In what was once one of the most high-income, modern and "developed" countries of the Americas.
Maybe it’s not too Christian, but I have limited empathy for ‘em. They voted for this, at least once.
Just wait till the mass migration starts heading for the US border.
Why...but...(mouth agape in utter confusion and bewilderment) this just can’t be.
This has been the plan for several years. Nicholas Rockefeller told Aaron Russo around 2000 that they planned to destroy Venezuela and kill Chavez. Don’t know if they got Chavez or not, but their plans for Venezuela appear to be playing out.
Go to The Guardian where the commenters are blaming the USA, lol!
The leaders of all countries in the hemisphere, except for Castros Cuba, are meeting now in Washington DC. These leaders will be remembered as those responsible for the first mass famine in the Americas...
And it will be their responsibility, why?
Chavistas have a lot to answer for.
Vote stupid, live stupid.
We can’t feed the entire world and we can’t bail out every failed state of socialists, communists, Islamic idiots and other self destructive people.

A comment after the article:
I am an expat living in Venezuela. First let me say that my reaction upon reading this article was, “FINALLY! Someone outside of Venezuela ‘gets it’”. However, I would note that this article only address the economic condition of the country without including the political context. Currently, at least 70-80% of the population desperately want a change in government. The current regime has suborned all of the democratic institutions of democracy and ignores the letter and intent of the Constitution. It is using its control to blatantly intimidate the population and block all of the Opposition’s efforts to effect democratic change.
All of the conditions for a successful popular uprising to overthrow the Maduro regime already exist. Venezuela does NOT need, and is not asking, the International community to actively intervene. What it DOES need, and IS asking for, is that the International Community recognize the truth, condemn the existing regime, and acknowledge its lack of constitutionality and democratic legitimacy. When the Opposition controlled National Assembly declares that the president and supreme court are unconstitutional, they need the International Community to understand why, and to not call it a “Coup” and support the illegitimate regime, such as occurred in Honduras.
After the change in government, there is much that the International Community can and should do. At such time, help will be welcome. Right now, Venezuela only needs international assurances that when they do what is necessary, they will not be punished for it.
will Hillary help out? 250 Million can feed a lot of people
The people of Venezuela voted for this. Repeatedly. They are responsible.
Sean Penn should hold a Hollywood fundraiser.
That is the exact problem. They have destroyed their infrastructure.
It's not only the commies and socialists and it's not only South America.
Failed regressive ideologies destroy nations and cultures and lives around the world.

Ye reap what ye sow.
yike for a second my eyes saw “miss famine” and I thought “wow, there’s a beauty contest for miss famine!”
I have wondered if what that country needs is bitcoin...
Hear this out: a stable decentralized currency like crypto currency bitcoin with absolute ownership and impossible to control, stop or tax (until they confiscate snmart phones) .
It would establish ownership of wealth, a vehicle for exchange, and as long as local currency is not used it would starve the tyranny of money of any sort. The government would have to either go full North Korea or collapse.
This is what comes from policies and programs now favored by everyone of consequence in the Democrat Party - and a significant number of those in the Republican Party.
Alan Greenspan has said that Venezuela is America’s future...
