The slide to chaos continues

Dueling factions in Venezuela stake claims at power

Absent a massively unlikely opposition coup, Maduro's government will continue to slide toward a party dictatorship headed by M himself as the actual boss.

At that point, foreign intervention, if quickly successful at minimal cost, would be doing the Venezuelan people a favor, though it is possible a majority, or close to that, of them would not see it that way and would flock to M's defense, much as most Cubans would likely flock to the defense of their Communist regime in the face of foreign intervention.

A point to ponder.
