Hillary would've been just as worse?

Quote:
(CNN)President Donald Trump would not rule out the possibility of a military intervention in Venezuela on Friday, stepping up rhetoric directed at a regime the President has already accused of being led by a "dictator."

Asked about the possibility of a military intervention in response to the mounting crisis in the country, the President said that is something the United States "certainly could pursue."
"We have many options for Venezuela. And by the way, I am not going to rule out a military option," Trump said. "We have many options for Venezuela."

He totally adlibbed that. McMaster, Mattis, or Kelly wouldn't have advised saying that and Bannon probably wouldn't like it. Nobody has control of this moron, including himself. Great situation we're in here.

Just a brief overview of the situation, as I understand it:
- The USA and allies have been trying to bring down Maduro for a long time via sanctions, rigging oil prices, etc. Sadly, Maduro has resorted to some non-Democratic tactics to try to retain power.
- However, all of Venezuela's elections were certified by outside observers as legit. The opposition party only protested the last election because they knew they'd lose in a landslide. This was an attempt to create a fake narrative about rigged elections, with help from the USA.
- The USA put literal war criminal Elliott Abrams in charge of our Venezuela envoy.
- The USA tried to smuggle weapons into Venezuela via "aid packages". Abrams used this same tactic to get arms into Central American countries in the 1980s.
- Venezuela stopped these "aid packages" with force. Then people in our government claimed Venezuela was denying aid to their people, when they were actually trying to stop outside meddling.
- And now this:

Trump & Bolsonaro Join Forces to Back Regime Change in Venezuela & to Attack Media as “Fake News”
