Assuming the crisis in Venezuela would be in the same position it is today, which is doubtful because Obama and Hillary favor the socialism and despotism of Maduro, it is certain that with Russia publicly trying to bring about some sort of negotiations to keep Maduro in power, the United States would succumb to the Russian dictates and find a way to assist Maduro while claiming they brought meaningful change for the people of Venezuela. Remember it was socialist champion Bernie Sanders that claimed the American dream was easier to attain in Venezuela than in the United States.
Because of sanctions brought about by the United States on Maduro and his cronies, the exit from Venezuela by Maduro in one form or another seems all but certain. The one thing that was allowing Maduro to stay, the supposed support of the Military, is now crumbling. Maduro has moved large amounts of gold out of the country and many of his top cronies are having their families leave the country.
Russia is ready to take part in bilateral talks with the United States over the issue of Venezuela, Russia’s foreign minister told the United States. It is in the interest of Russia that Maduro stay in power. It gives Russia a secure place from which to operate. It also gives many terrorist groups a secure place from which to operate. However, Maduro staying in power is the worst of all scenarios for the people of Venezuela. New open and free elections is the desired goal of those seeking the best for the people of Venezuela.
We saw collectivism and Islamic Jihad supported under the Obama regime and now openly supported by many Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) members of congress. With Russia entering the negotiations, which should be opposed by the United States, history shows that the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) would use that as an excuse to allow Maduro to stay in power and continue to oppress the people of Venezuela. That is what collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats - all virtually the same) do. They all favor tyranny and oppression over freedom.
The defeat of Hillary by Trump in 2016 is not only a happening that exposed the anti-American sentiment within our DOJ and FBI, but is now critical for the people of Venezuela and is critical for all who oppose oppression and tyranny and support freedom and liberty.
