Venezuela Announces Martial Law In Border State, Dispatches 1500 Soldiers (ZeroHedge, Aug 22, 2015):

When it comes to the complete economic and social devastation of Venezuela, lately the only thing readers seem attuned to is when will the social implosion lead to renewed political tensions which will likely result in another violent political overthrow, one which may or may not involve the local military. Today Venezuela took a step in that direction when its president Maduro declared a state of emergency in a border region near Colombia following an attack by smugglers in which three soldiers and a civilian were injured, resulting in 60 days of martial law in five municipalities of the state of Tachira. He also said the closure of the border, announced on Thursday, will be extended until further notice.

    I still can’t work out whether the mess in Venezuela is engineered by the U.S. or the result of indigenously incompetent socialist mismanagement.

    Or both!

    I just couldn’t quite grasp the level of interference and interest that the US had on Venezuela, but after watching “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised ” about the American attempt to pervert the Venezuelan Election by kidnapping Hugo Chavez……..

    It became clear the level the US Economic Hitmen will go to to rape a country of its assets. Venezuela has many ans like Iran is a worthy target.
