Take the money and run. But one billion divided by 4000 generals is not enough. :(

I am not just correct. I am always right. Just like mdiehl. ;)

And I have sympathy for your GAS, I know how it feels. Usually applies to cameras, but in your case guns. ;)

Nicolas Maduro Blocks Incoming Food For His Starving People

JAZZ SHAW
Posted at 5:31 pm on February 9, 2019

There’s a standoff (or perhaps a showdown) taking place on the border of Venezuela at the moment. It’s not 5,000 American troops (as hinted at by John Bolton) facing off with the Venezuelan army. It’s not even the army of Colombia, though their new President has been making noises along those lines and moving some of his troops. It’s a caravan of supply trucks with food and medical supplies intended for the starving people of Venezuela, but the supplies aren’t making it into the country. The reason? Dictator Nicolas Maduro won’t allow them to cross the border. (NPR)


Trucks full of food and medicine have arrived at the Venezuelan border, setting up a showdown between President Nicolás Maduro and U.S.-backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó.

The aid convoy arrived at the Colombian border city of Cucuta, The Associated Press reports, but Maduro and the military have blocked the Tienditas bridge so the trucks cannot enter Venezuela.

“The United States is prepositioning relief items — including food, nutritional supplements, hygiene kits and medical supplies — in Colombia so they are available to reach those most in need in Venezuela, as soon as possible,” a U.S. official told The AP.


Cucuta is the only major bridge and highway crossing into Venezuela in that area and Maduro currently has the entire thing blocked off with tractor-trailers parked sideways across all lanes. So he’s not only holding up the aid convoy but all traffic into and out of his country.

The tyrant had a ready explanation for why he was doing this. He said that Venezuela “has never been nor are we a country of beggars.” That’s a prideful boast, but nobody is calling the Venezuelan people “beggars.” They’re hostages to a socialist tyrant who is using starvation and a paucity of medicine and other necessities as a tool to keep his people beaten down. Sick and starving citizens who are forbidden to own guns are much less of a threat to a tyrant than well-fed, healthy people with firearms.

What kind of a monster does this? Maduro knows that his people are dying, either from starvation and neglect or simply being murdered in the streets by his thugs. Meanwhile, the dictator lives high on the hog in his palatial compound and goes on foreign jaunts where he eats the finest steaks. This is a scene straight out of the days leading up to the French revolution. Let the people eat cake.

If the Venezuelan military doesn’t stand up to this madman soon, something more drastic may happen. Whether it’s a bloody rebellion in the streets (which would be disastrous for the people of Venezuela) or an external push from the Colombian army (a disaster of a different kind), this story doesn’t end well. There’s no guarantee that a military junta would turn over power peacefully, but it would likely be the method of removing the monster involving the least bloodshed.



I guess Maduro would rather have tv crews showing film of long lines at stores with empty shelves, than for those tv crews to be showing convoys of food and medicine rolling into a country that has been run into the ground.

Truck Wars !!!
:D

Quote:
... Trucks driven by supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido nearly rammed into a blockade by security forces still loyal to embattled President Nicolas Maduro in an attempt to reach aid in Colombia.

Images show a red truck trying to forcefully pass through a checkpoint in Mariara, in northern Venezuela a few hours outside of Caracas, on Thursday as the security forces appeared to stand their ground.


Lawmaker members of the Venezuelan National Assembly and supporters of Juan Guaido, who many nations have recognized as the country's rightful interim ruler, clash with security forces as they block the road on the outskirts of Mariara, Venezuela February 21.

The national guardsmen in anti-riot gear positioned a trailer truck in front of a tunnel, blocking the highway westward. A shouting match and scuffle ensured, with the guardsmen firing tear cag before the lawmakers eventually forced their way through and resumed their journey.

US SAYS IT WILL DELIVER AID BLOCKED BY VENEZUELA, SETTING UP CONFRONTATION WITH MADURO REGIME

The truck is part of a cross-country caravan led by Guiado for the border with Colombia, where much of the U.S.-supplied aid is warehoused. Guaido has called for thousands of ordinary Venezuelans to assemble at the Colombian border on Saturday to help bring the aid across.

The clash came as Maduro announced Thursday plans to close the vast, jungle border with Brazil a day after he blocked air and sea travel between Venezuela and the nearby Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao, where the first cargo of relief supplies arrived earlier that day.

Maduro said he was also weighing whether to shut the border with Colombia, where the bulk of aid is being stockpiled and exiled leaders have been gathering ahead of a fundraising concert Friday organized by British entrepreneur Richard Branson, in which several major Latin American pop artists will perform ...

More border wars ... but sounds like goo-ee-dohs "forces" are gaining traction ...

... Soldiers from the Venezuelan national guard have left their posts ahead of an opposition-led effort to bring aid into the country, Colombia's migration agency said.

In a separate development, Venezuelan troops have fired tear gas at people looking to cross into Colombia to work.

Tensions have been rising over a row about the delivery of humanitarian aid.

President Nicolás Maduro said the border with Colombia is partly closed to stop aid being delivered.

But self-declared interim president Juan Guaidó has vowed that hundreds of thousands of volunteers will help bring in the aid deliveries, which include food and medicine, on Saturday.

The first delivery of aid has already entered Venezuela through Brazil, Mr Guaidó tweeted.

The delivery of aid to the stricken country has proven to be a key area of contention between the two men who see themselves as Venezuela's leader ...
