    Maybe it is a good thing Russia has the pee tape, it might be the only thing left protecting us from an extra useless, extra stupid, invasion of Venezuela.

      i think the physical deployment of troops might play a bit bigger of a role than any kompromat ever would, seeing as intervening now would likely cause a proxy war with russia that is even less politically and socially tenable than just storming venezuela and ruining everything iraq-style (like was apparently in the card at one point) or having your sex life revealed to a nation of prudes is.

          oh absolutely not. even before we get into the debate about whether or not venezuela has too much private ownership within its borders to be considered socialist, you will almost never find...

          Honestly, I work with a fairly large number of Venezuelans that my company rescued evacuated transferred from Venezuela recently and every one of them advocates for U.S. intervention despite me chiding them about CIA regime changes and whatnot. It was eye opening, and they are all educated, which I would have thought were in favour of socialism.

          oh absolutely not. even before we get into the debate about whether or not venezuela has too much private ownership within its borders to be considered socialist, you will almost never find venezuelan expatriates or migrants of really any kind who support maduro or chavez and their policies, and almost all venezuelans who have internet access won't either, because those people have money or power and generally vote against the PSOV. support for socialism in venezuela is almost exclusively a lower-class thing (to the point where when chavez was almost ousted in a coup in 2002 it was a mass-movement of the poor who reinstated him), which incidentally means almost any venezuelan, online or otherwise, that you ever interact with is probably going to support the opposition.
