1. "Hundreds of people have died at hospitals due to power blackouts..." . Well done Elliott Abrams, J

Bolton and Pompeo. The end justifies the means, indeed.

2. They did this to themselves.

A centrally planned socialist economy was doomed to failure from the start. It doesn't help matters when you hand over key sectors of the economy to inept cronies either. They need no help from us to fail, but is sure as hell is going to cost us a lot to clean up the mess they left behind.

Hopefully we'll see Maduro do the Mussolini from a lamppost soon. Either way, I think we are entering the end game.

13. You made the claim now prove it with verifiable facts and evidence that speak directly to the point.

No false arguments or BS propaganda allowed.

What you have is the end results of socialism. What would have been better is a well placed 7.62 when all of this started and none of these people would have had to die.

That would have been the proper intervention.

20. You know that definitive proof of neocon crimes take a while before surfacing. Any one that thinks

this massive failure of the power grid just happened to happen at this most convenient time is a damn fool.

25. It seems your neocons care nothing about people as they slap on sanctions to decimate

Vens economy and when that doesn't materialize in the coup de ta the ghouls hoped for, well then scuttle the electrical grid so hundreds of innocent civilians perish.

God will catch up with the neo's in due time, indeed.


Hope I get to witness it!

Why would any business invest in today's Venzuela with the recent history of confiscating private property.

Your are just upset that another dictatorship may be lost.

33. As I'm well aware it isn't worth my time dealing with @neocons so that will just have

to suffice. Already wasted more keystrokes with you than necessary and threw in a youtube clip to boot.

Bye.

16. You are confusing Neoconservativism with Realpolitik

I am in favor of four things:

1: Rolling back the evils of Socialism and Communism wherever we have a good likelihood of success.

2: Preventing the spread of influence of the other two major world powers, Russia and China, wherever in the world they attempt to spread.

3: Rooting out and destroying the influence of and spread of Radical Fundamentalist Islam wherever it exists.

4: Promoting the interests of the US and it's people before that of other nations.

I firmly believe those four points best serve the interests of the American people. If as a side benefit other people around the world have a better life, so much the better, but that is not my primary intent.

Neoconservatives have the ideal of spreading American values and American style liberal democracy around the world. I don't harbor any such fantasies. So long as nations, particularly those within our hemisphere, remain firmly in our camp, and don't have an egregious record on human rights, that is good enough for me.

I understand this is ultimately a struggle for control of the world and I have no desire to be on the losing end.

You truly are a despicable thing.

These people are eating garbage and pets but as long as Putin looks good supporting Maduro you have an erection over it

17. It's really good to have this laboratory

to observe the effects of a long term power outage on a modern city-scape. There have been all kinds of theories and conjecture as to what would happen here. Now we get to see it play out in an actual situation. I hope our planners are watching carefully.

We clearly need to harden our electrical grid. Less external internet exposure, and the regions need to be more independent.

19. This video addresses that. It's well worth the watch

It is a bit disturbing because it was made in the early 80's and focuses somewhat on an outage in the Twin Towers but it's still a great watch. He talks a lot about the impact of a prolonged failure of the grid on a large city.
