We pray the people of this Venezuela would seek You through all the violence, corruption, and hardships they are facing. Fight their battle for them, LORD God of mercy and strength. Take down the corrupt leaders from power, the criminals and murderers running free, and put good and godly people in power, who will trust in You and bring true hope and peace to this country. Open the eyes of the world to see the full truth of what is going on in this country, even though most of the media is not reporting what is going on. You God know, we put our trust in You. Amen.

Leland yee can have them. YOU can NOT! :>}
The puppet regime even had to call their master the Cubans and fly in troops to help kill the people.
Why is obama so silent as to the activities of his ideological allies?
The Colectivos are thug underclass given the job of thumping any middle-class Venezuelans who protest against the regime.
Visualize how things would be if Obama had recruited the inner-city street gangs as regime-security.
