not-decided-yet-on-funding-border-wall-idUKKCN1Q50QY

    Venezuelans willing to go North will need to use boats (the USN/CG can easily stop them) or land transportation to get to Panama, a US ally, & survive her border guards/army/police & the dnagerous roadless Darien Gap, barely passable in the dry season. So, most of them will stay in S. America.

    Something is fishy here: it would be a lot faster, cheaper & safer to send them by rail to China. "Storm damage" is a cover story.

    Will be interesting to see how the bully reacts to India helping someone they have designated as enemy of the people and persona non grata...

    Of course the US will be punishing India for buying Iranian oil soon too... will be interesting to see who blinks first.
