It benefits USA as well, as per the article.

To bad for Venezuela that no-one would want to invest in them, because they could use a heavy fuel refinery.

Sure.  I'm happy to invest in them.  Sorry, I'm not taking payments in Bolivar, dollars or oil.  What's left in your gold reserves?

Nobody has been tougher on Russia than the chaos goblin.


other than trying to remove sanctions, add them to the G-8, let them have Crimea, let them pay the Taliban to kill US soldiers, you know, the usual traitorous stuff.

China for instance is happy to invest massively in Angola etc., to get a hand in their oil revenue.

They could easily build a refinery in Venezuela, but won't, because Venezuela nationalised their oil industry once.

China is really, really, good at building random ghost towns, which Angola for some odd reason doesn't mind accepting.

Gee, how did Venezuela happen to end up in that position? I'm sure Uncle Sam had nothing to do with it.

How many times has Mexico nationalized their oil industry?

The US prevented Venezuela from diversifying its economy?

What a neat trick.

Don't forget the tariffs on Canadian lumber which cause the US to import more lumber from Russia.  Or the trade war with China over soy beans, which caused China to buy more soy beans from Russia.  It's almost like every move Trump has made benefited Russia in some way.  Weird.
