    Are you okay with being the proud new owner of Venezuela? Are you okay with possibly making Venezuela even worse and then walking away when it doesn't work out conveniently? Because both of those outcomes are extremely likely.

    BTW, it appears your two year wet dream is over; and you got the booby-prize. Don't worry, we'll keep reminding you about.

    "wet dream"? One must wonder about what you are thinking about when using a sexually loaded term, perhaps because you have had one on Friday night.

    I don't know what will happen next but I do find it rather unusual that as of 10:41 EDT today, the president has only tweeted twice. One might think that if the Mueller report was seen as exonerating him, he would have been doing his usual celebratory keypad twitching. We will see what comes next, hopefully.

    It's such a huge mess with layer upon layer of repression. If you take out Maduro, you've got Diosdado Cabello, after him you've got the PSUV, after that, the colectivos and more beyond that. The US had better consider carefully what it is signing up for. However, the USA is a sovereign nation that has every right to refuse to be an accomplice to Maduro repressing its own people. The US has a right to have no trade nor diplomatic contact with the Venezuelan dictatorship whatsoever.
