Venezuela: To Solve a Tinderbox | The Zeroth Position

There is no easy solution to the mess in Venezuela. The answers offered so far are not answers at all. A direct US invasion would only place Guaidó in power, and his social democratic policies would do nothing to alleviate Venezuela’s economic and social catastrophe. No plebiscite or election would change Venezuela’s situation. Continued street protests without co-opting the upper echelon of the military are pointless. Leaving Maduro in power and hoping that his “Bolivarian” socialists willingly abandon power is stupid and dangerous.
