Street protests? What street protests? I haven’t seen any of this on the news so obviously it never happened.
Crappy things happen to crappy countries because they have crappy governments. The math is simple.
I see another bow in the little islamist’s future.
What if South America turns totally against the US? What can we even do?
At least Maduro didn’t blame Bush. Obama does...
