Four tons of cocaine worth more than $165 million seized off of the Spanish coast last week has been linked to Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro, US authorities said.

Spanish, Colombian and UK police working in conjunction with the US Drug Enforcement Administration intercepted a ship carrying the drugs 300 miles off the coast of Galicia, in northern Spain.

Maduro is like Solozzo. But stupider.

Maduro has finished thoroughly destroying his nation. It is sad.

A beautiful nation with abundant natural resources was destroyed by “socialism” in a decade. Maduro and his cohorts make Castro look brilliant by comparison.

If Maduro was an American he would be a priminent figure within the DNC. He has done what they wish they could do and if we lived in a sane world people would correctly extrapolate the results to the probable outcome in the United States.

The virus is already showing us how prone to dictatorial rule we have become.

I would think with this COVID thing going round it would be easy to knock him off.

I’d say bomb his palace. Sending drugs to a nation is an act of war.

Then what do you call sending a virus to a nation?

First, prove China sent this to the USA, much less originated it.

Second, the USA is the patient zero site of many flu strains. Should China bomb us for that?

So classify Maduro as a narco terrorist and drone his ass.

“First, prove China sent this to the USA, much less originated it.”

Permitted might be a better way to put it, but doubting that China was the source of the infection. Seriously?

DeLorean was trying to resurrect a company he believed in. Are you implying Maduro was operating on a larger scale, trying to buttress the economy of the New Venezuela?

My take: Dirtbag, after money and power. He has to pay off his droogs (Clockwork Orange reference) somehow.

Well, I guess I was saying, like everyone, Maduro needs cash. Maybe he needs it for his security detail. Maybe he can use it to hand out goodies to Venezuelan VIP's. Since he doesn't have a productive economy to draw on, perhaps he is looking for a source of quick money to make his country not look as bad as it is.

Again, maybe he is feathering his own nest pending a quick Exodus from Venezuela. Just throwing out possibilities.

And yes, got the Clockwork Orange reference.

Do you have a source to back up that statement?
