    'Worst aggression in 200 years': Venezuela stands up to new US sanctions

    Published time: 25 Aug, 2017 20:55

    Caracas has blasted Washington’s new sanctions against Venezuela, following the latest round of restrictions that the Trump administration imposed on the oil-rich country, targeting its energy sector.

    On Friday, the Trump administration issued an order prohibiting Americans from dealings in new debt and equity issued by the Venezuelan government and by its state oil company, PDVSA.

    The White House said the measures “are carefully calibrated to deny the Maduro dictatorship a critical source of financing to maintain its illegitimate rule.”

    You can easily get agreement between a pig and a cow that wolves are bad, but they can easily fall into the trap where the pig says
    wolves should eat more beef, while the cow recommends a diet of pork.

    We wonder why we became the bully on the block? Why are our leaders are more concerned with intervening than taking care of our own?
    The left is often not correct, the right is often not right, and we the people are often wronged.

    Sidebar: As a person who has been a loyal SF Giants fan, I have always noticed how conservative the owners and managers of that team are.

    And the two main announcers Kruik and Kuip never venture into any arena of politics while commenting. (Although as a team representing the progressive area known as San Francisco, the announcers were always behind that long haired, amulet wearing semi-radical looking team's appearance. Back in the George W era, the team was put down for its "hippy appearance" but no one cared and we garnered record numbers of World Series Championships as our way of offering a retort.

    But both men have fond memories of their baseball training days in Venezuela and when a game is dragging will spin stories about how wonderful and vibrant a society it is. Sort of a sneaky way of saying that the "communist/socialist society" is more of a democracy than the pathetic dictatorship our Mainstream media reports on.

    The Oiligarchs continue to commit crimes against humanity through the blessings of the US politicians. Shame. Shame. Shame on every last one of them!
