Chilling Video - Maduro's Venezuelan National Guard Abduct HS Girls Off The Street
It's not getting too much attention right now, but Hugo Chavez's successor Presdidente Nicolas Maduro is consolidating control with an iron hand and rewarding his followers the way dictators always do.
Venezuela itself is in dire economic straits after years of Chavez's 'Bolivarian revolution' mismanagement. Inflation is rampant, the currency is essentially worthless, and the standard of living is collapsing as the prices of staples are through the roof. People are only allowed one shopping trip per week, and ala' Cuba, many times they don't find much when they get there. When faced with massive protests led mainly by students and middle class, Maduro's response has been to b;same the U.S. and crack down...hard.
Oddly enough, I've yet to hear President Obama say 'Maduro must go' the way he talked about Mubarak...oh wait...this is a hard Left socialist dictatorship! Why would anyone even ask?
