What are your thoughts on the worsening crisis in South America as the US and other western states are declaring Venezuela’s democratically elected government illegitimate and increasing sanctions and pressure onto the country.

Some points to consider

- there has been widespread reports of famine in the country, due supposedly to economic mismanagement
-Venezuela’s has a large supply of natural Oil
-Maduro is a firm ally of Russia and is receiving military aid from Putin
-the country recently had an election which was observed as fair by the international community



Also I do t want this todescebd into s capitalist / socialist argument. Norway for instance has a high percentage of state owned assets than Venezuela

I will give this important thread the serious consideration it deserves. To begin with the claim that the Maduro government is legitimate ignores that the election was considered unfair by international observers and key opposition parties were band. Secondly venezuala is in absolute economic turmoil where millions of people have left for better living conditions. Thirdly Russia supports the government because it has an investment in oil and gold. I disagree that the election of Maudro was fair or that international observers thought it to be, the coup is not instigated by the US of Western allies but by the leader of the National Assembly a legitimate democratic body in Venezuala which has the power to enforce the constitution.

Maduro made the same play many other dictators have been making, setup a new national assembly and supreme Court by banning opposition parties and circumvent the constitution.
