I don't understand. Why do democrats want to live like this? We must elect Trump president for life to prevent this. Durr.

The doomsday prepper militia types would thrive in this sort of environment.  I don't understand why they don't vote Democrat so that they can usher in the end times faster and become lords of all they survey in the post apocalyptic wonderland.

With our track record I would take anything seriously.

The US doesn't exactly have credibility in this regard.

With any other administration I'd laugh that off, as any sane administration would just be sitting back watching Maduro's government implode as the disruptions compound each other.

But with this particular administration they would be more than dumb enough to get involved and fark it up. With John "turgid for war" Bolton all stupid options are on the table.

Why have a war when we could just fund and arm the rebels?

Wait, hang on... they have oil? Then bomb the crap out of them. /s

UncleDirtNap: Wag the Dog
Step 1.  Find a Dog, if a Dog can't be found create one.


First step: create the enemy. Sometimes this will be done for you. < --- We are here.

Second step: be sure the enemy you have chosen is nothing like you.
Find obvious differences like race, language, religion, dietary habits
fashion. Emphasize that their soldiers are not doing a job,
they are heartless murderers who enjoy killing!

Third step: Once these differences are established continue to reinforce them
with all disseminated information.

Fourth step: Have the media broadcast only the ruling party's information
this can be done through state run media.
Remember, in times of conflict all for-profit media repeats the ruling party's information.
Therefore all for-profit media becomes state-run.

Fifth step: show this enemy in actions that seem strange, militant, or different.
Always portray the enemy as non-human, evil, a killing machine.

Sixth step: Eliminate opposition to the ruling party.
Create an "Us versus Them" mentality. Leave no room for opinions in between.
One that does not support all actions of the ruling party should be considered a traitor.

Seventh step: Use nationalistic and/or religious symbols and rhetoric to define all actions.
This can be achieved by slogans such as "freedom loving people versus those who hate freedom."
This can also be achieved by the use of flags.

Eighth step: Align all actions with the dominant deity.
It is very effective to use terms like, "It is god's will" or "god bless our nation."

Ninth step: Design propaganda to show that your soldiers
have feelings, hopes, families, and loved ones.
Make it clear that your soldiers are doing a duty; they do not want or like to kill.

Tenth step: Create and atmosphere of fear, and instability
and then offer the ruling party as the only solutions to comfort the public's fears.
Remembering the fear of the unknown is always the strongest fear.

There's a big CIA presence in Panama for a reason.

Yeah, this has our fingerprints all over it.

Oil. Check.
Tainted elections. Check.
Turmoil in the citizens. Check.

Now, we will go in, get rid of Mudura, save the day, and steal the oil for our own use.

I was supposed to be in Bogota for two weeks.  Canceled my trip.

Bolton is gonna get Colombia involved and Maduro will kamikaze Bogota.

Interesting (in a bad way, obviously).

This seems ham-handed for a U.S. effort, not to mention an unlikely target. My suspicion is still "woeful maintenance + rock-bottom morale + brain drain = complex systems break down"

Or a shortsighted indigenous effort.

I am still skeptical the US has any involvment.  Occams razor would lead you to go with massively underfunded and left to rot infrastructure systems and internal dissidents being the cause way before you get to CIA conspiracy plots.

That would be par for the course with the Trump regime.

/why not both?

He's not wrong. Socialism is widely known to effect Ohm's law in the immediate vicinity of any kind of downward wealth transfer. Capacitors used in electrical transformers just can't cope.

True facts.
