seems Bolton's plan is to help big American business interests, especially big oil, exploit Venezuela...we've gone down that path many times in South America, Central America and the Middle East...mostly with unhappy endings...

were them the good old days that birthed MAGA?

there you go again...

it was only $2 billion, and although Obama signed off on the loan, it was negotiated by GWBush on behalf of the Export-Import Bank of the US...and there was a benefit to US businesses since it committed Petrobas to buy US produced goods and services...

amazing how con myths have such staying power and the ability to sway so many seemingly bright peeps...

Gotta give Trump credit for a pretty good speech yesterday. He was looking at Maduro, but was talking to anyone who might/should be concerned about socialism creep in US politics. I thought (hope) he was effective. Always helps when he can stay on (teleprompter) message.
