Politics and Government / Re: Presidential Crisis in Venezuela

I remember a theory that the Iraq war was started because Iraq had plans to sell oil for Euros and that would have threatened the petrodollar... Now that China is also using a different currency for oil sales US Dollar is getting weaker but it's not like USA can do much to China.

What they can do is pick on smaller countries that try to do deals with China.

But let's be completely honest here; the current US government LOVES dictators.  But Venezuela's is a SOCIALIST dictator, and that makes him the enemy.  If he were a capitalist dictator, like Vlad, the US would probably be calling him a "strong leader".
It's not about ideology, it's about oil. Venezuela is selling their oil exclusively to China, which is no bueno according to the US and A.

I hope the Yellow Vests are careful about who exactly they're taking information from.  There are already reports that the complaints and such against Macron are being hyped by the same Russian bots that hyped Donald & Brexit.  They wanted Le Pen to win instead of Macron, so they wouldn't be sad if Macron was taken down by angry people in France...

Correct.

She made a bunch of other comics like that, and also a bunch where she's basically saying  "What do you mean I'm a bigot?  I support Trans rights, except for the part where trans people have rights."

You'd be surprised at how many gods are lounging around high schools due to lost bets.
