You'd be surprised at just how much he doesn't know. He foolishly claimed China doesn't need the US as a trading partner. Facts proved him very wrong.

Remember those first caravans than came through Mexico. That was a problem for the USA, but a near catastrophe for Mexico. It was like a horde of locusts for areas in Mexico that were nowhere near prepared for the impact. It was really bad.

The truth is that no matter what the USA does, Mexico is going to have to expend substantial resources on their southern border to control the flood of illegals wanting to come across their southern border. They are quickly getting a bigger problem than we have on our southern border.

This entire refugee situation is quickly changing the political topography.
Hope you're right!

The truth is. Either Mexico deals with the coming in or President Trump is going to stuff them back into Mexico when they try to come out. It goes unreported but Mexico is sick of these people.

Venezuela is still fielding a pretty strong soccer team.

Im pretty sure if China, Russia, and Cubia are involved in any way... America would have inserted small teams to gather intelligence and maybe sabotage a few targets. Could be CIA, or Military Special Forces, or Both.
4 points on a Compass, one large county. I guess 4 -6 small teams, 2-6 people in the team that speak the language and can blend in. Maybe working with few local assets. Mainly gather and report Intel, but if caught full denial.

I feel bad for the Locals of Venezuela, but for evil to Triumph all it takes is for good folks to do nothing. History repeats itself all the time.
People need to get informed, get organized and work with each other.
Im now with USFreeomArmy.com a "activist"type group that is nationwide. It Emails monthly Calls To Action and has local calls to action. Mainly asking emails to be sent to political officials for various reasons. Its a Grassroots style group of people who come together as Friends and Support the Constitution and founding documents of these great states. More groups like this would be helpful within Venezuela.. The people could have a Network.. but with the situation in Venezuela its also Proof more people need to look at Preparation for Hard Times of ANY Kind. More stored dry goods, bartering items, 1st aid, improvised alarms, improvised weaponry. Knowledge and Skills would all come in handy to help those individuals and his group, or family. if they have worked together in some way and prepared, whole communities could come together and be beacons of hope for each other in dark times. .

Its almost incredulous that the country with the largest oil reserves in the world, cannot supply itself with enough gasoline to keep its wheels turning.

Not so much "can't" as "won't". Overthrow the government and start over.

Last I heard, the main refinery was only operating at 20% capacity and the two auxiliary refineries where totally shut down.

Sounds like a total mess. The plants where not kept up, they are failing left and right, and they can't get people or parts to keep them running. I don't think any external upstream support companies will touch those projects with a ten foot pole right now either.

Agree and I don’t really blame the external companies. It would be wasted money and effort to support a failing endeavor. But I’d bet that if the Venezuelans put an end to the government and socialist methods, those same companies would come flooding back in full force. The people who know how to make it work are probably still there and willing. If they had the parts and tools and a reason to work, it would all turn around rapidly.

So he's proven it - he doesn't know the difference. Or maybe he thinks that he can get readers' minds to conflate one with the other. Very typical of Russian dezinformatskiya.

Hello Fellows.

How have you been?

I have been struggling (as usual), nothing new. There is a lot of Venezuelans here and jobs are scarce. Anyway I am doing what I can.

Yes, our soccer team boys are leaving it all in the field.

I think having mentioned a bloodbath was coming, right? Well, I have news from the Colombian border. Paramilitary corps from Colombia, leaded by a warlord called El Paisa has unchained a war against the colectivos gang. The bad guys Maduro got out the jails, and armed to have a grip against population now are being targeted by a much stronger, better trained, better armed, and combat experienced paramilitary corp. Go figure. There have been already 12 terminated. And many more to come, if we believe the words of El Paisa. In the social networks there has been a lot of difussion to this messages. And he already sent a video of a chopped up guy that is...gruesome. Never though in my life that someone could post such stuff. Gore at its best. Colectivos are brave against unarmed protesting people, armed with a cardboard that says "fuera M4dur0". Now they are facing oblivion. My homeland is in the process of being torn away. There was hardly something we could have done.

Reports from my former town are scary. I just wait for the moment I can come back, pack all of our belongings, store it in my folk´s building and sell the house. Will keep the cat though. It´s not the same peaceful city I was so happy to have moved in.

I don´t know if I am too old to start again, but sometimes I feel like so. I´ve been thinking on going to the place I had my homestead and try to make a living but...I don´t know how feasible is that. I don´t care to rise chickens and eggs for a living. I won´t have to worry about paying rent, nor other exhausting stuff. But my kids won´t be with me and that is too painful just to think about it. This is an endless nightmare. Hopefully, this will be resolved this year. I have been detailing some stuff in my articles in other website. As I have had plenty of free time, I have done some designs of a couple of useful devices that I am sure have a market niche. I hope to be able to makeshift some prototypes soon. I feel the need to contribute to the US prepper community with something useful, because I have received assistance without interest, and I appreciate that, deeply. Thanks God I have the materials knowledge to build something according the specs I need will be enough.

A blockade is an effort to cut off supplies, war material or communications from a particular area by force, either in part or totally. A blockade should not be confused with an embargo or sanctions, which are legal barriers to trade.
There I fixed it for ya.

More made up **** from fake news willy.
