Is Guaidó a socialist? If he is, nothing will improve.

If this coup attempt fails, The Venuzzies are beyond fucked.

The American leftists who would usually be screaming for a "humanitarian mission" are now so TDStarded that they'd scream about "warmongering orange man imperialism" if Trump lifted a finger. Couple that with the fact that Trump doesn't give two shits about Venezuela, and he'll laugh as they all starve, and that all adds up to Maduro staying in power, and that country staying very royally fucked, for a very long time.

Good.

We have had troops ready in Colombia for a while now, and two naval ships are on the way now....

If USAID can get them food, they have a good chance of success

Putin has to be angry that his puppet keeps defying him. If Maduro goes and Trump does nothing to stop it, I will expect Putin to releases all the blackmail he has on Trump.

Supposedly China has a destroyer parked off the coast and Russian special ops are guarding fat boy.

Conflicting accounts from WSJ and the fake Washington Post about how close Maduro actually came to being outed. Either it almost happened, or it wasn't even close:

WSJ:
Venezuela’s opposition held secret talks with members of President Nicolás Maduro’s inner circle in recent months in an ill-fated bid to get Mr. Maduro to leave power and install a united interim government, according to U.S. officials and Venezuelan opposition figures.

The talks involved the highest levels of Mr. Maduro’s regime, including Defense Minister Gen. Vladimir Padrino, Supreme Court Chief Justice Maikel Moreno and the presidential guard commander and head of military intelligence, Gen. Iván Rafael Hernández. The goal was to remove Mr. Maduro and restore democracy in the country, according to U.S. special envoy Elliott Abrams and people close to Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó.
Fake WaPo says US 'outed' the coup participants:
The administration, seeking to undermine Maduro’s trust in those around him, decided to out Padrino; Maikel Morena, the chief justice of the Supreme Court; and presidential guard commander Ivan Rafael Hernandez Dala by name, saying they had agreed to sign documents supporting the constitution.
But the Journal says the coup participants were moles for Maduro:
The person familiar with the talks said not everyone on the Venezuelan government side was acting in good faith. This person said Gen. Padrino feigned his role as a conspirator, while at the same time informing Mr. Maduro and top officials in the regime, as well as the Russians.
If so, well played, Maduro. Well played.

What is best for Venezuela? Maduro, well we know how that has turned out, but what do we know about Guaido? I have read he is a socialist yet the term democracy keeps getting thrown around. Socialism always works:rolleyes:. I also read that the Venezuelan people like the gov taking care of them(socialism). If this is the case things will marginally improve(a very good amount at first). Lately our involvement in any gov change has sucked. Should we militarily meddle in this one? I have not read enough to have an answer but maybe some of you have.

My personal opinion is that we should not interfere. The down side of this is the communist getting their grubby paws on their oil reserves (the only reason to be involved with Venezuela) and a massive exodus of refugees which are inevitably going to flee to the US seeking political asylum because the other neighboring South American country’s are already denying asylum (my wife has a friend who is Venezuelan and her family has been trying to flee to other South American countries for years and has been repeatedly denied)
Venezuela is a perfect example of what happens when you don’t do “socialisms right” and sadly the American socialist are conveniently ignoring that, And if we allow them to come here, we are going to be importing a group of people who have already screwed up their country, and quite quickly in the scope of things. Which again, sadly, the American “socialist”. Want
