Venezuelan President Maduro Puts The Military In Charge Of Overseeing Food And Medicine Distribution

BBC: Venezuela army deployed to control food production and distribution

Venezuela's military has taken control of five ports in an effort to guarantee supplies of food and medicine.

In a decree, President Nicolas Maduro has ordered the army to monitor food processing plants, and co-ordinate the production and distribution of items.

Venezuela is going through a deep economic crisis despite having the world's largest oil reserves.

Basic products are increasingly hard to find and many say they struggle to feed their families.

The Venezuelan Bishops Conference said the rise of the military is a "threat to tranquillity and peace".

Leaving military to handle the essential is like open doors to a future military dictatorship.

When the military distributes the food, it'll distribute to the military first (and probably only).

Young Communist,

Maduro is a communist. He gave more to the cause than you did.
His credentials are impeccable.

How can you disparage Maduro's effort,when he has done so much more than you?

I am willing to admit that communism will work for a group the size of 150 or less. I have the 'datas'. I give you the Mennonites.

How come you do not follow their lead? Because it might result in actual work?

Are you allergic to work? I am sure in Europe you could get disability payments. Maybe you could get labeled as 100% disabled. You are after all communist.

Maduro is no communist.

He's a social democrat completely out of his depth dealing with the situation in Venezuela. The communists are in the favelas and countryside preparing for civil/class war.

Whether "we" like, or hear about, it or not, there are millions of Venezuelans who have no interest in going back to the "good old days" when the vende patrias were in charge. They would rather eat shit. There is going to be a fight.
