Injustices throughout the world, man, the media only focuses on the ones that politicians are interested in.

This isn't about the good of the Venezuelan people, that's for damn sure.

If that's true, you gotta admit Maduro is more of an idiot. I dislike politicians in general, but when someone like Maduro is around it's not hard to find better qualified people.

I'd admit to nothing so ludicrous. Maduro is no idiot and has even under such trying circumstances, carefully manipulated the situation, from within. Quite a feat under prevailing conditions surely?
Gaidodo , on the other hand, appears a hand puppet, for those external foes, that want nothing but unrest, chaos in order to bring about change to suit own ideological bias.
The military and population have not to date fallen for this, even under such traumatic conditions, some of which you point out.

And while the politicians are only interested in a particular chaos, that need not be the most worthy of attention, certainly not the one to relieve the most human suffering, it certainly doesn't justify their fake concern, when they attempt the moral path....call it what it is.

Politicians are interested in people's support, not chaos. All politicians are self-serving, but extreme examples are dictators like Maduro who gather people's support simply for the purpose of robbing them.

In this case chaos is seen as the most likely path to lead to desired result. People's support? Really? Well they are not doing a very good job of it. A case of the usual chaos that has been the trademark of previous interventions and supporting instability.

Maduro is a clown who has dragged Venezuela into a bottomless pit. How do you expect him to rule a country if he canít even impress me personally as an engineer?

Sorry that Maduro fails to impress you. He sure does me. Amazingly even with such outside provocation, with such hardships imposed on the population, he remains in power, with the loyalty of the armed forces and still many of the populace.


Now who doesn't impress me, is that slick looking Gaidodo fellow, a stooge put in place by outsiders, even with being allowed back in the country to create greater instability, can't get the desired result.

You could start by learning how to spell his name. Itís Guaido. What proof do you have that heís been placed by outsiders?

Maduro remains in power for the same reason many powerful rulers around the world do. Nothing impressive about it. When you have near absolute power you are above the law in a country. Heís like Erdogan, Putin, Salman, Duterte, Netanyahu ... even Trump and Bolsonaro if they could acquire that kind of power, only far worse as heís beyond incompetent.

It doesnít matter anymore if youíre left or right wing.
