Latin American leaders remain silent on Venezuela's human rights abuses | Fox News Latino
From Mexico to Brazil, leaders in Latin America have largely kept silent amid charges of human rights abuses in Venezuela and are unlikely to speak out against their neighbor at this week's Summit of the Americas.

Many Latin American heads of state gathering in Panama City are bound to oil-rich Venezuela by business dealings if not ideology, and are put off by recent U.S. sanctions against some of the country's officials. Others do not want to be seen as doing Washington's bidding, particularly as they face protests and plunging approval ratings at home.
Latin America is a disaster from the Rio Grande to Tierra del Fuego, a collection of failed nations ruined by socialism and anti-Americanism. When will they learn? I feel bad for the people of these countries, their futures and livelihoods have been ruined by idiots stuck in the 1960s ranting about mythical Yankee Gringo imperialists. I think it's time for another round of Manifest Destiny - southwards this time. It's the only way to ensure political and economic stability in the Americas.

Chavez and Maduro have destroyed Venezuela, using it's oil wealth to imprison their neighbors. They are like drug dealers except they use cheap oil to addict the nations of Latin America to dependence and failed socialist policies.
