There is a once-proud country in the world where chaos now rules. A wholly corrupt and self-serving government held a bogus national vote which was hopelessly distorted by lies, external manipulation and illegal acts. That government obstinately refuses to leave office and persists in mad and dangerous acts and in defending the indefensible. The people face imminent collapse and the rest of the world are clamouring for them to return to the path of rationality and get rid of the appalling junta now in charge. Some even talk of civil war, the military on the streets, epidemics and famine.
That's just Britain. You should see Venezuela.
Is OP an apologist for Venezuela? Trying to make out the UK as worse than the basket case of that South American country? I guess that's what regimes do in order to survive, make themselves out to be the only thing that matters to their people even though reality stares them down and the people they serve are fleeing on a daily basis.
I've yet to hear of hordes of Brits heading for Dover or Southampton or Hull trying to get away...
Everywhere seems a shambles at the moment. It's like a gory horror movie where you don't want to look but, goddamnit, you have to.
Seems like the OP just hates democracy when it gives results which he/she doesn't like.
Its all about getting Venezula on the side of the US and other colonial powers nothing to do with Democracy, the people or human rights
Which is why no suprise Maduro is more friendly with Russia, Iran, China etc
John Bolton and Jared Kushner are two bad influences on Donald Trump who said in his campaign he was against these regime changes and even going back long before then he was a slight critic of the Iraq war.
Whats shameful is so many EU countries support this which just goes to show they aren't much better than Washington.

@Quady Do you have any idea what you are saying?
In the week when they discovered that the average Venezuelan had lost 40 pounds in weight due to food shortages, one of the regimes upper echelon generals was injured in riots. There was a photograph of him being lifted into an ambulance.
He had more chins than a Chinese telephone directory.
Plus ca change.
