  • Maduro is in such a weak position, it’s shocking that this doesn’t happen to him every week. Until he’s gone, Venezuela is trapped in a no win position.

    assassination is not always the recommended action but many times despots such as Maduro who has destroyed Venezuela and the lifes of many Venezuelans; who have had to flee their nation; deserve to be removed by all means.
