The situation in Venezuela is a situation that will come to developed countries sooner or later as well. The demonstrators are demanding better security, an end to goods shortages and protected freedom of speech. Pretty similar to what the demonstrators of the Arab Spring wanted.
The leaders in charge in Venezuela try to blame other countries for the problems. Pointing to the US for plotting to destabilize the government. That’s also a typical move to shift the blame. I understand why you guys in the US hold onto your guns and I also understand why the government wants to take them…
