Venezuela is a mess. There are lines to get bread and toilet tissue. There are people starving, people who have no electricity or utilities. Many in Venezuela are without basic necessities. Except for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his family; they are living a luxurious life with all they need and all they want. It has always been the case with socialism that the elites prosper while their people starve.
Because the political and the humanitarian situations are so dire in this once prosperous nation, President Trump has been mulling over his options. Violence is now the hallmark of political discourse in Venezuela. The recent elections, which are said to have been rigged, were marred by several deaths. The winner of the election, President Maduro, who is looking more and more like a dictator, had his factions attack the opposition party at the National Assembly. The nation is quickly spiraling downward into full on tyranny, with every attempt at opposing the powerful Maduro political machine, being squashed.
And it is this mess which has Trump thinking about what can or should be done. And while he has not announced a specific plan to deal with Venezuela, he has said, “We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary. We don’t talk about it. But a military operation, a military option, is certainly something we could pursue.”
What that looks like, we can only theorize. But one thing is certain, the people of Venezuela are in a very serious and life threatening situation.
Trump’s mention of the military option infuriated President Maduro’s son, Nicolás Maduro Jr. According to Venezuelan media sources, he arrogantly and quite naively threatened, “If the U.S. soils the homeland, the rifles would come to New York and take the White House.”
Let’s get something straight Nic Junior; one, if anyone has “soiled the homeland” here, it is the likes of you, your father and deceased former President-turned-dictator Hugo Chavez. Between the three of you, Venezuela, a once proud capitalist nation prospering on its vast reserves of gas and oil, has become a filthy, crime ridden, third world socialist state complete with starving masses and jackbooted thugs.
Two, go back to school and learn some facts. You threatened that the rifles would “come to New York and take the White House.” The White House isn’t actually in New York. So, yeah, you might want to go back to world history class and get that straightened out. And, any attempt to take the White House will be met with the overwhelming lethal force of America’s finest.
Here’s hoping Trump does not need to use the military option in Venezuela. But if he does, people like this whiny Nic Jr. will no doubt run away like the cowardly socialist pajama boy thugs that they are.
